President Bill Clinton to Honor Former Governor Richard Riley at USC’s S.C. Political Collections Event

The South Carolina Political Collections — one of the largest political collections in the nation — will expand Aug. 6, when the University of South Carolina opens the Richard W. Riley Collection. To celebrate the collection’s opening, Riley has invited President Bill Clinton, for whom he served as a cabinet officer, to deliver special remarks at a private opening event that will feature invited university and government officials and special guests.

The collection, the culmination of five years of curation, details the life and public career of Richard Wilson “Dick” Riley, a former South Carolina state representative, senator and governor, and U.S. Secretary of Education. Riley is a named partner at Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP.

“As a former South Carolina governor and state legislator, I am so proud to have my collection housed at one of the state’s premier public institutions of higher learning, the University of South Carolina, where I also graduated from the School of Law,” Riley says. “USC is a prestigious university, and its Hollings Special Collections Library is a jewel. The library’s political collections are an outstanding repository of documents that provide valuable, historical information about South Carolina’s leaders, government, and political activities at the local, state, and national levels.”
