The charter of Millsaps College, which was granted February 21, 1890, reads as follows: An Act to incorporate Millsaps College. Section 1. Be it enacted by the Legislature of the State of Mississippi, That John J. Wheat, Samuel M. Thames, Thomas J. Newell and Rufus M. Standifer, of the North Mis- sissippi Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, and Gawin D. Shands, Da\'id L. Sweatman, James B. Streater, and John Trice, lay members of said Church within bounds of said Conference, and Thomas L. MeUen, Warren C. Black, Alexander F. Watkins and Charles G. Andrews, members of the Mississippi Conference of said Church, and Marion M. Evans, Luther Sexton, William L. Nugent, and Reuben W. Millsaps, of Jackson, lay members of said Church within the bounds of said Mississippi Conference, and Bishop Charles B. Galloway, be and they are hereby constituted a body corporate and politic by and under the name and style of MiUsaps College, and by that name they and their successors may sue and be sued, plead and be impleaded, contract and be contracted with, and have a common seal and break the same at pleasure, and may accept donations of real and personal property for the benefit of the College hereafter to be established by them, and contributions of money or negotiable securities of every kind in aid of the endowment of such CoUege; and may confer degrees and give certificates of scholarship and make by-laws for the government of said College and its affairs, as well as for their government, and do and perform all other acts for the benefit of said institution and the promotion of its welfare that are not repugnant to the Constitution and Laws of this State or of the United States, subject, however, to the approval of the said two Conferences. Section 2. As soon as convenient after the passage of this Act, the persons named in the first section thereof shall meet 14 MILLSAPS COLLEGE in the City of Jackson, in this State and organize by acceptance of the charter and the election of Bishop Charles B. Galloway as their permanent President and of such other persons as they may determine to fill the offices of Vice President, Sec- retary and Treasurer, and shall prescribe the duties, powers and terms of office of all said officers, except as to the term of their said President, who shall hold office during life or good behavior, or so long as he may be physically able to discharge his duties. They shall also select by lot from the lay and clerical Trustees from each of said Conferences, one-half who shall be Trustees of said College for three years and until their suc- cessors are elected' and the other half not so selected shall remain in office for the term of six years and until their suc- cessors are chosen as hereinafter mentioned. Upon the death, resignation or removal of said Galloway, or his permanent physical disability to discharge the duties of his office, the said Trustees may elect their President and prescribe his duties, powers and term of office. Section 3. That the said Trustees shall before the meet- ing of said Conferences next before the expiration of the term of office of any of their number notify the Secretary of said Conferences thereof, and the vacancies shall be filled by said Conferences in such way and at such time as they may de- termine, and the persons so elected shall succeed to the office, place, jurisdiction and powers of the Trustees whose terms of office have expired. And the said Corporation and the CoUege established by it shall be subject to the visitorial powers of said Conferences at all times, and the said College, its property and effects shall be the property of said Church under the special patronage of said Conferences. Section 4. That the said Trustees, when organized, as hereinbefore directed, shall be known by the corporate name set out in the first section of this Act, and all money, promissory notes and evidences of debt heretofore collected under the direction of said Conferences for said College shall be turned MILLS APS COLLEGE 15 over to and receipted for by them in their said corporate name, and the payee of all such notes and evidences of debt shall endorse and assign the same to the corporation herein provided for, which shall thereafter be vested with the full, legal title thereto, and authorized to sue for and collect the same. The said corporation shall have the power to select any appropriate town, city, or other place in this State at which to establish said College, and to purchase grounds not to exceed one hundred acres as a building site and campus therefor, and erect thereon such building, dormitories, and halls as they may think expedient and proper to subserve the purposes of their organization and the best interests of said institution, and they may invite propositions from any city or town or individual in the State for such grounds, and may accept do- nations or grants of land for the site of said institution. Section 5. That the lands or grounds not to exceed one hundred acres used by the corporation as a site and campus for said College, and the buildings, dormitories and halls thereon erected, and the endowment fund contributed to said College shall be exempt from all State, County and Municipal taxation so long as the said College shall be kept open and be maintained for the purposes contemplated by this Act and no longer. Section 6. That the cost of education shall as far ae practicable be reduced by said corporation to the lowest point consistent with the efficient operation of said College, and to this end reports shall be made to the said Conferences from year to year, and their advice in that behalf taken, and every reasonable effort shall be made to bring a collegiate education within the reach and abihty of the poorer classes of the State. Section 7. That this Act take effect and be in force from and after its passage. The College has its origin in the general poUcy of the Methodist Church to maintain institutions under its own control for higher learning in the Arts and Sciences. 16 MILLSAPS COLLEGE At the annual session of the Mississippi Conference in the City of Vicksburg on December 7, in the year 1888, the following resolutions were adopted by a large majority of the Conference: "Resolved, 1. That a College for males under the auspices and control of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, ought to be estabhshed at some central and accessible point in the State of Mississippi. "2. That a committee of three laymen and three preach- ers be appointed to confer with a hke committee to be appointed by the North Mississippi Conference to formulate plans and to receive offers of donations of lands, buildings, or money for that purpose, and to report to the next session of this Conference." In accordance with this action the President of the Conference, Bishop R. K. Hargrove, appointed the following Committee: Rev. T. L. Mellen, Rev. W. C. Black, Rev. A. F. Watkins, Major R. W. Mill- saps, Col. W. L. Nugent and Dr. Luther Sexton. On December 12, 1888, the North Mississippi Conference met in Starkville, Mississippi, Bishop C. B. Galloway presiding. The Rev. T. L. Mellen appeared and reported the action taken by the Mississippi Conference. The following transcript from the North Mississippi Conference Journal gives the response made by that body: "Resolved, 1. That a CoUege for the education of boys and young men should be established in the State of Mississippi under the auspices of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South. "2. That a committee of three laymen and three ministers be appointed to confer with a like committee already appointed by the Mississippi Conference." MILLS APS COLLEGE 17 The following committee was accordingly ap- pointed: Rev. J. J. Wlieat, Rev. S. M. Thames, Rev. T. J. Newell, Hon. G. D. Shands, Capt. D. L. Sweatman and Mr. J. B. Streater. To the action of these Conferences we may trace the direct origin of the College. The joint commission constituted by the action summarized above met in the City of Jackson in Jan- uary, 1889. The Rev. Dr. J. J. ^ATieat was called to the chair. In stating the purpose of the meeting he made a stiiTing appeal in behalf of the proposition to establish a Methodist College in Mississippi for the education of young men. In response to this earnest appeal Major R. W. Millsaps, a member of the conunission, proposed to give S50,000 to endow the institution, provided the Methodists of Mississippi would give a sum equal to this amount for said purpose. This proposition was enthusiastically approved, and after a plan of procedure was adopted, Bishop Charles B. Galloway was invited to conduct a campaign in the interest of the proposed endowment fund. Under the direction of this distinguished leader, the most gratifying progress was reported from time to time. The report submitted to the Conferences by the committee in December, 1889, refers to the movement in the following language: "The canvass, on account of the numerous necessitated absences of Bishop Galloway from the State, could not be continuously carried on, but even the partial canvass made, embracing not more than one-fifth of our territory, resulted in the most gratifying and encouraging success. The interest 18 MILLS APS COLLEGE awakened in the enterprise has extended beyond the limits of our own Church and is felt by every denomination of Christians, and by every section of the State. It is safe to say that say that no effort of Methodism has ever kindled such enthusiasm in our State or evoked such liberal offerings to the Lord. The fact has been demonstrated that the Church is profoundly convinced that the College is an absolute necessity.^' The report continues: "So high is the appreciation of the value of the proposed institution, that numerous towns in the State have entered into earnest competition to secure the location of the College within the limits of their respective borders, offering from $10,000 to S36,000, and from twenty to eighty acres of land." In December, 1889, the Rev. A. F. Wat kins, a member of the Mississippi Conference, was appointed a special agent to co-operate with Bishop Galloway in all matters pertaining to the endowment of the proposed College. As the work of raising the sum designated in the original proposition progressed, and S25,000 had been collected. Major Millsaps, in the year 1890, paid $25,000 into the College treasury. In December, 1892, the Rev. J. W. Chambers was appointed agent for the College and on December 30, 1893, he reported that the full amount had been collected to meet the terms of Major Millsaps' prop- osition, and thereupon $25,000 were immediately paid by Major Millsaps to the Executive Committee, and the following resolution was adopted: "Resolved, That the Executive Committee return our most heartfelt thanks to Major R. W. Millsaps for his second gift of $25,000, this day turned over to us. For his princely liberahty and unfaltering interest in the great enterprise so MILLS APS COLLEGE 19 happily and successfully inaugurated, the Church and State owe him a large debt of gratitude." The Conferences having provided for a Board of Trustees, the joint commission dissolved in Jan- uary, 1890. This Board, to which was referred the matter of organizing the College, was composed of the following: Bishop Charles B. Gallow^\y, President. Rev. J. J. Wheat, D. D., Rev. W. C. Black, D. D., Rev. S. M. Thames, Rev. T. L. Mellen, Rev. T. J. Newell, Rev. A. F. Watkins, Rev. C. G. Andrews, D. D., Rev. R. M. Standifer, Hon. G. D. Shands, Maj. R. W. Millsaps, Capt. D. L. Sweatman, Col. W. L. Nugent, Mr. J. B. Streater, Dr. Luther Sexton, Mr. John Trice, Hon. M. M. Evans. After the Board organized under the charter, the question of locating the College was considered with great care. The Board met repeatedly to con- sider the offers made by different towns, and finally on May 20, 1891, while in session in Winona, Mis- sissippi, decided to locate the College in Jackson, the capital of the State. The citizens of Jackson contributed S21,000 for grounds and buildings, and to this sum Major Millsaps added §15,000. Plans for a commodious main building were immediately pro- cured, grounds were purchased and in a comparatively short time buildings were in process of erection. When it became evident that everything would soon be in readiness for formally opening the College 20 MILLSAPS COLLEGE for the reception of students, the Board of Trustees, at a meeting held in Jackson, April 28, 1892, began the work of organizing a faculty of instruction. The Rev. W. B. Murrah was elected president. Many apphcations were considered for professorships, and Mr. N. A. Patillo was elected Professor of Math- ematics, and Mr. W. L. Weber was elected Professor of the Enghsh Language and Literature. At the time of his election. Professor Patillo was doing post graduate work in the Johns Hopkins University of Baltimore. Professor Weber was the acting Professor of English at the Southwestern University, Georgetown, Texas, when he was by this action called to Millsaps College. The department of Mental and Moral Philosophy was established, and President Murrah took charge of this department. • At a subsequent meeting of the Board of Trustees held July 13, 1892, Mr. G. C. Swearingen was elected Professor of Latin and Greek, and the Rev. M. M. Black was elected Principal of the Preparatory De- partment. Both of these gentlemen had recently taken post-graduate degrees at the Vanderbilt Uni- versity, Nashville, Tennessee. The necessary buildings having been erected, the first scholastic session began with appropriate cere- monies September 29, 1892. At the regular meeting of the Board of Trustees in June, 1893, Mr. A. M. Muckenfuss was elected Professor of Chemistry and Physics. MILLSAPS COLLEGE 21 In June, 1894, the Rev. AI. M. Black resigned the principalship of the Preparatory Department to enter on the work of the regular pastorate. In re- organizing the department it was made more dis- tinctively a training school with independent juris- diction, and Professor R. S. Ricketts was elected Head Master, with Mr. E. L. Bailey as Assistant Master. The formal estabHshment of the Department of Modem Languages and History was effected by action of the Board of Trustees in June, 1897, and Professor J. P. Hanner was elected to fill the chair thus created. Work, however, had been offered in these subjects prior to this time. In 1904, Dr. B. E. Young, who then had charge of the work in History and Modem Languages, re- signed his position to take charge of the work in Romance Languages in Vanderbilt University. The department was then divided, Mr. 0. H. Moore, a graduate of Harvard University being chosen Pro- fessor of Modern Languages, and Mr. J. E. Waimsley taking charge of the work in History and Economics. The organization indicated by this review rep- resents the status of affairs existing at this time, though the personnel of the faculty has been changed in several departments. The remarkable facilities for conducting a Law School in Jackson led to the estabhshment in 1896 of a Law Department. The Hon. Edward Mayes, ex-Chancellor of Mississippi State University, and ZZ MILLS APS COLLEGE for over fourteen years a professor of Law in that institution, was engaged to take the active control of this department. Dr. Mayes has associated with him as active Professors, Judge A. H. Whitfield, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of our State, and Judge Wm. R. Harper, a distinguished member of the Jackson Bar. ... In addition to the buildings first provided con- sisting of the main college building, the President's house, and homes for the accommodation of students, the facilities of the institution were greatly enlarged during the session 1895-96 by the generosity of Major Millsaps in the gift of Webster Science Hall, at a cost of S10,000. In 1901 Mr. Dan A^ James, of Yazoo City, Mississippi, built an observatory for the College, in honor of the memory of his father, Mr. Peter James, and of his brother, Mr. Samuel James, and furnished it with a magnificent telescope, thus enabling us to ofl'er the finest advantages in the study of Astronomy. The evolutionary process through which Millsaps College has passed during the first ten years of its history has developed an ever increasing demand for better dormitory and dining hall facilities. This need was supplied in 1902 by the gift of Major Millsaps of the property formerly known as the Jackson Col- lege. The splendid brick structure thus secured, together with other buildings admirably adapted to college uses enables the institution adequately to meet the demands made upon it. MILLS APS COLLEGE 23" With an endowment of near two hundred thousand dollars and buildings and grounds worth approx- imately one hundred and twenty-five thousand dollars more, it rests on a foundation which guarantees its perpetuity. It has the support of a great religious denomination, yet it is not sectarian in its policy, but numbers among its patrons representatives of all the Christian churches. One of the purposes the College keeps constantly in view is indicated by the following section of the charter: ''The cost of education shall, as far as practicable, be reduced to the lowest point consistent with the efficient oper- ation of said College, and every reasonable effort shall be made to bring collegiate education within the abihty of the poorer classes of the State." 24 MILLS APS COLLEGE The authorities of Millsaps College prefer that applicants for admission into the College should sub- mit themselves to the regular test of an entrance examination. But in case the Principals of Prepar- atory Schools desire to have their pupils admitted on trial without examination, arrangements looking to that end may be had as a result of correspondence with the College authorities. It is essential that students wishing credit for work done in High Schools or Preparatory Schools, should bring written certificates, stating the exact amount of work on which they have passed. The delay incident to writing for these certificates after arriving here would prevent the organization of classes; therefore, all students who do not have their certificates present will be required to stand the entrance ex- aminations. Special attention is called to the following state- ment of requirements for admission: Students are admitted to the College on the system of entrance units, a unit meaning a subject of study pursued in an academy, or high school, through a session of nine months with recitations five times a week the first two years and not less than three times a week the last two j^ears, an average of forty -five minutes being devoted to each recitation. MILLS APS COLLEGE 25 The required entrance units are to be selected from the following list of subjects, to which is attached their value as entrance units: I. English. 3 Units — 1. Higher English Grammar. ^ unit. 2. Elements of Rhetoric and weekly written Compositions. 1 unit. 3. English Literature. H units. The study of English Literature includes the special study of some works and the reading of others, as laid down in the requirements of the Southern and other associations of schools and colleges in the United States, as follows: (a) Reading. — A certain number of books will be set for reading. The candidate will be required to present evidence of a general knowledge of the subject-matter, and to answer simple questions on the lives of the authors. The form of examination will usually be the writing of a paragraph or two on each of several topics, to be chosen by the can- didate from a considerable number — perhaps ten or fifteen — set before him in the examination paper. The treatment of these topics is designed to test the candidate's power of clear and accurate expres- sion, and will call for only a general knowledge of the substance of the books. In place of a part or the whole of this test the candidate may present an exercise book, properly certified by his in- structor, containing compositions or other written work done in connection with the reading of the 26 MILLSAPS COLLEGE books. It is especially recommended that candi- dates whose reading has not been confined to the books set below should avail themselves of this alternative.

Each school of collegiate instruction offers work looking toward the Master's Degree. 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 subject chosen — known as the major course — will be expected to employ one-half the apphcant's time; each of the minor courses, one- quarter of Ms time. It is expected that the applicant for a masters' degree, after receiving a bachelor's degree, spend at least one year at Millsaps College engaged in graduate study. In most cases non-res- ident study, during two or more years will be accepted as the equivalent of one year's resident work. All examinations must be stood in Jackson. Attention is directed to the schedule of degrees following, and to the statement in connection with the account of work done in each department. The courses so announced are major courses; a minor course is ex- pected 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, History, Philosophy, or English. His minor course 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, Bi- ology, Geology, Mathematics, or Astronomy. His second minor must be in a school in which he has already finished the full course for the bachelor's degree. MILLS APS COLLEGE 35 OUTLINE OF DEPARTMENTAL COURSES ACADEMIC CLASSES.

This School embraces three departments: I. Biblical Instruction. 11. Mental Philosophy, Logic, and the History of Philosophy. III. Ethics and Christian Evidences. No entrance requirements are prescribed for the work of this Department. 42 MILLS APS COLLEGE FRESHMAN. The members of the Freshman Class are required to devote one horn* a week to recitation, though they are expected to give a part of every day to the work of preparation. The scope of this Department will be enlarged from time to time as conditions favor such enlargement, but it is not designed that the course shall take the place of the private and devo- tional study of the sacred Scriptures. The English Bible and Steele's Outlines of Bible Study will be used as text -books in connection with the Department of Biblical Instruction. Throughout the School of Pliilosophy text -books and books of references of the most approved char- acter will be used, and the method of instruction will be by lectures, and 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. JUNIOR. An elementary course in Psychology is offered in the Junior year.

The rooms given up to the study of this subject are modem both in size and convenience, and occupy the whole lower floor of Webster Science Hall. One of the laboratories opens into a dark room for photog- raphy, and into a room specially isolated and designed to retain dehcate apparatus. The general 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 store- room. Gas, water, experiment tables, hoods and pneumatic troughs are to be found in convenient places. There is a cellar for gas and electric generators, and for assay and other furnaces. A large lecture room on the second floor is soon to be supphed with modern equipment. The course in this department consists of three years of chemistry, one year being required of can- didates for all degrees, while B. S. students are re- quired in addition to take a second year. The sub- jects are taught by recitations and lectures and work MILLS APS COLLEGE 47 which each student must perform in the laboratory. It is aimed that the laboratories 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 substance under in- spection, but also cultivate a hand careful to the smallest detail, an eye observant of the shghtest phenomenon, and habits of neatness, skill and econ- omy. Each student will be expected to keep accurate notes. 'I^ I; I. (a) Inorganic Chemistry. — This course is designed to give the student a thorough working knowl- edge of general chemistry, including a careful study of fundamental laws of chemistry, the occurrence, properties and preparation of the common elements and their compounds, and a course of chemical calculations. The year's work will be closed with an introductory study of organic chemistry. This course is a prescribed study of the Sophomore class for all degrees, and is a prerequisite to either of the other courses in Chemistry. Lectures and recitations, three hours. (Monday, Wednesday and Friday.) Text-Book — Ne well's Descriptive Chemistry. Reference Books — Remsen, Richter, Holleman. (b) Experimental Chemistry. — This course is given in connection with (a), and each student is assigned the preparation of a number of elements 48 MILLSAPS COLLEGE and compounds, and required to note the de- portment of various substances with reagents. The class each year is given an opportunity to visit certain industrial establishments, as sul- phuric acid plant, phosphate works, and gas works. Laboratory exercises, two hours. (Tuesday.) Text-Book — McPherson& Henderson's Experimental Chemistry. II. (a) Organic Chemistry. — The purpose of this course is to furnish a somewhat comprehensive knowledge of organic chemistry, the instruction being given chiefly by lectures illustrated by experiments. Some attention is given to physi- ological chemistry. Students will be expected to consult various works of reference. This course is required of apphcants for the B. S. de- gree, and is a prescribed study in the Junior year. This course in connection with II (b) will appeal specially to preliminary dental and medical students. Lectures and recitations, two hours. (Tuesday and Wednesday). Text-Book — Organic Chemistry (Remsen). Reference Books — Perkin and Kipping, Richter, HoUeman. (b) 1. Qualitative Analysis. — This course consists in a systematic analysis of simple and compound substances and mixtures, the contents being un- known to the student. It is a prescribed study in the Junior year, and required for the B. S. degree. The work is not confined to mere test- tube exercises, but is the subject of regular MILLSAPS COLLEGE 49 quizzes. The course will extend through the third quarter. Two hours. (Thursday.) Text-Books — Newth, Fresenius. 2. Practical Organic Chemistry. — ^The preceding course will be followed during the last quarter with a course in the preparation and purification of organic substances. Text-Books — Leffman and La Wall, HoUeman, or Remsen. (c) General Chemistry (Advanced Course). — This course is intended to supplement course I (a). Some phase of advanced chemistry — theoretical inorganic, or physical, will be taught. A brief study of historical chemistry will be included. This course is elective in the Junior year, and is designed for those who would know more of chemistry than is possible in the Sophomore year. Students electing this work must also elect II (b). The course will be varied from time to time as may be needed. Lectures and recitations, one hour. (Thursday) Text and Reference Books — Inorganic Chemistry (Remsen, Smith, Holleman), Physical Chemistry (Jones, Walker); History of Chemistry (Venable). III. (a) Organic Chemistry. — A course in advanced organic chemistry, including the preparation of coal-tar products, as dyes, remedies, etc., with a few determinations of vapor density and molec- ular weight. Text-Books — Gattermann, Fischer, Omdorff. 50 MILLS A PS COLLEGE (b) Quantitative Analysis. — A course in gravimetric and volumetric analysis, for which a special laboratory room is furnished with modem desks and apparatus. Text-Books — Ladd, Clowes and Coleman. Reference Books — Fresenius, Sutton, Leach. Both of these courses are given during the Senior year, and are elective for all degrees. Four hours. (Wednesday and Thursday.) Finally, it should be said that in the chemical laboratory text -books will be dispensed with as far as possible. The student will be taught to feel that the substances and apparatus around him are his alphabet. The teacher is constantly on hand to question and suggest, and in other ways to stimulate thoughtfulness. Library copies of Watts' Revised Dictionary, Thorp's Applied Chemistry, Roscoeand Schorlemmer's Treatise, Allen's Commercial Organic Analysis, Journal of the American Chemical Society, and other works, are on hand for reference. In both Junior and Senior courses some laboratory work will be required outside of the regular schedule. A prize of $10 will be given to the student who does the best work in Chemistry during the Junior and Senior years. Class record, laboratory record, and an original paper at the close of the Senior year will each be valued at 33^ per cent. MILLS APS COLLEGE 51 COURSE LEADING TO THE MASTER'S DEGREE. In the post graduate work of this department, 200 hours of laboratory work in the subject chosen are required.

Reading Course — Theoretical Chemistry (Remsen); Physical Chemistry (Jones); Industrial Chemistry (Thorp); Develop- ment of Organic Chemistry (Schorlemmer) ; History of Chemistry (Meyer); Physiological Chemistry (HalUburton). In addition, a satisfactory examination must be passed on work assigned from the above courses. The courses outhned are for major subjects, and for minors each will be reduced one -half. 52 MILLS A PS COLLEGE IV. THE SCHOOL OF GEOLOGY AND BIOLOGY. PROFESSOR SULLIVAN. C. H. KIRKLAND. A portion of the second 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 rock presented by the United States Geological Survey, a fine cab- inet of 300 minerals and rocks presented by the Woman's College of Baltimore, and a fine collection of Mississippi rocks and fossils, all thoroughly indexed. The excellence of the latter is yearly increased by donations from friends of the College, and a collection made by the Senior Class. During the present year several handsome specimen cases have been added to the museum, and larger space provided for this Department. GEOLOGY. I. (a) Mineralogy and Lithologic Geology. — ^This includes a study of mineral species, crystalline forms, chemical composition, occurrence and uses, with a description of the kind and arrange- ment of rock masses. First Term (First half). (b) Physiographic and Dynamic Geology. — ^This por- tion of the course embraces the study of phys- iographic features and processes, the mechanical and chemical effects of the atmosphere, water, heat, and of life. Special attention will be given to some phase of the subject, as the work of glaciers, or volcanoes. First Term (second half). • ■ • MILLS APS COLLEGE ■ 53 (c) Historical Geology. — In addition to general his- torical geology some attention will be given to economic products and to paleontology. Second Term. This course is a prescribed study in the Senior year for the A. B. or B. S. degree. The college museum and the private museum of the head of the Depart- ment afford minerals and fossils for class study. 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 surveying. 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 week's leave of absence on trips to more distant points. In the last month of the year Hilgard's Geology of Mississippi and annual Reports of the Smithsonian Institution and of the U. S. Geological Survey are used with the class. Lectures and recitations, two hours. (Wednes- day and Friday.) Text- Books— Introduction to Geology (Scott); Text-Book of Geology (Dana). Reference Books— Manual of Geology (Dana); Text Book of Geology (Chamberlain and Salisbury); Minerals (Dana); Reports; Physiography (Salisbury), BIOLOGY. I. (a) General Biology. — An elective course is offered in the Junior year. It is aimed to enhance the 54 MILLS A PS COLLEGE value of the course by microscopic work of a general character. First Term. Two hours. (b) Botany and Zoology. — A lecture course on se- lected subjects, with special reference to the study of medicine and Pharmacy. This work is also important as preparatory to the courses in Geology. Second term. Two hours. This course is elective for all degrees. Text-Books — Lessons in Biology (Parker); Principles of Botany (Bergen and Davis). Reference Books — General Biology (Sedgwick and Wilson); Briefer Course in Zoology (Packard). COURSES LEADING TO THE MASTER'S DEGREE. Graduate work as a minor subject is offered in both geology and biology, but for the present no reg- ular field or laboratory work will be required. An examination must be passed upon a course of reading which for each subject is as follows: Geology — Chamberlain and Salisbury's Text-book of Geology; Tarr's Economic Geology of the United States; Williams's Elements of Crystallography; Hilgard's Geology of Mis- sissippi. Selected articles in geological reports. Biology — Sedgwick and Wilson's General Biology; Wilsons' Cell in Development and Inheritance; Haddon's study of Man, Jordan's Bacteriology. MILLSAPS COLLEGE 55 V. THE SCHOOL OF PHYSICS AND ASTRONOMY PROFESSOR SULLIVAN. PROFESSOR J. A. MOORE. The course in this Department consists of two years of physics and one year of astronomy. Besides a general lecture room on the second floor of Science Hall, a room provided with laboratory tables, and supplied with water, gas, and electricity, is devoted to experimental physics. An observatory supplied with a six-inch equatorial telescope affords means for practical work in astronomy. PHYSICS. I. (a) General Physics. — This course embraces a study of the principles of mechanics, sound, heat, light, magnetism, and electricity, and is a re- quired study in the Junior year for all degrees. The work will be conducted by lectures, recita- tions, and experiments before the class. Two hours. (Monday and Tuesday.) Text-Book — Ganot's General Physics (Atkinson). (b) Experimental Physics. — A course in laboratory experiments accompanied by lectures will be re- quired in connection with the course in General Physics. A separate room is furnished with work tables, and each student provided with apparatus for performing carefully selected experiments. Two hours. (Wednesday.) Text-Book — Laboratory Course (Milliken and Gale). 56 MILLSAPS COLLEGE ■ ■ II. Advanced Physics. — This course will be varied as the needs suggest, and is elective in the Senior year for all degrees. It is designed that this class especially shall keep in touch with the scientific progress of the day. Two hours. ASTRONOMY. The course embodies a general survey of Astronom- ical facts and prinicples, and is required in the Senior year for all degrees. Frequent use of the six-inch equatorial telescope of the James Observatory adds interest to the study. A brief course in the history of Astronomy will be re- quired. Two hours. Text- Books — Manual of Astronomy (Young); History of Astron- omy (Berry). COURSES LEADING TO THE MASTER'S DEGREE. In Physics the courses offered are measurements in (a) mechanics, heat, and electricity; (b) General Physics, including a special study of some selected phase of the subject, Text-Books — Peddie's Physics, Thompson's Electricity and Magnetism, Cajori's History of Physics, Glazebrook's Heat and Light, Stewart's Conservation of Energy, Wat- son's Physics. In Astronomy some practical work in the deter- mination of time and latitude will be required in addition to a reading course. Text-Books — Astronomy (as a Science of Observation) (God- fray); Mechanical Astronomy (Herschell's Outlines, Part MILLS A PS COLLEGE 57 2); History of Astronomy (Gierke); Practical Astronomy (Doolittle). In addition, a satisfactory examination must be passed on work assigned from the above courses. The courses outKned are for major subjects, and for minors each will be reduced one-half. VI. THE SCHOOL OF HISTORY. PROFESSOR WALMSLEY. The purpose of the courses in History is rather the training of the mind of the student for critical historical judgment than the accumulation of facts. It is believed that there is no line of work in which more rigidly scientific training is possible than in the work in Historical and Social Science, and it is certain that there is none in which the knowledge acquired is of more immediate or more practical use. Text books are not taught as infallible authorities; in fact, many of the text-books contain statements from which the head of the Department dissents in toto, but it is thought that these very books may be of especial service. Under the guidance of the Professor the students are taught to reserve their own judgment until they are confident of the trustworthiness of the author. All students applying for admission to any of the classes in History will be required to show a satisfactory knowledge of General History and Amer- 58 MILLS APS COLLEGE ican History. The entrance examination is made more rigid in Ancient History than in Modem, inas- much as the emphasis in the college classes is thrown on Modern History. FRESHMAN. In the Freshman year an outline of the history of Europe is given, and the stress is laid on the period since the Barbarian Invasion, the period to which the modem nations trace their beginning. Written reports on assigned topics form an important part of the work of this year. Two hours. Text-Books — Harding's Essentials of Mediaeval and Modem History; Seebohm's Era of Protestant Reformation; Mc- Carthy's Epoch of Reform. JUNIOR. This course is devoted to a careful study of one of the three periods in American political and con- stitutional history indicated below. A large amount of special parallel work is required in this class. Three hours. Text-Books — I. Woodbum's Lecky's American Revolution; Fiske's Critical Period of American History; McLaughlin's Confederation and Constitution; Gordy's Political History of United States, Vols. I and II; Hinsdale's Old North-west; Ogg's Opening of the Mississippi. II. Burgess's Middle Period; Smith's Parties and Slav- ery; Macy's Political Parties in United States; Curry's Southern States of American Union; Chadwick's Causes of Civil War (omitted in 1908-09). III. Burgess's Reconstruction and the Constitution; Dunning's Essays on Civil War and Reconstruction; Gar- ner's Reconstruction in Mississippi. (Omitted in 1908-09). MILLSAPS COLLEGE 59 SENIOR. In the Senior year two courses are offered. The first, which is required, is given to PoHtical Science, and after studying our own government as it is, takes c.p the outKnes of the existing governments in Europe and lays the foundation for inteUigent political crit- icism. Three hours. The work of the second course, which is elective for all degrees, is either a study of the elementary principles of International Law and of their applica- tion in current questions of world poHtics, or an intensive study of the politics of Europe from the time of the French Revolution to the present. Two hours. Text-Books (A) — Bryce's American Commonwealth; Moran's English Government; Wilson's State. Text-Books (B) — I. Davis' Elements of International Law; Reinsch's Colonial Government; Reinsch's Colonial Ad- ministration; Foster's Practice of Diplomacy; Class Lec- tures. (Omitted in 1908-1909). II. Andrews's Historical Development of Modem Europe; Hassall's Balance of Power; Stephen's Revolutionary Europe. The Ralph Humphreys Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution offers a medal each year to the Junior Class. This is given to the member of the Class who prepares the best paper on some subject connected with the American Revolution. The subject for 1908-09 wiU be, "The English Side of the American Revolution." 60 MILLS APS COLLEGE In the Senior Class a set of books is given by the Head of the Department for the best paper on some subject in Pohtical Science. This paper in 1908-08 will be written on "The Theoretical and the Actual Power of the Senate." COURSES LEADING TO THE MASTER'S DEGREE. Graduate work, both as a major and as a minor subject is offered in History. The major course is a study of the moral forces in the Middle Ages. The following books are required in addition to such parallel as may be assigned : Duruy's Middle Ages; Bryce's Holy Roman Empire; Fisher's History of the Reformation; Parts of May's History of Democracy in Europe and of Draper's Intellectual De- velopment of Europe; Lecky's History of European Morals; Buckle's History of Civilization in England; Guizot's History of Civilization. The minor course is devoted to a study of Eng- land in the Eighteenth Century. Selected Chapters of Lecky's England in the Eighteenths Century; Ashton's Social Life in time of Queen Anne;; Biographies of Eighteenth Century Statesmen. VII. THE SCHOOL OF ECONOMICS AND SOCIOLOGY. PROFESSOE WALMSLEY. The work in Economics, which is required of all Juniors, is given for about half the year to theoret- MI LIS APS COLLEGE 6 ical economics, and an attempt is made to set forth clearly the present condition of economic thought. This is followed by a more practical course, in which some phase of economic teaching is developed more at length. During the past year the nature and function of money was studied. Text-Books — Seligman's Principles of Economics; Dewey's Fi- nancial History of the United States; Sparling's Industrial Organization. In the Senior year a course is given in Sociology, in which, after a theoretical course in the study of Society as a scientific phenomenon, some of the prob- lems of our present social organization are studied in detail. Text-Books — Gidding's Elements of Sociology; Wright's Prac- tical Sociology; Kidd's Principles of Western Civilization. COURSES LEADING TO THE MASTER'S DEGREE. In neither Economics nor Sociology is major work given, but a minor course is given in each. The work in both courses will be largely historical, showing how the modem teaching in each subject is derived from the earlier modes of thought. In economics a study of Adam Smith's work and its development will be followed by a discussion of some of the new and still unsettled theories in this field of work. In Sociology an attempt will be made to outline the field of work, and to discuss the more prominent theories of society. 62 MILLSAPS COLLEGE VIII. DEPARTMENT OF LATIN AND GREEK. PKOFESSOR SWARTZ. MR. COLLINS. It is believed that for the average under-graduate the study of Latin and Greek subserves in a marked degree the primary object of education. This primary object is to give one such mastery over one's own mind as to enable him to focus his thoughts with intentness and at will upon problems of intrinsic difficulty. The aim of this department will be so to shape the work as to endeavor to accomplish this result. To this end thoroughness and accuracy in all the courses will be insisted upon so that the solution of the linguistic problems which arise may be effected upon the basis of knowledge, and not upon that of conjecture. The character of the work of each year is clearly shown by the following outline. The aim of the work of the Freshman and Soph- omore classes is to train the student toward reading Greek and Latin with ease and accuracy. To this end the authors read will serve as a basis for an accurate and thorough review of forms, syntax, and case re- lations, and to the acquisition of a vocabulary. A hterary appreciation of the authors studied will be sought and their influence upon modern literature emphazised. Both Freshmen and Sophomore Classes meet three times a week. MILLS APS COLLEGE 63 FRESHMAN. Latin. Text-Books — Virgil's Aeneid (six books); Livy, Books I, XXI XXII; Grammar (Bemiett's); The Latin Verb (Swartz); Dactylic Hexameter; Prose Composition; Gayley's Classic ■ MythjB. GREEK. Text-Books — Lysias (Selected Orations); Homer (three book) of the Iliad or four of the Odyssey); Xenophon, Agesilaus; Study of the Epic forms; Prosody; Prose Composition; Grammar (Goodwnn); Gayley's Classic Myths; Literature (Jebb). SOPHOMORE. Latin. Text-Books — Horace, Odes and Epodes (Bennett); Satires and Epistles (Kirkland); Cicero, de Amicitia; Phny's Letters; Prose Composition; Literature (Wilkins); The Private Life of the Romans, Preston and Dodge. Greek. Text-Books — Plato (the Dialogue varies from year to year — the Protagoras is offered for 1909); Herodotus, Books VI and VII; Euripides, Medea or Alcestis; Meters; Grammar and Composition. Collateral reading. JUNIOR. In the Junior and Senior years the effort will be continually made to instil into the minds of the students an enthusiasm for Greek and Latin literature: to show him that the literature of antiquity is not a dead, impassive something, but that in it there pulsates a fiery glow and genial warmth unequaled 64 MILLSAPS COLLEGE in the literature of modern times. The authors read will be expected, each in his several way, to contrib- ute his quota towards the accomplishment of this result. Latin. Text-Books — Tacitus, Agricola and Germania; Terence, Phor- mio; Plautus, Captivi; Juvenal; Collateral Reading, bearing on the times of Tacitus and Juvenal. Prose Composition; Meter of Comedy. Greek. Attic Orators — History of their times. Text-Books — Tarbell's Philippics of Demosthenes; Jebb's Attic Orators; Tyler's Olynthiacs of Demosthenes. The Drama — Its History and Development; Sophocles' Oedipus Rex, or Antigone; Aeschylus' Prometheus Vinctus. Syntax — Prose Composition. SENIOR. Latin. This course, being elective, will be arranged to suit the needs of the applicants. For 1909, a course in Latin History will be offered, based upon Caesar, Sallust, Livy, Tacitus, and Sue- tonius. Greek. History — Selections from Thucydides and Herodotus. Texts — Morris' Thucydides I; Merriam's Herodotus. Comedy and Lyric Poetry — Study of the structure of Comedy; Meter. Texts — Humphrey's Clouds; Starke's Wasps; Felton's Birds; Tyler's Lyric Poets. Note. — In all the courses there will be parallel reading of Greek texts; also collateral reading in English. Sight reading will be practiced in all courses. MI LIS A PS COLLEGE 65 FOR GRADUATES. The course leading to the M. A. degree will be varied from year to year to suit the needs of the class. For the year 1908-1909, the following courses are suggested: Text-Books. Latin (A) — A Study of Roman Elegy, based upon Catullus, Tibullus and Propertius. (B) — Satire, based upon a study of Lucilius, Horace, Persius and Juvenal. In either course a thesis will be required. Greek (A) — The Drama with a critical and complete study of Sophocles. (B) — Epic Poetry. In this course the entire Iliad or Odyssey will be read. In either course a thesis will be required upon some assigned subject of research. COURSE IN BIBLE GREEK. As many of our students go out into the active work of the ministry without having the advantages of a Theological Seminary, it has been thought advis- able to offer a course in Bible Greek. The course as outhned on page 38 is offered as a substitute for the Junior Course in Classic Greek. Since a thorough appreciation of Hellenistic Greek from a linguistic standpoint can not be had without an accurate knowledge of Classic Greek, students will be discouraged from taking this course who have et) MILLSAPS COLLEGE not finished the Sophomore year in Classic Greek. Furthermore no student will be encouraged to take this course in Bible Greek who is not looking to the ministry as his hfe work, for this course is in no way intended as a substitute for more difficult Greek. The method of instruction will be to find out the exact meaning of the passage in hand by a close scru- tiny of the words, by a comparison of the words with their uses in other passages, and by a discussion of their meaning in the classic period. Ancient customs and manners will be laid under requisition to ex- plain all kindred references in the text; in short, every- thing will be done to elucidate the passage under discussion^ and to bring out its meaning linguistic- ally. The course is not designed to be theological. Two courses will be offered: (a) The Gospels. (b) The letters of Paul and Acts. Text-Books — Burton's Moods and Tenses; Westcott and Hort's Text of the Greek Bible; Gardiner's Principles of Textxial Criticism; Meyer's Commentary on Acts; Coneybeare and Howson's Life of Paul; Davis' The Story of the Nazarene; Matthew's History of New Testament Times in Palestine. Note. — It is the purpose of the Professor each year to deliver to the students a lecture on some topic connected with the work of his Department. Some of the topics discussed in the past have been: "The Eruption of Vesuvius in 79 A. D.", "Why the MILLSAPS COLLEGE 67 Classics are Shunned", "Why They Should be Studied". In 1908-1909 the subject of the lecture win be: "Euripides: His Art and Modernity." IX. THE SCHOOL OF ENGLISH. PROFESSOR KERN. MISS RICKETTS. MISS SPANN. FRESHMAN. During the first term the work is in prose com- position. It is the aim of the course to give the stu- dent such a command of English as will enable him to write clear, correct prose, with proper regard for unity, order, and proportion in the paragraph and in the whole composition. Selections from Ameri- can literature are studied during the last term with the purpose of developing literary appreciation and the love of good literature. Especial attention is given to Poe and Hawthorne. Daily and weekly themes are required throughout the year. Four hours. Text-Books — Fovuidations of Rhetoric (Hill); Selections from Poe (Gambrill); Poe's Prose Tales; Hawthorne's Twice- Told Tales (Lathrop); Irving's Tales of a Traveller (Krapp); Longfellow's Tales of a Wayside Inn. SOPHOMORE. In the Sophomore year a general outline course in English literature is given, preparatory to the study of special periods and topics. Parallel with the de- 68 MILLSAPS COLLEGE velopment of the literature select poems and essays are studied with the view of applying the principles of the text -book and lecture. Harold, Westward Ho, and Henry Esmond are read as illustrative of the customs and manners of the Old English period, the age of Elizabeth, and the Augustan Age. In the spring term a short course in Shakespeare is given, in which stress is laid upon plot and character de- velopment, and upon methods of interpretation. Monthly exercises in short story writing are required throughout the year. Three hours. Text-Books — A First View of English Literature (Moody and Lovett); English Poetry (Manly); Lamb's Essays of Elia; Stevenson's Essays (Phelps); Bulwer-Lytton's Harold; Elingsley's Westward Ho (Innes); Thackeray's Henry Es- mond; Richard II (Herford); Henry IV, Part 1 (Moorman); Hamlet (Chambers); As You Like It (Smith). JUNIOR. During the first half year the essentials of Old English phonology and grammar are taught by the means of text -books and lectures, and selections from the prose and poetry are read. Brooke's English Literature from the Beginning to the Norman Con- quest is assigned as parallel reading. During the remainder of the year the work is in Chaucer; the Prologue and four Tales are read in class, and parallel reading is assigned. Throughout the course the history of the language is presented briefly by means of lectures. Three hours. MILLS APS COLLEGE 69 Text-Books — Old English Grammar (Smith); English Liter- ature from the Beginning to the Norman Conquest (Brooke); Chaucer's Prologue, Knight's Tale, Nun's Priest's Tale (Mather); The Tale of the Man of La we, The Pardoneres Tale, etc. (Skeat); The Poetry of Chaucer (Root). SENIOR. The autumn term is occupied with the study of Tennyson. The best and most characteristic of the shorter poems are read in class, especial attention being paid to poetic interpretation. Benson's Life of Lord Tennyson and a detailed study of Harold con- stitute the parallel work. After Christmas the Idylls of the King are studied. Tennyson's dependence upon his sources and the relation of the separate Idylls to each other will be considered, but the chief emphasis will be placed upon the conflict between Sense and Soul. The spring term is spent in gaining a general estimate of Browning's method and work as a poet as manifested in his shorter poems. Three essays are required during the year. Two hours. Text-Books— The Works of Tennyson (Globe); Alfred Tenny- son (Benson); Select Poems of Browning (Burton). COURSES LEADING TO THE MASTER'S DEGREE. For the session of 1908-09 three courses are of- fered, two in English Literature and one in Old English. English may be elected as either a major or a minor subject; the outlines given below are for the minor courses; for the major courses additional work will be assigned and a thesis will be required. 70 MILLS APS COLLEGE I. Literature — (a) Tennyson (see the course for the Senior year) . (b) Browning — Poetical Works of Robert Brown- ing (Globe); The Poetry of Robert Browning (Brooke); Robert Browning: Life and Letters (Orr). IL Old English— (a) Beowulf — Beowulf (Heyne-Socin) ; Grammar of Old English (Sie vers -Cook) ; History of Early English Literature (Brooke). XL THE SCHOOL OF MODERN LANGUAGES *PROFESSOE O. H. MOOEE. ACTING-PROFESSOR H. T. MOORE. The regular college work in Modern Languages begins with second year French and German. The beginning year in each of these languages is taught in the preparatory department, but the first year of either French or German will be given college credit for those students who do not offer the work for entrance. FRESHMAN. The aim of the Freshman year will be to develop the student in ability to read French and German fluently, to pronounce it accurately, to understand it * On leave of Absence. MILLSAPS COLLEGE 71 when pronounced or spoken, and to acquire a fair knowledge of grammatical principles. To this end the recitations will be conducted as follows: One- fourth of each recitation will consist of black-board exercises on the daily assignment in grammar; following this the students will be asked to translate the lesson in reading from hearing it pronounced. All trans- lation will be done with books closed. Thus the baneful practice of "cribbing," — a practice so common among students, and one which at the same time in- evitably cuts short all hope of hnguistic progress — will be forever barred. Lastly, the reading, after ha\ing been translated, will be carefully pronounced by the students, and careful attention will be given to this branch of training. Effort will be made to read during the year about 400 pages of German and 700 pages of French. Text-Books. German — Baeon's German Grammar; Moser's Der Bibliothekar; Bavmibach's Der Schwiegersohn; Schiller's Der Neffe als Onkel; Werner's Heimatklang; Frejtag's Die Joumalisten. French — Ctiardenars Complete French Course; Labiche and Delacour's Les Petits Oiseaux; Lazare's Contes et Nouvelles; Sand's La Mare au Diable; Hugo's La Chute; House's Three French Comedies; Feval's La Fee des Greves; La- biche and ilartin's Le Voyage de Monsieur Perrichon. SOPHOMORE. The general method of the Sophomore work will be the same as that of the preceding year, but less attention will be given to the grammar, and much 72 MILLSAPS COLLEGE more to the reading. The aim will be to acquaint the student as largely as possible with the masters of German and French literature. Not less than 1,000 pages of German and 1,500 pages of French will be covered during the year. Text-Books. German — Schiller's Wilhelm Tell; Lessing's Nathan der Weise; Goethe's Faust; Egmont; Hermann und Dorothea; Keller's Bilder aus der Deutschen Litteratur, French — Moliere's Le Misanthrope, L'Avare, Les Pr^cieuses Ridicules; Corneille's Le Cid; Raeine's Athalie; Warren's Histoire de La Litterature Francaise; French Prose of the XVII Century; Dumas Les Trois Mousquetaires. JUNIOR. A fourth year course in German will be given as a Junior elective, or as Sophomore work for those students who offer two years of German for entrance. This will be a rapid reading course in German fiction and history. 1,600 pages will be covered and special attention will be given to conversation. MILLSAPS COLLEGE 73 DEPARTMENT OF PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION. THE LAW SCHOOL THE FACULTY William Belton Murrah, D. D., LL. D,, Presi- dent of the College. Edward Mayes, LL. D., Dean, for fourteen and a half years Professor of Law in the State Uni- versity. Albert H. Whitfietd, LL. D., Professor; Chief Justice in the Supreme Court; for three and a half years Professor of Law in the State University. William R. Harper, Esq., Professor. The work of the school will be distributed between the instructors as follows: 1. Professor Whitfield— The Law of Evidence; Crim- inal Law; Criminal Procedure; Law of Corpora- tions; Constitutional Law; Federal Courts, Juris- diction and Practice; Conflict of Laws; the Law of Real Property. 2. Professor Harper— The Law of Pleading and Prac- tice, Personal Property, Commercial Law, Con- tracts, Torts, Statute Law; Equity Jurisprudence; Equity Pleading; Practice. 74 MI LIS APS COLLEGE 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 Depart- ment should be assured, a Department of Professional Education, embodying 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 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 fourteen years of experience 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 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. 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, Chan- cellor, presiding over the Chancery Court, for exam- • • • MILLS A PS COLLEGE 75 ination 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 answers were, as law directs, forwarded by the Chancellor to the Supreme Judges. Every applicant passed this ordeal successfully and received his license. We are now closing the twelfth annual session of our Law School, and no student has failed in any year to pass the examination and receive his license. We point with pride to the re- sults. We now have one hundred and seventy-five graduates. The nature of the examination passed, being held by the Chancellor in his official character, puts beyond question or cavil the genuineness of that result. We do not ask of our patrons or those who contemplate becoming our patrons to accept any statement 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 Chancellors. This is more than can be said for any other young lawyers in the State. None others have such a double approval as a part of their regular course. The location of the school at Jackson enables the managers 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 ar- 76 MILLSAPS COLLEGE guments will furnish an invaluable series of object lessons and an unfailing fountain of instruction to the students. Here also are located courts of all kinds known in the State, embracing not only the ordinary Municipal and the Circuit and Chancery Courts, but also the United States Court and the Su- preme Court. Thus the observant student may follow the history and course of cases in actual litigation from the lower tribunal to the highest, and observe in their practical operation the nice distinction between the State and Federal jurisdiction and practice. Here also is located the extensive and valuable State Law Library, unequalled 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 absenting himself from his school, to witness the deliberations of that body and observe the passage of the laws which, in after Mfe, 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 required. Students may enter the Senior class upon satisfactory 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. MILLSAPS COLLEGE 77 Each student will be required to present satis- factory certificates of good moral character. Each student will be required to pay a tuition fee upon entrance, of fifty dollars, for the session's in- struction. No rebate of this fee will 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 Senior, each comprising forty weeks, five exercises per week. The instruction will consist mainly of daily ex- amination of the students on lessons assigned in stand- ard 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 modified or reversed by recent ad- judications and legislation. The course will be carefully planned and con- ducted so as to meet the requirements of the Mississippi law in respect to the admission of applicants to prac- tice law, by examination before the Chancery Court, and will therefore embrace all the titles prescribed by Law for that examination, viz. : (1) The Law of Real Property; (2) The Law of Personal Property; (3) The 78 MILLS APS COLLEGE Law of Pleading and Evidence; (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 hcense 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 exam- ination for license. Therefore, our course of study is so arranged as fully to meet both of these ends. First: The curriculum of the Junior class will embrace each of the eight subjects on which the apph- cant for hcense 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 reasonable fidelity, can go before the Chancellor at the expiration of his Junior year, with a certainty of success. The preparation of applicants for hcense in one year, will be in short, a specialty of this school. Wlien 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 Hcense before the . MILLSAPS COLLEGE 79 Chancellor, or he may stand his examination before the law professor simply for advancement to the Senior Class if he does not care to stand for license at that time. If he shall be examined before the Chancellor and pass, he will be admitted to the Senior class, of course, and without further examination, in case he shall desire to finish his course with us and take a degree of Bachelor of Lawes. On the other hand, if he prefer to postpone his examination for hcense, 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 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 The Senior Class is required to attend the reci- tations of the Junior Class by way of review, and to be prepared for daily questioning on the daily lessons of the Junior Class. Moot courts will be conducted under the direction of the professor in charge, in which the young men will be carefully instructed and drilled in the practical conduct of cases. 80 MILLSAPS COLLEGE M'^^ILLSAPS COLLEGE is named in honor of ^^J Major R. W. Millsaps, whose munificent gifts ^^^ have made the existence of the institution possible. The College is the property of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, and was organized by the concurrent action of the Mississippi and North Mis- sissippi Conferences. It is not sectarian, however, but numbers among its patrons members of all the Christian denominations. The College has an endowment of $200,000, and several partially endowed scholarships. The build- ings and the grounds are worth §125,000. The first scholastic session began September 29, 1892, and the College has had remarkable prosperity from the beginning. The generous founder. Major Millsaps, by the gift of the Webster Science Hall, at a cost of $10,- 000, and the Jackson College property, at a cost of more than S30,000, has greatly enlarged our facilities. LOCATION. Jackson, the capital of the State, and the seat of the College is easily accessible by five lines of railway. Thirty passenger trains arrive and depart daily. The college is located just north of the city, on a com- manding elevation with perfect drainage, and in a beautiful campus of fifty or more acres. A healthier spot it would be difficult to find within the limits of the State. The location secures all the advantages MILLSAPS COLLEGE 81 of the town and yet supplies all the healthful conditions and immunities of the country. Jackson is a small city of 31,000 with handsome churches and public buildings, and is noted for the refinement and intel- ligence of its people. Its literary, social and rehgious advantages are superior. Bishop Galloway, President of the Board of Trustees, resides here, and his lectures and special sermons deUvered from time to time add greatly to the interest and profit of each session. THE JAMES OBSERVATORY. Millsaps College is prepared to offer the very finest advantages in the study of astronomy. The late Mr. Dan A. James, of Yazoo City, Miss., built an ob- servatory for the College in honor of the memory of his father, Mr. Peter James, and of his brother, IVIr. Samuel James. He also furnished the observatory with a magnificent telescope. LIBRARY. The College authorities have realized from the first that much of the success of the institution depends on its library facilities. It is a matter of great grati- fication that so early in its history the College has secured a large and valuable collection of books. Most of the well selected libraries of the late Dr. C. K. Mar- shall and Rev. W. G. Millsaps, besides many excellent volumes from Ex-Chancellor Edward Mayes, Dr. A. F. Wat kins and others, have been generously contrib- uted. In addition to his other munificent gifts, Major 82 MILLS APS COLLEGE R. W. Millsaps has made valuable contributions to the library. Soon after the founding of the College, Mrs. J. R. Bingham, of Carrollt on, Mississippi, gave $1,000 to endow the Martha A. Turner Library. This money, known as the Turner Fund, has been separately in- vested, and the annual interest used in purchasing books. With the proceeds of the library fee, paid by each student at his matriculation, the reading room is supplied with periodicals. The number of these has been much increased in the last few years, and all of the leading periodicals are now found in the Library. Near the close of the session of 1905-6, Mr. An- drew Carnegie offered to give the College SI 5,000 for a library building if the College authorities would supply an endowment of equal amount. Major Mill- saps added to his many contributions to the College by giving the full amount of the endowment. The new building was completed and formally dedicated with appropriate ceremonies, October 2.Q, 1907. Thein- come from the endowment will allow additions each year to the stock of books and periodicals, and will offer library facilities that are not equaled in the State. LITERARY SOCIETIES. Two large halls have been provided for the Lit- erary Societies organized for the purpose of improve- ment in debate, declamation, composition, and ac- quaintance with the methods of dehberative bodies. MILLSAPS COLLEGE 83 These societies are conducted by the students under constitutions and by-laws of their own framing. They are named, respectively, the Galloway and the Lamar Societies, and contribute greatly to the improvement of their members. BOARDING FACILITIES. We have established "Students' Homes", capable of accommodating a hmited number of boarders, and each placed in charge of a Christian family. These homes, "Asbury Home" and "Williams Home", have each a capacity of from twenty-four to thirty young men. 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 else- where. These cottages form a group of eight build- ings admirably situated on the eastern side of the campus. The rooms are sufficiently large to accom- modate two students each. The room rental per student in the cottages is $9.00 for the session and must be paid as follows: S5.00 at the beginning of the session, and $4.00 the 1st of February. No student will be permitted to room at the cottages without special permission from the President. Memorial Cottages.— The friends of the late Rev. John A. Ellis, of the Mississippi Conference, and the Rev. J. H. Brooks, of the North Mississippi Conference, have built two cottages for the accommodation of students. These Homes are named, respectively, the John A Ellis Cottage, and the J. H. Brooks Cottage. 84 MILLSAPS COLLEGE FOUNDER'S HALL. Through the generosity of Major Millsaps we have recently come into possession of additional valuable property, including a large dormitory building. This supplies the finest facilities for boarding accommoda- itons. The rooms are heated with steam, and are well ventilated — all having outside exposure. Rooms in Founders Hall will cost each student $18.00 per session of nine months, and must be paid as follows: $10.00 on receiving key to room, and $8.00 the 1st of February. Students in Founders Hall are expected to supply their own lights and bed-room furniture. Lights cost very little, and the room furniture can be easily disposed of when they leave College. The man- agement of the Hall is in charge of the Founders Hall Club — J. M. Guinn, Manager. Table board in Founders Hall can be had at $8.00 per month. All of the advantages of the Hall, in- cluding lodging, fires in winter, table board, and lights, will cost only $10.40 per month. Private families in the vicinity of the College ofi'er excellent board to students at moderate cost. 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 Schol- arship, the Peebles Scholarship, established by Mrs. N. McPherson, and the scholarship in Latin and Greek. MILL SAPS COLLEGE 85 The holder of the last named scholarship will be expected to give a portion of his time in assisting the Head of the Department. It is open to graduates of the Junior and Sophomore classes. The Oakley Memorial.— Under the direction of Mrs. J. R. Bingham, of Carrollton, Mississippi, a fund has been raised to establish a memorial in honor of the late Rev. J. S. Oakley, who was for many years an honored member of the North Mississippi Conference. The following Sunday Schools have contributed to this fund : Macon, Black Hawk, Carrollton, Rosedale, Starkville, Water Valley (Wood Street), Winona, Pickens, Durant. COLLEGE MAILS. All correspondence intended for students at the College should be addressed care of Millsaps College. Mails are distributed to students on the campus, there- by avoiding the necessity of personal visits to the city postofiice. TEXT BOOKS. There is an organization among the students which orders text books for the college, and these books may be obtained on the campus at publishers' prices. ELECTION OF CLASSES AND COURSES. Students are allowed some hberty of choice of classes and courses, either by themselves, or their friends, limited to the judgment of the Faculty and by the exigency of classification. A student is not 86 MILLSAPS COLLEGE allowed to withdraw from any class to which he has been assigned without the consent of the Faculty. A request to be allowed to drop a study must be made in writinsr. ^?3' EXAMINATIONS. Written examinations will be held twice a year, and special examinations at other times as the several professors 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 ed- ucational instrument for teaching method, prompti- tude, 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 ad- vance of the set time. No student who leaves College before the completion of his examinations will be ad- mitted to the next higher class until he has submitted himself to the prescribed tests. During the session reports will be sent to the pa- rent or guardian of each student, 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 discip- line will be firm. Obedience to College regulations MILLS APS COLLEGE 87 will be strictly required. Young men unwilling to submit to reasonable, wholesome government are not desired and will not be retained. CERTIFICATES OF GOOD CHARACTER. Candidates for admission are required to give satisfactory 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 Carl J. v. Seutter medal and the Oscar Kearney Andrews medal. 2. Declamation. The Millsaps medal. 3. Essay. The Clark medal. 4. Scholarship. The Oakley Memorial Prize. 5. Essay. The Political Science Prize. 6. Essay. The D. A. R. medal. CANDIDATES FOR ADMISSION. Applicants for admission must report to the President 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 permission is granted students to board in the cottages, or in town, they will be required to board in Founder's Hall, or in private families near the College. New students should be present on Tuesday that they may be examined and classed before the opening day, Wednesday, September 30. 88 MILLS APS COLLEGE ENTRANCE EXAMINATIONS. Examinations for those applying for admission into Millsaps College will be held September 29-30. See calendar on page 2. See detailed statement as to entrance requirements, page 24. ATHLETICS. With the help of friends, the students have equipped a commodious gymnasium. The annual spring Field Day gives an opportunity for public con- tests in all athletic games. There is a student organ- ization, the Millsaps College Athletic Association, which helps to keep up enthusiastic interest in health- ful sports. A member of the Faculty is always an officer of this Association. RELIGIOUS INSTRUCTION. Students will be required to be present at morn- ing worship in the CoUge Chapel. In this daily ser- vice the Faculty and students come together to hear the reading of the Sacred Scriptures and to engage in singing and prayer. THE YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION. Organized shortly after the College was founded, the Young Men's Christian Association has been dominated by the double purpose of leading men to accept Christ and to form such associations as will guard them against the tempations of College life. It places the spiritual above the intellectual and MILLSAPS COLLEGE 89 emphasizes the importance of Christian activity in education. In order to accomphsh its worthy ideal, the Association holds meetings on Friday and Sunday evenings. The services are conducted usually by some one of the students, but occasionally by some member of the Faculty or minister from town. Also in the spring, annual revival services lasting over a week result in renewing enthusiasm and in giving great stimulus to Association work. The Association sends yearly a large delegation to the Southwestern Students' Conference, at Ruston, Louisiana. Since the ten days of the Convention are assiduously devoted to discussing Association work and problems, the delegates always return enthusiastic and zealous for doing Christian service, thus they give new impetus and a lively interest in the King's business. The work of the Association is carried on by tha students; each man has his part to do according to the plan of organization. The President, elected by its members, appoints chairmen of seven committees, each composed of three or more men. It is the duty of the advertising committee to advertise all meetings and secure good attendance. A small hand- book with campus information is distributed at the opening of the session. On the first Friday evening of the College year the Reception Committee provides entertainment for the new students, and this committee also meets all new students as they arrive. At the reception, all are made acquainted with one another. 90 MILLSAPS COLLEGE Each new student is urged by the membership Com- mittee to join the Association. The past session the membership was one hundred and seventeen. The Committee on Finance, whose chairman is the Treasurer of the Association, collects the annual dues ($1.50) and raises funds sufficient for meeting current expenses. The Devotional Committee provides leaders for the meetings. But most important is the Bible Study Committee. The importance of studying the Bible is presented and every student is urged to engage in Systematic Bible work. Daily Bible study is felt to be of incalcu- lable value in Christian hving. The Missionary Com- mittee arranges courses in biographies of Missionaries and in various mission fields. Also the students are trained in systematic living. For several years the Association has aided in the support of a Chinese stu- dent in the Anglo -Chinese College. It is hoped that every student who matriculates in the College will become a member of the Association. PUBLIC LECTURES. With the view of promoting general culture among the students, and to furnish them pleasant and profi- table entertainment, occasional lectures are deUvered 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 MILLS APS COLLEGE 91 A contingent deposit of $2.00 is required of each student boarding in liouses owned by the College on entering the College, to be deposited with the Pres- ident in order to cover any damage that may occur. The whole of this deposit, or any unexpended part thereof, will be refunded on Commencement Day, provided the student has not previously left the Col- lege without permission. The tuition may be paid in two installments, as follows: First payment, S15.00, at the beginning of the session, and the second payment, S15.00, the first of February. The Incidental and Library fees must be paid in full when the student enters. Students preparing for the- work of the ministry in any Christian denomination, and the sons of preach- ers, will have no tuition to pay, but all students will be required to pay the Incidental and Library fees. Board in good famiUes can be had at from S 15.00 to $12.00 per month, including lodging and Ughts. Students are expected to furnish their own fuel, but if they prefer, it will be supplied at a cost of S5.00 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 $11.00 per month. 92 MILLSAPS COLLEGE Ample facilities are provided for board at the above rates. Any student may feel assured that board will not cost him more than $125.00 for the entire session. Tuition in Law Department, $50.00,. Laboratory Fees. — Students pursuing laboratory courses are charged additional fees varying with the Department. In the Chemical Laboratory a fee is required in the nature of a deposit, an account being kept of material used, and unexpended balances being returned to the student at the end of the year. In all Departments; students are chargeable for unnecessary breakages. The Laboratory fees are as follows: Chemistry. $5.00 Physics -• 5.00 Geology _. 1.00 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 93 THE PREPARATORY DEPARTMENT. The main object of this Department is to prepare students for the Freshman Class. The lack at present of good training schools in our State makes the need of such a Department imperative. To students who find it necessary to leave home in order to fit them- selves for college, we offer special advantages. The enlargement of the College Course of Study and the higher standard now fixed for entrance' re- quire of this Department a corresponding increase in the scope of its work. In general this increase amounts to the addition of somewhat more than a year to the work heretofore done. As now constituted our Pre- paratory School covers 14 Carnegie units (see page 24) , so that its graduates will be prepared to enter any college North or South. With this end in view ade- quate equipment will be provided, and not only will a higher grade of work be done but thoroughness will everywhere be more strictly enforced. REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION. No student will be admitted to this Department who is under fourteen years of age. For entrance into the First Year Class the pupil must have com- pleted Geography, United States History (Grammar School Course), English Grammar and High School Arithmetic. 94 MILLSAPS COLLEGE Applicants for admission into the second year Class should have had one year's instruction in Ele- mentary Algebra, Beginner's Latin (Collar & Daniel or its equivalent) and Higher English Grammar. To the Third Year Class those only will be ad- mitted who give satisfactory evidence by written examinations or certificates of recognized affihating High Schools that they have completed properly the work of the first two years as given in the appended table. COURSES OF STUDY. English. — The Course in English is designed not only to teach the student to write and speak with granmiatical correctness, but also to inspire in him a love of good literature. The reading under competent guidance of classics such as are recommended by our General Board of Education can hardly fail to secure this result. Mathematics. — The work in Mathematics is suffic- iently indicated by the appended tabular state- ment. Care will be taken to make the student so thorough in his knowledge of the authors studied that he will be enabled to pursue the higher work of the College with increasing inter- est and power. History. — History will be read with a view to pre- paring the student for the more comprehensive study of the same subjects in College. In ad- MILLS A PS COLLEGE ■ 95 dition, therefore, to drill on facts and the succes- sion of events some attention will be given to the principles involved in the development of civilization during the periods under consideration. Ancient Languages. — There are five regular courses in the Ancient Languages offered in the Depart- ment, three in Latin, and two in Greek. In Latin, four books of Caesar are read in the second Year; the forms are stressed; elementary gram- mar is mastered; a vocabulary is acquired; week- ly exercises are written by the class; the grammar is systematically studied; in short, a foundation is laid for the future accurate study of the language. In the Third Year six orations of Cicero are read, systematic study of the grammar is con- tinued; weekly exercises are written and the student is thoroughly prepared to take up with profit and ease the work of the Freshman Year in College. Greek will be begun in the Second Year of the Pre- paratory Department. White's First Greek Book will be thoroughly mastered. If possible, the last six weeks of the Course will be spent in read- ing a few chapters in the Anabasis. In the Third Year four books of the Anabasis will be read. The method pursued in this Class will be the same as that pursued in the Caesar 96 MILLS A PS COLLEGE Class in Latin; grammar, syntax, exercise work reading, — all making for thoroughness in elemen- tary Greek, and in preparation for College. Modern Languages. — One year of German, and one of French will be offered. In this beginning work the student will be especially drilled on the principles of grammar, and will be required to cover 250 pages of reading in each language. The student may also take for entrance two years of German without any French. In this case he would take Freshman German in his third year of preparatory work. Science. — One year in Science will be given, the first half to Physics, and the last half to Chemistry. The study of the text book will be supplemented by illustrative experiments and an occasional lecture by the Head of the Department of Science in the College . The Department, as reorganized, is prepared to supply the needs of those who can not continue at school till graduation, but desire to take an advanced High School Course of study. It is important, however, that those desiring to do this should, before coming, correspond with the President, or with the Head Master of the De- partment. The following table will exhibit the Course of Study in detail. MILLS APS COLLEGE 97 FIRST YEAR CLASS. HRS.
