1901 Tennessee Club Banquet Gleason TN

James H. Moran III
James H. Moran, of Dresden TN, was a member of the Tennessee Club of the University of Virginia. On this evening he was one of the speakers at the  banquet held at the Hotel Gleason, Gleason Tennessee on Tuesday, March 26th, 1901.  We found a program for the banquet among the papers at Moran Place.  In addition, there was a photograph of a woman inside the program.  She doesn't appear to be one of the Moran women.  Perhaps she was Jim's date for the evening?  What we do know is that the photograph was taken inside of the Moran home in Dresden.

Taken inside Moran Place, Dresden TN.
Unknown woman.
