The Story Of IP-O-AY
(Photo Uploaded By Alan Cutts)
Today’s photos are in reference to a short lived and mysterious group at Clemson in the early 1950’s.
IPOAY (I Pay One A Year) is the group that is pictured above. You can see from the flyer on the table that this group started as an athletic fundraising group by having people pay $1 a year to support the program.
This group was created in opposition to IPTAY (I Pay Ten A Year) that was started in the mid 1930’s at Clemson. Below, Frank Howard is out on the community trail drumming up support for IPTAY.
I don’t know what eventually happened to IPTOY, but it obviously fell by the side as IPTAY became the dominant fundraising group at Clemson.
Of course, $10 does not get you very far in IPTAY nowadays!
