Found it at 17:40, 21 December 2002. Found it as described and in good condition. Cap has been painted over and is the same color as the column. A fence around the school made it impossible to get a coordinate at the brasscap.

The published coordinates (NAD83) off by about 0.2 mile when in WGS84 mode. Found by using the 1958 description: At Stratford School, on Empire Street between First and Third Streets.

The front of the school. The column with the brass cap can be seen below the and to the right of center of the 'California Distinguished School' sign.
