Professor Amin Banani was one of the first Iranians to receive a Ph.D. in history from Stanford University. He went on to a sterling career in founding the Iranian Studies Program at UCLA, he remained an engaged Stanford Alumni and an avid supporter of the Iranian Studies Program at Stanford. He not only agreed to teach a seminar at Stanford, where he hoped to bring together the many strands of his research, but generously donated his books to Stanford. In memory of his long affiliation with Stanford, we are happy to announce the launch of the Amin Banani Memorial Fund, generously donated by the Taslimi Foundation.
