February 11th Clemson Historic Picture Of The Day

Dairy Science Building (Part I)


(Photos and Story Uploaded By Alan Cutts)

Today’s photos are Part I from a building that no longer exists at Clemson, the Dairy Science Building.

Built in 1912 at a cost $20,000, the above photo shows the building around the mid 1920’s. The Dairy Science Building was often involved in a joke played on the freshmen. Word would get out that the refrigeration equipment in the Dairy had gone out, putting hundreds of gallons of ice cream in danger of melting and that officials in the Dairy were giving out ice cream for free.

Seems the gullible freshmen would fall for this and grab whatever container they could and run toward the Dairy, only to find out they had been duped.
