The economy and population shifts of the Eskimos of Southampton Island: R42-3/1959-1E-PDF

"At the present time, the distribution of the Eskimo population on Southampton Island shows a concentration in four settlements, all on the south side of the island in the South Bay Area. The largest and most important settlement is at Coral Harbour. Small settlements are situated at the mouth of the Kirchoffer River and at Munn's Bay. Close to Munn's Bay is the community known as SNAFU, so named because a derelict military landing barge of that name is beached in the vicinity."--p. 2.
