The committee on House Invitations and Memorial Resolutions
To who was referred a Concurrent Resolution (H. 4207) to request the Department of Transportation name the intersection located at the junction of South Carolina Highway 187 and South Carolina Highway 29 in Anderson, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same, and recommend that the same do pass:
DENNIS MOSS for Committee.
A concurrent RESOLUTION
to request the department of transportation name the intersection located at the junction of south carolina highway 187 and south carolina highway 29 in anderson county "paul robinson earle memorial intersection" and erect appropriate markers or signs at this intersection containing this designation.
Whereas, the Honorable Paul Robinson Earle was born October 20, 1878, on Evergreen Plantation in Greenville County, the youngest of eleven children from the union of Reverend Julius Richard Earle and Lucy Ann Margaret Brockman; and
Whereas, he attended Clemson College (Clemson University) from 1893-1894, then Gibson-Mercer College (Mercer University) in Macon, Georgia, from 1896 to 1898; and
Whereas, Mr. Earle was united in marriage to Mary Rebecca Edwards of Winterville, Georgia, on October 27, 1904, and they became the parents of a son and two daughters. A farmer, he lived in the Savannah Township area of Anderson County for some sixty years; and
Whereas, an excellent marksman, Mr. Earle's name and hometown were known far and wide for his skills, and he had numerous trophies to show for his efforts. As a member of the United States Trap Shooting team, he competed in the 1924 Olympic Games in Paris, France. He also won the Southern Amateur handicap trap shooting tournament in Atlanta on May 27, 1933; and
Whereas, a well-known and respected citizen, he was elected to the South Carolina House of Representatives, serving a single term from 1933-1934. Mr. Earle passed away on June 26, 1952, at the venerable age of 73, in the Savannah Township area where he spent most of his life and was laid to rest in the Shiloh Baptist Church cemetery in Starr; and
Whereas, it is only fitting and proper that members of the General Assembly recognize the life and legacy of the Honorable Paul Robinson Earle by naming an intersection in Anderson County in his memory. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the South Carolina General Assembly, by this resolution, request the Department of Transportation name the intersection located at the junction of South Carolina Highway 187 and South Carolina Highway 29 in Anderson County "Paul Robinson Earle Memorial Intersection" and erect appropriate markers or signs at this intersection containing this designation.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation.
