Scabbard and Blade

Scabbard and Blade is a military honor society established in 1904.  Wofford received a charter for M company, 6th regiment of Scabbard and Blade in 1928.  Wofford’s chapter was open to junior and senior members of ROTC, and members were chosen solely on merit.  A cadet who was chosen for Scabbard and Blade had qualities of leadership and honor, according to descriptions in several yearbooks.

I've been the archivist of Wofford College and the South Carolina United Methodist since 1999. I'll be sharing college, Methodist, and local history, documents, photographs, and other interesting stories on this blog, which I've been keeping since December 2007.
