Marx's papers date from 1873 to 1942 and include correspondence, reports, research notes, manuscripts, drawings, financial
records, clippings, minutes, reprints, and photographs. The papers primarily relate to engineering projects in which Marx
was involved, largely dams and water systems in California, including projects at Stanford and Palo Alto. Other subjects include
his years as student and lecturer at Cornell University; his civic work; and other professional activities.
Charles David Marx was one of Stanford's original faculty, the Old Guard. He came to Stanford in 1891 as Professor of Civil
Engineering and taught here until his retirement in 1923. He formed close friendships with his students and was affectionately
known as Daddy Marx.
