Stanford Staffers began in 1951 as the Distaff Club, a group of women staff members who
gathered for lunch and companionship. Faculty wives served as sponsors, hosting teas and
luncheons at their campus homes. Ann Sterling, wife of the late President J.E. Wallace
Sterling, was the founding faculty wife-sponsor.
