Scope and Contents

The Evening School of Commerce Bulletins contain information on the location and a brief history of the School; a calendar for the academic year; a list of faculty; general information, including admission, registration, tuition and fees, scholarships, and student activities; and course listings in Accounting, Economics, Finance and Investment, Marketing, Social Science, Law, Insurance, English, Mathematics, Modern Language, History, Transportation, and Science. The 1932 publication also includes a register of students for the 1931-1932 academic year. Both issues also contain photographs of 223 Walton Street, NW, the School's location during the 1930s, and a drawing of the main campus of Georgia Tech.

The Georgia Tech Archives holds only these two issues of the Bulletin for the Evening School of Commerce. Although the Annual Announcements of Georgia Tech mention the Evening School of Commerce as early as the 1914-1915 school year, and reference is made to a specialized bulletin for the Evening School of Commerce as early as January 1917, these bulletins apparently were not retained.

History of the Georgia School of Technology Evening School of Commerce

The Georgia School of Technology's Evening School of Commerce was organized in 1914 and continued until 1933. According to some sources, the Evening School of Commerce actually began a year earlier, in 1913, with classes offered on the Georgia Tech campus, in the Chemistry building. In any case, for the following years the School operated in various locations in downtown Atlanta. A co-educational school, it was formed to accommodate working men and women seeking further training in business. Faculty included regular Georgia Tech faculty as well as several special lecturers drawn from the Atlanta business world. Students were able to work toward the degree of Bachelor of Commercial Science by completing 120 hours of college work.

In 1930 the School moved to 223 Walton Street, a building that was purchased and renovated in time for the 1931-1932 school year. The School remained there until 1938. Two years after the move to Walton Street, the School was taken over by the newly formed Board of Regents for the University System of Georgia, and it changed names to the University System of Georgia Evening School. After further name changes in the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s, the School became known first as Georgia State College in 1961, and finally as Georgia State University in 1969.
