Presley Hubschmitt and family

Bon voyage, Presley!

It is with mixed emotions that we will bid farewell to Presley Hubschmitt, who is leaving Stanford Libraries in mid-March to begin a position as Processing Archivist at the Bancroft Library at UC Berkeley, her alma mater. She will be splitting her time between the Regatta facility in Richmond and the Berkeley campus. Her passion for her work and her fabulous sense of humor will be greatly missed. We are sad to lose our dear colleague, but happy that she will be working so close to her home.

Please pardon our radio (blog?) silence for the past several months--it’s been a whirlwind of boxes, folders, files, and finding aid updates here in University Archives! 

The Stanford Archives has been furiously processing our backlogged collection materials with the help of our new student workers for the fall quarter. Since the late summer, we have processed approximately 154.25 linear feet of archival materials. (For scale, 1 record storage carton measures 1.5 linear feet, while 1 manuscript box equals 0.5 linear feet.)

The Stanford Archives is ecstatic to announce that a new Spotlight exhibit on the history of Latina/o/x community at Stanford is available for public viewing. This exhibit builds on the LibGuide published last year which identified primary and secondary sources about the history of the Chicana/o-Latina/o-Latinx community at Stanford University.

As a freshman who didn’t get to experience any Stanford campus and community life this past year, I arrived on campus in June hoping to immerse myself in everything Stanford--past and present. My internship with the Stanford Historical Society Oral History Program certainly helped me accomplish this.

I am excited to share that the John J. Johnson papers are now available for research through the University Archives. John J. Johnson (1912-2004) served as a professor of Latin American history at Stanford from 1946 to 1977, and continued to contribute to the field through research publications, journal editorship, teaching, and mentorship long after his retirement. This collection represents the latter part of Johnson’s career.
