    Is President Leebron the only one not wearing regalia?

    I wonder why Dr. Leebron’s picture is (or appears to be) a photograph (and a very dark one at that), while his predecessors’ were paintings (with discernable backgrounds).

    I’m reasonably willing to believe that it’s a photorealistic oil painting. I’m also willing to believe that Rice no longer wants to spend the money for a formal portrait.

    Melissa, this is awesome. This looks like the president portraits that used to hang in the lobby of Hamman Hall. For a while they disappeared, and I used to ask people where the paintings had gone too. I wish I could remember when the paintings were last hanging at Hamman but the year escapes me. I suspect I noticed them during a matriculation event. Of course, maybe these are not the same. All of those stiff images do not make a relaxing room.

      Philip, I was Director of Rice Players and the manager of Hamman Hall. I retired in May, 2000. I think those portraits were still in Hamman when I retired.
