February 16th Clemson Historic Picture Of The Day

“Uncle Bill” Greenlee

Today’s photos are from the 1920’s and are of “Uncle Bill” Greenlee driving a wagon full of Clemson dignitaries.

"Uncle Bill" as most people knew him was the last person alive to have known Thomas Green Clemson. Greenlee lived to the age of 104. He was a common sight in and around Clemson for years hauling almost anybody and anything.

For those who need a reference as to where the photo above was taken, Dan's (and later TDs) would later be located in the café in the background.

Bill Greenlee (1870 - 1972) was a former servant of Thomas Green Clemson who continued to be a local personality and character until his death in 1972.
