Who was Barron Collier?
Read about the amazing man who bought over 1 million acres of South Florida land and had a county named after him.
Besides completing the Tamiami Trail across the swamp and developing Everglades City, he also owned a group of resort hotels which attracted the rich and famous to Useppa, Tampa, West Palm Beach, Boca Grande, Lakeland, Bradenton, Punta Gorda, Sarasota, and to the most renown one, the Everglades Rod & Gun Club. But that’s not all -- he operated a telephone service, published newspapers, and provided transportation on ships and buses.
And, he was a big player during the Roaring Twenties in New York City where he hobnobbed with important people and reduced traffic accidents with his “Aunty J. Walker” campaign. He had grown up in Memphis and made his fortune in streetcar advertising which he used to promote charitable causes such as the Boy Scouts.
A new book EVERGLADES ENTREPRENEUR by local historian Marya Repko summarizes it all in her flowing prose illustrated by a plethora of old photos. To order online, see www.ecity-publishing.com or for more information, call the author at (239) 695-2905.
