The papers of John C Hungerpiller (1882–1976), public school educator, author, and 1908 graduate of USC, have been donated to the South Caroliniana Library for their literary and historical significance. The collection of manuscripts and correspondence related to his editing and publishing of the anthology, South Carolina Literature (1931), are of particular value. Also included are his published and unpublished poetry as well as his Sketch of the Life and Character of Jonathan Maxcy (1917).
Mrs. Ingram's generous gift to the Library will be used to preserve the Hungerpiller Papers and other significant documents and volumes within the Library's collection. The Library is indebted to Mrs. Ingram for her far-sighted and tangible support of educational materials and their preservation for the future. More information about the Hungerpiller Endowment may be had by contacting us.
