On Thursday, May 12, West Palm Beach partner Harvey E. Oyer III will be the featured speaker for the Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge Speaker Series. His lecture is titled “South Florida’s History Through the Eyes of the Earliest Pioneer Family."
Harvey, an accomplished historian and writer, is a fifth generation Floridian from one of the pioneering families of South Florida. Many of his stories provide a view of the early environmental history of the state. One of Harvey’s books, the best-selling and award-winning “The Last Egret,” chronicles the tragic plume-hunting episode in American history, which largely took place in the Florida Everglades during the late 19th Century.
