Gertrude May (Kimball) Whipple, the Whipple Flag's "Betsy Ross"

Yesterday Dave Martucci of the North American Vexillological Association sent the above newspaper clipping of Mrs. Wayne Whipple, who apparently sewed Wayne Whipple's flag of 1912. Dave gave permission to post the clipping.

Wayne Whipple's flag appears on the first page of the Whipple Blog (at the present time, at least). Blaine Whipple's article on The Whipple Flag appears on the Whipple Website. It will probably tell you things you didn't know before. More information appears in this blog on Flag Day 2008.
