History

Stevens–Henager, one of the oldest colleges in Utah, was established in 1891 by Professor James Ayers Smith, an educator in Nebraska, as Intermountain Business College to teach commercial subjects and place graduates in business positions. Paul Kenneth Smith, son of James Ayers Smith, served as an instructor at the college. For about 19 years, Stevens–Henager College was known as Intermountain Business College. In 1910, Professor J. A. Smith retired and sold the school to Mr. C. S. Springer, who changed the name to the Smithsonian Business School. In 1938, the college was purchased by Dr. David B. Moench, son of Louis F. Moench, a Utah educator and the first principal of Weber Stake Academy, which later became Weber State College. It then became known as the Moench University of Business and operated as such until 1940, when it was purchased by I. W. Stevens and renamed Ogden Business College. The name was changed to Stevens–Henager College in 1959.[4]
