For more than fifty years, the Hyde Family Foundation has supported and financed numerous projects and developments throughout Memphis, including Shelby Farms and the National Civil Rights Museum.
Now, Hyde cash is driving Riverfront Development and the Brooks Museum’s move to Downtown.
Founder and Trustee for the Hyde Family Foundation, Pitt Hyde, joins host Eric Barnes and Daily Memphian reporter Bill Dries for this week’s WKNO/Channel 10 Behind the Headlines.
Hyde says that redevelopment of Tom Lee Park should take the needs of Memphis in May's Beale Street Music Festival into consideration.
Hyde says that his foundation looks for projects that improve and enhance the City of Memphis. One of those plans, Hyde believes, is the Brooks Museum's relocation to Downtown. Hyde talks about the move and addresses some concerns.
