including “The Gathering of the Nuts.”
And courses included "History of Pageantry" and "'A study of the girl herself" . . . .
FROM FENWAY TO WENHAM
For its first 66 years, Gordon's home was the Fenway neighborhood in downtown Boston. First located in founder A. J. Gordon's Clarendon Street Baptist Church, and then sandwiched between the Museum of Fine Arts and numerous other bustling colleges . . . .
