More information about Final Jeopardy:
Leland Stanford, Jr. died of typhoid fever at the age of 15 in 1884; as a memorial, his father founded Stanford University in Palo Alto, California.
Interestingly, a story began circulating on the Internet in the late ’90s claiming that the younger Stanford had been a Harvard student and that the elder Stanford had been rebuffed by the Cambridge school in their wishes to build a memorial, instead choosing to found Stanford. This was proven false by Snopes.
