This project is intended to serve as the focus point for participation in editing the ClemsonWiki. As such, it is the highest level ClemsonWiki Project, and all future Projects should be children of this project.
 
 
 
The scope of the project is all things related to Clemson University, the City of Clemson, and the surrounding region and community. The ClemsonWiki is based off of the [http://en.wikipedia.org Wikipedia], a collaborative attempt to build an online encyclopedia.
 
<!-- The SCOPE of your project is its most important attribute.

==Adopt an article==
 
You might want to "adopt" an article. This would involve doing the research, writing, and picture-taking (if possible) for either a non-existent article or a stub. Of course, everyone else can still edit an adopted article, and you can work on other things too, but the idea is to find a focus for a while, to try and build up the number of quality articles the Project has produced.

December 14 in Clemson History

  • 1888: In a key vote, the South Carolina House defeats, 67-48, the motion made by opponents of the Thomas Green Clemson bequest to strike enacting words from the resolution. (Bryan, Wright, "Clemson: An Informal History of the University 1889-1979", The R. L. Bryan Company, Columbia, South Carolina, 1979, ISBN 0-934870-01-2, page 27.)
  • 1917:* "Trains Collide Near Calhoun - Fireman and Baggagemaster Lose Lives - Passengers Hurt" "Clemson College, Dec. 14 - Fireman McKenzie and Baggagemaster Blake were killed in a head-on collision which occurred at 8:15 o'clock this morning on the Southern Railway one mile north of Calhoun, when passenger trains Nos. 43 and 46 ran together on a curve. The dead men were of the crew of the northbound train, No. 46. The impact completely demolished both engines, two baggage cars, one express car and 20 feet of track were torn up. No passengers were seriously hurt. It took several hours to extricate the body of the baggagemaster. He was pinned under the tender.
