The results of a 1355 square degree survey of high Galactic latitudes conducted from 1990 to 1995 with the Arecibo radio telescope are presented. The majority of the survey was performed at 430 MHz with a 32 channel × 250 kHz filter bank sampled at 4 kHz. A 7 σ sensitivity of ∼1 mJy was obtained for pulsars with periods down to ∼3 ms. This survey yielded five millisecond or recycled pulsars and 14 slow period pulsars. In addition, one millisecond pulsar and four slow period pulsar candidates have been identified but are as yet unconfirmed. One of the new slow period pulsars appears to be associated with the supernova remnant S147 located toward the Galactic anticenter.
