S-0526-0183-0012-00001 · Item · 1955-01-01 - 1956-12-31
Part of United Nations Korean Reconstruction Agency (UNKRA) (1950-1958)

200 pigs flown to Korea in first animal airlift. Two hundred pigs made a flight half-way around the world to do their part in the reconstruction of Korea. The UNKRA imported this breeding stock to replenish the drastically reduced Korean supply. The Heifer Project Committee, an interdenominational voluntary society, cooperates with the U.N. Agency in this project. This picture, taken upon arrival of the plane in Korea, shows Dr. Reisinger, of UNKRA (at right), and Mr. Lee (left), Korean Quarantine Representative, helping unload the crated pigs from the truck in which they were taken to the Quarantine Station. Pusan, Korea, June 1952.
