Said TAPS 1916, Volume Nine, of him: "This carefree hill-billy of Oconee blew into Clemson in '12, and has been blowing ever since. 'STRIB.' is without an equal in the art of 'stump-speaking' and 'lawyering.' His cheery smile, and genuine good-fellowship have won for him a cherished place in the hearts of all. The highest ambition of this talented youth is to affiliate the interests of Winthrop and Clemson alumni in his home town. We wish for him much success in his every undertaking."
