Carroll Campbell

By: Maggie & Marie


Carroll Ashmore Campbell Junior was born in Greenville, SC July 24, 1940. Carroll attended public schools such as Greenville High, MaCallie School, and University of South Carolina. Campbell was, at one time or another, a real estate broker, a farmer, a businessman, but most importantly, he was a politician. At the age of thirty, Campbell began serving in the House of Representatives, and his political career skyrocketed. Described by many as “hardworking”, “devoted to his state and country” and “conscientious”. It is easy to see how he soared from rank to rank, serving not only in the House of Representatives, but also served in the South Carolina Senate and eventually became the Governor of South Carolina.

His hard work and leadership inspired a respect in many people that grew when Campbell announced in 2001 that he was diagnosed with the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease. Campbell’s bravery and determination to defeate his disease led to the building of Carroll Campbell Place, the premier treatment center of Alzheimer’s disease in South Carolina. “I pray that my hope in these circumstances can uplift the many people in our state and country similarly afflicted.” Carroll Campbell is still living today in Fountain Inn, South Carolina.
