Stanford publishes brief, staff-written obituaries of alumni. You may submit obituary information online or via mail or email. Please use only one method of submission. When possible, please include the alum's full name, class year, city and state of residence, age, date and cause of death, activities at Stanford, career and personal highlights, and survivors (and their Stanford class years, if any). Copies of newspaper obituaries are welcome.
We depend on readers to bring some of our best stories to light. We also depend on alumni for essays and Stanford memories.

You can send ideas via email, fax or mail.
