Tampa Bay History Center to Receive Collection of Florida Maps

The Tampa Bay History Center opens in December; over the next few years, maps from a private collection of some 2,000 maps of Florida, collected over 25 years by investment firm president J. Thomas Touchton, will be transferred to the Center’s holdings. Last March, the Tampa Tribune ran a piece on Touchton and his maps, the earliest of which dates to 1513. Thanks to Reid for the link.
