Energy tycoon T. Boone Pickens is visiting Clemson University to give a talk on leadership. The Holdenville, Okla., native is a descendent of Revolutionary War hero and congressman Andrew Pickens, for whom South Carolina's Pickens County is named.

A graduate of Oklahoma State University, Pickens is a generous philanthropist, giving more than $1 billion in donations to various efforts in his lifetime. He has given more than $500 million in support of academics and athletics at his alma mater.

Pickens is giving a lecture on Thursday at the Brooks Center for the Performing Arts.

His talk is free and open to the public.
