An Honor Bestowed On A Worthy Few

South Carolina State Hall of Fame

Persons born in South Carolina who obtained recognition elsewhere and persons born elsewhere but who made their home in and obtained esteem and recognition in the state of South Carolina are eligible for induction.

One contemporary and one deceased citizen may be inducted into the Hall of Fame annually. The Confederation of South Carolina Local Historical Societies is the official organization for selecting nominees for the Hall of Fame. Each of the Confederation's 10 districts selects nominees - thus presenting 10 contemporary and 10 deceased nominees to the Board of Trustees for judging annually.

The South Carolina Hall of Fame is a non-profit corporation conducted under a state charter and is funded by the state of South Carolina, the city of Myrtle Beach and the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce.

September 20, 2001, Governor Jim Hodges signed into law a bill designating the South Carolina Hall of Fame, the official Hall of Fame.

South Carolinians Leave An Indelible Mark In History

From signing the Declaration of Independence to landing on the moon, the sons and daughters of South Carolina have played a part in some of the most momentous events in modern history.

Each year, two notable South Carolinians are inducted into the South Carolina Hall of Fame located in the Myrtle Beach Convention Center. The gallant procession of statesmen, scientists, artists, soldiers, clergymen, teachers, bankers and athletics is represented in the gallery of color portraits hung in the Hall of Fame Lobby.

Inductees include President Andrew Jackson, Author Elizabeth Coker, Jazz Legend Dizzy Gillespie, Painter Jasper Johns, Gen. William C. Westmoreland, Senator J. Strom Thurmond, and more than 45 others.

Astronaut Charles M. Duke, Jr. actually carried a South Carolina flag on his journey to the moon. A replica of the footprints Duke made on the moon is embedded in concrete in front of the Myrtle Beach Convention Center.

In addition to the portrait gallery, the Hall of Fame exhibit includes an interactive touch screen kiosk featuring video monitors which allows visitors to access information about each of the inductees. The recorded introduction is by Walter Cronkite.
