Richard Henry Pratt

Brigadier General Richard Henry Pratt (December 6, 1840 – March 15, 1924) is best known as the founder and longtime superintendent of the influential Carlisle Indian Industrial School at Carlisle, Pennsylvania. He is associated with the first recorded use of the word "racism," which he used in 1902 to criticize racial segregation. Pratt is also known for using the phrase "kill the Indian... and save the man" in reference to the ethos of the Carlisle Indian Industrial School and efforts to forcibly educate Native Americans.
