Commentary: Congressman’s wife had ‘heart of gold, spine of steel’

Editor’s note: Dr. Emily England Clyburn, wife of our state’s senior member of Congress, died Thursday in Columbia at age 80.
Clyburn, known to most as Ms. Emily, was born near Moncks Corner. She met Jim Clyburn, now the U.S. House majority whip, in jail when he was imprisoned for civil-rights activism while they were students at S.C. State College. They were married 58 years. This year they established the Dr. Emily England Clyburn Honors College Scholarship Endowment.
