Records of your experience will support current and future students, faculty, and others who will want to understand how the COVID-19 pandemic has uprooted our community and transformed our work and lives.
Please pardon our radio (blog?) silence for the past several months--it’s been a whirlwind of boxes, folders, files, and finding aid updates here in University Archives!
The Stanford Archives has been furiously processing our backlogged collection materials with the help of our new student workers for the fall quarter. Since the late summer, we have processed approximately 154.25 linear feet of archival materials. (For scale, 1 record storage carton measures 1.5 linear feet, while 1 manuscript box equals 0.5 linear feet.)
The Stanford Archives is ecstatic to announce that a new Spotlight exhibit on the history of Latina/o/x community at Stanford is available for public viewing. This exhibit builds on the LibGuide published last year which identified primary and secondary sources about the history of the Chicana/o-Latina/o-Latinx community at Stanford University.
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.
