They are inspecting a mummy which is believed to date from the 7th century B.C. Portions of the mummy's wrappings have been cut away so that visitors to this popular exhibit may see the method used by the ancients in wrapping the mummies. The specimen is loaned by the Oriental Institute at the University of Chicago."

Above photograph shows Miss P. McLaughlin, Cincinnati artist, and L. Stienes, of Fairmont, Nebraska, viewing the primitive subjects."
