Jordan Archives Bolster and Expand the Jack H. Lee and Arden T. Lee Baha'i Collection at Stanford Libraries
By guest authors Deanne LaRue and David Langness
On 18 February 2016 the Stanford Libraries received the archives that contain the life’s work of educator, psychologist and philosopher Daniel C. Jordan, the creator of the Anisa Educational Model.
Delivered personally by Dr. Jordan’s widow, Nancy Jordan, and his educational collaborator, Donald Streets, the archives and materials contain more than a thousand documents, tapes, files and films spanning Jordan’s remarkable career in education, philosophy, human development, music and psychology. The archives include Jordan’s early work on the holistic, Baha'i-inspired Anisa Educational Project; his personal correspondence with major historical figures like the psychologist and writer Carl Jung; and his doctoral work at the University of Chicago in human development, social anthropology and psychology, for which he wrote and directed a ballet accompanied by musical score and scenario.

The Stanford Libraries have started an initiative to bring together users of the open source data analysis software R from all over campus. Our goal is to build a robust community of Stanford R users to better support campus research and teaching. We will be co-sponsoring the useR conference this year and hope to bring together both experts and new users to provide each other with expert support around R.
