Public meetings were held to alert people of the dangers of tuberculosis in a campaign begun by Nurse Maude (1862-1935). Dr Cecil Danforth Greenwood (b. 1860 or 1861), a son-in-law of Professor Bickerton (1842-1929) and also a member of the New Brighton Borough Council, had opened the Avon Pine Sanitorium in 1904 for fee-paying tubercular patients who were treated by the open-air method. This camp was on Professor Bickerton's land at Wainoni Park. Later, when Nurse Maude's camp was moved nearby, Dr Greenwood became the doctor for her camp. Frederick Arthur Hornibrook (1877-1965) was a physical-educationalist and, from 1920, husband of sexual hygiene campaigner, Ettie Rout (1877-1936). He visited the camp 2-3 times a week to take the men for physical education
