The High Seminary

Volume 1: A History of the Clemson Agricultural College of South Carolina, 1889–1964

Jerome V. Reel

“Jerry Reel has done a tremendous service to Clemson University and all alumni with this carefully researched history of the first 75 years of our existence as an institution. His book is destined to become the standard reference for understanding Clemson’s founding and early years up to July 1, 1964. With the name change that year, Clemson’s modern history began as we grew from a small college into a major research university. I can’t wait for volume 2.”

—James Barker, President Emeritus, Clemson University
