Magnifying Glass What is this document?

Descriptive Summary

Abstract: Esther Kaplan Pivnick (1913-2001), a former patternmaker from New York, retired on Johns Island, South Carolina in the mid-1970s. Along with historian Elizabeth "Betty" Stringfellow, she embarked on an ambitious project to write an inclusive history of Johns Island, (the largest barrier island in South Carolina, approximately thirty miles south of Charleston), and incorporating the adjoining islands of Edisto, Wadmalaw, Kiawah and Seabrook. Their goal was to write a "peoples' history" of white and African-American island residents stressing the rich cultural heritage of the Sea Islands, highlighting Stringfellow's ancestors, the Andells. While the joint effort was never completed, Stringfellow eventually authored A Place Called St. John's with historian Laylon Wayne Jordan, published in 1998.
This collection contains extensive materials which informed Pivnick and Stringfellow's research for a proposed book with the working title of, "Immigrants, Carpetbaggers: South Carolinians: A Particular History of the Andell Family on Johns Island, South Carolina (1865-1932)." The majority of the collection contains photocopied documents, notes and interview transcripts created and/or collected in the research of the book: typescripts; handwritten and typed notes; photocopies of letters, legal documents, book excerpts and journal essays, newspaper and magazine articles; transcripts of oral histories; genealogical charts, maps, spanning the Native American origins of the Islands to the 20th century. Included are documents relating the Civil War battles on Johns Island; family histories of both plantation owners and African-Americans, education on the Island after the Civil War, including the work of the Freedmen's Bureau and their teachers; and cassette audio recordings of Pivnick and Stringfellow lectures and discussions on Johns Island history.

Biographical/Historical Note

Esther Beatrice Kaplan Pivnick (1913-2001), a graduate of Brooklyn College with a degree in Biology (1933). After working with her father Charles Kaplan, a garment design teacher in the New York City public schools, Esther taught patternmaking at the Traphagen School of Fashion. She also worked on Seventh Avenue (New York's garment district) as a patternmaker, assistant designer and production assistant. Pivnick authored How to Make Beautiful Clothes (1949); and Fundamentals of Patternmaking for Women's Apparel, Book I and II,(1955, 1958). Married to Harold Pivnick, a physician, the couple relocated to Johns Island, South Carolina from Cold Spring Harbor, New York in the 1970s. Inspired by the natural habitat of her new Lowcountry home, Pivnick conceived the Seabrook Island Natural History Group (SINHG). Pivnick met local historian, Elizabeth (Betty) Stringfellow through SINHG. The women eventually planned work on an book which would tell the history of Stringfellow's family, the Andells, with a historical and cultural narrative of the former St. John's Parish.

Elizabeth Stringfellow (1920-) was born on Seabrook Island to William and Marie Andell Hamilton. Her great-uncle Charles "Charlie" Andell, an German immigrant, was the first Andell to seek his fortune in land ownership on Seabrook Island in 1868. In 1876, his brother William (Stringfellow's grandfather), left New York City to locate Charles and found opportunity on the island. By 1880, the William Andell family became major property owners of approximately 4,000 acres known as the Andell Bluff Plantation. The property encompassed the entire Seabrook Island and part of the southern part of Johns Island. Known for its Sea Island Cotton and cattle ranching, the land remained in the family throughout the majority of the 20th century.
