Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), Through the Looking Glass: A Radical Guide to Stanford

The University Archives is pleased to annouce the availability of three new online exhibits: Board of Trustees Records, Faculty Senate Records, and Stanford Publications.

The Board of Trustees exhibit includes agendas, minutes, photographs, and directories documenting the administrative history of the Board of Trustees. The site features scanned and born-digital records held by the University Archives. Since this is an ongoing digitization project, not all materials are available online. What is available are minutes (1936-2016) and agendas (1906-1908, 1955-1985, 2005-2016). For a full listing of materials held by the Archives please visit: http://www.oac.cdlib.org/findaid/ark:/13030/c8dn43h8. Note: Board of Trustees records are restricted 20 years from date of creation.

The Faculty Senate exhibit is the culmination of a collaborative project with the Academic Secretary's office to digitize and make available administrative records of the Faculty Senate. The site includes minutes, agendas, supporting materials, and photographs documeting the founding and history of the Faculty Senate. Note: agendas and minutes are restricted to the Stanford community; supporting materials (except for memorial resolutions) are restricted 20 years from date of creation. Look for a physical exhibit in 2018 to honor the 50th anniversary of the Faculty Senate.

The Stanford publications exhibit brings together a variety publications documenting Stanford University. Included are course catalogs, directories, newspapers, newsletters, magazines, journals, and more. Especially noteworthy are student publications. This, too, is an ongoing digitization project and materials will be added here as they become available. Look for additional publications from women's organizations, the LGBT community, and communities of color.

Rally the Resistance Rally, 2017

The Stanford University Archives is proud to announce an ongoing initiative to acquire, process and digitize materials documenting Stanford women, the LGBTQ community, and communities of color. Following on the heels of its Stanford Stories exhibit carried out for the University’s 125th Anniversary, the Archives seeks to expand the range of voices and materials in its collections representing Stanford’s rich history. To that extent, we are happy to share our progress thus far.

From a major exhibition, to a Band performance, to free Stanford-branded Google Cardboards, to an oral history booth: this Reunion Homecoming the Archives is offering a rich variety of options for alumni and their families.

An exhibit focused on the incomparable Stanford Band is now on display at Arrillaga Alumni Center. One of several exhibits currently displayed on campus in celebration of Stanford's 125 anniversary, and united under the theme of "Stanford Stories from the Archives," the exhibit highlights the history of the Band from its earliest formal performances in the 1890's to the irreverent and beloved campus institution we know today.
