I can’t tell you who took this picture or the association behind it. It’s covered up by the by-line covering the back of the photo. What I CAN tell you is that it was taken on May 16, 1929, and the back of the photo reads:
COLLEGE PRESIDENT DISMISSED FOR MODERNIST IDEAS
DES MOINES, IOWA – Dr. Henry C. Wayman, President of Des Moines University, a Baptist fundamentalist institution, who together with members of the faculty was dismissed by Dr. T.T. Shields, for harboring modernist ideas, speaking to the students who rioted after hearing of the ousting.
