Pressing Business: The Forgotten History of Stanford University Press
- Through some simple archival detective work, the staff of Stanford University Press (SUP) unearth the long and lesser-told history of the Press, from its humble origins in 1892 to its myriad transformations over the course of the 20th century. This history, studded with the stories of plucky pressmen, master craftspeople, and intellectual luminaries reveals a deep tradition of the Press’s pioneering spirit, its indelibly Californian character, and an unremitting commitment to plumbing even the most obscure corners of human inquiry. SUP Director Alan Harvey provided an update on this ongoing historical survey and presented some of the more intriguing, amusing, and even alarming events SUP staff have uncovered.
