Dr. Groman is the first individual on the left with no shirt. He was working with men that he hired to construct the museum at the time the photographer arrived to take about a dozen photographs. To the surprise of many visitors, he was seen frequently in baggy beige work pants and was often mistaken as one of the hired workmen.
