A HOUSE RESOLUTION

TO HONOR AND COMMEND DR. CYRIL SPANN ON THE OCCASION OF THE ADDITION OF THE DR. CYRIL O. SPANN MEDICAL OFFICE TO THE NATIONAL REGISTER OF HISTORIC PLACES AND ITS RECEPTION OF A HISTORICAL MARKER FROM THE SOUTH CAROLINA DEPARTMENT OF ARCHIVES AND HISTORY.

Whereas, the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives deem it absolutely fitting and proper to pause in their deliberations to recognize the honoring of a man who committed his life to the improvement of other's lives; and

Whereas, Dr. Cyril Spann, born in Chester, South Carolina, was known for his achievement of being the State's first trained African-American surgeon. He worked as chief of staff for Good Samaritan Waverly Hospital, but one of his most important successes was the integration of the downtown businesses in Columbia; and

Whereas, the Dr. Cryil O. Spann Medical Office was built in 1963. From 1963 until 1995, it was staffed with African-American physicians, including Drs. Stuart Hamilton, Burnett Gallman, Vera McBryde, Everett Dargan, Gerald Wilson, and Albert Reid; and

Whereas, due to the historic nature of the building, the medical office has received state-level approval for listing with the National Register of Historic Places. This local landmark will be further acknowledged by the placement of a historical marker from the South Carolina Department of Archives and History; and

Whereas, a celebration to unveil this historic marker will take place in fall 2019; and

Whereas, the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives are grateful for the life of service Dr. Spann provided the citizens of the Palmetto State and are grateful for this recognition of his accomplishments. Now, therefore,

Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:

That the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives, by this resolution, honor and commend Dr. Cyril Spann on the occasion of the addition of the Dr. Cryil O. Spann Medical Office to the National Register of Historic Places and its reception of a historical marker from the South Carolina Department of Archives and History.

Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to Tnovsa Global Commons.
