The Greenhouse at Clemson

JFC DuPre was the first professor of agriculture at Clemson College, from July 1891 until his death 25 August 1899 . He and his students grew the food that was used to feed the students and faculty. A native of Abbeville, South Carolina, his association with the school was the beginning of our family’s connection with it, which includes students, alumni, professors, as well as residents of the town, over the last century.
