Academic Court, Cloisters and Sallyport, Rice Institute
An aerial view of the William M. Rice Institute showing the Administration and Physics Buildings, as well as the rooftop of the Physics Laboratories. Also visible is the Academic Quad, with cypress trees, hedges, and flower beds. A number of pedestrians can be seen walking in the Quad, along a path leading to the Administration Building, and gathered near the Sallyport. Beyond the Administration Building a portion of the large circular driveway and parking lot is visible, with empty fields beyond and the residential Montrose neighborhood in the distance. A segment of the airplane appears in the lower left-hand foreground. 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.
