October 25th Clemson Historic Picture Of The Day

1972 Harcombe Common

Today’s picture is from February 1st, 1972 and is a collage of photos inside the venerable Harcombe Dining Hall.

On the menu this day were a variety of things I doubt you would see today on a campus dining hall menu, including “Saute Liver With Onion Gravy” and “Fried Ocean Perch”.

The top left picture shows a young man at a juke box. I did not know that Harcombe had a juke box, but obviously at one point it did. You can also see in the bottom center picture that Clemson students often worked in Harcombe to make ends meet. Maybe that is where some of the horrid stories of “exotic” food being severed in Harcombe came from?!

A few events that took place around the date of this picture being taken:

Super Bowl VI took place on January 16 of 1972 with the Dallas Cowboys defeating the Miami Dolphins 24-3. The 1972

The Winter Olympics were held in Sapporo, Japan from February 3rd through February 13th of 1972.

And the Volkswagen Beetle sales exceeded those of the Ford Model-T when the 15,007,034 Beetle was produced.
