    Blair Business College Building today
    A fading sign for Blair Business College, which went out of business in 1933, is still on the Madison Building today. Blair Business College went out of business in 1933, the depths of the Depression in America, but it is remembered as part of the push for vocational training for those not headed to high school. There were several in Spokane before the Depression, trying to teach office skills such as shorthand, typing, bookkeeping and spelling and promise a rosy future in business. The Then and Now column for Monday, July 6 will about Hugh C. Blair and his business school, which started in another building downtown.

    • Education:

      I recently came upon a journal belonging to grandpa with the with various illustrations of various types of engine's in it. It clearly states the illustrations were drawings he did while going to Blair College in Spokane, Washington. The journal states it's start date was Dec. 5, 1917.

      After doing a search for the college I found the following article:


      Blair Business College
      Ghost Signs of Spokane Tour - Story 3
      By Frank Oesterheld

      At the corner of First and Post Streets stands a squat brick building upon which is painted "Blair Business College." The faded sign is visible from blocks away, but few people understand its importance to the educational system of Spokane in the early twentieth century.

      In a rapidly-expanding industrial economy, the business college was designed to churn out clerks, typists, and bookkeepers. Before the standardization of education in the second decade of the 20th century, most Americans lived in rural settings where education beyond high-school was not common. Furthermore, in the environment of rapid urbanization and industrialization, people left jobs in the countryside to train for more technical jobs in business and industry. Blair Business College offered practical education to those whose small budgets or lack of aptitude made them ill suited to the university. Instead, students prepared for pragmatic careers by taking courses in shorthand, penmanship, typewriting, and bookkeeping. Blair Business School, like many others, also doubled as a sort of supplemental high school, offering grammar, English, and Latin classes in addition to an abbreviated summer-school session.

      Blair Business School was, by all accounts, quite a successful enterprise. H.C. Blair organized the school in 1897, and within a few years over five hundred students were enrolled. The college advertised in rural newspapers aggressively, drawing prospective students from all over the Pacific Northwest. It also fielded baseball, basketball, and football teams that seem to have maintained consistently abominable losing records against Gonzaga, Washington State University, and even the local high schools.

      The school closed in 1933 during the height of the great depression. The building still stands today as condo space for the re-vitalized downtown district.
