"S" is for Stoney, Samuel Gaillard (1891-1968). Architect, author, historian, preservationist. Stoney is considered by many to be the quintessential Charlestonian. After graduating with a degree in architecture from Georgia Tech, he worked in Atlanta and New York. In 1933 he began a frank love affair with his native city. President of the South Carolina Historical Society, the Preservation Society, and other organizations, Stoney helped document the city’s past while fighting to save much of its architecture.
