Miss Ransom and Miss Bridges’ School for girls in Piedmont, California, existed from 1908 to 1932. Low enrollments during the Depression years forced the school to close. However, when Dola Dunsmuir attended in 1920, the school was thriving. More than a finishing school for young ladies, the school offered a challenging curriculum for university preparation. The school had accommodation for 50 girls and offered frequent outings to concerts and plays as well as riding and hiking clubs. Students also performed an annual Shakespeare play.

In the early 1920s, Dunsmuir sisters, Dola and Muriel, and Muriel’s husband, Edward Molyneux, took time to tour the ruins of Europe in the aftermath of the war. Edward Molyneux was an ideal tour guide for the sisters, having served in 1915 with the Duke of Wellington Regiment on the Western Front. Although he was promoted to Captain for his actions in battle, injury resulted in the loss of sight in his left eye and withdrawal from active duty.
