A black and white image of Mary McLeod Bethune sitting on an ornately carved chair in her home. She has her hands folded in her lap and is wearing a long dress, pearl bracelets and a pearl necklace. A decorated vase sits in an alcove in the wall above her. Standing next to Mary McLeod Bethune on a stand is a trophy, on which the inscription is partially legible. It reads, "Lorie Miller Memorial Trophy." At its base are three figures which are holding round objects above their heads. On the back of the image is written in pencil, "Mrs. Bethune sits for photo - 1951." The photographer of the image is unknown.
