The State

Stanford University's 100th birthday celebration this weekend included an address by school President Donald Kennedy and a procession to the marble-lined mausoleum of the school's founder and family. On March 9, 1885, then-Gov. George Stoneman signed special legislation giving Leland Stanford permission to build the school on donated farmland 35 miles south of San Francisco.
