The day we moved in Sunset Hill School When Mrs. A. Ross Hill, Mrs. William T. Pat- ton, and Mrs. Justin Bowersock founded Sunset Hill School in 1913, they intended to establish a school which "would be tree to put into practice progres- sive educational theory." With this purpose in mind, the school opened at Mrs. Hill's home in the fall of 1913. The next year it moved to 420 W. 57th Street, and in 1919 entered the present mainbuilding and lower school building. Sunset started as a grade school with .lulia Wood as its principal. In 1915, when Eleanor Field became principal, boys were admitted through the third grade, and French, folk-dancing, sewing, weaving, wood -and metal work, cooking, and na- ture study were added to the curriculum. ln 1917 Helen Ericson became principal llater headmistressl, and by 1919 classes were taught from nursery school through 12th grade, as they are now. The curriculum was also very similar to ours today, but French was begun in kindergarten. Miss Ericson was also responsible for many of our 5 Oth Anniversary Sunset Hill traditions, including Vespers, Revels, and May Day. May Day has changed considerably, however, for when Miss Ericson was here, May Day consisted mainly of a poetry contest. Mrs. Green came to Sunset in 1939, and since then the school has grown to its present large en- rollment and won an outstanding reputation as a college preparatory school. During her adminis- tration the first yearbook was published in 1954, and the Mellon Building, Holmes Building, and High School Building were added. Instead of reading statistics, however, one can probably best understand how Sunset has changed and grown by looking at one class, the class of 1927 ln 1927 the gym was dedicated, the school colors were green and white, Sunset beat Barstow in both hockey and basketball, College Boards were in June, and The Senior Gift was the por- trait of Helen Ericson, headmistress, which now hangs over the senior stairs. -6-
