How/where might I find the book that this information came from?

I author a Jewish history of Broward County (FL) website
http://www.jgsbroward.org/ and this item appears to have been incorrectly
cited..

"The '30s is a difficult time for Jews in Fort Lauderdale, which has an
"Anti-Semitic reputation". Many hotels are "restricted" forcing Jewish
travelers and tourists to go south to hotels in Hollywood or the Miami area.
Henry Morgenthau, Secretary of the Treasury under FDR, comes here on Coast
Guard business. He is told the hotel would accept him, but not Jewish staff
members. He refuses to stay in Ft. Lauderdale and finds accommodations
outside the city limits."
