Series summary: Research materials regarding the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA).
The second Alaska Legislature established the Institute of Social, Economic and Government Research (ISEGR), as part of the University of Alaska, on April 13, 1961. ISER was originally part of the University of Alaska Fairbanks. Currently ISER is an institute within UAA’s College of Business and Public Policy.
The function of the Institute of Social and Economic Research (ISER) is to study economic and social conditions in Alaska.
This collection consists of records collected and/or created by ISER for the study of the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA) and the resultant Alaska Native regional corporations. The majority of these records concern a Ford Foundation grant to study the development of Alaska Native regional corporations. The collection is divided into four parts: grant administration files (1972-1976); general analytical files (1965-1976); Alaska Native regional corporations analytical files (1972-1979); and research files and publications (1967-1989). The grant administration files concern the Washington, D.C., consulting firm of Robert R. Nathan Associates, and the Alaska Native Foundation, the organization which received grants for research and programs related to ANCSA. The general analytical files concern native corporations under ANCSA. They include files on finances, land holdings, litigation, legislative history, organizations, and other aspects of ANCSA and native life. The Alaska Native regional corporations analytical files concern the status of the thirteen corporations, including operations, descriptions, interviews, investments, ANCSA implementation issues, and lands and resources. These records are derived from newspaper and magazine articles, corporate annual reports and newsletters, and other relevant materials. The original or copied clippings, annual reports, and newsletters are also included in this part. The general research files and publications concern ANCSA and its implementation.
