Inscription.  Don Smally was instrumental to the restoration of Mable Ringling Fountain. The restoration was one of his of his many projects as a respected leader of Sarasota who championed its progress and preserved its heritage. In 1956 Don founded Smally, Wellford and Scott, later renamed Smally, Wellford and Nalven (SWN). The history of the firm is chronicled in Don’s 2009 Book, “Sarasota and Me, An Engineer’s Life (and Love) Story.” Don Smally’s impact on Sarasota was summarized by Dale White in the April 17, 2012 Sarasota Herald Tribune: “Ever since he and his wife settled in Sarasota in 1950, Don Smally devoted himself to preserving the community’s history, boosting its cultural scene and making it a better place to live.”
