This is an extremely impressive group:
Left to right are Gene Hackerman, Judy Ley Allen, Josephine Abercrombie, and Martha Lovett, all of them committed supporters of Rice, each in her own way.
I don’t know the occasion or where they were, but it seems to have been a luncheon.
Note also the tiny reproduction of Willy in the center of the table! I have one of those in my cubby in the Woodson and I recollect that they were given out to big donors sometime in the ’70s, which would make sense with this photo. For a while I was taking it out around campus with me, as seen here and here. I’d forgotten now much fun that was. It might be time to trot him out again.
Can you read the item Judy Allen is carrying?
Of the four ladies, Judy Allen is the only one who still brings her mother to most home Rice baseball games. Great fans!
At the Bayou Club and a really long time ago, Judy being the only one with us today! Anne Symonds
