The Several Departments of the College 


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


B. A. Degree — The Bachelor of Arts course offers special 
instruction in the departments of Latin and Greek, 
with an option on a Modern Language. 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 ap- 
proved examination in English, Latin, Greek, and 

B. S. Degree — The Bachelor of Science course offers 
special work in Chemistry, Physics, and Mathematics. 
Instead of Greek and partly of Latin, French and 
German are studied. In order to be allowed to enter 
upon the B. S. Course, the applicant must stand an 
approved examination in English, Mathematics, and 

Ph. B. Degree — The Bachelor of Philosophy course offers 
great freedom of election. In order to be allowed to 
enter upon the Ph. B. course, the applicant must 
stand an approved examination in English and Math- 

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 coUeg-iate instruction offers work look- 
ing towards the Master's Deg-ree. Applicants for the M. 
A. or M. S. Degree will be required to elect three courses 
of study, not more than two of which may be in the same 
school or under the same professor. The principal sub- 
ject 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 receivingaBachelor's 
Degree, spend at least one year at Millsaps College engaged 
in graduate study. In most cases non-resident study dur- 
ing 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 re- 
quired 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 m 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, or Astronomy. His second 
minor must be m a school in w^hich he has already 
finished the full course for the Bachelor's Degree. 


Entrance Examinations 

The 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 pnpils admitted on trial without examination, 
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. Latent 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 Cassar'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. 


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


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); Grammar (Goodwin ; History (Fyffe's 

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- 
tinuous passages for translation as soon as practicable, 
and for this purpose selections 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, written exercises be made an essential part of each 
day's work. During the second )^ear 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, treatment. 


II. Mathematics — For admission to the Freshman 
Class in Mathematics, a thorough knowledge of Arithme- 
tic, of Algebra to simultaneous quadratic equations, 
and of one Book of Geometry is required. The 
only suggestion here offered to teachers of these sub- 
jects is that there be joined to systematic and thorough 
teaching a judicious system of examinations. Such exam- 
inations help to better methods of study, and tend to 
remove unreasonable dread of entrance examinations. 
The student making the best average grade in Freshman 
Mathematics during the session of 1900-1901, was prepared 
for College in the Kosciusko High School. 

III. 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 he must be acquainted with 
the elementary facts of practical rhetoric. He will be 
required to write a short composition — correct in spellmg, 
punctuation and grammar — on a subject chosen from the 
books assigned for reading. 

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 
Baskerville and Sewell's Grammar. Composition and 
Rhetoric: Genung's Outlines of Rhetoric, or Butler^'s 
School English. 

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. We shall expect 
preparation on the books given below. 


1901 — George Eliot's Silas Marner; Pope's Translation of 
the Iliad (Books I, VI, XXII and XXIV); The Sir 
Roger de Coverley Papers in'the Spectator ; Goldsmith 's 
Vicar of Wakefield; Scott's Ivanhoe; Shakespeare's 
Merchant of Venice; Cooper's Last of the Mohicans; 
Tennyson's Princess; Coleridge's Rime of the Ancient 

1902 — George Eliot's Silas Marner; Pope's Translation of 
the Iliad (Books I, VI, XXII and XXIV); The Sir 


Roger de Coverley Papersin the Spectator; Goldsmith's 
Vicar of Wakefield; Scott's Ivanhoe; Shakespeare's 
Merchant of Venice; Cooper's last of the Mohicans; 
Tennyson's Princess; Coleridge's Rime of the Ancient 

1903 and 1904 — Same requirements as in 1902. 


1901— Shakepeare's Macbeth; Milton's L'Allegro, II Pen- 
seroso, Comus and Lycidas; Burke's Speech on Con- 
ciliation with America; Macauley's Essays on Addison 
and Milton. 

1902, 1903 and 1904— Same requirements as in 1901. 

All the books on these lists may be gotten in single 
copies, well edited, from Longmans, Green & Co., New 
York; Leach, Shewell & Co., Boston; and Ginn & Co., 


The departments comprising the Course of Instruction 

I. The School of Philosophy and Biblical Instruction. 
II. 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 English. 
VII. The School of History. 
VIII. The School of Modern Lansfuaofes. 

1. The School of Philosophy and Bibiicallln- 


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: 


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

Throughout the 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 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 EnglishBible and Steele's Outlines of Bible Study 
will be used as text-books in connection with the Depart- 
ment of Biblical Instruction. 

Cotirse Leadmg to the blaster's Degree. 

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


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 
v/ill 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 Xenophon. The forms 
are carefully reviewed, the systematic study of the syntax 
is begun, and the importanee 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- 


The main object of the course outlined for the Sopho- 
more Class is to read the texts selected with some appre- 
ciation of their value as works of art. To this end the 
class is first put in possession of the literary and histori- 
cal setting of each selection by a required course of paral- 
lel reading, supplemented by informal lectures. The 
attempt 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 ap- 
preciation of the classics as literature. Reading at sight, 
therefore, forms a not unimportant part of the work of the 
class room, while portions of the texts are, from time to 
time, required to be turned, in writing, into the best Eng- 
lish 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 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, 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 
uiEneid 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 run- 
ning commentary on the customs and institutions of the 
time. His Epistles challenge a critical and historical exam- 
ination of his views on literature, and invite a considera- 
tion of his philosophic reflections as the expression of the 
maturer thoughts and higher aspirations of an enlightened 

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 Mastej-'s Degree, 

sTwo 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 ex- 
clusively 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 follows of the tests to be read and of the works of 
reference to be used in connection therew^ith : 

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

Grammaire Comparee du Grec et du Latin (Henry), 
fifth edition, or the translation of the second edition; 
History of Greece (Abbott); History of Rome 

II. In the Course in Literature: A. Latin: Roman 
Satire (Lucilius, Horace, Persius and Juvenal); The 
Roman Satura (Nettleship); Roman Literature (Crutt- 
well); 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 and 
Reisch); Greek Literature (Jevons); Greek Poetry 

III. In the Course of Epigraphy: A. Lati?i: An intro- 
troduction to theStudy of Latin Inscriptions (Egbert); 
Cours d'Epigraphie Latine (Cagnat); Historical Latin 
Inscriptions (Rushforth); Exempla Inscriptionum 
Latinarum ^Wilmanns). B. Greek: An introduc- 
tion to Greek Epigraphy (Robertson); Grammatik 
der Attischen Inschriften (Meisterhans); Greek 
Historical Inscriptions (Hicks); The Dialects of 
Greece (Smith); Delectus Inscriptionum Gra^carum 

Of the works here enumerated several are required 
only in part. The candidate is expected, for example to 
have a general acquaintance with Doerpfield'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. 

111. The School of Chemistry and Physics. 


The rooms given up to the study of these subjects are 
modern both in size and convenience, and occupy the whole 
lower floor of Webster Science Hall. The recitation room 
and physical laboratory open into a dark room for photog-- 
raphy 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 audi- 
torium forty by sixty feet is obtainable for public scientific 
entertainments. The chemical laboratory opens conven- 
iently into a small fuming room durside of the building so 
that vapors may not pass from one room to the other, and 
is also connected with the storeroom over which an assis- 
tant presides during laboratory hours. Gas, water, expe- 
rimenttables, hoods and pneumatic troughs are to be found 
in convenient places. 

The course in this department consists of three years 
of chemistry and two of physics. One year of each study 
is required of candidates for the A. B. degree, while B. S. 
students are required in addition to take a second year of 
chemistry. Those in the Ph. B. course are required only 
to study one year of physics. The department employs 
an assistant in chemistry and one in physics. 

CHEivnsTRY — This subject is laugh t by recitations and 
by 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 laboratory 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 

The Sophomore course consists per v^^eek of two hours' 
recitation, and one period in the laboratory experimenting- 
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 

The Junior (A) course occupies two hours a week in 
the recitation room and one period in the laboratory. Or- 
ganic chemistry, especially in its relations to medicine, is 
thoroughly studied. 

The Junior (B) course is intended to be at once a con- 
tinuation of the work of the Sophomore year and an intro- 
duction to that of the Senior. Qualitative Analysis is not 
confined entirely to unthinking test-tube exercise, but is 
the subject of regular quizzes. Each year some phase of 
advanced chemistry will be taught, theoretical, ignorganic 
or physical. The course extends through one hour of 
recitation and one period laboratory work. 

The Seniors spend one period weekly throughout the 
year upon the quantitative analysis of drinking water, fer- 
tilizers, soils and ores. A special room is fitted up for this 

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 ques- 
tion and suggest, and in other ways to stimulate thought- 

Physics — The Junior Year, required of all students 
before graduation, consists of two hours recitation and 


one afternoon in the laborator}^ every week. The physical 
laboratory will soon be equipped for effective work. All 
experiments are carefully performed by the students 
themselves. The mental side of laboratorywork isstressed 
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 re- 
quired. In addition, a satisfactory examination must be 
passed upon one of the following reading courses; 

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

Physics — Peddie's Physics, Thompson's Electricity 
and Magnetism, Cajori's History of Physics, Glazebrook's 
Heat and Lierht. 

IV. The School of Biolog-y and Geology. 


One of the front rooms on the lower floor of Webster 
Science Hall is occupied by this department. The 
Museum contains about 300 minerals collected from various 
parts of the world, 200 specimens of rocks presented by 
the United States Geological Survey, a fine cabinet of 300 
minerals and rocks presented by the Woman's College of 
Baltimore, and a fine collection of Mississippi rocks and 
fossils. The excellence of the latter is yearly increased by 
donations from friends of the college. 

Seniors, except those applying for the Ph. B. degree, 
are required to study geology. Biology is elective. Each 
class recites twice a week. In the case of the latter science 
it is aimed to enhance the interest of the subject by micro- 
scopic 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 survey- 
ing. The college is fortunate in being located in the midst 
of a region that is quite varied in geological character. 
Occasionally the Faculty grants a class a week's leave of 
absence on trips to more distant points. 

Courses Leading to the Master^ z Degree. 

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

Biology — William's Biological Geology, 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, Le Conte's 
Elements of Geology, Hilgard's Geology of Mississippi. 

V. The School of Mathematics and As- 


The general aim is to have the work of the department 
brought within such limits, and made so systematic and 
thorough as to secure to the student 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 ap- 
plication of the Lnowledge acquired, or mental dicipline 
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 

Algebra and Geometry are the studies of the Fresh- 
man year. 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 analy- 
sis and reasoning. 

The value of Geometry in promoting, when properly 
studied and taught, de^initeness of conception, precision 


and directness of statement, and correctness of deduction 
is well known. 

The student will be aided in forming correct geomet- 
rical conceptions and in gaining an insight into the true 
spirit and methods of geometrical reasoning. Weekly 
original exercises will be required. 

The required studies of the Sophomore year are Trig- 
onometry, both Plane and Spherical, and Plane Analytic 
Geometry of the straight line, the circle, the parabola, the 
ellipse, and the hyperbola. A course in plane surveying 
is offered as an elective. 

Junior Course (A) embraces the Differential and Inte- 
gral Calculus. The logical rigor of the Calculus, as well 
as the efficiency, brevity and comprehensiveness of its 
methods are carefully investigated. This course is re- 
quired for the B. S. degree. 

Junior Course (B) will embrace a fuller course In 
Analytic Geometry than could be given in the Sophomore 
year, and a brief course in Determinants and the Theory 
of Equations. 

Mechanics and Astronomy are taught in the Senior 
year. The course in Astronomy will be known as Course 
(A) and that in Mechanics as Course (B). 

Course (A). 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 give 
a clear and accurate presentation of leading astronomical 
facts, principles, and methods. 

Course (B). Parallel with a course in Astronomy, a 
course in Theoretical Mechanics is offered to those who 
are acquainted with the Calculus. 

Courses Leading to the Maste7-''s Degree. 

Courses in Mathematics, Mechanics, or Astronomy 
will be arranged for applicants for the Master's Degree. 
The preference of the applicant for particular lines of 
work will be duly considered in arranging these courses. 
The following major in Mathematics for the M. S. Degree 
has been given : 

(1) Differential Calculus (Williamson). 

(2) Integral Calculus (Williamson). 

(3) Differential Equations (Murray). 

(4) History and Philosophy of Mathematics. 


The following minor in Astronomy for the M. S. De- 
gree has been given : 

(1) Godfray's Astronomy. 

(2) Herschell's Outlines. Part IL 

(3) History of Astronomy. 

VI. The School of English. 


The work of the Freshman year will be pursued with 
two purposes in view. It will be an aim, first, through 
compositions and exercises, through criticisms and lec- 
tures, through a study of the principles and forms of good 
composition, to give the student a writing command of 
English, to equip him for writing good prose with proper 
regard for unity, proportion, and coherence in paragraphs 
and in the whole composition. In the second place, selec- 
tions from English poetry will be studied in class four 
times a w^eek with the purpose mainly of developing lit- 
erary appreciation in the student; so, these poems will be 
studied in their absolute literary character rather than 
with reference to the authors, or to their relation to liter- 
ature in general. Parallel 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 selec- 
tions from Tennyson and from Browning in recitation and 
as parallel work. 

In the fall term of the Junior year, Course (A), Anglo- 
Saxon will be studied with the primary puipose of giving 
the student an introductory study of the history of the 
English language. In the sprmg term Shakespeare will 
be studied in class and as parallel. 

In Course (B) of the Junior year, the origin and growth 

. of the English novel will be studied. Cross's "The De- 

. relopment of the English Novel" will be used as a text, 

but more time and attention will be given to the reading, 

reviewing, and class-discussion of great, representative 

, English novels. In the spring term a study of recent and 


of current writers in American literature will be made 
with the purpose of giving- the student a live interest in 
present literary forces and conditions. The work in this 
course will be done mainly in the library, special attention 
being given to periodical literature. 

In the fall term of the Senior year the class will make 
a study of the Aug-ustan age of English literature, giving 
special attention to Pope, Swift, and Addison. Supple- 
mentary to this course the class will study the principles 
and art of prose composition, using Wendell's "English 
Composition" as a text. The spring term will be given to 
the study of the prose writers of the Victorian age with 
special reference to Ruskin, Arnold and Newman. 

Courses Leading to the Mastej-^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 philology 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. 

Vn. The School of History. 


In the outline of courses leading to degrees the text- 
books used in the work in History are enumerated. The 
College Library is well equipped with historical w^orks and 
boos of refe rence, and extensive reading therein, with re- 
ports on assigned topics, wdll be required of the student. 

The College authorities have recently added the 
Mac Coun historical charts to the equipment of the Depart- 
ment of History, and these will serve to illuminate the im- 
pressions of the changes from era to era, already gained 
by the student from his reading. 

For the present the courses in History will be chiefly 
concerned with American historical topics. In the Junior 
year American political histor}' will be studied, special at- 
tention being given to the periods between 1765 and 1889. 
In the Senior year the institutions and Constitution of the 
United States will be taken up, an edition of Bryce's Amer- 


ican Commonwealth being used as text, with special 
studies in the various lines of development of our country. 
In both these courses the student will be required to rely 
upon himself as much as possible, and will be encouraged 
to develop his historical judgment and his ability to corre- 
late facts and events. 

VIII. The School of Modern Languages. 


A course extending through two years is offered in 
both French and German. The aim of the courses is to 
give the student a mastery of the fundamental principles 
of the languages, a correct pronunciation, and an elemen- 
tary acquaintance with the literature. 

The first year in each language is devoted to the study 
of Grammar, with constant drill in elementary composi- 
tion and the translation of simple sent-ences into the lan- 
guage which is being studied. There will be daily prac- 
tice in pronunciation. In the second term a reader will be 
taken up, and by copious reading the acquisition of a vocab- 
ulary and the application of principles already learned wdll 
be encouraged. A great deal of composition will be re- 
quired during the second term. 

In the second year of French the student w411 con- 
tinue the study of Grammar; as much as is proper, how- 
ever, the minor details of Grammar will be subordinated, 
and the languages studied from a literary standpoint. 
The reading will be chiefly from masterpieces of modern 
French literature. Practice in sight reading, and weekly 
exercises in composition will be given. The class room 
work will be supplemented by parallel reading, and re- 
ports on assigned topics in French literature will be called 
for from time to time. 

The second year's work in German will be similar in 
character to the second year's work in French. The class- 
room reading and the parallel will be chiefly from Goethe 
and Schiller, whose lives will be studied in connection with 
their work. 



The Law School 

The Faculty 

William Belton Murrah, D. D., LL. D., President of 
the College. 

Edward Mayes, LL. D., Dean and Professor; for 
fourteen-and-a-half years Professor of Law in the State 

Albert H. Whitfield, LL.D. Professor; Chief Justice 
of the Supreme Court ;f or three-and-a-half years Professor 
of Law in the State Univer3it3^ 

William R. Harper, Esq. Professor. 

The work of the school will be distributed between 
these instructors as follows: 

1. — Professor Mayes: the Law of Real Property; 
Equity Jurisprudence; Equity Pleading and Practice. 

2. — Professor Whitfield: the Law of Evidence; Crimi- 
nal Law; Criminal Procedure; Law of Corporations; Con- 
stitutional Law; Federal Courts, Jurisdiction and Practice; 
Conflict of Laws. 

3. — Professor Harper: the Law of Pleading and Prac- 
tice; Personal Property; Commercial Law; Contracts; 
Torts; Statute Law. 

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 next session, the doors of this institution 
should be opened for the students of law, and Professor 


Edward Mayes was eng-aged 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 re- 
spectable 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 
thoroug'hly established. He had already secured the val- 
uable 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 af- 
terwards obtained, Judge J. A. P. Campbell, Ex-Chief Jus- 
tice of the Supreme Court; Hon. Frank Johnston, Ex-At- 
torney-General; Hon. S. S. Calhoon, Ex-Circuit Juda[e, 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 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. We 
are now closing the fifth annual session of our Law School. 
We point with pride to the results. We now have more 
than fifty graduates; and in all the four years not one can- 
didate presented to the Chancery Court for license has 

The nature of the examination passed, being held by 
the Chancellor in his ofiicial character, and the examina- 
tion 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 those who may contemplate becoming our 
patrons, to accept any statement of our own. The find- 
ing and the statement are those of the Judicial Depart- 
ment 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 b<^ 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 in 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 
instruction to the students. Here also are located courts 
of all kinds known in the State, embracing not only the or- 
dinary 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 cases in actual litigation, from the lowest tribu- 
nal to the highest; and observe in their practical operation 
the nice distinction between the State and Federal juris- 
diction and practice. Here also is located the extensive 
and valuable State Law Library, unequaled in the State, 
the privileges of which each student may enjoy without 
cost. Here, too, where the Legislature convenes every 
second year, the student has an opportunity, without ab- 
senting himself from his school, to witness the delibera- 
tions 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 legislation. 

Applicants for admission 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. 

The curriculum of the Junior class will embrace 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 


althoug-h he shall never have read any law before coming 
to us, if he will apply himself with reasonable fidelity, can 
g-o before the Chancellor, even at the expiration of his 
Junior year, with a certainty of success. 

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. 
No 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 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 way. 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, viz: (1) The Law of Real property; (2) The Law 
of Personal Property; (3) The Law of Pleading and Evi- 
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 assurance 
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. There- 
fore 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 advance- 
ment 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 :

Millsaps Colleg-e 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 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 $100,000, and sev- 
eral partially endowed scholarships. The buildings and 
the grounds are worth $70,000 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 $10,G00. 


Jackson, the capital of the State, and the seat of the 
College, is easily accessible by five lines of railway. 
Fourteen passenger trains arrive and depart daily. 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 difhcult 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 10,000, 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 


The Library has commodious quarters for alcoves 
and a reading room in Webster Science Hall. It is a 




matter of great gratification that the College, so early in 
its history, has such a large and valuable collection of 
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 generously 
contributed. In addition to his other munificent gifts, 
Major R. W. Millsaps has made many valuable contribu- 
tions to the Library. 


Mrs. J. R. Bingham, of Carrollton, Miss., has given 
$1,000.00 to endow the Martha A. Turner Library of Eng- 
lish and American Literature. The fund is invested and 
the annual interest used in purchasing books in this special 

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 accommodating 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 wnich 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. 



The friends of the late John A. Ellis, of the Missis- 
sippi Conference, and Rev. J. H. Brooks, of the North Mis- 
sippi Conference, have built two cottages for the accomo- 
dation of students. These homes are named respec- 
tively, the John A. Ellis Cottage, and the J. H. Brooks 


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 (established by Mrs. Annie Davis Gun- 
ning), 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 Millhaps 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 themseves, 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 per- 
mission of the President and the Professor in his de- 


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 examinatons 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 arranging 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 sub- 
mitted himself to the prescribed tests. 

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 unwilling to submit to reasonable, 
^wholesome government are not desired and will not be re- 

Certificate of Good Membership 

Candidates for admission are required to give satis- 
factory evidence of good, moral character, and if the can- 
didate 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 Andrews medal. 

2. Reading the Sacred Scriptures. The Gunning 

3. Declamation. The Millsaps medal. 

Candidates for Admission 

Applicants for admission must report to the Presi- 
dent and to the Secretary as soon as possible after their 
^arrival, and secure board at some place approved by the 


College authorities. Except in cases where special per- 
mission 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 stu- 
dents should be present on Monday and Tuesday, that 
they may be examined and classed before the opening day, 
Wednesday, October 2. 

Entrance Examinations 

Examinations for those applying for admission into 
Millsaps College will be held October 1-2. See calendar, 
on page 2. See detailed statement as to entrance require- 
ments, page 17. 


With the help of friends, the students have equipped 
a commodious gymnasium. A trained instructor has 
charge of daily classes in gymnastic exercises. The 
annual spring Field Day gives opportunity for public con- 
tests 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 presi- 
dent 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— Literarary Department 

Tuition for full scholastic year $ 30 00 

Incidental fee 5 GO 

Library fee 1 00 

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


Tuition (payable in advance) $ 15 00 

Incidental fee (payable in advance) 5 00 

Library fee (payable in advance) 1 00 

$ 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 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 m 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 
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 '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 $7 per month. Our facilities for 
accommodating this class of students have been enlarged. 

In addition to the Tuition and Incidental Fees students 
in Laboratory Work will be charged a fee of $5; students 
on graduation will be required to pay a diploma fee of $5. 

Tuition in the Law Department, $50. 




The main object of this Department is to prepare 
students for the Freshman class of the Colleg-e. The 
lack at present of good training schools in our State makes 
the need for such a department imperative. To students 
who find it necessary to leave home in order to fit them- 
selves for collegfe, 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 
facihties they need for bringing up these studies. 


No student will be admitted into this department who 
is under 12 years of age. For entrance into First Year 
Preparatory Class, the pupil must be able to read well, 
and must display a fair knowledge of the rudiments of 
English Grammar, Geography, and Arithmetic. In other 
words he must be familiar with the leading facts in geog- 
raphy, particularly that of Europe and America; should 
be prepared to solve intelligently examples in Grammar 
School Arithmetic to Powers and Roots, and in English 
Grammar, should know well the parts of speech and their 
modification, and the construction and analysis of simple 

Applicants for 'admission into the Second Year Class 
will be expected to have completed Geography, United 
States History, High School Arithmetic, Algebra through 
fractions, and Intermediate Grammar. In case Latin is 
studied the [candidate will be examined on Collar and 
Daniel's First Latin Book, or its equivalent. As the transi- 
tion from disconnected sentences to Ccesar would be too 
abrupt for most students, selections from Viri Romse are 
read in class during the last quarter of the first year, in 
connection with the First Latin Book. It is therefore 
recommended that students preparing to enter the Ceesar 


class read at least fifty pages in this or some equivalent 

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

In the second term of the second year the study of 
practical rhetoric is begun. The student is, at this point, 
drilled in the correction of exercises in false syntax, and 
is taught to distinguish the principal figures of speech. 
These exercises are supplemented by compositions on 
familiar subjects. 

The course in English is designed not only to teach 
the student to write and speak with grammatical correct- 
ness, 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 ex- 
ception of Latin and Greek. Physical Geography and 
Civil Government are not required of those taking Greek. 
In the work of the Department, thoroughness is at all times 
insisted upon. 

In the second year a short course in Science is offered; 
so that the work of the Department covers all that is 
required for a first grade teacher's certificate in the pub- 
lic 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 addi- 
tion of Book-keeping. Special attention will be given also 
to Penmanship, Practical Composition, and Commercial 

Those who purpose taking this course should corres- 
pond with the President or with the Headmaster of the
