Stanford Salutes Its Veterans with Solemn and Festive Activities
Professor and former dean Kathleen wrote the following article which appeared in the November 2010 edition of the Stanford Report:
In 1900, Jane Stanford dedicated Memorial Court, an elegant courtyard of lawns and flowerbeds framed by walkways, to the memory of Stanford volunteers who fought in the Spanish-American War, including two students who were killed in action.
Today, the university will commemorate Veterans Day by placing a floral wreath in Memorial Court – and another at the entrance to Memorial Auditorium – as tributes to veterans, past and present, of the Stanford community.
Stanford's veteran population includes undergraduates and graduate students, including students enrolled in the Law School, the Graduate School of Business and the School of Medicine.
