Frobisher Bay 1958: R42-3/1963-6E-PDF

"A survey of the material culture of the Frobisher Bay Eskimos provides a glimpse of one aspect of traditional Eskimo culture that is undergoing drastic change. During the summer of 1958 an extensive detailed survey of the material culture of the Frobisher Bay Eskimo population was conducted. Although this "Material Culture Survey" was principally directed at enumerating the various material possessions of the Eskimos, it also elicited systematic data concerning some other aspects of Eskimo community life, such as literacy in Eskimo syllabic script, incidence of hospitalization for tuberculosis, prevalence of wage employment, and birthplace of the family head."--Introduction.
