From Sled To Satellite My Years With The Grenfell Mission Author: Gordon W Thomas, M.D. From Sled to Satellite charts the progress of the Mission during Dr. Thomas 33 years of service. It is the story of:
- Medical rescue by dogsled, ship, and jet.
- Emergency operations – sometimes with homemade technology; later, in the sophisticated hospital built in memory of mission worker Dr. Charles S. Curtis.
- The evolution of the International Grenfell Association from private charity to government service, from the days of Joey Smallwood to the present.
