Biographical / Historical

The printer's copy of the 1924 Campanile was received from the family of James I. Campbell, who as a senior at Rice Institute, was this edition's editor. The business manager was Lindsay Blayney, Jr., also a member of the senior class, and a son of the chairman of the German Dept., who had been one of the first faculty members chosen by President Lovett. Both Campbell and Blayney earned bachelor of arts degrees in 1924. Campbell then earned a bachelor of science in architecture at Rice three years later. He went on to a distinguished career as an architect, culminating in the presidency of the Baltimore chapter of the American Institute of Architects in 1969.
