South Carolina Delegates to the U.S. Congress

88th U.S. Congress (1963-1964)

The 88th U.S. Congress met in two sessions: 1) January 9, 1963 to December 30, 1963; and 2) January 7, 1964 to October 3, 1964.

Due to the results of the 1960 U.S. Census, South Carolina was again authorized to send six (6) delegates to the U.S. House of Representatives. All South Carolina U.S. House Districts were probably redrawn and renumbered as of January 3, 1963.
