Virgil Hart was the Superintendent for the New York Methodist Missions in China and later the Canadian Methodist Missions in Sichuan Province. He built Western hospitals and girls’ schools along the Yangtze and Min Rivers from 1866-1901. He overcame many obstacles the officials from the Imperial Qing Dynasty and local populations. Inspired by his faith, Dr. Hart desired to bring medical care and education to the Chinese masses in cities where the native Chinese gentry denied their own people basic accommodations.

His final year in China saw many of his efforts destroyed, due to superstitions the vast majority of Chinese people still hold.

Dr. Edgerton H. Hart was born in China to missionary parents, was educated in America and returned to China to head one of the hospitals his father, Virgil Hart built in Wuhu, on the Yangtze River.  His medical skills were highly regarded by both the Chinese and foreigners. 

From Caroline Harts’ personal journal:
“At last my preparation of years was rewarded, for I carried in my pocket a half-read letter that appointed me to China. That early afternoon in the spring of 1904 found me hurrying toward the operating rooms of Chicago’s huge Cook County Hospital, at that time said to be the largest charity hospital in the world.

"A brief luncheon period and a rush day in surgery had allowed only a glance at the letter, but it was my uppermost thought as I scrubbed up, put on cap, mask and gown and entered the room where an operation was already under way. I moved silently to my station and after a few moments, the chief surgeon, alert always to the personnel and efficiency of his assistants, looked up. He said teasingly, “So the little red-headed missionary is here to help, looking for the entire world as if she had seen a vision. Just when and where are you going?”

This book follows the lives of two remarkable Chinese physicians, Mary Stone and Ida Kahn, who where the first female Chinese doctors educated in Western medicine. Both women changed China forever. This story shares their lifelong contributions to the China of their day, and how patient by patient they ended ancient traditions by producing positive results.  Binding feet fell from fashion, surgery became the best solution for tumors, and female medical education saved many lives.

Both physicians were born in Kiukiang, now called Jiujiang, one of many pearls along the sometimes over-flowing Yangtze River. Both were “entrusted” to missionaries. Both children had something about them their parents saw as mystical. We all became blessed because they took a course of unprecedented action, covering more than half the globe, and spoke to a simple way of facing impossible odds to make a difference.
