Here’s something from the inner depths of my laptop, a scrapbook that records the 1985-86 Central Plant Expansion. I was mainly interested in this because of the list of names of people who worked on it, both from Brown and Root and from Rice. It gives me real pain that so many of our staff over the decades just disappear without much of a trace and I try, as I go about my daily business, to save as much of their record as possible. Without their efforts none of the rest of us could do our work. This scrapbook in particular caught my attention because it reveals the obvious camaraderie and pride in their work that accurately reflects my experience with the men and women who have worked in facilities over the last thirty years.
Spoiler: It went in.
Bonus: They closed the gyms, stuck in my garage.
