2020 marks the 70th Jubilee of the Maryknoll Class of 1950. These members of Maryknoll have spent most of their lives in mission, working as mechanics, teachers, administrators, and more. While we cannot mark the occasion with these Maryknollers in person due to the current health crisis, the Maryknoll Mission Archives will celebrate those who would have been honored at Jubilee. Today we highlight the remaining two members of the Class of 1950, Brother Luke R. Baldwin and Brother Frank J. Norris. Please click on the photos to enlarge.
