Another  missionary of sorts, this one with a medical wife, was the Rev. Hugh MacDermott who arrived in 1904 not far from where Dr. “Fitz” was working, though the one seems to have written little about the other. Ella Manuel’s story of the man once described as “to Newfoundland what Grenfell has been to Labrador” is based on his 1938 memoir “MacDermott of Fortune Bay Told by Himself”
