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

P.S. Please send any historic photos you would like to share to webmaster@tigernet.com

It's 1951 and the cadets are lining up to see the popular musical "An American in Paris" staring Gene Kelly and Leslie Caron. This comes as a welcome diversion from not only classes, but also thoughts of their upper classmen who have graduated and are now involved in the Korean War. During the Korean War, 1500 Clemson graduates would be deployed. Sadly, 20 would be killed in the war.

So the film was a welcomed change of pace, going on to win 6 Academy Awards, including Best Picture.
