This article is from the “Rice History Corner” ,
a blog by Melissa Kean, official historian of Rice University. It describes the Rice “calendar” from 1920, a sort of early prototype year book. I found this abandoned back in my undergraduate days (circa 1971) and claimed it by right of salvage. I kept it all these years, intending to donate back to Rice in 2020 (assuming I live that long). But when the Rice Centenial came along, it seemed more appropriate.
