Cover Art MArK M. MILLer The University of Southern Mississippi C. eroS SALINA CHÁveZ Universidad de La Habana Cuban tourism researcher Frank Delgado shot the cover photo for this issue of the Southeastern Geographer. Delgado and Eros Salinas, professor of tourism at the University of Havana, have been researching the former Hershey sugar mill complex in Cuba, and the potential for conservation and sustainable development of this community. Milton Hershey and his eponymous company managed as much as 36,000 ha. (140 square miles) of sugar production land near Havana between 1919 and 1946. The center of this massive operation was the Hershey mill. The model company town of Hershey, Cuba included a nature garden, the Hotel Hershey, a baseball stadium and golf course, and Hershey's own personal estate. A technologically innovative 56-mile electric train route connected the mill with the island's major ports. Today, the Hershey mill is inactive, and much of Cuba's sugar land has been taken out of production. Despite the loss of the mill, the community of Hershey struggles but remains alive, Hershey Gardens welcomes local visitors and tourists, and the Hershey train still carries passengers between Havana, Hershey, and the city of Matanzas.
