The Fitzgerald & Kanner Trust for Historic Maps was established to endow the Miami International Map Fair, to support the growth of the museum’s map collection, and to foster an appreciation of historic maps through exhibitions, publications and educational programming.

In 1990, to honor his service to the Historical Museum and his interest in maps, an anonymous donor established the Joseph H. Fitzgerald Trust for Historic Maps as a part of the museum’s endowment. The Trust has grown through donations of generous friends and map enthusiasts.

The Trust recognizes the two individuals most responsible for the continued success of the Map Fair. The collaboration between Founder and Chairman, Joe Fitzgerald and Map Fair Manager, Marcia Kanner, both former Historical Museum board chairs, has helped the Map Fair become a premier event in the world of maps and a signature event for the museum. Beyond their personal commitment they have made past gifts and pledged future gifts to support the Trust. In so doing it is their hope that the Miami International Map Fair will continue in perpetuity.

To make a contribution to the Trust , call Map Fair Manager Marcia Kanner at 305.375.1492 or e-mail [email protected]
