Explore Stanford History

The Stanford Historical Society Collections (SHS) exhibit provides a gateway to the rich array of historical content produced by the Stanford Historical Society for the purposes of education and research. New content is added regularly. Visit the pages below to explore articles from the society's historical journal Sandstone & Tile, books and monographs, program recordings, and oral histories conducted with Stanford faculty, staff, trustees, and alumni. Please consider becoming a member or making a donation to support the Stanford Historical Society's continued efforts to create and preserve content about the university's multifaceted history.

Enhanced support for full-text search is available for text-based items in this exhibit, including oral history transcripts and journal articles. Watch this video tutorial for a demonstration of how to search both within a single exhibit item or across all items in the exhibit.
