Humanizing Teaching: Pat Conroy and the Transformative Power of Teachers
Drawn from materials in the Pat Conroy Archive at the University of South Carolina Libraries, this exhibit explores Pat Conroy as a lifelong teacher and learner. Beginning with Conroy’s time as a student at Beaufort High School during his Junior and Senior years, moving to journals and letters he wrote during his time teaching on Daufuskie and finally, highlighting addresses and writings from his career as a bestselling author where he advocated for teachers, this exhibit demonstrates how much Conroy admired, encouraged and championed educators and educational equality.
Curated by Jessica Crouch, Pat Conroy Archivist, USC Libraries
