Notes
A survey of the complex processes of mission and conversion among the North Baffin Inuit focusing on the period from 1929 until 1947 and the death of Canon John Turner. "This article does not attempt to articulate the 'Inuit voice' in the discussion except in so far as that voice appears within the remarkable religious movements that have taken place" (p. [31]). In addition to the conflict between Anglican and Roman Catholic (primarily Oblates of Mary Immaculate) missionaries, there were "significant tensions between the missionaries (especially the Anglicans) and members of the other white institutions in Pond Inlet: the HBC [Hudson Bay Company] and the RCMP [Royal Canadian Mounted Police] detachment. For the most part the missionaries tended to avoid each other" (p. 40). "The objective for both the Anglican and the Catholic missionaries became to consolidate their work and extend their sphere of influence into new areas. The Catholic missionaries had a small established congregation in Igloolik but had been largely excluded from influence in both Pond Inlet and Arctic Bay. The Anglicans faced the problem of trying to distribute their resources over an increasingly large area, and an increasingly committed Inuit population" (p. 46). After the accidental death of Canon John Turner in 1947, the "Anglicans entrenched their work in Pond Inlet and made Arctic Bay (Moffet Inlet), Fort Ross and Igloolik outstations. This meant that Arctic Bay was visited two to four times a year by an Anglican missionary for the next 33 years. The church was left to the care of local catechists who had to struggle to make sense out of the debris from the prophet movement and Turner's sudden death. The Catholic Church concentrated its efforts in Igloolik, maintained a priest in Pond Inlet and visited the outstations. The hostility did not end between the Anglicans and the Catholics" (p. 47). "The opening years of Christian missions in North Baffin Island reflect the complex processes of cross-cultural communication and conversion. The aggressive competition between the Anglicans and Roman Catholics added a further level of confusion to the process: (p. 47-48).
Article includes map (p. 32) and is divided into sections: Early Missions in Baffin Island -- Establishing the Missions in North Baffin Island -- Interdenominational and Inter-institutional Tensions -- Expansion Outward from Pond Inlet -- Consolidation and Conflict with Inuit -- Conclusion -- Notes.

Notes
This article, introduced by "The Bishop's Letter" takes up the entire Spring Issue of the Arctic News which has a special title for this issue i.e. "Arctic Century". "Dear [Arctic] Fellowship Members: As this letter comes to you, it brings 'Arctic Century' instead of the usual 'Arctic News'. 'Arctic Century' is a review of the past -- a review of the accomplishments of our Church, through the work of countless consecrated men and women, both Eskimo and white, who have proclaimed the Gospel to the Eskimo people. .... 'Arctic Century' is a short rough outline of the evangelization of the Eskimos and of the development of the Arctic Church which now includes well over 7,000 of Canada's more than 8,000 Eskimos. These all worship, together with us, from a Book of Common Prayer and they have grown to be one with us as members of Christ in the Anglican Communion" (p. 2) -- The Bishop's Letter.
Article includes two-page map of the diocese of the Arctic (p. [8-9]) and two page chronological "Summary" (p. 15-[16] which begins in 1752 and ends with 1957.
"[A]s a result of the teaching and service given by Anglican missionaries, the census returns of the Dominion Government show 82 1/2 per cent of the Eskimo people as Anglicans. At the time that this article is being written, the Diocese of The Arctic has in its vast area 20 established mission stations and 4 outstations. Of these, 5 along the Mackenzie River minister to white and Indian people, and the only one which is self-supporting is the parish of Yellowknife on Great Slave Lake" (p.. 3).

Bibliography: ll. 173-181.
"The purpose of this dissertation is to investigate the Inuit missions sponsored by the Church of England Church Missionary Society (CMS) in Baffin Island and the Moravian Church in Labrador during the approximately four decades (1880s-1920s) which preceded a major administrative upheaval in both those missions: the CMS withdrew from Canada in 1920 and the Moravians changed the course of their mission when they ceased to trade with the Inuit after 1926. During this forty-year period several developments in the spiritual, medical and educational spheres occurred at one or both of the missions. An investigation of some of these developments makes it clear that the growth of both missions was hampered by the decision, on the part of each missionary society, for financial and other reasons, to de-emphasize its northern mission in favour of the 'teeming masses' in China, Japan and Africa". -- Abstract.
Contents: Abstract -- Acknowledgements -- Introduction -- The Moravian Church, a Mission Church -- Moravian Missions: Labrador, 1880-1926 -- Church Missionary Society -- The Church Missionary Society: Arctic Missions -- Conclusion -- Notes -- Appendix -- Selected Bibliography.
Thesis includes chapter five "The Church Missionary Society: Arctic Missions" including missions/communities in Herschel Island and Baffin Island, within the Anglican Diocese of the Arctic.
