General Note

  • Dog Island is off the mainland from Carrabelle in the Gulf of Mexico. The island and its two neighbors were discovered by the French in 1536. During World War II, Dog Island was part of Camp Gordon Johnston. After the war Jeff Lewis, a Florida businessman, saw its potential as a vacation area and paid $12,000 for the island. In 1981 he ensured the island's future by selling, at less than market value, nearly two-thirds of the island to the Nature Conservancy, which now (2010) protects it as the Jeff Lewis Wilderness Preserve.
  • Note the Volkswagen van at the right.
  • Richard Parks operated a portrait studio in Tallahassee from 1962 to 1974. First called Richard Parks-Evon Streetman Photography, the studio was later renamed Richard Parks Photography after Streetman moved to Gainesville about 1965.
