Description

A newspaper clipping from The Miami News on May 24, 1962. Below a photograph of Otto Oscar Zwicker (1899-1992) is an announcement that he has joined the sales staff of Hamilton Realty, Inc.

Born in Wheeling, West Virginia, on April 7, 1899, Zwicker was drafted in the United States Army on November 4, 1918. He was discharged after serving a total of twenty-two days. He moved to Florida with his wife, Helen Mehen, in 1951. He worked in the furniture industry before selling real estate for the remainder of his working career. Zwicker died on October 20, 1992, and was interred at Florida National Cemetery in Bushnell.

In 2017, the University of Central Florida was one of three universities selected to launch the National Cemetery Administration’s Veterans Legacy Program Project. The program engaged a team of scholars to make the life stories of veterans buried in the Florida National Cemetery available to the public. The project engages UCF students in research and writing and fosters collaboration between students, faculty and local Central Florida schools to produce interactive curriculum for k-12 students. The corresponding website exhibit uses RICHES Mosaic Interface to create a digital archive of related data. The public can use the project-developed augmented-reality app at more than 100 gravesites at the Florida National Cemetery, where they can access the UCF student-authored biographies of veterans.
