Sometimes technology that seems obsolete really isn’t but I think this one is actually fit for no purpose today. I came across this small fuzzy photo of the new Addressograph system in a copy of the March, 1958 Sallyport. I wonder whatever became of those semi-permanent records.
Rice football great Weldon Humble was a handsome man and deserves to have a better picture here:
Bonus: Many thanks to Chuck Pool, Rice’s head of Athletics Communication, for this link to an amazing piece of film made on the occasion of Coach Jess Neely’s last game in November of 1966. It’s worth watching for a lot of reasons. So much has changed, but I couldn’t help but notice that the size of the crowd was roughly the same as it was for the game this Saturday.
Extra Bonus: I was recruited to take some pictures of a couple of enthusiastic alumni before the game and got them to agree that I could get a couple of shots with my own camera too.
