20 editions published between 1996 and 2009 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A religious, well-educated Victorian, Eliot Curwen takes us into the heart of the colonial society he encountered. His journal provides insights into its pervasive sectarianism, the tawdry political world of St John's, the rudimentary conditions aboard the fishing schooners, and the poverty of the Labrador "livyers," the permanent white settlers who had intermarried with the Inuit. He provides fresh details about the lives of the Moravian Brethren, the first missionaries to the Native population, and comments on the wildlife, the natural environment, and the general disposition of the countryside. Curwen's candid remarks about Grenfell reveal details about the young missionary and social reformer not found elsewhere. The introduction and annotations by Ronald Rompkey, Grenfell's biographer, establish the historical, political, and social contexts of the journal. Rompkey has included official letters and reports from Grenfell and other members of the expedition to supplement Curwen's rather private account, as well as numerous photographs taken by both Curwen and Grenfell to publicize their work."--Jacket
Jessie Luther at the Grenfell Mission by Jessie Luther( Book )

14 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Strongly influenced by the arts and crafts movement, the New England artist Jessie Luther was recruited by Wilfred Grenfell to teach weaving to the women at St. Anthony, whose hooked mats went on to become famous for their strong designs and meticulous craftsmanship. An annotated edition of a travel journal that Luther wrote from 1906 to 1910, Jessie Luther at the Grenfell Mission describes the local customs of St. Anthony and also provides an unusually intimate account of Wilfried Grenfell - his idiosyncrasies, his attempts to meet the needs of the community, his rescue from a floating ice pan, his marriage - and brings to life the Newfoundlanders with whom he worked."--Jacket

The Labrador memoir of Dr. Harry Paddon, 1912-1938 by Harry Paddon( Book )

"Dr. Harry Paddon's memoir is an extensive account of life in Labrador prior to Confederation. As the Grenfell Mission's principal physician for over twenty-five years, Dr. Paddon travelled extensively throughout Labrador by both dog team and boat. Through his journals he fashions a portrait of Labrador society in accord with the traditional rhythms of trapping and fishing, as it was before the onset of industrial development. He also chronicles the demands of northern medicine in response to pervasive threats such as tuberculosis and deficiency diseases, including a moving description of the Spanish Flu epidemic of 1918-19"--Jacket
