William Carpenter Bompas

1834-1906. Pioneer Anglican bishop in the Canadian North. Educated privately in London, he was ordained deacon in 1859, and in 1865 volunteered for service in the missionary circuit of the Yukon. As an itinerant clergyman he quickly earned the admiration and respect of the Indian and Eskimo and in 1874 became the first bishop of Athabasca. In 1884 he was translated to the see of Mackenzie River, and in 1891 to that of Selkirk (now Yukon). In 1905 he resigned his bishopric, but continued to live in the Yukon until his death. A doughty Evangelical, he translated the NT into a multitude of Indian dialects and founded several schools and hostels for native children. His many travels and his endurance of cold and famine earned him the title “Apostle of the North” (the name of the biography by H.A. Cody, 1908), and left a permanent mark on missionary work in that area.
