Harry S. Dent papers by Harry S Dent( Archival Material )
in English and held by 1 library worldwide
The Harry S. Dent Papers contain affidavits, articles, artifacts, audiocassettes, book drafts (first drafts and later), clippings, correspondence, a DVD, financial documents, fliers, legal documents, maps, minutes, newsletters, page proofs, photographs, scrapbooks, sermons, speeches, transcripts, videocassettes, and other items spanning the period from 1913-2007 with the bulk of the material dating from 1966 to 1995. The collection documents his role as Chairman of the South Carolina Republican Party; his work for President Richard M. Nixon's administration as Deputy/Special Counsel; his legal career after his departure from the White House staff; his tenure as Director of the Billy Graham Lay Center from 1982-1985; and his Baptist evangelical work with his wife Betty through their lay ministry Laity Alive and Serving, including missions to the Cluj-Napoca region of Romania and Dent's chairmanship of the Billy Graham Crusade held in Columbia, S.C. in 1987. There is also material on the Watergate scandal and his peripheral involvement in it; his service as a trustee to the Baptist Theological Seminary (Louisville, Ky.); his involvement in the Health Investment Group, Inc.; and the writing of his books, "Prodigal south returns to power," "Layman looks through the Bible of God's will," "Cover up: the Watergate in all of us," and "Right vs. wrong: solutions to the American nightmare." Aside from the scrapbooks, there is very little in the papers concerning Dent's personal life and career prior to becoming South Carolina Republican Party chairman in 1965. Among the items of interest in the collection are the White House files relating to the run-up to the 1972 Presidential election, including information about the other two candidates, George McGovern and George Wallace. The Personal series has material relating to the 1976 and 1980 presidential elections; the latter includes both George Bush's primary campaign and Ronald Reagan's general election campaign. The Legal series documents his work with the South Carolina Association for the Deaf (particularly Barnes v. Converse College) and the South Carolina Healthcare Association (mainly legal work for nursing homes), as well as the Wagdy Demian case which highlights the internal working of the South Carolina Department of Social Services. In the "Laity: Alive and Serving" series one can not only find an oral history on the Graham Crusade conducted by the Billy Graham Center at Wheaton College, Ill. (the Crusade material in this series supplements that held by Center) but Dent's research on the role of the laity in the church; his development of materials to teach about God and the Bible and his extensive teaching schedule; his role in creating a "sister city" relationship between Columbia and Cluj-Napoca, including working with Columbia's mayor, Bob Coble; and his promotion of character education in secondary school. This series also documents the often contentious transition from a moderate to conservative administration and Board of Trustees for the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, including controversies over the theological stances of President Roy Lee Honeycutt and faculty members E. Glenn Hinson, Molly Marshall-Green, and Paul Simmons. Other topics covered in the Dent Papers include U.S. and Southern politics; the Nixon administration; the history of the national and South Carolina Republican Parties; the 1970 and 1972 political campaigns for the U.S. House; the textile industry in South Carolina and the United States; state and federal laws concerning the deaf, especially regarding accessibility in higher education; and state and federal laws regarding nursing homes. There is also some material relating to state legislator Sol Blatt, his political colleagues Lee Atwater and J. Fred Buzhardt, Jr. as well as former employers Richard M. Nixon and Strom Thurmond. Correspondents include Vice President Spiro Agnew; evangelists Bill Barton, Leighton Ford, Billy Graham, John Guest, and Josef Tson; White House staff members Ken Belieu, Gordon Brownell, Alexander Butterfield, Dwight Chapin, Charles Colson, John Ehrlichman, Peter Flanigan, Jack Gleason, H.R. Haldeman, Bryce Harlow, Jeb Stuart Magruder, and Peter Millspaugh; U.S. Presidents George H.W. Bush, Gerald Ford, Richard Nixon, and Ronald Reagan; South Carolina governors Carroll Campbell and James B. Edwards; Dent's wife Betty; Republican Party operatives James Duffy; business leaders Jack Eckerd (founder of Eckerd Drugs), Roger Milliken, and Darla Moore; Senators Barry Goldwater, and Strom Thurmond; the Health Investment Group, Inc.; religious scholar E. Glenn Hinson; Roy Lee Honeycutt and R. Albert Mohler, presidents of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Ky.; Greg Horton, 1991 President of the South Carolina Baptist Convention; J. Robertson McQuilkin, President of Columbia Bible College (now Columbia International University) in Columbia, S.C.; the National Center for Law and the Deaf, Gallaudet University, Washington, D.C.; the South Carolina Association of the Deaf; the South Carolina Healthcare Association; Alastair Walker, formerly pastor of the First Baptist Church of Spartanburg, S.C.; General William Westmoreland; Congressman Ed Young; and Dr. Gregore Zanc, Professor of Philosophy and Prefect of Cluj-Napoca
