Local historical societies in Florida can together accomplish much more towards the preservation of our State’s history than can the Florida Historical Society provided other societies are established in those areas where there are none now. Hence a major purpose of our Society should be and is cordial encouragement of them. Our members will recall the list of those societies in Florida which are active and inactive appended to the printed program of our last annual meeting. This shows that the number of active societies is larger now than at any time in the past. But the organization of other local, county, and regional societies is the one thing needed in Florida to bring the preservation of our history up to the level of that of our neighboring states.
