Biographical history

Miriam A. Leith graduated from the Macdonald Institute of Guelph in 1962 before going on to graduate school at Aberdeen University. She later returned to Guelph as a part of the Extension Education, OAC from September 1963-1964. Her interest in ëEskimos and Indiansí began when she spent time as a volunteer with the Indian Eskimo Association at Broughton Island, N.W.T. from May ñ August 1961. When she was finished university, Miriam went on to work as an adult educator for the Government of Newfoundland until 1970, followed by her becoming an adult educator for the Government of the Northwest Territories. Miriamís research and interaction in the N.W.Tís was an in depth look at the life of Eskimoís in the 1960ís and 1970ís. Her dedication to the communities she was involved in and educating of adults in small, rural communities, gives us insight into the neglected people of the north.†
