About The Charles E. Fraser Visiting Associates Lecture Series

In 1992, the Charles Fraser Endowment was established though an initial gift of $50,000 from Santee-Cooper.  The fund stated "Charles Fraser and his remarkable development of Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, established an international model for his visionary integration of man and nature through community design.  His influence is evident in communities in Asia, Europe, and throughout North and South Carolina."

Mr. Fraser not only developed property, he developed people.  Members of his entourage are affectionately known as "Charlie's Angels". 

Because of the generous donations to the endowment, we are privileged to host lectures each year.  Speakers are some of the most prominent and highly respected individuals in their respective fields.  Many of them are "Charlie's Angels".
