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.
