Reeves and daughter

Garth Reeves, then 80, (100 years*) (November 26, 2019) (and daughter Rachel Reeves, then 40, (69 years*) (September 12, 2019). Pictured here Rachel was The Miami Times’ publisher in this 1999 photo, seven years after assuming the title her father and grandfather had held at the paper, which has documented South Florida’s black community since its founding in 1923. When Garth Sr. announced his retirement in 1992 and made it official in 1994, he didn’t see his daughter as The Miami Times publisher. He had groomed his son, her brother Garth Jr., for that role. But in 1982, Garth Jr. died at 30 of colon cancer. Garth Sr. stayed on to run The Miami Times and when he envisioned retirement, he figured on selling the paper, according to an article in the Miami Herald.
