The following article is from the San Francisco Call, reporting on the laying of a cornerstone for a new building on the Castilleja campus --
San Francisco Call, Volume 107, Number 152, 1 May 1910 SCHOOL CORNERSTONE LAID AT PALO ALTO
SCHOOL CORNERSTONE LAID AT PALO ALTO
Exercises at Site of Recitation Hall of Castilleja
[Special Dispatch to The Call]
PALO ALTO, April 30.With appropriate exercises the cornerstone of the new recitation hall of Castilleja preparatory school for girls was laid today. Curtis Hillyer of San Francisco presided. The program was as follows:
Castilleja song, by the school; address, by President David Starr Jordan of Stanford university; address, by Marshall Black of Palo Alto; dedication song, by the school; laying of cornerstone. Miss Lockey, principal of the school, presiding; song, "America," by the school; benediction, by the Rev. N. Hays.
The Castilleja song was written by Miss Helen M. Hatch and the dedication song by Miss Alice M. Richard, teachers at the school.
The Castilleja school is located in a tract of four and a half acres in Palo Alto. A series of buildings, including dormitories, a recitation hall, a "domestic science bungalow" and a large gymnasium, are being built on the grounds.
Wonder what the founders, and grads of Castilleja of that era would think of the school today?
