1971

I’m taking a break from all the power plant drama today, just to catch my breath. What I have instead is this picture taken at Norman Hackerman’s inauguration in September, 1971. It just struck me as 1971 in a nutshell:

      She was cleaning those chairs over by Geology (I think) and put them up on the picnic table I’m guessing to be better able to reach everything. I liked the way it looked.

    That looks like the tree at the corner of Founder’s Court.
    It was also the traditional commencement perch for people who were not going to graduate with their matriculation class (or so I was told).

    Normal Hackerman came to Rice in the fall of 1970. Was his inauguration a year later, in 1971?
    By the way, the older couple in the chairs are obviously from central casting. They must have been on the wrong set!

  3. Pretty hot to be outside in a suit in late September. Wonder if that’s their substantial looking Mercury in the background…
