DETAILED STATEMENTS 

IN REGARD TO 

The Several Departments of the College 



ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS. 

The reader of the outline of courses will notice that 
three undergraduate degrees are offered by the Literary 
Department of the College— B. A., B. S., Ph. B. It will 
also be seen from the following schedule that the prepar- 
ation required for the different courses is not the same. 

B. A. Degree — The Bachelor of Arts course offers special 
instruction in the departments of Latin and Greek. 
This course presupposes one year of preparatory work 
in Greek, two in Latin. In order to be allowed to enter 
upon the B. A. course, the applicant must stand an 
approved examination in English, Latin, Greek, and 
Mathematics. 

B. S. Degree — The Bachelor of Science course offers 
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 approved exam- 
ination in English and Mathematics. 

Ph. B. Degree — The Bachelor of Philosophy course offers 
special work in History, 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 approved examination in 
English, Mathematics, History and Geography. 

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

The Master's Degree. 

Each school of collegiate instruction offers work look- 
ing towards the Master's Degree. Applicants for the M. 
A., M. S., or Ph. M. degree will be required to elect three 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 21 

courses of study, not more than two of which may be in 
the same school or under the same professor. The prin- 
cipal subject chosen — known as the major course — will be 
expected to employ one-half 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 Col- 
lege engaged in graduate study. In most cases non-resi- 
dent study during two or more years will be accepted as 
the equivalent of one year's residen work. All examina- 
tions 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 depart- 
ment. 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. 

M. 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, Biology, 
Geology, Mathematics, and Astronomy. His second 
minor 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 Psychology, 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 desrree. 



Entrance Examinations. 

Tha authorities of Millsaps College prefer that appli- 
cants for admission into the College should submit them- 
selves to the regular test of an entrance examination. But 
in case the Principals of Preparatory schools desire to 
have their pupils admitted on trial without examination, 



22 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

arrangements looking- to that end may be made as a result 
of correspondence with the College authorities. 

Special attention is called to the following statement 
of requirements for admission into the several depart- 
ments: 

I. Latin and Greek — Applicants for admission into 
the Freshman Class are examined on the work of the Pre- 
paratory Department. 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 languages, a careful 
study of the forms and of the leading principles of the 
syntax. Applicants are expected also to have some facil- 
ity in translating simple Latin and Greek at sight and 
in writing 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 throughout the State. 

FIRST YEAR. 

Latin — The First Latin Book (Collar and Daniell); Gra- 
datim (Collar); Grammar (Allen and Greenough). 

SECOND YEAR. 

Latin — First Latin Readings (Arrowsmith and Whicher); 
Caesar, Gallic War (Kelsey, 8th edition); New Latin 
Composition (Daniell); History (Creighton's Primer). 

Greek — The First Greek Book (White); Anabasis (Good- 
win and White j;Grammar (Goodwin) ;History (Fyife'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 con- 
tinous passages for translation as soon as practicable, and 
for this purpose selections from Collar's Gradatim and 
something of the Anabasis may he 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 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 23 

Greek, written 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 sufl&cient. 

Certainly as much history as is indicated above may 
be asked of the preparaaory schools, but it is hoped that 
they wiU 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, treatment. 

II. Mathematics — For admission to the Freshman 
Class in Mathematics, a thorough knowledge of Arithme- 
tic and Algebra through quadratic equations is required. 
The only suggestion here offered to teachers of these 
subjects is that there be joined to systematic and thor- 
ough teaching a judicious system of examinations. Such 
examinations help the student to acquire better methods 
of study, and tend to remove from the minds of the well- 
taught students unreasonable dread of examinations. 

The standards for entrance examinations are Went- 
worth's Grammar School Arithmetic, and Wentworth's 
Higher Algebra. The student making the highest grade 
in Freshman Mathematics for the session 1899-1900 was 
prepared for college in the Brandon High school. 

in. History and Geography — An approved examina- 
tion 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 are recommended as covering 
the ground of the examination. 

IV. 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 familiar 
with grammatical forms and must be acquainted with the 
elementary facts of practical rhetoric. He will be required 
to write a short composition — correct in spelling, punctu- 
ation and grammar — on a subject chosen from the books 
assigned to be read for that purpose. 

The following books are well suited for use in pre- 
paring students for admission into the Freshman Class: 
Grammar — Whitney and Lockwood's English Grammar or 
Longmans' School Grammar. Composition and Rhetoric: 



24 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

Genung's Outlines of Rhetoric, or Butler's School Eng-lish. 
It is desirable that the preparatory schools make use 
of the list of books for reading- and study looking- toward the 
uniform entrance requirements in English, adopted by the 
principal American colleges. This year we shall examine 
on any four books from the list. Hereafter we shall 
require preparation on all the books announced.

26 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

DEPARTMENTS OF INSTRUCTION 



The departments comprising the Course of Instruction 
are: 

I. The School of Philosophy and Biblical Instruction, 
n. The School of Latin and Greek. 

III. The School of Chemistry and Physics. 

IV. The School of Biology and Geology. 

V. The School of Mathematics and Astronomy. 
VI. The School of History and Economics. 
VII. The School of Modern Languages. 
VIII. The School of English. 



L The School of Philosophy and Biblical Instruction 

PRESIDENT MURRAH. 

Philosophy of the mental economy and the great sub- 
ject 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, LogicandtheHistory of Philosophy. 
n. Ethics, Political Economy, Christian Evidences. 

Throughout the School of Philosophy text-books and 
books of reference of the most approved character w^ill be 
used, and the method of instruction will be by lectures, by 
daily oral examinations, by analysis of subjects studied, 
and by original theses to be presented by the students on 
topics prescribed relating to the various departments 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 Instruction. 

Course Leading to the Master^ s Degree, 

Applicants for the degree of M. A. or M. S. will be 
required, in this department, to devote at least one year to 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 27 

the study of Hamilton's Metaphysics, the History of Phil- 
osophy and the Evidences of Christianity. 

Text-Books: Hamilton's Lectures, History of Philos- 
ophy (Schwegler), The Grounds of Theistic and Christian 
Belief (Fisher). 



II. The School of Latin and Greek 

PROFESSOR SWEARINGEN. 

In the outline of the course leading- to the degree of 
Bachelor of Arts the text and editions used in this depart- 
ment are enumerated. 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 founda- 
tion for classical scholarship. The entire session is 
therefore devoted to the study of Cicero and Xenophon. The 
f ormsare carefully reviewed, the systematic study of the syn- 
tax is begun, and the importance of acquiring a vocabulary 
is at all times emphasized. Throughout the year daily 
practice in inflecting 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 prose com- 
position. 

The main object of the course outlined for the Sopho- 
more Class is to read the texts selected with some appreci- 
ation of their value as works of art. To this end the class 
is first put in possession of the literary and historical set- 
ting 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 on the 
authors read, and to use in translating, a pure English 
idiom. This ability to grasp the thought in the order of 
the original isthenecessary condition of an adequate appre- 
ciation of the classics as literature. Reading at sight, there- 
fore, forms a not unimportant part of the work of the class 
room, while portions of the texts are, from time to time, 



28 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

required to be turned, in writing-, into the best English 
which the class can command. 

The Junior Class is assumed to have reached a some- 
what advanced stage in the study of the classics. Matters 
of g-rammatical 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, presumably, 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, in outline, 
will be made of the Homeric Question, of the Iliad and 
JEmeid as types of the epic, and of the history in general 
of this form of poetry. 

The Satires of Horace are made the basis of a running- 
commentary on the customs and institutions of the time. 
His epistles challenge a critical and historical examination 
of his views on literature, and invite a consideration of his 
philosophic reflections as the expression of the maturer 
thoughts and higher aspirations of an enlightened pagan. 

In the study of the Attic tragedy and comedy the his- 
tory 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 neces- 
sary to a clear conception of a Greek play on the stage, 
and so to an intelligent estimate of its dramatic as well as 
of its literary worth. 

Courses Leading to the Masier''s Degree. 

Two courses are offered 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 exclusively 
with the subject of Epigraphy. In both courses a mini- 
mum of histor}'- and philology is required. 

The scope of each course is indicated by the schedule 
which follows 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). 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 29 

Grammaire Comparee du Grec et du Latin 
(Henry), fifth edition, or the translation of 
the second edition. 

History of Greece (Abbott). 

History of Rome (Shuckburgh). 

II. In the Course in Literature : 

A. Latin. 

Roman Satire (Lucilius, Horace, Persiiis 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'Epigraphie Latine (Cagnat). 
Historical Latin Inscriptions (Rushforth). 
Exempla Inscriptionum Latinarum (Wilmanns). 

B. Greek. 

An Introduction to Greek Epigraphy (Robertson). 
Grammatik der Attischen Inschriften (Meister- 

hans). 
Greek Historical Inscriptions (Hicks). 
The Dialects of Greece (Smyth). 
Delectus Inscriptionum Graecarum (Cauer). 

Of the works here enumerated several are required 



30 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

only in part. The candidate is expected, for example, to 
have a general acquaintance with Doerpfeld's new theory 
of the Greek theater 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 
consulted from time to time for further illustration of 
matters inadequately presented in the introductions of 
Eg-bert 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 subject. 



IIL The School of Chemistfy and Physics 

PROFESSOR MUCKENFUSS. 

The rooms given up to the study of these subjects 
are modern both m size and convenience, and occupy the 
whole low^er floor of Webster Science Hall. The recita- 
tion room and physical laboratory open 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 chemical laboratory, by which arrangement a 
large auditorium forty by sixty feet is obtainable for 
public scientific entertainments. The chemical laboratory 
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 storeroom, over 
which an assistant presides during laboratory hours. Gas, 
water, experiment tables, hoods and pneumatic troughs 
are to be found in convenient places. 

The course in this department consists of three years 
of chemistry and three years of physics. Candidates for 
the B. A. degree take one year of each; those for the Ph. 
B. degree, two years of physics and one of chemistry; 
while B. S. students study the whole course. The policy 
of employing an assistant for the chemical and one for the 
physical laboratory enables the department to give full 
efficiency to its equipment. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 31 

Chemistry — This subject is taugfht by recitations and 
y work which each student must perform in the labora- 
tory. Recitations are not illustrated by experiments, 
which distract the student's attention, but are devoted 
entirely to the theoretical aspects of the subject. It is 
aimed that the labratory be kept well equipped with 
apparatus 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 inspection, but also 
cultivate a hand careful to the smallest detail, an eye 
observant of the slightest phenomenon, and habits of 
neatness, skill and economy. 

The Sophomore course consists per week of twohours' 
recitation, and one afternoon in the laboratory experiment- 
ing with substances considered in the recitation. Library 
copies of Watt's Revised Dictionary, Thorpe's Applied 
Chemistry, and Roscoe and Schorlemmer's Treatise are 
on hand for reference. In the latter part of the year's 
laboratory work, special attention is paid to inorganic 
preparations. Each student will make by approved indus- 
trial methods many typical salts and preserve them as 
specimens. 

The Junior course occupies three hours a week in the 
recitation room, and one afternoon a week in the laboratory. 
Organic chemistry, especially in its relations to medicine 
and physiology, is fully studied with head and hand. 
Qualitative analysis receives full attention. Physical 
chemistry is a special feature of the course, while the 
applications to technology and agriculture are not neg- 
lected. 

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 laboratory text- 
books will be dispensed with as far as possible. The 
student is referred frequently to the Fresenius systems 
and to the works elsewhere mentioned, but he will be 
taught to feel that the substances and apparatus around 
him are his alphabet. The teacher is constantly on hand 
to guide and encourage, and endeavors to inspire a love for 
things — a neglected department of education. 



33 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

Physics — The Freshman Physics class recites twice 
a week from an elementary text. Illustrative experiments 
are shown as frequently as seems desirable. The object 
of the course is to familiarize the mind of the beginner 
with the phenomena and laws of nature, so as to enable it 
later on to grapple successfully with the intellectual task 
of explaining and correlating these. 

The Junior Year, required of all students before gradua- 
tion, consists of two hours recitation and one afternoon in 
the laboratory every week. This laboratory will soon be 
equipped for effective work. All experiments are care- 
fully performed by the students themselves, who are 
encouraged to develop independence of thought. The 
mental side of laboratory work is stressed fully as much 
as the manual. 

The Senior Course is largely a study of special topics 
in physics. The texts will be varied from year to year. 
It is designed that this class especially shall keep in touch 
with the scientific progress of the day. 

Courses Leading to the Master'' s Degree. 

In the post-graduate work of this department, 100 
hours of laboratory work in the subject chosen are 
required. In addition, a satisfactory examination must 
be passed upon one of the following reading courses: 

Chemistry — Remsen's Theoretical Chemistry, Freer's 
General Chemistry, Speyer's Physical Chemistry, Thorp's 
Industrial Chemistry. 

Physics — Hastings and Beach's General Physics, 
Thompson's Electricity and Magnetism, Cajori's History 
of Physics, Glazebrook's Heat and Light. 



IV, The School of Biology and Geology 

R. B. RICKETTS, FELLOW. 

The two front rooms on the lower floor of Webster 
Science Hall are occupied by this department of instruc- 
tion, the one for a museum, the other for a class room. 
The Museum contains about 300 minerals collected from 
various parts of the world, 200 specimens of rocks pre- 
sented by the United States Geological Survey, and a col- 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 33 

lection of Mississippi rocks and fossils. The excellence 
of the latter is yearly increased by donations from friends 
of the colleg"e. 

All Seniors are required to study biology and geology. 
Each class recites twice a week. In the case of the former 
science, it is aimed to enhance the interest of the subject 
by microscopic work of a general character. 

Several geological expeditions, regularly made in the 
fall and spring to localities easily accessible from Jackson, 
give the class a practical conception of this kind of sur- 
veying. The college is fortunate in being located in the 
midst of a region that is quite varied in geological char- 
acter. 

Courses Leading to the Master'' s Degree. 

Graduate w^ork is offered in both biology and geology, 
but for the present no laboratory or field work will be 
required. An examination must be passed upon a course 
of reading, which for each subject is as follows: 

Biology — William's Geological Biology, Wilson's Cell 
in Development and Inheritance, Haddon's Study of Man, 
Jordan's Bacteriology. 

Geology — Tarr's Economic Geology of the United 
States, William's Elements of Crystallography, Rosen- 
busch's Microscopical Physiography of Minerals and 
Rocks, Le Conte's Elements of Geology. 



V, The School of Mathematics and Astronomy 

professor MOORE. 

The general aim is to have the work of the depart- 
ment brought within such limits, and made so systematic 
and thorough as to secure to tne students a full 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 discipline 
and development, can the best results be obtained. 

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



34 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

The Freshman Class studies Algebra and Geometry. 
In Alg-ebra the aim will be to secure to the student, besides 
skill and accuracy in the performance of algebraic opera- 
tions, an increased power of abstract analysis and reas- 
oning. 

The subjects embraced in this course are: Quadratic 
equations, simultaneous quadratics, properties of quad- 
ratics, ratio, proportion, variation, progressions, inde- 
terminate coefficients, binominal theorem, logarithms, 
choice, probability, variables and limits, and series. 
Wentworth's Higher Algebra, chapters 19-26, 28, 29,33,34. 

In Geometry the student will be aided in forming cor- 
rect geometrical conceptions and in gaining an insight 
into the true spirit and methods of geometrical reasoning. 

The value of this subject in promoting, when properly 
studied and taught, definiteness. of conception, precision 
and directness of statement, and correctness of deduction 
is well known. Weekly original exercises will be required. 

In the Sophomore Year, Plane and Spherical Trigo- 
nometry and Surveying are studied and completed, and 
Analytic Geometry is begun. Trigonometry receives the 
attention which its importance demands. 

The class studies trigonometric functions of acute 
angles, the right triangles, goniometry, the oblique 
triangle, from 40 to 60 miscellaneous problems in Plane 
Trigonometry, the right spherical triangle, the oblique 
spherical triangle. Wentworth's New Trigonometry, 
chapters 1-5, 7, 8. 

The course in surveying embraces recitations, field 
work with chain, tape, compass, and transit, and private 
work. 

Plane Analytic Geometry through the parabola 
(Nichol's Analytic Geometry, chapters 1-6) is embraced 
in the work of the Sophomore Year. 

The Junior Class completes Analytic Geometry and 
studies The Differential and Integral Calculus, and the 
Elements of Mechanics. The elegant methods of mathe- 
matical investigation claiming the student's attention dur- 
ing this year are shown to combine logical rigor with great 
efficiency, brevity and comprehensiveness. The aim is to 
secure to the student a good degree of appreciation of 
these methods and of skill in their use. 

The Junior B. A. Class studies, during the first term 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 35 

the ellipse, the hyperbola, plane loci of the second order, 
hig"her curves, the elements of Solid Analytic Geometry, 
and surfaces of the second order. Nichols Part I., chapters 
7, 8, 9 and 10. and Part II., entire. 

During- the second term this class studies the Ele- 
ments of Mechanics. Text-book, Wng-ht's Elements of 
Mechanics. 

The Junior B. S. Class studies, in addition to the 
above course, first term, The Differential Calculus (New- 
comb.) 

Second term, Integral Calculus (Newcomb). 

The Senior Class studies General Astronomy through 
the entire year. It is meant to supply that amount of in- 
formation upon the subject which may be fairly expected 
of every "liberally educated" person. The course will 
g-ive a clear and accurate presentation of leading astro- 
nomical 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, Determin- 
ants and the Theory of Equations. 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 pursue successfully more advanced studies in 
the modern mathematics. 

Courses Leading to the Master's Degree, 

Selected topics from the following lines of work are 
the courses offered in this department to applicants for 
the Master's Degree: 

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

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



36 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

VL The School of History and Ecofiomics 

PROFESSOR HANNER. 

The advantages to be derived from the study of his- 
tory are two-fold: Those which make for mental discip- 
line and those which contribute 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 power of accomplishment. Those 
powers of the mind which the study of history especially 
develops are memory, judgment, and the power of expres- 
sion. Dates, those bugbears of many students, while they 
lose most of their terrors when a relation of cause and 
effect has been established between the events for which 
they stand, serve to inculcate that accuracy and definite- 
ness of recollection so much to be desired. 

The problems of history are the problems of every day 
life, and as such they cannot be solved by any set rules or 
formulae, but the judgment must be exercised in a greater 
degree than in any other study. 

Another significant advantage of this study is that it 
may give valuable training of the powers of expression, 
both oral and written, in the practice of narration and in 
the supplying of topics for both brief and long composition 
work. In law and journalism the information that it 
implies is indispensable, and for every citizen it is needed 
for the comprehension of literature, for the understanding 
of political institutions and for the basis of a well founded, 
intelligent love of country. 

The course offered extends through four years; the 
first year is devoted to the study of Ancient Histor}^; the 
second year to Mediaeval and Modern History; the third 
year to England and the United States; the fourth year to 
the constitutional history of the United States and to the 
systems of government of the European nations. 

The first term 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 Cur- 
tius, which are to be found in the College Library. 

Roman History will be studied during the second 
term. Gibbon, Capes, Merivals, Beesley, Smith, and 
Mommsen will afford parallel reading. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 37 

The second year will be devoted to the study of 
Mediaeval and Modern (European) History. 

TheHistory of England will be studied during the first 
term of the Junior year. Macaulay, Hume, Greek, Lecky, 
Gardiner, Stubbs, and Morris will be used as parallel read- 
ing. Thesecond termof the Juniorandthefirsttermof the 
Senior year are given to the study of our own country and 
people. The Junior class will study the period between 
1765 and 1865; and the Senior 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 Junior and dur- 
ingthe Senior yearwdllbe supplemented with readingsfrom 
Schouler, Bancroft, McMaster, Adams, Fisher, Hart. 

Course Leading to the Mastej-'s Degree. 

A course in history, whose aim is to develop the power 
of investigation and criticism, is offered. The student 
will be required to prepare original papers on topics rela- 
ting to American History. These papers will be read and 
discussed at such times as the Professor in charge may 
designate. 

In addition to these essays, oral reports on assigned 
portions of such writers as Schouler, Curtis, Bancroft, 
Bryce, Lecky, Hildreth will be heard and discussed at 
regular meetings. 



VIL The School of Modern Languages 

French afid Ger7nan. 

PROFESSOR HANNER. 

A course extending through one and two years is 
offered in German and French respectively. The aim of 
the course is to give the student a thorough mastery of 
the fundamental principles of the two languages, a correct 
pronunciation of French and of German, and a fair 
acquaintance 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 Eng- 
lish sentences and idioms into the corresponding French 
and to daily practice in pronunciation. German is taken 
up in the Sophomore year. 



38 ' MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

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

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 subordinated, and the languages are studied from a 
literary standpoint. During the first term of this year 
the class in French will study such representative prose 
writers as Victor Hugo, Balzac, Daudet, Merimee and 
Halevy. 

During the second term the class in French will make 
a critical study of some of the masterpieces of the dra- 
matic artists of the seventeenth century. 

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

Courses Leading to the Master's Degree. 

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 (Braune); Gotische 
Etymologic (Feist): Mittelhochdeutsche Grammatik 
(Paul); Armer Heinrich (Robertson); Nibelungenlied 
(Piper); History of German Literature (Scherer). 

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



VIII. The School of English 

PROFESSOR BISHOP. 

The work of the Freshman year will be pursued 
with three aims in view. The student will study rhet- 
oric, reciting twice a week, and in connection with a study 



fei' 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 39 

of principles as presented in a text-book, he will be given 
a constant and systematic practice in practical rhetoric by 
means of exercises and compositions. Pancoast's Intro- 
duction to Eng-lish Literature will be studied, with 
recitations twice a week, with the purpose of giving' the 
student a comprehensive and proportionate outline-view of 
the history of English literature. Selections from Eng- 
lish poetry will be studied in class four times a week, with 
the purpose mainly of developing literary appreciation in 
the student; so these poems will be studied in their abso- 
lute literary character rather than with reference to the 
authors, or to their relation to literature in general. Par- 
allel reading will be assigned. 

In the fall term of the Sophomore year the time will 
be given to the study of American Literature. In addition 
to studying the development of the literature, the class 
will study masterpieces in recitation. Parallel work 
will be assigned. In the spring term the class will study 
selections from Tennyson and from Browning in recita- 
tion and as parallel work. 

In the fall term of the Junior year Anglo-Saxon will be 
studied with the primary purpose of giving the student 
an introductory study of the history of the English lan- 
guage. In the spring term Shakspere will be studied in 
class and as parallel. 

The work of the Senior year will be devoted to a study 
of the Romantic Movement in English poetry in the 
eighteenth century. Beginning with the dawn of this 
movement in the poetry of Goldsmith, Gray, and Collins, 
the reaction from classicism will be followed until the 
positive features of romanticism culminate in the poetry 
of Burns, Wordsworth, and Keats. 

In the special Ph. B. course the work of the fall term 
will be a study of the development of the character novel. 
In the spring term recent Southern writers will be 
studied. 

Courses Leading to the Master^s Degree, 

Students who apply for graduate work in English 
may elect for a philological course a study of Old English 
poetry, taking some assigned subject in philological for 
special investigation. They may elect as courses in liter- 
ature a study of the development of the English novel, a 
study of recent literary movements in the South, or a 
study of some aspect of Victorian literature. 



40 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

— THE — 
DEPARTMEiNT OF PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION 



THE LAW SCHOOL 



THE FACULTY 

Rev. William Belton Murrah, D. D., LL. D., President. 

Edward Mayes, LL. D., Dean. 

Assisted by 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 Professional Education, embody- 
ing a Law and a Theological School. 

In the year 1896 the time came when, in the judgment 
of the Trustees, it was possible and proper to establish 
the Law Department. 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 fourteen years of experi- 
ence as a law professor in the State University, and with 
a reputation for ability and skill as an instructor which 
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 instruction 
offered. These gentlemen were, besides others whose 
aid was afterwards obtained. Judge J. A. P. Campbell, 
Ex-Chief Justice of the Supreme Court; Hon. Frank John- 
ston, 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 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 41 

expiration of ttie college year, fifteen students presented 
themselves to the Hon. H. C. Conn, Chancellor, presiding- 
over the Chancery Court, for examination 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 Chan- 
cellor to the Supreme Judges. Every applicant passed this 
ordeal successfully and received his license. Not one failed. The 
names of those fifteen young lawyers were given on page 
3 of the catalogue for 1897-98. 

V/e 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 of&cial character, and 
the examination answers being graded and valued exclu- 
sively 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 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 Millsaps 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 approval as part of their regular course. 

The location of the school at Jackson enables the man- 
agers to offer 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 inval- 
uable series of object lessons and an unfailing fountain of 
iustruction to the students. Here also are located courts 
of all kinds known in the State, embracing not only 
the ordinary Municipal and the Circuit and Chancery 
Courts, but also the United States Court and the Supreme 
Court. Thus the observant student may follow the his- 
tory and course of cases in actual litigation, from the 
lowest tribunal to the highest; and observe in their prac- 
tical operation, the nice distinction between the State and 
Federal jurisdiction and practice. Here also is located 
the extensive and valuable State Law Library, unequaled 
in the State, the privileges of which each student may 



42 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

enjoy without cost. Here, too, where the Legislature 
convenes every second year, the student has an opportun- 
ity, without absenting himself from his school, to witness 
the deliberations 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 meth- 
ods and practice of legislation. 

Applicants for admision to the Junior class must be 
at least nineteen 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 re- 
quired. Students may enter the Senior class upon satis- 
factory examination on the matter of the Junior 'course or 
its equivalent. No student will 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 instruc- 
tion. No rebate from this fee w^ill be made because a 
student may desire to attend for a period less than a full 
session. 

COURSE OF STUDY. 

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

The instruction will consist mainly of daily oral exam- 
ination 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 w^ay. The 
professor will accompany the examination by running 
comments upon the text, illustrating and explaining it, 
and showing how the law as therein stood has been modi- 
fied 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 practice law, by 
examination before the Chancery Court, and will therefore 
embrace all the titles prescribed by law for that examina- 
tion, vig: (1) The Law of Real propert}'; (2) The LaAv of 
Personal Property; (3) The Law of Pleading and Evi- 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 43 

dence; (4) The Commercial Law; (5) The Criminal Law; 
(6) Chancery and Chancery Pleadings; (7) The Statute 
Law of the State; (8) The Constitution of the State and the 
United 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 assur- 
ance of success; Secondly, to equip them for actual 
practice by a higher range of legal scholarship than what 
is merely needed for a successful 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 em- 
brace each of the eight subjects on which the applicant 
for license is required by 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 us, if he will apply himself with rea- 
sonable fidelity, can go before the Chancellor at the expi- 
ration 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 examination for license before the Chancel- 
lor, or he may stand his examination before the law pro- 
fessor 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 fur- 
ther examination, 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 prefer 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 



44

much leg-al accomplishment in excess of the learning- 
needed for license to practice.

carefully instructed and drilled in the practical conduct 
of cases.

MILLSAPS COLLEGE 45 

GENERAL INFORMATION 



Millsaps College is named in honor of Major R. ^V. 
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 organ- 
ized by the concurrent action of the Mississippi 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 5100,000, and sev- 
eral partially endowed scholarships. The buildings and 
the grounds are worth 370,000 or more. The first scholas- 
tic session began September 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 310,000. 

Location 

Jackson, the Capital of the State, and the seat of the 
College, is easily accessible by four lines of railway. 
Twelve passenger trains arrive and depart dail3\ The 
College is located just north of the city, on a commanding 
elevation, with perfect drainage, and in a beautiful campus 
of seventy-five or more acres. A healthier spot it would 
be difiicult to find within the limits of the State. The 
location secures all the advantages of the town and yet 
supplies all the healthful conditions and immunities of 
the country. Jackson is a small city of 12,000, with hand- 
some churches and public buildings, and is noted for the 
refinement and intelligence of its people. Its literary, 
social, and religious advantages are superior. Bishop 
Galloway, President of the Board of Trustees, resides 
here, and his lectures and special sermons delivered from 
time to time add greatly to the interest and profit of each 
session. 

Library 

The Library has commodious quarters for alcoves 
and a reading-room in Webster Science Hall. Il is a 
matter of great gratification that the College, so early in 
its history, has such a large and valuable collection of 



46 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

books. Most of the well-selected libraries of the late Dr. 
C. K. Marshall, and Rev. W. G. Millsaps, besides many 
excellent volumes from Ex-Chancellor Edward Mayes, 
Rev. A. F. Watkins and others, have been g^enerously 
contributed. In addition to his other munificent gifts, 
Major R. W. Millsaps has made many valuable contribu- 
tions to the Library. 

MARTHA A. TURNER LIBRARY. 

Mrs. J. R. Bingham, of Carrollton, Miss., has given 
$800.00 to endow tire Martha A.Turner Library of English 
and American Literature. The fund is invested and the 
annual interest used in purchasing books in this special 
field. 

Literary Societies 

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 constitutions and by- 
laws of their own framing. They are named respectively 
the Galloway and Lamar Societies, and contribute greatly 
to the improvement of their members. 

Students' Homes 

We do not adopt the old dormitory system, and in 
lieu thereof, have established "Students' Homes," capable 
of accomodating a limited number of boarders, and each 
placed in charge of a Christian 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 several 
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 per- 
mitted to room at the cottages without special permission 
from the President. 

MEMORIAL COTTAGES. 

The friends of the late John A. Ellis, of the Missis- 
sippi Conference, and the Rev. J. H. Brooks, of the North 
Mississippi Conference, have built two cottages for the 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 47 

accommodation of students. These homes are named 
respectively the John A. Ellis Cottage, and the J. H. 
Brooks Cottag-e. 

Scholarships 

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 Jeffer- 
son Davis Scholarship (established by Mrs. Annie Davis 
Gunning), and the Peebles Scholarship (established by 
Mrs. N. P. McPherson). 

College Mails 

All correspondence intended for students at the Col- 
lege 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. 

Election of Classes and Courses 

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 permis- 
sion of the President and the Professor in his department. 

Examinations 

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

There is a tendency among students to withdraw just 
before or in the midst of the June examinations. This 
results in a loss to the student, for examinations are more 
than a test of knowledge. They are an educational instru- 
ment for teaching method, promptitude, self-reliance; for 
training in accuracy, and for developing in the student the 
power of concentration of attention and readiness in the 
shaping and arrangement of thought. Examinations will 
not be given in advance of the set time. No student who 
leaves College before the completion of his examinations 
will be admitted to the next higher class until he has 
submitted himself to the prescribed tests. 



48 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

Reports 

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

Discipline 

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 unwilling to submit to reasonable, 
wholesome government are not desired, and w^ill not be 
retained. 

Certificates of Good Membership 

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

Prizes 

Prizes are annually awarded for excellence in: 

1. Oratory. The J. B. Ligon Medal and the Oscar 
Kearney Andrews Medal. 

2. Reading the Sacred Scriptures. The Gunning 
Medal. 

3. Declamation. The Millsaps Medal. 

Candidates for Admission 

Applicants for admission must report to the Presi- 
dent as soon as possible after their arrival, and secure 
board at some place approved by the College authorities. 
Except in cases where special permission is granted 
students to board in the cottages or in town, they wiil 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 Tuesda}^, that they may be 
examined and classed before the opening day, Wednesday, 
October 3. 

Entrance Examinations 

Examinations for those applying for admission into 
Millsaps College will be held October 2-3. See calendar, 
on page 2. See detailed statement as to entrance require- 
ments, page 20. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 49 

Athletics 

It has been the unvarying policy of the College to dis- 
courage 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 stu- 
dents have erected and equipped a commodious gymnasium. 
A trained instructor has charge of daily classes in gym- 
nastic 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 mem- 
ber of the Faculty is president of this association. 

Religious Instruction 

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

The Young Men's Christian Association holds weekly 
meetings, and prayer meetings are regularly conducted by 
the students. These agencies keep up a healthy spiritual 
interest, and at the same time train the young men in 
active Christian work. The Y. M. C. A. occupies an 
attractive and commodious hall on the first floor of the 
main building. All students are required to attend church 
at least once every Sunday, and are expected to be present 
at the Sunday school. 

Public Lectures 

With the view of promoting general culture among 
the students, and to furnish them pleasant and profitable^ 
entertainment, occasional lectures are delivered in the 
College Chapel by distinguished speakers. 



Expenses — Literary Department 

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: 



50 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 



FIRST TERM. 

Tuition (payable in advance) $ 15 00 

Incidental fee (payable in advance) 5 00 

Library fee (payable in advance) 1 00 

$ 21 00 

SECOND TERItl. 

Tuition (payable in advance) $ 15 00 

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

Students preparing- for the w^ork 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 fees. 

BOARD in "Students' Homes" and good families can 
be had at $12 per month, including lodging and lights. 
Students are expected to furnish their own fuel, but if 
they prefer, it will be supplied at a cost of $5.00 for the 
session. 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 month. 

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

We are not unmindful, however, of the fact that there 
are hundreds of worthy young men, rich in mental and 
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 institutions. Millsaps (Col- 
lege 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 $7 per month. Our facilities for 
accommodating this class of students have been enlarged. 

In addition to the Tuition and Incidental Fees students 
in Chemistry will be charged a Laboratory fee of $5; stu- 
dents in Physics, $3; students on graduation will be re- 
quired to pay a diploma fee of $5. 

Tuition in the Law Department, $50.
