Save the Dates



Baker Society Luncheon
We invite you to save the date for our upcoming Baker Society Luncheon on Thursday, October 13, at 11:30 a.m. at Anderson Family Commons at Rice University. Join us for an informative conversation with John B. Boles '65, the William P. Hobby Professor of History and editor of the Journal of Southern History, as he speaks on "Edgar Odell Lovett's Vision for the Rice Institute."
