2. IHB Review of Marker. The Indiana Historical Bureau (IHB) in 2010 prepared a preliminary report reviewing the marker for accuracy and relevance. The report states, "If this marker were rewritten today, it would include more contextual information on the medical practice at that time and would omit ambiguous and trite phraseology such as “World Citizen” or “Friend of the Indian.” IHB would also look further into any abolition activity."
