Photograph caption dated January 1, 1963 reads "Di Giovanni and Ventress discuss service program." The article partially reads "The word unico in Italian means unique, and Unico National is, in fact, unique among service organizations. Patterned after service clubs such as Lions, Rotary and Kiwanis, its difference lies in the fact that membership is composed of professional and business Americans of Italian origin. Unico first came into being because of the adverse publicity which Italians were getting in the 20s and 30s."
