Friday Follies: I Was Not Expecting This

I’ve reached a point at Rice where it is not easy to surprise me but today I was surprised twice. This is the most recent one, from the Houston Post, December 29, 1964:

We have a pretty thorough list of famous visitors to campus in the Woodson but these two are not on it. (Curiously, another visiting royal also slipped past the list makers.) There’s not a whisper of this visit in the Thresher either, as the campus must have been deserted

Bonus: They’ve been working on freshening up the crosswalks for a couple of days now.

    Sounds like the Duke was initially staring at a long recuperation, so they went house hunting in River Oaks. TMC doctors sent him home faster than expected!

    Here is Channel 13’s coverage of the Duke’s visit. No mention of Rice though.
