It almost seems like a dream now to remember how rural it was here in late 60s and early 70s.I was driving home the other day and looking at all the houses around where I live and I was thinking that now we live in the suburbs of the Clemson/Seneca Metro area , complete with pizza delivery on what was a country road back when .lol


Nice, here'sa little bigger pic for the visually challenged.

I'm actually equal parts cynicism and apathy. I'm always willing to believe the worst as long as it doesn't take too much effort.


look at those ugly grey sludge holes back there. Glad they

I remember it well. I love Clemson, then and now. Frequently when on campus I am reminded that it's no longer the school I attended. Yep, in some ways it is the same, but in many ways it's much much different.

Right about now, I'm sounding like my grandfather used to sound, so I'll shut up.

Go Tigers!!

Yea but do you people really know about the football team then, Charlie Dumas, Elmo Lam, Jim Parker, Ray Addison, Don Chuy, Hugh Mauldin, Ron Scrudato, Harry Pavilack, Jim Anderson, Jimmy Howard etc. And how loud it was in Fike Field House? And how Jimmy Howard was always at the door of Fike hanging around and dressed very nice. The Cow Palace was louder than a drag race at Commerce!!! I've done both. Or basketball, Choppy Patterson, Gary Helms, all the Mahaffeys Tommy, Randy, Ritchie, Donnie, or Dave Angel, and Jim Sutherland. I know, who is this guy he never gets on here much........

How could possibly have list of 60's players and forget him?


David Angel doesn't quite fit this 1960s list.

Who lived in the White House in the center of the pic or was that the early infirmary? It was gone by the '70's and a Womens' parking lot was located where that grove of trees was. Girls who didn't have a car would get a parking pass for a football player since the jock dorm was nearby and the jocks didn't have their own designated parking lot.


When we lived in the country, and lost the big Oak Tree

by Sirrine Hall in the Summer of 1969. Late afternoon thunderstorm came across campus from the lake. A huge bolt of lightning hit the tree and it literally exploded.

We found parts of the tree lying on the ground level porch area of manning hall later that afternoon. There were pieces of that tree all over the South Campus area.


That's the original Redfern.

The new Redfern is still under construction to the left.

from 1965 to 1969.

The library was opened during those days, and Littlejohn debuted in December 1968, my senior year.

As most of us walked everywhere, I suspect fellow students from that era became very familiar with the entire campus.

Does anyone know what year the water tower on 123 was put up and this was asked in a previous reply but what was the white house just to the right of center?

I gotta say I keep looking back at that picture to see if there are things that stand out.It's almost like you could jump into that picture and go back to the early 70s and smell the air and the humidity.I keep looking up 123 in the picture to see if I can see Seneca where I would go to Harpers 5 and Dime to get a cherry slush (never the coke-always the cherry) and a bag of popcorn.Oh and there were the BILO cows on top of the store! lol I miss the cows!
