This is a panoramic photo showing a large group of soldiers and other men at the dedication of the Knights of Columbus Main Hall at Camp Funston, Ks. There is at least one robed Catholic priest near the center of the image. There are some structures in the background and a building being constructed at the right of the image. Camp Funston was established at Fort Riley, Kansas, after the outbreak of World War I and work began on the camp in the summer of 1917. The camp was named after Brigadier General Frederick Funston who grew up in Iola, Kansas, and who became well known for his role in the Philippines during the Spanish American War.
