Suffolk University grew from humble beginnings in the Roxbury parlor of Gleason L. Archer, a lawyer who had worked his way through high school and college. A chance meeting brought him together with a benefactor who loaned him money for his law school studies, asking only that Archer pass along the favor. By 1930, Archer had built Suffolk University into one of the largest law schools in the country. The College of Arts and Sciences was founded in 1934, and the Sawyer School of Management— then known as the College of Business Administration—was established in 1937. That same year, the three academic units were incorporated as Suffolk University. Suffolk University contains images that show the depths and breadth of this institution that has called Beacon Hill home for 100 years. Whether known as the Rams, the Ramblers, or the Royals, the Suffolk spirit shines through.
