Beatrice A. (Bea) Brickell

Cindy Seip

Beatrice A. (Bea) Brickell, an attorney who practiced international law in Washington, D.C., is the great-granddaughter of South Florida pioneers Mary and William Brickell. Her young years in Miami were filled with bay breezes, palm shadows, and visits to her grandmother’s home just a few feet from the epicenter of where her great-grandparents helped to birth a city. She is also the steward of critical family documents and artifacts that have been key in telling Mary Brickell’s story.
