REQUESTING THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION TO DESIGNATE AND NAME A PORTION OF HIGHWAY 17 IN BEAUFORT AND COLLETON COUNTIES THE "W. BRANTLEY HARVEY HIGHWAY" FOR THE LATE SENATOR WILLIAM BRANTLEY HARVEY AND FURTHER REQUESTING THE DEPARTMENT TO INSTALL APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS.
Whereas, William Brantley Harvey was born in Hampton, served in the navy in World War I, and graduated from the University of South Carolina with honors in 1923, receiving B.S. and LL.B degrees simultaneously; and
Whereas, he practiced law in Beaufort until shortly before his death in 1981; he served in the South Carolina House of Representatives from 1924-28 and was State Senator from Beaufort from 1928-52; and
Whereas, Senator Harvey was chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, the Education Committee, and the Fish and Game Committee; he was also president of the Beaufort County Bar, and in 1952, he was president of the South Carolina Bar; he rendered public and community service in countless other ways and was known for his devotion to his family and for his humanitarian qualities; and
Whereas, the General Assembly considers it highly appropriate and fitting that the portion of Highway 17 extending from Gardens Corner in Beaufort County to Jacksonboro in Colleton County be designated and named the "W. Brantley Harvey Highway" in tribute to this greatly distinguished South Carolinian and public servant, William Brantley Harvey so that his numberless acts of service and humanitarianism may be recognized and commemorated. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina, by this resolution, requests the Department of Transportation to designate and name the above described portion of Highway 17 in Beaufort and Colleton counties the "W. Brantley Harvey Highway" for the late Senator William Brantley Harvey and to install appropriate markers or signs reflecting such designation.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the South Carolina Department of Transportation.
