In 1989, as a gift to the retiring Florida Park Service Director Ney Landrum, each park and office was asked to provide a photo of their staff. These photos were assembled into an album and presented to Mr. Landrum as a retirement gift. Mr. Landrum's son, Bruce Landrum, attended the 2021 Annual Gathering and brought the album for all attendees to see and reminisce. Bruce Landrum has kindly loaned us the album so that we can digitize and archive the images. 

This album provides a snapshot of the Florida Park Service staff at that moment in time. Most of the photos were not labeled with names, so we need your help. Click on the album of your choice and let us know who you recognize. We appreciate your help with this historical memory project. 

We are working to get all the photos from each park on this site, which is a work in progress. However, not every park, office, or staff employed in 1989 is represented.
