Stanford University Faculty Memorials
The Stanford University Academic Secretary's Office ensures that Memorial Resolutions are prepared for each Stanford faculty member who was an active or emeritus member of the Academic Council when he or she died. A small committee comprised of the deceased's faculty colleagues writes the tribute, which is subsequently presented at a meeting of the Senate of the Academic Council. Senate members stand for a moment of silence after the memorial statement is read.
The Stanford Historical Society is pleased to make these Academic Council documents available to the community through the SHS web site.
