We’ve gotten quite a bit of new material in the archives this summer and one of the collections kind of unexpectedly contains some great photographs. I don’t typically find a lot of glamor in Rice records but here’s a real doozy:
Wow–these folks look sharp. It’s got the feel of a big night. It’s not dated and it identifies (left to right) President Pitzer, Mrs. Brown, Mrs. Pitzer and George R. Brown. Which, of course, I already knew. What it doesn’t tell me is who the couple further up the staircase might be–anybody have an idea? Also, where is this? I don’t think it’s the president’s house because the curving staircase there goes the other way, doesn’t it? Or does it?
Bonus: Campus Photographer Tommy Lavergne sent me this stunning image today. I can’t wait to see what else he shot from up there.
