I made a change to only a small part of the entry on Tillman Hall simply because the statement calling it the "oldest" buiilding was incorrect.
Tillman was completed in 1893 - just barely before the first students arrived. Other building was already on the campus when work on Tillman commenced as well as when it was initially completed. A most considerable amount of hard research has been undertaken on the Clemson structures over the past few years, and some questions about these structures have yet to be perfectly resolved. Tillman's place in the chronology of Clemson structures is quite well established, but it must be determined if it or Hardin was the first completed academic building. Hardin was in use a bit past mid-1891, but it was not ready to host any classroom activities even had students been around to attend such sessions.
Near all Clemson buildings are a bit more complicated than simple entries are capable of expressing.
- If you are the gent whom I have chatted with in Special Collections about the history of the campus development, welcome to the Clemson Wiki, and my thanks for your intel. Please feel free to correct anything else you see that might need amending. Some of the earliest articles, like Tillman Hall, can still use refining. C. Mark Sublette 02:46, 11 December 2007 (EST)C.
