Do you remember Maryland’s U.S. Congressman Rogers Morton (B. 1914 D. 1979)? Rogers Morton was the U.S. Secretary of the Interior and Secretary of Commerce under Presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford and lived in Talbot County at Prequille on the Wye River! Congressman Morton and his wife Ann appear to be receiving a gift of a beautiful sailboat painting. Can you identify the presenting gentleman to the right?
