Name of creator
Andrew S. Grant was born at La Guerre, Quebec, in 1860. He graduated from McGill University as a medical doctor and theological licentiate. Ordained in 1889, he went as a Presbyterian missionary to the Klondike in 1898. He cared for many sick and injured people along the trail to Dawson. Grant built St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church and founded the Good Samaritan Hospital. He served as minister in Dawson, 1898-1907. Grant died in Toronto in 1935.
