    Description of the Collection

    The "Origins of Modern Society" video series features lectures in Western culture by sixteen Stanford professors. The tapes were shot during a one-time-only course developed by Professor Wayne S. Vucinich and offered to Stanford University seniors as a capstone to their undergraduate education. The video series was produced by the Stanford Alumni Association in conjunction with Stanford Instructional Television.
    In addition to the 16 lecture tapes, the collection includes an introductory tape with background on the origins project, a "video table of contents," and brief interviews with several of the professors.
