So all my tech is up and running again but I’m completely swamped today and I’m giving a talk this evening so I have no time. I swear I will get to a discussion of the library tables next week! I know you’re all waiting for that.
In the meantime, here is an oddball picture from the Houston Chronicle, dated March 1, 1959. It isn’t especially sharp and the only way you can really see it is to click and zoom in. But I can’t recall ever seeing an image taken from this exact angle before and there’s a lot to be learned from close study, especially of the area around the dorms.
But one thing over in the Engineering Quad immediately jumped out at me. If you zoom in on Abercrombie you will see a tall antenna. I have been looking for that thing ever since I found these rascally EEs from the class of 1957 up on top of it, as discussed here:
Now I can rest easy.
Bonus: An alert colleague sends this from the RMC.
