Historic Clemson Photos #41 - Tank on campus

I'm pleased to present today's Historic Clemson Photo, submitted by long time TigerNet member Mintaka®.

These historic posts will each have a sponsor with a very brief video message. After playing, the update and photos will replace the video.

Thank you very much, and enjoy! --Crump and B-Meist

It's not everyday that you see a woman eating an ice cream cone in a tank at Death Valley. At first I thought she was in a manhole or something, but that is, in fact, a tank turret.

After doing a little research, I did find that there was a light tank rolling around campus in the early 50s, as seen below in the photo with this Lieutenant.

Here we see the Armor ROTC unit on campus taking delivery of the light tank. Now that
is what you call the ultimate tailgating vehicle.
