Across Governor Richard I. Mannings Desk
Part Two
Placeholder Image
As one of his more obscure and less publicized duties, Governor Richard I. Manning served ex officio as a member of the Board of Trustees of the S.C. College from 1824-26. Although an obscure duty, his service would have a far-reaching influence on the Library of the S.C. College and the scholarly communities of the state and nation. While Manning served as governor, less than a dozen items out of the 750 items in the South Caroliniana Library which “crossed Governor Manning’s desk” concerned the S.C. College.
