From the Guidebook:
This 1919 residence, a unique
blend of pueblo and international style elements, embodies
Mrs. Herbert Hoover's innovative architectural concepts.
It was executed by architects A. B. Clark, Charles Davis,
and Birge Clark, and was maintained as the Hoover family
home from 1920 to 1944, it was here that Hoover received
news of his election as President of the United States
in 1928. Upon Mrs. Hoover's death, the house was given
to Stanford University.
