The Woodson: Then and Now

When I used this photo of the Woodson in a post last week I stopped for a moment and thought about how much I love the library and how wonderful it is to have such a calm and lovely place to work.

Woodson

This is what the space looked like when I first arrived, circa 1991:

Ghastly but I loved it then too.

Bonus: See that framed piece on the wall at left? It’s from the Illuminated Sacred Music Manuscript Collection and if you go here you’ll find a fantastic story and podcast from 2013 about how Rice grad student Melisa Palermo figured out exactly what it is.

    Dear Melissa, Thank you so much for your delightful presentation at St. Paul’s today. My husband and I arrived on the Rice campus in 1968 so it was all very a very vivid account of some exciting days on the Rice campus. Mary Dix
