The 20th William M. Rice Institute commencement ceremony, with a view of the speakers’ platform. The dignitaries are seated in three rows behind the four officials who are standing, and who are, from left to right: William Ward Watkin, Dr. Hubert Evelyn Bray, Dean Harry Boyer Weiser, and Dr. Edgar Odell Lovett, the Institute’s first president. Lovett is standing closest to the podium, which has a microphone affixed to the top, with a cloth hanging in front, bearing the Institute’s coat of arms. Portions of the front three rows of students can be seen in the foreground. Decorative ferns line the base of the platform, and the overhead awning can be seen, supported with wooden columns and rafters. The flags of the United States and the State of Texas are hanging behind the seated dignitaries. A portion of the cloisters of an Institute building can also be seen in the background. “Rice Inst. Houston Tex., 6-3-35, Schleuter” is handwritten in white ink at the bottom of the photograph. Original resource is a black and white photograph.
