The General Files section contains material on various subjects of interest to Miss Buckingham, a small amount of Stanford-related
correspondence, and ten folders of personal correspondence. Any professional correspondence is filed under the appropriate
subject heading (Radio, Speech, etc.). The Student Notes are Miss Buckingham's own from her student days, ranging from high
school to post-graduate work at Columbia University. The Courses section includes her students' papers and examinations, class
notebooks, and some of her own course notes. The folder in the Photographs section includes miscellaneous photographs and
negatives, most of them unidentified. One photo of interest is a snapshot of Miss Buckingham with Frances Theresa Russell
and Mary Yost, n.d.
Elizabeth Lee Buckingham was born on November 9, 1885. Her personal history is sketchy due to a lack of concrete information,
but she listed Palo Alto as her home town in the 1904-05 Stanford Register. She received her A.B. in 1910 and her A.M. in
1914 from Stanford, both in English. During 1908-09 she was an Assistant in English at Castilleja School in Palo Alto, and
during 1910-11 an Assistant in English at Stanford, after which she was on the Stanford faculty continuously until her retirement
as Associate Professor of Speech and Drama, Emeritus, in 1944. During many of her years at Stanford she shared a house at
534 Lasuen with several Stanford faculty women, among them Frances Theresa Russell, Mary Yost, and Edith Mirrielees.
