Newspaper clipping from the New York Herald edition of Sunday, October 6, 1912, magazine section, page 12, with a headline ‘$10,000,000 Institute flowers from William Marsh Rice tragedy’. An additional storyline reads ‘College in memory of aged man of whose murder in New York, Albert T. Patrick was convicted to open this week with impressive academic festival’. The story provides a brief biography of William Marsh Rice, and details both his wealth and death. A large color illustration shows the central quad of William M. Rice Institute, with the a spectral hooded image of Death hovering above preparing to snip a cord with a pair of scissors. Original resource is a newspaper clipping.
