for years. The 1947 floods and the droughts of the early 1970s triggered
governmental and civic action. Journalist, banker and civic activist Jean
Bellamy, was involved in much of this. In the 1930s she came to Miami
and worked as an investigative journalist for the Miami Tribune. In 1937
it was bought out by the Miami Herald, who kept her on the staff and assigned
her to environmental and government matters. She served on a number of
boards and committees, including the Citizens Committee on Water Control,
the Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Authority, and the Central and Southern
Florida Flood Control District.
