Michael Shapiro moderates a panel on Sunset magazine’s impact on the American West. Launched by Southern Pacific Railroad to lure travelers westward, the magazine moved in 1951 to the Menlo Park campus in the suburbs south of San Francisco. Designed by Cliff May and Thomas Church, Sunset’s seven-acre site became known as the “laboratory of Western living.” Shapiro, author of the Stanford magazine feature, The Legend of the Almost Lost, will moderate a panel that includes former Sunset editor Peter Fish, Stanford Libraries curator Ben Stone, and Elizabeth Logan, associate director of the Huntington-USC Institute of California and the West.
