Ted Malone smiles as he looks up and to his right during a book signing. An open book lies on the desk under his hands where he holds a pen in his right hand that is attached to a base by a bead chain. His book, "Pack Up Your Troubles" is standing upright on the desk to Ted's left. A disc-style Westinghouse logo hangs on the folding room divider behind Ted's head. He wears a dark suit jacket and vest over a white shirt and a dark tie with a leaf pattern.
Ted Malone sits on a chair between a bed and dresser with a window behind him and holds a book open on the bed with his right hand as he holds a NBC microphone with his left hand on his lap and broadcasts from the Edgar Allan Poe Cottage. A clock, mirror, and two ceramic items sit on a dresser scarf on top of the dresser. A braided oval rug sits on the floor beside the bed.
