Last weekend the Friends of Fondren Library honored two Rice graduates, Mayor Annise Parker, ’78 and Harris County Judge Ed Emmett, ’71 at their annual gala. I wasn’t there but I heard that the evening was a lot of fun and a big success.
By pure happenstance I have recently come across photos of both honorees in their bright-eyed youth. Here’s Judge Emmett in front of Lovett College, sporting a tie wide enough to land a plane on:
And here’s the Mayor, in what may well have been her high school graduation picture attached to a Jones College id card:
Bonus: Some people think that it’s all straight laced and uptight in the archives. Those people have never been here on Girl Scout cookie distribution day.
I find it hard to imagine that people really think it’s all strait-laced and uptight in the archives. If so, it’s not from reading this blog! 😉
I can imagine Ed and Annise groaning at those old pictures and thinking, “Oh God. I wonder what else she might find?” Rally club pictures? Club 13? The mind boggles . . .
Yeah, you should see the stuff I don’t post.
Yes! Yes we should!
I would think that Judge Emmett would be more embarrassed by the fact that he lived in a giant toaster.
Girl Scout cookies…I can still see Bill Martin’s daughter delivering the cookies at Sid Rich. There were two tables pushed together and she was in the middle of a cookie fort, surrounded by hungry students.
Bill & Pat Martin’s daughter is named Dale. I wonder what she’s doing these days…
If I recall correctly, there is a really nice photo of Parker with her dog in one of the Campaniles from the 70s.
