Life and Times: The Art of the Political Biography

South Carolina Political Collections Gallery, Hollings Library
Jan 1, 2013 - Mar 29, 2013

Several biographies have been written by or about South Carolina Political Collections donors.  Some of the research for these books was even done right here at SCPC.  Besides going to the archives, there are many steps an author goes through before a biography is published. The exhibit in the SCPC gallery, Life and Times: The Art of the Political Biography, traces these steps from the initial research to the reader’s edition, by looking at the writing process of two South Carolina journalists and biographers (and SCPC donors), Phil Grose and Jack BassItems on exhibit include drafts, research notes, galley prints, and other elements of the writers' craft.  This exhibit was curated by SCPC graduate assistant Caitlin Mans and will be on display through March 29.
