Overview

Snapshots of Grenfell is a two-part book. Part I is a tribute to the life and work of Wilfred Grenfell by a close friend and co-worker, J. T. Richards. Richards first met Grenfell in 1892, on the Labrador Coast, and was captivated by his energy, spirituality and desire to serve the poor. Grenfell was a medical doctor and missionary of the Mission to Deep Sea Fishers, and quickly established a relationship with the people and built the Grenfell Mission that continues to exist today, The International Grenfell Association. Richards’ tribute was written a few months after Grenfell’s death on October 9, 1940. Part II is a long poem by Richards, written just after hearing from Grenfell the story of his narrow escape in 1908, when he was trapped overnight on an ice pan in Northern Newfoundland. Grenfell’s Monologue on the Ice Pan is written in free verse, in which the author imagines Grenfell musing about the meaning of life and courageously overcoming the odds of survival. The book was first published in 1989 with an introduction by Irving Letto, who having found a handwritten copy of the poem, has incorporated it, with notes, into this new edition.

Meet the Author

John Thomas Richards (1875-1958) was a priest in charge of the Anglican Mission of Flower’s Cove in Northern Newfoundland and Coastal Labrador from 1904-45. He was a friend and supporter of Dr. Wilfred Grenfell. Because of his “outstanding work in promoting the social welfare of the people” he was made an Ordinary Officer of the British Empire by King George VI in 1949.

Irving Letto grew up at L’Anse au Clair, on the Labrador coast, and attended the Canon J. T. Richards Memorial School, Flower’s Cove, in 1960-61. After sixteen years teaching, he was ordained as an Anglican priest and worked in several parishes in Atlantic Canada. He has been researching the life and work of J. T. Richards since 1971 and is writing a biography of Richards. He is retired and lives in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
