The Armed Services Committee sits at their dais in this 1949 group photograph. The committee’s hearing room, Room 311 in the Cannon Building, retains much of the space’s original grandeur, including the draped canopy behind the chairman’s seat, the tiered crystal chandelier, wall sconces, and carved mahogany dais.
