I was wondering if Tom Maxfield is related to Ann and Andrea Maxfield? I knew them in the '60's when my father managed the Whitetower Restaurant at 5 points, and their family was also employed by Whitetower. Just curious, Kathie Knaus

It is Roger V. Flory, who came to Sarasota in 1925. He produced in 1928 the "Sarasota Visitor's Guide." He was a 1917 graduate of Yale Law School, and practiced law in Chicago until moving south in '25. During his administration as Sarasota County Chamber of Commerce president in 1938, the campaign to build and finance Lido Beach Casino was inagurated.
