I just received a copy of the July 29 story stating that the Fraser family had refused to cooperate in the showing of a documentary on the seminal work of the late Charles Fraser.
The idea that anyone, especially Charles' family members, would stand in the way of a public documentary illustrating the important work that Charles and the early Sea Pines team members accomplished is chilling.
I am sure I speak for my friend John McGrath, who was Charles' executive vice president and his classmate at Yale Law School, when I say we stand ready to attest to Charles' work and would be only too happy to share our memories of Sea Pines' beginnings with the public, either through The Packet, or through imaginNATION 2013 and the Hilton Head Island Institute.
I served as vice president of marketing and public relations from 1959 to mid-1963 and was one of the fortunate young men whose careers were forged in the brilliance of Charles' early days at Sea Pines.
