Can you believe these goofballs?? I just want to go up there and make them come down.
This is a really early picture, about 1914 or 1915, I’d guess. The guy on the left is Elmer Shutts, Class of 1916. Although I know an unhealthy amount about the first several classes at Rice, I can’t figure out who the other one is. He might have been a friend of Shutts or a visitor to campus. Shutts later made a very good career for himself as the engineer in charge of building the port of his hometown, Lake Charles, Louisiana. But you wouldn’t suspect it based on this behavior.
Note: Don’t do things like this.
