By Alice Shepard Riggs with foreword by Constance Shepard Jolly

Dr. Fred D. Shepard was a popular American medical missionary who spent most of his adult life working in the Ottoman Empire at Aintab, central Turkey. He turned his mission station into a major relief center where he treated local Armenians, Kurds, and Turks. In 1915 he contracted typhus working amongst victims of the Armenian Genocide and died in December that year.
