SOCIAL TRANSITIONS IN THE NORTH. Project Administrative Records; 1989-2004. 9 cu. ft.

Social Transitions in the North (STN) was a project funded by the National Science Foundation, Office of Polar Programs, and sponsored by the Social Research Institute in Anchorage. The purpose of the project was to investigate sociological questions relating to demographic, epidemiologic, and domestic transition in a sample of Alaskan and Russian Far Eastern communities. Results of the investigation were to form a basis for international collaboration in areas of native health and rapid social change. The research team consisted of principal investigator Steven L. McNabb, co-principal investigators Aleksandr I. Pika and William W. Richards, W. Penn Handwerker and Richard G. Condon, On September 7, 1995, during the fourth and final year of the project, an accident claimed the lives of fourteen people, including McNabb, Richards, Condon, and Pika.

The collection consists of the unrestricted administrative records of the project. The collection is organized into six sections: project administration documents; project reference papers and presentations; project reference papers (subject files); project statistical documents and data, and software documentation; working papers, volumes 1-3; and post-accident documents.

The collection was presented to the archives by the Institute for Circumpolar Health Studies (ICHS) at UAA in 2004. The complete project records were presented to the ICHS by Marrianne McNabb and Maribeth Richards. The main project research records are held by the ICHS. Access to these restricted files is administered by that office.
