The papers include class files from the course The Female Experience: Victorian Heritage, Part II, containing the syllabus, lecture notes, exam questions, minutes of the teaching collective (1978-79), and the course reader; one file of Rosaldo's lectures on women's position in "simpler" societies, which includes one letter from Rosaldo to Jane Collier, Oct. 31, 1975; and typescript papers with some published versions of Rosaldo's book reviews and articles, 1972-1983. An addition to the collection in 2006 (largely unprocessed) includes course files, 1973-1981; research notes, including field notes from 1963 and 1966; correspondence; reprints of her articles; her undergraduate papers; and condolence letters to Renato Rosaldo after her death, 1981.
Michelle Zimbalist Rosaldo earned her doctorate in social anthropology at Harvard in 1972. She joined Stanford's faculty in the Department of Anthropology in the same year and quickly rose to national prominence as an anthropologist, sociolinguist, and feminist scholar. She was co-chair of Stanford's first Committee on Feminist Studies (1980-1981) and helped develop the curriculum for the Program in Feminist Studies. In 1979 she was awarded the Dinkelspiel Award for outstanding service to undergraduate education. She died from an accidental fall while conducting research in the Philippines in 1981.
