Description

Pratt’s flagpole was unveiled by the Institute’s trustees on Armistice Day 1926 as a memorial to the men and women of Pratt who served in the armed forces during World War I.

The flagpole was designed by architect John Mead Howells (1868-1959), and the bronze sculpture at the base is the work of Pratt alumnus
Willard Dryden Paddock (1873-1956).

Its allegorical busts of women symbolize literature, labor skill, science, and art. The eagles represent the patriotism of North, South, East, and West. The pedestal is made of Maine granite.
