North Dakota Congressman William Lemke sits at a desk with several other unidentified men, examining a document. Lemke served several terms in the U.S. House of Representatives: the first from 1933 to 1941 and the second from 1943 until his death in 1950. He was an important figure in the rise of the Nonpartisan League in North Dakota and was the Union Party Candidate for President in 1936.
A stamp on the back of the photograph indicates it was taken by the Powell Studio in Kankakee, Illinois.
