This is a photograph of "Sisters of the Sacred Heart, a native community trained by Maryknoll Sisters in Fushun, Manchuria. With them is Bishop Lane, Maryknoll Fathers Superior General." Born in Massachusetts, Bishop Lane came to Maryknoll in 1913 and was ordained to the priesthood in 1920. In 1923 he went to Hong Kong to become the procurator of that mission. Two years later he went north and inaugurated the Fushun mission in Manchuria. In 1932 Monsignor Lane was appointed Prefect Apostolic and in 1940 Vicar Apostolic. He was consecrated a Bishop in 1940. After Pearl Harbor, Bishop Lane was interned by the Japanese in Fushun. Within a year of prepatriation, Bishop Lane was elected to be the third Superior General of Maryknoll. His tenure led to the greatest expansion at home and abroad for Maryknoll.
