[ARCHIVED] City Commission Commends Tom Hambright

City Seal

The Key West City Commission honored a true Keys treasure during the March 1 meeting, commending County Historian Tom Hambright for his dedicated service to the community and the culture of the Keys.  Hambright is retiring after 36 years of service.

Based in the Key West Branch of the Monroe County Library, Hambright has coalesced a collection of Keys documents and photos that will help future generations understand the complex history of the Keys.

Known locally as the man who can answer absolutely any question about Keys history, Hambright's knowledge is a legend beyond the Keys.  He has worked with scholars, students, historians, and producers nationwide to help shed light on our unique history.
