“RALEIGH – Dr. I. Beverly Lake has not forgotten.
“On the outbox on his secretary’s desk is a phrase from the 1960 campaign: ‘The principles for which we fight are eternal!’….
“The same phrase hangs framed on his office wall…. Another wall is dominated by a blue and white flag he describes as an ‘unsurrendered battle standard’ from his grandfather’s Confederate brigade.”
— From “Dr. Lake is likely to run for governor again in 1964” by Joe Doster in the Charlotte Observer (July 8, 1962)
