In 1891 William Marsh Rice made a generous bequest in order to found the distinguished Houston institution that bears his name. Ironically, this very bequest helped to bring about his murder, an act of treachery perpetrated by a conniving attorney and Rice’s naïve, malleable manservant. This captivating tale—full of intrigue, legal twists and turns, and sensational revelations—an important part of the full biography of Rice himself, received its first careful historical investigation by Andrew Forest Muir, a longtime professor of history at Rice University who, beginning in 1957, performed the fundamental research that forms the basis for this biography. At the time of Muir’s death in 1969, the work remained incomplete. Subsequently, at the request of the Rice Historical Society, Sylvia Stallings Morris shaped the fruits of Muir’s labor into the first edition of this book, which was published in 1972.
The new edition of William Marsh Rice and His Institute, edited by Randal L. Hall, returns this fine biography to print in connection with the celebration of the centennial of the opening of Rice University. Incorporating new and important sources unearthed since the publication of the original book, this revised edition retains all the flavor and meticulous care of the earlier work, especially the “finely crafted storytelling of Sylvia Stallings Morris Lowe and Andrew Forest Muir,” as characterized by Hall.
Rice University students, faculty, staff, and alumni; scholars and students of Houston, Texas, and regional history; and those interested in the history of American higher education will all welcome William Marsh Rice and His Institute: The Centennial Edition.

SYDNEY — A Cape Breton union leader who put up a fearless fight the keep the area’s coal mines open has died. (Bull) Marsh of New Waterford died Sunday at 93. For 22 years starting in 1958, Marsh served as president of the former District 26 of the United Mine Workers of America. He had dropped out of school in Grade 11 to follow in the footsteps of his father, who was sent off to the mines at age 11, according to an article in Cape Breton’s Magazine. At about age 16, Marsh was about to get a job as a truck driver when his father came home one day with a hard helmet and pit boots. And then turned me loose,” Marsh told the publication in 1997. Marsh’s first coal mining experiences came before the mechanical age, meaning the black mineral was hand loaded and cut out using the longwall method. Marsh continued toiling in the mines until he joined the navy in 1941. After his service ended four years later, he headed back underground. He was first elected mining union president in 1958 after defeating Tom McLachlan, who had previously negotiated history-making wage concessions. Popular for his fighting spirit, Marsh served as union leader for a remarkable 22 years — pushing for miners’ rights amid talks of nationalization and closures. “He was a pretty imposing figure, but he was very jovial as well,” said Steve Drake, a provincial Crown attorney and former coal miner. Drake started working in the coal mines in 1977, just three years before Marsh ended his term in office. They later met up when Marsh was retired and Drake himself had stepped into the role of union president in the 1990s prior to the industry’s closure. “The conversation I had with him in the 1990s when the coal industry was closing was basically the same thing that I heard from him in the 1970s — always, always fight the good fight for the miners. Drake, whose family has worked in the coal industry for about 125 years, said miners often spoke through the election ballot. “They kept electing Bull Marsh, and that was a statement on its own — the miners respected the man. Marsh was honoured in 1995 by the University College of Cape Breton, now Cape Breton University, which bestowed upon him an honorary doctorate of laws degree. Victor Tomiczek, a longtime union leader who served as regional director with the Canadian Auto Workers, said he knew Marsh all his life. “He worked hard on behalf of the United Mine Workers when he was president of that local.
