This is an original press photo. In 1940 a resolution was passed by the United States Junior Chamber approving a program to further mutual interests among countries in Central and South America.

In 1943, J. Allyn Taylor of Canada and Vance Graham of the United States took a tour to seven Latin American countries. Travel presented more than a few problems in this war time atmosphere. Much of the material explaining the Junior Chamber movement was translated into Spanish by a Mexican school teacher of El Paso, Texas.

In spite of travel complications and border-crossing problems, the trip was most successful. The Junior Chamber representatives found young business men in Central America quite receptive to the formation of Junior Chamber in their countries.
Photo measures 5.25 x 7.75inches. Photo is dated 05-05-1943.
