Today, one hundred years after the founding of this school, records, programs, catalogues, and other data concerning the school have become scattered throughout California. Data located in historical depositories are sparse and incomplete. Much information lies in the hands of private persons not known or available to the general public.

From generation to generation it becomes increasingly difficult to locate data concerning earlier generations and often the data have been unknowingly destroyed. The main purpose for this project then, is to preserve knowledge of this early California school in a single source for the reference of future historians.
