James Russell Lowell called Grover Cleveland the most typical American since Lincoln. Close to Cleveland could be placed Napoleon Bonaparte Broward. He was typical, but he was also unique. Limited in many ways and things, he was rich in others. His was an astonishing career: that of a man seemingly doomed to mediocrity and obscurity, yet whose worth and unremitting efforts for the betterment of his fellowmen have given him a place among those who have done most for Florida.
