Sylvanus Griswold Morley was a man famous for two reasons: primarily as the foremost expert on Mayan archeology and secondarily as the greatest American spy in World War I. Due to his archeological work in the Yucatan and his familiarity with the region, Morley was asked by the US Navel Intelligence Office to determine if, and where, the Germans might be trying to establish submarine bases along the Caribbean coasts in the region.

During his time in Guatemala, Morley came to own many pieces of Spanish colonial furniture. The original piece that inspired this chair’s distinctly carved wood stretcher is a large ornately carved armoire believed to have come from a church in Antigua, Guatemala, the ancient Spanish capital of Meso-America. The original armoire is part of the collections at the New Mexico History Museum.
