Clemson’s Special Collections Library houses manuscripts, rare books, and university archives.
They have pulled together a collection of primary sources regarding the naming of Tillman Hall. Some of these sources include letters and minutes from the Building and Grounds Committee, minutes from the Board of Trustees, an article in The Tiger, and more.
What are primary sources? In short, “A primary source is a document, image or artifact … created contemporaneously with the event under discussion.” (Williams, Historian’s Toolbox, 2nd ed., p. 56).
