1927 – Cornelia McKinne Stanwood becomes the new principal of the school

A close friend of Sarah Dix Hamlin, as well as a member of her faculty, Mrs. Stanwood bought one of the Flood mansions, which had been built by James L. Flood and later given by Miss Jennie Flood to the University of California. Under Mrs. Stanwood’s guidance, the Sarah Dix Hamlin School moved to its current site on Broadway and continued to develop its fine academic program. Its graduates went on to competitive colleges nationally. In 1947, Mrs. Stanwood retired after 19 years of devoted service.
