Welcome to the South Carolina Newspaper Journalists Oral History Project

On this site you will find oral history interviews with some of South Carolina's leading newspaper journalists from the past 70 years.

The goal of the Oral History Project is to ensure that the heritage of the state's journalists and newspapers is preserved.

With more than 115 daily and weekly newspapers, South Carolina has a tradition of outstanding journalism. South Carolina newspapers serve communities of every size with news and information.

The Oral History Project is a joint project of the S.C. Press Association and the University of South Carolina School of Journalism and Mass Communications. More interviews are being conducted every year, so we hope you will return regularly. If you have questions about the program or how to use the interviews, please contact us.
