This newspaper clipping came out of an alumni scrapbook. I might be mistaken, but I believe that’s the only picture I’ve ever seen of Dr. Lovett goofing around. Dr. Houston seems to be having a jolly time as well.
Folly Update: Will Cannady has come up with an explanation of this picture from a couple of weeks ago.
The photo was taken in 1971 while Jonathan King and I were visiting the library. We were writing an article about the LBJ Library just after it was completed as part of a series of articles we called “Photo Critiques”. Our article did not say many nice things about this building’s design. These were published by the English magazine Architectural Design, widely known as AD. Jonathan King was the photographer.
Thank you, Professor Cannady!
