The College

Grahm Junior College was one of the largest and most successful 2-year colleges in Boston.  It was a fully accredited (NEASC) college offering both the Associate of Science and Associate in Applied Science degrees.  It's School of Communications was recognized nationally as producing some of the best on-air and off-air talent.  The college consisted of three schools, Communications, Liberal Arts and Business.  At its peak, it had 1,250 enrolled students.  Founded in 1950, it graduated approximately 5,000 students over its 29 year tenure.  Grahm was located in Kenmore Square and was one of the few residential 2-year schools in the United States.

Purpose of this Site

 This site is the central information point for Alumni, Faculty and Staff.  It provides facilities for networking, organizing reunions, history of the school, copies of yearbooks,  

We are working to be the most authoritative source of information about our college.  We are always looking for information on the school, people, places, photographs, audio, video, stories and memoribilia. 

Web Site Contributors

We're a bunch of Alumni trying to keep us all together after all these years. Without a physical place to call home, without an alumni relations office, we have made this site site our virtual "home".

A note from Matt Hasson, Webmaster, 2000 to 2012

I first started this website in 2000 based on material I wrote for a TV production project I worked on when I was at Grahm.  I was given access to the schools archives which contained memorabilia from the Hotel Kenmore and early publicity releases from the Cambridge School. Additional research material I obtained at the City of Boston Buildings Department and the Boston Public Library.  I’ve had hundreds of people sign the guest book since I launched the page on AOL.  Now that original site is no longer, I hope to get more "Grahmites" reunited at this new location.  I’ve decided to streamline this new site somewhat by putting all the photos in a photo gallery on Google Picasa.  The guestbook remains with its many entries going back to 2001.
