Collection Historical Note

Cecil Farris Bryant was born on July 26, 1914, in Marion County, Florida. He recieved his business degree from the University of Florida in 1935 and a law degree from Harvard University in 1938. He served in the navy from 1942-1945. After serving five terms in the Florida House of Representatives from Marion County, he lost the Democratic nomination for Governor to LeRoy Collins in 1956. However, he went on to defeat Republican George Peterson for Governor in 1960.

As thirty-fourth Govenor, Bryant worked to improve funding for higher education, began construction of the Cross Florida Barge Canal, reorganizaed the State Road Department, and completed work on the Sunshine State Parkway. While he supported segregation, he did not prevent voluntary integration. During his administration in 1964, there was some civil rights unrest and racial violence in Saint Augustine, however, a major crisis was averted. He emphasized tourism and worked to attract new businesses to Florida.

After retiring as Governor in 1965, Bryant returned to Jacksonville to become Chairman of the Board of National Life of Florida Corporation and Voyager Life Insurance Company. President Lyndon B. Johnson appointed him Director of the Office of Emergency Planning and a member of the United States Advisory Commision on Intergovernmental Relations in 1966.

Bryant passed away at the age of 87 on March 1, 2002 in Jacksonville, Florida after suffering a stroke.
