9781570039690: Myrtle Beach: A History, 1900-1980

A relatively young city, Myrtle Beach has quickly earned an international reputation as a tourism mecca on the South Carolina coast, yet no comprehensive history of the community's quick rise to prominence existed until now. Public historian Barbara F. Stokes fills in the blanks as she maps the development of the Grand Strand's centerpiece in this account of the historical, economic, climatic, and cultural forces that shaped Myrtle Beach.

Illustrated with forty-two photographs, this narrative history of Myrtle Beach tells the most complete story to date of how a sleepy coastal farming region grew into an internationally renowned tourist destination.

From the Back Cover:

"Here at last is a book-length history of Myrtle Beach, documented with wide reading in state and municipal documents, newspapers, and private papers; filled with rare photographs and other illustrations; and liberally spiced with quotes from the wonderful oral history interviews conducted by Catherine Lewis, Sarah Bryan, and others."--Charles Joyner, Burroughs Distinguished Professor of Southern History and Culture, Coastal Carolina University

"Myrtle Beach, A History, 1900-1980 resonates with enduring value for this beloved resort, now a sophisticated city. Broadly researched and written in clear, meticulous style, this volume triggers nostalgic memories yet delves deeper to reveal Myrtle Beach's extraordinary history. Barbara F. Stokes has written a superb book, gracefully chronicling people and events that shaped Myrtle Beach. It is the ultimate beach read."--Susan Hoffer McMillan, author of Myrtle Beach and the Grand Strand

From the Inside Flap:
