- These files were maintained by Robert W. Beyers and kept separate from the general files of the News Service, although they relate primarily to his work as director of the News Service. The files include correspondence, press releases, copies of university correspondence and memos, ephemera, articles, and clippings. Subjects include public perception of Stanford (1972), reactions to articles in the CAMPUS REPORT (1968-89), the Vietnam War and anti-war protest, H. Bruce Franklin, the ASSU and social regulations for women students (1965-66), John Voevodsky (inventor and entrepreneur), the proposed Reagan Library at Stanford, Donald Kennedy, and indirect cost recovery at Stanford. Among the ASSU files is a copy of the results from a 1965 questionnaire of women students and a transcript of a KZSU program "The Seventy Third Year" broadcast on May 30, 1965 featuring interviews with Richard E. Guggenhime, Phillip H. Rhinelander, and Scott McBride regarding the 1964-65 academic year. The "Comments 1988-89" files include notes and letters on the controversy over a speech by George Shultz.
