Revision as of 00:41, 28 November 2006 by C. Mark Sublette (1978 - renovation of the amphitheatre begins)
- 1957: Congressional hearings are held in Washington, D.C. addressing the Hartwell Dam flooding issues.
- Spring break, 1978: Renovation of the Amphitheatre begins during the student holiday. Work is expected to be finished by the fall of 1978. Original plans for tearing down the facility and replacing it with one of "Clemson pink brick" have been abandoned after a majority of students, organized by Save Our Amphitheatre People (SOAP), expressed a desire to have the campus landmark restored in its original form. The screening fountain system is rusted beyond repair, however, and will not be replaced, and the wooden benches with two aisles will be replaced by terraced seating and a single center aisle.
