(The Clemson College Chronicle, October 1897, Volume I, Number 1, page 32.) The end of his tenure in the office was marked by turmoil, culminating in the first student walk-out, in March and April 1902.

Dr. Hartzog, a native of Barnwell, South Carolina, was a graduate of The Citadel and of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary with an honorary doctorate from Mercer University.

In the 1970s, the Tiger Band screw-up award was named the Hartzog Award.
