Fisher College Ltbrar 3 5620 50557539 3 oihe Cli ass or 1955 resents . . . Fisher Junior CoWe 118 Beacon Street Boston 16, Massachusetts PRESIDENT Sanford L Fisher B.S., Ed. M. The baton has now been passed on to you — as a member of the class of 1955. As final words from me, as President, I would suggest that you build for yourself a philosophy of life based on the following: 1. A genuine appreciation for your life, in this generation. It could have been in most any other, when circumstances were less favorable, and opportunities not for the many as they are today. A life entrusted to your own particular care, which if used, will contribute richly to a better today and tomorrow. 2. A sense of gratitude that you have been born in America. You are among the fortunate three per cent of the world who go to bed after three good meals every day. You have a position waiting for you, and a future toward which you can work. The other ninety-seven per cent go to bed hungry, are poorly clothed, live in squalor and filth, have nothing ahead which is any better than that of today, and their total income for a year will amount to about fifty dollars. 3. An awareness of the freedom whic h is afforded you. In so many of the sections of our world you would have been segregated according to your religion, color or family status. You would have been told where you would work, how long your day would be, what kind of work you must do, and what salary you would receive. But fortunately here in America you have, through high school and guidance pro- grams, been asked to read about vocations, talk to those who are in these, and visit typical examples of the ones which interest you most. And so now you are about to assume your place in your chosen vocation. But even now, you can choose what part of the city or the state, whether in a small or a large office, and what type of business will give you, in your work, the greatest amount of satisfaction and pleasure. 4. A sense of dedication. You have been placed here as some part of the plan of an all-wise Creator. You have been given the personality, ability, and opportunity to do something important. You have been given the privilege of choice of vocation and a training which is most adequate to meet your needs. Now, with these realizations in mind, let us make this personal dedication: " In my work and through my work, I dedicate myself to the highest ideals and service, that all may live more richly and completely.

This home, built for Mr. and Mrs. Henry P. King, stands a masterpiece of the art of the architect and decorator. The building is substantial in fact and in appear- ance, with solid foundations and fireproof construc- tion throughout. The facade, of gray Quincy granite, is of oval shape pierced by ample windows. A Renais- sance portal of voussoirs and prominent keystone en- closes a paneled teakwood door. The coffered barrel vault in the hall is typically Roman, as are the marble floors and wall niches, de- signed to hold statuary or urns. The corridor widens out into a reception hall that opens upward through the second story and is covered by a decorative opaque glass dome. In the hall a beautiful hanging stairway of marble curves upward to the second floor and con- tinues in a balcony. Both stairway and balcony have an exceptionally fine metal balustrade covered with 24-karat gold plate. Turning into the room at the left of the entrance, one finds the Oval Room, formerly used as a conserva- tory and now as a reception room. It contains a fine imported fireplace and paired columns from Italy. The arrangement of full-length mirrors gives light and a feeling of extended space. The inset wall and arched doorway at the west end of the room lead nowhere, but balance the door. Opposite this room is the Morning Room, now the school placement office. The style here departs The Ballroom during the " Kings ' Reign " from some of the details in the rest of the building and is less formal. The fireplace is English, and has Egyptian motifs of animals and human figures — the result of the interest in Egypt at that time. Above the doorways are copies of Bulfinch lintels. The spacious dining room, now used as the execu- tive office, presents the utmost in luxury and charm. It is beautifully paneled in priceless Circassian walnut, with a marble fireplace brought, as were the others, from Europe. The square shape of the room is soft- ened by the delicate circular pattern in the ceiling which is duplicated in the rug which was woven to order in Burma. The decoration is completed with set-in paintings above the doors and horizontal strip- ping exquisitely carved in Eastern vine, suggestive of Greek scrolls. Above the executive office is the library and lec- ture room. The doors are of the finest carved rose- wood, hung in the Italian style in an opening framed by Italian marble. On the ceiling are four panels rep- resenting a Roman duel, a feast to the victor, a dance to the bride, and finally the wedding scene. At the front of the second floor is the ballroom, with the formal symmetry and elegance that charac- terized the mid-Eighteenth Century mansion in Eng- land. At either end of the room are sculptured white marble fireplaces taken from the Torlonia Palace in Rome. The carved rosewood doors are framed in purple marble, quarried in Sicily. Two doors open out into the hall, and a third into a small room, pre- serving the symmetry of the openings. In the spaces between the doors, and over the fireplaces, are beauti- ful mirrors, framed by delicately carved panels and surmounted by elaborate gold decorations. The ceiling is coffered, with the familiar Wedg- wood figures in white against a blue background. The room is lighted by wall fixtures of silver and crystal chandeliers. At the front, the wide bay is hung with pale blue and gold drapes and is set off by columns. The two rooms on the third floor front were origi- nally the master suite of the house. Roman urns, gold cornices, and built-in bookcases characterize this room. Another fireplace is found here, this one of gray marble. The girls ' lounge overlooking the river has been redecorated, but in accordance with its original style. Perpendicular green and white stripes set a bizzare and modern tone to the room. French doors lead to the outside balcony. The fourth floor is used entirely for classrooms. The fifth floor presents the most complete change. Formerly the entire floor was divided into eight ser- vants ' rooms. Now there are two large rooms used for typewriting and one for office machine work. Stairs ascend to the roof deck, which is tile cov- ered. In the AMERICAN ARCHITECT, August, 1915, this building was described and illustrated. It says that the building cost $50 a square foot. There are 21,000 square feet, which would bring the cost to $1,050,000. Many parts of the building probably could not be duplicated at any price today. In adapt- ing the building to school purposes, none of its origi- nal beauty has been destroyed.

" The fathers experienced a typical day at Fisher by attending classes, climbing stairs, and hav- ing " lunch " in the cafeteria. Most of the fathers enjoyed the typing class, where they " learned " how to type. However, when they first went in, most of them were in a dilemma as to where to put what finger on which key! Some of the fathers were even called upon to give blood for experiments in the Medical Laboratory. For this generous act they were presented with a slide of their own blood — something every father wants! After classes, entertainment was provided by the Glee Club. The girls presented many familiar songs; and if you listened hard enough, you could hear some of the dads joining in. After the entertainment, refreshments were served in the cafeteria. This was a wonderful opportunity for the girls to show off the new cafeteria and Kanipus Korner and to convince Dad that life without " Stretch " is just not worth living! .J First Row: M. Huiett, B.

If in the twilight of memory we should meet once more, we shall speak again to- gether and you shall sing to me a deeper song. " It does seem like yesterday that we met, and now the dream is over. You did sing to us of the things you want to be, to do, to hope for— and from those longings we have tried to help you build a tower of learning, of education for the future, so that you might clirab its heights and turn when the dream would be finished upon the fullest days of your life. This has been a happy dream for usj we hope it has been for you. Sometimes we have been carried away upon a cloud of sweet contentment — when everything was going wellj so have you. Sometimes we have been startled out of this pleasant slumber-iike spell in the realization that there were things not quite so pleasant or restful that just had to be done. We have done them; so have you. And thus we have shared a great deal. We have played mth you, worked T-iith you, laughed with you, and sighed with you, Vfe shall miss you when you are gone. We are grateful for what you have given us — your life, your enthusiasm, your youth " , VJe hope vje have given you something for which you, too, may be grateful.
