“Even Martians Are Voting For Nancy Moore” in the 1953 elections. Maybe it’s just me, but that seems like a dubious endorsement. On one hand there’s the undeniable appeal of the exotic, but I don’t think Martians have a good reputation for trustworthiness.
Bonus: Interestingly, I had to prop this door open today so I could get a bunch of stuff out of the storage room in Abercrombie.
Special Rain Delay Bonus:
Melissa, just out of curiosity, how old would information/photos need to be to be of interest to you as Rice Historian? Are you involved in creating archives from current documents, media, etc?
To the right:
“Come get GLD Man, Vote for Mary Ann” Kopriva (not sure about the LD)
(and the little sign in at his feet says “Kopriva Will!”)
“When I’m rootin’ for Don Ivey, I wish I were a lion so I could roar for my favorite Soph Sec Treas Don Ivey of course!”
and to the left:
My clothes may still be torn and tattered, But in my heart I’d be a King”
Where are they? I don’t recognize the building with all those awning windows.
I wonder who won?
think that first one is :
Come on old man, vote for Mary Ann
This may not be from 1953. Murff Bledsoe graduated in 1979. The building is Anderson Architecture on the academic quad side.
Maybe there are two Murffs, a generation apart.
Indeed – MB III graduated in ’55, MB IV in ’79.
And Nate in ’09
What, no Murff Bledsoe V? (Or maybe he went to UT instead?)
Murff the third was one of a kind. He was in the Class of ’55, along with Nancy Moore. Murff the 4th is his son, a good lawyer in Central Texas.
