Stephan Flores's Home Page created with now retired colleague Gordon Thomas Friday, June 9, 1995, 10:22 AM. [retained/maintained in its original design as an historical artifact!]
The 'woodcut' style image at top/above is a bookplate designed by Harry B. Flesher to represent strands in my paternal and maternal heritage: I am a member of the Sealaska Corporation (Alaska Native, Tsimshian) as well as an enrolled member of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa (North Dakota). My parents met at Haskell Institute (tribal school in Lawrence, Kansas).
