Taunton Business College
Bristol County, MA Biographies





Taunton Business College. - This institute was established in January, 1895, by George W. Livsey of Attleborough. Mr. Livsey was formerly in the manufacturing jewelry business at Attleborough, and realizing the need of a college where young people of both sexes could have the opportunity of learning a practical business course to fit them to take official positions, came to Taunton, and started the present institution. To say that it has been a success is unnecessary; one only has to visit the pleasant rooms in the Bristol County Bank building during school hours and see the different classes at work, to be convinced of this fact. Mr. Livsey has two of the best teachers he can procure, who are proficient in all branches which pertain to a business education, and have the faculty of imparting what they know to the pupils, so that when they graduate they have no difficulty in obtaining positions in the mercantile world. It is evident from the success in the past, and the increased attendance at the college, that it has now become one of the permanent institutions of the city.
