    Biographical/Historical notes

    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 and Libby Ziff Center for Jewish Life.
