Two New Finding Aids Online: Edgar & Ann Morris and Charles Wickenberg

We've recently added two finding aids to our online listings:

Edgar & Ann Morris were both key figures in the growth of the Republican Party in South Carolina during the 1950s and 1960s. In 1950 Edgar was named Chairman of the state Republican Party, and he soon became involved in an effort to renew the Party as something more than a patronage organization and provide the state with a viable alternative to the Democratic Party.

Charles Wickenberg (pictured, during his tour in Korea) enjoyed a distinguished forty-year career as a journalist, primarily with The State newspaper in Columbia, S.C. He served in the Marine Corps in both World War II and the Korean War, and subsequently as Gov. George Bell Timmerman’s Executive Secretary from 1955 to 1958. This collection also contains papers concerning the Wickenberg family.
