Man and woman looking at damage from fire at Hanszen College, Rice University (photograph)
Black and white photograph of two people looking at the damage caused by the Commons burning down. The exterior of the building and burned furniture and mattresses can be seen.
In 1975, tragedy struck Hanszen College when the Commons burned to the ground. It seems that a large pile of mattresses put there while renovating Old Section was ignited, possibly by a worker's cigarette.
