Photograph article dated July 27, 1963 partially reads, "James Perry had one of the happiest moments of his life today. He learned from doctors the man to whom he gave mouth-to-mouth respiration Thursday doesn't have the dreaded disease meningitis as was believed. Perry, 23, a Reseda fireman attached to Engine Company 60, North Hollywood rescue unit, for 17 hours had lived with the fear he had contracted the disease and then had given it unknowingly to his mother, his wife and his three small children." Fireman Perry, left, gets an x-ray in meningitis search. It was a false alarm - the man he helped had a heart attack.
