A black and white photograph of the male student body posing with Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune in front of Cookman Hall in 1924. The exterior, windows, and columns of the building can be seen. The students are wearing three-piece suits. The back rows are standing, the middle row is sitting in chairs, and the front row is sitting on the step with their arms wrapped around their knees. Mary McLeod is sitting in the second row, eighth person from the left (the middle person in the photograph). Looking at the row directly behind her, in between the two columns, third from the left is Mary McLeod Bethune's foster son, Edward Rodriguez. He is essentially standing behind her right shoulder. Underneath the photo has been written, "Male student body in front of dormitory. Note Mrs. Bethune in center. Just a great (big) mother." The photographer of the image is unknown.
