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.
