Cosgrove, general vice president; George H. Lakey, general vice president; and Frank Duffy, general secretary; and Thomas Neale, general treasurer. The names of the other men in the group are not known.This image is a preservation copy made from an unstable original nitrate negative. The image is part of Series III
