About Dorsey Schools
A Trusted Michigan Career School for Over 75 Years
In 1934, Ruth Dorsey founded the Dorsey School to meet the growing demand in business for highly skilled operators of Victor and Burroughs' comptometer machines. In its day, the comptometer was the most advanced technology for data tabulation and was widely used, well into the 1960's.
