Biography:

Peter was an Oneida boy who spent two years at Wheelock's school. In 1769, Peter was pulled out of Wheelock's school along with the rest of the Oneida children. This event was one of the major reasons why Wheelock began to focus more on educating English youths. Another Oneida Peter was at the school from 1768-1769 but does not appear in the Project's manuscripts.
