Stanford University Archives | 50

This is an Archive of a Past Event

Continuing the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Stanford University Archives, the Archives is pleased to announce the opening of an exhibit, on view in Green Library's East Wing Lobby until October 25, 2015, that sheds light on the origin and development of the Archives.

The exhibit showcases several treasures from the Archives, including founding documents, a handle from the original Stanford Axe, and the ceremonial sword and scabbard of early Trustee, and founder of Palo Alto, Timothy Hopkins.
