#FabulousFLOTUSFriday and #OTD 9/15/1972- First Lady Pat Nixon visited Seeing Eye, Inc. in Morris Township, New Jersey:

During her visit, she met Morris Frank, who in the 1920s was the first man to learn to use a Seeing Eye dog. She also met the puppies training to be guide dogs and had many questions for the staff. The highlight of her visit was when she donned a blackout eye mask and let Seeing Eye dog Winnie lead her. She was quoted as saying, “This is for real!” during the walk and remarked that she wanted to do everything she could to help the visually-impaired. (Image: WHPO-D0398-31)
