Memories of Politics Past

In honor of former Senator “Fritz” Hollings and the dedication of USC’s new Hollings Special Collections Library on Friday, July 23, the Statehouse Report ran this photograph.  The caption reads:

During his tenure as Governor of South Carolina (1959-1963), Ernest “Fritz” Hollings promoted participation in blood drives by giving his arm to the cause.  Here he seems to be enjoying the preliminary check-up given by the nurse.

The Hollings papers are one of almost one hundred collections held by South Carolina Political Collections at the University of South Carolina.

Photo and caption originally appeared in the July 23, 2010, issue of Statehouse Report.
