Stanford University Press announces new fund to honor Susan Groag Bell

Stanford, CA--Stanford University Press proudly announces the launch of the Susan Groag Bell Publication Fund in Women’s History, honoring the scholarly achievements and memory of Susan Groag Bell (1926-2015). Bell was a pioneering women's historian affiliated with Stanford for many years.

University presses provide many vital services to academia such as publishing young faculty’s first monographs and fostering the study of regional history and culture. Women’s history, long neglected, offers much unexplored territory. This new endowment for Stanford University Press is thus both necessary and meaningful.

Kharthoum at Night, by Marie Grace Brown (University of Kansas), has been chosen as the inaugural project to be underwritten by this endowment.

Gifts to The Susan Groag Bell Publication Fund in Women’s History may be mailed to:

Stanford Libraries Development Office
Cecil H. Green Library
557 Escondido Mall
Stanford, CA 94305-6004

To discuss contributing, please email or call Gabrielle Karampelas, Director of Library Development and Communications, at or 650.497.4414.
