Name of creator
Gérald L. Gold (1945- ) was born in Canada and educated there and in the United States, obtaining his PhD from the University of Minnesota (1972). Following teaching assignments at Guelph and Laval universities (1970-1975), he joined the Department of Anthropology at York (1976) and served as department chair (1984-1987). He is the author of several studies dealing with French-speaking minorities in North America including, 'Saint-Pascal: changing leadership and social organization in a Quebec town,' (1975), 'The role of France, Quebec and Belgium in the revival of French in Louisiana schools,'(1980) and others. His recent interest in northern communities is reflected in his work on Timmins, and the publication, 'Inter-group relations and the organization of ethnicity in a northern resource community,' (1984).
Scope and content
