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).
In 1927 he was appointed head of the newly-created Division of Schoolhouse Planning in the State Department of Education. Due partly to personality conflicts with a new superior, Hill left this job in 1933 for a position with a Los Angeles architectural firm which expected to receive federal contracts to restore earthquake-damaged schools in the area. When these appropriations were not forthcoming, he accepted the Superintendentship of the Santa Maria City Schools (1935-1940).
In 1940 Andrew Hill became Superintendent of the Stockton Unified School District. He served in this capacity until retiring in 1950. Hill was responsible for the establishment of a strong shop curriculum in the Stockton schools. During his years in Stockton, Hill taught summer courses in school administration and school design at the College of the Pacific. After his retirement from the Superintendency of the Stockton City Schools, Hill sold mutual funds for a few years during the late 1950s.

Scope and Content

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:

BOX ONE: BOOK CHAPTERS [N.B.--Hill drafted several books on related subjects over a period of many years. While division head of Schoolhouse Planning in the California Dept. of Education, he seems to have planned to co-publish a work with Dr. John C. Almack of the Dept. of Education. At another time, Hill also appears to have begun a book on junior high schools [viz. Ser. 3, Box 3]. He seems frequently to have re-used material from one book in the body of another. In the course of doing so, he often renumbered and retitled the chapters. Hill also culled material from book chapters for use as lectures [viz. Ser. 3, Box 2]. Unfortunately, we have only one book outline and this does not entirely correspond with the chapter titling or numbering of many of the manuscript chapters in the collection. It has, nonetheless, provided a broad outline for the organization of materials in this box.]
