Program presenter Harvey Teal was honored with a special plaque by the Kershaw County Historical Society Sept. 30 at the Robert Mills Courthouse in Camden as “Faithful Friend of Our History, Recorder and Raconteur of All Things Great and Small.”
A charter member of the Society in 1954, the ninety-year-old Teal has presented a number of programs and authored a number of books, many of them on Kershaw County and among the Society’s publications for sale. He regularly writes a column for the Society of related historical topics published in the Camden Chronicle-Independent.
Co-presenter Tim Lord was welcomed as a new member of the Society and thanked for his program contribution with copies of Camden Homes and Camden Interiors.
An interested crowd of 35 lingered for conversation, refreshments, book purchasing, and viewing of an array of artifacts that Teal and Lord had discussed with their slides and presentation, “Mail on the Rails!!”
Officers elected for the upcoming year are Tony Scully, president; secretary, Melissa Saavedra; and treasurer, John Miller.
