Looking closely at the Class of 1949 Commencement at The Fisher School, an all-women's junior college when this photograph was taken over 70 years ago. 

Annual tuition was $420. Nine courses were offered, ranging from executive to medical to legal secretarial. Subjects included shorthand, type-writing, social orientation, and psychology, in keeping with the catalog’s directive that “the secretary who wishes to rise above her…competitors is the one who devotes time to securing a broad cultural background in addition to vocational or technical training.” See if you can spot the seven changes with a second look at the Class of 1949 Fisher College commencement (no cheating!).
