Re: She majored in History at Stanford.
Thank you very much. In fact, before giving the reply, I had read that material provided by Chicken Sandwich.

It was because I doubted whether a small 'h' could be used that I started the thread. I have never said that Oxford Dictionary (of course it can be wrong) is always correct; neither have I said the example sentence in that dictionary is exclusively correct.
Anyway, thank you for providing a good example sentence; I will write it down in my notebook.
