    The gentleman third from the left is Governor Newcomer. The photo was perhaps taken at the Municipal Engineering Division (which was headquartered in Ancon), which may explain the pipe valves in the foreground.

    If my fading memory serves, I think that General Newcomer was Director of Maintenance before his appointment as Lieutenant Governor of the Canal, and then Governor.
