[Photograph of Man Giving a Speech Outside at Fort Davis National Historic Site]

Description: Photograph of a middle-aged man with short, dark hair, wearing a brown suit jacket and tie, standing in front of a brown, wooden podium. Behind her is a large group of people sitting in rows on either side of the podium. In front of the podium and the rest of the people on the platform, there are large strips of red, white, and blue fabric draped on a frame to imitate an American flag and separate the platform from the dirt lot in front of it. There is an American flag hanging from a flagpole on the far left end of the stage, behind the sitting people. In the background, there are three small, red brick, one-story houses sit in a row behind the platform and a tall, rocky range in the distant background. There are National Park Service emblems over the red, white and blue bunting. This is likely taken at the event when Fort Davis National Historic Site was authorized as a unit of the National Park System in 1961.

[Photograph of Historical Marker Ceremony]

Description: Photograph of a group of four men in dark suits and a woman in a pink skirt, suit jacket, and white gloves, standing around a Texan Historical Marker in front of a desert area with rocky bluffs in the background. Two of the men are standing to the left of the marker, while the rest of the people are standing to the right, turned slightly to the left. The marker reads, "Barry Scobee Mountain," and the man standing closest to the marker on the left is holding a grey hat in his left hand. A fence with thin metal wires separates the group from the scrub brush and rocky dirt area beyond.
