Residential Halls and Commons with Athletic Field and Tennis Courts in background, Rice Institute
An aerial view of William M. Rice Institute, showing the commons areas, the Residential Halls and annexes, as well as the tree-lined roadways, the athletic fields and the tennis courts. In the left corner foreground a segment of the airplane can be seen, and in the upper left-hand corner Main Street can be seen receding into 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.
