September 20

  • 1915: "For ten days, beginning Monday, Sept. 20, a protracted meeting will be in progress at Clemson. The pastors of the four churches are working together to make this the greatest revival ever held on our campus. These good men have secured the services of Dr. E. K. Hardin, of Washington, D. C., to do the preaching. Dr. Hardin is a naitve [sic] South Carolinian, having graduated at Wofford some years ago. While in college, Dr. Hardin won a S. C. I. A. A. medal, and his preaching is not at all the kind that puts you to sleep. He has had great success preaching to college men and will give you something to think about if you will only hear him. Come, lets go to preaching at the Methodist church every afternoon and again in Chapel every evening." (The Tiger, "Union Meeting Now On", 21 September 1915, Volume Xi, Number 1, page 1.)
