My aunt recently passed away, and I found this picture in one of her albums.It may be from the 40's at Clemson when my dad was a student......I think from the uniform this may be a professor........any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks!!

It could also be Bowen Hall on the frat quad.

It just depends on whether the curb at the bottom of his feet is the steps going to Fike Fieldhouse or the ramp coming down from Godfrey.

The apparent age makes him look like a prof or administrator, but that uniform was worn by cadets. I still have my dad's, minus the hat. I think the navy blue coat was an every day outfit - it has plain buttons and plain cloth, kind of like a pea coat, with no patches, rank stripes or insignia, unlike the dressier gray tunic. Maybe some guys on here even older than me go back to the military days and could enlighten us on the uniform protocols.

Professors did not wear uniforms except the ROTC professors who were active military and they wore their army uniform. That is Old Second Barracks in the background. First Barracks is the building to the right. Third Battacks was to the left and faced the Calhoun Home. The blue jacket was the daily winter coat. For dress and parades we wore a gray jacket with brass buttons, rank insignia, and other decorations. The only time we were out of uniform was for Labs and then we would have to go straight to the barracks and put our uniforms on. At summer parades, like Mothers Day, we wore the gray jacket and white pants. A classy look. Those were the good old days. Fond memories.
