    About exhibition "....Largely forgotten is the moment in 1918 when, inspired by this poem, American woman Moina Belle Michael conceived of the poppy flower as a blood red symbol in silk to forever remember the victims of war." - a google check finds many many listings this American woman who responded to an advertisement for surgical supplies illustrated by a painting by Philip Lyford of doughboys rising to heaven from the flames.Her interest was their war veterans. Nothing to do with the imagery of "In Flanders Fields" first published in England in Punch Dec. 8/15 which inspired a French woman, Anna Guerin to approach the Empire countries with replicas as fundraiser tags to be worn to mark Armistice Day in 1921- no doubt quite unaware of the Georgia woman's activity which did not even sell her country into adopting the poppy image nationally. How odd to see England awash in poppy imagery, yet unaware of how the tradition began fall '21 when Mme. Guerin cold called on you new Legion to suggest the idea, fresh from success in Canada and the other Dominions.
