Actually, I think they met yesterday so we’re probably safe.
Here’s a picture of a much earlier board meeting. There’s no identification of anyone and the photo is undated, although it must have been taken in the late 1960s. (We’ve talked about this before–go id your pictures! Your descendants will thank you.) I’m pretty sure who most of them are, but there are a couple I just don’t know. Let’s have a look:
I’m going to start on the back side of the table at left and go around. Again, most of these I’m pretty certain about but if anyone thinks I’m wrong or knows the ones I don’t, please speak up. I get lost at the right end of the table. So I make it as:
Oveta Culp Hobby
Malcolm Lovett, Sr.
George R. Brown
Rice President Kenneth Pitzer
Chancellor Carey Croneis
Is that Holmes Richter, the Dean?
A very young, handsome Ralph O’Connor
I think this must be Gardiner Symonds
One last thing: where do you suppose they’re meeting? It’s such a featureless room it’s impossible to say.
