Not long ago I was looking around in a place I’d never looked before and I was again rewarded with something charming–a worn, coffee stained program from the 1962 Homecoming and two photos that seem to have been taken at that event. It was the pictures that first caught my eye. They are only labeled with the name of the photographer: Ike Sanders, ’17, but they are easy to identify. The first one, taken inside Cohen House, is of Professor Tsanoff:
The second is mathematician Hubert Bray, ’18, Rice’s first Ph.D. recipient. Note the large badge on his lapel. I’m fairly certain that it was the one designed by Harry Bulbrook to be worn by members of Rice’s “Frontier Five” classes on the occasion of the 50th anniversary.
I just love to read their names.
