An obscure note of Florida history

In 1881, an industrialist/financier purchased 4 million(yes 4 million) acres of a penniless Florida for 1 million dollars. It was his dream to dry up the Everglades for farmland and the creation of cities. Do you know who I'm talking about? Why is his name so obscure in Florida history?
