The Shreve Building was home to Stanford Professor of Psychology Lillien Jane Martin’s Consulting Clinic (later “Old Age Counselling Center”) which opened in 1917. The first old age counselling center in the United States (and likely North America), it also served as one of the first standalone clinics for “normal” preschool age children. Martin was one of the earliest psychologists to use the title "consulting" and one of the few certified to employ the term by the American Psychological Association in the 1920s. Martin's assistant Clare De Gruchy continued to operate the Center after Martin's death in 1943, but it closed five years later following De Gruchy's untimely death.
