1958 The Death of Ninah Cummer

Jun

03

“When you list the causes for which Mrs. Cummer provided leadership – parks, playgrounds, gardening, the arts – you realize that these comprise the things which make life in a city worth living. Her efforts for esthetic and cultural growth are memorialized in the city we see around us today, and will be even more evident in the greater and more beautiful city of tomorrow toward which we are evolving.”

“Mrs. Cummer Gave Us A Legacy of Beauty,” Florida Times Union, May 27, 1958.
