"This compilation begins in the "twilight period" that followed the amalgamation of the North West and Hudson Bay companies, and extends into the years of fresh economic activity that enlivened the district in the late 19th century. "The Introduction and the Documents are arranged with the idea of stressing the peculiarities of Thunder Bay history, especially for the reader unacquainted with it," explained Elizabeth Arthur. Subjects covered include jurisdiction problems, the 1855 Wolseley expedition to Red River, vital surveying between 1855 and 1870, and the construction of the transcontinental railway."--Champlain Society

The French-Canadian under British rule : 1760-1800 by Elizabeth Arthur( Book )

5 editions published in 1949 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This thesis does not attempt to trace British policy in Canada in the late eighteenth century, nor to discover the springs of that policy in other parts of the Empire or in Europe. It is only incidentally concerned with many of the statutes and ordinances pertaining directly to Canada, for their import was not always understood by the French-Canadians in the way that they were intended in London or even in Quebec; likewise, the military phases of the dispute between Great Britain and the American colonies, and even the invasion of Canada in 1775-76 have been most summarily treated. The vast volume of secondary material upon the late eighteenth century in Canada deals almost exclusively with these subjects, either justifying British policy, attacking it from the point of view of the modern French-Canadian, or attempting to reconcile these divergent views. Instead, this thesis attempts to disoover the effects of the transfer of authority from French to British hands, in so far as that transfer affected the population of Canada in 1760. It is thus primarily concerned with the reactions of one generation of French-Canadians to the substitution of British for French rule, and to the economic and social changes that they encountered as a result. The fact that these reactions were frequently negative or else rested upon an erroneous conception of the policy of the British government has often led to the conclusion that they were either negligible or non-existent.

Adam Mabane and the French party in Canada : 1760-1791. by Elizabeth Arthur( Book )

5 editions published in 1947 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This thesis does not attempt to present any complete picture of the period 1760-1791 in Canada, even though the French party of Adam Mabane was an important influence in Canadian affairs throughout most of those years. It attempts, rather, to trace the growth of one political group, and many of the events of the period that did not seem to pertain directly to that growth have thus been omitted. More particularly, this thesis is subject to the same limitations from which the French party suffered throughout its career: Its emphasis is entirely upon the political, judicial, and religious aspects of the period, almost to the exclusion of economic and social aspects.[...]" --
School Social Worker's Perceptions of the Frequency of Actual andPreferred Engagement in Role Related Activities by Elizabeth Arthur( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this study was (1) to determine the frequency in which school social workers in Virginia engage in and prefer to engage in social work related activities and (2) to determine if the frequency in which the social work related activities the school social workers engage in is related to select variables. After a comprehensive review of the literature, a survey questionnaire was developed by the researcher and served as the data collection instrument. Participants in this study were school social workers in Virginia. Participants were asked to respond to an online survey questionnaire. Fifty-five percent (138/252) of the surveys were returned in usable condition. Data collected through the survey questionnaire sought to answer 16 questions including the actual and preferred frequency of engagement in social work related activities and the relationship between the frequency of engagement and gender, years of experience, length of contract, competence, person primarily responsible for determining the activities of school social workers, number of schools served, number of school social workers in the school district, size of the school district, socioeconomic status (ses) of the school district, educational level, percentage of students with Individualized Education Programs (iep), and type of student school social worker's work with. Descriptive and inferential statistics including frequency, means, percentages, mean ranking, t-tests, anova and post hoc t-tests were utilized. Analysis of the data suggested similarities in the activities school social workers actually engage in and the activities school social workers prefer to engage in such that the activities most frequently engaged in involve liaison work, consultation with administrators, interaction with community agencies, working with a multidisciplinary team and report writing. Activities that school social workers engage in less frequently are conducting research, providing staff training and attending court. Each of the independent measures were significantly related to the frequency of engagement in at least one of the activities except years of on the job experience and socioeconomic status of the school district. Based upon the findings and conclusions, recommendations for practitioners and future research are presented.

THUNDER BAY DISTRICT by Elizabeth Arthur( Book )

5 editions published between 1973 and 2016 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is a pioneering excursion into the documentary history of a region of northern Ontario. Previously published original documents on the history of the Thunder Bay area have been of two kinds: accounts of the fur trade before 1821, and evidence supporting rival claims in the boundary disputes of the 1870s and 1880s. Although this collection does not include some illustrative material on these topics, its main purpose is to shed light upon other aspects of northern development, including the best-known and most pervasive problem-isolation from the rest of British North America. This volume deals with events up to 1892, considerably later than any of the other volumes in the Ontario Series. The documents tell the story of the silver mines-from the first rumours of wealth, through the excitement of the Silver Islet era, to the closing down of the mines in the early 1890s-and place the era of transcontinental railway building as part of local rather than national history. The documents also treat the development of numerous communities created through mining activity and railway building, showing how precariously they were based, how jealous they were of rival towns, and how anxious for the favours they might receive from government or company decisions. This collection should provide a basis for continuing research into northwestern Ontario history
