Boston University Categorization

50 views
I have a profile of a woman who graduated from Boston University's College of Practical Arts and Letters in 1926. This began in 1919 as a secrectarial school and expanded, and it closed in 1955.

My question is how to set up a category. Do I

1. just use the Boston University category

2. set up a sub category of some sort under Boston University. What would it look like? Category: Boston University, College of Practical Arts and Letters? Category: College of Practical Arts and Letters?

3. just set up its own category and sub it under Category: Massachusetts Colleges and Universities.

THANK YOU for your input.

I would do the second option. Set up a sub-category (under the Boston University category) named Boston University, College of Practical Arts and Letters. Then mention in the category page that it was created in 1919 as just a secretarial school, which was expanded, then closed in 1955.

I was leaning that way because it makes more sense to do it that way. Thanks, Richard.
