NOTED SOUTH CAROLINA HISTORIAN TO SPEAK AT COASTAL

Walter Edgar, noted South Carolina historian, will speak at Coastal Carolina University on Monday, April 9 at 3 p.m. in Wall Building 309. The event is free and open to the public.

Edgar's talk, sponsored by the Waccamaw Center for Cultural and Historical Studies, is titled "The Patriot: Hollywood and History." "Walter Edgar is a great South Carolinian - a splendid historian, a stimulating lecturer, and a dedicated and public-spirited citizen," said Charles Joyner, director of the Waccamaw Center.

Edgar, who serves as the Claude Neuffer Professor of Southern Studies at the University of South Carolina, is the author of the South Carolina: A History. He is also the host of "Walter Edgar's Journal" which airs every Friday afternoon on South Carolina Educational Radio Network.

Edgar is the author or editor of 14 books on South Carolina and the American South. He founded and served as the first director of USC's acclaimed Public History Program.
