The young executives, front row, left to right, are: Louis Miniscalco, 15, as secretary; Chester Andrezak, 17, chief of the events division; Floyd Jacobson, 15, director of exhibits; Herman Loper, 14, director of foreign and federal participation; Bernard Galivan, 15, director of promotion and publicity; and Carl Marziana, 17, assistant to the general manager. Back row, left to right, Lawrence Hatton, 17, director of concessions; Charles Felice, 15, chief of the protocol; Anthony Graziano, 17, legal counsel; LeGrand Malany, 16, assistant to the general manager, and John Maheras, 14, general manager. Don Schmidt, 16, was so busy carrying on as president of the Exposition, and Joseph Wirt, 16, chief of public protection, was so busy making arrangements to meet Ed Wynn, that neither had time to pose for the picture."
