Anderson University alumnus Graham Brown has always been passionate about where he came from. So passionate, in fact, he centered a business on the idea of people being proud of where they came from. Brown’s business, United State of Indiana, is a company that celebrates Hoosiers by selling T-shirts with an iconic image of the state.
