During its Golden Anniversary deliberations in the mid-eighties, a committee of the Class of 1939 conceived a project, the Clemson Heritage Gardens, that it felt would be of unique value to the University. Because of its scope and long-term implications, the project was considered unsuitable for the Golden Anniversary gift in 1989. Sensing its potential value, however, the class urged the committee to continue beyond 1989 to develop the idea. Simply stated, the concept involved a visual presentation, in an open-air garden setting, of those important elements of Clemson's history and culture that would enable visitors to learn Clemson's past in easy to swallow doses.
