“Eclipse Over Clemson: The day Tigertown will never forget” chronicles one of the most extraordinary days in Clemson University’s storied history. It contains chapters from our scientists, naturalists, psychologists, media relations experts, and even novelists. It also includes a poem – written specifically for this book – by renowned Southern author Ron Rash. And you’ll find more than 100 full-color images of the eclipse and the crowd taken by a team of talented photographers.

Clemson University, which was located almost dead-center within the path of totality, turned out to be one of the most popular places in the nation to view the eclipse. About 50,000 people came to campus that day to witness the rare celestial event. In addition, more than 25 local, national and international media outlets were also in attendance.
