Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
These papers contain files of organizations and institutions with which Menzies was associated (including Santa Barbara Mission and University of California, Santa Barbara), as well as personal papers and subject files (people, places, subjects). Menzies spent years in India with husband Ernest Menzies, who was a businessman there. Jean Storke Menzies was daughter of Thomas Storke (owner, publisher of the Santa Barbara News-Press) and was a journalist herself. Many of the files contain articles by her and related background research matter.
Jean Storke Menzies was born December 30, 1904, the first child of Thomas and Elsie Smith Storke. She obtained a bachelor's degree from Vassar and was the first woman to receive a master's degree in physics from Stanford University. After Stanford, she taught physics at Vassar and later taught at a private school in San Francisco.
