Richard Henry Pratt

Pratt as a [[United States Army|U.S. Army]] lieutenant in 1879 Brigadier General Richard Henry Pratt (December 6, 1840 – March 15, 1924) was an American military general who founded and was longtime superintendent of the Carlisle Indian Industrial School at Carlisle, Pennsylvania.

Pratt 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, save the man" in reference to the ethos of the Carlisle Indian Industrial School and efforts to forcibly assimilate Native Americans into dominant white American culture.
