The self-interests of cattlemen, merchants, railroad men, industrialists and inventors gave birth to Fort Myers, but the Fort Myers of today is also the legacy of civic-minded and philanthropic women. Meet these remarkable and unpredictable women in this 90-minute mix of comedy and heroine-ism.


Barbara B. Mann









Dr. Ella Mae Piper
