"Stanford University Libraries acquires large Bahá'í collection"



This month, Stanford University Libraries established the first academic, university-based Bahá'í collection in the United States. The donation of one of the most extensive Bahá'í libraries in private hands preserves a history that might otherwise be lost.

The collection includes more than 1,000 books, letters, photographs and rare, out-of-print early Bahá'í publications from around the world, as well as other archival materials and papers. The new Jack H. Lee and Arden T. Lee Fund for Bahá'í Studies will ensure that the collection of archival material will continue to grow.
