Three mornings a week, Paul Franklin drives from downtown Charleston to James Island to make a very special delivery – Dr. Curtis Worthington.
Despite his 85 years, the good doctor still spends his days in the Waring Historical Library at the Medical University of South Carolina, one of the most important collections in the country.
