We are pleased by the resolution of the S.C. House of Representatives to honor Dr. Clyde Wilson for his tireless and peerless work over the course of a lifetime defending what is good and pure of the Southern tradition and of Calhoun’s work.
A HOUSE RESOLUTION TO CONGRATULATE DR. CLYDE WILSON, PROFESSOR EMERITUS OF HISTORY AT THE UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH CAROLINA, FOR A LIFETIME OF PRESERVING AND DEFENDING SOUTHERN HISTORY AND TRADITION AND FOR HIS SEMINAL WORK ON JOHN C. CALHOUN. – June 8th, 2021
Dr. Wilson is not only the preeminent Calhoun scholar alive, and perhaps ever to live, his writing and speeches related to the permanent things provided a necessary linkage to the great minds of a past generation but also inspired innumerable new thinkers that have carried on the tradition. And despite those he has inspired, ‘they simply do not make more of his ilk’.
Well deserved Sir, we wish you health and happiness, and joy in this recognition. We can never thank you enough for your inspiration and assistance with our project here and the other efforts you have been such a key figure in.
