Scope and content

Subseries consists of material involved in Weller’s academic research on the circumpolar north. His research at this time relates primarily to economic development in northern regions. The material comprises primarily photocopied academic papers and newspaper clippings. The subseries also contains publications, text of speeches and other material created by government officials. The subseries also contains files for chapters of a manuscript; however many files are empty. The empty files are titled: “Definitions and Theories, Chp 1,” “The Land and the Climate, Chp 2,” “Peoples and Patterns of Settlement, Chp 3,” “The Settlement of the Provincial North, Chp 4,” “The Decline of the Resource Economy, Chp 6,” “Race, Ethnicity and the Canadian Provincial North, Chp 10,” and “Conclusions, Chp 14.” There may be connections between this subseries and subseries 3, as the files for earlier projects appear to have been used in later research.
