Professor Seth Bramson on Miami Beach

On the first Sunday in November, Professor Seth H. Bramson returns with another interesting program on South Florida History for our members in attendance.

On June 11 the Miami Beach City Commission officially named him City Historian and contracted with him to write the city’s Centennial history. His talk on November 2nd will be on the incredible history of Miami Beach.

The author of 22 books on south Florida local and Florida transportation history, he is America’s single most published Florida history book author.

In addition, he has written more than 200 articles, five of which have appeared in refereed or juried publications.

Seth is America’s senior collector of Florida East Coast Railway, Florida transportation memorabilia, Miami memorabilia and Floridiana in America and his FEC Railway and Florida transportation memorabilia collections are the largest in the world: they are larger than the state museum’s collection and larger than the Flagler Museum’s collection.

The founder and current president of the Miami Memorabilia Collectors Club, his collections of Miami memorabilia and Floridiana are the largest in private hands in the country.
