- Mr. Eberling utilized the SPOHP collection to garner research for his current project, entitled “Come on Down! The Selling of the Florida Dream 1945-1965."
- Eberling’s larger work examines the intersection of politics, growth, race and media in postwar Florida.
- Dr. White, a professor of history at FAU, used the SPOHP collection to examine the integration of sports in the SEC, and at the University of Florida.
- That research is part of his newest article, “From Desegregation to Integration: Race, Football, and ‘Dixie’ at the University of Florida,” published in the Florida Historical Quarterly, Spring 2010 issue
