Scope and Content Note

This Evening Herald Photograph Collection consists of positive prints and negatives. The photographs were used in news stories published by the Rock Hill, SC newspaper, the Evening Herald (Rock Hill Herald). The positive print photographs were printed without emulsion and are degrading quickly. The photographs depict people, events, and places in the area and include Rock Hill, Fort Mill, Chester, Clover, and York scenes. There are photographs of area churches, landmarks, identified and unidentified people, mayors of Rock Hill. They also show scenes from Mrs. Lyndon B. “Lady Bird” Johnson, Astronaut, Charles M. Duke, I. DeQuincey Newman, and Richard Nixon’s visits to the area.


The Evening Herald Photographs were donated to the Archives in January 1985 by the Evening Herald.
