Tampa Cigar Industry and Art Collection: Welcome

Cigar label art and the Tampa cigar industry

Tampa Cigar Industry

The cigar industry's pivotal role in the development of early Tampa makes collecting, preserving, and researching cigar and cigar box realia and ephemera an important focal point for Special & Digital Collections. The Department's near-complete run of the Tobacco Leaf industry journal and its collection of lithographic cigar box labels represent an important aspect of American and Florida culture.
