Rodger Stroup: Major Themes in South Carolina's History

Rodger Stroup: Major Themes in South Carolina's History

Museum, Talks/Lectures, History/Science
Rodger Stroup will trace some of the major subjects in South Carolina's history including the development of the state's seal and symbols, the sense of independence that evolved during the colonial era and manifested itself in the state seceding from the Union in 1860 and the struggle to incorporate a large African American population into the mainstream of the state's development. Dr. Stroup has served as the director/curator of the Historic Columbia Foundation, deputy director of the South Carolina State Museum, and past chairman of the South Carolina Archives and History Center. Since retiring in 2009, Dr. Stroup has remained active in several history organizations and is currently the curator of the South Carolina Railroad Museum, the superintendent of railroad operations, and a certified conductor on the museum’s railroad the Rockton, Rion & Western Railroad.
