Halleck display

Last Saturday when I stopped by the Historical Society Museum to see if they had their post-card display up yet, I noticed a display of Charles Halleck items on a table.
 It was a collection of items that were being prepared for a display in the Library. You can see the newspaper with the story of the Eisenhower visit for the laying of the cornerstone of Halleck Center. I thought the most interesting item was the cover of Time Magazine from June 8, 1959.
The post-card display was being assembled and the map exhibit was being put away.

The Historical Society has been having an identify-the-picture series on Facebook. The one they posted today was the only one that I instantly recognized.
