Lewis S. "Mike" Eidson
Mike Eidson always fascinated me. How could anyone find the time for such diverse accomplishments?
A brilliant trial lawyer, President of the Miami City Ballet Trustees, and Chairman of the Miami Adrienne Arsht Performing Arts Center, he extended extraordinary hospitality to AAJ attendees at private performances of ballet, classical music and jazz of the highest quality.
In 2015 he received the distinguished Florida Justice Association Excalibur Award and I met him briefly in Montreal and discussed his portrait.
Pictured one steamy Miami night, purple sky, in evening dress before the AA Performing Arts Centre. Cultured, urbane, truly unique.
