Many young people have called the Rice campus home over the years. However, not many families have called Rice home.
Jose Garcia and his family lived at Rice from 1945 until 1949. Garcia was the right-hand man of Rice’s first groundskeeper, Tony Martino. The family lived on the western edge of campus.
After connecting with Rice Centennial Historian Melissa Kean they made the trek to the campus to revisit the site of their old home.
