Richard T. Greener

Larger than life

Richard T. Greener’s larger-than-life story is one of academic achievement, professional success and civic service, played out mostly in the tumultuous years after the Civil War. It’s a story of firsts — in addition to being USC’s first black professor, Greener was also Harvard’s first black graduate and America’s first black diplomat to a country of white citizenry.

Christopher Wach planned to make a career in military, but injuries sustained in Afghanistan earned him two Purple Hearts and a medical discharge. He was able to find a second home and a new career path at the University of South Carolina.
