One of the most iconic and photographed buildings in Houston is named for the first president of Rice University, Edgar Odell Lovett. Originally called the Administration Building, Lovett Hall was the first academic building at the new Rice Institute when it opened in 1912 and was also home to Lovett's personal office on the fourth floor. Lovett was appointed president in 1907 and retired in the 1940s, but he maintained an office in Lovett Hall until his death in 1957 at the age of 86. His desk belongings were boxed and stored in the Rice archives. To read the news release for this video, go to http://news.rice.edu/?p=30124.
