As an archive, we have various types of trophies from sports to Beer Bike. This tarnished gem is Lucy Taylor’s Doubles Tennis trophy from 1916.
As for specifics on Ms. Taylor, she seems to have only attended Rice Institute her freshman and sophomore years. During her first year, she was a member of the Elizabeth Baldwin Literary Society. After December 1916, she disappears. With such a common name, her post-Rice life is hard to find.
