Harriet D. Munnick was one of French Prairie’s most prolific historians. Unfortunately, much of her work was never published and is unavailable to the general public. All of her research and documents were donated to the St. Paul Mission Historical Society and the Board of Directors decided that the next step in their on-going preservation project is indexing, digitizing, and cataloging of all material in a PastPerfect database. Oregon State University graduate student Sara Case has been transferring all documents at the OSU Historical Archaeology Lab where the material is being organized, scanned and entered into a database.
