Only two quotes by Addison Mizner

Addison Cairns Mizner (December 12, 1872 - February 5, 1933) was an American resort architect whose Mediterranean Revival style left an indelible stamp on South Florida, where it continues to inspire architects and developers. Mizner was the visionary behind development of Boca Raton. He was the brother and sometime partner of businessman, raconteur and playwright Wilson Mizner. The brothers' series of scams and picaresque misadventures were the inspiration for Stephen Sondheim's musical Road Show (2008).
