The Four Musselmans and Their Great Business College REPRINTED FROM THE QUINCY OPTIC MORE and more is the world disposed to do homage to man ' s creative faculties — to his powers to create or to perpetuate. There is a distinct fascination in writing about the creation, the strengthening, the broadening, of things of great useful- ness. Especially does this intense interest apply to writing about the creating or perpetuation and development of great things in the educational sphere, things having to do with the right fitting of youth, things having good and useful influ- ence on thousands and thousands of human lives. Such a great and educational cre- ation for instance, as the Gem City Business College, of Quincy, Illinois. It is not easy for the present gen- eration in Quincy to realize that this magnificent seat of learning, so much admired and respected by all, has been built up in the short space of two score years, and none but our oldest citizens can remember when there was not a Gem City Business College. Prof. D. L. Musselman, the Founder As the sculptor makes from the clay the marvelous figure; as the painter makes from his colors the wonderful picture; as the composer creates the immortal melody, so Pro- fessor Musselman created the Gem City Business College. His clear, true vision saw the need of such an institution. His remarkable abilities, his splendid qualities, his knowledge of youth and its needs, his industry and application, enabled him to supply that need. He began with three students forty-one years ago. Today the total enrollment nears the fifteen hundred mark. Every year adds to the enrollment, because every year adds to the prestige and influence of the institution. Perpetuated by the Founder ' s Three Worthy Sons Fortunately for the continuation of his great College, its steady development, its broadening of influences. Professor Musselman had three worthy sons of his own to train. Sons not only worthy of their D. L. MUSSELMAN Sr. Founder D. L. MUSSELMAN President father in point of character, but sons whose ambition was to take up and continue the great work he so well founded. If the great educator can look down and behold the carefulness, the capacity, the splendid interest and enthusiasm with which his loyal and talented sons are carrying on his magnificent College, he must indeed feel that his care in training these sons has borne excellent fruit. D. L. Musselman, the Eldest Son D. L. Musselman, the eldest son, named after his father, took his pre- paratory education in the Quincy High School, Shattuck Military School in Fairbault, Minn., all the courses in the Gem City Business College and also studied law under Judge Mc- Crory. Upon the completion of his courses in the Gem City Business College, he taught in the college for two years. In 1900 he became Secre- tary and Treasurer of the College, and in 1906 he became General Manager, which position he held until 1910, since which time he has been Presi- dent and Treasurer of the institution. Among the other activities of this fine young man, he is vice president of the Quincy Chamber of Commerce, a director of the Quincy National Bank, a director of the Quincy Boule- vard and Park Association, a director of the Y. M. C. A. and a trustee of the Methodist Church. Among the important positions he has held with notable credit, was the presidency of the National Commercial Teachers ' Association, which held its convention in Pittsburg in 1907. The ability and sound judgment with which Mr. Musselman is filling the responsible position of President of the College, have won the highest commendation everywhere. V. G. Musselman, the Second Son The second son. V. G. Musselman, attended the Quincy High School, after which he matriculated at the University of Illinois, taking the liberal arts course, following which he took the courses in the Gem City Business College. While at college he was Sergeant Major of the University Regiment. V. G. MUSSELMAN Secretary T. E. MUSSELMAN Instructor
