Father Guy Mary-Rousselière (Le Mans, France 1913-1994 Mittimatalik) was a French-Canadian anthropologist, missionary priest at Mittimatalik, and string figure collector. He was involved in recording Inuit songs,[1] film-making, and had photographs occasionally published in National Geographic.[2] He excavated many artifacts given to the National Museum in Ottawa.[2]

He was editor of Eskimo magazine for several years, a member of the Northwest Territories Historic Sites and Monuments Board for many years, and was a recipient, in 1988 from the Honourable Bill McKnight, Minister of Indian Affairs and Northern Development, of a Northern Science Award recipient in 1988.[2]
