The State of Florida has recently dedicated the Indian Key Irving R. Eyster Bridge in honor of the late archaeologist and historian.  The bridge is part of the U.S. # 1 Over Seas Highway and located at Islamorada in the Florida Keys. Irving Eyster’s generosity with both commentary and permission to film his collection of artifacts found near the Perrine house site added much to the documentary The Life & Times of Dr. Henry Perrine.

 I watched your film. You did an excellent job with mostly archival material and the people you interview. It’s a challenge to visually demonstrate agricultural decision making, state decrees about land, etc. You took vast issues and made them more human scale.

I also liked the interesting way you used the model of the house in a seamless conjunction with the real Keys landscape.
