From an all-male military college to today’s diverse land-grant university, Clemson has seen a lot of change in its years. Author and University historian Jerome V. Reel delves into Clemson’s evolution in his new book, The High Seminary.

In the next pages are four stories from the book, which covers the years 1889-1964. Read about the last days of President Walter M. Riggs, meet some of Clemson’s military heroes, discover what the first days of Tiger athletics were like, and walk along with Harvey Gantt as he became Clemson’s first African-American student.

And, if you’d like your own copy of The High Seminary, published by the Clemson University Digital Press, you can purchase it through the Alumni Association at http://hearusroarstore.com.
