Interior view of Hanszen College common area, Rice University, after a fire (photograph)
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.
Black and white photograph of the interior of the Hanszen College common area, with chairs stacked and ceiling trusses exposed.
