Berlin Wall in Houston

Location: Rice University

1 segment

James A.Baker is or was no US president, but for his services as US Secretary of State during his tenure from 1989 to 1992, he was given a Wall segment in November 1999. It was erected next to the James A. Baker Hall on the campus of the Rice University, which houses also the James A. Baker Institute for Public Policy.

Since the graffiti fade over the years, conservators are regularly hired by the university to refresh the color.
