1960 - Miami News advertisement with Dr. and Mrs. Berge Markarian and Don Boyd

6025 W. 12th Avenue, Hialeah, Florida

The doctor and his wife had recently moved into their brand new home on the corner of W. 60th Street and W. 12th Avenue and they wrote a letter to The Miami News praising the newspaper and my delivery. The News decided to make an advertisement out of it and it ran several times in the paper.

My family and I were neighbors and friends with the Markarians. The Dr. was a very nice man, Mrs. Markarian had the most wonderful voice I ever heard, she sang beautifully. I talked to David's brother Dan & David is an attorney for FPL but I forgot what Dan is doing. A relative of the Markarians had bought our house on the lake after my dad died. I've recently found Dan through FaceBook

Thanks for your comments, Gene. You've certainly seen your share of firsts in Hialeah and NW Dade. I met your mom a couple of times way back when and I remember her being a Miami News counselor - I believe she had the area north of us, such as the Lake Laurence areas and northward and east to Red Road.

My mother was a branch manager for The Miami News in the late 50's and early 60's. As a newsboy, I was one of the winners of a "start" contest who got a trip to Washington D.C. and New York as the prize. I opened Hialeah High as a 7th grader in 1954, Miami Springs Jr. High in 1955, and Miami Dade Jr. College in 1960. I was student council sponsor at Palm Springs Jr. High when Dr. Markarian's son, David, was it's president and David's cousin, Gina Kavorkian, daughter of dive shop owner Mike Kavorkian, was a home room representative on the council. Finally, I was an English teacher at Hialeah High in 2004 when the school celebrated it's 50th anniversity.
