The Amazing Mayor Grace
Evening Post Books’ “Charleston Reader Series” presents a comprehensive story of Grace and his times: “The Amazing Mayor Grace: John P. Grace and the Making of Modern Charleston, 1874-1940.”
In the early 1900s, John Patrick Grace was the most important figure in Charleston politics. People all over South Carolina grew to either love him or hate him. He was a shrewd Irish-American Catholic political organizer in a state dominated by rural Protestants. He was known as a skilled trial lawyer, a fiery newspaper editor, and a public official who could get things done, such as bringing the Charleston waterfront under municipal ownership.
