From 1914 to 1916, Blackwood served as a tax collector for the Internal Revenue Service after which he became the solicitor for the Seventh Judicial Circuit of South Carolina. Blackwood won a contested Democratic primary in 1930 to become the 97th governor of South Carolina.

A major strike in 1934 by the majority of textile workers in the state forced Governor Blackwood to call up the National Guard.
