John Andross and Pup
Family Dog
Family Dog

The year 1930 was brutally tough for everyone, especially farmers. You’d never know it, though, by this picture of John Andross, his wife Abbie and their dog Pup, taken at a family reunion. John, who was born blind, played a mean fiddle and piano, and worked his southern Minnesota farm assisted by Pup, who helped him navigate. The photo comes from John and Abbie’s grandson, 86-year-old Kermit Andross Allen, now of Coralville, Iowa, who has many fond memories of his grandparents, and was sent in by Karla S. Miller, Allen’s stepdaughter.
