Description
This is a photograph of "Father Edmund Toomey wading a stream followed by two other people between Pingnam [now Pingnan] and Topong [now Dubang]. They have rolled up their trousers and carry unbrellas."
Born in Massachusetts, Fr. Toomey came to Maryknoll in 1921 and was ordained to the priesthood on January 26, 1930. His first assignment was to Wuchow, China in 1930. In 1936 he moved to Kweilin. In 1940 his health brought him back to the United States. He returned to China briefly but eventually served the people of Hawaii.
