Rice's Centennial Historian

Reception following the presentation
Kyle Morrow Room, third floor, Fondren Library
Melissa Fitzsimons Kean, Rice University's centennial historian since 2005 and author of "Desegregating Private Higher Education in the South: Duke, Emory, Rice, Tulane, and Vanderbilt," writes Rice History Corner: Gleanings From the Rice University Archives, a popular blog among Rice alumni. One of her early responsibilities as Rice's historian was preparing for Rice's centenary celebration in 2012. Working closely with John Boles '65, the William Pettus Hobby Professor of History, and Lee Pecht, university archivist, Kean researched the historical work to be done for the celebration and related events. Kean's five degrees include four in history - a Rice doctorate, Rice and Creighton master's degrees and an Iowa State bachelor's degree - as well as a J.D. from the University of Iowa.
