Biographical history

Hutton, Samuel King (1877-1961) was born in Kilkeel, Ireland, a son of Rev. Robert Hutton. He was educated at Fulneck, Manchester and Victoria University, Manchester. Hutton was a doctor with the Moravian Missions and was sent to Okak among the Inuit of Labrador in eastern Canada from England following the completed construction of a hospital there by the Moravian Mission in 1903. He lived and practised medicine in Okak from 1903-1908 and again from 1911-1914. Hutton later returned to England and practised in Poole and Orpington before retiring in 1951. He wrote several books and pamphlets based on his experiences in Labrador. His memoirs of this time period were published in England in his books "Among the Labrador Eskimos" and "By Eskimo Dog-sled and Kayak".
