Dana Albert Dorsey, Businessman and Philanthropist

(1872–1940)

African American D. A. Dorsey moved to the Miami area about 1896, where he built rental housing for blacks. He built Miami’s first hotel for blacks, the Dorsey Hotel, and partly owned the Negro Savings Bank. He became one of Florida’s first millionaires, and spent part of his wealth for the greater good. For example, he donated land for black schools and a library.
