Frederick Bishop

(1864-1929). One of the pioneer colporteurs who opened Seventh-day Adventist work in Chile. He was born in England, and as a small child was brought to the United States by his mother. He became acquainted with SDA beliefs when someone invited him to attend the SDA church in San Francisco sometime in the 1880s. Soon after joining the church, he began selling books and then attended Healdsburg College. While there, F. L. Mead asked him if he would be willing to go to Chile, and without any knowledge of Spanish, he sailed there in 1894 in company with Thomas Davis. In 1897 he married a Chilean and remained in Chile, retiring from active canvassing in 1921.
