George Walter Hinckley died in 1950 and the facility to which he had devoted much of his adult life underwent a number of changes.

Good Will's growth had largely ended by the mid 1930s.

The post World War II era presented new challenges to Good Will and the directors decided to turn it into a prep school.

The focus on serving needy youths and Hinckley's insistence on family-size cottages had ended.
