Looking over East Hall at Administrative Group of buildings, Rice Institute
An aerial view of the William M. Rice Institute, with the Residential Hall in the lower left-hand corner, and the Physics and Administration Buildings in the center. The Academic Quad is clearly delineated, with the cypress-lined hedges and flower beds appearing quite dark. A corner of the Mechanical Laboratories is visible on the upper left-hand margin. The roadways through the Institute are lined with trees, and the large circular driveway and parking lot in front of the Administration Building can be seen, with pedestrians here and there on the paths and sidewalks. The areas beyond the buildings are large open fields, with the residential Montrose neighborhood appearing in the distance. Original resource is a black and white photograph.
In 1921 E.D. Embres and Thomas B. Eaton, class of 1920 and veterans of World War I, flew over the campus and shot twelve iconic images which are included in the booklet, “The Flying Owls: Rice Institute from the Air.” (LD4711 .R333 F6) All twelve photographs were dedicated to the memory of men of Rice who died in the war, many of whom were friends of the authors. This image is one of those photographs
