Metal pipes can be seen running up the brick wall in the background, along with a portion of a wooden bench. 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.
