Culbertson, a labor lawyer and activist, was a "liberal lion" of South Carolina's Upstate for most of the twentieth century, establishing a law practice in which he represented unions, the working class, disabled veterans, African-Americans, and others in need of a voice. He also served in World War II, as a private secretary to Congressman John J. McSwain (D-SC), and as a special agent in the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
