Abstract
This thesis attempts to answer: 1) How has history and evolution shaped the relationship of Aleut and Eskimo populations? and 2) What is the relationship of Aleuts and Eskimos to other Native American populations? Questions are addressed using anthropometric measurements and classical genetic markers. Relethford- Blangero method was applied to athropometrics of the study populations. Results were compared to Nei’s genetic distance matrix of classical genetic markers. Multivariate analyses were used to determine relationships among Aleuts, Eskimos and other American Indians. This study shows a close phylogenetic relationship among Aleuts and Eskimos. Anthropometrics reveal a close relationship between Savoonga, Gambell and St. Paul due to shared European admixture. Despite shared population history, St. George did not cluster with the other Bering Sea natives in the PCA, NJT, or unscaled R-matrices; highlighting affects of genetic drift on St. George. A close relationship between Aleuts, Eskimos, Northwest, and Northeast Natives was evident.

Abstract
It is the opinion of most Alaskan consultants that many Native children need tonsillectomies and adenoidectomies to prevent otitis media, mastoiditis, and hearing loss. This study was designed to obtain an unbiased, statistical test of the validity of these clinical impressions and opinions. The survey was financed by the U.S. Children's Bureau and carried out mainly by consultants to the Washington State Department of Health and to the Alaska Department of Health.

Abstract
The distribution of the types of a genetic polymorphism in a given population is an objective of considerable anthropologic interest. Although the fact that two populations may have similar polymorphic ratios is not evidence of close relationship, it can be concluded that little intermixing could have occurred if these ratios are quite different. In practice, such information is useful in planning searches for genetic linkage, and it may also lead to uncovering unexpected origins of certain families. For these purposes, the proportions of types of two red cell enzymes--acidphosphatase and phosphoglucomutase--and of two serum factors--haptoglobins and group specific component (Gc)--were determined in four ethnic groups native to Alaska.

Abstract
A series of rubella epidemics occurred in Alaska in 1963-1964 in isolated Eskimo and Aleut communities in which the disease had been absent for at least 20 years. Details of one of these epidemicsappear elsewhere. In this communication, an attempt will be madeto analyze the epidemiological implications of these outbreaks. Several controversial concepts will be expressed concerning the infectiousness of rubella as opposed to measles and the problemof subclinical and second infections with rubella.
