This report, commissioned by the Stanford Planning Office, documents the original interior paint colors used in the Museum. Included in the report are photographs and colored sketches.
The Stanford Museum was built in memory of Leland Stanford Jr., son of Leland and Jane Stanford. It was one of the first structures in the United States to be built completely of reinforced concrete, engineered by Ernest Ransome. Construction was begun in 1891; the Museum opened its doors in 1894.
