Fisher College Fisher College--now located in Boston's Back Bay--was originally opened in what was predominantly the working-class city of Somerville, and had its beginnings with educational entrepreneurs who believed the immigrants of that city in the early 1900s needed a way out of their unskilled employment. In 1897, brothers Myron C. Fisher and Edmund H. Fisher moved from Shenandoah, Iowa, to Somerville, Massachusetts. They had studied education in a midwestern normal school but, unlike many others of their day, sought new opportunities in the east. While teaching at Burdett College in Boston, the brothers saw a need to start a different kind of school. And so in 1903, they opened the doors of Winter Hill Business College. The brothers went door-to-door selling courses; the curriculum was individualized and students could study whatever they needed to land the job they were seeking.
