Custodial history

Scope and content

Merril Menzies was an economist and brother-in-law of Dr. Glen Green, one of Diefenbaker’s closest political supporters in Prince Albert. In late 1956 Green gave Diefenbaker a paper by Menzies on the possibilities of northern development in Canada. As a result, Menzies became Diefenbaker’s chief economic advisor and the force behind the Northern Vision policy of the 1958 campaign. He resigned his position prior to the 1963 election.

This subseries contains reference material accumulated by Merril Menzies while serving as Diefenbaker’s economic advisor.
