Robert F. Heizer, Editor

Charles E. Kelsey was appointed by Congress in 1906 as a Special Indian Agent for California working for the Bureau of Indian Affairs. He was a San Jose attorney. C. E. Kelsey graduated from Amherst College in 1884. As an advocate of Indian rights, he specialized in documenting bands and tribes without reservation lands. The 1905-1906 census was part of the effort to determine how many had no land. One result of this effort was the purchase of land for small reservations, called “Rancherias“ for landless Indians. Kelsey wrote a book Indian Rights and Wrongs (1907) and was secretary and a director of the Northern California Indian Association of San Jose. Later Kelsey was president of the Conservation Association of Southern California.
