Records of the activities of Rice University students have been captured in scrapbooks by alumni since the opening of the Institute in 1912. The scrapbooks in the collection contain ephemera reflecting the stimulating life on campus, including photographs, correspondence, invitations, newsclippings, tickets, etc, related to academic, social, sports, and arts events and organizations.
