Records pertain to the administration of the office at Stanford and the overseas campuses in Great Britain, Italy, Austria, France, Germany, Spain, Mexico, and other locations.
The Overseas Studies Office was established in 1958, and Robert A. Walker, a professor of political science at Stanford University and chairman of the Committee on General Studies, was appointed director. The first campus was set up in Beutelsbach, German in 1958 and shortly thereafter, in October of 1960 two additional locations in Tours, France, and Florence, Italy, were opened. Later, as demand grew, centers were opened in Britain at Harlaxton in 1966, in Austria in October 1966, and at Salamanca, Spain in October 1968.
