Scope and Content Note

The papers of Hugh E. Henry provide various looks into what the Henry family of Chester County held close. You will find newspaper clippings detailing high school reunions ranging from 1938-1942 as well as sporting team photographs. There are three Chester High School yearbooks in the collection: 1939, 1940, and 1941. Within the collection are a plethora of newspaper clippings that contain obituaries of Chester High School students and faculty who attended the school from 1938-1941 as well as an obituary for former Mayor Mr. Edward Hood Dawson of Chester County. Mr. Hugh E. Henry attended the Associate Presbyterian Church and held handbooks, programs and pamphlets from 1959 through 1973. A smaller part of the collection involves the Chester County courthouse. A newspaper clipping from 2000 has an article of William Knox reporting a lost plaque at the courthouse. Also within the collection are negatives of the 1942 Chester fire, a 1932 map of the South Carolina State Highway System, and two pages of a Winthrop College Orchestra program from 1943.
