It was announced in the last issue of the Quarterly that the directors of the Society, at a special meeting held in Jacksonville May 2, provided for the organization of a committee to memorialize Dr. James Alexander Robertson’s unsurpassed contributions to the writing of the history of Florida. Acting on his authorization to appoint this committee the president of the Society secured with much gratification the acceptance of Mr. Charles B. Reynolds, author of the widely-read History of St. Augustine and long identified with the history of Florida, in particular as a member for many years of the Publications Committee of the Florida State Historical Society, as chairman of this committee. In consultation with Chairman Reynolds, President Hanna appointed the following members of the committee who have accepted: Dr. Kathryn T. Abbey, Mr. T. Frederick Davis, Mr. R. R. Otis, Mr. X. L. Pellicer, Prof. R. W. Severance, Mr. John B. Stetson, Jr., Miss Elizabeth Howard West, Dr. A. Curtis Wilgus, Mr. Julien C. Yonge and Miss Alice H. Lerch. At the request of the chairman, the president of the Society will serve, ex officio as a member of the committee.
