Title

Stanford University, aerial view, color postcard

Description

Stanford University's Mediterranean influenced architecture appealed to the early Rice Institute board. The style features buildings with carved stone arches, colonades and towers, organized along an axis punctuated by open quads and preserving long sight lines through the campus.

Abstract

This item was collected on the world tour taken by Rice Institute President Edgar Odell Lovett, his wife Mary Hale Lovett, and Secretary for Rice's Board of Trustees, Carrington Weems. The mission of the tour was to research the best characteristics of the world's top universities and plan the academic, administrative, student and physical structure of the Rice Institute.
