Fabrice Chouraqui arrived in Miami to take over as head of Novartis' medications businesses in Latin America, the Caribbean and Canada.

Julie Eisenhower visits Big Cypress Swamp, 1972
President Nixon's daughter, Julie Eisenhower, and Secretary of the Interior Rogers C.B. Morton waded knee-deep into the Big Cypress Swamp for a first-hand look at the moss-draped wilderness that the president hoped to preserve. Julie, who gamely slogged her way through the swamp, promised that her personal report on the expedition would include advice to "wear boots if he ever comes here himself." Federal purchase would create the Big Cypress National Fresh Water Reserve covering parts of three counties. Assistant Secretary of the Interior Nathaniel P. Reed, a Floridian, accompanied the pair on an airboat ride. Reed hopped out to pick a white-pedaled spider lilly for the President's daughter.

The Ainsley Building, Miami's first office building under glass
Miami's landmark Ainsley Building at 14 NE First Avenue was super modern looking when new in the 1950s. Glass walled office buildings are common now, but the wrap-around sun shades on the south side of the Ainsley Building keep it from looking like just another glass box. In the 1950s Miami Herald photographer Bob East designed a radio-controlled unit that enabled photographers to light up Flagler Street during the annual Orange Bowl parade. East attached Ascor strobe lights to the eighth floor of the Ainsley Building.
