Update from Jerome V. Reel

Dr. Reel signs copies of his new book, The High Seminary.

Jerome V. Reel, Jr. (Ph.D. 1967) has received the South Carolina Humanities Council award for his outstanding service to humanities education and knowledge through his 48 years of teaching at Clemson University, his six books, several chapters in books, and a dozen articles for scholarly and popular magazines on historical topics ranging from 14th century Britain, higher education history, opera and general music history, to the effects of the Arthurian legend through music and popular festivals. Although retired since 2006, he continues to teach almost every semester at Clemson in response to student requests. His most recent book, The High Seminary: A History of the Clemson Agricultural College of South Carolina, 1889-1964 (June 2011) has sold its first printing; a second is at the press.
