Helen Muir (reporter)
Helen Muir was an American reporter and author. Her full name was Helen Teresa Eucharia Flaherty Lennehan Muir, her career included writing and editing for newspapers and magazines in Miami, she published four books focused on Miami's history. She was known for her advocacy of libraries, she was inducted into the Florida Women's Hall of Fame in 1984. Muir was born February 1911 at 110 Downing Street, in Yonkers, New York, she was named after Helen Teresa Flaherty. Her maternal great-grandfather, Geoffrey O'Flaherty of Waterford, great-grandmother Katherine Fitzgerald of County Clare, had left Ireland during the Irish Potato Famine; the family stopped using the "O" and was known as "Flaherty." Her father, Emmet Aloysius Lennehan, was the child of Margaret "Maggie" McGann and Timothy Lennehan, who taught philosophy in Dublin, before coming to the United States. Her paternal great-grandfather, Phillip McGann, fought for the Union in the Irish Brigade in the Battle of Gettysburg and was shot down defending a stone wall and waving an American flag.
Emmet began playing piano in a saloon with shots of whiskey as payment. He walked with a limp, because he was injured as a child sliding down a banister of his family's home, used a cane, he and Muir's mother, known as "Nellie" met young, eloped when they were eighteen and nineteen years old in Lake Champlain. When they returned, they were married again in a Catholic ceremony at St. Peter's Church, at their families' insistence. Emmet studied accounting by mail with Pace Correspondence School, he took a job as a bookkeeper with Spreckel's Sugar Company, worked his way up becoming the head of the fixed capital department at United Electric Company, which became Consolidated Edison. Muir had the older Katherine, "Kay," and a younger sister Marjorie, she credited her grandfather, John Henry Augustine Flaherty with teaching her how to read at a young age. He was a writer for the New York World. Katherine's husband, Robert Roth, was a writer as well, served as managing editor of the Mt. Vernon paper, before becoming the Washington correspondent for the Philadelphia Bulletin.
Muir finished high school in the "fatal summer of 1929." She had earned a scholarship to Simmons College to study drama, had been voted "most entertaining girl" in her graduating class at Yonkers High School. She took a summer job at the Yonkers Herald, "earning $65 dollars a month." At the end of the summer, she told her mother. She continued working as a journalist, never obtained a college degree; the Yonkers Herald became the Herald Statesman, Muir became Society Editor. She moved from the Herald Statesman to the New York Post, to the New York Journal, she was writing a column about Westchester County, when Carl Byoir asked her to help with the Westchester Biltmore Country Club Fashion Show and Ball at the Waldorf Astoria. Muir was able to convince the New York World-Telegram to publish a full-page of photographs, which caught the attention of Eleanor Roosevelt, a member of the committee hosting the event. At the Biltmore Ball, Carl Byoir offered Muir a job publicizing the Roney Plaza Hotel in Miami Beach.
In December, 1934, Muir left New York City on the Havana Special. She was 23 years old, her friends at the New York Journal threw her such a farewell party, she nearly missed the 10 PM departure. It took two days to reach Miami by train, when she arrived, she was whisked off to the Biltmore Hotel for breakfast with Carl Byoir's people, she was told that she would be interviewing Eddie Rickenbacker the same evening at the Roney Plaza Hotel. Overnight, she was interviewing people like Doris Duke, Yvonne Printemps, Pierre Fresnay, Nathaniel Gubbins, Clare Boothe Luce, Errol Flynn, other notable public figures, she intended to stay one season, but an offer from the city editor of The Miami News, Frank Malone, to run the rewrite desk gave her pause. She wrote about Florida as a columnist for the Universal Service syndicate from 1935 to 1938 and wrote freelance for The Miami News and the Miami Herald until 1965. In 1941, she had a daily column, "Very Truly Yours" in The Miami News, she left the post after the attack on Pearl Harbor, to become publicist for the "Committee to Defend America," and had a radio program called Women in Defense on WQAM during World War II.
By 1943, she was serving as women's editor for The Miami News. During her career, she interviewed and wrote about the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Jessica Mitford, John Barrymore, Alfred Hitchcock, Joan Crawford, Christina Crawford, Liza Minnelli, Ernest Hemingway, Tennessee Williams, Alan Alda and Lady Clement Attlee, Larry King, was one of the first American journalists to interview the Beatles during their visit to Miami Beach to perform for the Ed Sullivan Show at the Deauville Hotel. Aside from interviewing famous visitors to Miami, Muir wrote articles that were published nationally. For example, on April 25, 1951, an article she wrote regarding the Parrot Jungle, "Glorious Things That Fly," appeared in The Saturday Evening Post. During her career, she served as editor for The Miami News. Significant productions were performed at the Coconut Grove Playhouse, including Auntie Mame, starring Gypsy Rose Lee, Show Boat, with Julie Wilson, Waiting for Godot, with Bert Lahr, she received praise including at the Lyric Theater.
At a commemorative event, Muir was proud to be recognized by a speaker, who said "When you were black and wanted anything reviewed, Mrs. Muir was the only one." She travelled writing about theatrical productions in Ireland, England and Portugal, until 1965 when she felt that theater had become "unpleasant."H
John Russell Pope
John Russell Pope was an American architect whose firm is known for designing major public buildings, including the National Archives and Records Administration building, the Jefferson Memorial and the West Building of the National Gallery of Art, all in Washington, DC. Pope was born in the son of a successful portrait painter and his wife, he studied architecture at Columbia University and graduated in 1894. He was the first recipient of the Rome Prize to attend the newly founded American Academy in Rome, a training ground for the designers of the "American Renaissance." He would remain involved with the Academy until his death. Pope traveled for two years through Italy and Greece, where he studied and made measured drawings of more Romanesque and Renaissance structures than he did of the remains of ancient buildings. Pope was one of the first architectural students to master the use of the large-format camera, with glass negatives. Pope attended the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris in 1896. After returning to New York in 1900, he worked for a few years in the office of Bruce Price before opening his own practice.
Throughout his career, Pope designed private houses such as The Waves, his personal residence at Newport, Rhode Island, public buildings in addition to the Jefferson Memorial and the National Gallery, such as the massive Masonic House of the Temple in Washington, the triumphal arch Theodore Roosevelt Memorial at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. He designed the extension of the Henry Clay Frick mansion in New York City that created the Garden Court and music room, among other features, as the house was expanded to be operated as a museum. In 1912 he lost out to Henry Bacon. In 1919, he developed a master plan for the future growth of Yale University. Pope's plan for Yale was revised by James Gamble Rogers in 1921, who had more sympathy for the requirements of the city of New Haven, Connecticut. Rogers did keep the Collegiate Gothic unifying theme offered by Pope. Pope's original plan is a prime document in the City Beautiful movement in city planning. Pope won a Silver Medal in the 1932 Summer Olympics for his design of the Payne Whitney Gymnasium.
His firm's designs alternated between revivals of Gothic, eighteenth-century French, classical styles. Pope designed the Henry E. Huntington mausoleum on the grounds of The Huntington Library in southern California, he used the design as a prototype for the Jefferson Memorial in Washington, D. C; the Jefferson Memorial and the National Gallery of Art were both neoclassical, modeled by Pope on the Roman Pantheon. Lesser known projects by Pope's firm include Union Station, Virginia, with a central rotunda capped with a low saucer dome. C. the National City Christian Church, Constitution Hall, American Pharmacists Association Building, Ward Homestead, the National Archives Building. In Milwaukee, Wisconsin, he designed a severe neo-Georgian clubhouse for the University Club. In Oneonta, New York, he designed the first building for Hartwick College: Bresee Hall was constructed in 1928. In 1932, he constructed the chapter house for Alpha Delta Phi at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York. Earlier, he designed the City Hall in Plattsburgh, New York, completed in 1917, the city's Macdonough Monument, erected in 1926 to commemorate the naval victory of Commodore Macdonough in the Battle of Plattsburgh on September 11, 1814.
Pope designed additions to the Tate Gallery and British Museum in London, an unusual honor for an American architect, the War Memorial at Montfaucon-d'Argonne, France. Popealso designed extensive alterations to Belcourt, the Newport residence of Oliver and Alva Belmont; the Georgian Revival residence he built in 1919 for Thomas H. Frothingham in Far Hills, New Jersey has been adapted as the United States Golf Association Museum. Pope was a member of the U. S. Commission of Fine Arts in Washington, DC from 1912 to 1922, serving as vice chairman from 1921 to 1922, he served on the Board of Architectural Consultants for the Federal Triangle complex in Washington, D. C. A 1991 exhibition at the National Gallery of Art, John Russell Pope and the Building of the National Gallery of Art, spurred reappraisal of his work. For some time, it had been scorned and derided as overly historicist by many critics influenced by International Modernism. Pope served as an early mentor and employer of American modernist Lester C.

Star Island (Miami Beach)
Star Island is a neighborhood of South Beach in the city of Miami Beach on a man-made island in Biscayne Bay, United States. The island is just east of Palm and Hibiscus islands. Completed in 1922 by the Army Corps of Engineers by dredging sand, the land was owned by developer Carl Fisher, who purchased several land parcels of what would become the city of Miami Beach, it is accessible by barrier islands via the MacArthur Causeway. Students from Star Island are served by the following schools of the Miami-Dade County Public Schools: South Pointe Elementary School Nautilus Middle School Miami Beach High School Celebrities who own or have owned homes on the island include Sean Combs and Gloria Estefan, Don Johnson, Rosie O'Donnell and Shaquille O'Neal. Tour guides and realtors have made false claims of some other celebrities having homes on Star Island, such as LeBron James, Jennifer Lopez, Julio Iglesias, Sylvester Stallone and Elizabeth Taylor. In a 1979 trial, prosecutors alleged that members of the Ethiopian Zion Coptic Church ran a marijuana smuggling ring in the Star Island house purchased 20 years by O'Donnell.
Some scenes from the 1994 movie The Specialist were filmed there
Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Fort Lauderdale is a city in the U. S. state of Florida, 28 miles north of Miami. It is the county seat of Broward County; as of the 2017 census, the city has an estimated population of 180,072. Fort Lauderdale is a principal city of the Miami metropolitan area, home to an estimated 6,158,824 people in 2017; the city is a popular tourist destination, with an average year-round temperature of 75.5 °F and 3,000 hours of sunshine per year. Greater Fort Lauderdale, encompassing all of Broward County, hosted 12 million visitors in 2012, including 2.8 million international visitors. In 2012, the county collected $43.9 million from the 5% hotel tax it charges, after hotels in the area recorded an occupancy rate for the year of 72.7 percent and an average daily rate of $114.48. The district has 561 motels comprising nearly 35,000 rooms. Forty-six cruise ships sailed from Port Everglades in 2012. Greater Fort Lauderdale has over 4,000 restaurants, 63 golf courses, 12 shopping malls, 16 museums, 132 nightclubs, 278 parkland campsites, 100 marinas housing 45,000 resident yachts.
Fort Lauderdale is named after a series of forts built by the United States during the Second Seminole War. The forts took their name from Major William Lauderdale, younger brother of Lieutenant Colonel James Lauderdale. William Lauderdale was the commander of the detachment of soldiers. However, development of the city did not begin until 50 years after the forts were abandoned at the end of the conflict. Three forts named "Fort Lauderdale" were constructed: the first was at the fork of the New River, the second was at Tarpon Bend on the New River between the present-day Colee Hammock and Rio Vista neighborhoods, the third was near the site of the Bahia Mar Marina; the area in which the city of Fort Lauderdale would be founded was inhabited for more than two thousand years by the Tequesta Indians. Contact with Spanish explorers in the 16th century proved disastrous for the Tequesta, as the Europeans unwittingly brought with them diseases, such as smallpox, to which the native populations possessed no resistance.
For the Tequesta, coupled with continuing conflict with their Calusa neighbors, contributed to their decline over the next two centuries. By 1763, there were only a few Tequesta left in Florida, most of them were evacuated to Cuba when the Spanish ceded Florida to the British in 1763, under the terms of the Treaty of Paris, which ended the Seven Years' War. Although control of the area changed between Spain, United Kingdom, the United States, the Confederate States of America, it remained undeveloped until the 20th century; the Fort Lauderdale area was known as the "New River Settlement" before the 20th century. In the 1830s there were 70 settlers living along the New River. William Cooley, the local Justice of the Peace, was a farmer and wrecker, who traded with the Seminole Indians. On January 6, 1836, while Cooley was leading an attempt to salvage a wrecked ship, a band of Seminoles attacked his farm, killing his wife and children, the children's tutor; the other farms in the settlement were not attacked, but all the white residents in the area abandoned the settlement, fleeing first to the Cape Florida Lighthouse on Key Biscayne, to Key West.
The first United States stockade named Fort Lauderdale was built in 1838, subsequently was a site of fighting during the Second Seminole War. The fort was abandoned in 1842, after the end of the war, the area remained unpopulated until the 1890s, it was not until Frank Stranahan arrived in the area in 1893 to operate a ferry across the New River, the Florida East Coast Railroad's completion of a route through the area in 1896, that any organized development began. The city was incorporated in 1911, in 1915 was designated the county seat of newly formed Broward County. Fort Lauderdale's first major development began during the Florida land boom; the 1926 Miami Hurricane and the Great Depression of the 1930s caused a great deal of economic dislocation. In July 1935, an African-American man named Rubin Stacy was accused of robbing a white woman at knife point, he was being transported to a Miami jail when police were run off the road by a mob. A group of 100 white men proceeded to hang Stacy from a tree near the scene of his alleged robbery.
His body was riddled with some twenty bullets. The murder was subsequently used by the press in Nazi Germany to discredit US critiques of its own persecution of Jews and Catholics; when World War II began, Fort Lauderdale became a major US base, with a Naval Air Station to train pilots, radar operators, fire control operators. A Coast Guard base at Port Everglades was established. On July 4, 1961 African Americans started a series of protests, wade-ins, at beaches that were off-limits to them, to protest "the failure of the county to build a road to the Negro beach". On July 11, 1962 a verdict by Ted Cabot went against the city's policy of racial segregation of public beaches. Today, Fort Lauderdale is a major yachting center, one of the nation's largest tourist destinations, the center of a metropolitan division with 1.8 million people. After the war ended, service members returned to the area, spurring an enormous population explosion which dwarfed the 1920s boom; the 1960 Census counted 83,648 people in about 230 % of the 1950 figure.
A 1967 report estimated that the city was 85% developed, the 1970 population figure was 139,590. After 1970, as Fort Lauderdale became built out, growth in the area shifted to suburbs to the west; as cities such as Coral Springs and Pembroke Pines experienced explosive growth, Fort Lauderdale's population stagnated, the ci
Mission Revival architecture
The Mission Revival Style was an architectural movement that began in the late 19th century for a colonial style's revivalism and reinterpretation, which drew inspiration from the late 18th and early 19th century Spanish missions in California. The Mission Revival movement enjoyed its greatest popularity between 1890 and 1915, in numerous residential and institutional structures – schools and railroad depots – which used this recognizable architectural style. All of the 21 Franciscan Alta California missions, including their chapels and support structures, shared certain design characteristics; these commonalities arose because the Franciscan missionaries all came from the same places of previous service in Spain and colonial Mexico City in New Spain. The New Spain religious buildings the founding Franciscan saw and emulated were of the Spanish Colonial style, which in turn was derived from Renaissance and Baroque examples in Spain; the limited availability and variety of building materials besides adobe near mission sites or imported to Alta California limited design options.
The missionaries and their indigenous Californian workforce had minimal construction skills and experience. OriginalsThe missions' style of necessity and security evolved around an enclosed courtyard, using massive adobe walls with broad unadorned plaster surfaces, limited fenestration and door piercing, low-pitched roofs with projecting wide eaves and non-flammable clay roof tiles, thick arches springing from piers. Exterior walls were coated with white plaster, which with wide side eaves shielded the adobe brick walls from rain. Other features included long exterior arcades, an enfilade of interior rooms and halls, semi-independent bell-gables, at more prosperous missions curved'Baroque' gables on the principal facade with towers. RevivalThese architectural elements were replicated, in varying degrees and proportions, in the new Mission Revival structures. Simultaneous with the original style's revival was an awareness in California of the actual missions fading into ruins and their restoration campaigns, nostalgia in the changing state for a'simpler time' as the novel Ramona popularized at the time.
Contemporary construction materials and practices, earthquake codes, building uses render the structural and religious architectural components aesthetic decoration, while the service elements such as tile roofing, solar shielding of walls and interiors, outdoor shade arcades and courtyards are still functional. The Mission Revival style of architecture, subsequent Spanish Colonial Revival style, have historical, narrative—nostalgic, cultural—environmental associations, climate appropriateness that have made for a predominant historical regional vernacular architecture style in the Southwestern United States in California; the Mission Inn in Southern California is one of the largest extant Mission Revival Style buildings in the United States. Located in Riverside, it has been restored, with tours of the style's expression. Other structures designed in the Mission Revival Style include:The Hotel Castañeda, a Harvey House in Las Vegas, New Mexico, opened January 1, 1899; the first Mission Revival style building in New Mexico, architects Frederick Roehrig and A. Reinsch.

Florida is the southernmost contiguous state in the United States. The state is bordered to the west by the Gulf of Mexico, to the northwest by Alabama, to the north by Georgia, to the east by the Atlantic Ocean, to the south by the Straits of Florida. Florida is the 22nd-most extensive, the 3rd-most populous, the 8th-most densely populated of the U. S. states. Jacksonville is the most populous municipality in the state and the largest city by area in the contiguous United States; the Miami metropolitan area is Florida's most populous urban area. Tallahassee is the state's capital. Florida's $1.0 trillion economy is the fourth largest in the United States. If it were a country, Florida would be the 16th largest economy in the world, the 58th most populous as of 2018. In 2017, Florida's per capita personal income was ranking 26th in the nation; the unemployment rate in September 2018 was 3.5% and ranked as the 18th in the United States. Florida exports nearly $55 billion in goods made in the 8th highest among all states.
The Miami Metropolitan Area is by far the largest urban economy in Florida and the 12th largest in the United States with a GDP of $344.9 billion as of 2017. This is more than twice the number of the next metro area, the Tampa Bay Area, which has a GDP of $145.3 billion. Florida is home to 51 of the world's billionaires with most of them residing in South Florida; the first European contact was made in 1513 by Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de León, who called it la Florida upon landing there in the Easter season, known in Spanish as Pascua Florida. Florida was a challenge for the European colonial powers before it gained statehood in the United States in 1845, it was a principal location of the Seminole Wars against the Native Americans, racial segregation after the American Civil War. Today, Florida is distinctive for its large Cuban expatriate community and high population growth, as well as for its increasing environmental issues; the state's economy relies on tourism and transportation, which developed in the late 19th century.
Florida is renowned for amusement parks, orange crops, winter vegetables, the Kennedy Space Center, as a popular destination for retirees. Florida is the flattest state in the United States. Lake Okeechobee is the largest freshwater lake in the U. S. state of Florida. Florida's close proximity to the ocean influences many aspects of daily life. Florida is a reflection of multiple inheritance. Florida has attracted many writers such as Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, Ernest Hemingway and Tennessee Williams, continues to attract celebrities and athletes, it is internationally known for golf, auto racing, water sports. Several beaches in Florida have emerald-colored coastal waters. About two-thirds of Florida occupies a peninsula between the Gulf of the Atlantic Ocean. Florida has the longest coastline in the contiguous United States 1,350 miles, not including the contribution of the many barrier islands. Florida has a total of 4,510 islands; this is the second-highest number of islands of any state of the United States.
It is the only state that borders both the Gulf of the Atlantic Ocean. Much of the state is characterized by sedimentary soil. Florida has the lowest high point of any U. S. state. The climate varies from subtropical in the north to tropical in the south; the American alligator, American crocodile, American flamingo, Roseate spoonbill, Florida panther, bottlenose dolphin, manatee can be found in Everglades National Park in the southern part of the state. Along with Hawaii, Florida is one of only two states that has a tropical climate, is the only continental state with either a tropical climate or a coral reef; the Florida Reef is the only living coral barrier reef in the continental United States, the third-largest coral barrier reef system in the world. By the 16th century, the earliest time for which there is a historical record, major Native American groups included the Apalachee of the Florida Panhandle, the Timucua of northern and central Florida, the Ais of the central Atlantic coast, the Tocobaga of the Tampa Bay area, the Calusa of southwest Florida and the Tequesta of the southeastern coast.
Florida was the first region of the continental United States to be visited and settled by Europeans. The earliest known European explorers came with the Spanish conquistador Juan Ponce de León. Ponce de León spotted and landed on the peninsula on April 2, 1513, he named the region Florida. The story that he was searching for the Fountain of Youth is mythical and only appeared long after his death. In May 1539, Conquistador Hernando de Soto skirted the coast of Florida, searching for a deep harbor to land, he described seeing a thick wall of red mangroves spread mile after mile, some reaching as high as 70 feet, with intertwined and elevated roots making landing difficult. The Spanish introduced Christianity, horses, the Castilian language, more to Florida. Spain established several settlements with varying degrees of success. In 1559, Don Tristán de Luna y Arellano established a settlement at present-day Pensacola, making it the first attempted settlement in Florida, but it was abandoned by 1561.
In 1565, the settlement of St. Augustine was established under the leadership of admiral and
Mediterranean Revival architecture
Mediterranean Revival is a design style introduced in the United States in the waning nineteenth century variously incorporating references from Spanish Renaissance, Spanish Colonial, Beaux-Arts, Italian Renaissance, Arabic Andalusian architecture, Venetian Gothic architecture. Peaking in popularity during the 1920s and 1930s, the movement drew on the style of palaces and seaside villas and applied them to the expanding coastal resorts of Florida and California. Structures are based on a rectangular floor plan, feature massive, symmetrical primary façades. Stuccoed walls, red tiled roofs, windows in the shape of arches or circles, one or two stories, wood or wrought iron balconies with window grilles, articulated door surrounds are characteristic. Keystones were employed. Ornamentation may be dramatic. Lush gardens appear; the style was most applied to hotels, apartment buildings, commercial structures, residences. Architects August Geiger and Addison Mizner were foremost in Florida, while Bertram Goodhue, Sumner Spaulding, Paul Williams were in California.
There are examples of this architectural style in Cuba, such as the Hotel Nacional de Cuba, in Havana. E. W.
