About the Front Cover

The cover of the September issue of The Kiwanis Magazine honors United States Constitution Week which occurs September 13 to 19. The design in the oval was suggested to artist Lee by a restored painting by an obscure artist, which painting is in the galleries of the Chicago Historical Society. George Washington is presiding at a meeting of Constitution framers, Benjamin Franklin being at the lower right and James Madison at the lower left. Alexander Hamilton is speaking.
