David Lister (British)

Article by Minna

"Dr. David Lister, an Englishman, who had grown up in a family of physicians. Father, grandfather, uncles, were all doctors, and one of his great uncles, Sir Joseph Lister, called the Father of Modern Surgery, had developed the theory of antisepsis. David, a graduate of Cambridge, had received his medical training in a large hospital in London, then had come to India to continue his medical work, studying for specialisation in Asiatic diseases and obstetrics. The scope and excellency of the great medical centre at Vellore had brought him there for both stucy and practice. Before coming to India he had visited countries in
Africa and throughout Asia looking for the place where God wanted him to serve. . . . . .In January 1969 he came back to become the only physician and surgeon among the thousands of people on the six ranges, most of whom had never seen a doctor.. . . . .Dr. Lister settled at Munglepetti on the Kalryans.. . . . .The next day in Denmark Dr. David Lister was being married to Dr. Jonna Boonevie, whom he had met in Vedathorasalur when she came to India under a medical student programme."
