Noted British-Australian war photographer Tim Page passed away on August 22, 2022.  Page is best known for his powerful photographs documenting the Vietnam conflict, which he covered for Time and‌ Life magazines, U.P.I., Paris Match and The Associated Press.  As noted by Seth Mydans in his obituary for Page in the New York Times, Page's "photography was notable for its raw drama and its intimacy with danger, the product of the risks he took to immerse himself in combat."

Three Stanford students, sponsored by the Stanford Historical Society (SHS), spent the summer as interns with the Oral History Program under the supervision of program staff Natalie Marine-Street and Makeda Barr-Brown. Founded in 1978, the Oral History Program explores the institutional history of the university through interviews with faculty, staff, alumni, trustees, and other members of the community. The program relies on student and volunteer interviewers and editors who have helped complete nearly 1,000 oral history interviews since its inception.
