Florida Collection Dedication

 The Staff of North Florida Community College’s Marshall Hamilton Library invites the public to the dedication of the Library’s Florida Collection in memory of Joseph “Joe” Alexander Akerman, Jr. The dedication ceremony will be held at the NFCC Library (NFCC campus, Bldg. 4) on Sunday, April 21 at 2:30 p.m. A reception will follow.

“In honor of Mr. Akerman’s long career and dedication to NFCC, and in honor of his accomplished writing career, the Library staff is proud to dedicate its Florida Collection in his memory,” said Kay Hogan, Director of Library Services at NFCC.

Akerman began his teaching career at NFCC in 1965 and taught several generations of students before retiring in 2009. He was a dedicated instructor of history and while at the college received numerous awards for his writings. In 1976 the Florida Cattleman’s Association published Akerman’s first book, “A History of the Florida Cattle Industry.” This was followed by “American Brahman” in 1982. In 2003, Akerman and his son Mark collaborated on “Jacob Summerlin, King of the Crackers,” published by the Florida Historical Society. This book won the Florida Historical Society’s prestigious Charlton Tebeau Award for its historical value in 2005. In 2004, Akerman received the Dorothy Dodd Lifetime Achievement Award from the Florida Historical Society. He wrote numerous articles and gave lectures all over Florida on his books and Florida History in general.

Akerman once said that “All American men and boys are cowboys at heart.” Akerman was a professor, author, artist, cowboy and friend to many. The NFCC Library staff invites the community to stop by April 21 and help honor the memory of Joseph Alexander Akerman, Jr.
