William D. Workman, Jr. is best remembered for his pivotal role in the emergence of a viable Republican Party in South Carolina. In 1962, when the Democrats were the dominant political power in the state, he made a serious, competitive bid for the U.S. Senate as a Republican. In his career as a journalist, he wrote for Charleston's Post and Courier and Columbia's The State, becoming editor of the latter in 1966.
