Letter from the Office of the President, Rice Institute
AuthorMcCants, John Thomas (J.T.)
A typewritten letter, dated January 26, 1918, from the Office of the President of William M. Rice Institute, addressing the parents and guardians of the students by order of the Board of Trustees, in response to a publication of the Red tape newsletter, although the it is not referred to by name in the letter itself. The newsletter had apparently been critical of both the student curfews and visitation hours as well as the military presence and regulations on campus. The line in the letter from the Office of the President which reads “The authorities do not know to what extent, if at all, your son is involved” would indicate that the letter was sent to all parents and guardians. The letter is signed by J.T. McCants, who served as President Lovett’s secretary as well as the Institute’s bursar. The letter head reads "William M. Rice Institute for advancement of Literature, Science and Art. Houston, Texas". Original resource is a typewritten letter.
