About the articles:

In the early 1900’s W. J. Galloway, a reporter for the Dillon Herald, wrote many interesting articles in a column called “Swinging Round the Circle.”  The articles were about his swing around the county on his Balaam (we have determined his Balaam was a mule) and his visits with the local people.  He names people and places he visited.

Also in those early issues were several articles, by the editor of the Dillon Herald, A. B. Jordan as well as an assortment of topics published in the paper that are not only advantageous to researchers but entertaining as well.

With the help of my friend, Mary Lewis of Columbia, we are transcribing many of the articles and as time permits I will upload them to this site. Enjoy.
