Former Wisconsin congressman and defense secretary Melvin Laird seated at the replica of his former offices built by the Marshfield Clinic as part of the Laird Center for Medical Research. Among the memorabilia of Laird's career housed at the Center is the desk of former Speaker Joseph E. Cannon that Laird used from 1958 until he retired from the "Reader's Digest." With Laird are Governor and Mrs. James Doyle and Congressman David R. Obey. The two people standing to Obey's right are Mark Bradley, a member of the UW Board of Regents, and State Supreme Court Justice, Ann Walsh Bradley.
