P. Bradley Morrah, Jr., represented Greenville County in the S.C. House of Representatives in 1940 and 1947 to 1948, and served in the state Senate from 1953 to 1966. During these years, Morrah and several others, including John West, Earle Morris, and Marshall Parker, banded together to pursue their legislative goals in an informal group they called "the left field boys." The group challenged the old-line establishment represented by Edgar Brown and Marion Gressette.
