SCPC lost a good friend last week with the passing of USC political science professor Charles Weasmer. After his retirement in 1987, Charles volunteered with SCPC helping to create a time log tracing events in South Carolina and on the national stage since 1945. This log is a valuable research tool used regularly by SCPC staff. It has been particularly valuable in helping us in preparing for oral history interviews. We will miss Charles’ friendly presence and expert and articulate advice.
