Thanks to the Faculty "Unfold the latent energies and capacities for good in your pupils. Teach the great possibilities of man endued with divine Science." These directions for teaching Christian Science were given by Mary Baker Eddy in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures Cpage 1285. The faculty of Berkeley Hall, by fulilling these directions, have guided and uplifted our Class of '62 through the years. Through their patience, enthusiasm, and unselfishness, they have taught us social graces and sportsmanship, as well as the scholastic work. Especially uplifting is the teachers' concept of their pupils. They never limit nor label a student, but help each individual to work to his full capacity. The greatest thing we have gained under their guidance is the practical application of Christian Science. The combined efforts of our teachers have made Berkeley Hall what it is. Not only the teachers that the class of '62 has had, but all the new teachers are giving future Ninth Grades the opportunities cherished by our class. Although we graduate and leave Berkeley Hall, their care continues. The work habits, the manners, and especially the applicable use of Christian Science they have taught us, we can never forget.

THE HISTORY OF BERKELEY HALL SCHOOL The real history of Berkeley Hall does not lie in the course of human events, but rather in spiritual unfoldment. In the summer of 1911, Miss Leila Cooper and her sister Mabel decided to open a private school. They were joined by Miss Mary E. Stevens, who later became the school's first prin- cipal. A small English dwelling was procured on West Avenue across the street from Berkeley Square in Los Angeles. Thus the school was named Berkeley Hall. Later that year the school opened with an enrollment of twenty-six pupils, ranging from Kindergarten to Fourth Grade. Since all the teachers were earnest students of Christian Science, the enrollment was limited to children of Christian Scientists. By the end of the second year the number of pupils had in- creased so much that it was necessary to find new and larger quarters on Fourth Ave. School opened in the present location at 300 North Swall Drive, Beverly Hills, in September of 1925, At first, four buildings were erected: the Junior Building, now housing the Intermediate classes, the Senior Building, the home of the Seventh and Eighth Grades, the office and the orig- inal auditorium, which now contains the Superior Ninth Grade, the music shop, and drafting rooms. This last building once housed a music department, a ballroom for dances which were held every other week, and an assembly hall seating 400 with a balcony, stage and dressing rooms. One incident shows the spiritual foundation upon which Berkeley Hall was built. When the cement foundation for the original buildings was laid, the city building inspector remarked that they were needlessly thick and substantial. One of the founders dreamed that the world came to an end, but these foundations still stood. The symbolism of this dream is appar- The Mother Goose Building First, Second, and Third Grade Classrooms rf-aim The Intermediate Building Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Grade Classrooms 4 ent, for the school has been placed on a firm foundation of Principle, and that foundation is secure. In the fall of 1925 Berkeley Hall opened on its new cam- pus with an enrollment of 120 pupils. The cafeteria and the Mother Goose building were next built. Soon a Ninth Grade was added, and six years later a full senior high was established. From the beginning Berkeley Hall had been a boarding school. The apartment in which Mr. Nelson lives, and two buildings since removed across the street on Clark Dr. were dormitories. In 1939 the main part of the auditorium, which was con- nected to the present Ninth Grade room, burned. The burned section was torn away, and the rest of the building was used to house the Nursery and Kindergarten. In 1953 the new buildings were built for these grades south of the campus. The Drafting and Music Departments, as well as the Ninth Grade, now moved into this vacated building. Mr. Nelson came to Berkeley Hall in 1941. A year later the boarding department was closed. Now all faculties were de- voted to the growing Lower School and the junior High. In 1953 a dormitory and lot on Clark Street were sold. This money was used to build a swimming pool and locker rooms. Most of the buildings and land of Berkeley Hall represent donations by Berkeley Hall parents and kind friends. The new auditorium, built in 1957, was one evidence of Berkeley Hall's generous and grateful friends. The tradition of Blues and Whites is over 25 years old. The original teams were called "Chis" and "Gammas." New things are unfolding every year, new changes, experi- ences and demonstrations, and each new class adds another page to the History of Berkeley Hall School.
