Portrait of Mrs. Mary Hale Lovett
Sepia-toned studio portrait of Mary Ellen Lovett (also known as Mary Hale Lovett), wife of Edgar Odell Lovett. She is wearing a white dress covered with a dark lace overlay, with a watch affixed to the bosom. She is standing on a rug with a floral design, gazing down and to the side. The curve of a tasseled drape is visible in the upper right-hand corner, and what might be a painted backdrop depicting a latticed window and door can be seen in the background.
This item shows Mrs. Lovett close to the time of the world tour taken by Rice Institute President Edgar Odell Lovett, his wife Mary Hale Lovett, and Secretary for Rice's Board of Trustees, Carrington Weems. The mission of the tour was to research the best characteristics of the world's top universities and plan the academic, administrative, student and physical structure of the Rice Institute.
