Harbison Agricultural College Collection (Irmo, S.C.), 1911-ca. 1956
One hundred nineteen photographs and one photograph album, 1911-ca. 1956, from Harbison Agricultural College in Irmo. A Presbyterian Church institution for African-American children, Harbison began in Abbeville in 1882 and flourished under the sponsorship of Samuel P. Harbison. In 1911, it moved to Irmo, became a school for boys only, and added agricultural instruction to its main curriculum. Many students paid for their tuition and board by working on the college's farm. The institution also maintained a coed parochial school for local children. Most of the photographs were made during the tenure of President Calvin Monroe Young (1906-1929). [Editor's note: this name originally published in hard copy version of this publication as "Calvin MOORE Young"; error noticed by a child of C.M. Young and reported to editor, 8 Mar. 2001.]

The collection contains class pictures and student portraits as well as views of students working on the farm, life around the college, and the parochial school. Many of the photographs were taken by Columbia photographers such as Garfield Joyce, Germain Studio, Johnson's Studio, and Richard Samuel Roberts. Other South Carolina photographers include J.H. Collins in Chester, Joyner Studio in Rock Hill, R.K. McAdams in Due West, and Williams Photography in Gadsden.

Pershing (1860-1948).
