Description

A newspaper column in The Oviedo Outlook entitled "Between the Celery Stalks." Here, local residents could submit interesting stories or tidbits for inclusion in the newspaper. This particular column, written by Janet Foley, was about horticulturalist local Oviedoan, Theodore "Teddy" Luqueer Mead and his housing development called Mead Manor. Originally from New York, Mead's long interest in biology and botany brought him to Florida during the late 19th century, when he settled first in Eustis, then later Oviedo on Lake Charm, with the intent of growing oranges. Mead and his wife would become integral members of the social fabtic of the Oveido community.
