This week Walter Edgar's Journal focuses on Greenville and the Upstate of South Carolina. Walter’s guest is Dr. A. V. Huff, Professor Emeritus of History at Furman University.

Link:A History of Greenville and the Upstate - A. V. Huff

If you want to learn about the downtown revitalization starting in the 70's, you can go to minute 35:00 or so.

They talk about "The Father of Greenville," Mayor Max Heller, a European-born Jewish Holocaust survivor and his progressive efforts that have resulted in the downtown Greenville we all know and love today.

They also discuss the many private/public investments that have paid off so well for the area, especially downtown and ICAR.
