Hoover Tower, a 285-foot landmark, houses the Hoover Institution on War, Revolution, and Peace. The collections, begun in World War I by former President Herbert Hoover, are among the most extensive in the world. From the observation platform beneath the carillion at the top of the Tower, visitors may view most of the Stanford University campus, as well as the beautiful surrounding countryside.
