The library has a new scanner that swiftly and easily manages oversized materials. This is a big, big deal for me. It’s a big deal for you too, even if you didn’t know it until now because it allows me to show you things I couldn’t before, such as this article about Jacqueline McCauley, the first black woman admitted to Rice:
She left Rice after a couple of years and the only other thing I know about her is that she had a radio program on KLOL in Houston in the ’70s. (The Houston Radio History blog where I found that is a lot of fun, by the way.)
I greatly admire her courage and I’m grateful to her for helping save us from ourselves.
Bonus: The image of her leaning against the entrance to the Sallyport on the second page reminded me of this one taken in September, 1926.
Extra Bonus: It might not be the World Cup, but it’s soccer mania every day for the summer campers on campus.
