Modern Political Collections Endowment

Established in 1991 as a division of the South Caroliniana Library, Modern Political Collections collects and preserves materials pertaining the activities of South Carolinians and their government at the state and federal levels. Pursuing an active acquisitions program, the division targets records created by:

  • members of South Carolina's congressional delegation,
  • leaders in the General Assembly,
  • the state's political parties,
  • organizations providing governmental or electoral oversight, and
  • other persons and organizations playing substantive roles in, or affecting, government.

The Modern Political Collections Endowment supports the work of South Caroliniana Library's division of Modern Political Collections. Currently, endowment income funds several graduate assistantships annually. As the endowment grows, income will also be used for research awards to encourage the study of the division's holdings, exhibits, staff development, and other activities designed to promote the division and enhance its ability to collect, preserve, and make available manuscript collections relating to contemporary government.
