Wystan, Thanks for your efforts with the numerous photographs which document the National Memorial Service of May 11, 1914. We will be able to better link the related images and expand the descriptions, including the addition of a date where one is not yet included. We will add Mr. Tumulty to this description as well. He is identified as Wilson's secretary in this photograph from one of our other collections.
