Interior view with James C. Dunn, Ambassador to Italy (1946-1952) standing in a dark suit watching the baptism of his grandson James (Jimmy) Dunn Thayer, son of Charles W. Thayer and Cynthia Dunn Thayer. His granddaughter Diana Cochrane, daughter of Cynthia Thayer, is at left between the two men. The officiating priest is not identified. Standing on the far left with a book in his hands is believed to be Llewellyn E. Thompson, Jr., a U.S. embassy official at the time. The baby's father, Charles W.
