Washington D.C. was never considered home for Congressman W.J. Bryan Dorn. For Dorn, home was always Greenwood, South Carolina. His family lived in the Barratt Home, built in 1855, and bought by Dorn’s father in the 1930’s. Several colleagues and family members discuss their days with W.J. Bryan Dorn.
When Dorn ended his career in congress to pursue South Carolina’s governor seat, it was expected to sweep the election, but ultimately lost, producing the most bizarre election in South Carolina’s history.
