The Rambling Boy:
Rice Univeristy and the Murder of its Benefactor

Everyone loves a murder mystery, and even though this one is a century old, it has everything: forgeries; poison; a villainous butler; legal tangles; a hurricane; a chance encounter; and one of the wealthiest men in Texas history.

On this edition of The Rambling Boy, Lonn explores the murder mystery of William Marsh Rice, and how it subsequently led to the founding of Rice University.
