Who's Who in Florida

Interesting -Facts About Men and Women Who Are Doing Things

ROP in at the office of the vice president
of the Florida East Coast Railway in
charge of lands and industries sometime
when you are in St. Augustine and if
his time isn't already taken up for the
day you may have an opportunity to meet a quiet,
courtly and dignified gentleman whom you would
little suspect once tramped through marsh and
swamp from Ft. Myers to Ft. Dallis, (now Miami)
across many weary miles of tractless Everglades
never before traveled by white man.
You would never imagine that this man, genial
and pleasant, with nothing to remark of in the
way of physique, had once voluntarily undertaken
and completed a hike that would make the huski-
est member of the American Expeditionary Forces
hesitate, in order to learn more of the boundless
resources of a section of Florida that up to the
time of this achievement was marked "unex-
plored" in our school geography maps.
Measured by his exploits during his forty-seven
years of service in this State James E. Ingraham,
of St. Augustine, is in our opinion entitled to be
known as the first Floridian among the living.
The story of the actual service performed for
Florida by Mr. Ingraham together with the vast
works of the immortal Flagler with whom he was
associated for so many years, reads like fiction.
Henry M. Flagler possessed both means and vision
that is given to few men. J. E. Ingraham was
also endowed with vision and plenty of energy,
determination and the ability to accomplish. It
is Florida's good fortune that these two men were
brought together.
James E. Ingraham was born at Green Bay,
Wisconsin, seventy-two years ago. He married
in St. Louis in 1872 and he and his gocJ wife with
their son and daughter celebrated their golden
wedding anniversary at St. Augustine last sum-
Coming to Florida in 1874 Mr. Ingraham first
located near Tallahassee where for a time he
taught school, having himself been educated in
Racine College, Racine, Wisconsin.
In 1875 Mr. Ingraham moved to Sanford where
he took charge of a large general store owned by
General Henry S. Sanford, later becoming general
agent for General Sanford's interests in Florida
which included a small line of railroad that- after-
wards became the South Florida Railroad with
Mr. Ingraham as president. The first line ran
from Sanford to Kissimmee but after a short time
it was extended to Tampa connecting with Plant
steamships for Cuba, completing a through rail
and water line from New York to Havana.
Mr. Ingraham was connected with this road and
associated with Henry B. Plant until 1892 when
he led the famous expedition across the then un-
explored Everglades of Florida. Up to this time
no white man had ever undertaken to penetrate
the glades to any extent south of Lake Okee-
chobee. There were no United States Govern-
ment surveys covering this vast section and the
only knowledge of it, which was vague and in-
definite, in possession of the outside world came
from the Seminole Indians.
Mr. Ingraham was curious about this unknown
country. He thought it should be explored so he
set out, accompanied by a few companions, to do
the job. In the party were S. O. Chase, of San-
ford, W. R. Moses, of Ft. Pierce, J. H. Newman,
a civil engineer, and a few others.
The start was made from Ft. Myers which was
little more at that time than the name implies
and a course was set for Ft. Dallis on the site
of the present city of Miami. The expedition
planned to make the trip
in nine days and carried ,-- - -. .------- -- --

IHE average man would never have round-
ed out the record of accomplishment in
the upbuilding and developing of his
State that old timers know belongs to James
E. Ingraham; but of course those who know
him will agree with the writer that Mr. In-
graham's work throughout his forty-seven
years of residence in Florida has shown him
to be far above the average. There is no
question but what in value of his services to
the East Coast section he ranks second only
to Henry M. Flagler and without a doubt he
is the dean of the constructive builders of
this State living today.-EDITOR.

they were very warmly welcomed and well fed.
As soon as possible thereafter Mr. Ingraham
made an extensive written report of the trip, and
the country passed through, to Mr. Plant. Henry
M. Flagler, a director of the Plant System and
owner of the Jacksonville, St. Augustine and
Halifax River Railroad, running from Jackson-
ville to Daytona, asked to see a copy of this re-
port and being much impressed by the author's
description of the lower East Coast as well as
his apparent vision and ability, induced Mr. In-
graham to become general agent for his road to
assist in carrying, out plans, based to a great
extent upon thisinformation, to transform the
lower East Coast, then a wilderness, into the na-
tion's best known winter resort section, now fa-
mous the world over.
The Flagler railroad was extended from Day-
tona to Palm Beach in 1894 and on to Miami in
1896. Later it was built to Homestead and in

Viaduct on the Key West Extension of the Florida E



1904 the first survey was made to extend the line
overseas to Key West.
Many of our readers are familiar with the fa-
mous Key West extension of the Florida East
Coast Railway. There is nothing parallel to it
from an engineering standpoint anywhere in the
world. Leaving the mainland of Florida at a
point about twenty miles south of Homestead the
line extends for one hundred and twenty-eight
miles to Key West connecting a string of Florida
keys by means of a series of steel and concrete
viaducts. Take a look at the map and you will
see that a large part of this line is. exposed to the
open sea on both sides. The longest viaduct at
Long Key is seven miles in length while others
range from a fraction of a mile to two or three
miles long. The construction of this extension
was costly and hazardous owing to the exposure
of the work to tropical storms. Interruptions
from this source did not occur often but when
they did occur the results were generally more
or less serious. J. C. Meredith was the engineer
in charge of the work at the beginning and until
it was well along, when he died and was succeed-
ed by his assistant, W. J. Krome, who finished
the job.
Beginning in 1908 trains were run to Knight's
Key dock over half the distance from the main-
land to Key West where they connected with
steamers for Havana. January 22nd, 1912, the
first train went over the entire extension into Key
West and the great undertaking was. done.
It is doubtful if J. E. Ingraham realizes today
the full extent of his responsibility in the de-
velopment of the lower East Coast and the build-
ing of the Key West extension. Had he never
visited Miami and made the glowing report of
the lower East Coast section which so interested
Mr. Flagler it is a question whether or not that
financial genius would ever have become inter-
ested in some other way. Certainly Mr. In-
graham's report had a great influence upon Mr.
Flagler and Mr. Ingraham's vision of the future
East Coast and the great possibilities that would
result from its development undoubtedly impressed
the great financier. It isn't likely that anyone
attempted to persuade Mr. Flagler to build the
Key West extension as the very idea when first
suggested was simply appalling in its magnitude,
however, it is reasonable to assume that Key
West would have no railroad today had Henry
M. Flagler not first been interested in extending
his line of railroad to the lower East Coast.
A few years ago Florida East Coast officials
decided to ferry freight trains from Key West
to Havana and the first big ocean-going ferry,
The Henry M. Flagler, was built for this service.
This undertaking was so successful and the de-
mand upon the one boat so heavy that a short
time later another ferry, The Joseph R. Parrot.
named for another of Mr. Flagler's trusted lieu-
tenants who was president of the railroad during
the construction of the Key West extension and
whose death came a short time after that of his
chief, was built and placed in service. These
boats have a capacity of something like fifty
freight cars each and do an enormous business
as the freight traffic of the Florida East Coast
Rairload from all parts of the nation to Cuba
has naturally developed very rapidly as a result
of the superior facilities for handling it.
About 1899 the Flagler railroad was named
the Florida East Coast Railroad and Mr. In-
graham was its first general agent, later becom-
ing land commissioner and in May, 1897, he be-
came third vice president. In 1908 he became
vice president in charge
of lands and industries,
which position he still
holds. Several different
organizations look after
the land interests of the
Flagler estate in Florida
including the Model Land
Company, Okeechobee
Company, Chulota Com-
pany and the Perrine
Grant Land Company.
Mr. Ingraham is presi-
dent of each of these
companies and the direct-
ing head. He is also a
director of the Florida
East Coast Hotel Com-
pany which operates the
famous line of coast ho-
tels including the Ponce
de Leon and Alcazar at

his efforts to push the agricultural de-

moment since he got into the harness
years ago. In this respect it is prob-
able that he: has actually done more
for Florida than any other one man.
He has always been a great believer
in Florida's resources for live stock
farming which the following from an
issue of The Farmer and Stockman
several months ago, published at Jack-
sonville, will testify:
"Few men in America today have a
record of accomplishment back of them
that will equal that of J. E. Ingraham.
Certainly no one man has been as im-
portant a factor in putting over the
idea of better live stock in Florida.
"Years ago Mr. Ingraham became con-
vinced that Florida possessed decided
advantages f.: raising impro,-ed live
stock. He knew good live stock and
what it would do for the State, so he
began systematically to advocate the
raising of good live stock in Florida
and to advertise Florida's advantages
in that direction in the public press
and in the vast amount of advertising
literature for the land holdings that
he represented. At that time there
were few people either in the State or
oui who would believe that it was

adapted to anything aside from the
raising of citrus fruits and truck crops
and entertaining winter tourists. Un-
supp'orted and alone in his belief, Mr.
Ingraham continued to insist that di-
versified farming with live stock in
Floftda could not only be made profit-
able to the farmer, but that it would
become an economic necessity in the
hear future. People did not actually
scoff at Mr. Ingraham's ideas, because
he had already made his reputation
as a man of vision, energy, ability and
good judgment, but it took an awful
lot of persistent hammering on his part
to make an impression. Finally his
opinions and ideas on the subject be-
gan to take root and good cattle and
hogs-appeared here and there through-
out the State where thev had been un- *
known before.
"Mr. Ingraham did not advocate the
importation of good stock into Florida
without preparation on the part of the
farmers. On the contrary, he urged
them to be ready to feed their stock,
to grow such pasture, forage, hay and
grain crops sufficient to maintain their
stock and those who are today follow-
ing his advice on this point are known
as successful farmers. He was one of
the first, if not the first, to advocate f
the use of pure bred bulls on the range
to breed up the beef herds. He has
rendered a service to Florida by giving
publicity to improve live stock farm-
ing in the State that has never been

has accomplished in advancing the im-
proved live stock interests of Florida i
may be largely credited to J. E. In-
graham, who not only gave the present
editor abundant inspiration to which
he added his influence and substantial
co-operation from time to time.,
"For a quarter of centur-' past, J. E.
Ingraham has advocated and preached
diversified farming with good live
stock as the most dependable source of
profit for the Florida farmer, and he is
still doing it today. Literally millions
of copies of booklets, pamphlets, leaf-
lets and folders, setting forth the
strongest kind of proof to sustain his
contentions. have been sent by his di-

'Why the northern terminus of the turn-pike should be south of Jacksonville on U.S. #1
near Bayard instead of by-passing Jacksonville to the west and north as proposed by the
turn-pike authority.

1. Jacksonville Businesses of all kinds now receive around one hundred MILLION DOLLARS
annually from the tourists who pass through and spend the night in and around
Jacksonville. Most of this revenue would be lost to Jacksonville if turn-pike by-passes
Jacksonville as proposed.

2. Property values will decline throughout Jacksonville and Duval County if turn-pike
by-passes Jacksonville.

3. Our Jacksonville EXPRESS-WAY was authorized, surveyed and bonds sold on the
strength that the out-of-state traffic entering Jacksonville on the various Federal
Highways would use the EXPRESS-WAY SYSTEM and pay bridge tolls. Diverting this
traffic away from our EXPRESS-WAY is unfair and many of us feel illegal.

4. Changing the route of the turn-pike to terminate south of Jacksonville in addition
to "Saving" Jacksonville will bring many more customers to the turn-pike as it will
then attract all of the business from the ENTIRE City of Jacksonville and Duval
County. It will also attract some business for a short distance for those heading
towards Daytona Beach and further South on U. S. #1.

5. To change the route from the west and North (as recommended by turn-pike authority)
to south of Jacksonville on U. S. f1, there would be nothing to lose but very much to
gain. Outside of a few speculators and owners of undeveloped acreage, WHO WOULD
LOSE by this change.

6. The route that we suggest can be built at a considerable saving below the other route.
The savings has been placed at approximately TWENTY MILLION DOLLARS.

7. Jacksonville has been the GATE-WAY City of Florida ever since it came into
existence. Let's don't let it be made into the by passed City of Florida.

8. Jacksonville has been growing and progressing wonderfully during the past decade and
longer. If this by-passing turn-pike is built, the tTempo" will change downward,
stagnation and much slower development will be the result.

9. Should Governor Collins and his turn-pike authority have actually "gone out" and
tried to do Jacksonville the greatest damage possible, I can not see in what way
they might have accomplished greater harm.

10. This Chinese Wall will stop the growth of Jacksonville to the North and West because
of the limited number of roads across it. This in turn will curtail our taxable land
values used to build our city and our own free roads.

11 Its been said that the traffic will congest the road system of Jacksonville, but the
engineering firm of Parson, Brinkerhoff, Hall, and McDonald said in 1953 that the
completed expressway and interstate route through Jacksonville would easily
handle the traffic the Pike would generate. This firm did the traffic survey on
part of the Bobtail Pike.

Resume' of Corps of Engineers Investigations Relative to
Sanford- Titusville Canal


The Sanford-Titusville Canal has not yet attained the status of being a
Federal project. It is for that reason not a part of the Central and Southern
Florida Flood Control Project. There is, of course, the probability that if
it is eventually authorized as a Federal project that it would be added to the
Flood Control Project. This would be the case if the flood control aspects of
the canal were found to be quite important, and if a clear relation in purposes
and functions between the canal and the flood control project should become
evident. If, however, studies now in progress on the upper St. Johns River
portion of the Central and Southern Florida Flood Control Project should show
that diversion of St. Johns River water to Indian River is impractical, ineffec-
tive, or for reasons of public objections inadvisable, then Sanford-Titusville
Canal investigations might remain as a navigation study having little or no
flood control aspects. If the latter is the case, there would appear to be little
reason to add it to a flood control project even if it should be otherwise eco!-
nomically justified and eventually adopted as a Federal project. The authority
under which the pending Sanford-Titusville report is being prepared is a reso-
lution of the House Committee on Rivers and Harbors adopted 27 January 1937.

Prior studies of Sanford-Titusville Canal

The original report on this waterway was submitted in response to an
item in the River and Harbor Act of 21 January 1927 calling for preliminary
examination and survey of a "channel from Sanford to Indian River near Titus-
ville, to connect St. Johns River with Indian River, Fla. The preliminary
report, submitted on 3 December 1928, was unfavorable to improvement, and
thus no survey report was made.

A resolution of the Senate Committee on Commerce adopted 18 March
1932 directed a review of the 3 December 1928 report. A preliminary report
was made. A survey report was thereby authorized on 19 July 1934 in the
combined interest of navigation and flood control. The District Engineer's
report was dated 10 April 1935. It was favorable, and recommended that a
channel 8 feet deep by 100 feet wide be provided, together with certain appur-
tenances in the interest of flood and water control. Reports of the Division
Engineer (5/8/35), the Board of Engineers (7/15/35), and the Chief of Engineers
(8/13/35) attached to the District Engineer's report, were all unfavorable. The
reports were not printed; no action was taken by Congress.

In House Document 229/63/1 the question of a channel connecting St.
Johns River with Indian River was discussed. The report considered an in-
land waterway from Beaufort, N. C. to Key West. It was favorable to construc-
tion of such a waterway only as far south as the St. Johns River.

In House Document 586/69/2 consideration was given to an Intracoastal
Waterway from Jacksonville to Miami. A route via upper St. Johns River was

f.h '.

considered, but the east coast route was recommended in preference to the
upper St. Johns River route.

The latest report authorization is that of the House Committee on Rivers
and Harbors adopted 27 January 1937, which requested "review the reports on
Channel from Sanford to Indian River, near Titusville, to connect St. Johns
River with Indian River, Fla., and previous reports, with a view to determin-
ing if it is advisable to provide this channel at this time. A review report of
survey scope was made in response to this.resolution, by the District Engineer,
dated 24 April 1939. It was favorable. The Division Engineer's report
(5/5/39) was unfavorable. The reports were reviewed by the Board of En-
gineers and returned to the District Engineer for reconsideration and, possible
revisions in view of more recent information submitted by local interests.
After a second public hearing, held locally, revised unfavorable reports were
submitted by District and Division Engineers (11/25/41 and 12/11/41) respec-
tively. The Board of Engineers deferred action on request of canal proponents
who desired to submit additional data. Due to war conditions, the data was not
submitted. The Board finally returned the report and in view of the elapsed
time recommended revision. This revision was assigned to the District En-
gineer on 26 March 1945.

On 26 November 1952 the District Engineer again submitted a report
on Sanford-Titusville Canal. Meanwhile, the Central andSouthern Florida
Flood Control Project had been authorized. It appeared not to be possible to
properly divide flood control benefits of the upper .St.. Johns portion of the
Central and Southern Florida Flood Control Project and Sanford-Titusville
Canal until detailed final studies for the former were completed. The 26 Novem-
ber 1952 revised report stressed that condition, and clearly stated that flood
control benefits had been omitted. The District Engineer's recommendation
included: "In view of the possibility that prospective flood-control benefits in
combination with navigation benefits would produce a favorable economic ratio,
he further recommends that Sanford-Titusville Canal be further investigated
following definite project report studies for the upper St. Johns River Basin
portion of the comprehensive plan for flood control and other purposes in cen-
tral and southern Florida. Navigation benefits were insufficient for a favor-
able report. The Division Engineer's report concurred in that of the District

The Board of Engineers received considerable objections to the reports
as they had quite admittedly not included flood control benefits for reasons
stated above. Those reports were returned on 28 October 1953 with instruc-
tions for "assessment of the advisability of the construction of this project
in conjunction with units of the comprehensive plan for central and southern
Florida located in the upper St. Johns River and related areas; the evaluation
of all benefits including flood control; and any detriments which could be
reasonably expected to result from the project; and revision of the report to
conform with current policies on project evaluation. "l

_ -- -r,.-..- ---rriJ


Present pending report

No further specific work has been done on the Sanford-Titusville re-
port pending completion of definite project report studies for upper St. Johns
portion of the Central and Southern Florida Flood Control Project. The
latter studies will fully evaluate all flood control and flood control related
benefits which can be attributed to'the Sanford-Titusville Canal. This office
has made every effort to expedite the upper St. Johns River Central and
Southern Florida Flood Control Project studies, including receiving assist-
ance from the Mobile District. Those studies are now estimated for com-
pletion by 31 December 1956. The report on Sanford-Titusville Canal will
then be prepared again using all attributable flood control benefits. Naviga-
tion benefits will also be revised and brought to current status. All other
benefits will be evaluated. Consideration will also be given to increased
traffic which would be attributable to the Sanford-Titusville Canal if the
Cross-Florida Barge Canal should be completed before or concurrently with
the Sanford-Titusville Canal.

while far beyond them now the church has
advanced to the Pacific coast. Not a foot of
railroad was then built or projected for

from our Eastern brethren for nearly six
months ill the year, as neither lakes nor
rivers vre navigable on account of Ice.
There was not a church building in the

E.beop Chase had begun a church school

"A government of the people, for the people and by the people" is the
description of the new form of city government under which th6 destinies
of St. Augustine are to be worked out.
This description was given by Mayor James E. Ingraham at the inaugural
meeting Saturday night.
Never before in the history of this, the oldest city in the United States,
has there ever been enacted, such a scene as that in what was the city coun-
cil chamber last Saturday night. Old methods and manners passed into his-'
tory and strange to say not a single member of the former city government
wai present at the passing.

Before eight o'clock every available chair and seat had been taken while
I rany stood and still more crowded the wide doorway and the outer hall. A
minute or two before the hour set for the inaugural meeting, the three com-
miasioners-elect, James E. Ingraham, Henry W. Davis and Robert P. Kettle;,
accompanied by City Attorney E. Noble Calhoun, entered the chamber and
proceeded to the dais. It was an imposing scene that greeted the commis--
sloners, for grace and dignity were added by the presence of several ladies
who were impelled to come from sheer interest In the city's welfare and to
see how the new government was to be launched. A few palms and plants
gav~ a touch of color to the picture and were not out of place even in leg.s-
lative halls.
Without ceremony, Mr. Ingraham announced that the commissioners had
filed their oath of office and had become duly qualified according to the
provisions of the charter and were now ready to organize. Henry W. Davis
was made temporary chairman, and the election of a mayor was proceeded
with. By unanimous vote, Mr. Ingraham was chosen the first mayor of St.
Augustine under the commission-manager charter. On the announcement of
the election, there was enthusiastic applause. When quiet was restored, the
mayor-elect voiced his appreciation of the honor just conferred. He reminded
his hearers that he was at the head of a people's government and that the
commissioners hoped to make it an efficient instrument for practical service

practically fromni the beginning of his
work to the coimpletion 6'"f his rail-
road tu Key West, and I wish to say
further of this group of men. that
there are no better, cleaner, more
straightforward or capable a body of
men ever aFsociated in a great eq-
terprise than these, and as their -e:

Were inr-pired by their devotion to
Mr. Flagler, and impikiit confidence
.in him, to give hinm ,f their best, and
to stay and do great thing- in a big
way with him. and for.hini. rather
than to stiyke out independently. 'evn
though large fortunes might result
from their individual efforts.
In ISSC Mr. Flagler finished his ho-
tels in St. Augustine. the Ponce de
Leon and the Alcazar. These were
the first of the great tourist hotels
built in Florida. and Mr. Flagler's
example ras eritilated in many, parts
of the state. a- up to that time Florida
had been looked upon as a se-ri-in-
valid re-ort, not a pleasure ground.
but the conitrnuct.i-.n of these houses
started Florida as a playground for
the nation, and railroad construction
and the construction of other laigne
and beautiful hotels f.-ll,",'ed th,- sure-
cess attending'upon Mr. Flagler'. dre-

from New Yorkl to St. AuRustire, in
connection with the Ponce de Leon
hotel, which tremend-.iusly itrength-
ened the jlainim, of Flrida as the
winter playground for-the whule Unit-

mate of Florlla anrd he accessibility
made possible.

ot hotels having been enlarged by the
constriction at Palm Beach of the'
Royal Poinciana and a little later of
the Breakers, and the development of
'the town df West Palm Beach.
TUp io this time the orange industry
had 'been the chief industry of the
state and had been growing year by
.year. Truncking, .general farming,
dairying and stock raising were in
their infancy. The first of the great
ifrees occurred on the 24th of De-
cember, 'I05, very seriously injuring
the orange groves in What was then
known as the orange belt, in the
hortthern and conthal part of Florida,

aster impossible to overcome, for
faith. in Florila and confidence in
its future was rilaterially shaken.
In 19ii6, immediately after rht

road from West Palm Beach to Miami,

Miami, and establishing the t.:,"-n of

C'erlair.l. no one man has been as im-
porttant a factor in putting over the
idea of better live stock in Florida.
Years ago Mr. Ingraham became con-
viric'.l that Florida possessed decided
advani .:tr- for raising improved live
Ftlock H- *knew good live stock and
what it would do for the State, so he
hegar, systematically to advocate the
raising of good live stock in Florida
and ro advertise Florida's advantages
in that direction in the public press
and in the vast amount of advertising
literature for the land holdings that
he represented. At that time there
were few people either in the State or
put, who would believe that it was
adantied to anything aside 'from the


ralstin of citrus fruits and 'truck crops
and entertaining winter tourists. Un-
supported and alone in his belle, Mr.
Ingraham contnned to. insist that dl-
versited farming with live stock In
Florida could not only be made profit-
able to tn. farmer, but that It would
bei:orni an economic necessity in the
near future People did not actually
scoff at lMr Ingraham's ideas, because
he had already made his reputation as
a man of vision. en-.rgy, ability and
good Judgment. but It took an awful
lot of per .sternt hammering on his part
to mak-: an impression. Finally his
opir-i.-n3 and Ideas on the subject be-
gan to take -*,oot and good cattle and
hogs appeared here and there through-
out thi State where they had been un-, before...
Mr Ineranam did not advocate the
impl.i:rti:.n of good stock into Florida
'* rthut preparation on the part of the
iariiore On the contrary, he urged
Il.t:i to be ready to feed their stock.
to grow such pasture, forage, hav and
grain crops sufficient to maintain their
stock and those who are today follow-
ing his advice on this point are known
as successful farmers. He was one of
the first, if not the first, to advocate,
the use of pure bred bulls on the range
to breed up the beef herds. He has
rendered a service to Florida by giving
publicity to improved live stock farm-
ing in the State that has never been
Whatever The Farmer and Stockman
has accomplished in advancing the im-
proved live stock interests of Florida
may be largely credited to J E. Tngra-
ham, who not only gave the present

editor abundant inspiration to which
he added his influence and substantial
co-operation from time to time.
For a quarter of a century past. J. E.
Ingraham has advocated and preached
diversified farming with good live
stock as the most dependable source of
profit for the Florida farmer, and he is
still doing it today. Literally millions
of copies of booklets, pamphlets, leaf-
lets and folders, setting forth the
strongest kind of proof to sustain his
contentions, have been sent by his di-
rection to all parts of the Union. This
constructive- work has brought thou-
sands of good citizens to Florida with
millions of dollars of. capital, all of
which has ..caused several blades of
grass or food bearing plants to grow
in sections of the State where none
grew before.
It must be a source of considerable
satisfaction to Mr. Ingraham to know
that he was right on the question of
live stock farming in Florida twenty
or twenty-five years ago when few
gave his ideas serious thought. The
Farmer and Stockman congratulates
him upon the success that has attend-
ed his efforts as a developer of the
improved live stock industry of a cr.:.r

J. E. Ingiaham, of St. Augustine were
glad to see them in Sanford for a
day's visit with Mr. and Mrs. F. P.
Forster, Mrs. Forster and Mrs. Ingra-
ham being sisters. J. E. Ingraham
.vas one of the pioneers of this city
>nd is fondly remembered by many
)f the old timers as one of the best
looking men in this part of Florida in
the early days. He was general agent
for General Sanford and laid out the
City of Sanford and had a beautiful
.home south of the city w'heie Mr. and
Mrs. B. A. Howard now live. Here
he .had a fine orange grove and all
that heart could desire in the way of
comfort and convenience with fifty
acres of bearing grove-all killed in
the big freeze that made so many rich
men poor over night. Mr. Ingraham

was also president of the old South.
Florida Railway and built the Pio
block and the Pico Hotel for the rail-
way company and many other build-
ings. Mr. Ingraham left here in 1892
to go with the Florida East Coast
railway, being an intimate friend and
asoi ate of the late Henry Flagler.

Florida East Cuast Railway and pres-'

"Mr. In'krahatn passed away peacefully at noon. Pneumonia
had developed." .
This brief telegram to the editor of the Evening record from
the brave widow ~ bf James Edmunson Ingraham, distinguished
citizen of St. Au istiye 4nd the Southland, brought news Satur-
day afternoon, which cast a shadow over the entire community.
All Florida, but; more especially the east coast section of the
State, lost a trtue friend and a tireless laborer for constructive
progress. Thousands whose lives had been touched "by his, were
hooked; and sympathy,for his bereaved loved ones-sympathy
of the kind that comes from the heart-is ascniversal and sin-
eeaf.8s .our sorrow is intense.
Time, in.its mercy, can heal the grief wounds which death
inflicts, but there is comfort in the consciousness that the long,
ever useful life wva. brimming with achievement and success. He
darto pioneer when Florida was largely wilderness; he dreamed
of a "eat and glorious, thriving empire south of the Georgia line.
and he lived to see that dream begin to come true. For half a
century, his life's prime endeavor was for the prosperity and
proper development of Florida. His'vision and courage kept
stimulated the matchless enthusiasm first of Henry B. Plant and
then of Henry M.'Flagler, for he served as right-hand man, accel-
erator and confidential advisor of both. following his notable
works with Henry S. Sanford, the other great railroad builder
and pioneer developer of Florida. all of whom plainly saw in this
State even then the possibilities and potentialities which, as a
result of their efforts, the world sees easily today. Though his
tasks were large and his responsibilities always heavy, J. E. In-
graham's sympathies were broad and his helping hand constantly
extended to those less fortunate than lie, especially when they
had demonstrated a determination to help themselves.
He built and directed the operation of railway systems and had
a prominent part in locating, subdividing and developing twenty-
six towns and cities of Florida, including Sanford, the Palm
Beaches and Miami-the historians and biographers will chronicle
that in detail; but it is more to his splendid character and fine
sensibilities. that we would pay tribute here in an intimate word
of esteem and personal affection. Strong and determined, a
leader fearless and full of force, he was at the same time sweet of
disposition and kiYid of heart-the sort of man that men loved
vifh genuine respect and admiration. A fighter for honest con-
victions, a doer wFi.etI indomitable v ill won him a wide influence
that was felt through the last hour of a constructive life, and
whose example will pro\e .a beacon light to Accomplishment for
the guidanceaand i spiration of future generations, he was withal
as, kiud and gent as a woman, with a never-failing faith in
humpnity pnd the simple tenderness of a,child. In short, he \vwa
one of those few hine characters, developed by each generation,
to stand but high bove.tlie multitude.
If to be loved br one'sdellownian: if to do good deeds-and con-
summat,,great ,,n. rtakings for.posterity, for, his ilopted State
arid. .for society -in-rgeneraf; ff-o live'uprightl3y in the fear of God
arl n brotherly love, if to serve ,well,.and prosper, be eth' measure
'4of. man. then J.J E. Ingraham' did not live in vain, but rather
success was truly his.
."Death is the crown OPlife; .
were death denied, poor man would live in vain;
''' Were death'denied, to live would not be life."

"To die is landing on some silent shore
Where billows never break, nor tempests roar;
Ehe well we feel the friendly stroke-'tis o'er."

"There is no death! The stay's go down
To rise upon some other shore,
And bright in Heaven's jewelei crown *
They shine forevermore."

Use Proposed

For Canal
From Our DeLand Bureau
SANFORD-The use of pleasure
craft was interjected as a prime
argument Into hearings here to-
day on the proposed $10 Tlldlion
Sanford-Titusville Canal.
Heretofore, the project's sup-
porters were permitted to base
their arguments only on the cbm-
mercial value that could be de-
rived from ihe proposed waterway.
At today's packed hearing
the three man Board of Engi-
neers allowed arguments on

added and canal proponents
took full advantage of it.

that opemng of the canal to rec-

As now proposed. the 45 mile
'canal would connect the St. Johns

SThe lone suggestion to change
he existing route was offered by
Harold A. Scott, representing the
executive committee of the Bre-
Vard County Flood Control Com-
haittee. He proposed that the route
connect in the vicinity of Indian

The three man Board of En-

Canal proponents from DeLand
were represented by Earl Brown,
president of the St. Johns-Indian
River Tmprovemer'tf Assr : Phil
Knox and Forrest Breckenridge,
manager of the DeLand C. of C.
Brown urged the building of
the canal and said the use of
recreational boats "would be
great ."
He denied that the association
has any vested interest in the
building of the canal.
"The association is not an or-
ganization that represents any in-
terest or group," Brown said. He
added: "I don't own an inch of
land on the St Johns River."
Brown said' ** think it is the
greatest development in Florida
That can take place under the
Ssun. If we don't get it now we're
; goihg to keep on working until we
Sdo get it."
Knox presented a DeLand C. of
SC. resolution endorsing construc-
tion of the canal. Knox represent-
ed the Lake Beresford Yacht Club
composed of about 200 members
who he said are "enthusiastic over
the project."
He said Ihe canal would
provide a great circle of rec-
reation and owners would be
able to put their boats in at
any point. It would benefit all
the towns along the waterway,
he added.
Breckenndge made three points
'i his presentation to the engi-
neers. He said construction of the
canal would:
-Permit thousands of small
boats to ply up and down the
-Open large up-tream areas
which would create more hunting
and fishing. This wiU "outweigh
the minor disadvantages of killing
the tish and certainJ there is no
reason to believe that this would
-Give an outlet to the ocean in
the event of war or some other
national emergency.
Breckenridge explained that he
has been in close contact for sev-
eral month; with future industrial
interests that he Laid will avail
themselves of the canal almost
every day. He said negotiations are
in the final stage to bring these
industries into the area and an
announcement will be made in the
na r future.
H. C. Gee. of Gee and Jenson
Inc.. West Palm Beach engineer-
ing firnn. submitted two reports to
the engineers.
One was a report of the traffic
analysis on the crossstate bare
canal which revealed that an esti-
mated tonnage of 13 million short
tons would move annually over the
canal following its completion.
The other report was an esti-
mate of tonnage on the proposed
Santdrd-Titusvllle ean a, *dhich
showed that an estimated 620,000
short tons annually would move

It Wasn't Easy?

Herald Real Estate Editor
N R. INGRAH.kA shot a duck on the wing with a rifle, but
that isn't the reason why they named a Miami skyscraper
in his honor.
Mr. Ingraham did a lot of things in days of yore for which
-Miami has been, and should be, duly
il .... appreciative. Mr. Ingraham,. James
S.. Edmundson Ingraham, to be specific,
,. S o s was the sort of man who could clip

I I railroads at a time when that was
about the only kind of roads being
J. E. didn't pop the duck just for
the pleasure of popping ducks; he was
hungry, and so were his 21 company
FERMAN WILSON ions, deep in the fastnesses of the
Everglades sloshing their way to
Miami from Fort Myers.
This was in March of 1892. The trip was completed but
it wasn't easy, like it is today over modern highways.
Tequesta, the journal of the Historical Association of South
Florida, with Charlton W. Tebeau as editor, tells about it.
Dedication soon of "the Everglades National park will
cause the world to learn, if it doesn't already know, that the
Florida Everglades are not mysterious tropical jungles with
king-size snakes hanging from- moss-covered trees.
The 1892 Ingraham exploring expedition was believed at
the time to have been inspired by Henry B. Plant's desire to
build a railroad through the wilderness. The trip cured Henry
of any such intention and it also cured the explorers of
traipsing about the Everglades.

'Excessive Use of Profanity' Forbidden
BEFORE starting the trip, Capt. Newman, in charge of the
group, issued certain-orders, one of which read:
"Excessive use of profane language is forbidden."
Wallace R. Moses, who,, as secretary, kept a record of
the journey, fails to note whether anyone took advantage of
the loophole to use a few strong words, bur it is natural to.
presume that the secretary,hiniself, while drying the-.aaiac
,of his shirt after a -evere tropical shower, let go i'", .
Scott" when his garment caulgt fire.
Some idea of the t,:lliui.z fIr is f:t'ndci fromll tlle-e brief
extracts from the secretary's notes:
"Opinion of some of the population was that we would
shortly return to Fort Myers, failing in our efforts to cross .
the Everglades."
The fourth day out:
"Magnificent bodies of cypress timber extending south-
ward along the line which is known as the Big Cypress,
being virgin timber. The whole gang very tired, footsore
and weary and full rations of mutton tallow and bandages
were served out."
The following day:
"Wesley Boyd concluded he had sufficient of the expedi-
tion and will return to Fort Myers. S. O. Chase and Frank
Hendry on a trip today found several Indian villages, in one
of which were bananas killed, by frost. They saw lemons, and
gua\as of two or thi'ee varieties. One of the men brought in
a wild turkey gobbler of an estimated weight of 18 poundS

SANFORD The Sanford.
Titusville Canal must be built
lif Florida is to continue to
grow industrially.
This was the statement today
of Gnorge Gibbs, Jacksonville,
who has been a proponent of
the canal for more than 30
Gibbs said that waterways
have developed the Gulf area
of the South and that Florida
must have the St. Johns and
Indian Rivers connected if
Florida is to continue to de-
"The great cities of Florida
-Jacksonville, Miami. West
Palm Beach, Key West and
Fort Myers have become
wonderful places to live and
big industrial centers because
they are accessible by water."
Gibbs said.
Col. E. E. Kirkpatrick of the
U. S. Corps of Engineers
opened the hearing on the ca-
nal before a packed room at
Mayfair Inn here this morning.
There was indication that
some North and Central Bre-
vard County interests were on
hand to oppose the canal. Col.
Kirkpatrick said everyone who
wanted to speak would be giv-
en an opportunity to do so.
"The cost of building the St.
Johns-Indian River [Titusville]
canal has been estimated at,the
comparatively trivial sum of
$10 million. Yet it would guar-
antee adequate protection/
against floods and drouths, cu-
freight rates on non-perish3ble
products amounting to millions
of dollars a year and provide
thousands of boaters in Cen-
tral Florida with a quick route
to the Indian River and the
lower East Coast while at the
same time giving the residents
of the Gold Coast a short cut
to the scenic wonderland of the
St. Johns."

This was testimony given the
U. S. Engineers by Rolland
Dean, former owner of the San.
ford Herald and now associate
editor of the Orlando Sentinel.
"Our inland waterways mtist
keep pace with the continued
growth of our state," Dean said.
If they do Canaveral will be-
come the gateway to the world
and Sanford will take its right-
Ful place as the port of Central
Dean told the engineers The
sentinel is firmly behind the
project .
SHe outlined the long years
whichh have been spent in un-
iuccessfully attempting to get
he project built.
"We on The Sentinel are con.
",inced construction of the


nal would ne a tremendous
on to Sanford and the entire
nntral Elaridare.a, and that
e benefits' whic~'F ay be rea-
nably be expected far out-
weigh the costs involved," Dean
"The construction of locks
and spillways in connection
with the canal would provide
an invaluable measure of flood
control for the entire upper St.
Johns valley where thousands
of acres of rich cattle lands are
subjected tq periodic floods
and drouths disastrous to their
economic well being and where
millions of dollars worth of
highways, houses and other
public and private property
have been repeatedly damaged
throughout the years to the
extent of hundreds of thou-
sands of dollars.
"We believe that water trans-
portation between Central Flor
ida and Port Canaveral would
be a tremendous economic as
set for attracting new industry
to this area and for strengthen
ing those already here. The
Orlando Utilities recently con
eluded an agreement to bu3
half its oil supplies through
Port Canaveral at a savings ol
$12.892 a year in hauling costs
from Canaveral compared witi
"With construction of thi
canal Canaveral would become
the distribution center fo
Miami and the entire lowe
East Coast.
"The savings effected by th
Orlando Utilities also would b
available for Florida Powe
& Light, the Florida Powe
Corp., Pinecastle Air Base an
all the other large consumer
of oil in this area."

SDean said, "'We'believe thel
value of pleasure craft in a
pleasure seeking state like
Florida is of enough command-'
nag importance even if there
were no other considerations."
Dean said the Southern Bell
i telephone Co. estimates 150,-
S000 more people will come to
live in the Central Florida area
it serves in the next four years.
S"These people are not com-
ing here in search of superior
cemetery lots, but are looking
for a good place to live. They
are young active people who
enjoy the great out of doors
and are making their homes
where their leisure hours canj
be spent with their growing
families soaking up Florida's

would mean to Central Florida residents
with respect to the high cost of living was
made abundantly clear at thecanal hear-
ing in Sanford Wednesday by GeorgaflQl.-
erGibbs of Jackso nvi1 Aho said that
barge rates are 20 to 50 pet. cheaper than
rail or truck.
He pointed out that during 1955 more
than 41 million tons of cargo were moved
on the Intracoastal Waterway between
Brownsville, Tex., and St. Marks. Fla., at
a saving in freight costs of $83 million.
Petroleum is not the only commodity
which lends itself naturally to barge trans-
portation. Such products as steel, coal,
lumber, aluminum, fertilizer, cement and
other building materials, farm machinery
and many similar supplies can be shipped
advantageously by barge lines.
"Most basic industries cannot survive
unless they are on water courses such as
we seek to provide throughout Florida,'
f said Mr. Gibbs.
s If they do survive, their savings in
h freight rates can be passed on to the ulti-
mate consumer in the form of lower light
