Wilfred Grenfell, ca. 1910
When British physician Wilfred Grenfell visited Labrador in 1892, he was shocked by the lack of medical attention residents of that area received. He began a fundraising campaign later that year which allowed him to establish a hospital at Battle Harbour in 1893 and another at Indian Harbour in 1894. As a result of Grenfell's work, many more hospitals and nursing stations opened in Labrador and northern Newfoundland.
