THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF SOUTHERN 
MISSIONARY COLLEGE TAKES PLEASURE IN 
EXTENDING THIS PERSONAL INVITATION TO 



VISIT 



Collegedale, Tennessee 

Come and enjoy the natural beauty of the college campus; visit 
the new library; attend some of the classes; have a look at the 
rooms in the Residence Halls; see the varied industries operated 
principally by student labor; inspect the dairy herd and tramp 
over the farms connected with the college; and go to the stu- 
dents' cafeteria and be served a variety of tasty vegetarian 
dishes. The Board believes that such a visit would be both 
enjoyable and profitable to you and your friends, that you 
would be delighted to get some first-hand knowledge of the 
Christian "College of Standards," and that you would find 
Southern Missionary College ready to serve you or any member 
of your community at any time.

which this college offers.

SOUTHERN MISSIONARY COLLEGE BELIEVES THAT: 



"The greatest want of the world is the want 
of men, — men who will not be bought or sold; 
men who in their inmost souls are true and 
honest; men who do not fear to call sin by its 
right name; men whose conscience is as true to 
duty as the needle to the pole; men who will 
stand for the right though the heavens fall." 

"Such a character is not the result of accident; 
it is not due to special favors or endowments of 
Providence. A noble character is the result of 
self-discipline, of the subjection of the lower to 
the higher nature, the surrender of self for the 
service of love to God and man." 



Therefore the abiding aim of Southern Mis- 
sionary College is ever to be a genuine Christian 
institution with a carefully selected and main- 
tained Christian environment in which young 
people of high purpose can come together tc 
seek the effective help of consecrated, inspiring 
teachers while they prepare themselves and help 
to prepare each other to supply that "greatest 
want of the world," and to render effective Chris 
tian service at home and abroad.

HE LIBRARY is one of the most frequented buildings 
on the campus. It has readily accessible knowledge with which 
to reward all energetic students and to assist them in securing 
the broadest possible knowledge in their brief years at college.

LIBRARY

1 HE Arthur G. Daniells Memorial Library, completed 
early in 1947, is the latest addition to the physical plant of 
Southern Missionary College. As the heart of the college, the 
library is the chart room of the institution it serves. It is 
maintained as an orderly, well-regulated, and well-catalogued 
storehouse of useful and indispensable knowledge.

It has been said that men and ideals combine 
to produce institutions; that institutions in turn 
make men; and that men foster and perpetuate 
the idealism of their extraction. It was indeed a 
happy combination of both men and ideals which 
in 1916 brought about the transfer of the South- 
ern Training School from Graysville to a small 
farm some three and one-half miles from Oolte- 
wah, Tennessee. It was renamed Southern Junior 
College. No college man would have accepted 
this institution as a college, but those humble 
men were endowed with a strong faith and a 
clear vision that would make their dreams come 
true. Today Southern Missionary College stands 
as a monument to the faith of those pioneers. 
There were a number of buildings on the new 
school farm, the best of which, the old planta- 



tion house, was made to serve as dormitory for 
the young ladies and kitchen and general dining 
room for the school family. Four of the seven 
cottages formerly used as slave houses were 
turned into dwelling houses for teachers, while 
the other three, together with a number of tents, 
served the boys as their temporary homes. An old 
barn was fitted up as an administration building, 
though it looked so bad that everybody spoke of 
it as "the cracker box." The self-sacrifice of a 
loyal constituency provided more and more land 
and buildings, until at present there is nearly a 
thousand-acre estate and campus with a physical 
plant valued at one million dollars, which con- 
stitutes a splendid testimony to a people's firm 
faith in God.

Southern Missionary College aims to pro- 
vide the highest and the best in mental and moral 
culture and to furnish the most helpful facilities 
it can afford for intellectual and physical de- 
velopment as well as for industrial training. 
Although the majority of the graduates enter 
professional lines of work, students are encour- 
aged to learn at least one trade or occupation 
whereby, if need be, they may earn a livelihood 
when they leave school. Thus it sends forth its 



product trained in habits of industry and skilled 
in lines of useful and productive labor. 

Practical instruction is offered in agriculture, 
dairying, poultry raising, animal husbandry, fur- 
niture manufacturing, broom making, printing, 
building, campus maintenance, and in the domes- 
tic sciences, and with the anticipated addition of 
a new gymnasium the ideal vocational and physi- 
cal training dreamed of by our founders will be 
consummated.

SCIENCE building commensurate with the needs 
of Southern Missionary College has already been envisioned by an architect, 
and will, when the funds needed for its erection have been subscribed, fur- 
nish excellent class and lecture rooms for the departments of biology, 
chemistry, health, home economics, and physics. It will also provide all the 
laboratories required by these departments. How soon this great need can 
be supplied will be answered in a large measure by the response every friend 
and supporter of the cause of Christian education makes to this, the first 
general appeal Southern Missionary College has made to you for help for its 
expansion program.

HE race of mankind would perish, did they cease 
'other ... we cannot exist without mutual help. All, therefore, 
e*ed aid have a right to ask it from their fellow mortals; no one who 
is the power of granting can refuse it without guilt." Sir Walter Scott. 
Realizing this community's need of a health center where the well- 
known Battle Creek treatments could be offered to a needy public, Southern 
Missionary College has reserved a beautiful site on its campus for such a 
health center. There are many especially trained physicians who are willing 
and ready to operate such a health center. Let every potential giver be 
challenged.

1 O COMPLETE its training of the head, the hand, 
and the heart, Southern Missionary College needs a suitable 
auditorium for the social and spiritual side of its work. Such 
a building could be so constructed that it could house the 
music department which now has no proper quarters. The 
artist's vision of such a building is shown above. 



THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF SOUTHERN 

MISSIONARY COLLEGE APPRECIATES 

THE INTEREST YOU HAVE MANIFESTED

on Southern Missionary College by both natural growth and 
post-war circumstances can be quickly carried to completion

Christian service.
