This collection includes reports, proposals, agenda, minutes, transcripts of public hearings, and other documents pertaining to development in San Francisco, especially Diamond Heights and the Western Addition, 1948-54; and reports, booklets, and brochures pertaining to planning in general, 1940-70. Of note in the latter group is the book MEMOS FROM RUSSIA 1969; A STUDY--INDUSTRIALIZATION OF THE BUILDING PROCESS IN RUSSIA AND ENGLAND, written and illustrated by Bill Caudill and privately printed in 1970 by the architectural firm Caudill Rowlett Scott.
Harry L. Sanders came to Stanford in 1956 as associate director of planning. In 1960 he became director of planning, the University's first full-time director; he retired in 1976. In addition to managing the complex development of the campus, Sanders was a cofounder of the Society of College and University Planning, member of the design team for California State Highway 280, and planning consultant to Menlo College and Tulane University.
