Rice University students during Masterson presidency controversy, wearing tags which read "Welcome Dr. Masterson"
Two Rice University students, facing the camera while a man in the foreground addresses them, during the controversy over Dr. William Masterson’s presidency. The students are both wearing stickers on their jackets which read “Welcome Dr. Masterson.” Another man, barely visible on the right margin appears to be holding a leaflet. Trees and a university building can be seen in the background. Original resource is a black and white photograph.
A five-day controversy rose on the campus of Rice University in February 1969 following the appointment of Dr. William H. Masterson by the Board of Trustees as the university's new President to succeed Kenneth Pitzer, who had resigned in August 1968.
