Wilson are shown in the exhibit of the Oriental Institute in the Hall of Social Science on Northerly Island at A Century of Progress. 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."
