About the Archives

The mission of the Steven McNabb Archives of Social Research is to accession, preserve and make available sociocultural items and collections.  The items deposited are added to the permanent collection of the Archive.

The Archives are  named for Dr. Steven L. McNabb, sociocultural and applied anthropologist.  Dr. McNabb was a co-principal investigator with Social Transitions in the North, a long-term project investigating Native health and social change in Alaskan and Russian Far Eastern communities.  In 1995, during this project, a tragic accident claimed the lives of McNabb and several colleagues.

The Archives began in August 2011 with a generous contribution from Marianne McNabb, who gifted her late husband’s working papers, field journals, and photographs from three decades of tireless anthropological work.  The Archives are also home to the research of archivist Charlie McNabb, as well as a small but growing number of community collections.
