CBC North Interviews Adcock About Rare Historical Document Being Shared Through Twitter

Christina Adcock, cross-appointed faculty in Canadian studies and history at the University of Maine, was interviewed by CBC North radio Nov. 26 about a rare historical document being shared via tweets. Drawing on her ongoing cultural and environmental research about nonaboriginal trappers in the Arctic and Subarctic, Adcock provided context as she described the historic value of diary entries of Canadian trapper Bud Murphy being distributed through a Twitter account. Adcock communicated with Bud Murphy’s grandson Derryl Murphy about the uniqueness of the diary, which led to providing comments and context to CBC North on its value as a rare and remarkable historic account of the daily life of a trapper in 1929. The interview is slated to air Nov. 27 and will be available online.
