Snow story in Clemson, approx 1954-58

My dad graduated in 58 and seems like he told the story of the students rolling a giant snowball out into the road by Bowman Field, I think. It was big enough to block traffic. A Clemson cop tried to move or ram it with his patrol car - unsuccessfully.

Any of you older alumni there from 54-58 or so know anything about this?

Also, if any of y'all are from that era, please Tmail me. I'm curious if you knew my dad. He was the commander of Pershing Rifles one year. Dairy Science major, Army ROTC. He passed away in 05 but I'd love to hear from someone who knew him at old Clemson College.

You might want to check out old THE TIGER newspaper articles shown online by Tiger Prints. If it happened at old Clemson College, there was usually a story about it in THE TIGER. I'm finding some amazing stuff in those old editions. If your dad commanded the PRs, you might find a story about him.

from 1967-1968, and the Clemson Library kept bound editions of all "The Tiger" papers in those days. Don't know if they have retained them or not. I've used the source you mentioned and had some big laughs at some of the events during my days at CU.

The paper, one of the oldest in the nation, was the main source of communication, not only on campus, but in the community, as well. It was one of the largest organizations, had a large suite of offices on the ninth floor above the Loggia, and was widely distributed early Friday mornings. It also garnered a number of top awards nationally and statewide and was used as a source by most all the major dailies and weeklies in S.C. and parts of N.C., including Charlotte.
