  • Born on June 16, 1871, Alexander S. Salley, Class of 1892, assumed the position of secretary, treasurer and librarian at the South Carolina Historical Society in Charleston, a private organization concerned with the preservation of the state’s past, on October 1, 1899. 

In 1905 the General Assembly passed a bill providing funding for a full-time secretary for the State Historical Commission, making the agency responsible for all state public records. Salley began as that secretary on April 1, 1905. For the next 45 years, Salley organized, filed and wrote about South Carolina’s documentary heritage, the beginning of what is now the South Carolina Department of Archives and History.
