UNIVERSITY SOUTH CAROLINIANA SOCIETY
Holman Endowment supports libraryThe Arthur Elliott Holman, Jr., Acquisition and Preservation Endowment was established for the South Caroliniana Library by A. Elliott Holman III on August 19, 1996, the occasion of his father's 80th birthday. Proceeds from the endowment will be used for new acquisitions and for preservation of current holdings in the areas of Mr. Holman's interests, such as the Episcopal church, music and the arts, Anderson County, and other aspects of South Carolina history. This year, An Historical Account of the Protestant Episcopal Church in South Carolina, from the First Settlement of the Province, to the War of the Revolution... will be preserved with funds from this account. The volume was written by Frederick Dalcho in 1820 and was presented to the University by its former president, J. Rion McKissick.
The Holman family has a history of supporting the South Caroliniana Library, beginning with Mrs. Arthur Elliott Holman who was a charter member of the University South Caroliniana Society in 1936. Mr. and Mrs. A. Elliott Holman, Jr., are currently members of the society. Mr. A. Elliott Holman is continuing his family's tradition by establishing this endowment to benefit students and researchers at the South Caroliniana Library for years to come.
