Abstract:

The papers consist of correspondence, diaries, ships' logs, notebooks, writings, speeches, and legal and financial papers documenting Wilfred T. Grenfell's medical missionary work in Labrador, particularly for the years 1930-1940. Also included are scattered papers of the Royal National Mission to Deep Sea Fishermen and the Grenfell Associations, containing correspondence, minutes, financial records and reports (1893-1949). The small amount of papers of Ann MacClanahan Grenfell, his wife, consist largely of correspondence related to the Grenfell Association and two travel diaries (1924-1926). Grenfell's correspondence, notebooks and diaries are a valuable source for Labrador and Newfoundland history, as well as economic and social conditions between 1892, when he committed himself to missionary work in Labrador, and his death in 1940. There are also family papers relating to both the Grenfell and MacClanahan families. Providing an overall view of Grenfell's life are twenty-one scrapbooks (1893-1939) and a collection of nearly 10,500 photographs of life in Newfoundland and Labrador (1890-1940), of various missions and views of the Grenfell's travels to other parts of the world (1891-1932).
