This is a photograph of "part of the Mission garden, Frs. Taggart and McDermott, the head catechist and two Catholic students of the Middle School whose education is being paid for by the mission with the hope that they may later continue their studies along a medical line and so supply a crying mission need."; Born in New York, Fr. Taggart came to Maryknoll in 1914 and was ordained to the priesthood on May 21, 1921. He sailed for the Orient that same autumn. His first mission was Yeungkong under the guidance of Fr. Francis Ford. Later, he became pastor of the town of Tungchen and remained there until 1927. Returning home to the United States in 1927, he raised funds for his missions and returned in 1929 to Yeungkong and renovated the mission compound. He opened a home for blind girls and older women. In 1931 Fr. Taggart became ill and died in Yeungkong. He was buried in a hillside cemetery at Yeungkong. -- Rev. McDermott was born in Worcester, MA. He entered Maryknoll in 1920 and was ordained in 1927. He was assigned to Kongmoon, South China that year, where he remained until 1937, whereupon he returned to the U.S.
