The Tipmost Top of the Morning from President Lovett, Thanksgiving 1925

From back in the day when the annual Homecoming Reunion was still held on Thanksgiving:

(I’m sure everyone remembers Heavy Underwood from my struggles with a scrapbook that involved two guys with the same name. The one here is Wash “Little Heavy” Underwood.)

We played Baylor that day and it ended in a 7-7 tie, which was probably a fitting end to a season where the Heisman led Owls were otherwise 4 and 4:

I hope all of you have a wonderful holiday. As we often say around Rice History Manor, please pass the beans!

And I’m taking the day off tomorrow, just for fun.
