Fisher College Librar 3 5620 50557532 8 TO THE GOLDEN ANNIVERSARY of the Fisher School, we, the Class of 1953, dedicate the Beacon. For the past 49 years the Fisher School has surged ahead as a school where girls interested in the secretarial profession might acquire the best train- ing possible. In its 50th year the School has achieved recognition as a Junior College. With deep gratitude we wish to thank all who have given so unspar- ingly of their time and efforts to con- tribute to the higher education, fine ideals, and the cherished memories which we have gathered during our stay here at Fisher. 2 € € un io iJ e e 118 Beacon Street Boston Massachusetts LITERARY PHOTOGRAPHY Dorothy Mastrorillo, Co-Editor Rose Marie Tetreault, Phyllis Lasselle, Co-Editor Co-Assistant Editor Donatienne Bosserdet, Co-Assistant Editor ART AND LAYOUT Irene Baskiewicz Carolyn Fisher Nancy Lillibridge Marion Pratt Joanne Aimone Barbara Burke Priscilla Burnham Mary Crowley Betty Dargan Patricia Dunham Mae Friswell STAFF Margaret Johnson Marie Lockwood Audrie Macleod Doris J.

M.A. 11 LILA DAVIS WHITING FOUNDERS 12 Waltham, 1916-1922 160 Beacon St., 1949-1952 There must be something in the air of the wide open spaces of midwestern prairies that feeds the spirit of youth which is determined to owe to no one, to be its own boss and to direct its own way of life. The father and mother of M. C. and E. H. Fisher desired for their three growing children an opportunity for an education higher than that which could be obtained in the one-room country schoolhouse in Manti, Iowa. Only the wealthy could send three children to college in those days so the father sold the farm and moved to Shennadoah, Iowa, where a private teachers ' college (then a Normal School) of good reputation was located. He bought a large brick house where the mother let rooms and took students to boa rd while he went into the livery business and also hauled coal and wood. At this teachers ' college, M. C. took, besides the normal course, a business course; E. H., after finishing the normal course, interested himself in ornate handwriting and went to Ohio for special instruction in it. The typewriter was then unknown. After some teaching experience in the West, E. H. came to Boston and took a teaching posi- tion at Burdett College. At that time his finan- cial resources were so low he was forced to pawn his overcoat and his framed diploma, but he boldly registered at a leading hotel and started his teaching career. He never recovered his diploma! He was joined by his younger brother the next year when he came to Boston and found employment in a mercantile office and a part-time teaching position. A year or two later he joined E. H. at Burdett as teacher and registrar. A school of their own was always their pre- vailing thought and ambition. M. C. ' s wife says that even during courtship days if she heard it once, she heard it a hundred times, " Now, the night school should pay the rent. " Both E. H. and M. C. married and established homes; in addition, both assisted in caring for their parents. There was no old age pension, no social security then. In fact, there was al- most no such thing as a pension in any form; and that midwestern engendered spirit of ow- ing no one. being one ' s own boss, directing one ' s own life, and providing one ' s own secur- ity was nurtured and grew to full bloom in the hardy New England climate. And though both wives were the cautious, fearful, " bird-in-hand- being-worth-two-in-the-bush " types, the men still dreamed and talked about the idea of a school of their own. They finally looked at buildings in Boston and in some of the surrounding towns and decided on Somerville. They took their small savings — startlingly small — and invested in school furnishings. Their dreaming had ceased. A school was born; Winter Hill Busi- ness College was launched in a few rooms in the Malta Temple Building located in Gilman Square, Somerville. The school was well received. One promi- nent man put his arm across M. C. ' s shoulder and said, " Good luck to you. Fisher, perhaps your school will relieve some of the congestion up here at the high school. " Then almost everyone ' s education was fin- ished with grammar school. Fisher training added to this grammar school qualified girls and boys for fine positions. Mrs. M. C. Fisher remembers so well when the first student registered. She says that M. C. framed the first deposit! The girl is still living and today is Mrs. Ivor Olsen of Broadway, West Somerville. At first, Sarah, E. H. ' s wife who had trained at Burdett as a bookkeeper, was the school secretary. The first paid secre- tary was a young woman named Olive Green, who later married Dr. Niles, a dentist in Somer- ville. Mrs. M. C. Fisher remembers the first social function with refreshments. There was an open house for the evening with a large attendance, and one young man had his hat stolen! About one hundred students enrolled the first year. The two brothers, who had little money to advertise and buy equipment, but had great faith, were highly respected in the business school field; and they offered a type of education much needed. The bicycle was the quick means of locomo- tion in 1903, and they spent much time travel- ing on their bicycles to call on prospective stu- dents. The railroad was the transportation for the students from the communities north of Boston which patronized the school. The school was an immediate success and soon much additional space was acquired to care for the ever-increasing enrollment. The average age of students was probably about sixteen years as most of them came right from grammar school — in those days high school education was the higher education for the few. The school was known as Winter Hill Busi- ness College. As it prospered, another school was started in Roxbury to care for the students in the communities south of Boston. For a school which was expanding into other areas, a local name was not desirable; so the name was changed to Fisher Business College. The second school was opened at Dudley Street Terminal in 1910 and met with immediate suc- cess. Although the school is no longer there. 15 the brass letters with the name of the school are still in the cement sidewalk. A third school was opened in Cambridge a few years later and then another at Waltham. These two schools were purchased and had been running for several years prior to their purchase. Mr. M. C. Fisher became the overall princi- pal. The local principals were: Mr. E. H. Fisher, of the Somerville School; Mr. J. E. Studley, of the Roxbury School; Mr. H. M. GunsoUey, of the Cambridge School; and Mr. Horace Carter, of the Waltham School. Each of these schools prospered, particularly with the impetus of training disabled veterans following World War I. However, in the middle twenties when trans- portation had improved materially, it was thought wise to join the Waltham-Cambridge institutions at Cambridge, and to bring the Roxbury school into Boston proper with a fine location at 30 Franklin Street, opposite Filene ' s. For several years there were schools at Cam- bridge, Somerville, and Boston. The school at Cambridge was an old build- ing and fires became too prevalent in the lower floors. When the fourth fire burned out the school, it was necessary to move immedi- ately to Boston and additional space was acquired. SOMERVILLE— In keeping with the trend, in 1918 the school acquired a beautiful estate on the top of Winter Hill. This school continued as a co-educational institution under the leader- ship of Mr. E. H. Fisher with the assistance of Mr. H. M. GunsoUey until 1936. At that time the partnership of E. H. and M. C. Fisher dissolved and an educational corporation was estab- lished. With this new status, Mr. Albert Fisher assumed the leadership of the Somerville School, now exclusively for girls. However, 1947 found veterans clamoring to attend school so this school was devoted to the training of veterans exclusively, and the girls were trans- ferred to the Boston location. At this time the Board of Trustees felt that with veterans as a foundation. Fisher could con- duct a separate school for men. Because the metropolitan area of Boston had undergone many changes, it was thought wise to transfer this school for men to Boston; and 160 Beacon Street was acquired on a lease basis as an experiment. With the development of the Kor- ean situation and so many men going into the military service, it was found best to discon- tinue this division in June, 1952. A fine group of men were graduated in these years from 1948 to 1952 and all have assumed responsible positions in business. BOSTON— 1936 found this school as an edu- cational corporation and new plans were con- sidered to expand this school. It was not until 1939 that a new location was acquired with the purchase of 118 Beacon Street. This was a major step for the school, and in the ensuing years it has indeed justified itself. Two years in the new location found the enrollment tripled. At this time the Boston school was still co- educational and continued so until 1942 when it became a school exclusively for girls. The school began to attract many students from out of town, some working for room and board and others living at various student dor- mitories which are available in Boston. The Trustees felt that if young women from out of town were to be entrusted to the care of the school, dormitories should be provided to super- vise these young women. In 1945 the first dormitory, Florence Hall, was opened at 112 Beacon Street, with accommo- dations for 26 students. It was decided to con- duct the dormitory on the cooperative basis; that is, the girls would do a certain portion of the work. This is similar to that type of dormi- tory conducted by many of the women ' s col- leges in the country. It was very successful, and another dormitory was acquired in 1946 — Sarah Mortimer Hall, at 86 Marlboro Street, with a capacity for 40 girls. A third dormitory — Andrew Hall — was ac- quired in 1951 and Edmund Hall in 1952, thus providing dormitory accommodations for 120 young women. These four dormitories, together with the ad- ministration and classroom building at 118 Beacon Street, provide a fine plant for the young women who came from 12 states and 3 foreign countries this year. Mr. Sanford Fisher joined the teaching staff of the school in 1928 and Mr. Myron Fisher and Mr. Albert Fisher in 1935. The educational corporation. Fisher Business School as named in 1935, was changed to The Fisher School in 1944. From this time it was the intention of the board to become a junior college and aradually standards were raised, teacher qualifications raised, a well-organized library established, and liberal arts subjects added so that young women would receive not only the technical training necessary for good secretaries, but also a background enriched for living in today ' s community. The Board of Collegiate Authority recoanized Fisher as a junior college in the spring of 1952, and the name was then changed to Fisher Junior College. 16 KATHLEEN ABBOTT Springfield, Vermont Course: Stenographic.
