Stanford president David Starr Jordan issued a circular letter in October 1906 to college presidents and faculty on the issue
"should the same salary be paid to men bearing the same title." Included in this collection are the letters received and John
Maxson Stillman's resulting article, in typescript form and as published in SCIENCE (February 15, 1907). The majority of the
letters are from faculty at Stanford and the University of California, Berkeley; other colleges represented include Cornell,
University of Chicago, Harvard, University of Michigan, and University of Wisconsin.
John Maxson Stillman was professor of chemistry at Stanford University.
