Could The New York Times have gotten it wrong?

When HSOSC President Howard Rosenthal called our attention to Alfred Bidwell’s  obituary in The New York Times, we were thrilled to add it to our collection.

Alfred Bidwell built what we know call the Bidwell-Wood House in 1882. He was a local merchant, and the house, in 1882, was considered a fine home by the Tampa newspaper.

But could The New York Times have erred? Long-time HSOSC member Ed Orr, a studious history buff, thinks so. Ask Ed about it, next time you see him (he’s the one with all the collectible cars!)Alfred Bidwell's obituary
