Photograph caption dated December 20, 1962 reads, "Clowns entertain children wherever they can bring a 'little bit of joy and happiness.' They are a group of professional businessmen who make up the clown unit of the Woodland Hills Shrine Club, U. D., who perform for children at Shrine Crippled Children's Hospital, Children's Orthopaedic Hospital and County General Hospital, all in Los Angeles. They bring balloons, gags and lots of laughs to the bedsides of children. Above clown members, left to right, Joe Himot, Art Heley, Marshall McKeand, Bert Finney, and Bob Clark, director, clown around with Raymond Haley, 8, of San Fernando, at Elks Children's Christmas party, where they were invited to perform as an extra-curricular activity of the group."; See images #00121554 through #00121555 for all photos in this series.
