Memorabilia Monday: Lovett Casino Cash

Casino money

Last week, our student workers, Camille Chenevert and Ian McCarthy, broke down our old exhibit on college parties, and put up a new one on the Rice Owls in Bowl Games throughout the years. It’s in the RMC. If you’re in the area, you should really check it out. They did an amazing job.

Now, on to the money, it decorated our college parties exhibit and dates from the early-mid 1980s. A couple of years ago, a member of the Rice Historical Society donated a box full of cash. Sadly, it wasn’t spendable, but it is fun. The best bill is the 1000 Grannies. Rice undegrads love puns.
