Flipping Willy: a crowd gathered at William Marsh Rice statue in preparation for turning the statue, Rice University
A scene in Rice University’s Academic Quad, the morning after a prank which consisted of turning the statue of the University’s founder, William Marsh Rice, around on its pedestal so that it was facing away from Lovett Hall and towards Fondren Library. The statue, Fondren Library, and Anderson Hall, the architecture building, can be seen. There is a white van parked near the statue, with a number of workers, who have placed a ladder alongside the pedestal. A large number of student spectators are watching. Original resource is a black and white photograph.
