Description

The commemorative key to Orlando, Florida, that was presented to Mayor Bob Carr (1899-1967). Robert Spencer Carr served as mayor of Orlando from 1956 to 1967. In 1945, when Carr was president of the Greater Orlando Chamber of Commerce, he helped establish the Orlando Negro Chamber of Commerce. Carr also helped establish the Florida's Easter Seals Organization, a charity group dedicated to proving opportunities to adults and children with physical disabilities. His term as mayor was marked by positive race relations. Mayor Carr established the Human Relations Committee as part of his effort to desegregate the city, in which he was successful. The Bob Carr Theater was named in his honor when the existing facility was modernized from 1975 to 1977.
