A Collection Selection

Wyche, Charles Cecil (1885-1966)

Papers, 1906-1969, 4 ft.
Charles Cecil Wyche served as the U.S. District Judge for the Western District of South Carolina for almost thirty years, from 1937 until his death in 1966.  The collection primarily documents this portion of his career, although he also served a term in the S.C. House in 1913-1914, as well as serving in World War I, as city and county attorney for Spartanburg, and as a specially appointed associate justice on the South Carolina Supreme Court in 1924.
