Ross, Daniel I., Jr. (1923-2008)

Oral History Transcript (pdf, 111 pages)
In this 2001 interview, Ross reflects on his life and particularly his activity in the Republican Party in South Carolina. A Blackville area native, Ross was educated at the University of South Carolina and the University of Texas.  He maintained the family farm, and retired from the E.I. DuPont Company, where he was employed as a staff engineer chiefly responsible for environmental monitoring. As chair, he vigorously expanded the Party's base outside its strongholds in the upstate and Lexington County and worked to win offices at lower levels of government as well as targeting statewide and Congressional offices.
