Football is having a pretty good year and tomorrow’s Homecoming game with Charlotte should be fun, but equally interesting is the nightly dancing in the terrace ballroom. I wish I could have seen that:
The Woodson is chock full of Rice Hotel related materials, by the way. I’ve mentioned the salary records for the staff before, but there’s also a Rice Hotel memorabilia collection that’s a view into another world, and a staggeringly dull collection of tax and land records with lots of information about the hotel that I’m sure would be interesting to someone who is not me.
Bonus: Beautiful day yesterday, rainy today, looks like another nice day for Homecoming tomorrow.
Extra Bonus: Happy Halloween from Fondren.
The Rice Hotel was still being used for Rice Institute student events in the late 1950s.
