Indian Tribes Associated With This Superintendency

History

The Campo Superintendency was established by separating it from the Pala Superintendency in 1910. At the time of its creation, the Campo, LaPosta, Manzanita, Cuyapaipe, and LaLaguna Reservations were under its jurisdiction. Prior to 1910, the Campo School and Reservation had been under the supervision of the Pala Superintendency, Campo being one of three of its districts.

In 1920, the Campo Superintendency merged with Soboba Superintendency and Pala Superintendency to form the Mission Agency, located at Riverside, California. Campo School continued to operate until it was abolished in 1933[1].

Records

A few school reports for Campo Agency are in the Pacific Regional Archives of the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) in Laguna Niguel[2].

Microfilm copies of ...Narrative and Statistical Reports... for the Campo Superintendency, 1910-1920, are included in National Archives Microcopy M1011, Roll 6[3], available in the National Archives system and in the collections of the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, beginning with their microfilm number 1724224. Reports for some years are missing.

Annual Indian Census Rolls were taken at this agency for 1916 thru 1920. These rolls have been microfilmed by the National Archives as part of their Microcopy Number M595, Roll 15.[4] Copies of these records are also available at the National Archives, their Regional Archives, and at the Family History Library and its family history centers (their microfilm number 573861).
