“What Rice is to become will depend upon our common labors and devotion,” 1914

I’ve been trying to track down a copy of Dr. W.E. Garrison’s remarks at the 1965 dedication of the Bethany College plaque honoring Dr. Lovett, which I am reliably told were very amusing. I haven’t had any luck but I was quite taken by another short talk given that day, this one by Radoslav Tsanoff, Rice’s first professor of Philosophy. It rightly praises Dr. Lovett of course, but also provides a clear reminder of who we are supposed to be and what exactly we are supposed to be doing here. Such occasional reminders, I think, can be quite tonic:

Bonus: It was busy but awfully quiet.

    What a special tribute to Dr. Lovett from another very special Dr. Tsanoff. I know the world has changed and Houston has changed, but the original commitment to providing excellent education to Houston & Texas area students rings in my ears !!
