The Malheur Agency in eastern Oregon was established in 1873. It was abolished in 1882 after most of the Indians for which they were responsible were removed to the Yakima Agency in Washington[1].


A few administrative records for the Malheur Agency are in the Pacific-Alaska Regional Archives of the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) in Seattle[2].
