Brad Bertelli: Henry Perrine and Indian Key

MPNOD - Sat, Jan 14 - Brad Bertelli: Henry Perrine and Indian Key
The Miami Pioneers and Natives of Dade historical society presents historian Brad Bertelli and his program on The Henry Perrine and Indian Key Connection at the Pinecrest Library at 2pm on Saturday, January 14.

Join Brad at the Pinecrest Library or online as he explores the life of Dr. Henry Perrine and his connection to Indian Key. Dr. Perrine sought to live in warmer climates after being accidentally poisoned by arsenic. The event altered his life trajectory, leading him to abandon the medical profession and pursue a career in horticulture. It also introduced him to Indian Key, where his life tragically ended during the second escalation of the Seminole War on August 7, 1840.

Brad Bertelli, a native of Southern California, moved to Florida in 1989 and into the Florida Keys in 2001. Today, he is an Honorary Conch, Florida Keys historian, speaker, and writer.

Sallye Jude
We are sad to announce the passing of long-time Miami Pioneers and Natives of Dade member Sallye Jude of Coral Gables.

Sally participated in a wonderful historic program for our group recently about Java Head, her historic home on the Coral Gables waterway, which was originally built by legendary bonvivants Charles H. Baker and wife Pauline Elizabeth Paulsen.
Sallye was a champion of local history causes, a magnanimous donor, and an active participant in many civic organizations which strive to preserve the environment and celebrate local history in South Florida. She hosted many fine events at her magnificent home to benefit her favorite non-profit groups.

Sallye died at the age of 96 on Friday, December 23, 2022.

Sallye is survived by her seven children, Roderick, John, Cecilia Prahl (Bill), Victoria Steele (Bob), Peter (Maria), Bob (Sheri), and Chris; her twelve grandchildren, Joseph (Tania), Jennifer, Tina (Greg), James, Tom (Jamie), Will , Michael (Alison), Peter John, Annemarie, Sarah, Samantha and Nicholas; and six great grandchildren, Morgan, Andrew, Haddie, Luke, Walker, and Madison.

Sallye was born on May 27, 1926 in Baltimore, Maryland. She graduated from the Universitiy of Maryland with a Bachelors degree in Economics and received a Masters in Elementary Education from the University of Minnesota. She was a member of the Kappa Delta sorority. It was at the University of Minnesota that she met her husband of 64 years. They married in 1952.

The family will greet friends on Friday, January 6, 2023 at Stanfill Funeral Homes, 10545 S. Dixie Hwy in Pinecrest.
