May 20th Clemson Historic Picture Of The Day

Cadet Life In 1950’s And A “Sugar Report”

(Photos Uploaded By Alan Cutts)

Today’s photos span the 1950’s and show what life was like for a Clemson Cadet in the 1950’s at Clemson.

The above photo shows a cadet standing outside the old post office (now Mell Hall) reading a “sugar report”, which was a letter from a girl. The building in the background of the picture would one day be Dan’s Sandwich Shop and is now TD’s.

The next photo is from inside the old barracks and it shows the Cadets passing the time during the evening. The Cadets thumbing through some newspapers and magazines.




The photo below shows another view inside the old barracks, only this time the Cadets that occupied this room have added a little flair to their room (notice the window curtains!).

The next photo shows the cadets inside the old barracks sitting around a table with one cadet playing the harmonica.
