    George Merrick BookCORAL GABLES, Fla. (January 5, 2015) – As the University kicks off its 90th anniversary celebrations in 2016, Miami historian and UM Trustee Arva Moore Parks is sharing her recent insights on the institution’s founding and early history.

    Parks will present her latest book, George Merrick, Son of the South Wind, on Thursday, January 14 at the Otto G. Richter Library. The book, released last October, is the story of the visionary creator of Coral Gables who founded the University of Miami.

    Parks’ presentation coincides with the official opening of “The Pan American University: The Original Spirit of the U Lives On,” an exhibition of archival materials—including photographs, publications, and other documents from UM Libraries’ unique and distinctive collections—that highlight UM’s enduring connection to Latin America and the Caribbean.

    The January 14 presentation will begin at 6 p.m., followed by a reception, book signing, and exhibition viewing. For more information and to RSVP, please contact [email protected] or call 305-284-4026.
