Great Floridians 2000

Henry L. Twine

(1923 - 1994)

Henry Twine, a lifelong Floridian, spent his adult life working for the betterment of the African-American community in St. Augustine. He was president of the local NAACP chapter for ten years during the 1960’s Civil Rights movement. In addition, he was a committee member for the Democratic Party’s Executive Committee. He earned the respect of citizens and politicians, both black and white, in his efforts to upgrade his neighborhood and city.

During his three terms on the City Commission, he gained a reputation as a consensus builder and a conciliator. "His quiet, unassuming manner went far during his service on the City Commission. When some commissioners would ramble on and on, giving those in attendance the impression they were truly in love with their own voices, Twine could cut through the hyperbole and bring attention back to the issue with a simple statement." He was the city’s first African-American vice mayor, serving two terms in that capacity.
