    By Jeff Kidd

    Retired University of South Carolina Beaufort Chancellor Jane Upshaw remembers well the hectic day of travel between Columbia and Beaufort in December 2002 -- arguably the most important day in the school’s history.

    In the morning, she traveled to Columbia, where she had to convince the University of South Carolina Board of Trustees to endorse the Beaufort branch’s bid to award four-year baccalaureate degrees. If they agreed, that evening she would go before Beaufort County Council to sell them on a tax plan to fund construction of a new campus in Southern Beaufort County.

    Fortunately, Upshaw says, she did not travel alone that day.

    With her was the influential Brantley Harvey Jr., a former state legislator and lieutenant governor who played an outsized role in shaping education, roadways and the arts in Beaufort County.

    Harvey died Wednesday, Dec. 12, 2018, at Beaufort Memorial Hospital after a short illness. He was 88.

    Recalling the pivotal day in USCB history and Harvey's role in it, Upshaw said in an interview earlier this month: “I’ll tell you this -- Brantley was the one I could always count on to come and speak when it mattered most, and the statements he made were always taken to heart because of his standing as a leader in the state of South Carolina."

    County Council had made it clear that without the USC board’s support in making USCB a four-year institution, school leaders could forget about help financing a new campus. So at the meeting that morning, Harvey’s wife Helen – a power in her own right and member of the Board of Trustees – helped sway her colleagues to support USCB’s bid. Meanwhile, Harvey worked with the board to craft a resolution  that would satisfy County Council’s demands.

    That evening, Harvey helped sway County Council to accept a tax-increment finance plan to build the Hilton Head Island Gateway campus in Okatie. It opened in 2004.

    “He was such a willing speaker, and it’s almost impossible to exaggerate the importance of Brantley and Alice Harvey in helping make USCB what it is today,” said Upshaw, who retired as chancellor in 2015. 

    It wasn’t merely Harvey’s political and legal experience that gave his words force: A few years before that frenetic Monday in 2002, he and his wife donated $1 million for a scholarship fund and development of the southern Beaufort County campus. 

    The donation was but one of Harvey’s bona fides as a civic leader. In addition to holding elective office, he served stints on state and regional boards governing education, highways and tourism. The Beaufort Marine Institute and the Beaufort Symphony Orchestra were among his many philanthropic interests. He was active in Beaufort's First Presbyterian Church.

    “Brantley was a giant in every way — personally, professionally and politically,” state Sen. Tom Davis, a partner in Harvey’s law firm, said in a Facebook post Dec. 13, 2018. “He was an excellent lawyer, a fine statesman, a true and loyal friend, and a loving father and husband. I will miss him very much.”

    He attended public schools and was valedictorian of Beaufort High School’s 1947 class. He went on to graduate magna cum laude from The Citadel, spent two years as an officer in the U.S. Army, then earned a law degree from the University of South Carolina in 1955. He joined his father’s law firm, known today as Harvey & Battey, at a time when both the practice and the area were primed for rapid growth. Harvey’s real estate title work helped the U.S. Department of the Navy acquire land for the Laurel Bay military housing community and expand the reactivated Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort, which had been mothballed for about 10 years after World War II.

    Harvey followed his father into law and into politics, as well. Brantley Harvey Sr. had served in the state Senate, and Brantley Jr. was elected to the House of Representatives in 1958. A lifelong Democrat, Harvey courted the African-American vote at a time when race and segregation issues ripped at the fabric of the party, which had dominated South Carolina politics since Reconstruction.

    “My father helped me because he was respected and he worked with all kinds of people,” Harvey recalled in his memoirs, published in 2015. “That was my introduction to politics. I liked the people I met, and I loved public service. It was good to feel that I was doing something for my country and my state.”

    Harvey served in the House of Representatives until 1974, when he was elected lieutenant governor. In the same election cycle, Jim Edwards was elected governor, the first Republican to win that office since Reconstruction. Despite their different party affiliations, Harvey said he worked well with Edwards, who frequently sent him abroad to recruit business to South Carolina. 

    Harvey ran unsuccessfully for governor in 1978, garnering the most votes in the Democratic primary but losing in a runoff to Richard Riley, who went on to win the general election.

    Though that marked the end of his political career, the gubernatorial election was but a midpoint of his life in public service.

    As with education, Harvey’s impact on Beaufort County transportation is substantial. As a legislator, he helped remove the tolls from the bridges to Hilton Head and Fripp islands. Then, as a S.C. Department of Transportation commissioner, he was instrumental in obtaining the funding and approval for the Hilton Head Cross-Island Parkway, and the widening of U.S. 21 and U.S. 278. As organizing chairman of the Beaufort County Transportation Committee for almost eight years, he helped direct state gasoline-tax funds to improve and pave secondary roads throughout Beaufort County. 

    Harvey served on the Board of the Beaufort Marine Institute and, for a period, as its chairman. He held a leadership position with the Coastal Carolina Council of the Boy Scouts of America, for which he was awarded the Distinguished Service to Boyhood award. He helped create industrial parks in northern Beaufort County and in Yemassee. He has been a member of the Chamber of Commerce; the United Way; the Historic Beaufort Foundation; the Beaufort Orchestra (as a violinist); Beaufort Performing Arts Center; the Salvation Army; and Beaufort Rotary Club. He and Helen attended Beaufort's First Presbyterian Church, where he was ordained and served as an elder.

    Helen Harvey passed away in 2010.

    In 2012, Harvey married Alice Deforest Klatt, a longtime friend and ordained Lutheran minister who moved back to Beaufort after her husband’s death. The couple lived in Marshlands, a historic home in The Point that Harvey and Helen purchased in 1974.

                Beaufort, SC – May 24, 2018 - Something very old is new again at Beaufort’s famous Arsenal.  Beaufort History Museum, which occupies the second floor of the historic building, has completed the renovation of its Exhibit Hall and it is now open to the public.

    “Since 1939 we have been Beaufort’s history museum, “ said Larry Koolkin, a Director and Co-chairman of the Exhibits Committee.  “Coming home to the Arsenal has allowed us to ‘repaint the canvas’ and present our extensive collection, telling the 500-year history of the Beaufort District, in a fresh way that engages all ages.”

    HW Exhibits, a Charleston-based exhibit design firm, created the new design based on the Museum’s impressive collection of artifacts and images.  The firm, headed by Carol Poplin, the HW Exhibits Director, also handled the fabrication and installation of the exhibits.

    The Museum’s materials display history of the Beaufort District in storyboards organized into separate subject areas such as First People, European Exploration, Rice and Cotton, the Civil War, 20th Century Tourism and more

     There are three sections:

    •      Ecology – examining how Beaufort District’s history is tied to the region’s geography, climate, landscape and ecology
    •      Discovery and early settlement – exploring American Indian life ways through early exploration European settlement, the plantations era and the Civil War.
    •      Modernization and growth – focusing on 20th century industries such as oystering phosphates, the military, truck farming and tourism.

     “ This is a very exciting and important time for Beaufort and for the Museum.  We have come a long way but our journey has just begun,” Koolkin said. “ The new exhibit hall represents Phase I of the renovation.  Phase II, due to be completed next year, will include larger, centrally placed displays and visitor interaction enhanced with leading-edge technology.  We think visitors will embrace this chance to experience the history of our area and that they will especially enjoy our ‘user friendly’ approach.”

    The Arsenal address is 713 Craven Street. Normal BHM hours of operation are 10:00 am – 4:00 pm, Monday – Saturday. Docents are on duty to provide information and conduct tours. Please visit beauforthistorymuseum.com or the BHM Facebook page for updates and news from the Museum.

    Beaufort History Museum Poised to Debut New Exhibit Hall

    Beaufort, SC – April 18, 2018 – There is a growing sense of excitement around the historic Arsenal these days as Beaufort History Museum prepares to debut its newly renovated Exhibit Hall.   The long anticipated renovation is on schedule and poised to open to the public in time for the Memorial Day weekend, according to Larry Koolkin, a BHM Director and Co-chairman of the Exhibits Committee.  Koolkin says that completion of the project will mark the fruition of a dream that the Museum’s supporters have held for many years.

    “The Museum, founded in 1939, has been housed at many sites, finally coming home to The Arsenal in 2014,” Koolkin said.  “This is our chance to ‘repaint the canvas’ and present our extensive collection, which tells the 500-year history of the Beaufort District, in a fresh and compelling manner utilizing new technologies and a modern approach.”

    HW Exhibits, a Charleston-based exhibit design firm, was hired to create a cohesive theme, developing text and graphics based on the Museum’s collection of artifacts and images.  The firm, headed by Carol Poplin, the HW Exhibits Director, will also handle fabrication and installation.

    The long, narrow second floor space that houses the Museum was a primary consideration as Poplin and her team conceived their plan for the renovation.  “Beaufort History Museum has a certain charm but the unique configuration of the Exhibit Hall had to be considered when planning the traffic flow and the perceived usage by guests.” Poplin said. “Will they wander back and forth across the space?  Can they resume the chronological order once they are drawn to another section of the displays?  All of this had to be taken into consideration to make their visit enjoyable and encourage a sense of discovery.”

    The Museum’s materials are organized both chronologically and thematically.  The 13,000 year history of the area is displayed in storyboards and organized into discrete subject areas such as First People, European Exploration, Rice and Cotton, the Civil War, 20th Century Tourism and many more

    Thematically, Poplin said there are three sections:

    •      Ecology – examining how Beaufort District’s history is tied to the region’s geography, climate, landscape and ecology
    •       Discovery and early settlement – exploring American Indian lifeways through early exploration European settlement, the plantations era and the Civil War.
    •       Modernization and growth – focusing on 20th century industries such as oystering phosphates, the military, truck farming and tourism.

    When the new exhibit hall opens the interpretive displays will represent Phase I of the renovation.  Phase II, due to be completed next year, will include larger, centrally placed displays and visitor interaction enhanced with leading-edge technology.

    Koolkin said that the Museum will remain open until the setting up of the new Exhibit in early May, when it will close for a few weeks during the installation period.  The opening date will be announced once installation is complete.

    The Arsenal address is 713 Craven Street. Normal BHM hours of operation are 10:00 am – 4:00 pmMonday – Saturday. Docents are on duty to provide information and conduct tours. Please visit beauforthistorymuseum.com or the BHM Facebook page for updates and news from the Museum, including special discounted admission prices to celebrate the Renovation.

    Beaufort History Museum, in partnership with the Beaufort Branch Library, will present a lecture by Dr. Richard Porcher, Jr. which will focus on Dr. Henry Woodward, considered to be the first colonist in South Carolina and Beaufort’s first settler.  The talk is scheduled for 2 PM on Tuesday, April 3, 2018 at the Beaufort Branch Library, located at 311 Scott Street.        

                Following the lecture everyone will walk across the street to the historic Arsenal, home of the Museum, to the courtyard, where the Henry Woodward Chapter of the Colonial Dames 17thCentury will place a wreath on a monument to Woodward.   Refreshments will be served.  

                Admission to the lecture and wreath placement is free.  A donation of $5 is suggested and reservations are required.  To sign up visit the BHM website atwww.beauforthistorymuseum.com.

                Woodward’s story is a fascinating tale. He lived from 1646 -1687. He was South Carolina’s first doctor, learned several Indian languages and was known as an “ambassador” for the colonists to the Indians.   It is believed that through his friendship with the Indians, colonists were warned of the Spanish attack of 1670.  Woodward’s importance was such that the colony wouldn’t have survived without his influence.

                A professor emeritus at the Citadel and adjunct professor of biological sciences at Clemson University, Porcher is a dynamic speaker and respected author.  He has written Wildflowers of the Carolina Lowcountry and Lower Pee Dee and co-authored  A Guide to the Wildflowers of South Carolina (both published by the University of South Carolina Press) and The Story of Sea Island Cotton.

                 Porcher is a trustee of the South Carolina Nature Conservancy and on the board of directors of the Charleston Library Society, the Waring Library and the Carolina Rice Foundation.  He is the 2008 recipient of the South Carolina Environmental Awareness Award.
