Tampa Historical is an interactive web exhibit created and maintained by students and faculty at the University of South Florida. Students are responsible for the research and writing of all entries. These entries should be considered a work-in-progress - a rough draft of our community's history - rather than the final word on this history. Interested visitors are encouraged to consult the primary and secondary sources listed in each entry for further information.

For information, please contact Dr. K. Stephen Prince (ksp@usf.edu) and Dr. Jennifer Knight (jlknight@usf.edu), USF Department of History.

Special Thanks to Special and Digital Collections, USF Tampa Library, and to the USF Department of History.
