December 30th Clemson Historic Picture Of The Day

Mother’s Day on Bowman Field

(Photo Uploaded By Alan Cutts)

This photo was taken in the last years of Clemson being a military school in the spring of 1953 on Mother's Day.

Mother's Day was traditionally a very big event for the cadets and their families. In 1949 Tiger Brotherhood began a tradition of awarding Mother Of The Year to a Clemson mother during Military presentations on Mother’s Day on Bowman Field.

In this picture from 1953, over 12,000 people attended the event. The college dropped its mandatory military status in 1955 and in 1957 the Mother's Day festivities were changes to an all-college open house. You can see that Bowman Field, facing from Tillman Hall towards College Avenue, is jam packed full of Cadets and families.

"As an avid golfer at Clemson's Walker Course, I can attest to the improvement I have seen in my game using Cleveland's 270 series driver.  The 270 is the most advanced combination of style and performance in a driver.  The thing I like about it most?  The retro look with Ultralite technology and the largest, deepest face ever produced by Cleveland Golf.  But most importantly, I hit it further and more accurate than any other driver I have ever used".  Scott Rhymer, Tiger Pregame Show
