At the time, Taylor was representing the Women’s Board of the Methodist Episcopal Church, and serving perhaps as principal of the school, which had been started in 1879. Callahan began his work as a teacher in Japan shortly after graduating from Emory, in 1890. The two would spend over forty-five years in Japan as missionaries.
