Correspondence Relating to Arizona State Flag

Excerpt from the State of Arizona State Symbols, circa 1927

The collection contains correspondence, primarily a letter from Charles W. Harris, Adjutant General for Arizona, giving the history of the design and adoption of Arizona's state flag. It is a result of the Arizona Federation of Women's Clubs' attempt to designate an official flag day. Also includes form letters from Gov. George W. P. Hunt, Secretary of State J. W. Kerby, a letter from James McClintock, a broadside, and a newspaper clipping relating to the flag's history.
