Biographical note:
David M. Hickok was born in Mt. Vernon, New York on October 7, 1924. He received a B.A. degree from the New York State College of Forestry at Syracuse University in 1947.  Hickok spent much of his career as a natural resources officer working on issues pertaining to Alaska. He worked as a planning officer for natural resources for the U.S. Department of Commerce from 1965-1966, at the same time as he served on the President’s Review Committee for Alaska, and for the Federal Field Committee for Development Planning in Alaska from 1966-1970.  Hickok later worked at the University of Alaska Anchorage, first as the director of the Sea Grant Program (1970-1975) and then as director of the Arctic Environmental Information and Data Center (1972-1988).  In the mid-1970s, he also worked as an associate for the consulting firm Arctic Environmental Associates (AEA), along with Denise Ganopole, Bruce Hickok, and Sam Means; AEA was involved in investigating non-Native land use in the Arctic from 1941-1976.  Among Hickok’s many other positions during his career, he also served as chairman of the Interagency Alaska Ecological Reserves Council (1977-1979), a member of the Polar Research Board, National Research Council, National Academy of Science (1977-1980), president of the Arctic Division, American Association for the Advancement of Science (1978), president of the Alaska Academy of Engineering and Science (1982-1987), and chairman of the Council on Natural Resources Information Management (1986-1987).  He was married to Mark Hickok in 1974.

Collection description:
This collection primarily consists of papers collected and created by David M. Hickok that relate to land use in the Arctic, especially dating from his work as a natural resources officer for Alaska from 1962-1970 and as director of the Arctic Environmental Information and Data Center (AEIDC) from 1972-1988.  These papers include speeches, articles, and other writings by Hickok and others; reference files relating to research and policy in the Arctic (including papers on the Arctic Research and Policy Act of 1984 and from the Arctic Research Commission); reference files kept by the AEIDC on D-2 lands issues, Alaska Native issues such as the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA) and the Alaska National Interest Land Claims Act (ANILCA), and the Naval Petroleum Reserve Number 4 (Pet-4) in Alaska, later known as the National Petroleum Reserve in Alaska (NPR-A); papers relating to the establishment of the Alaska National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR); and records relating to the 1973 lawsuit Edwardsen v. Morton, regarding pre-ANCSA Alaska Native land rights in the Arctic.

The collection also contains a small number of newsletters and brochures dating from Hickok’s service as president of the Alaska Academy of Engineering and Science (AAES) from 1982-1987.  There are additionally a few personal letters, ephemera, awards, and other personal papers kept by Hickok.

SERIES 5.  ARCTIC ENVIRONMENTAL AND INFORMATION DATA CENTER (AEIDC) PAPERS; 1923-1986.
This series contains papers collected by the Arctic Environmental and Information Data Center (AEIDC) and organized by them into topical files on three separate issues relating to land use in the Arctic: the AEIDC Native files; the AEIDC D-2 land files; and the AEIDC Pet-4 files.  The original order of this series has been maintained.

Series 5.  Subseries 1.  Alaska Native files; 1962-1986.
This subseries contains original papers and photocopied documents that were maintained by the Alaska Environmental and Data Information Center as the “AEIDC Native Files.”  These papers were microfilmed at an unknown date, and the files are arranged by AEIDC’s original microfiche numbers.  These numbers are as follows:

  • “ancsa” indicates Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act papers;
  • “anilca” indicates Alaska National Interest Land Claims Act papers, including some material related to D-2;
  • “natorg” indicates papers regarding Alaska Native organizations;
  • “native” indicates papers regarding Alaska Native issues.

The titles of each folder are the original titles in the microfiche index, and a copy of this index is in Box 16, Folder 1.  The location of the original microfiche is unknown.

SERIES 7.  EDWARDSEN V. MORTON PAPERS; 1952-1980.
NOTE: Materials in Box 35 may be restricted for research use due to confidentiality concerns.  Please consult an Archivist before requesting materials from this box.
This series contains papers relating to a 1973 U.S. District Court case brought by Charles Edwardsen, Jr., executive director of the Arctic Slope Native Association, and other Native organizations against the U.S. Secretary of Interior, Rogers C. B. Morton, and other officers of the Department of the Interior.  The plaintiffs alleged that the Department of the Interior had violated their rights to Arctic Slope lands and waters before the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act of 1971 by illegally transferring land to the State of Alaska, among other actions.  The case was ruled in favor of the plaintiffs and established that Alaska Native groups could sue for trespass against those who occupied or used Native-claimed lands before 1971.  In 1975, David M. Hickok and his firm, Arctic Environmental Associates (AEA), were contracted by the U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Indian Affairs, to investigate non-Native land use in the Arctic from 1946-1971 in order to help settle these incidents of trespass .  The papers consist of AEA reports, correspondence, legal statements, litigation documents, other related law cases, and interviews with investigative witnesses.  This series is arranged in its original order.
