Scope and Content

The files of the History Department are diverse and fairly complete and include correspondence, minutes, memoranda, course materials, enrollment records, and reports. A few of the subjects covered by the records are: establishment of the Political Science Department; report on the four-quarter system; History Club minutes; course offerings including those taught in both World Wars; the Army Specialized Training Program of 1941-1945; Independent Study; Problems of Citizenship; Western Civilization; international relations committees; and university-wide committees on faculty self-discipline and general studies. There is also a manuscript History of the History Department.
Boxes 1 through 9 were transferred to the Archives in 1966; a folder by folder survey of the papers was made but only names of important personalities were recorded. Boxes 10 through 21 were transferred to the Archives in August 1975. Boxes 10-15 contain the files of Prof. Gordon Craig; in boxes 16-21 the name of the department chairman or faculty member who created the file, where it can be determined, has been included in brackets after the folder title. Boxes 16 through 21 are restricted; please consult the University Archivist for access. Two letters dated 1903 from Max Farrand (then Dept. head) to Henry Cannon, describing the methods of running classes and department affairs, were given to the Archives in November 1970 by Mrs. Leland Brown.
This collection complements the Edgar E. Robinson Papers which were received in 1964. For a complete history of the History Department of Leland Stanford Junior University consultation of the Robinson Papers is essential.
