Special Collections: Add food and stir?
“Hi, I’m working on a paper…..” is one of the more common statements we hear from undergraduates coming into Special Collections. Although undergraduates using our primary sources for research papers might be the most common use, last week, Assistant Professor Tom Mullaney’s History 305A: The History of Information reminded me that there are many other ways our students use these materials.
The Archives recently held an exhibit in conjunction with the Founding Grant Society's annual meeting. On display were:
1. Stanford University Founding Grant [Compared Copy in Jane Stanford’s Hand], 1885 Nov 11
2. Jane Stanford's Amendments to the Founding Grant, Drafts
3. Leland Stanford's Opening Day Speech, 1891 Oct 1
4. Opening Day Photos, 1891 Oct 1
5. Inventory and Appraisal of the Estate of Leland Stanford, 1893
6. Photos of Original Farm and Stanford Home
