Chair of the Emma Eccles Jones Foundation Clark P. Giles (far left) gives a congratulatory handshake to Spencer Eccles upon announcement of a 5 million dollar donation to be an incentive to raise the rest of the money needed for the museum, which has been largely possible due to the Eccles foundations. Sarah Giles, wife of Clark, sits in the middle.
