Dear Mr. Parham:
Enclosed are two copies of the proposed Memorandum of Agreement between
the Hitoric St. Augustine Preservation Board and the Florida Medical Asso-
ciation regarding the operation of the Museum of Florida Medical History.
Dr. DeVito has seen a copy of this proposed memorandum and sees no problem
If the memorandum, as it stands, meets with your approval please sign one
copy and return to us. If, however, there are points which you feel need clari-
fication or revision let me know and a substitute document can be prepared.
Dr. Calkin continues to work on the exhibits as time permits and progress is
being made. On April 1 the Spanish Military Hospital, in thich the Museum of
Florida Medical History is located, will be placed on the block admission
ticket along with almost every one of our operating facilities. Individual admis-
sion will also be available at the hospital, and we anticipate an increase of
visitation at this facility rather than a decrease, since we believe that people
who may ordinarily not come downtown will seek out the hospital as part of the
package which they have purchased. This should lead to a greater exposure of
the Museum of Florida Medical History to the public.
John W. Griffin, Director
Historic St. Augustine
