Centennial anniversary of founding of Baha’i faith in North Florida

In observing the centennial of the Baha’i Faith in Northeast Florida, a group of St. Johns County Baha’is visited the gravesites of two early St. Augustine Baha’i’s at Woodlawn Cemetery.

The graves were those of Dr. Nathan Collier, president of the Florida Normal and Industrial Institute, who died in 1941, and Miss Sarah Ann Blocker, dean of women at the institute, who died in 1944. Originally, both Collier and Blocker were interred on school property, but were moved to Woodlawn Cemetery in St. Augustine when the school relocated to Miami Gardens in the late 1960s. The school is now known as Florida Memorial University. The university improved the gravesites in 2015.
