Fund-raising Committee for the Thomas Jefferson Memorial Foundation

As part of a 1924 fund-raising campaign for the newly created Thomas Jefferson Memorial Foundation (later the Thomas Jefferson Foundation), committee members pose with American flags and placards depicting Jefferson and Monticello. The foundation, which purchased the Albemarle County estate in 1923, is dedicated to preserving and maintaining the house as a memorial to Jefferson.
