(Photos Uploaded By Alan Cutts)

Today’s photos are a collection of the statue of Thomas Green Clemson, which sits in front of Tillman Hall, better known as "Old Green Tom."

The old man started with humble beginnings under the skillful supervision of sculptor Abe Wolfe Davidson in Riggs Hall during the 1930s. The above photo shows Davidson working on the statue.

The next photo shows the Cadets raising their blade in salute of Old Green Tom shortly after he went on display.

The next photo shows the statue overlooking some Freshman Rats beating a drum on a night prior to a big football game.
