Papers related to mathematics professor Harold M. Bacon '28, MA '29, PhD '33, and his wife, Rosamond '30, MA '32, their son
Charles R. Bacon, and their cousins Orrin and Harriet Dunn. Materials are related to the Dunn (Bacon) House, and Stanford
history, inluding Jane Stanford and Herbert Hoover.
Harriet Dunn was a friend of Jane Stanford who operated a boarding house for young faculty on what is now White Plaza. The
house was later passed down to her cousin, mathematics professor Harold M. Bacon '28, MA '29, PhD '33, and his wife, Rosamond
'30, MA '32 (a co-founder of the Stanford Historical Society). In 1997, Stanford bought the house, which is now the Harold
