Suffolk University Oral History Project (SOH-009)
Dorothy M. McNamara reflects on her forty-seven year career at Suffolk University, during which she served as stenographer, law school recorder, bursar, and finally as alumni secretary until her retirement in 1974. McNamara discusses her experiences working at Suffolk; presidents of the university; the general alumni association that she helped start; and the addition of buildings to the Suffolk campus. She also remarks upon the fiscal management techniques that allowed Suffolk University to stay open during the Great Depression, World War II, and the Korean War.
