Background: These are campus scenes at Clemson College in Clemson, South Carolina...where Negro Harvey Gantt is expected to register on Monday (28 January).
The 20-year-old Gantt...a transfer student from Iowa State University...will be the first Negro admitted to a white public school or college in South Carolina. He will be registered under a court order.
Although no disturbance is anticipated...a force of about forty South Carolina State Troopers moved onto the campus Sunday 27 January. The state is not taking any chances on rioting such as occurred when Negro James Meredith entered the University of Mississippi last fall. Most of Clemson's students will not return to the campus from their mid-semester leaves until Tuesday or Wednesday. Classes begin Friday.
Gantt...a resident of Charleston, South Carolina...will enroll in the School of Architecture. He was a junior at Iowa State...but his status at Clemson will be decided after he registers.
When Gantt enters the institution...there will be only one state in the country still without any public integrated school or college-Alabama.
