The John W. Gardner Legacy Oral History Project, which began in early 2017, is sponsored by the Haas Center for Public Service, the Stanford Historical Society Oral History Program, the John W. Gardner Center for Youth & Their Communities, the Gardner Family Trust, and the Stanford University Libraries Special Collections & University Archives. With the transfer of 100+ linear feet of John W. Gardner’s papers from the Gardner home to Stanford University Libraries Special Collections in late 2016, the project sponsors launched an oral history initiative to capture recollections of Gardner and reflections on his life from people who knew him well. The project includes interviews with people who knew Gardner in various capacities, including as colleagues, students, mentees, friends, and family members.
