    Biographical/Historical Sketch

    Stanford Staffers began in 1951 as the Distaff Club, a group of women staff members who gathered for lunch and companionship. Faculty wives served as sponsors, hosting teas and luncheons at their campus homes. Ann Sterling, wife of the late President J.E. Wallace Sterling, was the founding faculty wife-sponsor.
    In 1978, the group agreed to admit men and changed its name to Stanford Staffers. Organization goals include providing career support and sharing resources, networking, doing community service, developing and cultivating a diverse workplace and enjoying social contacts. Its activities range from monthly lectures on subjects as diverse as public service and tax planning to an "attitude adjustment hour," held every other month at a restaurant lounge after work.
