Description Caption: "As "an example to youth" and testament to his oft-repeated belief that Israel is a pioneering country whose people must never forget their nearness to the soil, Israel's first Prime Minister, David Ben Gurion, recently retired to live and work as a pioneer in the Negev, the great southern desert of Israel. He and Mrs. Ben Gurion (a former Brooklyn, New York nurse) are shown in the doorway of their one-story pre-fab hut in Sde Boker, a tiny village south of Biblical Beersheva." 1954
