I’m Too Lazy To Say Much Today, But . . .

I never get tired of this pot. That’s Hattie Lel Red, the first woman to enroll and the first to graduate from Rice, posing with it in 1914.

    Aren’t those two pictures taken in nearly the same area?
    By the way, if you go back and look at the pictures from 1969 from last week, all the trees were standing up straight!

    Why don’t they ever plant small cypress and let the roots develop properly?

    Marty gets bonus points for his comment!

    Marty, do remember Bill Red (William S. Red III), who ran the Campus Store?
    Hattie is his ancestor.

    Lel Red taught math at Lamar High School until the 1960s. There is some disagreement over who the first woman graduate of Rice was; I can share the substance of it with you privately if you are interested.
