About the Author
Wayne Whipple was well known as the author of popular works on American history. In 1912, after he published "The Story of the American Flag," Whipple submitted a flag design for the new flag with 48 states. His design was chosen from among 500 entries. The winning flag, which Whipple called the "Peace Flag," was approved by President Taft, produced, and widely publicized throughout the nation.
