Description
The entering class at the Boys' Boarding School at Ing Hok. The class consisted of four young Chinese boys: Ma, Jong, U Hen Hung, and John Lau. The boys are seated on a staircase outdoors. They are all dressed and groomed in proper Chinese fashion.
The Smiths were a family of Congregational missionaries in China, 1901-1950, primarily in Ing Tai and Foochow [Fuzhou]. Edward Huntington Smith devoted nearly 50 years of his life to running an orphanage, raising funds, and promoting Christian education in Ing Tai, Fukien [Fujian], China. His wife, Grace W. Thomas Smith served as a Kindergarten teacher in the United States and China.
