Publication Award

Geoff Mynett accepted a Publication Award for Service on the Skeena: Horace Wrinch, Frontier Physician. Service on the Skeena is the previously untold biography of medical doctor, administrator, missionary, farmer and progressive politician Horace Wrinch. Wrinch, who departed England alone at age 14, arrived in Hazelton twenty years later, where he built the first hospital in the northern interior. Having drawn extensively on research from archives, newspapers, family documents and photographs, Mynett’s work captures the reader’s admiration and interest from cover to cover.
