Joan Rivers, who died earlier this month, was a pioneering comedian and actress known for her acerbic wit and self-deprecating humor. But she was also a great philanthropist who supported a variety of causes including her early involvement in AIDS/HIV activism, animal welfare efforts, and suicide prevention. Throughout her career she also visited children’s hospitals around the nation, including St. Louis Children’s Hospital. These photos from her visit in the early 1980’s show that despite her celebrity (and perhaps her on-camera persona) she was engaging, caring, and good-humored with the children and families she met at the hospital.
