Interior view of Hanszen College common area furniture, Rice University, after a fire
Black and white photograph of the interior of the Hanszen College common area, with chairs stacked and ceiling trusses exposed. Workers can be seen in the background.
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.
