When I came in to work today, I discovered that we had received a packet of photographs in the mail. I’m not totally sure of their origin but they all seem to have been taken at the same time and they were printed in November 1965, the same year that Jackie McCauleybecame Rice’s first black co-ed. Although from today’s vantage the overwhelming impression they create is one of wide open spaces, whoever took them captured the campus already mid-way through a decade of tremendous change. Look closely.
Bonus: Art? Or plumbing?
