I never met Joel Cyprus ’59, ’61, ’63 but I’ve heard enough to know that he was a legendary teacher as well as a key participant in the Rice Computer project. I can’t recall where I found these undated pictures–they look to be slides, actually–but I can safely say that I’ve rarely seen such a gleeful grin on anyone around here. It makes me smile too, as if we’re in on the same joke:
He passed away only a couple of years ago. Here’s link to his obituary in the Jewish Herald Voice—it’s well worth a read.
Bonus: Allen Center Oaf. This is another old one that made me snicker.
