A black and white image of the funeral procession preparations on the campus of Bethune-Cookman College, in honor of Mary McLeod Bethune. In the foreground of the image can be seen a dirt road, part of a car, a tree, and a nech. There is a sidewalk connecting to the road, on either side of which stand men dressed in suits and hats. To the right of the image is the pergola which stands at the entrance of White Hall (not visible), where the chapel is. Standing along the sidewalk running parallel to White Hall are the female students of Bethune-Cookman, who are all dressed in white and are lined up. In the background of the image can be seen the building that used to be McLeod Hospital (two-story white building with a front porch). Numerous trees and utility poles can be seen in the photograph. On the back of the image is written, "1955 funeral event." The photographer of the image is unknown.
