The Clemson annual yearbooks have been a tradition since 1899, when the first issue was published as the Clemson College Chronicle.
Since 1899, the yearbook has had several names:
- Clemson College Chronicle (1899-1900)
- The Clemsonian (1901)
- Clemson College Chronicle (1902)
- The Oconeean (1903-1904)
- The Chronicle (1905)
- Clemson College Annual (1906-1907)
In 1908, Taps became the name of the annual yearbook and has carried on the tradition of documenting the Clemson campus and student life. The yearbooks have been digitized and are available online.
