San Francisco College for Women (CA)

The Internet Archive offers a wonderful 12+ minute video from the Prelinger Archives of students involved in various campus activities during the mid-1940's.

The institution was founded in 1898 as Sacred Heart Academcy in Menlo Park, CA. It became the College of the Sacred Heart in 1921.  After a move to San Francisco, CA in the 1930's, the name was changed to San Francisco College for Women.  The name was changed again to Lone Mountain College in 1969 and the institution became co-educational.  It was acquired by the University of San Francisco to become USF's Lone Mountain Campus in 1978.
