    Description of the Collection

    The Stanford News Service is part of the Office of University Communications. The News Service reports and disseminates much of the University's news, via the STANFORD REPORT daily news email. Previously the department was known as the Stanford News and Publications Service, and was a part of the Public Affairs Office. The News Service produced the weekly CAMPUS REPORT (later STANFORD REPORT) and the monthly STANFORD OBSERVER. The News Service was originally created to take over some functions previously performed by the General Secretary's Office. In 1946 a news and information office was created when Frederic O. Glover was appointed Director of Information; when Glover became secretary to the president, Peter C. Allen was named director of Information and Publications. In 1962, The office was expanded and became part of the newly created University Relations Office with Peter Allen as director of Publications and Robert W. Beyers as director of the News Service. News and Publications was again united when Allen was named Associate director of University Relations (and later University editor), and Beyers became director of News and Publications.
