Thanks goodness for this blog!
A kind stranger who collects large film negatives located this amongst his thousands, marked, "S. Berger 1949." He googled the name and found this blog!
He shared this wonderful photo of Sam in his studio carving Lady Fatima for St. Brigid's School in San Francisco. The statue still remains, and we're looking forward to seeing it in person!
I purchased the 8 by 10 negative, and am forever grateful to have found this wonderful image. Shows how powerful the internet is!
