Scope and Content Note

This collection consists of book titled, The Children of King Hagler by Robert Miller (Bob) Ward (1916-?) published by The Catawba Press: Rock Hill, SC in 1940. This publication is about King Hagler (ca. 1700-1763) who was the chief of the Catawba Indian tribe from 1754-1763 and provides historic documentation of the Catawba and the descendants of King Hagler. He “was the most noted chief of the old Catawba Nation and this is the story of his people –a brief history of the Catawba who live on a state reservation nine miles east of Rock Hill (Bob Ward).” King Hagler would later become the first Native American to be inducted into the South Carolina Hall of Fame in 2009.

Provenance

The Children of King Hagler was donated to the Carnegie Library at Winthrop College by Bob Ward and later transferred to the Archives.
