    I think the man in the middle is Alan R. Hawley, early aviator and in 1916 president of the Aero Club of America. He was in the news a fair amount, including events with military men, and had involvement with the armed forces on plans to expand the use of airplanes. I think there is a strong resemblance to Hawley in this undated photo, looking at his ballooning trophy. He may also be the person (though I am not as convinced) identified as A.H. Hawley in another Bain photo. This was Richard Arthur Norton's suggestion 56 months ago when the picture was posted here. A.H. Hawley  (LOC) See also:

    Mrs. G.L. Wilde is Mrs. George Wilde, the NYT, May 27, 1916 ("ARMY DRILLS AT GARDEN PARTY") has a description of her outfit. Mrs George Wilde appears quite often in the newspapers of that time, but without further informations who she was. In December 1920 she was the head of a committee of the Woman's Republican Club, see New-York tribune., December 19, 1920, Page 2, col. 4, "Winter Campain Plan of Woman's Republican Club".
