Guide to the Hugh R. McKean Rice Institute memoir, 1918-1922 MS 379
Hugh R. McKean was born in Northwestern Iowa in 1899; his family settled in Texas shortly thereafter, living in North Texas, Long Creek, Port Lavaca, and finally Rosenberg and the Houston area. McKean was a student, letterman, and Hohenthal Award winner at the Rice Institute, from which he graduated in 1922.
This collection contains the autobiographical memoirs of Hugh R. McKean, Rice Alumnus, class of 1922. The memoirs cover the early 20th century (through 1922) and for the most part describe the life of a farmer’s family in South Texas. A fair amount of the memoirs concern his years as a student, letterman, and Hohenthal Award winner at the Rice Institute. In addition, the memoirs provide McKean’s observations about events in Houston during the WWI era.
