was not the only educational institution to which Speare devoted
his efforts. From 1918-1947, he was the president and principle
stockholder of the Chandler School in Boston, a private, professional
training school for women established in 1883. When the school’s
director left to support the war effort in 1942, Speare, at the
age of 73, volunteered to assume his post, which he held for five
years. Speare resigned as President and Director of the Chandler
School in 1947.
