COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- The University of South Carolina is planning a celebration to mark the release of a final volume of an anthology describing the contributions of the state's women.
The school has scheduled a reception Thursday in the Hollings Library to honor the release of the last installment of "South Carolina Women: Their Lives and Times." It's edited by university historians Marjorie Spruill and Valinda Littlefield and Joan Marie Johnson of Northeastern Illinois University.
South Carolina Supreme Court Chief Justice Jean Toal is expected at the reception, as is Alice Delk Ray, who with her sister worked in the Charleston Naval Yard as a welder during World War II.
A book signing will follow a book discussion, and copies of the volumes will be available for sale.
