He was the first Chicano appointed full professor at Stanford. Castaneda received his a.b. from San Francisco State in 1948 and his M.A. and Ph.D. from Ohio State in 1951 and 1952. Prior to his appointment at Stanford, he taught at several universities including the University of Toronto, Queens College of the City University of New York, the University of Texas, and the University of California at Riverside, where he had been chairman of Mexican- American Studies.
