Administrative History

The Institute of Lamanite Research and Services (1960-1971) was a program affiliated with Brigham Young University to extend educational opportunities to Native Americans.

Kimball laid the foundation for the institute's creation in 1960 and was named honorary chairman. The Institute of Lamanite Research and Services was also known as the Institute of American Indian Studies and Research.
