Name of creator
Arthur Thibert was an oblate who served from 1927-1936 in the Saint Joseph and the Mother of the Saviour Roman Catholic mission in the Southampton Island and Baker Lake area of northern Canada. A work by Thibert, Eskimo-English, English-Eskimo dictionary = Inuktitut-English, English-Inuktitut Dictionary, has been published.
Scope and content
Item is a 180-page typescript of an Eskimo-French dictionary written by Arthur Thibert in 1932. An accompanying note written by Mary M. Parsons reads as follows: "While stationed at Eskimo Point N.W.T. where my husband was the O/C the R.C.M.P. detachment, I was requested by the priests of the Catholic mission to type a copy of this dictionary. I would believe this book to be one of the copies I made at that time. Arthur Thibert whose name the manuscript bears, was a priest of the Oblates of Mary Immaculate and was, in fact, the priest who performed our marriage so I got to know him well. My part was done during the winter of 1941-42. [signed] Mary M. Parsons."
