Before I left the Woodson, I went looking for the earliest picture of a snow on campus that I could find. These photos are early indeed. They’re not dated, but judging by the military uniform you’d have to guess they were taken in the winter of 1917. I found them in the scrapbook of a young woman who graduated in 1920, so it all adds up. It looks like it was a pretty good snow for Houston, too.
Since I was in a hurry to get out of the library while the getting was good, I didn’t have time to check and see if there was anything in the Thresher about this. I’ll look tomorrow, assuming we survive.
