Photos re JCC and Jewish life in Charleston, SC, 1940s-1950s

 File — Box: 3, Folder: 3

Collection Overview

From the Collection:

The administrative files mostly document planning for, financing, and building the new Jewish Community Center in suburban Charleston; with blueprints, architects Simons, Lapham, Mitchell and Small correspondence and a small amount of history. The largest series contains photographs documenting Jewish life and Jewish Community Center activities, ca. 1945 to 1998. Original order, when possible, was kept, there being topical and biographical files (including images, 1980s-1990s, of Russian immigrants), and files corresponding by date to images taken for and sometimes used in the newsletter, "Center Talk." The largest series documents day and residential Camps Baker, K'Tanim, Wesash and Juniper (in Cheraw, S.C.), sponsored by the Center. Also included are papers and photographs of the Friendship Club (1948-1990s) for Senior Citizens; and that of the Junior Booster and Booster Clubs, dedicated to fundraising for the Center. There are some papers of the Archives Committee, a few earlier (1920s-1940s) oversize photographs and reproductions, some ephemera and printed matter.
