These records reflect the wide variety of assignments carried out by Shaw as Executive Assistant to William F. Miller. Those
files which pre-date Shaw's association with the Provost's office in 1970 were apparently inherited by Shaw and generated
by Miller's office during the years 1967 -70. These include, among others, the Provost's Computer Committee and the Stanford
Computation Center files. The bulk of Shaw's files fall within the period 1970-73, although they extend to 1976 in some areas.
Included are correspondence, reports, minutes, memoranda, proposals, grant files, calendars, patent files, and other materials
regarding computation, research funding, budgetary matters, and university administration. All files are of general material
and correspondence unless otherwise noted on the folder. The contents have been left in their original arrangement within
