Biography

John William Thurmond was born on May 1, 1862 at Morgana, Meriwether Township, Edgefield County (one account calls this region Skipper's Georgia), the son of George Washington and Mary Jane (Felter) Thurmond. George Washington Thurmond served as a Corporal in the Confederate Army and was present at Appomattox when Lee surrendered to Grant. Although these records do not substantiate these facts, a bibliographic description states that J. William Thurmond attended Currytown Academy in Edgefield County and then attended South Carolina College for one year (now the University of South Carolina). He was awarded an honorary LL.D. on June 13, 1934 by the college. As a young man he taught school in Edgefield County, farmed, and read law under the Shepard brothers. He was admitted to the bar in January, 1888, and practiced law in Edgefield for forty-six years. On December 28, 1898, he married Eleanor Gertrude Strom, daughter of Dr. James Harrison and Martha (Reynolds) Strom. They had six children: John William, Jr. (September 5, 1900-November 9, 1984), James Strom (b. December 5, 1902), Anna Gertrude (b. December 26, 1904), Allan George (September 4, 1907-February 2, 1993), Martha (b. May 31, 1909), and Mary (b. May 31, 1909).

In 1888 J. William Thurmond was elected county attorney for Edgefield, and in 1893 he also became the county's supervisor of registration. In 1894 he was elected to the Sixty-first General Assembly of South Carolina and served from November 17, 1894 to March 7, 1896. He was then elected Solicitor of the Fifth Judicial Circuit (which included Columbia) in 1896 and was reelected in 1900, thus serving two terms until 1904. On March 24, 1897 Thurmond killed W.G. Harris, of Edgefield, in self-defense. In 1902 he was an unsuccessful candidate for the U.S. Congress. In 1904 he entered into a partnership with Carroll Johnson Ramage of Saluda (later Circuit Judge of the Eleventh Judicial Circuit), which continued until 1923 or 1924. President Woodrow Wilson appointed him U.S. District Attorney for the Western District of South Carolina, beginning April 2, 1915 and he held this position for six years. He had served at different times, too, as special judge and as special Associate Justice of the South Carolina Supreme Court, whenever necessary to replace an ailing or vacationing justice (specific dates not recorded), as well as in the office of president of the South Carolina Democratic State Convention in 1906.

Thurmond's Key Cases, published in 1930, was compiled as a result of this legal experience. He had a law partnership with William Lowndes Daniel from 1926-1931. In 1930, his son, J. Strom Thurmond, joined him in practice, although his son Strom had been associated with his father from 1923-1930. Thurmond was attorney for the South Carolina Power Company, the Savannah River Electric Company, and other concerns. He was a director of the Farmer's Bank of Edgefield (later the People's State Bank), and was active in fraternal, social and church affairs (Woodmen of the World, the Knights of Pythias, and the Baptist Church) John William Thurmond died on June 17, 1934.

Scope and Content Note

This series consists of two subseries: Personal and Legal. A folder-title list follows. The Legal subseries (Subseries A, 1894-1934; 7.2 cu. ft.) contains the records of J. William Thurmond's law practice which is divided into two sub-subseries: cases (with index), and law correspondence. This section originally included material relating to the Key Cases publication, and agricultural ledgers, but these have been removed and placed in his Personal subseries. The sympathy letters, telegrams, cards, etc. received by Thurmond's family after his death have been removed from this subseries.

The records dating prior to the start of Thurmond's practice are recordings of wills and mortgages. Other early dates are records handled by other attorneys before Thurmond became involved in the cases. These records concern only his private law practice.

The cases, 1913-1934, were originally indexed by number. However, they have been rearranged to be in alphabetical order by case name (name of plaintiff) and chronologically within each case. A rough alphabetical index, dated 1930-1934, maintained by J. William Thurmond is filed at the beginning of the cases. The cases deal primarily with railroad companies, the South Carolina Highway Department, insurance companies, lumber companies, coal and granite companies, industrial and other accidents; industries such as International Harvester, Pure Oil, Standard Oil, and Gulf Oil Refining Company; and typical legal matters such as bankruptcy, divorce, estates, foreclosures, loans, murder, and wills. Correspondents include James F. Byrnes, W. K. Charles, Thomas Benjamin Greneker, Calhoun Mays, Carroll Johnson Ramage, George Bell Timmerman, and Charles Cecil Wyche. Cases of special interest include the Mrs. Sallie Tillman estate and the McKie v. McKie murder case.

The law correspondence, 1923-1934 with selected items from 1881, 1894, 1896, 1908, and 1914, consists of nine folders, filed alphabetically, then chronologically within each letter of the alphabet. It contains correspondence between Thurmond and other attorneys and individuals about cases and typical legal subjects, such as alimony, child custody, mortgages, etc. It also contains fragments of cases not listed in the index to the cases listed above. There are small amounts of personal requests concerning naturalization, securing pardons or paroles, and genealogy, and on-going correspondence about orders for farm products and supplies for Thurmond's farm tenants. Also present is a great deal of political correspondence and a brief biographical sketch of the Thurmond family. Important correspondents include L. G. Bell, Eugene Satterwhite Blease, Edgar Allen Brown, W. K. Charles, John Daniel, Herbert Hoover, Thomas Gordon McLeod, the firm Nicholls, Wyche, and Byrnes, E. D. (Ellison DuRant) Smith, George Bell Timmerman, and Millard E. Tydings.

The Personal subseries (Subseries B, 1912-1934; .45 cu. ft.) consists of two sub-subseries: agricultural ledgers containing accounts of individuals who had rented farm land from Thurmond and Key Case material. The agricultural ledgers are arranged chronologically. The records reflect Thurmond's detailed accounts of each tenant transaction regarding rent payments, charges for food, household, and farm supplies, and crop yields. After his death, Thurmond's widow and sons continued to manage the accounts.

Key Cases material is arranged chronologically.  Thurmond's Key Cases was published in 1930. The book is a compendium of South Carolina laws and has two supplements. One copy of the book and its supplements is included here, as well as chronological lists of names of individuals who ordered the book along with an accounting of payment, a geographic list of South Carolina cities and the names of those ordered the book, a second geographic list detailing each individual's payment and, finally, letter and post card order forms, arranged alphabetically. There is some personal correspondence with the R. L. Bryan Company, ordering supplies and giving instructions about Thurmond's manuscript printing for Thurmond's Key Cases. (See also: Strom Thurmond, Personal Series, 1923-1946, for two folders of Key Cases correspondence). As executor of his father's estate, Strom Thurmond wrote to all those from whom payment had not been received. Many of these individuals had difficulty paying for the book because of the depressed economic situation at that time.

A scrapbook containing certificates received before, during, and after John William Thurmond's legal and political career was obtained on loan from the Thurmond Senate Office in Aiken, South Carolina and filmed during 1998. The scrapbook has been returned to the Thurmond Family. The microfilm reproduction of the scrapbook and photographs of each certificate are listed below in the Separation List.
