Photograph of a Winthrop College Classroom | History of SC Slide Collection

This 1974 photograph of a Winthrop College classroom illustrates many of the changes in higher education that occurred in South Carolina in the late 1960s. The College had become co-educational, and was open to African-American as well as white students. A greater informality both in instruction and dress reflected student reaction against rigid rules and curriculum.
