Anthony Hart Harrigan

Anthony Hart Harrigan (1925 - 2010) was a conservative columnist, lecturer, and author.[1] He was an editor of the News and Courier in Charleston, South Carolina and had a syndicated column.

His father was Anthony Hart Harrigan Sr., a doctor in New York City, and his grandfather was actor and playwright Edward Harrigan.[2]

Harrigan wrote about various topics including Rhodesia, South Africa, Viet Nam, the media, and freedom of speech. He edited a book of collected writings from conservative Courier newspaperman William Watts Ball.

He married Elizabeth Ravenel and had 4 children.[2][3]

One of his columns was a scathing attack on Paul B. Zuber and James Baldwin in 1964, calling them hard core leftists and Communists while stating that insurrectionists did not just emerge from the sewers in a day.[4]

He was an editor at the Courier from 1956 until 1970.[5]

The South Carolina Historical Society[6] and University of Wyoming have collections of his and his family's papers including correspondence with Republican Party politicians, columns, and documents related to his family history.[7]

His work has been described as pseudo-scientific racism.[8]
