In 1900 Iowa Congressman Jonathan Prentiss Dolliver (left) introduced the
first bill to protect antiquities on federal land, just a few months before
he was appointed to a vacancy in the Senate. He and Iowa’s powerful senior
Senator, William Boyd Allison (right), are shown preparing to go to the State
Capitol in Des Moines where they were reelected to the Senate by the Iowa legislature.
