Billie Holiday and her beloved Boxer dog "Mister" 1949

Photo/Herman Leonard

1949: Billie Holiday cooks a steak for her dog Mister in her apartment in the Harlem neighborhood of New York.
Leonard says she came to the door wearing a simple house dress and an apron and "First I thought, this is the maid."
But it was Holiday, one of the greatest voices of modern time, whom Leonard would continue to photograph throughout her life.
