The Iron Arrow Chief Portraits

Iron Arrow Honor Society, founded in 1926 in conjunction with the University’s opening, is the Highest Honor Attained at the University of Miami. Based on Seminole Indian tradition, Iron Arrow recognizes those individuals in the University of Miami community who exemplify the five qualities of Iron Arrow:¬†Love of Alma Mater, Character, Leadership, Scholarship, and Humility.

The members of Iron Arrow assemble twice a year to select those to be tapped for membership into the Tribe.

After today’s tappings, I had the pleasure of photographing eight¬†former chiefs of the Tribe along with the current chief.
