Lawrence Business College
Established in 1869 by W.H. McCauley, Lawrence Business College (LBC) was the first business college in Kansas. The school was located in the Lawrence National Bank building on the third and fourth floors. The large enrollment numbers that grew each year forced LBC to move to 645 Louisiana. Between 1900 and 1920 newspapers like the Lawrence Daily Journal World and The Topeka Daily Capital had an entire page dedicated to the benefits of attending LBC. The college taught young men and women the tools needed to successfully enter into the business world. The biggest advertisement was for the typing classes the school provided. LBC no longer exists, but there is a lack of information as to when and why the college shut down.
