Leech taught at the Ringling School of Art from 1931-36 and again from 1939-1945. After the war he opened his own school in Sarasota, the Amagansett Art School at 1666 Hillview Street. The Hilton Leech house was later added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1995.
Joseph Janney Steinmetz was a world-renowned commercial photographer whose images appeared in such publications as the Saturday Evening Post, Life, Look, Time, Holiday, Collier's, and Town & Country. His work has been referred to as "an American social history," which documented diverse scenes of American life from affluent northeasterners to middle-class Floridians. Steinmetz moved from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Sarasota, Florida in 1941.
