Gulf Power Company Ashtray

Attorney James E. (Jim) Moore was an author and character actor who appeared at many local functions. The ashtray pictured was given to him on November 21, 1963, in appreciation for his presentation before Gulf Power Company’s Management Club. To open his talk, Jim related a humorous story he heard Lyndon Johnson tell at the University of Florida. The next morning, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated, and Vice President Johnson was sworn in as President of the United States.
