The Boston Vocation Bureau’s First Counseling Staff.

Much has been written about Frank Parsons’s role in the founding of Boston’s Vocation Bureau. Written shortly before his death in 1908, a letter in the Yale archives highlighted Parsons’s handing over legal power of attorney to Ralph Albertson (Parsons, 1908a). Something else is found in this piece of history conspicuously tucked into the upper, left corner of the handwritten note. Listed in the margin of the Vocation Bureau’s letterhead, along with the executive committee and trustees, are the names of the first counseling staff of the Vocation Bureau and its three satellite offices. Mrs. John T. Prince or Lucinda Wyman Prince, Albertson, and Philip Davis all carried the tide of “Associate Counsellor” (Parsons, 1908a, p. 1). Albertson was the most well known of the trio because of his close association with Parsons as a confidant and literary executor. Davis received brief mention from time to time, and Prince was but a mere footnote in counseling literature. Yet, Prince, Albertson, and Davis were each highly successful, well-respected individuals with their own significant contributions to vocational guidance as well as other movements. Whether through genius, luck, or a combination of both, Parsons enjoyed the good fortune of this vibrant and capable trio: the educator, the dreamer, and the immigrant. At the 100th anniversary of both the bureau’s founding and its founder’s passing, perhaps the field is now ready for a more in-depth look at the individuals who worked side by side with Parsons operationalizing a vision and cementing a legacy.
