Collection Overview
Creator:Northeastern University (Boston, Mass.). Alumni Association of the Evening School of Business.
Title: Alumni Association of the Evening School of Business ledgers
Call Number:A77
Volume:0.30 cubic ft. (1 flat box)
Scope and Content Note:This collection comprises four ledgers documenting the dues paid by members and donations received for the George S. Clarkson Scholarship Fund. George S. Clarkson graduated from the School of Commerce and Finance in 1914. The ledgers cover the years 1929 to 1959, with the exception of 1941 to 1945.
Historical Note:Responding to the needs of the Boston business community in 1898, the Greater Boston Young Men's Christian Association (YMCA) began to offer business courses to train clerks. By the turn of the century, with business practice becoming increasingly complex, the need to educate businessmen in more modern techniques of administration and contemporary business ethics became apparent.   In 1907, the Evening Institute at the Greater Boston YMCA (the predecessor to Northeastern University) formed a part-time School of Commerce and Finance. The School of Commerce and Finance operated at Northeastern University until 1960 when its programs were merged with other part-time and evening curricula in Northeastern University's University College (now the School of Professional and Continuing Studies).
