    Hi Melissa, I think it is the Cohen House. LouAnn

    The matches on the table appear to say “Cohen House.”
    So, that’s my educated guess.

    It’s the Cohen House – George S. Cohen Room.

    • Wait, what? The George M. Cohan Room? “Give My Regards To Broadway!” “You’re A Grand Old Flag!” “Yankee Doodle Dandy!” That George M. Cohan? 😉
      These days they’re all meeting rooms up there.

    How do I join this club?

  6. Don Johnson says:

    Yes, it was known as George’s Room, located on the second floor of Cohen House. Just down the hall was the large dining room known as Esther’s Room. Back down the hall was the President’s Dining Room (actually kind of small). George’s Room actually had a bar and served beer (as you can see) and other delights to faculty (and others) before they drove home in the evening. It was a different time.

    Like Valhalla, but classier.

    Is this in Cohen House?

  9. Melissa Kean says:

    Am I the only one who’s going to go home and have a beer?

  10. Kathleen Boyd says:

    Is that Cohen House?!

  11. Jerry Outlaw says:

    Who cares? I am still bitterly disappointed that they turned the wonderful RMC pool hall/table tennis center into a bar. The RMC basement was the focus of my entire career at Rice (64-68) and I don’t regret a minute spent there. Now, just another place for students to swill the booze.

  12. Deborah Gronke Bennett (BSEE Hanszen '82) says:

    A waggish student in my time at Rice always called Cohen House “Conehead House”. (The Coneheads were very popular on Saturday Night Live at that time).
