Dec. 15, 1947: St. Bernard Plays Santa to Dogs at Shelter

L.A. Times, 1947

Note: This is an encore post from 2005 and originally appeared on the 1947project.

Curiously, The Times apparently never published another story about Chad A. Schultz, despite his considerable generosity ($1,000 = $9,464.19 USD 2005).

However, the South L.A. animal shelter is still in operation at 3612 11th Ave.

Bonus factoid: Mideast death toll since U.N. voted to partition the Holy Land reaches 360.

Quote of the day: “Among juvenile delinquents, the No. 1 physical defect is defective hearing.”
Willard Hargrave, founder of the Auricular Foundation.
