The Legacy of Sir Wilfred Thomason Grenfell
"The purpose of this world is not to have and hold, but to serve" Wilfred T. Grenfell
Wilfred Thomason Grenfell was a heroic medical missionary, originally from Parkgate, England.
In 1892, Dr. Grenfell was sent to Newfoundland & Labrador to investigate the state of the fishery.
This was the start of his lifelong work to aid the people of an isolated coast - ice blocked and inaccessible for many months of the year.
For his years of service on behalf of these communities, he was knighted by King George V.
