Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Records cover three topics: Sigma Chi fraternity (issue of discrimination in membership 1965), Proposition 14 (written in 1964 to overturn California's Rumford Fair Housing Act, which prohibited discrimination on the basis of race and national origin), and student demonstrations and the McClellan probe (Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations headed by U.S. Senator John L. McClellan). Sigma Chi materials include correspondence, 1955-67, clippings and publications, 1965-67, and materials relating to a legal case against Sigma Chi in Colorado. The files on demonstrations and the McClellan probe, 1969, include news releases, drafts of administrators' statements before the McClellan subcommittee, news on SRI, President Pitzer's statements before the McClellan subcommittee, and letters from Stanford's legal service. The files on Proposition 14 include news releases, ads, clippings, newsletters, housing information, and articles on housing and property values. Major correspondents include Robert Beyers, Jack H. Friedenthal, Paul E. Kamerick, Kenneth S. Pitzer, and William R. Rambo.
Robert W. Beyers directed the Stanford news service from 1961 to 1990.
