As a freshman who didn’t get to experience any Stanford campus and community life this past year, I arrived on campus in June hoping to immerse myself in everything Stanford--past and present. My internship with the Stanford Historical Society Oral History Program certainly helped me accomplish this.

América Latina en las Bibliotecas Stanford / Latin America at the Stanford Libraries

by Adan Griego

(Also in English after Spanish text)

La Universidad de Stanford y una biblioteca de 11,000 volúmenes reciben al primer grupo de estudiantes (425 hombres y 130 mujeres) en octubre de 1891.  Desde sus inicios la nueva institución establece vínculos con América Latina al llegar John Casper Branner como jefe del Departamento de Geología al año siguiente.  Branner ya había visitado el hemisferio sur varias veces y lo haría de nuevo con expediciones científicas al Brasil en 1899 y 1911.   No sorprende que las primeras tesis de maestría con enfoque latinoamericano mostraran la influencia de Branner: geología en América Central (1911) o región petrolera mexicana (1912).
