Additions to the Vertical File Collection

The South Carolina Room is in the process of integrating several boxes of donated articles into our vertical files.  Of special interest for Black History Month are hundreds of articles from the 1960s and 70s that cover the integration of Charleston schools.  Some of the school folders we have added to include: district changes, enrollment, accreditation of new schools, violence, crime, and school programs.  Burke High, North Charleston, and Stall High are just a few of the individual school folders that have acquired new information. The articles are invaluable for anyone studying Charleston County Schools or desegregation.  Postings will continue as the staff adds to our vertical file collection.
