The Ben Robertson Society
Students will work with mentors to develop a Ben Robertson Society that will help spearhead research and publicity about this international World War II correspondent who was an alumni of Clemson and the writer of the southern classic Red Hills and Cotton: An Upcountry Memory (1942). Projects and activities will include developing a digital online museum about Ben Robertson as well as curricular and instructional materials. Other opportunities include assisting with an academic biography on Ben Robertson, re-issue-ing his Travelers' Rest and I Saw England, spearheading an annual consciousness-raising campaign via a SWING dance event that features Clemson's Jungaleers, a group that Ben Robertson founded in 1920, contributing to a traveling trunk museum related to the Battle of Britain, and offering assistance for the statewide South Carolinians for the Common Good Multimedia History Project that helps sustain Robertson's legacy within South Carolina.
