He would be the second youngest player in the event at age 20. Santasiere was younger, and he wore glasses, so Santasiere is on the left. Find the face that looks the youngest and that should be Morris.
May-02-14  TheFocus: <hemy> This photo appears in <American Chess Bulletin>, September - October, page 145. The key there says: <Seated at the table are Marshall (left) and Janowski, with H. Helms and H.M. Phillips looking on. Standing from left to right: Kupchik, Hodges,Morrison, Black, Palmer, H.S. Holt, Schapiro, Lasker, Fowler, Santasiere, Cassel, Trefzer. (In the rear) Mutchler, Bigelow, Tenner and Chajes.>

There is a second group shot, slightly different, on page 138.
