A History of the University of South Carolina, 1940-2000

The history of the modern University of South Carolina (originally chartered as South Carolina College in 1801) describes the significant changes in the state and in the character of higher education in South Carolina. World War II, the civil rights struggle, and the revolution in research and South Carolina's economy transformed USC from a small state university in 1939, with a student body of less than 2,000 and an annual budget of $725,000, to a 1990 population of more than 25,000 and an annual budget of $454 million. then the University was little more than a small liberal arts college; today the university is at the head of a statewide system of higher education with eight branch campuses. Henry H. Lesesne recounts the historic transformation of USC into a modern research university, grounding that change in the context of the modernization of South Carolina and the South in general. The half century from 1940 to 1990 wrought great changes in South Carolina and its most prominent university. State and national politics, the challenges of funding modern higher educations, and the explosive growth of intercollegiate sports are among other elements of the University that were tra

South Carolina at the Brink

As the Democratic governor of South Carolina during the height of the civil rights movement, Robert E. McNair faced the task of leading the state through the dismantling of its pervasive Jim Crow culture. Despite the obstacles, McNair was able to navigate a moderate course away from a past dominated by an old-guard oligarchy toward a more pragmatic, inclusive, and prosperous era. South Carolina at the Brink is the first biography of this remarkable statesman, as well as a history of the tumultuous times in which he governed. In telling McNair's story, Philip G. Grose recounts historic moments of epic turbulence, chronicles the development of the man himself, and maps the course of action tha...

Freshwater Fishes of South Carolina

"Freshwater Fishes of South Carolina is the result of long-term collaboration between a quartet of leading experts on the state's freshwater fishes - Fred C. Rohde, Rudolf G. Arndt, Jeffrey W.

From mudminnows and sunfishes to lampreys and sturgeons, the guide describes more than one hundred fifty species of freshwater and coastal estuarine fishes that spend all or major portions of their lives in the fresh waters of South Carolina. For each species the authors provide diagnostic characteristics including size, markings, similar species, and sexual dimorphism as well as information on biology, habitat, and distribution.

"The Guignard family of South Carolina was established by Gabriel Guignard who came to the province from France before 1737. ... The Guignard Collection begins with the papers of John Gabriel Guignard, son of the emigrant, who was born in Charleston in 1751 and died in Columbia in 1822. ... Before his marriage in 1779, Guignard had moved from Charleston to High Hills of Santee near what is now Stateburg in Sumter. ... In 1779 Guignard was married to Elizabeth Sanders, daughter of James and Sarah Slann Sanders. ... In 1795 Guignard completed what was to be the family pattern of planting, business, and public office, and established the future family home when he became Treasurer of the Upper Division of South Carolina with his office in Columbia. He continued as Treasurer until 1798 when he was elected Surveyor General of South Carolina, a post in which he served until 1802. ... John G. and Elizabeth Sanders Guignard had only one child, James Sanders Guignard, born in 1780. With this son the bulk of the collection begins."--P. 3-4.

South Carolina in the Modern Age

Originally published in 1992, South Carolina in the Modern Age was the first history of contemporary South Carolina to appear in more than a quarter century and helped establish the reputation of the Palmetto State's premier historian, Walter Edgar, who had not yet begun the two landmark volumes—South Carolina: A History and The South Carolina Encyclopedia—that also bear his name. Available once again, this illustrated volume chronicles transformational events in South Carolina as the state emerged from the devastation that followed the Civil War and progressed through the challenges of the twentieth century. After the Civil War, South Carolina virtually disappeared from the national con...
