INTRODUCTION


The Timothy Hopkins Room, located in the northwest corner of the third floor of the Bing Wing, houses the office of the Associates of the Stanford University Libraries (ASUL).

HISTORY

Timothy Hopkins served as a Stanford University trustee for fifty-one years, established the town of Palo Alto, donated his private collection of books to the University Library, established the Hopkins Marine station at Pacific Grove, helped create and support the Lane Medical Library, and, with his wife, organized the Stanford Home for Convalescent Children.

The Hopkins Room is a charming period piece from the early decades of the 20th century. It is furnished with bookcases, paintings, other art objects, and wall coverings which came to Stanford from Mrs. Hopkins in October 1937, when the room was dedicated as a memorial to her husband.

The Timothy Hopkins Room in the Bing Wing memorializes the many contributions to Stanford University of this generous businessman and book lover.
