Goichberg as Fischer's 'Gopher'

Following in the footsteps of Name that Player, this is a fairly well known photo of Fischer (at least I've seen it before) that always has the right two-thirds of the image cropped out.

From CHESS LIFE, September 1965

The caption said,

I found the photo while I was researching Goichberg's early career as a tournament organizer.
