in an article published by the New York Times, with some sort of fancy cover art that newspapers nowadays just aren't doing, George Merrick discusses the growth and spirit of Miami in an interview that sounds surprisingly like the discourse still going on about Miami today. It's about changing the conversation about misrepresentation of Miami and "do justice to Miami and to give Florida its proper place before the serious-minded readers of this country." 

You'll want to read this piece of very insightful 1925 conversation about Miami with a young George Merrick, who at younger than forty sounds like he has everything all figured out.
