 Collection — Box: 1
Identifier: M2012-06

Scope and Contents

The report covers 13 parcels: Parcel "A" -- B. A. Murphy; Parcel "B" -- William. J. Overman; Parcel "C" -- Mildred Tart Rood; Parcel "D" -- O. D. Bonner; Parcel "E" -- Robert B. Hughes; Parcel "F" -- J. J. Blanton; Parcel "G" -- B. A. Murphy; Parcel "H" -- J. J. Blanton; Parcel "I" -- Leon B. and Carl Jones; Parcel "K" -- Leon B. Jones; Parcel "L" -- G. C.

  &nnsp; In 2011, Brom Nichol, UWF's first campus planner and physical plant director, long-retired, donated this Appraisal of the University of West Florida site. In cataloging, Archives staff located a second copy within the 1968 Archives collection. In comparing both of these reports for scannilng, each was missing some pages and photographs that the other had, so the digital file is more complete.

  &nnsp; For Parcel "D" there is no page number 7. For Parcel "N" page 9 was different in both reports as were several pages in Parcel "O" -- we have included both pages in the scans.
