The photo is among the holdings of the U.S. Military Academy Archives, National Archives Record Group 404 and is part of the Stockbridge Collection (#497) which is currently online at the USMA Library's Website.

The photo was taken during the class of 1906 graduation. It appears that the government photo has been altered. I have provided a link to the original image below.

You may also be interested to know that a few more images of the class of 1906 graduation are online and can be viewed on the USMA Library's website.
