The College of Library and Information Science of the University of South Carolina is proud to reintroduce Mary E. Frayser to South Carolina and to libraries and librarians everywhere. Miss Frayser was a woman whose determined hard work was largely responsible for the nationally recognized public library system South Carolina enjoys today.
