The Boston School of Occupational Therapy was founded in 1918 to assist in the rehabilitation of servicemen during World War I. Upon its affiliation with Tufts College's Division of University Extension in 1945, it offered young women a five-year course that combined academics, professional training and clinical experience. There was a two-year course for those who already held a college degree. Students lived in dorms on the Medford campus and took courses there and in classrooms in Boston. The school received funding from an annual series of classical music concerts. It merged with Tufts University in 1960.
