A pioneer and leader in providing education and opportunity to the Palmetto State's black population, South Carolina State University has created and sustained an academic tradition of excellence since its inception in 1896. Founded as the Colored, Normal, Industrial, Agricultural and Mechanical College of South Carolina, this historically black college has evolved over the decades to become one of the South's premier academic institutions. This volume, with over 200 black-and-white photographs, traces the institution's history from the college's first years under Thomas Miller to the present, under the guidance of Leroy Davis. Recording, in word and image, the academic traditions and eclectic campus activities over the past century, this unique pictorial retrospective touches upon many elements of the Bulldog experience, including early scenes of turn-of-the-century courses, such as cheese-making, tailoring, brick masonry, and beekeeping; photographs of various athletic teams over the years; and pictures of early campus organizations, like the college band, the New Farmers of America, and the first ROTC officers. However, college memories are not just shaped by coursework and extracurricular organizations, but are fondlyremembered in the context of everyday life on campus, from the dormitories, such as Lowman, Manning, and Miller Halls, to historic academic buildings, like White and Wilkinson Halls, to two locations where students spent countless hours—Floyd Dining Hall and Miller F. Whittaker Library.
