  • Marjory Stoneman Douglas (April 7, 1890 – May 14, 1998) was an American journalist, writer, feminist, and environmentalist known for her staunch defense of the Everglades against efforts to drain it and reclaim land for development. Moving to Miami as a young woman to work for The Miami Herald, Douglas became a freelance writer, producing over a hundred short stories that were published in popular magazines. Her most influential work was the book The Everglades: River of Grass (1947), which redefined the popular conception of the Everglades as a treasured river instead of a worthless swamp; its impact has been compared to that of Rachel Carson's influential book Silent Spring (1962). 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 foi uma jornalista, escritora, feminista e ambientalista estadunidense, conhecida por sua firme defesa dos Everglades da Flórida contra a drenagem e o desenvolvimento. 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."
