The High Seminary to be Sold at Reunion

When WWII broke out in Europe, at least one Clemson student from South Carolina left school, went to Canada and joined the Eagle Squadron composed of Americans and Canadians rushing to the defense of Great Britain. He qualified because he was a skilled pilot and went to Clemson College, which had a Civil Air Patrol Program. With additional training after he arrived in Britian, he was joined into The Royal Airforce and flew for Britain in The Blitz. He was shot down in late 1941 over the English Channel and is the first known WWII casualty from the school. His body was recovered and is buried in Surrey, England. To read more about this and other exploits of Clemson men and women, purchase your copy of The High Seminary, Volume 1 1889-1964. The books will be available for sale at the Golden Tiger Reunion, June 9-11 in Clemson. Buy there and save on shipping and have author and historian, Jerome Reel, sign your copy!
The book is also available for sale online at www.hearusroarstore.com.
