Letter from Kaye to Louise Webber Regarding the Great Miami Hurricane, 1926
- This letter describes hurricanes that hit southeastern Florida on September 18 and October 21, 1926. Letter written by "Kaye" from the Floridian Hotel in Miami Beach to Louise Webber (d. 1993) of Bangor, Maine, detailing Kaye's activities both during and in the aftermath of the storms. She begins with remarks on the October 21 storm, before plunging into the events of September 18 and the days that followed. It is known from the letter that Kaye was a resident and employee of The Floridian Hotel. However, her exploits detail conditions beyond the Floridian, such as her walk across the causeway and in Hollywood, where she searched for "her folks."
