WHY THE “McCOMB CAMPUS”?
The McComb Campus of the Westside Waldorf School located at 17310 Sunset Blvd. is named after the Marshall and Margherite McComb Foundation, the Trustee of which is Paul J. Livadary. Over the past two years, the McComb Family Foundation extended substantial financial gifts to the school to facilitate the school's relocation to and renovation of its scenic campus in the Pacific Palisades, now named the McComb Campus of the Westside Waldorf School. The McComb Foundation was created under the will of Margherite McComb. Mrs. McComb, maiden name “Germo”, was raised in San Pedro, in an Italian Catholic family. She was a modern woman well ahead of her time, supporting herself for a number of years in various capacities, during which period she worked at the William Morris Agency. Her life was not without adversity: Margherite’s first husband died one year into their marriage and her sister died soon thereafter in a plane crash. Happily, she remarried Judge Marshall McComb, a Yale educated lawyer who served many years as a Justice on the California’s highest court. The McCombs were married for 35 years and kept homes in both San Francisco and Los Angeles. After he died, Margherite created the Foundation in both their names. Following her death, the McComb Foundation has, among other charitable purposes, established a law library at Southwestern University School of Law, and supported research for medical problems of aging including at the Hospital of the Good Samaritan and UCLA. The Westside Waldorf School is forever full of gratitude for the McCombs and is proud to be part of their prodigious legacy.
