With a public service career spanning over 70 years, the speeches of Senator Strom Thurmond document the evolution of his thoughts, opinions, and philosophies in all of the public offices he held – State Senator, Circuit Judge, Governor, and U.S. Senator. His words are reflective of the times and of his unflagging support of his constituents. These speeches available online are only a small portion of the Strom Thurmond Collection.
