South Carolina State Government

South Carolina Legislative Manuals
The first edition of the South Carolina Legislative Manual was issued on February 4, 1916 on the initiative of J. Wilson Gibbes, the first author. It contained 117 pages. Since then, it has been published every year that the SC General Assembly was in session except for 1922, 1926, 1928, and 1932.
Biographies of Members of the state's General Assembly, the Executive Branch, and the Judicial Branch were added in 1919, and photographs of members were first included in 1925.
The SC Legislature sells copies of the South Carolina Legislative Manual for the years of 1976 to 2020. FYI - these books are "pocket sized" (6" x 4") with fairly small font size and fairly small photographs. But, they have tons of information in them on the government officials of SC. Some years have been completely sold out and therefore no longer available for purchase. They are issued in May each year, but you have to call to place an order since their online store has been taken down.
The South Carolina State Library has added to their digital collections and they now have almost all copies of the South Carolina Legislative Manual that can be viewed/downloaded in Adobe PDF format.

Reminder, 1922, 1926, 1928, and 1932 were not printed.
