Introduction to the Centennial Volume


Emerson, W. Eric, South Carolina Historical Magazine


ONE HUNDRED YEARS AGO THE SOUTH CAROLINA HISTORICAL Society's officers and curators created the South Carolina Historical and Genealogical Magazine to carry out the third pillar of the Society's mission of collecting, preserving, and publishing the history of South Carolina. Since that time the South Carolina Historical Magazine has been the foremost periodical of South Carolina history, containing over one thousand articles and documents, both historical and genealogical, for use by academic and amateur historians.1

The changes that they have engendered in its form and content have ensured that readers nationwide continue to view it as an invaluable historical resource.3 Furthermore, our accolades go to those who have served on the Editorial Board for consistently maintaining the quality of the Magazine's contents. Similarly, much credit is due to those who have served on the Society's Board of Managers. They have recognized the importance of the Magazine and maintained its uninterrupted publication even during times of economic hardship. They also have guaranteed its editorial independence, without which no academic publication can maintain its credibility. Finally, and most importantly, the Magazine owes its existence to the continued support to its readers.4

Despite a century of publishing the state's history, there are many aspects of South Carolina's past that the Magazine has not sufficiently addressed. The Magazine receives few submissions regarding the state's modern history, industrialization, or labor relations. …
