Summary

Dr. William H. Holmes, first curator of the National Gallery of Art (NGA), now the Smithsonian American Art Museum (SAAM), (standing, right) with William H. Jackson (standing, left), Story B. Ladd (seated, left) and George B. Chittenden (seated, right). This photograph was taken in an art gallery in the United States National Museum, now known as the National Museum of Natural History. A landscape painting by artist Thomas Moran, "The Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone," (1893-1901) is visible in the background. Posing in front of this painting was appropriate because the four men were all members of the United States Geological and Geographical Survey of the Territories, 1871-1877, also known as the Hayden Survey, which took them through Yellowstone.
