Description
Photograph was edited for publication purposes
Photograph article dated December 5, 1964 partially reads, "A dog, as you have heard, is man's best friend. But for some men - and women - a dog is more. A dog can mean freedom and a chance to live a full life again. For these dogs are guide dogs for the blind. International Guiding Eyes, Inc., in North Hollywood, is an organization which trains guide dogs and then donates them, free of charge, to blind persons." Pictured is Theresa Vinsant, 26, of Los Angeles, and her guide dog, Freya.
