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
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.
