Biographical / Historical

Dr. David English Camak was born near Winnsboro, South Carolina in 1880. He founded the Textile Industrial Institute in Spartanburg County, which later became known as the Spartanburg Junior College and is now Spartanburg Methodist College. The institute was originally established in the Spartan Mill Village and its mission was to provide an opportunity of higher education for students by allowing them to alternate between working one week and attending school the next. Dr. Camak served as the pastor of Duncan United Methodist Church and is the author of two books. Upon his retirement he relocated to Greer, South Carolina and he died in 1967.
