Charles Reed fencing with crowd watching, Rice Institute
William M. Rice Institute student Charles Reed, wearing fencing gear and lunging towards an opponent. The opponent’s wrist, hand, and epee are visible on the right-hand side of the image. There appear to be some spectators watching through a door on the side of the gym where the fencing is taking place. Original resource is a black and white photograph.
From 1952-1957, the Rice Institute had a competitive fencing team taught by Coach Harold Van Buskirk. Burskirk, a member of the U.S. Olympic team in 1924, 1928, and 1932, coached fencing at Rice from the 1940s-1960s.
