Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
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.
