John Clinch
Birth: Jan. 9, 1749
Death: Nov. 22, 1819

Doctor, Missionary. Born in England, he trained with Edward Jenner, who developed the smallpox vaccine. In 1775, he went to Newfoundland where he settled permanently in 1783. While in Newfoundland, a smallpox outbreak formed in the city of Trinity and, remembering his work with Jenner, he had some vaccine sent from England. By 1800, he had introduced the Jenner Vaccine to British North America. He was also a well-known authority on the Beothuk Natives. The Beothuks lived on the island before the Europeans discovered it and named it Newfoundland. (bio by: K)
