: : Anyone know who Leonard R Flynn was and why we have a school named for him? SFUSD has no clue.
: Hi Kurt,
: There is a Leonard R Flynn found in the CADI http://vitals.rootsweb.com/ca/death/search.cgi
: who died 08/16/1981 in San Mateo Co. Checking my SF City Directories I found a Leonard R Flynn in the 1955 SF City Directory working as a teacher in SF and living on 18th St. Later in the 1974 SF City Directory he is a principal at the Le Conte School in SF and living in San Bruno. I don't know what year the school was built, but if it was after 1981, they probably named it after him in tribute. If you can find the date the school was built, you may find in old newspapers, at the Public Library, who and why they named the school after him.
In fact, Leonard R. Flynn School used to be Le Conte School.
