An aerial photograph of the William M. Rice Institute campus. Shown are the Academic Quad, the Administration Building, the Physics Laboratories, and the Commons. Figures can be seen walking on the sidewalks of the primary cross-campus road and along a dirt path leading to and from the Administration Building. The hedges in the Quad and the evenly-spaced trees along each road can be clearly seen. In the distance, roadways and, beyond, fields and residential areas can be seen. Part of the aircraft can be seen in the upper left-hand corner of the photograph. The photograph was taken by E.D. Embres and Thomas B. Eaton, Institute alumni, who had served as airmen in World War I. 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.
