    Biographical/Historical Sketch

    Cap and Gown, a women’s honor society, was established in 1905. Their mission is to honor and bring together women who have been constructively active in student affairs and the community so that as a group, they may meet to maintain and serve the ideals of Stanford University. Among their activities is a scholarship program, which has been operating since 1924.
