You probably know someone who attended King’s College -- I know a few! Established in 1901 and a fixture in Elizabeth since the ‘50s King’s College (formerly King’s Business College) taught accounting, typing and “secretarial science” to countless Charlotteans. Now, after 117 years the school announced it will close. Take a look at the slideshow for some full-page ads from the 1940s and 1950s.
