Friday Follies: “The University sincerely regrets . . .,” 1961

This was the best laugh I had all week:

    Having a strong craving for images! ({Pretty please?) And is there a clipping from the Chronicle that lead to the press release? (Rice School of Architecture Graduate, 1982)

  3. What would they say about Night of Decadence?

    Yes, as George Webb indicates, that statement immediately brings to mind several statements issued by the administration following the inaugural Weiss College Night of Decadence in October of 1972. But for the next 25 years, each year was more decadent than the previous year. Or so I’ve been told.
