Jenny Hughes / Gertrude Howe 珍妮·昊格珠（胡遵理）/ 格特鲁德·昊（昊格珠）
There seems to be some confusion on Jenny Hughes name with other modern
references giving her name as Gertrude Howe. Since all my old materials refer to her
as Jenny Hughes, this is the name I used in my writing. Please note you will see both
names on web-pages and need to remember they are one and the same person.
It was Jenny Hughes and Mrs. Hoag that were to be the greatest influence in both Shi Mei Yu and
Ida Kahn's life. With the future Stone's desiring their daughter to become a doctor and Ida's
fore-told fate from birth a strike against her, these two mission women showed with no time to
ponder, what being a compassionate person is all about. Not realizing their actions would bring
about such radical changes within the thousands of years of Chinese tradition guiding the destiny
of many females who were robbed of living a life of their own choosing, what some still must
endure today in parts of the world.
bddconline biography of Jenny Hughes / Gertrude Howe
I don't presently have much historical material I've obtained about her life, I know her life's
choices greatly inspired the decisions and path chosen by the great female Chinese doctors Stone
and Kahn. I know from reading the limited Maddock letters archived convey a fear for their
daughters life in deciding to go half way around the world by her lonesome, wondering when the
next time they will see her, if ever. My admiration for these young adults to commit their life for
a cause humbles me a lot. I don't think I would have the sense of adventure to pursue life to
such an extreme at that time.
