When he was nineteen, he taught high school in Union Country for four years and then taught in New Albany, Mississippi for two years. In 1907, Mr. Hall received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Mississippi, and he would later receive his master’s degree from the same school in 1925. In May of 1916, he became a professor and head of the Department of Social Science at the University of Southern Mississippi (Mississippi Normal College at the time). Mr. Hall remained at USM until his retirement in 1940 after twenty-four years. S.C. Hall married Blanche Ernest and they had three children.
