Early Stanford University Recruiting Brochure

This nice “Stanford Days” brochure was produced in the 1930s to be given to prospective students.

It describes the campus, environment and area well. The tuition is $100 per quarter ($130 for the Graduate School of Business and $115 for the School of Medicine). There is no smoking on the Quad. “A few days after the University opened, Mrs. Stanford asked the students not to smoke inside the Quadrangles or on the arcades, so they might be kept clean.” Stanford men and women have respected her wish.” The booklet contains vintage black and white pictures of life on the idyllic campus.

We especially like these hand-drawn illustrations of the campus:
