Rice Institute quad flooded after hurricane, as seen from 302 South Hall
The William M. Rice Institute Commons area, showing the aftermath of one of several hurricanes which hit the Houston/Gulf Coast region in 1938. Extensive flooding can be seen both in the hedge-enclosed Commons and in the roadway beyond the trees. The roof and upper story of a building is visible above the tree-line in the upper right-hand corner. The photograph was taken from South Hall, Room 302 by James Casten, an Institute undergraduate student. These details are written on the back of the photograph. Original resource is a black and white photograph.
This photo was given by Rice Institute alumnus James Casten, class of 1942.
