Name of creator
Gerry Scott received a Master's degree from SFU in 1991 for his thesis entitled Beyond Equality: British Columbia New Democrats and Native Peoples, 1961-1979. In the preface to his thesis, Scott writes, "My interest in the evolution of the political relationships between British Columbia New Democrats and the aboriginal peoples of the province was first aroused in 1974. At that time I was working as a researcher for the government caucus and I undertook preparation of background papers on aboriginal land claims for the consideration of caucus members. In the 1970s and 1980s I continued to be involved in many of the issues under examination in this thesis through my work as Executive Assistant to Skeena MP Jim Fulton and as Provincial Secretary of the NDP during the years of Bob Skelly's leadership."
Archives and Records Management Department held the tapes without any documentation linking them to Scott's thesis.

Restrictions on access
There are no privacy restrictions on the interviews, however, for preservation reasons access to the sound recordings is restricted due to the age and fragility of the storage medium (cassette tape). The Archives will provide access only through digitizing the originals. As of October 2012 only one of the interviews (item 1, Dave Barrett) has been digitized. Consult the reference archivist for more information about accessing these records.
The creator of the interviews (Gerald Scott) has retained copyright ownership to the works. Please consult the reference archivist for more information about permission to use copyrighted material.
