Winter in Midsummer

An exhibit of sketches recorded by S.C. State Geologist, Oscar M. Lieber (1830-1862) while serving as a member of the United States Coastal Survey. An exotic landscape of glaciers and rugged highlands illustrate Lieber's account of his voyage and time in the field. The Manuscripts Division of the South Caroliniana Library preserves both Lieber's journal of daily entries and an edited manuscript version completed following his return from the expedition.
