Description: Arthur was interviewed on July 5, 1976. Art Davis was a professor of Sociology and was associated with the studies done on northern Saskatchewan between the years of 1959-1964. He hired Jim Brady as a research technician/interviewer for work in the north. Davis knew Brady well, partly through his efforts to tape Brady's about his experiences. He talks of Brady's strategy in the north; his disillusionment with government; his contrasting lifestyle to that of Norris; Brady's work with the Centre for Community Studies with Davis; the efforts of Brady and Norris to instill pride in the Métis people; their disillusionment in the later years. Arthur also talks about trapping when he was growing up and his overseas experiences during WWII.
