Father James J. Doyle
1909 - 2001

Eventually to become, "Monsignor James J. Doyle"
Chaplain aboard the U.S.S. Hancock


My photo station on the U.S.S. Hancock was where the running water was located, so it also became an emergency hospital. Father Doyle spent a great deal of time there, providing support for the wounded men --- and sometimes delivering them their last rights. He had the qualities I was seeking in my work. I wanted to show, on film, the extraordinary potential of the human mind. Many times, Father Doyle sacrificed his own safety to protect someone else. I once told him that he should be more careful, but he said, "If my Father wants me elsewhere, there's no point in trying to delay it."
