This chug can was made by Rice alum Skip Wise. The plastic around the opening is soft to keep the chugger’s lips from getting scratched, and there are two holes at the bottom that can be covered with fingertips to control the flow.
Jen Cooper, a former Student Media Advisor at Rice, donated the can to the Woodson in 2001. She explains in a 2001 email:
designed and constructed by Geoffrey “Skip” Wise, MSEE, Jones ’91
he created an entire set for Jones College shortly after he graduated (’91 – ’93 ?)
I know some of them are still at Jones
green is one of Jones’ Colors
Both Skip and his sister (Benee Wise Curtis, Jones ’86) chugged for Jones as undergrads and alumni…Benee probably still does.
The cans have seen plenty of action since they were made:
