I Ion. Cliarlcs Stanford owned the " Hermitage " on the Middle
Road, at Schenectady, in 1873 {See Pearsons Genealogy of
the I'iist Settlers of Scheneetady, pp. 6j, 281). When a young
man, he became a railroad contractor, and for several years,
was engaged in the construction of railroads in Western Mas-
sachusetts, at Pittsficld and North Adams-, and in Eastern New
York, along the Hudson River. Gold was discovered in Cali-
fornia, in 1849, and the great wave of excitement which swept
thru the country, led Charles and his bro Eeland, to seek their
fortunes in the new Eldorado. The former went to California
in 1S50, and founded a commercial house that soon became
one of the largest and wealthiest on the Pacific slope, with
branches in Melbourne, S}'dney and New Zealand. {See 86)

Elizabeth Lathrop, b. at Albany, N.Y., Aug, 25, 1828, dau.
of Dyer Lathrop and Jane Ann Shields.

He became a lawyer in 1849, '^"t ^^ter three years practice at Port Washing-
ton, Wis., the gold fever was irresistable and he went into the diggings in Cali-
fornia. In a few years he secured gold eno to enable him to settle as a merchant
at San Francisco [Sec 84)- He rapidly became a popular and influential leader
in politics, business and public enterprises. He was a delegate at the convention
in Chicago, at which Abraham Lincoln was nominated for the presidency, and he
was elected Governor of California in 1S61. He was one of the great war-
governors on whom Lincoln leaned heavily for support and counsel. T'ar seeing




and shrewd, with a keen eye for the development of the Pacific Slope, he ad-
vocnted a transcontinental railway, and became president of a company formed
in lS6l, for its construction. Tiie stories about his personal supermtendence of
the construction and about the number of miles of track he laid in a day, are well
known. He also helped to construct other railroads, and he soon became known
as " the railway king."

Shortly after the death of their only child in 1884, tliey determined to
found a university as a memorial of that son. It is related that when consider-
ing this matter, they visited Harvard University. After having been shown all
about, Mr. Stanford suddenly inquired what such a university plant was worth ;
when he was told, it is said that Mrs. Stanford, eagerly grasping his arm, ex-
claimed with that intensity and ardor so characteristic of her : " we can do it,
Inland, we can do it ! " He was twice elected to the United States Senate, from
California, 1885 to 1S97, but died during the latter term, at Palo Alto, and was
buried there. After his death a question arose as to whether he had not defrauded
the United States in some of his railroad transactions. The question was carried
to the courts and Mrs. Stanford was cut off, temporarily, from the use of most
of lier income. It is said that she was allowed only one thousand dollars a
month. She had been contributing largely from her current income, to the
resources of the University, and it would cripple the institution seriously to have
that contribution cease; she resolved to give the bulk of what was allowed her,
to the University, saying, " I have seen the time when I had to live on $100. a
month, and I can do it again." Her interest in orphanages and hospitals is well
known. But the founding and endowment of the Leland Stanford, Jr., Univer-
sity, at Palo Alto, where their fine estate was located, will be the lasting memo-
rial above all others, to perpetuate 'their names and ensure enduring gratitude
from the public. After his death, her interest and generosity towards tlie
University was unflagging, and on her death, the bulk of her fortune went to it;
this institution has become one of the most richly endowed seats of learning in
the world.

Beside their large country estate at Palo Alto, they had a magnificent resi-
dence on Nob Hill, at San Franscisco, popularly referred to as the Stanford
Palace. This was destroyed in the great earthquake and conflagration of Apl 18,
