A former U.S. Attorney and University of South Carolina graduate will join his alma mater to help with alumni relations, fundraising and development, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce-sponsored LegalNewsLine.com reported Tuesday.
Henry McMaster, who was the Columbia-based U.S. Attorney from 1981 to 1985, will be a senior adviser at the college. He received his undergraduate degree from the University of South Carolina in 1969 and a degree from its law school in 1973.
“Henry McMaster is an established and recognized leader who brings a wealth of experience and contacts with USC alumni, donors and friends,” Michelle Dodenhoff, University of South Carolina vice president for development and alumni relations, said in a statement. “His assistance will be invaluable.”
McMaster previously served as South Carolina attorney general from 2003 to 2011. He had an unsuccessful bid for the state’s Republican gubernatorial nomination in 2010.
