Lorena Hardin Robson, Donald Downie & Marlyn Kemper

This is a history of Pompano Beach from it's earliest times, in three parts

The first section was written by Lorena Hardin Robson. A proud member of a pioneer family, Mrs. Robson wrote this history in 1974 based on a variety of sources.

The second section is the work of Donald Downie, a resident since 1939. He has collected a variety of stories about Pompano's past - its pioneers and its way of life when it was still a small farming town.

The third section, "Pompano in Perspective", was written by Marlyn Kemper, who was the director of the Historic Preservation Board of Broward County. This historical look at Pompano Beach was published in the Pompano Beach Diamond Jubilee Commemorative Book, celebrating the city's 75th anniversary of incorporation (1908 - 1983).

This book was published for the Historical Society by and dedicated to the "Beanpickers", who are the members of the graduating classes of Pompano High School from 1928 - 1957.
