Biographical/Historical note

While preparing for the 1991 Rice charter centennial, a group of students put forth the idea of contributing a project recording the history of student life to the celebrations. This was carried out through a course during the 1989-90 school year in which students conducted interviews with current Rice students, faculty and alumni about various topics related to student life and university history. The students then used the information gathered from the interviews to compile The History of Student Life at Rice University, a compilation of papers focused on various student activities and traditions, as well as the history of the residential college system. This work was published by Rice University as a book by the same title in 1990. Patricia Martin was the project director.

Scope and Contents note

This collection is made up of audio cassette tapes, subject indexes for each tape and interview agreement forms for four interviewers’ work during the 1989-90 school year.

The interviews are grouped by interviewer, as each focused on a particular topic; Colin Delaney on the history of Wiess College, Margaret Jelinek on the history of student theater, Carolyn Strom on the formation of the college system, and their supervisor, Michael Raphael, on the history of Will Rice College. Jelinek and Strom’s interviews are accompanied by subject indexes and interview agreement forms for each interviewee. Delaney’s work includes subject indexes for each interview and an interview agreement form for one interviewee, while Raphael’s interviews have no accompanying paper documentation.
