History of The Seeing Eye

Dorothy Harrison Eustis, an American dog trainer living in Switzerland, was experimenting with German Shepherds' working ability. While there, she visited a school that was training German Shepherds to lead blinded World War I veterans. Fascinated by what she had seen, she wrote an article entitled "The Seeing Eye" about the school for The Saturday Evening Post, which appeared in the November 5, 1927 edition. Shortly thereafter she was contacted by a blind Tennessean man named Morris Frank, who enlisted her to train a dog for his usage. This effort eventually evolved into the Seeing Eye organization in Switzerland and America.
