Note: Have YOU seen the original color transparency for this photo? The very good quality original Kodachrome transparency (bearing photo number 80-G-K-384) apparently "strayed" from National Archives' files sometime between 1972 and 1982. Anybody who could help recover it would perform a fine service for the historical community.
