Scope and Contents note

The Stanford Oral History Project (SOHP), a joint effort of the Stanford University Archives and the Stanford Historical Society, began in 1978 as an extension of their efforts to collect, preserve and make available to researchers the historical record of the Stanford University community. These taped interviews and their transcriptions supplement the already strong collection of written and photographic materials in the University Archives, and provide a unique resource containing experiences and viewpoints not often found in traditional documents.
The oral history interviews in the SOHP collection are carefully planned historical documents which we hope will serve a wide range of scholarly interests. Five additional sets of oral history interviews are listed separately: a set of interviews with members of the early Aurora newspaper collective; a set of interviews with participants in Stanford's Community Committee for International Students (CCIS); a set of interviews conducted by Joan Bromberg of the American Institute of Physics for the Laser History Project; a set of interviews with graduates of the Stanford School of Nursing; a set of interviews with Stanford-associated "Silicon Valley" scientists (a component of the Stanford and the Silicon Valley Project); and a set of interviews with family and friends of Dr. Robert Reid Newell, professor in the School of Medicine.
For most of the interviews, a typed transcript, edited for accuracy by both interviewer and narrator but otherwise unchanged, is available.

Arrangement note

The interviews are arranged in seven series: 1. Stanford Oral History Project Inteviews; 2. Aurora Interviews; 3. Community Committee on International Studies Interviews; 4. Laser History Project Interviews; 5. Stanford Nurse Alumnae Interviews; 6. Silicon Valley Project Interviews; and 7. Dr. Robert Reid Newell Interviews.

Cohen, Stanley N., 1995

Physical Description: 30 audiocassette(s)

Biography/Organization History

Stanley N. Cohen is a physician and researcher, who has studied the biology of bacterial plasmids (circular deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) molecules that replicate independently of the bacterial chromosome), and helped explain the mechanisms underlying the control of cell growth and gene expression in higher organisms. Cohen is best known for his work with geneticist Herbert W. Boyer, in which they became the first scientists to transfer a gene from one species to another, proving that the transplanted gene could function normally in its new home.
Cohen and Boyer worked only a few dozen miles from each other, Cohen at Stanford and Boyer at the University of California at San Francisco, but did not meet until both men attended a conference on plasmids in Honolulu in the spring of 1972. Discovering their similar concerns, they had a late-night conversation over hot pastrami and corned beef sandwiches at a Korean deli on Waikiki Beach, and began collaborating. In just four months, using Boyer's methodology, they were able to successfully introduce foreign DNA into a bacterial plasma, and using Cohen's methodology, they were able to subsequently insert this modified plasmid into bacteria. Because bacteria divide very rapidly, their work allowed the genetic "manufacturing" of engineered drugs and hormones, leading to the multi-billion dollar biotechnology industry.

Physical Description: 2 audiocassette(s)

Biography/Organization History

Peter C. Allen came back to Stanford in 1946 as Editor of the Stanford Review, the Stanford Alumni Association magazine. He first met Dr. Sterling when he and Fred Glover interviewed him after the Big Game in 1948. Allen succeeded Glover as Director of Information in 1953 and later became the first Director of the News and Publications Service. He was University Editor when he retired in 1977 and he was University Editor Emeritus at the time of this taping session.
Ernest C. Arbuckle knew Dr. Sterling from the time they were both graduate students in 1933. They were good friends when Dr. Sterling was at Caltech and at the Huntington Library, and were close personal friends by the time Arbuckle was elected a University trustee (1954-58). Dr. Sterling appointed him Dean of the Graduate School of Business in 1958 and he served until 1968. Arbuckle was also Chairman of the board of Stanford Research Institute (now SRI International) 1966-70. But he left the deanship in 1968 to become Chairman of the Board of Wells Fargo Bank and Wells Fargo Co. He served a second term on the Board of Trustees, 1973-76. He was elected Chairman of the Board of Saga Corporation in 1978 and served until 1982. [Mr. Arbuckle and his wife Katherine were killed in an automobile accident on January 17, 1986.]
Alf Brandin also knew Dr. Sterling from the early 30s when he was a member of Stanford's "Vow Boys" football team. He was appointed University Business Manager in 1946 by President Donald Tresidder and continued to serve in that capacity under Dr. Sterling. In 1953 Brandin became Executive Officer of the Stanford Land Development Program as well, and the following year was made Vice President for Business Affairs. He left Stanford in 1970 to become Senior Vice President and member of the Executive Committee of the Board of Utah Construction and Mining Company [known as Utah International Inc. when this session was held] .
E. Howard Brooks was an Acting Instructor of History in 1949 when he first met Dr. Sterling. He called on the president to ask if he would assist in judging a graduate student essay contest. (He did.) In 1951 Brooks became Assistant Director of Admissions under Professor Rixford Snyder. In 1957 Provost Frederick Terman tapped Brooks for the position of Assistant to the Provost and Director of the Summer Session. From 1965 to 1971 Brooks held the position of Vice Provost. When this taping session took place, he was Provost Emeritus of the Claremont Colleges of California.
Donald T. Carlson returned to Stanford in 1951 as Assistant Director of Information to Director Fred Glover. His first meeting with Dr. Sterling had been a year earlier when he was Executive Secretary of Oregon State College. He served in the General Secretary's Office (now Development) 1952-54, as Assistant to the President, 1954-61, and in both the University Relations Office and President's Office, 1961-68. He was Director of University Relations in the Office of Public Affairs at the time of this taping.
Kenneth M. Cuthbertson came back to the University in 1954 as Assistant to the President, replacing Robert Wert as Dr. Sterling's budget control officer. He very soon became Dr. Sterling's point man in all matters of financial consequence to the University. Cuthbertson was named Vice President for Finance in 1959, and later took on the responsibility for managing the University's fund raising program as well. He was the principal University officer responsible for the successful conduct of two major fund raising campaigns, the $100,000,000 Plan of Action for a Challenging Era, 1962-64, and the Campaign for Stanford, 1972-77, that reached a total of $304,000,000. From 1970 to 1977 he was Vice President for Development. He held that title as emeritus and was President of the James Irvine Foundation when this taping took place.
Frederic O. Glover joined President Donald Tresidder's staff as Director of Information in 1946. His acquaintance with Wallace Sterling began in the early 30s when he was training for the Stanford boxing team and Dr. Sterling was a graduate student working out regularly in the gymnasium. Glover moved into the President's Office to replace Tom Spragens as Assistant to the President in 1954, and became Executive Assistant to the President in 1959. He served in that capacity until Dr. Sterling's retirement in 1968 and continued with President Kenneth Pitzer. In 1970 Glover became Secretary to the University, continuing his responsibility for trustee affairs, a title he held as emeritus at the time of this taping.
Robert H. Moulton, Jr. came back to Stanford from the Ford Foundation in 1957 as Assistant to the President. He was Dr. Sterling's aide for financial forecasting during the planning period that led to the PACE campaign of the early 60s. In 1960 he was also made Associate Director of "Project M" (for Monster), when a two-mile-long electron accelerator was only a pile of plans on paper—lots of paper. Moulton continued to be an assistant to Dr. Sterling until 1968. He retired from the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center in 1983 as Associate Director Emeritus.
Lyle M. Nelson left the vice presidency for University Relations at the University of Michigan in 1961 to become Stanford's Director of University Relations in Dr. Sterling's administration. He was public relations and political counsel to Dr. Sterling for the remainder of his tenure and continued to be his informal counsel through his years as chancellor. Nelson served in the faculty as Professor of Communication and Journalism and as Chairman of the Department of Communication. He was nearing emeritus status when this taping session took place.

Scope and Content Note

Nine men who worked closely with President J. E. Wallace Sterling during his administration gathered together in the Stanford Faculty Club one afternoon following his death (July 1, 1985) to share their thoughts about the kind of man he was, the problems he faced and how he dealt with them, and not least, some of his accomplishments.

SC1017_S4_Siegman

Physical Description: 1 audiocassette(s)

Biography/Organization History

Tony Siegman was born November 23, 1931, and raised in rural Michigan. He received the AB degree summa cum laude after three years as a National Merit Scholar at Harvard, where he played the clarinet in the Harvard Marching Band. After two years on a cooperative plan with the Hughes Research Labs in Culver City, leading to an MS degree in Applied Physics from UCLA in 1954, he followed his former Hughes supervisor, Dr. Dean A. Watkins, to Stanford as a research assistant. He was appointed to the Stanford faculty on an acting basis in 1956 and received the PhD degree in Electrical Engineering in 1957 with a dissertation on microwave noise in electron beams and traveling-wave tubes. Shortly thereafter he switched to work on microwave masers and parametric devices, which, after 1960, evolved into a research and teaching career in lasers and optics. He was promoted to full professor at Stanford in 1964 and retired from his Stanford position as the Burton J. and Ann M. McMurtry Professor of Engineering in November 1998. Following his formal retirement, he continued to lecture, consult, and publish in his field, including work on gain-guided optical fibers and fiber lasers. In 2010 he made a round-the-world trip on behalf of LaserFest, celebrating 50 years of laser innovation. From 1999 through 2011 he spent winters at north Tahoe, cross-country skiing daily with his wife and dogs. A campus resident, he was a founding officer of the Stanford Campus Residential Leaseholders, Inc., and also served on the boards of the Stanford Historical Society and the Stanford Emeriti Council. His other interests included antique scientific instruments, opera, sailing, and snorkelling. During his Stanford career he supervised some 40 PhD dissertations and published numerous scientific articles and three textbooks: Microwave Solid-State Masers (McGraw-Hill, 1964), An Introduction to Lasers and Masers (McGraw-Hill, 1972), and Lasers (University Science Books, 1986). Lasers, at 1,283 pages, became the standard reference in the field. He was regarded by many as a true patriarch, since one of his Ph.D. students, Stephen E. Harris, continued on to his own prominence on the Stanford faculty and in turn supervised the Ph.D. of (now) Stanford professor Robert L. Byer. Byer in turn supervised the Ph.D. of (now) professor Martin M. Fejer, several of whose students have gone on to notable careers and have mentored students of their own, making four generations of academic "offspring" in Quantum Electronics and other fields. Burton J. McMurtry, another of Tony's early Ph.D. students, served most recently as president of Stanford's Board of Trustees. Tony was Director of the Ginzton Laboratory from 1978 to 1983 and again in 1998-99, and served on numerous academic committees and as a member of the Stanford Faculty Senate and its Steering Committee. He spent sabbaticals as Visiting Professor of Applied Physics at Harvard in 1965, Guggenheim Fellow at the IBM Research Labs in Zurich in 1969-70, and Humboldt Senior Scientist at the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics in Garching, Germany, in 1984-85. Tony was an active participant in the historic first Quantum Electronics symposium at Shawanga Lodge in 1959, which marked the start of serious research into lasers. Thereafter, he began to move his research from microwaves and masers to optics and lasers. Early in his career he was Program Chair for the 1966 International Quantum Electronics Conference and Conference Chair for the 1968 IQEC, and later served as co-director of laser schools in South Korea and Taiwan. He was a member of the U.S. Air Force Scientific Advisory Board during 1974-80 and served on advisory groups for NBS, NIST, NSF, and other government agencies. He received a number of awards from major professional societies, held several patents in his field, and was elected to the National Academy of Engineering in 1973 and the National Academy of Sciences in 1988. In 1996 he was elected as Vice-President of the Optical Society of America, serving as President of the OSA during 1999. He married the former Virginia (Jeannie) Howard in 1974. He is survived by his wife Jeannie, his children by a previous marriage: Anne Lorraine (Jessica), Winn, and Patrick; by his stepdaughter Elaine Lissner; and his two grandchildren.

Scope and Content Note

Oral history interview traces his path to Stanford and his career as a faculty member, focusing on Siegman's education from 1949 to 1957 as an undergraduate at Harvard, a Hughes Aircraft Company work-study fellow at the University of California in Los Angeles, and a Ph.D. candidate at Stanford University.
