Custodial history

Scope and content

Series consists of records produced from the research and committee work of the staff of IPA/Henson College. Within the series are research notes and drafts for papers, finished papers, minutes from various meetings related to projects, correspondence directly related to projects and committees, grant applications, speeches, financial statements, agendas, and materials such as questionnaires and interview questions used to gather information for policy research. The content and nature of various projects and working groups undertaken by IPA/Henson College indicate the organisation’s interest in a few key areas, particularly public health, marginalised social groups, education, trade, and industrial relations. Most studies were carried out in the Maritime region, especially in Nova Scotia, and many in the Halifax region. Some of the projects include interviews with individuals and a great deal of personal information. Many of these records were provided code names by the researchers, and most such records are closed to the public.
