HISTORY CORNER

Henrietta Cuttino Dozier

Many of the people laid to rest in Evergreen Cemetery are outstanding in their contributions to their field and the City of Jacksonville as a whole. One of whom is Henrietta Dozier (1872-1947), who was one of three women at MIT when she graduated with an architectural degree in 1899. Born in Fernandina Beach, she apprenticed in New York before her formal studies, then worked in Atlanta for 13 years. While in Atlanta, she was commissioned to help with the rebuilding of Jacksonville after the Great Fire, and ultimately moved here in 1914. She worked for the Jacksonville Engineering Department during WWI and then opened her own architectural practice in 1918. Because her gender would hinder her career, she often operated under the gender-neutral names “H.C. Dozier” or “Harry Dozier”. Dozier was the third female member of the American Institute of Architects. She designed churches, schools, government buildings, as well as apartments and houses. Her Jacksonville works include the Federal Reserve building, St. Philip’s Episcopal Church, and the John C. Cooper, Sr. Residence (today’s Cathedral School). She was known for her skill at fishing, and was also an early and accomplished genealogist and aviatrix. She and her family are in historic Section A at Evergreen.

FUNERAL SERVICE ADD-ON

Added Video Option

Evergreen Cemetery, Funeral Home and Crematory will offer recorded video services for families who are planning or have planned a service on our grounds. This service enables family members and friends from all reaches of the world to view the service.

For this option:

  • A team would provide the set up and breakdown of the video recording, from beginning to end.
  • A private clickable link will be emailed to the family we are serving within one hour after the service.
  • The link may be shared at the family’s discretion.
  • The family will also receive a downloaded version for future records.

* The video will stay on the page for one year after the date of the service.

We at Evergreen believe that privacy is of utmost importance. We will ensure that this service will only be made accessibly to the family that we are serving. The link can be shared at the family’s discretion.
