Seated on the porch of the Roosevelt ancestral home at Hyde Park, New York during ceremonies marking the first anniversary of the death of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, President Harry S. Truman reached down impulsively to pat Fala, his predecessor's favorite pet. General Harry Vaughan, military aide, is in background. Donor: New York Herald Tribune.
