Description
Photograph caption dated December 26, 1964 reads "Getting the swing. After the initial stage of getting the patients to talk, by playing bingo with them, on the right, Mrs. Grace Morgan, ward nurse for six years, and Lynda Schutz, 15, show a patient how to play. The group initiates dancing and singing. After one of the girls started playing the piano, it was a matter of minutes before most of the women were taking turns, too. In the picture, at left (not pictured), a patient demonstrates her skill while another waits in the foreground for her turn." The teens from the San Fernando Valley B'nai B'rith Youth Organization volunteer to interact with patients several times a year.; See images #00144456 through #00144459 for all photos in this series.
