“it was just like being back in the dorms at school,” 1944

Some of the letters from Rice alumni serving in World War II relate stories of meeting up with other former Rice students in strange circumstances and locations. This one, from Whitlock Zander ’43, describes a pretty big reunion. Although the writers often aren’t able to say where they are (and one even asked that the ARA not publish the fact that he was in the service at all) this bunch seems to have all been stationed in San Francisco:

I’m out of town this week and don’t have access to all the letters from here but I will post more of them when I’m back on campus next week.
