Grand Island Business College Graduates
Grand Island Daily Independent
Saturday, August 12, 1916

    "This paper contains the names and positions of a few of our former students. We could print thousands if neccessary, but we consider the following pages sufficient proof. Scarcely a day goes by that we do not hear from some boy or girl who has attended the Grand Island Business College, telling of their success in the Business World. Scarcely a day passes that some graduate of the Grand Island Business College is not placed in a good position in some bank or other business house. As POSITIVE PROOF of our claims, we publish here a list of several hundred of the successful graduates of our school who are now occupying first-class positions. Thousands of others could be added to this list, but for lack of space they are necessarily left out."
(Transcriber's note: Unfortunately, no dates of graduation are given.)

A Brief History of the Grand Island Business College
From the "History of Hall County," pub. 1920 by Buechler, Barr & Stough

    This institution was started in 1885 by Prof. Hargis, Prof. Reicher and Prof. Evans. By 1897 the institution used the whole upper floor of a building at Third & Spruce. A business course, a normal course, and a shorthand course have been the main courses offered by the school. The school has in recent years been quartered in the five-story buliding at South Locust street between Second and Third streets.
