Description
Photograph was edited for publication purposes
Photograph caption dated April 7, 1960 reads "Ralph H. Head, right, president of Pierce Brothers Mortuaries, points out details of replica of Great Chalice of Antioch, believed by many to be chalice which Christ used at Last Supper when He instituted Sacrament of Holy Communion. In original, ornately carved goblet-shaped chalice contained simple inner cup believed to be 'Holy Grail' for which Christian crusaders searched. Chalice replica was displayed at dinner meeting of Valley Chapter of Executives' Secretaries, Inc., held at Queen's Arms, Encino. With Head are Maria Schmidt, center, president of secretaries' groups, and Bettie Raymond, Pierce Brothers secretary."
