Essay, 2006, "Random Recollections about John West and Lois Rhame West," by H.W.C. Furman captures memories of a friendship that dates back to the days that Furman and John Carl West (1922-2004) were classmates at The Citadel and continued during their later practice in the same law firm in Camden, S.C., and close association during West's years in political office. | Manuscripts Gifts 2007 | Previous Issues | Endowments | Friends of the Library |
