GEORGINE MICKLER
Mickler Filled Her Home With Florida History A noted collector and seller of Florida history books and memorabilia, Georgine Mickler, a former Harrodsburg resident, died Monday, February 2, 1998 of cancer in Atlanta. She was 84. Georgine J. Mickler's passion for books and Florida not only filled her life, but also her home and business. "She loved it all about Florida. She was overwhelmed with the state's history," said Melinda Griffith, a friend. For almost four decades, Mickler and her husband, Thomas, operated a small publishing company and a thriving mail-order business from their old Chuluota home, which they called Florida Breezes. Thomas Mickler died last March. "She was a very bright woman. There was not one subject this woman could not discuss intelligently," said Fran Freeman, a friend. When the Micklers started a small book collection in the 1960s, they found a growing interest for books on Florida history and discovered a market in schools and universities. It led them to form the Mickler House, which published 19 books, and Mickler's Antiquarian Books, a mail-order business that focuses on tracing out-of-print books about Florida. Their collection eventually grew to more than 40,000 out-of-print books, maps and pieces of memorabilia that filled every room of their historic home -- built by Henry Flagler's Florida East Coast Railroad in 1913. "The whole house just reeks with Florida history and information, " said Griffith, who helped operate the couple's business. The only room that didn't have books was the bathroom. "That's the very room there ought to be books," Mickler told a Sentinel reporter in 1988. Her family has not yet decided what to do with Mickler's immense collection, Griffith said. They may donate the books to a library or convert the home into a museum. Each month, the couple hosted tours for librarians, historians and professors to browse through the collections. U. S. Sen. Bob Graham and his wife, Adele, dropped by for a visit and a tour last year, Griffith said. A Chicago native, Mickler graduated from Harrodsburg High School and Transylvania University. Before moving to Orlando in 1961, she worked as a photographer -- which included a job photographing a young Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis at her graduation from Vassar College in New York. After being diagnosed with cancer last year, she went to Atlanta to receive treatment. Mickler is survived by nine nieces and nephews. A Memorial mass was held Saturday, February 7, at St. Joseph Catholic Church, State Road 50 at Alafaya Trail. -- The Orlando Sentinel.
