Some scholars have argued that James F. Byrnes was the greatest South Carolina politician of the twentieth century. The only American to have served as a U.S. Representative, Senator, Supreme Court Justice, Presidential cabinet member, and Governor, Byrnes was, if not the greatest, certainly one of the most active and versatile South Carolinians of his time.
On Nov. 12, 2016, a panel of former Byrnes Foundation scholarship recipients - Carol Ann Green, Ralph Gregory, Lois Anderson, and Dr. Bill Rowe - discussed the impact of the Scholarship, the Foundation and the Byrnes on their lives.
