During a ceremony at the Biltmore Hotel, French philanthropist Lucien Brunswig (far left) stands beside French Consul Henri Didot as he hands the diploma of the Order of L'Instruction Publique to USC President Dr. Rufus B. von Kleinsmid, for his work in promoting international education and good will. Kleinsmid was also made an office of the order and awarded a medal. On his right is retired French Capt. Charles Vical, who started a French language school in Los Angeles.
