Personal

 Series
Personal papers, 1976 to 2011, consist of materials related to Hendricks’ life outside of his legislative career. These include materials from his political campaigns, his early career in banking, and his activities as President and CEO of the South Carolina Bankers Association. The SCBA subseries forms the bulk of this series and documents Hendricks’ various activities as head of the SCBA, including sharing news with members, supporting the association’s educational efforts, responding to circumstances impacting the banking industry in South Carolina (e.g. Hurricane Hugo), and, most notably, lobbying.

Within the SCBA subseries, documents concerning lobbying activities can be found in the Government Relations subseries. Files within this subseries include drafts of pending legislation, as well as research materials and correspondence related to pending legislation and other issues important to the banking industry. A small number of file folders that were annotated by Hendricks provide insight into his activities as SCBA president and have been retained in the collection. Two of the three issues that Hendricks listed as being of greatest importance during his tenure as SCBA President and CEO – interstate banking and the effective repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act, which allowed commercial banks to engage in a wider range of business activities than they had been able to since the early 1930s – are relatively well-documented in this series, as well as in the Speeches series.
