Who am I?

Cateogry: History Quiz
Posted by: Editor on Wednesday, May 18, 2016

Submit Answers in Comments (below). Answers will not be revealed until a winner is selected.

I was well-known guy in Sarasota, though there was a few of us that shared the same last name. If I give you too many more hints, you might feel faint and need some smelling salts – hmmm… let’s see if there are any on the shelf.


Your award this week is the book, John Hamilton Gillespie - The Scot Who Saved Sarasota by Jeff LaHurd. The Friend's of the Sarasota County History Center generously provided this prize. Please consider becoming a member of the Friends; they have some exciting programs coming up soon. Visit them here.

If you would like to be a sponsor of our "Where Am I?" quiz, please call us at (941) 951-7727. It only cost $25 per week for us to set up your ad, and then you only have to provide a prize for the winner. What could be easier?

Winner: Rusty Glendinning, Answer: Francis Walpole
