Dr. Gary Mormino is the scholar in residence at the Florida Humanities Council and professor emeritus of history at the University of South Florida, St. Petersburg. “Floridians at Work: A History through Images & Words” explores the myriad ways and customs of working Floridians. From perhaps the worst job in modern Florida (the charcoal burner working on one of the Florida Keys) to arguably the best job (a read in the Tampa cigar factories), Mormino will explore the way Floridians work.
