  • Masters thesis. An examination of the skeletal remains of 40 Inuit from Kekerten, an historic whaling station in Cumberland Sound, Baffin Island dating from approximately 1857 to 1925, for evidence of disease in order to assess the health status of the Kekerten Inuit during the whaling period. Also investigated the effects of Euroamerican contact on Inuit health through a comparison of the pathologies recorded in the Kekerten burial population with those previously observed in two late prehistoric/early historic burial populations in Cumberland Sound.
