Hide Profile

The Everglades National Park Commission was formed in the late 1920's to preserve the Everglades as a national park, and the legislatures moved to pass the legislation needed, but the war of the 1930's and 1940's put the project on hold; in 1946 a new Commission was formed and legislation for the park was soon passed, and on Dec. 6, 1947 President Harry S. Truman dedicated the Everglades National Park.

Historical source: "The founding of Everglades National Park" by Charles M. Brookfield and Oliver Griswold in "They all called it tropical: true tales of the romantic Everglades, Cape Sable, and the Florida Keys" (Miami: Historical Association of Southern Florida, 1985).
