1989 Brass Rat

My Brass Rat was stolen out of my dorm room in McCormick in 1988.  Would love to wear one again.

Andy Warhol - Cowboy and Indian Series

I am downsizing and would like to place several of my Warhol's in a good MIT home. General Custer, Teddy Roosevelt, and Mother and Child are in shadow boxes.  Also, 54" Stamos Infinity Series painting.  I am the original owner - over 35 years of enjoyment! Message me for details.

From 1965: The Complete M.I.T. Compendium of Raunchy Songs

All 4 volumes - about 50 pages overall - of the lyrics to the songs sang at beer blasts, dorm parties and the like.  They range from the mild to the explicit.  Starting with "Passengers will please refrain/ From flushing toilets while the train/ Is in the station, darling I love you..," the songs go to "In China They Never Eat Chile" that my wife characterizes as "Stupid, sexist stuff."  They are mimeographed typewritten sheets stapled together into 4 "Volumes."  They are certainly a part of Tech history.  Also from 1965, I am including the 23 page "Fugs' Songbook," the 4 page "Ye Burton House Raunchy Song Sheet" and a "Purity Test."  Probably they deserve to be in a time capsule but I will consider all offers.  I will mail them anywhere at actual cost.
