TigerNet will be posting several historic Clemson photos during this difficult time with no Clemson sports.
Long-time TigerNet member Mintaka ® submitted many of the photos, and we appreciate him being part of the TigerNet family.
Check out this historical photo of Mother's Day on Bowman Field in 1952.
Mintaka's take: When I was a kid, my father (class of 1937) would tell me of the times when there would be thousands of people on Bowman field when the cadets would drill. Seeing the small numbers out there during the 60s and 70s, I always thought he was stretching those numbers a bit.
This photo was taken in the last years of Clemson being a military school on 1952 on Mother's Day. Turns out that Mother's Day was traditionally a very big event for the cadets and their families.
Feel free to share your thoughts that come to mind about our latest historical photo. Hopefully, everyone will enjoy looking back over the years at Clemson.
