Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The Andrew P. Hill, Jr. Papers consist of biographical materials, memoirs, correspondence, speeches, course outlines and teaching notes, building designs, California Dept. of Education, Div. of Schoolhouse Planning surveys of district buildings (1927-1930) and draft chapters of at least one book on school design and construction. The Papers are arranged in series which are partly chronological (in accord with the various positions Mr. Hill held when he created or collected them), and partly based upon the types of materials involved.
Andrew P. Hill, Jr. (1886-1973), son of a well-known 19th century California photographer, was trained in industrial arts education at San Jose State College and in architecture at Stanford University. Following graduation he worked as a draftsman and taught wood and metal crafts in the School of Education at San Jose State College (1910-1917). After working at other industrial arts teaching positions in the San Francisco Bay Area (1918-1922), Hill became Assistant Superintendent of the San Jose city schools (1923-1927).
