History

The La Jolla Superintendency was established in 1909 when it was separated from the Pala Superintendency. It was returned to the Pala Superintendency in 1911[1].

Records

Agencies and subagencies were created as administrative offices of the Bureau of Indian Affairs and its predecessors. Their purpose was (and is) to manage Indian affairs with the tribes, to enforce policies, and to assist in maintaining the peace. The names and location of these agencies may have changed, but their purpose remained basically the same. Many of the records of genealogical value (for the tribe and tribal members) were created by and maintained by the agencies.

Some correspondence and a few fiscal records of the La Jolla Superintendency, 1909-1911, are in the Pacific Regional Archives of the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) in Laguna Niguel, California[2].

Microfilm copies of ...Narrative and Statistical Reports... for the La Jolla Superintendency and School, 1910-1911, are included in National Archives Microcopy M1011, roll 77[3], available in the National Archives system and in the collections of the Family History Library in Salt Lake City (their microfilm number 1724295).
