  • Marjory Stoneman Douglas (7 de abril de 1890 –14 de mayo de 1998) fue una columnista estadounidense, escritora, feminista y ecologista, conocida por su defensa de los Everglades contra los esfuerzos para drenarlo y recuperar tierras para el desarrollo. Se mudó a Miami cuando era joven para trabajar para "The Miami Herald", Douglas se convirtió en una escritora independiente, produciendo más de un centenar de cuentos cortos que fueron publicados en revistas populares. Su obra más influyente fue el libro "Everglades: Río de hierba" (1947), que redefine el concepto popular de los Everglades como un río atesorado en lugar de un pantano sin valor; su impacto ha sido comparado con el del influyente libro de Rachel Carson llamado Primavera Silenciosa (1962). Su carrera periodística, historias y libros le dieron influencia en Miami, la cual usó para promover sus causas.Inclusive como una mujer joven, Douglas era abiertamente y políticamente consciente de muchos temas que incluyeron el sufragio femenino y los derechos civiles. Fue llamada para ocupar un lugar central en la protección de los Everglades cuando tenía 79 años. Para los restantes 29 años de su vida, era "una periodista implacable y líder en las cruzadas sin miedo" para la preservación y la restauración de la naturaleza del sur de la Florida. Sus esfuerzos incansables le dieron el apodo (con algunas variantes) de "La gran dama de los Everglades" así como la hostilidad de los intereses agrícolas y empresariales que buscan beneficiarse del desarrollo de tierra en Florida. Se hizo merecedora de numerosos premios, incluyendo la Medalla Presidencial de la Libertad, y fue colocada en varios salones de la fama.Douglas vivió hasta la edad de 108 años, trabajando hasta casi el final de su vida para la restauración de los Everglades. A su muerte, un obituario en "The Independent" en Londres decía: "en la historia del movimiento ambientalista estadounidense, ha habido pocas figuras tan notables como Marjory Stoneman Douglas."

Mudou-se ainda jovem para Miami para trabalhar no The Miami Herald, e tornou-se uma escritora freelance, tendo produzido mais de uma centena de contos que foram publicados em revistas. Seu maior trabalho, no entanto, foi o livro The Everglades: River of Grass, publicado em 1947, que redefiniu a concepção popular dos Everglades como um rio precioso ao invés de um pântano inútil. O impacto desta obra pode ser comparado com o do livro Silent Spring, de 1962. Seus livros, contos e sua carreira jornalística lhe trouxe influência em Miami, que ela usou para que suas causas avançassem.Mesmo quando era jovem, Marjory era uma sincera e politicamente consciente defensora de muitas questões controversas à época, entre elas o sufrágio feminino e os direitos civis. Ela foi convidada a assumir o papel central na protecção dos Everglades, quando tinha 79 anos, e pelos 29 anos seguintes de sua vida, foi "uma implacável repórter e destemida guerreira" pela preservação da e restauração da natureza do Sul da Flórida. Pelos seus incansáveis esforços ela ganhou a alcunha de "Grande Dama dos Everglades" bem como a hostilidade de produtores e empresas agrícolas que procuravam beneficiar-se do desenvolvimento na terras na Flórida. Muitos prémios lhe foram outorgados, incluindo a Medalha Presidencial da Liberdade e várias inclusões em halls da fama.Marjory Douglas viveu até os 108 anos, e trabalho até quase o final da sua vida pela restauração dos Everglades. Após sua morte, um obituário no jornal The Independent de Londres declarou: "Na história dos movimentos ambientais americanos, não há muitas figuras mais notáveis do que Marjory Stoneman Douglas."

Her books, stories, and journalism career brought her influence in Miami, which she used to advance her causes.Even as a young woman Douglas was outspoken and politically conscious of many issues that included women's suffrage and civil rights. She was called upon to take a central role in the protection of the Everglades when she was 79 years old. For the remaining 29 years of her life she was "a relentless reporter and fearless crusader" for the natural preservation and restoration of the nature of South Florida. Her tireless efforts earned her several variations of the nickname "Grande Dame of the Everglades" as well as the hostility of agricultural and business interests looking to benefit from land development in Florida. Numerous awards were given to her, including the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and she was inducted into several halls of fame.Douglas lived until age 108, working until nearly the end of her life for Everglades restoration. Upon her death, an obituary in The Independent in London stated, "In the history of the American environmental movement, there have been few more remarkable figures than Marjory Stoneman Douglas."
  • Marjory Stoneman Douglas (Minneapolis, 7 april 1890 - Coconut Grove, 14 mei 1998) was een Amerikaans journaliste, schrijfster, feministe en milieuactiviste. Na een opleiding aan Wellesley College, verhuisde Douglas als jonge vrouw naar Miami (Florida), waar ze aan de slag ging als schrijver voor The Miami Herald, maar ook als schrijver van populaire kortverhalen. In 1947 verscheen haar non-fictieboek The Everglades: River of Grass, waarin ze een lans brak voor de Everglades, een natuurgebied dat door velen gezien werd als een waardeloos moeras. De impact van dat boek is vaak vergeleken met die van Rachel Carsons Silent Spring (1962). Haar voortdurende activisme, tot in haar laatste levensjaren, leverde Douglas de bijnaam Grande Dame of the Everglades op. Ze won verschillende prijzen, waaronder de Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1993. Douglas stierf op 108-jarige leeftijd.
