January 12, 2014 - History Mystery

The Montecito Historical Archives shared a photo of Alice Westwick teaching a class of students in what most think is the early 1900's. The question is, which school do edhatters think she was teaching in and approximately what year? The edhat detectives have been on the case, and as of Saturday evening this is what our subscribers discovered. Apparently there are interesting maps and photos hanging in the background, one subscriber found that the 1912 city directory listed Alice E Westwick as the principal of the Montecito School on San Ysidro Road. With that tip another commenter found that an Alice Eliza Westwick Cook is buried in Santa Barbara cemetery, born 1889 and died on February 23, 1918. With the burial tip, another commenter discovered that she bore two children and died shortly after the birth of her second child. Great job edhat history detectives! The Dedicated Staff is continually amazed by how quick and efficient everyone is when a subscriber asks a question. We look forward to learning more about our historical teacher Alice Westwick.
