Florida Matters: Remembering Sam Gibbons

He’s been called the father of USF. Former Congressman Sam Gibbons died earlier this year. We take a look back at his last public appearance, a celebration of his life and achievements.

Gibbons left fingerprints all over the Tampa area, from the high-rise federal courthouse that bears his name in downtown Tampa to the nation's eighth-largest public university, which he conceived and guided through the Legislature in the 1950s.
