Jane Stanford dedicated the court in 1900 with a plaque on the west wall honoring those Stanford volunteers of the Spanish-American War of 1898. The memorial service for Leland Stanford, who died on June 21, 1893, was held under the gabled arch at the south end of the court, and Jane Stanford’s own funeral procession marched through the court in 1905 en route to the mausoleum in the arboretum. Rodin’s Burghers of Calais, 1884–95, now grace the southeast lawn. THE ORIGINAL CAMPUS: 1886–1906 frieze, sculpted by Schmid, who was best known for his fountain sculpture, 32 Palm Drive Entry Approaching Stanford: Planning Around the Oval Immediately north of the Outer Quad along the fringes of the arboretum, Jane Stanford erected several monumental structures of which only two survive, the museum and chemistry buildings (a library and gymnasium were destroyed in the 1906 earthquake).
The rough-faced ashlar sandstone of the arcade and buildings, and the ﬁnely striated column shafts set on plinths and decorated with capitals of almost child-like simplicity (the tongue-and-heart patterns are derived from Mont Saint-Michel), lend the architecture the massive, “enduring and substantial” quality called for by Leland Stanford. ” Stanford took precautions to protect the buildings from earth- 27 quakes: he set the original Inner Quad on broad, ﬂaring foundations. This and the buildings ﬂanking Palm Drive—with disastrous consequences in 1906 and 1989.
Quadrangles, capable of continual extension along their major axes, permitted Stanford’s “indeﬁnite expansion” of intellectual knowledge. “We may always advance toward the inﬁnite,” Leland Stanford affirmed. With their organizing axes, the quads would bring order and civilization to the surrounding wilderness. The seemingly unlimited extent of grounds, held in trust by the university in perpetuity, was to become its outdoor laboratories, including the Stock Farm, with its own quadrangle of barns and kindergarten track, a true attempt at taming nature.
