MOTHER TERESA

Mother Teresa, head of the Missionaries of Charity order, cradles an armless baby girl at her order's orphanage in Calcutta, India in 1978. A champion among the poor in India, Mother Teresa received the Nobel Peace Prize Oct. 17, 1979. An Albanian, she went to India in 1928 to teach at a convent school, taking her final vows as a Roman Catholic nun in 1937, and opened her House for the Dying in 1952. Mother Teresa's devotion to the destitute children of Calcutta, lepers and other unfortunates of theworld set a new standard of compassion for humanity. She died Sept. 5, 1997, at the age of 87.
