The Elizabeth Baldwin Literary Society (EBLS) was founded in 1914 and named in honor of the second Mrs. William Marsh Rice. It was an active organization until the mid 1980s. The Owen Wister Literary Society (OWLS) was founded by Adele Roensch in 1924. It was named after Owen Wister, an American writer famous for his novel The Virginian. The purpose of the organization was to further cultural and social interests on the Rice campus and to promote friendship, understanding, and fellowship among its members. As the literary societies became smaller, they would have joint activities, like this Mexican dinner.
