I found this in the newspaper Feb 2 2002.
Andrew Cuellar, the last known surviving graduate of the Carlisle Indian Industrial School died Monday at home in Maryland. He was 103 years old.
An Oklahoma native, Cuellar attended the Shawnee Indian Mission School before enrolling in Carisle which was a model for government-run boarding schools for American Indians.
The schools taught Indian Children farming and trades while squelching their langyuage and traditions.
