y Uio Presbyterian College of South
arellnn In Often Affectionately
ailed "Clinton College."
t was In on the 17th day of August,
at a company of Clinton men zeal
sly interested in education met at
e urgent request of the pastor of
fie Presbyterian Church, and by per
mission of the trustees Of the Clinton
cadomy, to organize for higher edu
ation in Clinton. The town was In a
reat stir at that time over the Kuklux
hargos made against leading citizens
nd arrests were being made by the
Tnlted States constabulary. Hut
ae things moved them not. The
ting was hold in W. B. Hell's store
d It resulted in the organization of
ho Clinton High School Association,
"he association then elected N. J.
lolmes, Esq., (afterwards. Rev.) its
rst principal. He whs succeeded by
tobo J. Simpson. Esq.. who after
ard became a lawyer of prominence;
ev. Thos. M. Lowry, a well known
reBbyterlan clergyman was next; his
uccessor was Prof. Win. States Lec,
teacher of some thirty years' stand
ng, whose father Rev. Wm. States
ee, was for sixty years pastor of the
Presbyterian church of Edisto Island.
It was on .July 2nd, 1880, that the High
School association met In the old
Academy building, which had been
erected In 1858, and on the site of
?which now stands the graded school
and Clinton High School. The educa
tional Interests of the community and
the needs of the High School were
gravely considered, two classes hav
ing passed beyond the high school
grade and there being need for some
thing higher still. Then and there,
the writer of these lines being in the
chair, a proposition was made to drop
the word liiKli school from the name
of the association and to substitute
College instead. Thereupon, the Clin
ton High School association became
the Clinton College association. A
working charter was secured from the
Clerk of court until the legislature
could provide a State charter, which
came a little later on. Two college
classes were immediately organized
and two years later, the highest of
these classes graduated and the first
college commencement was held. By
later charter Which was obtained from
the legislature, the name was changed
Win the Presbyterian College of South
Carolina and the Presbyteries given
the right to appoint directors. The
name has never been changed since.
This little history is given to account
for the fact that the "Presbyterian
College of South Carolina" is some
times call? d "Clinton" College. That
was the name for the lirst few years
of its existence. And even now it is
BOmetimos called so "for short." In
the same way the "College of New
Jersey" is sometimes called Prince
ton College. The Clinton people have
never emphasized the name "Clinton
College." They have, however, an
other name for that Institution, name
ly, "Our College."
