Preserving Charleston s Past Shaping Its Future

Preserving Charleston s Past  Shaping Its Future

In the post-Civil War period, Southern women slowly shook loose from the longstanding image of the lady on the pedestal and, through club work and group association, developed independence and began to affect public life. One such notable new woman was Charleston's Susan Pringle Frost (1873-1960). This book recounts the life story of this active woman, describing her background, philosophy, and accomplishments in the area of advancing the image of the woman in society. A member of an illustrious old family, Frost constantly challenged convention, as a federal district court stenographer, as a real estate woman with an office in the professional district, as a women's rights advocate. She helped get women admitted to the College of Charleston and headed city and state National Woman's Party efforts to achieve women's suffrage and later, the Equal Rights Amendment. Bland asserts that Frost is chiefly important, however, as an historic preservationist. In a rapidly expanding sweep, beginning about 1909, Miss Frost bought and renovated numerous houses in the historic East Battery ristrict. Indebtedness mounted, and to aid her efforts she founded and for many years headed the Preservation Society of Charleston. On several Charleston civic commissions and, in her seventies, still a member of the Zoning Board, Susan Frost was a life-long worker for city betterment and tirelessly monitored Charleston preservation efforts. Preserving Charleston's Past, Shaping Its Future shows how a preservation pioneer, Susan Pringle Frost, helped shape the Southern new woman image and served as a role model for women of all generations.

This work contains abstracts of the records of approximately 7,500 persons who were naturalized in the state of South Carolina between the years 1783 and 1850. As it is based not only on the records of various jurisdictions but on the various types of records associated with naturalization, such as declarations of intent, petitions and actual citizenship certificates, information given in the volume varies to a rather marked degree. In general, however, some or all of the following data is evident: name, country of origin, place of residence in the U.S., occupation, date of arrival in the U.S., and date of application or admission.

This new reader contains 38 selections relating to African American cultural history. Drawing upon the author's interest and expertise in oral traditions, this reader identifies historical "texts" that reveal thought and achievement in African American communities in the United States. Professor Fitch emphasizes such non-written records as orature, movement and dance, vernacular architecture, and the plastic arts in combating the notion that traditionally oral communities have little to offer historians. HOW SWEET THE SOUND portrays the urgency and vibrancy of African American history.
