History

Sargent Hall
Sargent Hall

Founded in 1906 by lawyer Gleason Leonard Archer, Suffolk University was initially named Suffolk School of Law. The School's goal was to "serve ambitious young men who are obliged to work for a living while studying law." Archer believed that growing waves of working immigrants should be given opportunities to study law, similar to their wealthy counterparts. Image File history File links Sargent_Hall. ... Image File history File links Sargent_Hall. ... Gleason Archer, Sr. ...


In 1907, Archer moved the school from his Roxbury home into his downtown law offices. A year later the first of Archer's students had passed the bar, leading to a boost in registration.


By 1930, Archer developed Suffolk into one of the largest law schools in the country. At the time, fewer than 2 percent of Americans could afford to attend college, so Archer decided to create "a great evening university" that working people could afford. The Suffolk College of Arts and Sciences was founded in 1934, and the Sawyer Business School -- then known as the College of Business Administration -- in 1937. That same year, the three academic units were incorporated as Suffolk University.
