Biographical/Historical note

Robert Berning purchased the pennants from E-Bay, an online auction web site, with the intention of donating them to the Emporia State University Archives. Pennants of various designs have been used at Emporia, Kansas, colleges since at least the early 1900s. Although several are pictured in Kansas State Normal School yearbooks between 1908 and 1914, none appear to match the donated items. Robert Berning is a 1974 graduate of Kansas State Teachers College with a Master of Library Science degree.
