    A vintage and extraoridinary rare 1935-36 fund raising calendar sold for the benefit of Dr. Sir Wilfred Grenfell's Labrador mission work. The front includes a mounted color print of Dr. Grenfell with his beloved sled dogs followed by the caption "The Good Companions". The 6 1/4" x 8" print, with raised ridges simulating brush strokes, is mounted on a 7 1/2" x 10" forest green card stock. The calendar is filled with reproductions of candid photographs from the island's coastline, mission work and quotes taken from his many writings. Dr. Grenfell (1865-1940), a British missionary, was a surgeon on a hospital ship that served the North Sea fisheries and was a member of the Mission to Deep Sea Fishermen. In 1892, he went to Labrador, founding hospitals, orphanages and other social services as well as fitting hospital ships for the fishing grounds. Sir Wilfred Grenfell College (recently renamed Grenfell Campus, Memorial University) is named in his honour. In very good, unused condition with both the original hanging ribbon and standing board to the rear. There is a small dent near the lower left bottom edge of both covers. Additionally, the bound calendar sheets is missing one brass rivet and has detached from the rear cover. This calendar is extremely rare and a must have for the true Grenfell collector.
