Any clue as to what this button means? I’ve got a guess, but I’m not positive.
The button is found in the Clarence Whitefield Memorabilia Collection, which was recently received by the North Carolina Collection Gallery. The majority of the items are related to UNC—football game buttons, UNC ties, General Alumni Association pins, ticket stubs, etc.–which is appropriate since Mr. Whitefield (UNC Class of 1944) led the University’s General Alumni Association from 1970 to 1982. We’ll share more of the collection from time to time, but in the mean time…any guesses on the pin above?

Referring to RDU airport becoming an international airport in the 1980’s? I think RDU to London was the first international route to fly out of RDU.
or maybe Charlotte. I remember when WSOC in Charlotte did a piece on RDU, making fun of it wanting a international flight instead of at Douglas
Interesting! FWIW, the little green wedge does seem to denote the Triangle. Could also be an alumni association trip, although green isnt the color I’d expect.
My guess was the same as Mark’s.
