More About Rodger Stroup: Major Themes in South Carolina's History

The Horry County Museum and The AVX Foundation present a lecture by Rodger Stroup on Saturday, July 14th, on themes in South Carolina’s history.
This presentation traces 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. We will also trace the story of the state's ongoing support for our military.
A native of St. Louis, MO, Rodger Stroup grew up in Charlotte, NC and graduated with a B.A. Degree in History from Wofford College in 1968. After serving in the Army Signal Corps, Stroup attended graduate school at the University of South Carolina where his major fields of study included Southern and South Carolina History. 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. Dr. Stroup is currently working on a history of the South Carolina State Fair commemorating its 150th anniversary in 2019.
The program will begin at 1 pm in the McCown Auditorium located at 805 Main Street, Conway SC. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, call 843-915-5320 or email hcgmuseum@horrycounty.org. To view a full list of programs, visit our website at click for details.

More About this Event Poster: Horry County Museum

The Horry County Museum was established in 1979 and opened its doors to the public in 1981. The Museum focuses on the history, pre-history, and natural history of Horry County, S.C., and educates the public about these subjects through exhibits, outreach programs, and events. In 2009, the Museum opened the L. W. Paul Living History Farm. The Farm is a re-creation of life on a one horse family farm between the years of 1900-1955. Visitors to the farm can experience what life was like in a farm community during those years and attend quarterly events at the Farm. In 2014, the Museum moved into the renovated 1905 Burroughs School. The school is on the National Register of Historic Places. The move includes increased exhibits, a freshwater aquarium featured on Animal Planet’s hit reality show “Tanked”, and a 600 seat auditorium that hosts public presentations and programs.
