Letters Home
 

Longtime Los Altos resident Carol Stearns wrote letters to her mother nearly every day during the war years on Stanford University’s campus.

Stearns, who died in 2009, described being a new student at The Farm when she first drove up from Southern California in 1943. Chuffed to have been asked on a date her first day on campus, she also described a rough arrival the night before. After locating her residence hall, Roble, with some travail, Stearns found the upperclassmen lounging around within less than warm.
