The Library is pleased to report on the establishment of several new endowment and scholarship programs as well as the continued success of several established programs.
At the annual meeting, the Society recognized and thanked the donors of two endowments that have been established to assist the South Caroliniana Library's conservation and acquisition efforts and to enable scholars to conduct research on government, politics, and society in South Carolina since 1900.
The Orin F. Crow Acquisition and Preservation Endowment was established by Dr. Crow's daughter and son-in-law, Mary and Dick Anderson. The Ellison Durant Smith Research Award was established by Mr. John McLeod of Greenville through the estate of his father, Harold McCallum McLeod, and honors his father's cousin, United States Senator Ellison Smith.
The Library is also pleased to announce that the William Jennings Bryan Dorn Young Scholar Prize will honor the best paper by an undergraduate student who conducts research in the Library's Modern Political Collections Division.
This past summer the Library hosted two visiting scholars under the auspices of previously established fellowships. For the second consecutive summer, Dr. James B. Meriwether was the William Gilmore Simms Visiting Professor. He continued his research on a bibliography of William Gilmore Simms' separate publications including books, pamphlets, and contributions in periodicals.
Mr. James O. Spady spent the summer months at the Library as the Lewis P. Jones Summer Research Fellow. A graduate student in the American Studies program at The College of William and Mary, Mr. Spady researched educational practices and institutions in the lower South from the 1730s through the 1820s and analyzed their relationship to the cultural politics of the American Revolution.
