This article provides information on Clarendon County, South Carolina. This is the county, where three federal judges told Summerton school officials to move toward the elimination of racial bars to school administration but set no time limit on its accomplishment. The county is 20 to 30 miles in length north and south, slightly larger facing east and west. It is an agricultural county where tobacco and cotton are the main crops, but where timber also supplies a steady source of income. There are few industries here. The population of the county is slightly more than 32,000, and 23,000 of the population is Negro.
