Name of creator
Beatrice Lois May Long [Lois Long] was born July 8th, 1922 on a farm in the Merivale area of Ontario to Michael Long and Phoebe Oakley. After attending school, Long trained as a laboratory technician, becoming a registered medical technologist. In 1955 Long took the position of X-Ray Operator on the Arctic supply vessel, C.D. Howe. While on board, Long kept a diary and took sever hundred photographs of life on and off the C.D. Howe. Medical clinics were held on the ship and occasionally ashore for Inuit families in settlements along Northern Quebec, the west coast of Hudson Bay, Baffin Island, Resolute, and Craig Harbour on Ellsmere Island.
In 1998 Miss Long donated a collection of Inuit sculptures, collected during her travels in the Arctic, to the Carleton University Art Gallery (CUAG).
Miss Long died on August 14th, 2017
Material was transferred to Archives and Special Collections by the Long estate in April 2019.

Generated finding aid
Some of the material found is this fonds is historical in nature and contains language or depictions of people representative of its time. This includes wording, cultural references and stereotypes that are no longer used or appropriate today. Historical language has been maintained in its original form, in keeping with archival practice, to preserve the context in which the associated records were created. This approach, while potentially upsetting, allows for the critical assessment and questioning of historical material by contemporary researchers.
The views expressed in the material should be taken as a product of the era in which it was produced and in no way reflects the current opinion, goals or ethics of Archives and Special Collections or the Carleton University Library as a whole.
