In 1986, architect Glenn Keyes opened his preservation-focused practice, Glenn Keyes Architects, in Charleston, South Carolina. Since then, Keyes and his team have been behind the preservation of some of the city’s most iconic buildings, from the Charleston City Market to the Nathaniel-Russell House. Today even the skyline bears evidence of his work. What sets Charleston apart from other historic cities? Charleston feels as much like a European city as it gets in America, in large part due to the historic district—it’s the oldest established district in the country. Members of the community have been actively engaged in preservation since the 1920s, and that engagement is only growing with time. Efforts were originally focused on buildings South of Broad, but they’re moving north now, into Hampton Park Terrace and Wagener Terrace. You’ve been…

southern original

Spend time in South Carolina’s Santee Delta with Phil Wilkinson, and you begin to wonder if his blood runs brown like the Santee River itself. A renowned wildlife biologist, Wilkinson, eighty-six, is a product of place, shaped not only by the elemental forces that combine to create the largest river delta on the Eastern Seaboard, located just north of Charleston, but also by that region’s people. Wilkinson’s first outdoor mentor was an elderly African American man he called Daddy Ben, who gave him his first coonhound and entrusted the young boy with a lifetime of wisdom gleaned from the woods and water. Often the two could be found in the wee hours, trailing the hounds through the thickest of cover or sharing meals by the hearth. Wilkinson also swapped stories with…

a wildly good book

If Phil Wilkinson and the Santee are topics you’d like to explore further, I highly recommend Seven Days on the Santee Delta (Evening Post Books, $60). Coauthored by John Lane, the recently released book, framed as seven separate adventures through the Delta, follows Wilkinson as he visits places that shaped him and his career. A talented photographer, Wilkinson also contributes a wealth of images he’s taken along the way. It’s the next best thing to roaming around the Delta with the biologist himself.…

Jon Meacham WRITER After growing up along Missionary Ridge in Chattanooga and passing his college days on the Cumberland Plateau at the University of the South, Jon Meacham spent two decades as a writer and editor in Washington, D.C., and New York City. But like many Southerners, he felt the pull of home. Now based in Nashville, the Pulitzer Prize–winning author has written seven books spanning presidential profiles, the religious faith of the founding fathers, and the ways music has played a role in American history. For “Southern Stand” (p. 36), he returns to a topic close to his heart: the future of the South. “I write about the South for the same reason I respire,” he says. “It’s innate and essential.” Alice Gao PHOTOGRAPHER “I write about the South for the same reason I…

CHARLESTON’S CHOPS I have been a subscriber ever since I purloined a copy from my doctor’s office many years ago.

Your issue will be my guide. Lou Hiers Alpharetta, Georgia Your last issue makes me proud to live in Charleston.
