Who am I?

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

I have a well-known street named after me, and my Mom and brother and I affected Sarasota in many ways throughout our time here in the early 1900s. Who am I?


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.
