ORGANIZATION. ^ If S HIS Institution was incorporated by special act of the I; General Assembly of the State of Tennessee, in the year 1867, under the name East Tennessee Wesleyan Uni- / J versity. The present name and amended charter were A adopted by the Board of Trustees, February 3, 1886, in response to a general desire that a living monument be j erected and dedicated to the memory of that greatest soldier * — and statesman of our age, General U. S. Grant. The especial fitness of such a tribute to our noblest citizen will be readily understood when it is generally known that, after the close of the Civil War, he was in the closest sympathy with all efforts to promote the educational interests of the South, and was, from its foundation, one of the fore- most and stanchest friends of this Institution. In 1867, when the first steps were taken in its organization, he said: "I want to help the class of people for whom this school is being established, for I believe a Christian education among the masses of the Central South is now a necessity." His material aid, together with that of other friends of general education, has enabled this Institution to take and hold high rank among the schools of the South during twenty years of continued usefulness. Over three thousand students have been educated in these halls; nearly two hundred men and women have completed regular collegiate courses and received the appropriate degrees ; sixty ministers of various Christian denominations, and over one thousand teachers 36 GRANT MEMORIAL UNIVERSITY. have been prepared for active life, and all have gone forth to* spread the genial influences of liberal education throughout every State in the South. Senator Wm. M. Evarts has then well said: "No monu- ment more noble, more permanent, or more secure in the reverence of this people could be chosen, on which to inscribe the name of General Grant, than this University." Grant Memorial University, America's intellectual tribute to the memory of her most honored citizen, stands, also, a monument to the oneness of our preserved Union, an evi- dence of the genuine sympathy which has grown up between the North-land and the South, and insures a rapid develop- ment of the great intellectual, agricultural and mineral re- sources of the Central South, until all sections alike shall be permeated with the grand vital impulses of the highest civil- ization, until there shall be no longer a North, a South, an East, or a West; but one heart and one mind— the heart and mind of the American people. Two years have passed since the name of Grant was adopted and the sphere of the University enlarged, and gen- eral favor and approbation have been evidenced on every side. Leading statesmen and learned men, citizens and patriots everywhere, have kindly and earnestly commended the enter- prise. Rapid progress is being made in securing permanent endowment, and a largely increased patronage attests the approval of the Central South. The location of the University is eminently favorable for a great and permanent work, being readily accessible from all parts of the country, and, in the midst of the Central South, which is now just recovered from the exhaustion of civil war,, and awakened to new life and prosperity. Athens, the seat of the University, is located in the mountain region of East Tennessee, one thousand feet above the sea-level and apart GENERAL INFORMATION. 37 from all miasma, whether of swamps or the overflow of great rivers. Mountain ranges stretch their undulating outlines along either horizon and thrust their outlying sentinels within a few miles of the village, while the cool breezes fromtheir summits both mitigate the heat of summer and refresh the lungs with resinous odors so grateful to the senses and so beneficial to the health. Athens, being situated on the main line of the East Ten- nessee, Virginia and Georgia Railroad, is readily reached from all points east and north by way of Knoxville, and from the west and south as well as the north by way of Chattanooga. INSTRUCTION. The reorganization of the University has enabled the Trustees to greatly strengthen the Faculty, and to offer courses of study equal to the high and well-balanced stand- ards adopted by the first-class schools of our country and demanded by the culture and practical tendencies of the age. Besides important revision of the courses in Liberal Arts, Philosophy and Science, a new Department has been estab- lished with full courses in Technical Science. These courses have been carefully prepared with special reference to laying a broad substantial foundation of technical and general knowledge, so necessary for the successful prosecution of all the agricultural, mechanical and scientific professions. They will be open this year to all students prepared to enter the Freshman Classes. The Professional Departments have been materially strengthened, and the Courses of Study carefully revised. Students will find them fully up to the highest standard of excellence. 38 GRANT MEMORIAL UNIVERSITY. Experienced and able professors will be permanently added to the Faculty as rapidly as the classes organized in the new departments require it. NATURAL SCIENCE, During the past year very large additions have been made to the facilities of this Department, and the classes have had the benefit of full and practical instruction in all branches of Physical Science and Natural History. Apparatus and ma- terial, costing over three thousand dollars, have been pro- cured, and conveniently arranged in substantial cases for protection and systematic study. Constant additions are being made, as the practical work of the Department de- mands. The Physical Laboratory is provided with ample apparatus for the illustrations of the laws of Motion, Heat, Sound, Light and Electricity; the latter important subject being especially well illustrated by electric lamps of various styles and sizes, electric motor, magnetic telephones, telegraph in- struments with lines, microphones, batteries, induction coils and instruments of measurement. The Chemical Laboratory is provided with ample material for the study of General Chemistry, and complete apparatus and re-agent tables for analytical research. For the study of Natural History a valuable collection of fossils, minerals, plants and animals is now being arranged for convenient study and reference. A fine microscope (Tolles) and other useful apparatus are used in this Depart- ment. APPLIED SCIENCE AND INDUSTRIAL ART. The instruction in this Department is based upon the theory that the highest success of the farmer, the engineer, the architect, or the mechanic, depends as much on his GENERAL INFORMATION. 39* general education as upon his technical knowledge and man- ual skill. Mental discipline is valuable in proportion as it enables any one to do his work better and more intelligently, and to more fully understand the relations existing between his business and other industries and professions. The Courses of Study are so arranged that the work of each student can be directed in whatever line his practical work may demand. This is especially true in Engineering, as the last two years of study may be devoted to Mechanics, Geology and Mining, Surveying and Civil Engineering, or Electrical Engineering, as may be preferred. The general aim is to make well-balanced, cultured profes- sional men, neither pedantic theorists nor intolerant "prac- tical men," but specialists, trained to meet the demands of our practical age and the requirements of an ever-growing and elevating industry. Students in all these courses will be expected to spend six to ten hours a week in active work on the farm or in the shop, that they may learn the use and care of tools and understand the practical details of every subject studied. THEOLOGY. Candidates for the Christian ministry will find every facility for pursuing their special studies in connection with the Literary and Scientific Departments. Hebrew and Greek Testament, and other special branches, may be substituted for equivalent studies in other departments when it will not interfere with the standard of general culture. Such substi- tutions must, in all cases, be approved by the Faculty. Instruction will be given by lecture and recitation, and, as time will permit, free discussion will be allowed. Collateral reading will be indicated from time to time, according to the proficiency and capacity of the student; but a full course of the prescribed reading and study must be accompanied with 40 GRANT MEMORIAL UNIVERSITY. a good Christian conduct and character in order to entitle the student to the degree S. T. B., Saenz Theologicce Baccalaureus. The candidate for this degree must likewise come properly recommended. The form authorized by the Methodist Episcopal Church is: We, the Members of the Quarterly Conference of ... . hereby express our judgment that is called of Gad to the work of the ministry, and we commend him to the care and instruction of Grant Memorial University. If this can not be obtained in time, a similar certificate from a pastor in good standing will be required. Applicants from other churches are required to bring the certificates usually given by the denominations to which they belong. Exercises in Public Speaking. — Ample opportunity is afforded for the exercise of all the classes in the weekly meetings of the Theological Society, in extemporaneous speaking, the de- livery of sermons, reading, etc. The members of the Junior Class will be permitted to hold public services in the various churches of the neighborhood, as opportunity may offer, under the direction of the Dean of Theology. Financial Aid. — Young men who are industrious, and who know how to economize, are often able to work their way, unaided, through the College and Theological Department. Should a persevering and deserving student, however, find it necessary to receive aid, such assistance will be given as far as practicable. A spirit of self-reliance is cultivated as the basis of a manly and successful career. The doors of the Department are always open to conse- crated young men who never quail in the presence of diffi- culties, and every effort consistent with the building up of a manly character will be made to aid them in securing a good education. Almost all churches have societies instituted for GENERAL INFORMATION. 41 this purpose, and each denomination will be expected to aid students in its communion needing help. MUSIC. The design of this Department is to furnish thorough instruction in the various branches of music. With this object in view, systematic study will be given to the fundamental principles of music; to the different forms and periods, and to the works of the masters. Students will be received at any time, and, after satisfactory examination, will be given due credit for the progress already made. Students can not pass from one grade to another until the work of the former has been completed in a satisfactory manner. The time necessary to complete the course can not be stated in advance ; but will depend upon the previous attain- ments of the students; upon their ability, and upon the amount of time devoted to the study. At least one year of study in the Department will be required before graduation. Normal Work. — To meet the increasing demand for well- qualified teachers, special attention will be given those desir- ing to teach. Classes will be organized for instruction in the best methods of teaching, and in these students may give lessons under the direction of the teacher. The Normal work is free to all receiving regular instruction in the Department. Among the advantages offered, none are of greater impor- tance for general culture than the studies in Musical Liter- ature, together with the recitals and concerts that will be given from time to time. Advanced students will also receive drill in ensemble playing. While no student will be allowed to take part in any public musical entertainment without the consent of the teacher, all 42 GRANT MEMORIAL UNIVERSITY. students are required to assist in such work when they can dc so with credit to themselves and the Department. FINE ART. Arrangements have been made by which students in the University may have the advantage of instruction in Drawing and Painting. For the present this Department will be under the supervision of a member of the Faculty who received his art education in one of the first art schools of Europe. The course includes Free Hand Drawing, Mechanical and Archi- tectural Designing, Sketching from Nature, and Figure and Landscape Painting in Oil, Water Color or Distemper. Instruction will also be given in the principles of pho- tography and its applications to mechanical, portrait, and landscape work. COMMERCIAL CLASSES Are organized for the accommodation of those who wish instruction in Book-keeping, Penmanship, Shorthand and Telegraphy. These useful branches may be pursued in connection with the regular class work, and thus add little to the expense of a liberal education. PREPARATORY CLASSES. The importance of thorough and systematic preparation for higher studies and extended courses, has determined the Trustees to arrange for concerted and harmonious action among the principal seminaries and academies that are tribu- tary to the University, by the adoption of a uniform course of study leading to the regular college and technical classes. Besides the department at Athens, the following schools are comprised in the association, and students from them will be received without examination, upon presentation of certificatea from their respective principals : GENERAL INFORMATION. 43. 1. Powell's Valley Seminary, Wells' Springs, Tenn. 2. Warren Collegiate Institute, Fullens, Tenn. 3. Roanoke Seminary, Roanoke, Va. 4. Leicester Seminary, Leicester, N. C. 5. Mt. Zion Seminary, Mt. Zion, Ga. 6. Oakland Seminary, Oakland, Tenn. 7. Holston Seminary, New Market, Tenn. 8. Madison Seminary, Quallatown, N. C. 9. Parrottsville Seminary, Parrottsville, Tenn. MORAL AND RELIGIOUS CULTURE. The University is preeminently a Christian school. A healthy moral and Christian atmosphere pervades the work in every department, though no subscription to particular church creeds, nor compliance with exclusive forms of wor- ship, is required. The Theological Department is now, as in the past, educating ministers of several denominations, and the various churches in the town always welcome students to their services. The young men and young women each maintain a Christian Association which holds regular weekly meetings. All students are required to attend religious exercises in the University Chapel on each school-day, and public worship in one of the churches Sabbath morning. The University is under the auspices of the Methodist Episcopal Church, and owes much of its usefulness to the loyal and intelligent support of the Holston, Blue Ridge, Alabama, Virginia, Georgia, and Central Tennessee Conferences. READING AND RHETORICAL EXERCISES Especial attention will be given to these important branches in all departments and during the entire year. Each member of the Senior Class is required to deliver one original address 44 GRANT MEMORIAL UNIVERSITY. in the University Chapel each term. Each Literary Society will be permitted to give one public entertainment during the year under the direction of some member of the Faculty. LITERARY SOCIETIES. There are four Literary Societies organized under the laws of the University; the Athenian, Philomathean, and Simp- sonian (theological) for gentlemen, and the Sapphonian, for ladies. All have separate halls for meeting, large active membership, and appropriate libraries. LECTURES. During the winter months, eminent lecturers are engaged to address the students on social and literary topics. As a mat- ter of general culture these courses have been of great interest and benefit to all classes of students. RECITATIONS AND EXAMINATIONS. Each student is required to have no less than fifteen nor more than twenty recitations per week, unless especially excused by the Faculty. A record is kept by each professor, showing the grade of each student's daily work, and this, together with the result of a thorough public examination at the end of the term, must show an average of 60 in a scale of 100 before the student can be passed in any study. New students must give satisfactory evidence as to their knowledge of the studies previously pursued by the classes they wish to enter, either upon examination or by certificate of the principal of the school from which they come. It is very important that students enter classes at the begin- ning of the term, and keep in mind that constant, prompt attendance is necessary for the attainment of high grades. Students shall not leave classes nor take up new studies except upon written approval of the proper officers. GENERAL INFORMATION. 45 Candidates for degrees will not be permitted to pursue studies in advance of their classes, nor will any one be allowed to take studies for which he is not duly prepared- Students in the University will not be permitted to take lessons from any one outside the Faculty, except by express permission asked and granted. Students, not candidates for degrees, may pursue studies in any department for which they are prepared. Certificates, showing the amount and grade of work done by them, will be given upon application to the Dean of the department. The University confers the following degrees: Bachelor of Arts (A.B.) upon all who complete the classical course of study. Bachelor of Philosophy (Ph.B.) upon all who complete the philosophical course. Bachelor of Science (B. S.) upon all who complete the scientific, agricultural, engineering, or industrial art course. Bachelor of Theology (S.T.B.) upon all who complete the theological course. Bachelor of Music (Mus.B.) upon all who complete the course in music. Also the Post Graduate Degrees, Master of Arts (A.M.),. Master of Philosophy (Ph.M), and Master of Science (M.S.), upon Bachelors of Arts, of Philosophy, and of Science, respectively, who after graduation have successfully pursued studies under the direction of the Faculty for one year, or have engaged for three years in literary or professional work. The degree, Doctor of Philosophy, will be conferred upon Masters of Science, Arts, or Philosophy who have success- fully pursued studies under the direction of the Faculty for two years. Information respecting methods of study, sub- jects and details of examinations, will be furnished upon, application to the President. 46 GRANT MEMORIAL UNIVERSITY. EXPENSES. The entire history of the University has been characterized by the efforts of its Trustees and Faculty to reduce the cost of a liberal education to such low figures that the poorest students need not be deterred on account of their financial condition. It is a source of great satisfaction that the efforts made in this direction have been so successful, and that stu- dents in the humblest circumstances are here able to obtain a liberal education and prepare themselves for any of the practical and learned professions they may desire to pursue. It is, without doubt, true that no other institution in the world, of like grade, can offer such advantages for higher education at so little cost. While a number of students board themselves and work to pay their way, there are no social or class distinctions that separate them from those who have more ample means. The University knows no aristocracy but character and merit, and the heroic efforts of poor students command universal respect and consideration from both students and faculty. From the following table of expenses the actual outlay in any department may be readily computed : Tuition in Regular College Classes, per term, . $8 00 Tuition in Preparatory Department, per term, . 5 00 Ministerial Students half above rates. Tuition in Agriculture, Engineering, or Industrial Art, per term, . . . . . . . 20 00 Tuition in Music, per term, . . . . . 10 00 French, German, or Spanish, out of Course, per term, 3 00 Painting or Drawing, out of Course, per term, . 10 00 Book keeping, per term, ..... 5 00 Penmanship, per term, . . . . . . 3 00 Incidental Fee, paid by all, per term, . . . 2 00 GENERAL INFORMATION. 47 Students in Chemistry pay extra, per term, . . $2 00 Students in Analytical Chemistry pay cost of material used, average per term, . . . . 3 00 Use of Piano or Organ, per month, . . 1 50 Board in Hatfield Hall (gentlemen), per month, . 7 00 Room in Hall with heavy furniture, per term, . . 1 50 Room for self-board, with furniture, per term, . 1 50 Students board themselves at a weekly expense of .75 to 1 00 Habits of economy and industry are encouraged in all, and every possible aid will be rendered worthy men and women in their efforts to keep their expenses low, and in surrounding them with home-like influences. Ministers of the gospel in the regular work, and their families, will be allowed tuition in regular College and Preparatory Classes at one-half the regular rates ; but the Incidental Fee must be paid in full by every one who enters the University. No deduction will be made except in cases of prolonged sickness or unavoidable absence during more than one-half the term, when one-half the tuition paid will be refunded. All fees must be paid in. advance, and no professor shall receive a student into his classes except upon presentation of a ticket showing that settlement has been made with the Reg- istrar of the Faculty. GOVERNMENT. The regulations of the University are few and simple, based upon the usages of Christian homes and refined society. They appeal to the student's honor and self-respect, insist upon regular habits, inculcate respect for law and order, and inspire a love for the gentler and unselfish qualities that characterize the true gentleman and the refined lady. A faithful observance of the hours set apart for study, and reg- ular and prompt attendance upon all classes, exercises, or 48 GRANT MEMORIAL UNIVERSITY. other duties involved by the student's connection with the University, will be firmly insisted upon. Students will be held responsible for damage done by them to any property of the University. The association of ladies and gentlemen must be strictly in accordance with the regulations of the Faculty. No meeting of students in the University buildings for the transaction of business, and no exercises whatever to which the public are admitted, whether by society or individual stu- dents, shall be held, except with the consent of the Faculty previously obtained. The regulations of the University are printed in detail, together with such other information as may be of interest and benefit to new students, and may be obtained from any officer of the Faculty. It is desired that all students examine them carefully before matriculating, as all who become members of the school must agree to conform to them, and any one who persists in their violation shall be dismissed without hesitation. EQUIVALENT AND ELECTIVE STUDIES. Students in Literature, Science and Philosophy will be permitted to substitute studies in other courses for some of those enumerated.

" I congratulate you, my countrymen, that under the name of the illustrious hero, General Grant, there has been founded in the mountains of Tennessee, away up among the clouds and in the pure air of heaven, in the midst of a loyal and patriotic population, an institution of learning which will be a blessing to all the people of the South, and, I trust, to all the people of the North. Every aid possible should be showered from North and South alike. — Senator John Sher- man, Ohio. " Knowing what such a college as this on the hills of East Tennessee means in that reclaimed section of our Union; knowing what it means for the Republic; knowing what it means for humanity; knowing what, in its influence, it means for the future of my country, I say, God bless it, and God put it into your hearts to help the Grant University of East Tennessee, and give it means to do its great and needed work in the education of the South, and thereby for the Re- public of which we are citizens." — Gov. John D. Long, Massachusetts. "I fully indorse the enterprise, and commend it to the- favorable consideration of a generous public. May it grow as the fame of the great man whose name it bears grew, until its character is known and its benefits felt by the whole American people." — Senator Joseph E. Brown, Georgia. "No monument more noble, more permanent, or more secure in the reverence of this people could be chosen on. which to inscribe the name of General Grant than this Uni- versity. This illustrious name shall be written in many go GRANT MEMORIAL UNIVERSITY. forms on marble and on brass, on arches and on mausoleums. But here this name shall be engraven on the flesh tablets of the hearts of all the scholars of this University, and will be written in characters of living light all over the conduct and the careers, the names and the fame, of all these edu- cated men who shall issue from Grant University, as the im- pulse and the energy of their lives." — Senator Wm. Evarts. "In all these years this University has done a grand work. Its beneficent influence has spread all over the South. It deserves the sympathy and help of all patriotic and philan- thropic people." — Bishop W. F. Mallalieu. "I take great pleasure in commending to the patriotic peo- ple of our country the effort now being made to amply endow the Grant University, located in Athens, Tenn. It is a cause worthy of the heartiest sympathy and the most liberal bene- factions." — Right Rev. Samuel Fallows. "Three reasons inspire me to aid what I can to endow this institution of learning. The honored name it bears, which appeals to all American patriots ; the important mission it is destined to accomplish in behalf of Christian education, and the class of citizens it is certain to benefit in the South, whose intellectual elevation will contribute largely to the per- manent union and prosperity of our country." — Dr. J. P. Newman. " The movement which has resulted in the establishment of Grant University I have observed from the first. It has been well and wisely conducted." — Hon. John Eaton, late Commissioner of Education. THE Athens Minim- & Manufacturing Co., ATHENS, TENNESSEE, Has choice residence and business property in Athens for sale at low prices.

No. 1529 Arch Street, Philadelphia, have been using tor the last nineteen years, is- a scientific adjustment of the elements of Oxygen and Nitrogen magnetized, and the compound is so condensed and made portable that it is sent all over the world. "COMPOUND OXYGEN" being taken into the system, the Brain, Spinal Marrow and the Nerve-Ganglia — "Nerve Centers" — are nourished and made more active. Thus the Fountain-head of all activity, both mental and physical, is restored to a state of integrity, and the nervous system, the organs and the muscles all act. more kindly and efficiently. When " Compound Oxygen " is inhaled, the heart has imparted to it increased vitality. That organ sends forth the blood with more force and less wear to itself; the vital currents leave on their circuit new deposits of vital force in every cell of tissue over which they pass, and return again to the lungs for a new supply. This is a rational explanation of the greatest advance medical science has yet made. Office Patients are under our personal inspection and care, visiting the office daily, or as frequently as their cases may require. The treatment is by inhalation. Dhs. Starkey & Palen have the liberty to refer to the following named well- known persons who have tried their Treatment: Hon. Wm. D. Kklley, Member of Congress, Philadelphia. Rev. Victor L.

UNSURPASSED IN ALL THE ESSENTIALS OF GOOD READERS— IN MECHANICAL EXECUTION, IN GRADATION, IN CHEAPNESS. The province of a Reading Book is to furnish proper material for teaching reading. It seems necessary to assert this, in view of the modern tendency to in- wrap, overlay, and generally confuse that part of a child's education known as " learning to read" with a multiplicity of irrelevant matters — kindred, perhaps, but not material, and which, like the modern "variations'' to an old-time melody, either divert the mind from the subject mainly under consideration or completely disguise its identity. The publishers of Butler's Series have presented in these new Readers all that has been deemed essential for teaching reading easily and properly. These essen- tials are given in the best style. Whatever differences of opinion there may be in regard to the first proposition, ther« can be no question as to the beauty and clear- ness of the typography, the artistic finish and appropriateness of the illustrations, and the thorough, careful gradation secured by the author's plan of arrangement. In the matter of gradation, the three main points taken into consideration were the sentiment of the lesson, the easiness or difficulty of the words used in its ex- pression, and the proper variety of pleasing and instructive material. Many selec- tions, not too advanced in sentiment, were either modified in language, or rejected as interfering with the distinct plan of « gradual increase of the vocabulary, which allowed only a limited number of new words to each lesson. These words, being diacritically marked, not only indicate the correct pronunciation, but also furnish valuable facilities for phonic analysis. Butler's Series. First Reader, Butler's Series.
