General Note

  • Jeanne Bellamy has lived in Florida since 1917. She was graduated from Rollins College in 1933, and moved to Miami in 1934. She was a staff writer of the Miami Herald from December, 1937, to December, 1973. She retired to become chairman of the board of the Sun Bank of Midtown, Miami, where she had been a director since 1968. This role led to a directorship of the parent Sun Bank of Miami from 1977 to 1982.
  • In 1948-49, Miss Bellamy was a member of the Citzens Committee on Water Control which wrote recommendations accepted by the Legislature for implementing the $208,000,000 Central and Southern Florida Flood Control project. She also helped marshal public opinion for the creation of the Everglades National Park. In 1984, the Fairchild Tropical Garden awarded her its Thomas Barbour Medal for Conservation. On the occasion of the award, she was cited as having been among the first "to recognize that the wise management of Florida's fresh water resources was the key to the orderly development of the State." Away from her writing desk, Miss Bellamy is Mrs. John T. Bills.
