Scope and Content: Series consists of records pertaining to Simpson's work in cross-cultural education from the 1970s to the early 1990s, predominantly at the University of Western Ontario's Faculty of Education and the Centre for International Business Studies. The records include lecture notes, articles and readings, speeches, visual materials such as overhead transparencies, course syllabi, reports, teaching materials such as case studies and exercises, correspondence, clippings and student assignments. The subjects documented include teaching students of different cultures, First Nations thought systems and education, education in the developing world, and inter-cultural issues in international management. A number of subject files contain resources on ethnicity, I.Q., social class, compensatory education and language and their effect on learning and success. There are also a number of files inherited by Simpson, created by another professor at the UWO business school, Joseph J. DeStefano. Courses Simpson taught at the business school included "The culturally different child" and "Problems in cross-cultural management." He taught the latter course at UWO in the spring of 1989 and then in Germany at the Koblenz School of Business in the fall of 1989. The series also includes files from workshops Simpson ran in 1980 for CBC North managers following his report on "The use of radio and television for education purposes in the Canadian North -- what can be learned from the experiences of the Third World?"
Restrictions on Access and Use: Two files contain student profile cards from the management courses with personal information. These files are closed to researchers until 2100 and 2101 respectively.
