Identifications by Patricia Cook Bennett (nee Patricia Pearl Cook), who graduated from Newhall School (eighth grade) on June 9, 1939.

Researcher Tricia Lemon Putnam determined that Ruth R. Pengilly (of Minnesota) was one of three teachers who lodged with Gwenfred L. McAllister at (what was then) 1016 Walnut Street in Newhall — the others being Tillie F. McConnell (of Nebraska) and Lucia G. Root (of Arizona). Pengilly, who was 25 in 1930, was divorced; McAllister (28), McConnell (29) and Root (25) were single. Click here to view the Census record.

This is the fourth Newhall schoolhouse, erected in 1928 at what is now 24607 Walnut Street. (The first burned down, the second met an uncertain fate and the third was outgrown). The fourth school burned down in February 1939 (just prior to Patricia's graduation) and was rebuilt in place.
