Abstract:

Gulf Coast Breeze [LCCN: sn95047266] was published in Crawfordville, Florida from 1897 through, it is believed, 1928. The newspaper's first editor/publisher was R. Don McLeod. Later editors were Herbert S. Moore (ca. 1915) and C.K. Allen (ca. 1920). As was typical of most Florida newspapers in this period, it maintained a Democratic affiliation. The Gulf Coast Breeze served Wakulla County and its environs. Crawfordville's population during this period hovered at 200 souls; the county grew from 3,000 to 7,000 during the paper's existence. The paper's masthead proclaimed "For the People." Crawfordville was and remains (ca. 2008) the seat of county government in Wakulla County (FL). It continues (ca. 2008) to bear the distinction as Florida's only unincorporated seat of county government. Wakulla County is approximately 20 miles south of the state's capital, Tallahassee. It remained overwhelmingly rural until only recently, in the last quarter of the 20th century. Even today, while densely populated, it remains largely lacking urban centers. An examination of the first issue reveals a rousing smorgasbord of local and international news. Local news covered the everyday and the curious. Among the curious: the taking of a prodigiously large gopher turtle at more than fifty pounds, and, a local minister's wife almost crushed a la Anna Karenina by a local train. International news, as well, covered the ordinary and occasionally the extra-ordinary, e.g., a jingoist editorial inveighing against the Muslim Turks (i.e., the Ottoman Empire) during and following World War I. The Ottoman Empire had been particularly chaotic during the latter life of the Gulf Coast Breeze.--E. Kesse, University of Florida Digital Library Center.
