On May 24, 2010, The Sugar and I went on a LibraryFest in Columbia, SC. One of the quests was to find a magazine article about John King Garnett. Sugar struck gold, we copied that little beaut, and now I am perplexed how to share it with you. I’m afraid I’ll have to transcribe the whole stinkin’ thing. In the meantime, here’s the scanned copies. The name of the magazine is “South Carolina Wildlife”, and the article is from November-December 2003, Vol. 50, No. 6.

Whether a visionary, a scalawag, or simply a man trying to make a living, John King Garnett left a vast legacy of wild lands between the Savannah and Coosawhatchee rivers.
