Willy Fowler and the "Rice Mafia" at pub lunch at The Green Man in Grantchester near Cambridge in July 1971. From left, Kem Hainebach (with Mike Howard hidden behind him), Stan Woosley, Ray Talbot, Dave Arnett, Fowler, Cliff Morris, and Clayton. Woosley , Howard and Hainebach were working on their PhD theses at Rice, and accompanied Clayton to Cambridge during three summers. Talbot and Arnett were Assistant Professors at Rice. Cliff Morris was a Rice research student with F. C. Michel, who took this image. This summer influx from Rice gave rise to "the Rice Mafia" joke. This photo has been published in an obituary of W. A. Fowler (D. Clayton (1996) PASP, 108, 1). Photo by F. C. Michel.
