They came from Chicago and stayed

Howard and Iris Kaplan both had early ties to the Miami area, although they were both born and raised in Chicago. Howard's parents brought him to South Beach in his teen years during the winter. His sister couldn't take the cold weather; she had a heart condition, and in the 1930s, there was no surgery to help her. Iris had an aunt, Aunt Mona, who lived in Miami Beach.
