Morgan's journey - and everything in her life, and in her America, that has led to it - is made vivid and real. This is how Morgan the daughter, the lover, the independent thinker, the maverick, becomes the Morgan who brings together a brilliant, unlikely group of explorers and rallies them through physical and emotional dangers, crises and storms, across the ice to the Pole. As she and her companions head back to their base, built near the hut from which Scott's expedition set out; as they struggle to cross once more, before the austral winter begins, the magnificent and terrible terrain that is the last great wilderness on earth; as Morgan's own physical, intellectual and emotional certainties are severely tested, we come to see in her a hero for our times. Her epic journey of the heart and mind and body becomes emblematic of the dangerous passage all of us face as the millennium approaches

The French Canadians under the 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, 1821-1892; a collection of documents by M. Elizabeth ARTHUR( Book )

2 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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
