ABSTRACT
The article talks about Frederick H. Bair, Jr. He wrote the first in a long series of publications, a manual on parking problems. He started his own consulting firm, Bair Abernathy and Associates in 1953 where he was already known as a zoning expert. He was a member of the American Planning Association board of directors and member of the board of the Americans Society of Planning Officials. The Miami-Dade County Department of Planning and Zoning executive Joseph Mcmanus described Bair as a pioneer in planning theory. Zoning for mobile and manufactured homes, recreational equipment storage, trailer and truck rentals, signage, land -use intensity system and other issues were based on Bair's writings.
