Leonard Skinner's House (Former)


Jacksonville, Florida (FL), US
Leonard Skinner was the basketball coach and gym teacher who inspired the name of the Southern rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd.

He was working at Robert E. Lee High School in Jacksonville in the late 1960s when he sent a group of students to the principal's office because their hair was too long. Those students later formed a band, using a variation of Skinner's name for their own.
