By many measures, Stanford is a big place. Two typical measures: the historic campus (6th largest in the US) stretches across 8,180 acres, and is home to over 31,000 students, faculty, and staff this academic year.

Spotlight on the transcontinental railroad

The completion of the transcontinental railroad on May 10, 1869 marked an important milestone in the history of the United States with the joining of the populated east with the growing cities and towns of the west. Stanford University, with its connection to Leland Stanford and Timothy Hopkins, holds in its libraries an impressive array of materials related to this monumental achievement including the often overlooked contributions of the Chinese railroad workers.
