September 11 didn’t just horrify us. It also galvanized our pride in being Americans. Photographer Dale Baskin ignored the destruction and instead captured displays of American flags. Karen S. Robbins, ’66, was so struck by his work that she joined forces with Baskin to put together an exhibit called “Flags Across America.” Some of Baskin’s work will be on display this September in the office of Lt. Gov. Brad Owens in Olympia. The flag in the photo (above) is draped behind supplies donated to EMS workers at Ground Zero in lower Manhattan following the collapse of the World Trade Center.
With Pride Flying High
