Alan Chambers fonds

  • Fonds
  • 1972-1978

The records document Chambers' activities in three research projects that all attempt to reconcile the conflicts between preservation and development interests in resource management. The first project is documented extensively. The last two projects offer only a glimpse into the response of the Nazko-Kluskus Indian Band to the issues raised in the Purcell study. These papers offer valuable evidence of the continuing conflict surrounding resource management and Indian land claims in B.C., and Chambers role in attempting to find a resolution. There are three series of records that correspond to these three projects. Because original order has been lost, it has been reconstructed with reference to the functions and activities of each project. Files within each series have been arranged in chronological order. Undated documents have been placed at the back of each file.
