My primary role is to administer the Stanford Libraries Annual Fund for unrestricted gifts and to assist benefactors with other types of gifts, such as donations of collections, creation of endowments, and planned giving via bequests.  I also co-edit the monthly e-newsletter, ReMix, and write for a variety of library communications and publications.

More about me 

I have lifelong interests in ancient and early medieval literature, especially Greco-Roman and lately Chinese, and in the antiquarian books and manuscripts in which it was transmitted.  I was formerly associate curator for paleographical materials in Stanford Libraries' Special Collections.
