"The following was unanimously adopted at the annual meeting of the Alumni Association in June.
Whereas, Dr. P. H. E. Sloan was honorably connected with Clemson College from its earliest days and always rendered most faithful and efficient service, and
Whereas, he was always a warm friend of all the students, unflagging in his devotion to their welfare, and opening his loyal heart and his hospitable home to them his warm personal friends,
Therefore, Be it resolved - First, That the Alumni Association collectively and individually do now express their heartfelt sorrow in his death, which has deprived us and all interests of the College of a most loyal supporter and benefactor.
Second, That a copy of these resolutions be sent his bereaved family that they may know of our deep regret over his death, and our sincere sympathy with them in their bereavement.
