Mark F. Boyd Collection

Mark F. Boyd was a physician, researcher, and writer who specialized in tropical medicine. His research on malaria brought him international recognition and the Rockefeller Foundation selected him to conduct research throughout the malarial regions of the western hemisphere. During his long life he collected a range of materials related to field ecology and, in particular, items dealing with Florida, natural history, and medicine. This digital collection from the University of Miami libraries includes maps, newspapers, prints, original documents, and pencil drawings of Key Biscayne. The items here are lovely and they include a historical tour through Coral Gables, a brochure for the Hotel Everglades, and a remarkable brochure that lists apartment rates for the 1937-1938 winter season in Miami. It's a neat pastiche of items and folks with an interest in Florida's history and hospitality will enjoy it immensely.
