Fred Stark Pearson (FSP) was born on July 3, 1861. After his father, an engineer on the Boston and Lowell Railroad, died in 1876, the family moved to Medford where FSP began work as a railroad station agent. His skill and intelligence drew the attention of members of the Tufts faculty, and Amos Dolbear convinced him to enroll at Tufts. FSP graduated from Tufts with a Bachelor of Civil Engineering in 1883 and a Master of Mechanic Arts in 1884.
