Detailed Statements 


Tjhe Several ^Departments of the Co/teye. 


The readei- of the outline of courses will notice that three under- 
graduate degrees are offered by the Literary Department of the 
college — B. A., B. S., Ph. B. Jt will also be seen from the follow- 
ing schedule that the preparation required for, the different courses 
is not the same. 

B. A. Degree — The Bachelor of Arts course offers special instruc- 
tion in the departments of Latin and Greek. This course pre- 
supposes one [year of preparatory work in Greek, two in Latin. 
In order to be allowed to enter upon the B. A. course the ap- 
plicant must stand an approved examination in English. Latin- 
Greek, and Mathematics. 

B. S. Degree — The Bachelor of Science course oft'ei^s special work 
in Chemistry, Physics, and Mathematics. Instead of Latin and 
Greek, French and German are studied. In order to be allowed 
to enter upon the B. S. course, the applicant must stand an ap- 
pi'oved examination in English and Mathematics. 

Ph. B. Degree — The Bachelor of Philosophy course offei^s special 
work in Histoi'y, Psychology, and English. The courses in 
French and German are required. In order to be allowed to 
enter upon the Ph. B. course, the applicant must stand an ap- 
proved examination in English, Mathematics, History, and Geog- 

LL. B. Degree — No entrance examination is exacted of law stu- 
dents who apply for the Junior class. They are expected to 
have a good elementary English education. Applicants for the 
Senior class are examined in the Junior course. 


Each school of colleffiate instruction offers work looking toward 
the Master's Degree. Applicants for the M. A., M. S., or Ph. M. 
degree will be required to elect thi'ee coui'ses of study, not more 


than two of which may be in the same school or under the same pro- 
fessor. The principal subject chosen — known as the major course — 
will be expected to employ one-half of the applicant's time ; each of 
the minor courses, one-quarter of his time. It is expected that the 
-applicant for a master's degree, after receiving a bachelor's degree, 
spend at least one year at Millsaps College engaged in graduate 
study. In most cases non-resident study during two or more years 
will be accepted as the equivalent of one year's resident work. All 
examinations must be stood in .Jackson. Attention is directed to the 
schedule of degrees following and to the statement in connection 
with the account of work done in each department. The courses so 
announced are major courses ; a minor course is expected to require 
for its completion half the time required for the completion of a 
major course. 

M. A. Degree — To take the Master of Arts Degree the student 
must choose for his major course, Latin, Greek, Philosophy, or 
English. His minor courses must be in schools in which he has 
already finished the full course for the bachelor's degree. 

JVI. S. Degree — To take the Master of Science Degree, the student 
must choose his major and one minor course from the Schools of 
Chemistry, Physics, Geology, and Mathematics. His second mi- 
nor must be in a school in which he has already finished the full 
course for the bachelor's degree. 

Ph. M. Degree— To take the Master of Philosophy Degree, the 
student must choose his major course from the Schools of Psy- 
chology, History, French, German, and English. His minor 
courses must be in schools in which he has already finished the 
full course for the bachelor's degree. 

Entrance £xaminations. 

The authorities of Millsaps College prefer that applicants for ad- 
Tnission into the College should submit themselves to the regular test 
of an entrance examination. But in case Principals of Preparatory 
Schools desire to have their pupils admitted on trial without exami- 
nation, arrangements looking to that end may be made as result of 
correspondence with the College authorities. 

Special attention is called to the following statement of require. 
ments for admission into the several departments. 

L English— The candidate for admission into the Freshman 
Class will be examined on the equivalent of the work done during 
the second year of the Preparatory Department. He is expected 
to be thoroughly familliar with grammatical forms and must be ac- 
quainted with the elementary facts of practical rhetoric. He will 


be required to write a short composition — correct ir spelling, jiunc- 
tuation and grammar — on subject chosen from the books assigned to 
be read for that purpose. 

The following books are well suited for use in preparing students 
for admission into the Ereshman Class : Grammar : Whitney and 
Lockwood's English Grammar or Longmans' School Grammar. 
Composition and Rhetoric : Genung's Outlines of Rhetoric, or But- 
ler's School English. 

It is desirable that the preparatory schools make use of the lists 
of books for reading and study looking toward the uniform entrance 
requirements in English, adopted by the principal American col- 
leges. This year we shall examine on any two books from the 1898 
list. In 1899 we shall examine on four books. Thereafter we shall 
require preparation on all the books announced. 

1898. For Reading— Milton's Paradise Lost— Books I. and II. : 
Pope's Homer's Iliad, Books I., VI., XXII., and XXIV. : The 
Sir Roger De Coverley Papers from the Spectator : Goldsmith's 
Vicar of Wakefield : Carlyle's Essay on Burns : Coleridge's 
Rime of the Ancient Mariner ; Southey's Life of Nelson. 

For Study — Shakspere's Macbeth. Burke's Speech on Concilation 
with America : DeQuincy's Flight of a Tartar Tribe. 

1899. For Reading— Cooper's The Last of the Mohicans : Dry- 
den's Palamon and Arcite : The Sir Roger De Coverly Papers : 
Goldsmith's The Vicar of Wakefield : Coleridge's the Rime of 
the Ancient Mariner : DeQuincey's Flight of a Tartar Tribe : 
Pope's Homer's Iliad. Books, I., VI.. XXII and XXIV : Low- 
ell's Vision of Sir Launfal : Hawthorne's House of Seven Ga- 

For Study — Shakspere's Macbeth : Milton's Paradise Lost. Books 
I. and II.; Burke's Speech en Conciliation with America: Car- 
lisle's Essay on Burns. 

1900. For Reading — Dryden's Palamon and Arcite : Pope's Iliad, 
Books I., VI., XXII. and XXIV.: The Sir Roger De Covei-ley 
Papers from the Spectator : Goldsmith's The Vicar of Wake- 
field : Scott's Ivanhoe : De-Quincey's Flight of a Tartar Tribe : 
Cooper's Last of the Mohicans : Tennyson's Princess : Lowell's 
Vision of Launfal. 

For Study— Shakspere's Macbeth : Milton's Paradise Lost. Books 
I. and II.: Burke's Speech on Conciliation with America: Mac- 
aulay's Essays on Milton and Addison. 
All the books on these lists appear in the form of carefully anno- 
tated editions in the Longmans's English Classics (Longmans, Green 
&Co., New York), in the Student's Series of English Classics (Leach, 


Shewell and Co., Boston), and in the Standard English Classics 
(Ginn & Co., Boston). 

II. Latin and Greek— Applicants for admission into the Fresh- 
man Class are, examined on the work of the Preparatory Depart- 
ment. This, as may be seen, comprises, in Latin, the reading- of 
four books of Caesar's Gallic War, or an equivalent ; in Greek, the 
satisfactory completion of The First Greek Book ; and in both lan- 
guages a careful study of the forms and of the leading principles of 
the syntax, xipplicants are expected, also, to have some facility in 
translating simple Latin and Greek at sight and in winting easy 
English sentences in Latin and Greek prose. 

To be more specific, a course of study is outlined below for the 
guidance of the teachers of preparatory Latin and Greek through- 
out the State. 


Latin — The First Latin Book f Collar and Daniell): Gradatim 
(Collar): Grammar (Bennett).

Gallic War (Kelsey, 8th edition): New Latin Composition 
(Daniell): History (Creighton"s Primer). 
Greek— The First Greek Book (White); Anabasis (Goodwin and 
White): Grammar (Goodwin): History (Fytt'e's Primer.) 

To do satisfactorily the work here indicated, it will require five 
recitations a week of one hour each for two years in Latin : for one 
year in Greek. 

It is thought advisable to set before the students continuous pas- 
sages for translation as soon as practicable, and for this purpose selec- 
tions from Collar's Gradatim and something of the Anabasis may 
be read toward the end of the first year. 

It is recommended also, as a prerequisite to the best results, that 
throughout the first year, in both Latin and Greek, wi-itten exercises 
be made an essential part of each day's work. During the second 
year of the Latin course two exercises a week will be sufficient. 

Certainly as much history as is indicated above may be asked of 
the preparatory schools, but it is hoped that they will make a place 
also for works of a more discursive character, in which the stories 
of Greece and Rome will find more attractive, not to say romantic, 

III. Mathematics. New students applying for admission to the 
Freshman Class in Mathematics, unless they come from correlated 
schools (see first paragraph on Entrance Examinations), will be ex- 
amined on Arithmetic, Algebra to quadratic equations, and one 


book of Geometry. Arithmetic. Teachers who are preparing- stu- 
dents for college are advised to give them a good course in Arith- 
metic, on account of both the practical and educational value of the 
subject. Algebra. It will, in most cases, be unwise for students, who 
have spent nine or ten months in the diligent study of Algebra 
under a competent teacher, to apply for Freshman work in Mathe- 
matics. Geometry. In learning Geometry, much depends upon a 
good start. A course in concrete Geometry, under a judicious 
teacher, will, it is believed, admirably prepare the way for clear 
ideas on the subject. 

The standards for entrance examinations are Wentworth's Gram" 
mar School Arithmetic, Wentworth's School Algebi'a, and Went- 
worth's New Plane Geometry. 

IV. History and Geography. An approved examination in 
Physical and Political Geography, and in American History, is 
required for entrance into Freshman History. Harper's School 
Geography and Montgomery's Leading Facts of American History 
ai'e recommended as covei'ing the ground of the examination. 


Departtnents of Unstruction* 

The departments comprising the Course of Instruction are : 

I. The School of Philosophy and Biblical Instruction. 

II. The School of the English Language and Literature. 

III. The School of Latin and Greek. 

IV. The School of Chemistry, Mineralogy, and Physics. 
V. The School of Mathematics. 

VI. The School of Modern Languages. 
VII. The School of History and Economics. 

i. the school of philosophy and biblical instruction. 

President Murrah. 

Philosophy of the mental economy and the great subject of 
morals, as they affect the heart and influence the life, will be 
taught with great care and fidelity.. 

This school embraces two departments : 

I. Mental Philosophy, Logic, and the History of Philosophy. 
II. Ethics, Political Economy, Christian Evidences. 

Throughout this School of Philosophy text-books and books of 
reference of the most approved character will be used, and the 
method of instruction will be by lectures, by daily oral examina- 
tionss by analysis of subjects studied, and by original theses to be 
presented by the students on topics prescribed relating to the va- 
rious depart7nents of the school. 

The English Bible and Steele's Outlines of Bible Study will be 
used as text-books in connection with the Department of Biblical 


Applicants for the degree of M. A. or M. S. will be required, in 
this department, to devote at least one year to the study of Hamil- 
ton's Metaphysics, the History of Philosophy and the Evidences of 

Text-Books : Hamilton's Lectures, History of Philosophy 
(Schwegler), Divine Origin of Christianity (Storrs). 


ii. the school of the english language and literature. 
Professor Weber. 

During- the Freshman year the leading i^rinciples of practical 
rhetoric are reviewed. The student is drilled in careful expression 
by means of exercises in composition, study of work-history and 
training in the analysis of synonyms. The fall session will be 
given to the study of rhetoric and of etymology. It is believed 
wise to consider the foreign element of the English vocabulary 
before undertaking the study of the native element, inasmuch as 
the student is supposed to have had two years' drill in Greek and 
Latin before entering the Freshman class. Syle's From Milton to 
Tennyson is used in the belief that it is wiser to know a few poems 
well than to have command of facts and dates concerning a wider 
range of English literature. Eight works of English authors 
constitute the parallel reading. 

During the spring term of the Sophomore Year the class begins 
the study of the historical development of the English language, 
from Alfred to Chaucer. Cook's First Book in Old English is used- 
Special attention is paid to the native element in the English vocab- 
ulary. Emei'son's History of the English Language serves as a 
commentary on the language of the selections as arranged in the 
Chronological order. Pancoasfs American Literature is used and 
for parallel reading ©ight works of American authoi-s are read. 

In the Junior year attempt is made to study some rhetorical form 
in a practical way. Some special study of argumentation will be 
undertaken. Several famous arguments will be analyzed and briefs 
will be prepared. During the spring term four plays of Shakspere 
will be read ; the parallel reading is eight plays of the Pre-Shakspe- 
rian period. 

The Senior class will enter upon a study of the early history of 
Literary Criticism. The class will begin with a careful study of 
Aristotle's Poetics and Hoi^ace's Ars Poetica. Attention will then 
be turned to Sidney's Defense of Poetry, Ben Jonson"s Timber. Dry- 
den's Essay on Dramatic Poetry. French criticism will be repre- 
sented by Boileau's L'Art Poetique ; German criticism, by Lessing's 

The spring term will be given up to a careful study of modern 
English poetry as a vehicle of the poefs philosophy of life. Tenny- 
son, Wordsworth and Browning, will be read in copious selections. 

The special course required of applicants for the degree of Ph. B. 
will be given up to the study of Nineteenth Century literature. 
During the fall term attention will be turned to English literatre. 
In the spring term American literature will demand attention; La- 
nier's Poems and Poe's Tales and Poems will be carefullv studied. 



wishes to make a special study of literature, is required to do a 
small amount of language work About 750 lines of Old English 
poetry — Maldon and Brunanburg (Ci'ow) and Judith (Cook) will be 
read, special attention being given to the verse, in the light of Sie* 
vers's epoch — making investigations into the form of Germanic vez'se. 
Selected chapters from Brooke's History of Early English Litera- 
ture and ten Brink's Early English Literature will cover the ear- 
lier periods of our literature. The work in literary investigation 
will be in the study of the forms of literature. Six essays of 2000 
words ^ach will be required. In these essays the treatment of the 
subject is to be historical as well as critical. Definite analyses of 
each great literary impulse must be made, and illustrations sub- 
stantiating the analysis must be cited from the books assigned to be 

THE EPIC— The Iliad, Beowulf, The Nibelungen Lied, The Divine 

Comedy, Paradise Lost, Old Englih Ballads (Gummere). 
THE LYRIC — Palgrave's Golden Treasury of Lyrical Poems, Parts 

I and II : Book of Elizabethan Lyrics (Schelling). 
THE NOVEL — George Eliot's Silas Marner ; Meredith's The Egoist : 
Howell's Rise of Silas Lapham : Austen's Sense and Sensi- 
bility ; Henry James's An International Episode. 
THE ROMANCE — Hawthorne's House of Seven Gables ; Stevenson's 
Treasure Island ; Scott's Ivanhoe : Doyle's Micah Clarke : Craw- 
ford's Roman Singer ; Page's Marse Chan. etc. 
THE DRAMA — Manley's Specimens of Pre-Shaksperian Drama — 
three volumes ; Marlowe's Faustus, and Edward II ; Greene's 
Friar Bacon and Friar Bungay. 
THE ESSAY — Montaigne's Essays ; Ben Jonson's Timber ; the Es- 
says of Cowley, Bacon, and Lamb. 
dertaking this work, it is required that the student complete the 
course in Gothic offered by the Modern Language Department. 
Several Old English poems will be read : Christ (Cook) : Elene 
(Kent), and Andreas (Baskervill). A serious study of Beowulf and 
the Beowulf-question will be undertaken. It is hoped that McClum- 
pha's translation of Wuelcker's Grundriss Zur Geschichte der 
Angelsaechsischen Litteratur will be ready in time for use in this 
work. Professor Weber's private Beowulf-collections will be at the 
service Of the student. The Sievers-Cook Old English Grammar 
will be in constant use. Selections from Alfred's Orosius and 
Alfric's Homilies will be read. Cook's pamphlet on the Phonological 
Investigation of Old English being used as guide in linguistic study. 


The three volumes of ten Brink's Early English Literature will 
serve as basis for the work in the history of literature, the section 
of work on the Epic, together with the essay of 2000 words, required 
of the students of the literary course is also assigned to the students 
of the language course. 

iii. the school of latin and greek. 

Professor Swearingen. 

In the outline of the course leading to the degree of Bachelor of 
Arts the texts and editions used in this department are enumei^ated. 
For the guidance of students and dealers the titles are there given 
in full, but it is not to be understood that in every case the entire 
ground indicated will be covered in class. 

The work of the Freshman Class is limited in extent and is meant 
to be correspondingly thorough. The end in view is to furnish the 
student with an accurate foundation for classical scholarship. The 
entire session is therefore devoted to the study of Cicero and Xeno- 
phon. The forms are carefully reviewed, the systematic study of 
the syntax is begun, and the importance of acquiring a vocabulary 
is at all times emphasized. Throughout the year daily practice in 
infllecting and construing is kept up, and'the principles of syntax met 
with in the texts are practically applied to the writing of weekly 
exercises in pi-ose composition. 

The main object of the course outlined for the Sophomore Class 
is to read the texts selected with some appreciation of their value as 
works of art. To this end the class is first put in possession of the 
literary and historical setting of each selection by a required course 
of parallel reading, supplemented by informal lectures. The at- 
tempt is then made to teach the student to understand, without 
translating, the less involved passages of the authors read and to 
use in translating, a pure English idiom. This ability to grasp the 
thought in the order of the original is the necessary condition of an 
adequate appreciation of the classics as literature. Reading at 
sight, thei'efore, forms a not unimportant part of the work of the 
class room, while portions of the texts are, from time to time, re- 
quired to be turned, in writing, into the best English which the 
class can command. 

The Junior Class is assumed to have reached a somewhat ad- 
vanced stage in the study of the classics. Matters of grammatical 
detail are therefore subordinated, in the work of this year, to 
studies of an historical and literary kind. Homer and Vergil have 
been purposely deferred until this time, when the class shall, pre- 
sumably, at least, have attained such facility in translating that the 


readings may be rapid and extensive and the interpretation intelli- 
gent and appreciative. Incidentally a study, iu outline, will be 
made of the Homeric Question, of the Iliad and Aeneid as types o^ 
the epic, and the history in general of this form of poetry. The 
satires of Horace are made the basis of a running commentary on 
some of the most significant customs and institucions of the time- 
In the reading of his Epistles a critical and historical examination 
of his views on literature is undertaken, and due attention is paid 
to his philosophic reflections as an expression of the maturer 
thoughts and higher aspirations of the enlighted pagan. In the 
study of the Attic tragedy the history of the Greek drama and of 
dramatic contests at Athens is taken up, and the results of recent 
excavations on the sites of ancient theatres are laid under contribu- 
tion to supply the setting and technical information necessary to a 
clear conception of a Greek play on the stage, and so to an intelli- 
gent estimate of its dramatic as well as its literary worth. 


Two courses are ottered leading to the degree of Master of Arts. 
The one is a literary course, designed to continue the work of the 
Junior year, and has to do chiefly with the origin and development 
of the Greek drama and of Roman satire as forms of literature. 
The other is more technical in character, and deals almost exclu- 
sively with the subject of epigraphy. In both courses a minimum 
of history and philology is required. 

The scope of each course is indicated by the schedule which fol- 
lows, of the texts to be read and of the works of reference to be used 
in connection therewith : 

I. In Either Course : 
Remnants of Early Latin (Allen). 

Grammaire Compareedu Grec et du Latin (Henry), 5th edition, 

or the translation of the 2nd edition. 
History of Greece (Abbott). 
History of Rome (Shuckburgh). 

II. In the Course in Literature : 

A. Latin. 

Roman Satire (Lucilius, Horace, Persius and Juvenal.) 
The Roman Satura (Nettleship.) 
Roman Literature (Cruttwell). 
Latin Poetry (Tyrrell). 

B. Greek. 

Aeschylus, the Oresteia. 

Sophocles, the Oedipus Plays. 

Euripides, the Alcestis, the Hippolytus, the Medea- 


Aristophanes, the Frogs. 

Das Griechische Theater (Doerpfeld und Reisch). 
Greek Literature (Jevons). 
Greek Poetry (Jebb) . 
III. In the Course in Epigraphy : 

A. Latin. 

An introduction to the Study of Latin Inscriptions (Egbert.) 
Cours d'Epigrapbie Latine (Cagnat.t 
Historical Latin Inscriptions (Rushforth). 
Exempla Inscriptionum Latinarum (Wilmanns) . 

B. Grecl: 

An Introduction to Greek Epigraphy (Robertson). 

Grammatik der attischen Inschriften Meisterhans). 

Greek Historical Inscriptions (Hicks). 

The Dialects of Greece (Smyth). 

Delectus Inscriptionum Graecarum (Cauer). 

Of the works here enumerated several are required only in part. 
The candidate is expected, for example, to have a general acquaint- 
ance with Doerpfeld's new theory of the Greek theatre' and of the 
evidence which led to his conclusions, but not necessarily to make a 
minute study of the-book. The collections of the. inscriptions, too, 
by Wilmanns, Hicks and Cauer, are not to be read entire, but to be 
consulted from time to time for further illustration of matters in- 
adequately presented in the introductions of Egbert and Robertson. 

The courses outlined above, in which Latin and Greek are offered 
conjointly, are major courses, but they can be so re-combined or 
modified as to form either a major or minor course in either sub- 

iv. school of chemistry, experimental physics, and inor- 
ganic geology. 

Professor Muckenfuss. 

The rooms given up to the study of these subjects are modern both 
in size and convenience, and occupy the whole lower floor of Web- 
ster Science Hall. The recitation room opens into a dark room 
for photography and optical experiments and into a room specially 
isolated and designed to retain delicate -physical apparatus. It is 
connected by forty feet of folding doors with the general laboratory 
by which arrangement a large auditorium forty by sixty feet, is ob- 
tainable for public scientific entertainments. The general labora- 
tory opens conveniently into a small fuming room outside of the 
building so that vapors may not pass from one to the other, and is 
also connected with the store-room, over which an assistant pre- 
sides during laboratory hours. Gas, water, experiment tables, hoods 


and pneumatic troughs are to be found in convenient places. The 
two front rooms are designed for a musevim and for 'analysis, while 
the basement is intended for assaying and other industrial work. 

In the undergraduate work of this dejjartment, elementary instruc- 
tion is given in experimental physics and inorganic geology and a 
full course is provided in inorganic, organic and analytic chemis- 
try, over half of which consists of individual student experimenta- 
tion. The policy of employing three assistants enables the depart- 
ment to give full efficiency to its equipment. 

Chemistry— This subject is taught by recitation and by work 
which each student must perform in the laboratory. Recitations will 
be fully illustrated by experiments under the charge of an assistant. 
It is aimed that the laboratory be kept well equipped with appa- 
ratus necessary to the correct appreciation of the science. Each 
student has his own desk and apparatus and is closely supervised, so 
that he may not only gain a true idea of the substances under in- 
spection, but also cultivate a hand careful to the smallest detail^ 
an eye observant of the slightest phenomenon, and habits of neat- 
ness, skill, and economy. 

The Sophmore course consists per week of four hours recitation, 
and two afternoons in the labratory experimenting with substances 
considered in the recitation. Library copies of Watt's Revised Dic- 
tionary, Thorpe's Applied Chemistry, and Roscoe and Schorlem- 
mer's Treatise are on hand for reference. In the latter part of the 
year's labratory work, special attention will be paid to inorganic 
preparations. Each student will make by approved industrial 
methods many typical salts and preserve them as specimens. 

The Junior course occupies three hours a week in the recitation 
room and two afternoons a week in the labratory upon the study of 
organic compounds. Many substances, especially those of physi- 
ological or medicinal importance, are prepared and studied. The 
class spend in addition one afternoon in qualitative analysis, as a 
continuation to their work of the previous year. 

The Seniors spend two afternoons weekly throughout the year 
upon the quantitative analysis of drinking water, fertilizers, soils, 
and ores. A special room is fitted up for this course. 

Finally, it should be said that in the laboratoz'y, text-books will 
be dispensed with as far as possible. The student is referred fve- 
quently to the Fresenius systems and to the works elsewhere men- 
tioned, but he will be taught to feel that the substances and apparatus 
around him are his alphabet. The teacher will be constantly on 
hand to guide and encourage, and will endeavor to inspii'e.a love for 
things, the basis of books. 

Experimental, Physics— Three hours a week are devoted by the 
Junior class to this study, the recitations being copiously illustrated 


by experiments under the charge of an assistant. A general view of 
physics is gotten by the end of the third quarter, after which some 
special topics, as heat and electricity, or light and sound, are taken 
up in a more advanced way. 

The Senior course includes those topics that bear on both physics 
and chemistry, and is given in -form of lectures upon the history of 
physics and chemistry, theoretical physics and chemistry, and phj-s 
ical chemistry. All these subjects are not, of course, presented 
during the three quarters of a year that are included. 

Inorganic Geology — This subject occupies two hours a week 
during the Senior year, and includes the study of crystallography, 
physical and descriptive mineralogy, structural and dynamical geol- 
ogy. During the consideration of the last division, the class meets 
one afternoon every other week for field work within a radius of 
ten miles of Jackson. Descriptive mineralogv is taught by lectures 
and is well illustrated by crystal models and by a museum of 300 
specimens collected from various parts of the world. 


Graduate work is offered in this department in chemistry, exper- 
imental physics, or inorganic geology. For eith-er course, in addi- 
tion a line of reading, 540 hours of laboratory work are required, 
being half of the college time for one year. ^ ■ 

v. the school of mathematics and astronomy. 

Professor Moore. 

The genei'al aim is to have the work of the department brought 
within such limits, and made so systematic and thorough as to se- 
cure to the student a mastery of leading principles and methods, for 
it is believed that only in this way, whether the end had in view is 
a practical application of the knowledge acquired, or mental discip- 
line and development, can the best results be obtained. 

While, in all tne classes, the text-book will furnish the basis for 
instruction, still the explanations and demonstrations of the Professor 
on leading and crucial points of the science must be regarded as an 
essential part of the course. 

The Freshman class studies Algebra and Geometry. In Algebra 
the aim will be to secure to the student, besides skill and accuracy 
in the performance of algebraic operations, an increased power of 
abstract analysis and reasoning. In Geometry the student will be 
aided in forming correct geometrical conceptions and in gaining an 
insight into the true spirit and methods of geometrical reasoning. 
Weekly original exercises will be required. 

In the Soptimore Year Plane and Spherical Trigonometry and 


Surveying- are studied and completed, and Analytic Geometry is 
begun. Trigonometry receives the attention which its importance 
demands, and the course in surveying embraces recitations, field 
work with the tape, chain, compass and transit, and private work. 
During the second term, plane Analytic Geometry through the 
ellipse is studied, Nichols' Analytic Geometry, chapter 1—7. 

The Junior class completes Analytic Geometry and studies the 
Diffei^ential and IntegaL Calculus. The elegant methods of mathe- 
matical investigation claiming the student's attention during this 
year are shown to combine logical rigor with great efficiency, brev- 
ity and comprehensiveness. The aim is to secure to the student 
some degree of appreciation of these methods, and of skill in their 

The Junior B. A. class (3 hours per week) studies, during the first 
term, the ellipse, the hyperbola, loci of the second order, and higher 
plane curves. Nichols' chapters 8, 9, 10. Also, the introductory 
principles of the Calculus and the differentiation of functions. Tay- 
lor's Calculus, chapters 1 and 2. During the second term, this class 
studies the simple operations of integration with application to geom- 
etry and mechanics: successive differentiation; the demonstration of 
the incomplete forms of Taylor's aud McLaurin's formulas and their 
applications to the development of functions into series; maxima and 
minima of the functions of a single variable : tangents, normals 
and assumptotes ; integration of rational fractions ; integration by 
relationalization ; integration by parts ; lengths and areas of plane 
curves ; areas of surfaces of revolution, and volumes of solids of rev- 
olution. Taylor's Calculus, chapters 3, 4, 7, 10, 13, 14, 15, 16. 

The Junior B. S. Class, in addition to the above course, studies 
in two extra hours per week, the following course : First term, 
Solid Analytic Geometry, Nichols', Part II, entire. Second term, 
successive integration with applications to mechanics ; indetermi- 
nate forms ; the completion of Taylor's and Maclaurin's formulas 
with applications : functions of two or more variables with change 
of the independent variable ; direction of curvature ; singular points 
and curve tracing ; curvature, envelopes, and order of contact ; in- 
tegration by parts and by series ; the method of infinitesimals and 
integration as a summation with applications. Taylor, Chapters 5, 
6, 7, 9, 11, 12, 15 and 17. 

The Senior Class studies General Astronomy through the entire 
year. It is meant to supply that amount of information upon the 
subject which may be fairly expected of every "liberally educated" 
person. The course will give a clear and accurate presentation of 
leading astronomical facts, principles and methods. The members 
of the Senior Class who are candidates for the degree of Bachelor of 
Science study also during the first term, the Elements of Mechanics, 


in which an acquaintance with the Calculus will be presumed, and 
during the second term, Determinants and the The Theory of Equa- 
tions. A full comprehension of the studies of this year will enable 
the student to enter upon enlarged investigations of the laws of 
force and motion as exhibited both in terrestial and celestial phe- 
nomena, and to pursue successfully more advanced studies in the 
modern mathematics. 


The following courses are offered, in this dejoartment. to appli- 
cants for the Master's Degree : 

I. For the M. A. and Ph. M. Degrees — 1. Acoustics and Optics, 
(Bartlett); 2. Spherical and Practical Astronomy (Chauvenet, Vol. 
I.); 3. Theory of Instruments (Chauvenet, Vol. II.): 4. History of 

II. For the M. S. Degree — 1. Differential Equations (Murray): 2. 
Analytical Mechanics ; 3. Mechanical Astronomy ; 4. History of As- 

vi. the school of history. 
Professor Hanner. 

The advantages to be derived from the study of history are two. 
fold : Those which make for mental discipline and those which con- 
tribute to our stock of necessary information. Its disciplinary value 
is manifested in an increased power to think, in the habit acquired 
of thinking by orderly and correct methods, and in the gaining of a 
knowledge of one's own powers of accomplishment. Those powers 
of the niind which the study of history especially develops are mem- 
ory, judgment, and the power of expression. Dates, those bugbears 
of many students, while they lose most of their terrors when a rela- 
tion of cause and effect has been established between the events for 
which they stand, serve to inculcate that accuracy and definiteness 
of recollection so much to be desired. 

The problems of history are the problems of every day life, and 
as such they can not be solved by any set rules or formiil*, but tlie 
judgment must be exercised in a greater degree than in any other 

Another significant advantage of this study is that it may give 
valuable training of the powers of expression, both oral and written, 
n the practice of narration and in the supplying of topics for both 
brief and long composition work. In law and journalism the infor- 
mation that it supplies is indispensable, and foi- every citizen it is 
needed for the comprehension of literature, for the understanding 


of political institutions and for the basis of a well-founded, intelli- 
gent love of country. 

The course offered extends through three years ; the first year is 
devoted to the study of the Eastern and the European peoples : the 
second year to England and the United States ; the third yeai- to 
the constitutional history of the United States. 

The first quarter of the Freshman year will be given to the study 
of the Eastern nations and Greece, especial attention being paid to 
the latter. The student will be assigned parallel reading in Grote, 
Cox, Sankey, and Curtius, which are to be found in the College Li- 

Roman History will be studied during the second quarter. Gib- 
bon, Capes. Merivale, Beesley, Smith, and Mommsen will afford 
parallel reading. 

The third and fourth quarters will be devoted to the study of Me- 
dieval and Modern (European) History. 

The History of England will be studied during the first term of 
the Sophomore year. Macaulay, Hume, Green, Lecky, Gardiner, 
Stubbs, and Morris will be used as parallel reading. The second 
term of the Sophomore ahd the whole of the J unior year are given 
to the study of our own country and people. The Sophomore class 
will study the period between 17(35 and LStio : and the Junior class 
the institutions and constitution of the United States, using an 
abridged edition of Bryce's Commonwealth as text. The class room 
work during the second term of the Sophomore and during the Ju- 
nior year will be supplemented with readings from Schouler. Ban. 
croft, McMaster, Adams, Fisher, Hart. 


A course in histoi'y, whose aim is to develop the power of investi- 
gation and criticism, is ottered. The student will be required to 
prepare original papers on topics relating to Amei-ican History. 
These papers will be read and discussed at such times as the Pro- 
fessor in charge may designate. 

In addition to these essays, oral reports on assigned portions of 
such writers as Schouler, Cui'tis, Bancroft, Bryce, Lecky, Hil- 
dreth, will be heard and discussed at regular meetings. 



Professor Hanner. 

A course extending through two years is ottered in each of these 
languages. The aim of the course is to give the student a thorough 


mastery of the fundamental principles of the two languages, a cor- 
rect pronunciation of French and of German, and a fair acquaint- 
ance with the literature of both nations. 

The first term of the Freshman year is devoted to the study of 
Grammar, to the translating of simple English sentences and idioms 
into the corresponding French and German, and to daily practice 
in pronunciation. 

During the second term of the Freshman year the class will read 
easy prose, especial attention being given to form work, to an idio- 
matic translation, and to the application of the rules learned during 
the first term. The exercises in pronunciation, and the translation 
of English into French and German, are continued throughout the 

The importance of acquiring a full and accurate vocabulary is 
constantly impressed upon the student. 

In the Sophomore year the minor details of Grammar are subor- 
dinated, and the languages are studied from a literary standpoint. 
During the first term of this year the class in French will study 
snch representative prose writers as Victor Hugo, Balzac, Daudet. 
Merimee and Halevy. 

The class in German will read during the same time a production 
of Schiller and one of Storm. During the second term, the class in 
French will make a critical study of some of the masterpieces of 
the dramatic artists of the seventeenth century. 

The class in German will devote the second term to Heine and 
Goethe, and will also make a study of some of the most celebrated 
of the shorter poems of the language. 

Throughout the session weekly exercises in translating English 
into French and German are required. Class-room work is supple- 
mented with parallel reading, on which reports are had from time 
to time. 


Two courses will be offered to applicants for the Master's Degree. 

I. A course in Gothic and Middle High German. The texts used 
will be : Gothic Grammar (Bi^aune); Gotische Etymologic (Feist): 
Mittelhochdeutsche Grammatik (Paul): Armer Heinrich (Robert- 
son) ; Nibelungenlied (Piper) ; History of German Literature 

II. A course in Old French. The Chanson de Roland will be 
studied from a literary and a comparative standpoint. The relation 
between modern and old French will be traced. Brachet's Histor- 
ical Grammar and G. Paris's La Litterature Francaise au Moyen 
Age will also be studied.

Edward Mayes, LL. D., Dean. 

Assisted bv selected and able occasional Lecturers. 

In the original foundation of Millsaps College it was designed by 
its promoters to establish, in due season and when the success of the 
Literary Department should be assured, a Department of Profes- 
sional Education, embodying a Law and a Theological School. 

In the year 1896 the time came vhen. in the judgment of the 
Trustees, it was possible and proper to establish the Law Depart- 
ment. Accordingly they directed that, at the beginning of the 
then next session, the doors of this institution should be opened for 
students of law": and Professor Edward Mayes was engaged to take 
the active control and instruction of that class. 

Our Law School was not. even then, in any sense an experiment. 
Before that step was determined on a respectable class was already 
secured for the first session. Dr. Mayes came to us with over four- 
teen years of experience as a law professor in the State University, 
and with a reputation for ability and skill as an instructor w^hich 
was thoroughly established. He had already secured the valuable 
assistance of a number of most accomplished lawyers, who promised 
to deliver occasional lectures, thus adding greatly to the interest 
and variety of the instruction offei'ed. These gentlemen were, 
besides others whose aid was afterwards obtained, Judge J. A. P. 
Campbell, ex-Chief Justice of the Supi-eme Court: Hon. Frank 
Johnston, ex- Attorney-General : Hon. S. S. Calhoon, ex-Circuit 
Judge and President of the Constitutional Convention : Hon. Thos. 
A. McWillie, State Reporter. 


The total attendance during- the first year was twenty-eight, of 
whom fifteen were classed as Seniors. At the expiration of the 
college year fifteen students presented themselves to the Hon. H. C. 
Conn, Chancellor, presiding over the Chancery Court, for examina- 
tion for license to practice law, in conformity with the requirements 
of the Annotated Code of 1892. They were subjected to a rigid 
written examination, in open court, and their written answers 
were, as the law directs, forwarded by the Chancellor to the Su- 
preme Judges. Every applicant 2J(^ssed this ordeal successfully and 
received his license. Not one failed. The names of those fifteen young- 
lawyers are given on page 3 of this catalogue. 

We point with pride to this result of the first year's work of our 
school. The nature of the examination passed, being held by the 
Chancellor in his official character, and the examination answers 
being graded and valued exclusively by the Judges of the Supreme 
Court, puts beyond question or cavil the genuineness of that result. 
We do not ask of our patrons, or of those who may contemplate 
becoming our patrons, to accept any statement of our own, or any 
finding of our own. The finding and the statement are those of the 
Judicial Department of the State : and every law graduate of Mill- 
saps College stands before the world endorsed not by the College 
alone (which is much), but also by the State itself, speaking through 
its Supreme Judges. This is more than can be said for any other 
young lawyers in the State. None other have such a double ap- 
proval as part of their regular course. 

The location of the school at Jackson enables the managers to 
oft'er to the students extraordinary advantages, in addition to the 
institution itself. Here is located the strongest bar of the State, 
whose management of their cases in court, and whose arguments 
will furnish an invaluable series of object lessons and an unfailing- 
fountain of instruction to the students. Here also are located 
courts of all kinds known in the State, embracing not only the ordi- 
nary Municipal and the Circuit and Chancery Courts, but also the 
United States Court and the Supreme Court. Thus the observant 
student may follow the history and course of eases in actual litiga- 
tion, froin the lowest tribunal to the highest : and observe, in their 
practical operation, the nice distinction between the State and 
Federal jurisdiction and practice. Hei*e also is located the extensive 
and valuable State Law Library, unequaled in the State, the privi- 
leges of which each student may enjoy v.-ithout cost. Here, too, 
where the Legislature convenes every second year, the student has 
an opportunity, without absenting himself from his school, to wit- 
ness the delioerations of that body and observe the passage of the 
laws which, in after life, he may be called upon to study and apply : 
thus he acquires a knowledge of the methods and practice of legis- 



Applicants for admission to the Junior class must be at least nine- 
teen years of age : those for admission to the Senior Class must be 
at least twenty. Students may enter the .Junior Class without any 
preliminary examination, a good English elementary education 
being all that is required. Students may enter the Senior Class 
upon satisfactory examination on the matter of the Junior course or 
its equivalent. Xo student %Yill be graduated on less than five 
months of actual attendance in the school. 

Each student will be required to present satisfactory certificates 
of good moral character. 

Each student will be required to pay a tuition fee upon entrance. 
of fifty dollars for the session's instruction. Xo rebate from this fee 
will be made because a student may desire to attend for a period less 
than a full session. 


The full course of study will consist of two years, the Junior and 
the Senior, each comprising forty -weeks, five exercises per week. 

The instruction will consist mainly of daily oral examination of 
the students on lessons assigned in standard text-books. Formal 
written lectures will not be read. The law is too abstruse to be 
learned in that way. The professor will accompany the examina- 
tion by running comments upon the text, illusti-ating and explain- 
ing it, and showing how the law as thei'ein stood has been modified 
or reversed by recent adjudications and legislation. 

The course will be carefully planned and conducted so as to meet 
the requirements of the "Mississippi law in respect to the admission 
of applicants to pi'actice law. by examination before the Chancery 
Court, and will therefore embrace all of the titles prescribed by law 
for that examination, viz : (1) The law of Real property; (2) The 
law of Personal property : (3) The law of Pleading and Evidence : 
(4) The Commercial Law : (5) The Criminal Law: (6) Chancery and 
Chancery Pleadings : (7j The Statute Law of the State : (8) The 
Constitution of the State and the L'nited States. 

The objects set for accomplishment by this school are two : First. 
to prepare young men for examination for license to practice law, in 
such manner as both to ground them thoroughly in elementary legal 
principles and also to prepare them for examination for license with 
assurance of success ; Secondly, to equip them for actual practice 
by a higher range of legal scholarship than what is merely needed 
for a succefsful examination for license. Therefore our course of 
study is so arranged as fully to meet both of these ends. 

First — The curriculum of the Junior Class will embrace each of 


the eight subjects on which the applicant for license is required hy 
the Code to be examined. A careful, detailed and adequate course 
is followed, so that any student, even although he shall never have 
read any law before coming to ns, if he will apply himself with rea- 
sonable fidelity, can go before the Chancellor, at the expiration of 
his Junior year, with a certainty of success. The preparation of 
applicants for license, in one year, will be, in short, a specialty of 
this school. 

When a student shall have completed his Junior year, he will 
have open to him either one of two courses : He may stand his ex- 
amination for 'license before the Chancellor, or he may stand his 
examination before the law professor simply for advancement to the 
Senior Class if he does not care to stand for license at that time 
If he shall be examined before the Chancellor, and pass, he will be 
admitted to the Senior Class, of course, and without further exami- 
nation, in case he shall desire to finish his course with us and take a 
degree of Bachelor of Laws. On the other hand, if he prefers to 
postpone his examination for license, he can be examined by the 
professor for advancement merely, and stand his test for license at 
the hands of the court at the end of the Senior year. 

As stated above, the Senior year is designed to give to the student 
a broader and deeper culture than is needed only for examination 
for a license. It is not. strictly speaking, a post-graduate course, 
since it must be taken before graduation : but it is a post-licentiate 
course, and the degree conferred at its conclusion represents that 
much legal accomplishment in excess of the learning needed for 
license to practice. 

More specifically stated the course of study for each year will be 
as follows : 



Blackstone's Commentaries, Clarke's Criminal Law. 

Stephen on Pleading. Clarke s Criminal Procedure. 

1st vol. Greealeaf on Evidence. Kent's Commentaries (Commer-

drilled in the practical conduct of cases. 


Cbe [preparatory Department, 

Head Master Ricketts. 
Assistant Master Bailey. 

The main object of this Department is to prepare students for the 
Freshman class of the College. The lack at present of good train- 
ing schools in our State makes the need for such a department im- 
perative. To students who find it necessary to leave home in order 
to fit themselves for college, we offer special advantages. By 
coming here they will be quickly and thoroughly prepared for the 
regular college classes. Young men who are prepared for college 
in their English studies, but who are behind in their Latin or 
Greek, will find in this department the facilities they need for 
bring up these studies. 

requirements for admission. 

No student will be admitted into this Department who is under 
12 years of age. For entrance into the First Y_ear Preparatory 
Class, the pupil must be able to read well, and must display a fair 
knowledge of the rudiments of Englsh Grammar, Geography, and 
Arithmetic. In other words, he should be familiar with the leading 
facts in descriptive geography, particularly that of Europe ana 
America ; should be pi'epared to solve intelligently examples in 
Grammar School Arithmetic to Compound Interest : and in English 
Grammar, should know well the parts of speech and their modifica- 
tion, and the construction and analysis of simple sentences. 

Applicants for admission into the Second Year Class will be ex- 
pected to have completed Geogra^jhy, LTnited States History, Gram" 
mar School Arithmetic, Algebra to Fractions and Intermediate 
Grammar. In case Latin is studied the candidate will be examined 
on Collar and Daniell's First Latin Book, or its equivalent. As the 
transition from disconnected sentences to Caesar would be too ab- 
rupt for most students, selections from Viri Romae are j-ead in class 
during the last quarter of the first year, in connection with the 
First Latin Book. It is therefore recommended that students pre- 
paring to enter the Ctesar class read at least fifty pages in this or 


some equivalent text-book. During the past session the class in 
Caesar read the first four books of the Gallic War. 

Greek is begun in the second year of the Preparatory course, 
White's First Geek Book being the text-book used. Pupils are 
thoroughly drilled on the forms of the language, and are also famil- 
iarized with the principles of syntax treated of in the latter part of 
the First Book. This language is so taught as to render the stu- 
dent able by the end of the session to convert English sentences of 
moderate difficulty into Greek, and to translate passages from Xen- 
ophon with facility. 

In the second term of the second year the study of practical rhet- 
oric is begun. The student is, at this point, drilled in the correc- 
tion of exercises in false syntax, and is taught to distinguish the 
principal figures of speech. Compositions are required every two 
weeks throughout the session. 

The course in English is designed not only to teach the student to 
write and speak with grammatical correctness, but also to inspire in 
him a love of good literature. The reading and study of classics 
like Scott's Lady of the Lake and 'Ben Franklin's -Autobiography 
can hardly fail of being beneficial in effect. 

Those who do not take a regular college course will be expected to 
pursue all the studies laid down with the exception of Latin and 
Greek. Physical Geography and Civil Government are not required 
of those taking Greek. In the Avork of the Department, thorough- 
ness at all times insisted upon. 

In the second year a short course in Science is offered: so that the 
work of the Department now covers all that is required for a first 
grade teacher's certificate in the public schools of our State. 

Students in this department who wish to prepare themselves for 
ordinary business life, may have their studies directed to this end. 
The work so arranged will embrace the Preparatory English Course 
with the addition of Book-keeping. Special attention will be given 
also, to PennmanshiiD, Practical Composition and Commercial 

Those who purpose taking this course should correspond with the 
President or with the Headmaster of the Department.

Millsaps College is named in honor of Major R. W. Millsaps. 
whose munificent gifts have made the existence of the institution 
possible. The College is the property of the Methodist Episcopal 
Church, South, and was organized by the concurrent action of the 
Mississiijpi and North Mississippi Conferences. It is not sectarian, 
however, but numbers among its patrons members of all the Chris- 
tian denominations. 

The College has an endowment of $100,000. and several partially- 
endowed scholarships. The buildings and grounds are worth $70,- 
000 or more. The first scholastic session began September the 
29th, 1892. and the College has had remarkable prosperity from the 
beginning. The generous founder, Major Millsaps, has put the 
College under renewed obligation by the gift of the Webster Science 
Hall, at a cost of $10,000. 


Jackson, the Capital of the State and the seat of the College, is 
easily accessible by four lines of railway. Twelve passenger 
trains ari'ive and depart daily. The College is located just north 
of the city, on a commanding elevation, with perfect drainage, and 
and in a beautiful campus of seventy-five or more acres. A healthier 
spot it would be difficult to find within the limits of the State. 
Jackson is a small city of 9.000, with handsome churches and public 
buildings, and is noted for the refinement, and intelligence of its 
people. Its literary, social and religious advantages are superior. 
Bishop Gallowaj'. President of the Board of Trustees, resides here, 
and will deliver a course of several lectures and special sermons 
during the coming session. 


The Library has commodious quarters for a stack-room and a 
reading-room in Webster Science Hall. It is a matter of great 
gratification that we open the College with such a large and valu- 
able collection of books. Most of the well-selected libraries of the 
late Dr. C. K. Marshall and Rev. W. G, Millsaps, besides many ex- 


collent volumeH fx-om ex-Chancellor Edward Mayes, Rev. A. F. 
Watkins and others, have been generously contributed. In addi- 
tion to his other munificent gifts, Major R. W. Millsaps has con- 
tributed $500 to be expended in purchasing books for the Library. 


Mrs. J. R. Bingham, of Carrollton, Miss., has given $700 to, form 
a fund to be known as the Martha A. Turner Library Fund. This 
fund is invested and the annual interest used in purchasing books 
for the Library. 


Two large halls have been provided for the Literary Societies 
organized for the purpose of improvement in debate, declamation! 
composition and acquaintance with the methods of deliberative 
bodies. These societies are conducted by the students, under con- 
stitutions and by-laws of their own framing. They ars named 
respectively the Galloway and Lamar Societies, and contribute 
greatly to the improvement of their members. 


We do not adopt the old dormitory system, and in lieu tjiereof 
have established "Students' Homes," capable of accommodating a 
limited number of boarders, and each placed in charge of a Chris- 
tian family. Two of these homes, Asbury Home and Williams 
Home, each with a capacity of from twenty-four to thirty young 
men, are now ready for occupancy. In addition we have severa^ 
small cottages, in which students can board themselves at reduced 
cost, or, if they prefer, lodge there and take their meals at one of 
the "Homes." No student will be permitted to room at the cottages 
without special permission from the President. 


The friends of the late John A. Ellis, of the Mississippi Confer- 
ence, and the Rev. J. H. Brooks, of the North Mississippi Confer- 
ence, have built two cottages for the accommodation of students. 
These homes are named respectively the John A. Ellis Cottage and 
the J. H. Brooks Cottage. 


Several scholarships have been established, the income from 
which will be used in aiding deserving young men in securing a 
collegiate education. The W. H. Tribbett Scholarship, the W. 
H. Watkins Scholarship, the Jefferson Davis Scholarship [estab- 


lished by Mrs. Annie Davis Gunning], and the Peebles Scholarship 
[established by Mrs. N. P. McPherson]. 


All correspondence intended for students at the College should be 
addressed care Millsaps College. Mails are distributed to students 
on the campus, thereby avoiding the necessity of personal visits to 
the city postoffice. 


Students are allowed some liberty of choice of classes and courses, 
either by themselves or their friends, limited to the judgment of 
the Faculty and by the exigence of classification. A student is not 
allowed to withdraw from any class to which he has been assigned 
without permission of the President and the Professor in his de. 


Written examinations will be held twice a year, and special ex- 
aminations at other times as the several profesors may elect. 


During the session reports will be sent to the parent or guardian 
of each student, in which will be an estimate of his class standing 
and deportment. 


It will be the constant care of the administration to guard the 
moral conduct of students. The discipline will be firm. Obedience 
to college regulations will be strictly required. Young men unwill- 
ing to submit to reasonable, wholesome government are not desired, 
and will not be retained 


Candidates for admission are required to give satisfactory evi- 
dence of good moral character, and if the candidate comes from 
another college he must show that he was honorably discharged. 


Prizes are annually awarded for excellence in : 

1. Oratory. The J. B. Ligon Medal and the Oscar Kearney An- 
drews Medal. 

2. Reading the Sacred Scriptures. The Gunning Medal. 

3. Declamation. The Millsaps Medal. 



Applicants for admission must report to the President as soon as 
possible after their arrival, and secure board at some place ap- 
proved by the College authorities. Except in cases where special 
permission is granted students to board in the cottages or in town, 
they will be required to board in one of the Students' Homes or in 
private families near the College. New students should be present 
on Monday and Tuesday, that they may be examined and classed be. 
fore the opening day, Wednesday, September, 14. 


Examinations tor those applying for admission into Millsaps Col- 
lege will be held September 13-14. See calendar on page 2. See 
detailed statement as to entrance requirements, page 19. 


It has been the unvarying policy -of the College to discourage 
inter-collegiate contests. It is believed that there is in the college 
community sufficient incentive to active interest in athletics. With 
the help of friends, the students have erected and equipped what is 
said to be the best gymnasium in the State. A trained instructor 
has 'Charge of daily classes in gymnastic exercises. The annual 
spring Field Day gives opportunity for public contests in running, 
jumping, putting the shot, etc. There is a student organization^ 
The Millsaps College Athletic Association, which helps to keep up 
enthusiastic interest in healthful sports. A member of the faculty 
is president of this association. 


Students will be required to be present at morning worship in 
the College Chapel. In this daily service the faculty and pupils 
come together to hear the reading of the Sacred Scriptures and to 
engage in singing and prayer. 

The Young Men's Christian Association holds weekly meetings, 
and prayer meetings are regularly conducted by the pupils. These 
agencies keep up a healthy spiritual interest and at the same time 
train the young men in active Christian work. All students are re- 
quired to attend church at least once every Sunday and are expected 
to be present at the Sunday School. 


Willi tile view of ])r()motiiig general culture among the pupils 
and 1(1 fiirnisli IIkmu i)le;isant and iirofitabli' entertainment, occa- 


sional lectures are delivered in the College Chapel by distinguished 


Tuition for full scholastic year $ 30 00 

Incidental fee 5 00 

Library fee 1 00 

The session is divided into two terms and payments must be made 
as follows : 


Tuition (payable in advance) $ 15 00 

Incidental fee (payable in advance) 5 00 

Library fee " " 100 

$ 21 00 

Tuition (payable in advance) $ 15 00 

Students who do not enter until the second term will be required 
to pay the Incidental and Library fees. 

Students preparing for the work of the ministry in any Christian 
denomination, and the sons of preachers will have no tuition to pay, 
but all students will be required to pay the Incidental and Library 

Board in "Students "Homes" and good families can be had at $12 
per month, including lodging and lights. Each student is expected 
to furnish his own pillow, bed clothes and toilet articles. 

If students prefer to room in one of the cottages and take their 
meals elsewhere, table board will not cost them more than $10 per 

Ample facilities are provided for board at the above rates. Any 
student may feel assured that board will not eost him more than 
$120 for the entii'e session. 

We are not unmindful, however, of the fact that there are hun 
dreds of worthy young men, i-ich in mental and moral gifts, and 
capabilities, who are compelled to reduce the cost of living to the 
minimum in order to enjoy the advantages of educational institu- 
tions. Millsaps College will always be in hearty sympathy with 
this class of young men, and the authorities will encourage them in 
every possible way. 

Many of our students by boarding themselves reduce the cost of 


living below S7 per month. Our facilities for accommodating thig 
class of students have been enlarged. 

In addition to the Tuition and Incidental Fees students in Chemis- 
try will be charged a Laboratory fee of $5: students in Physics, $3: stu- 
dents on graduation will be required to pay a diploma fee of $5. 

Tuition in the Law Department $50.
