Scope and Content Note

This collection consists of a guestbook kept by Rock Hill, SC resident Arthur Wycliffe Huckle (1887-1975). The guestbook documented all the visitors to his home at 941 Myrtle Drive from August 12, 1945 through May 5, 1960. The guestbook lists the date, name and address of each guest, most of whom were from out of town. Mr. A. W. Huckle was owner and editor of the local newspaper the The Herald (later Evening Herald) until he sold it to Talbot Patrick in 1947. Mr Huckle was very active in the Rock Hill Community and later donated $25,000 to the City of Rock Hill to form the A.W. Huckle City Beautification Committee which was created on July 11, 1960. The Huckle Grove Park was dedicated in 1991 in his honor and is located at the corner of Black Street and Dave Lyle Boulevard.

Provenance

The Arthur Wycliffe Huckle Guestbook was donated to the Louise Pettus Archives by the York County Library on August 8, 2019.
