A nice article about newly elected mayor and Rice graduate Annise Parker – contains this surprising bit:
Chandler Davidson, professor emeritus of sociology, recalled Parker recruiting him to serve as faculty sponsor for the Gay and Lesbian Support Group that she founded at Rice in 1979 — a year after she graduated. When the members of the group later posed for their first Campanile photo a few years later, Davidson said, almost all wore paper bags over their heads to guard their anonymity.
The article includes the picture – Parker was one of two people who didn’t wear a bag over her head. Craziness!
