Caption attached: Former Pusan Mayor Given Key to New Orleans
"Seoul, April 25, 1970 (6th U.S. Army)--Former Pusan Mayor Kim, Duk-yup (left), newly appointed governor of North Kyongsang Province, recently was presented a key to the City of New Orleans by Lieutenant General John A. Heintges, deputy commanding general, 8th U.S. Army, on behalf of New Orleans Mayor Victor H. Schiro. The key, along with a certificate of honorary New Orleans citizenship, was presented in recognition of close ties between the two port cities. New Orleans is the port of embarkation for large tonnages of supplies destined for U.S. Forces Korea and Pusan is the port of debarkation of these supplies.
