Famous Mason Of The Day Henri Dunant Jean Henri Dunant was born on May 8th, 1828 in Geneva, Switzerland. While growing, Dunant's parents stressed the importance of social work. At a young age, Dunant was involved in charity work, founding a service group that would help the poor and visit prisons, as well as founding a YMCA in his hometown. He began traveling abroad while working for several service organizations. On the evening of June 24th in 1859, Dunant arrived Solferino at the time when the Battle of Solferino was begining. After witnessing the battle and seeing tens of thousands there dying and wounded and no help being offered, Dunant, being deeply moved decided to take matters into his own hands. He quickly organized a neutral relief effort among the remaining citizens, purchased necessary supplies, and established temporary hospitals. After returning to Geneva, he began promoting his ideas, and after gaining support, founded the International Committee of the Red Cross in 1863 and initiated talks with the Swiss Parliament which lead to the signing of the First Geneva Convention. In 1901, Dunant was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his work. Brother Jean Henri Dunant was a member of St. David's Lodge No. 36. He was called from Labor on October 30, 1910 and was laid to rest at the Sihlfeld Cemetery in Zurich.
