2024 Annual Dinner and Program

Profile  shot (rev).jpg

This year's program will be presented by David Reddick. 

David B. Reddick’s book, “The Indiana Flag: Who Really Designed It?,” describes the campaign undertaken by the Indiana Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) between 1914 and 1917 to have lawmakers enact a unique state flag law.


Reddick’s slide presentation is entitled “Mary Stewart Carey and the Origins of the State Flag.” It focuses on how Carey, a Greensburg native and the chair of the DAR State Flag Committee, lobbied for the flag, only to have lawmakers strip the DAR’s bill in 1917, tweak the flag’s design, and end up designating the flag as the “state banner.” The presentation will conclude by mentioning two other civic projects that Carey undertook in Indianapolis.


Reddick spent 20 years of his working life as a journalist and then 24 years in the insurance industry. He and his wife, Rebecca, live in Camby, Indiana.
