The George Fish Yearbook scanning project was sponsored by the George Fish School Foundation, LLC and the Fort Mill History Museum to make these "resources available to the local community, businesses, schools, and South Carolina libraries for research." This project will enable access and additional insight into the life of the African American community in Fort Mill during the 1960s from an educational, cultural, and historical perspective.

The yearbooks were made available on loan for scanning courtesy of Ms. Cora Dunlap Lyles.
