An African American man, Benjamin Hazard, appointed to the position of Curator of Special Exhibits and Education of the Oakland Museum, is posed near the steps of what is likely his home. He is wearing a suit, and he sports a high- crowned, wide brimmed hat. An automobile is parked in the driveway of single storey of a house two doors down. An accompanying news release dated August, 1970 and signed by John E. Peetz, was stapled to the photo but removed and placed in the same sleeve as the photo. The photo number is 48978-1
