BOONE—When Jaimie Houston’s great-grandparents, Raymond and Ellen Houston, traveled the globe, they always returned with interesting stories and items from their international jaunts. Among their travel memorabilia was a formal Hindu outfit purchased in 1959, most likely in Nepal. The outfit has been donated in their memory to Appalachian State University’s Department of Philosophy and Religion by the Houston family.
