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 Mississippi Conference of the Methodist 
Episcopal Church, South, and Gawin D. Shands, David 
L. Sweatman, James B. Streater, and John Trice, lay 
members of said church within bounds of said Confer- 
ence, and Thomas L. Mellen, Warren C. Black, Alexan- 
der 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 Confer- 
ence, and Bishop Charles B. Galloway, be and they are 
hereby constituted a body corporate and politic by and 
under the name and style of ]Millsaps 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 mone}" or negotiable securi- 
ties of every kind in aid of the endoAvment of such Col- 
lege; 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 govern- 
ment, 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. 

Sec. 2. As soon as convenient after the passage of 
this Act, the persons named in the first section thereof 


shall meet 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 Presi- 
dent and of such other persons as they may determine 
to fill the offices of Vice-President, Secretary and Treas- 
urer, 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 
and until their successors are elected, and the other half 
not so selected shall remain in office for the term of six 
years and until their successors are chosen, as herein- 
after 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. 

Sec. 3. That the said Trustees shall, before the 
meeting 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 determine, 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 College 
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. 

Sec. 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 evidence of debt heretofore 
collected under the direction of said Conferences for 


said College shall be turned over to and receipted for 
by them in their said cori)orate name, and the payee 
of all such notes and evidences of debt shall endorse and 
assign the same to the corporation herein jirox idcd for, 
which shall thereafter be vested with llie 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 snid College, and to purchase grounds 
not to excd'd one hundred acres as a building site and 
campus therefor, and erect thereon such buildings, dormi- 
tories, and halls as they may tliink expedient and proper 
to subserve the purposes of their organization and the 
best interests of said institution, and they may invite 
propositions from an}' city or town or individual in the 
State for such grounds, and may accept donations or 
grants of land for the site of said institution. 

Sec. 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 con- 
tributed to said College shall be exempt from all State, 
County and Municipal taxation so long as the said Col- 
lege shall be kept open and maintained for the purpose 
contemplated by this Act, and no longer. 

Sec. 6. That the cost of education shall, as far as 
practicable, be reduced by said corporation to the lowest 
point consistent with the efficient operation of said Col- 
lege, 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 
ability of the poorer classes of the State, 

Sec, 7, That this Act take effect and be in force 
from and after its passage. 

The College has its origin in the general policy of the 
Methodist Church to maintain institutions under its own 
control for higher learning in the Arts and Sciences, 


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 un- 
der the auspices and control of the Methodist 
Episcopal Church, South, ought to be estab- 
lished at some central and accessible point in 
the State of Mississippi. 

"2. That a committee of three laymen and 
three preachers be appointed to confer with a 
like committee to be appointed by the North 
Mississippi Conference to formulate plans and 
to receive offers of donations of lands, build- 
ings, or money for that purpose, and report to 
the next session of this Conference." 

In accordance with this action, the President of the 
Conference, Bishop R. K. Hargrove, appointed the fol- 
lowing committee: Rev. T. L. Mellen, Rev. W. C. Black, 
Rev. A. F. Watkins, Major R. W. Millsaps, Col. W. L. 
Nugent and Dr. Luther Sexton. 

On December 12, 1888, the North Mississippi Confer- 
ence met in Starkville, Mississippi, Bishop C. B. Gallo- 
way 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 responses made by that 
body : 

"Resolved, 1, That a College for the educa- 
tion of boys and young men should be estab- 
lished in the State of Mississippi under the 
auspices of the Methodist Episcopal Church, 

"2. That a committee of three laymen and 
three ministers be appointed to confer with a 
like committee already appointed by the Mis- 
sissippi Conference." 


The following committee was accordingly appointed: 
Rev. J. J. Wheat, Rev. S. M. Thames/ Rev. T. J. 
Newell, Hon. G. D. Sliands, Capt. D. L. Sweatman and 
Mp. J. B. Streater. 

To the action of tlicse Conferences we may trace the 
direct origin of the College. 

The joint commission constituted by the action sum- 
marized above met in the City of Jackson in January, 
1889. The Rev. Dr. J. J. Wheat was called to the 
chair. In stating the purpose of the meeting he made 
a stirring appeal in behalf of the proposition to estab- 
lish a Methodist College in Mississippi for the educa- 
tion of young men. In response to this earnest appeal 
Major R. W. Millsaps, a member of the commission, 
proposed to give $50,000 to endow the institution, pro- 
vided 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 pro- 
cedure was adopted, Bishop Cliarles 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 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 no effort of Methodism has ever 


kindled such enthusiasm in our State or evoked 
such liberal oiFerings to the Lord. The fact 
has been demonstrated that the Church is pro- 
foundly convinced that the College is an abso- 
lute 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 competi- 
tion to secure the location of the College within 
the limits of their respective borders^ offering 
from $10,000 to $36,000, and from twenty to 
eighty acres of land." 

In December, 1889;, the Rev. A. F. Watkins, 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 origi- 
nal proposition progressed, and $25,000 had been col- 
lected. 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' proposition, and 
thereujDon $25,000 were immediately paid by Major Mill- 
saps to the Executive Committee and the following reso- 
lution was adopted: 

"Resolved, That the Executive Committee re- 
turn 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 liber- 
ality and unfaltering interest in the great en- 
terprise so happily and successfully inaugur- 
ated, the Church and State owe him a large debt 
of gratitude." 


The Conferences having provided for a Board of Trus- 
tees, the joint commission dissolved in January, 1890. 
This Board, to which was referred the matter of organ- 
izing the College, was composed of the following: 

Bishop Charles B. Galloway, 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 ques- 
tion of locating the College was considered with great 
care. The Board met repeatedly to consider the offers 
made by different towns, and finally on May 20, 1891^ 
while in session in Winona, Misisssippi, decided to 
locate the College in Jackson, the capital of the State. 
The citizens of Jackson contributed $21,000 for grounds 
and buildings, and to this sum Major Millsaps added 
$15,000. Plans for a commodious main building were 
immediately procured, grounds were purchased and in a 
comparatively short time buildings were in process of 

When it became evident that everything would soon 
be in readiness for formally opening the 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 applications were considered for professorships, 
and Mr. N. A. Patillo was elected Professor of Mathe- 
matics, and Mr. W. L. Weber was elected Professor of 
the English Language and Literature. 

At the time of his election Professor Patillo was doing 
post-graduate work in the Johns Hopkins University of 


Baltimore. Prof. Weber was the acting Professor of 
English at the Southwestern University of Georgetown, 
Texas, when he was by this action called to Millsaps Col- 
lege. The department of Mental and Moral Philosophy 
was established and President Hurrah 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 Depart- 
ment. Both of these gentlemen had recently taken post- 
graduate degrees at the Vanderbilt University, Nashville, 

The necessary buildings having been erected, the first 
scholastic session began with appropriate ceremonies Sep- 
tember 29, 1892. 

At the first meeting of the faculty Professor W. L. 
Weber was elected Secretary, and at the request of the 
President the senior member of the faculty was selected 
as chairman pro tempore. At the commencement of 1910 
the Board of Trustees created the office of Treasurer 
of the Faculty, and chose Dr. M. W. Swartz for this 

At the regular meeting of the Board of Trustees in 
June, 1893, Mr. A. M. Muckenfuss was elected Pro- 
fessor of Chemistry and Physics. 

In June, 1894, the Rev. M. M. Black resigned the 
principalship of the Preparatory Department to enter 
on the work of the regular pastorate. In reorganizing 
the department it was made more distinctively a training 
school with independent jurisdiction, and Professor R. 
S. Ricketts was elected Head Master, with Mr. E. L. 
Bailey as Assistant Master. 

The formal establishment of the Department of His- 
tory and Modern Languages 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 Modern Languages, resigned his 
position to take charge of the work in Romance Lan- 
guages in Vanderbilt University. The department wan 
then divided, Mr. O. H. Moore, a graduate of Harvard 
University, being chosen Professor of Modern Lan- 
guages, and Mr. J. E. Walmsley taking charge of the 
work in History and Economics. 

In I9O8, the chair of Assistant in English and Latin 
in the Preparatory Department was added, and Mr. S. 
G. Noble was elected to this position. 

At the commencement of IQH the Board of Trustees 
created the office of Vice-President and elected Dr. J. 
M. Sullivan to this position. At the same session of the 
Board provision was made for an additional professor 
in Science. Dr. J. M. Sullivan, who had been in charge 
of the work in Chemistry, Physics and Natural History 
since 1902, was made Professor of Chemistry and Geolo- 
gy; the Department of Physics and Biology was created 
and Professor G. L. Harrell was placed in charge of 
that work. 

The organization indicated by this review represents 
the status of affairs existing at this time, though the 
personnel of the faculty has been changed in several 

The remarkable facilities for conducting a Law School 
in Jackson led to the establishment in 1896 of a Law 
Department. The Hon. Edward Mayes, ex-Chancellor 
of Mississippi State University, and 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, of the Supreme Court of our State, and 
Judge Wm. R. Harper, a distinguished member of the 
Jackson Bar. 

At the close of the session of 1 91 0-1 911 the Prepara- 
tory Department was formally separated from the Col- 
lege and erected into a distinct institution under the 


name of the Millsaps Preparatory School. This school 
with its buildings is described in its own catalogue. 

In addition to the buildings first provided^ consisting 
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 ses- 
sion 1895-96 by the generosity of Major Millsaps in the 
gift of Webster Science Hall, at a cost of $10,000. 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 offer the finest 
advantages in the study of Astronomy. 

The evolutionary process through which Millsaps Col- 
lege 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 sup- 
plied in 1902 by the gift of Major Millsaps of the 
property formerly known as the Jackson College, at a 
cost of more than $30,000.00, and subsequently fifty 
acres of land immediately adjoining our campus valued 
at $50,000.00. The splendid brick structure thus se- 
cured, together with other buildings admirably adapted 
to college uses, enables the institution adequately to 
meet the demands made upon it. 

In the year 1906 the General Education Board of 
New York City agreed to contribute from the income 
of the John D. Rockefeller foundation for Higher 
Education, $25,000.00, provided a supplemental sum 
of not less than $75,000.00 should be collected, and 
thus add $100,000.00 to the permanent endowment of 
the College, 

To meet the terms of this offer, a vigorous campaign 
was prosecuted by the Rev. T. W. Lewis, of the North 
Mississippi Conference, who had been duly appointed 
as Financial Agent of the College. 

In 1910 it appeared that $32,279-10 had been col- 
lected for said purpose, and Mr. I. C. Enochs paid in 


$5,000.00, and Maj. II. W. Millsaps, in keeping with 
the generosity that has always characterized him in 
making it possible to improve opportunities which would 
have been lost but for his timely aid, paid the addi- 
tional $37,720.90, thus completing the transaction and 
increasing the endowment by $100,000.00. 

Witli an endowment of over three hundred thousand 
dollars and buildings and grounds worth approximately 
two hundred and fifty 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 consistently in 
view is indicated by the following section of the charter: 
"The cost of education shall, as far as prac- 
ticable, be reduced to the lowest point consistent 
with the efficient operation of said College, and 
every reasonable effort shall be made to bring 
collegiate education within the ability of the 
poorer classes of the State." 








For admission to Millsaps College^ the general con- 
ditions are as follows: 

1. Good Character — As attested by the certificate 
from the school last attended^ or other valid proof. 

2. Adequate Preparation — As shown by the cer- 
tificate of an accredited school^ or an equivalent examina- 

Students are admitted to Millsaps College as: 

1. Full Freshmen. 

2. Conditioned Freshmen. 

3. Special Students. 

For admission as Full Freshman, the candidate must 
offer fourteen units as specified below. Of these, three 
must be in English, two and one-half in Mathematics, 
one in History. Candidates for the degree of Bachelor 
of Arts must offer in addition three units of Latin and 
one in Greek, or French, or German. Candidates for 
the degree of Bachelor of Science must offer four units 
in two foreign languages. (If one of the two languages 
offered is Latin, three units are required therein.) 

For admission as Conditioned Freshman, the candidate 
must offer twelve units, as specified below. Of these 
three must be in English and two and one-half in Mathe- 
matics. Such candidate is conditioned on not more than 
two units, and all conditions should be absolved by the 
close of the second year after initial registration. 

For admission as Special Student, the candidate must 
present adequate proofs of good character and of the 
needful maturity and training. Such students must in all 
cases meet the specific entrance requirements, as pre- 
scribed for the courses elected by them. But it is ex- 
pressly ordered that no conditioned or special student 
shall be recognized as a candidate for any degree from 
Millsaps College unless he shall have completed all 
entrance requirements at least one year before the date 
of graduation. 


The unit in the above estimate means a subject of 
study pursued in an academy or JiigJi school through a 
session of nine montJis with recitations five times a week 
the first two years and not less than three tiines a week 
the last two years, an average of forty-five minutes being 
devoted to each recitation. 


The subjects accepted for admission and their value 
in units are given in tabulated form on the next page. 
Fuller definitions of the units follow immediately after. 
The applicant for admission may enter either by cer- 
tificate or by examination. 

For admission by certificate, the candidate should file 
with the Secretary of the Faculty not later than Septem- 
ber 18th a certificate of preparation, made out on blank 
form furnished by the College. This certificate must 
come from some recognized institution of collegiate rank, 
an accredited high school, or academy. It must bear in 
all cases the signature of the head of the school, must 
specify the character and content of each course offered 
for entrance credit; must give the length of time devoted 
to the course, and must give the candidate's grades in 
percentage. In the scientific courses two hours of labora- 
tory instruction will be counted as the equivalent of one 
hour recitation. Certificate of preparation from private 
tutors will in no case be accepted. Students thus pre- 
pared must in all cases take the entrance examinations. 

For admission by examination, the candidate must 
present himself at the College in September, according 
to dates given in the Program of Entrance Examinations.

MiLLSAPs College is named in honor of Major R. W. 
Millsaps, wliose 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 Mississippi Conferences. It is not sectarian, 
however, but numbers among its patrons members of all 
the Christian denominations. 


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 command- 
ing elevation, with perfect drainage, and in a beautiful 
campus of one hundred or more acres. A healthier 
spot it would be difficult 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 
25,000 inhabitants, with handsome churches and public 
buildings, and is noted for the refinement and intelli- 
gence of its people. Its literary, social and religious 
advantages are superior. 

The College has an endowment of $300,000, and sev- 
eral partially endowed scholarships. The buildings and 
the grounds are worth $225,000. The first scholastic ses- 
sion began September 29, 1892, and the College has had 
remarkable prosperity from the beginning. The gen- 
erous founder, Major Millsaps, by the gift of the Web- 
ster Science Hall, at a cost of $10,000, the Jackson Col- 
lege property at a cost of more than $30,000, and fifty 
acres of land immediately adjoining our campus, has 
greatly enlarged our facilities. 



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 observa- 
tory for the College in honor of the memory of his father, 
Mr. Peter James, and of his brother, Mr. Samuel James. 
He also furnished the observatory with a magnificent 


Near the close of the session of 1905-1906^ Mr. An- 
drew Carnegie offered to give $15,000 for a library build- 
ing if the trustees would supply an endowment of equal 
amount. Major Millsaps added to his many contribu- 
tions by giving the full amount of the endowment. The 
new building was completed and formally dedicated on 
October 26, 1907. With the income from this endow- 
ment, which is applied to the purchase of books and 
periodicals, and the complete A. L. A. card catalogue, 
which has recently been installed, the College is able 
to offer library facilities that are not surpassed in the 
State. During the present session seventy-five periodi- 
cals were received in the reading room and over five 
hundred volumes were added to the shelves. 

In addition to the books thus obtained, the library has 
been so fortunate as to secure most of the well selected 
libraries of the late Dr. C. K. Marshall and Rev. W. G. 
Millsaps, the entire law library of Colonel W. L. Nugent, 
besides many volumes from the libraries of ex-Chancellor 
Edward Mayes, Dr. A. F. Watkins, and Major R. W. 
Millsaps. The Martha A. Turner Fund, founded by 
Mrs. J. R. Bingham, of Carrollton, Mississippi, is used 
for the purchase of books in English literature. The 
students also have full access to the State Library, which 
is unusually complete in many departments. 


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 Scriptures and to engage in singing and 
prayer. Students must attend religious worship at least 
once on the Sabbath in one of the churches in Jackson. 


One of tlie most potent factors in the College for devel- 
oping the students into a broader life is the Young Men's 
Christian Association. Its policy and aim is to develop 
the three-fold nature of the students — the moral, intel- 
lectual and spiritual. It is a well known fact that the 
student who develops himself intelligently at the expense 
of his moral and spiritual nature, is in no sense a com- 
plete man. Unless one becomes a well rounded man, he 
is not fit to fight the battles of life. 

Realizing this, the Association was organized shortly 
after the College was founded. It has done more to 
mold character and to hold up a high standard of ideals 
before the students than any other department in con- 
nection with the College. It has been dominated by the 
double purpose of leading men to accept Christ and to 
form such associations as will guard them against the 
temptations of college life. The Association has done 
much to strengthen the spiritual life and influence of the 
College, to promote Christian character and fellowship 
and progressive Christian work. It trains its members for 
Christian service and leads them to devote their lives to 
the cause of Christ where they can accomplish the most 
for the extension of the Kingdom of God. In order to 
accomplisli this purpose the Association holds weekly 
meetings on Friday evenings. These services are usually 
conducted by some one of the students, but occasionally 
by some member of the Faculty, or by some minister 
from town. 

Realizing the importance of a young man's choosing 
his life work while in college, a series of addresses, on 
"Life Work," has been arranged and prominent men 
of each profession are invited to address the Association 
from time to time on their respective professions. 


An annual revival is held some time in the year^ lasting 
more than a week^ which results in leading many young 
men to Christ each year. These services this year were 
conducted by Dr. Bowman^ of Amite City, La., and re- 
sulted in renewing enthusiasm and in giving great stim- 
ulus to Association work. 

The Association sends yearly a delegation to the 
Southern Students' Conference at Montreat, North Caro- 
lina. Since the ten days of the Convention are assidu- 
ously devoted to discussing Association work and prob- 
lems, the delegates always return enthuiastic and zealous 
for doing Christian service. 

The work of the Association is carried on by the stu- 
dents; each man has his part to do according to the plan 
of organization. The President, elected by the members, 
appoints chairmen of nine committees, each composed 
of three or more men. It is the duty of the Publicity 
Committee to advertise, by means of blotters and in other 
ways, all meetings, and secure good attendance. The 
Membership Committee meets all new students as they 
arrive, and gives them any information desired concerning 
College, boarding, facilities, etc. Afterward this com- 
mittee calls on each student and urges him to become a 
member of the Association. The Reception Committee 
has charge of College Night, and any other entertain- 
ment that the Association may choose to give during the 
year. The object of College Night is to make the stu- 
dents acquainted with one another and to interest the 
new men in the different phases of College life. The 
Employment Committee assists deserving students in get- 
ting employment for their spare time. The City Mission 
Committee has charge of work in different parts of the 
city. The Devotional Committee provides leaders, and 
the Music Committee provides music for each meeting. 
The Finance Committee, whose Chairman is the Treasurer 
of the Association, collects the annual dues ($1.50) and 
raises funds sufficient for meeting current expenses. 

But most important are the Bible Study and Mission 
Study Committees. Bible Study groups are formed at 


tlic Dormitory and al the boardinfjj Ijouscs. The stu- 
dents engage in daily Bible reading and meet, for one 
hour once a week, for discussion. The Mission Study 
Committee arranges courses in biograpliies of mission- 
aries in various mission fields and secures leaders for the 
various classes. 

The Y. M. C. A. is back of every phase of College life, 
and it is expected that every student shall identify him- 
self with the organization. 


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, respec- 
tively, the Galloway and the Lamar Societies, and con- 
tribute greatly to the improvement of their members. 


With the view of promoting general culture among the 
students, and to furnish them with pleasant and profitable 
entertainment, there will be a lyceum lecture course con- 
ducted by the College authorities. There will be from 
three to six numbers. The best talent available for the 
money will be engaged each year and each student upon 
entering College will be required to pay along with his 
other fees $1.00 for a season ticket to these lectures. 

In addition to the lyceum lecture course, one or two 
lectures will be given each year by the different members 
of the Faculty. During the past session Dr. J. M. Sul- 
livan delivered a public lecture before the student body. 
His subject was "The Evolution of Modern Science." 
Next year President D. C. Hull and Professor G. L. 
Harrell will in like manner discuss some phase of their 
work. These lectures are open to the general public. 



Students of Millsaps College, as a rule, arrange for 
their living in one of three ways: 

1. We have eight small cottages, in which students 
can board themselves at reduced cost. These cottages are 
admirably situated on the eastern side of the campus, as 
shown on the map. The rooms are sufficiently large to 
accommodate two students each. The room rental per 
student in the cottages is $9-00 for the session and must 
be paid as follows: $5.00 at the beginning of the session 
and $4.00 the 1st of February. The coal bill a year per 
student is not more than $5.00, when two students live in 
one room. The boys in these cottages have their own 
dining room and their meals last year cost them $9.00 a 
month. Lights amount to very little. Students living 
in the cottages furnish their rooms. Furniture for one 
room need not cost more than $10.00. It will be seen 
from the above that the necessary cost to a student living 
in a cottage need not exceed $12.00 a month. Students 
wishing to engage a room in one of the cottages should 
write Dr. M. W. Swartz, Treasurer, at the College. 

2. We have "Student Homes," capable of accommo- 
dating a limited number of boarders, and each is in charge 
of a Christian family. These homes furnish room, light, 
board and furniture at a cost of $15.00, $16.00, $17.00 
and $18.00 a month. Students furnish their own fuel, 
which costs about $5.00 a session. Students furnish their 
bedding and linen. The necessary cost in these homes 
range from $15.00 to $19-00 a month a student. Stu- 
dents wishing to engage board in one of these homes 
before coming to Millsaps to enter college should write 
the Secretary for names and addresses. 

3. Millsaps Preparatory School offers table board to 
a limited number of college students at a moderate rate. 
Last year the cost ranged from $10.50 to $12.50 a 
month. Students may room in the cottages and take 
their meals at the Preparatory School. There are Chris- 
tian homes where students may get rooms without board. 
In such cases the student may get meals at the Prepara- 


tory School or at private homes. The cost of board alone 
in private homes ranges from $11.00 to ^l-i.OO a month. 
Room rent alone in private homes ranges from $3.00 to 
$6.00 a month. It will be seen from the above that by 
rooming at one place and boarding at another that the 
cost will range from about $13.r)0 up a month. 

Memori.\l 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 stu- 
dents. These Homes are named, respectively, the John 
A. Ellis Cottage and the J. H. Brooks Cottage. 


Millsaps College is a member of the Southern Inter- 
collegiate Athletic Association, and takes part in all in- 
tercollegiate games except football. Games and sports of 
all kinds are under the special direction of the General 
Athletic Association, a student organization, whose object 
is to promote this class of physical exercise. The fac- 
ulty, by means of its Committee on Athletics, exercises 
a general advisory control, endeavoring to foresee and 
avert dangerous tendencies or excess in physical exer- 
cises while giving to the student, as far as possible, 
entire liberty of management; a strict limit is placed 
upon the character of intercollegiate games and the num- 
ber played away from the College. 

Our new athletic field is equipped with an excellent 
diamond, a perfect one-fourth mile cinder trfick, a grand- 
stand with seating capacity of 1,000, a fine set of hurdles 
and all other fixtures needed in field sports. The cost 
of this equipment was about five thousand dollars, the 
greater part of which was donated by Major R. W. Mill- 
saps. The work of turfing, protection and decoration 
is going on steadily and will, it is estimated, cost two 
thousand dollars more. 



The courses of study are comprised in three depart- 
ments, two of which are academic and one professional. 
The former include the College and Department of Grad- 
uate studies, the latter the Department of Law. The 
various departments are under the direction of professors 
who are responsible for the systems and methods pur- 

The session begins on the third Wednesday of Septem- 
ber and continues, with a recess of about ten days at 
Christmas, until the second Tuesday in June. The first 
two days of the session are given to registration, and all 
students, both old and new, are required during that time 
to place their names upon the books of the College and 
the rolls of their respective classes. Lecture courses 
begin Friday and absences will be recorded against any 
student not present from the opening lecture of each 
course. (Students entering after the first three days will 
be charged a fee of $1.00 for registration.) 


The examinations in each class are held in writing. 
Oral examinations are held in some departments, but 
they are auxiliary to the written examinations, which, 
in conjunction with the class standing as determined by 
the daily work of the student, are the main tests of the 
student's proficiency. 


Reports are sent at the close of each quarter to the 
parent or guardian of each student. These reports give 
the number of unexcused absences from lectures, and 
indicate, as nearly as is practicable, the nature of the 
progress made by him in his work at the College. 


Not the least of the educational influences of the Col- 
lege is the honor system. According to this system the 


student is not watched by the members of the faculty 
during examinations, but is required to pledge upon his 
honor as a gentleman that he has neither received nor 
given any aid during the period of the examination. If 
a student is accused of cheating, he is given a full and 
fair trial by the Honor Council, which is composed of 
seven men selected by the students. Experience has 
shown that under this system not only has cheating 
on examinations been lessened, but that a spirit of honor 
and truth has been fostered which tends to include not 
only the examination tests, but all relations between stu- 
dent and professor. 



Applicants seeking admission to the College for the 
first time should present themselves to the Secretary 
of the faculty at his office in the main building at some 
time during the first two days of the session. In each in- 
stance a certificate of good moral character must be pre- 
sented, signed by the proper official of the institution 
attended during the previous session, or by some person 
of known standing. Each candidate who satisfies these 
requirements and those for admission by diploma, cer- 
tificate or examination, previously stated, will be fur- 
nished with a card containing the courses which he pro- 
poses to pursue during the session. This card must be 
presented in turn to each professor concerned, who will, 
on satisfying himself that the applicant is prepared to 
pursue the course in question with profit, sign the card. 
The card must then be carried to the Treasurer, who will, 
after the College fees have been paid to him, sign the 
card. On payment of these fees the applicant will turn 
his card into the Secretary, who will furnish the several 
professors with cards admitting him to the classes indi- 
cated on his card. In no case will an applicant be ad- 
mitted to classes until he has paid his fees. 

Students who have already been matriculated as mem- 
bers of the College will present themselves directly to 
the members of the faculty not later than the second day 
of the session and conform, as regards the registration 
in their respective classes and payment of dues, to the 
requirements stated in the preceding paragraph. 


On the first week after the Christmas recess every 
student is required to register with the Secretary. Any 


student failing to register then will have his name 
dropped from the rolls of his classes until further orders 
from the President, but sueh student may be registered 
by the President and restored to his position in his classes 
on payment to the Treasurer of tlie delayed registration 
fee of $1.00. 

In case the delay in the student's return is due to 
illness, or to other like providential cause, the Treasurer 
is authorized to remit the fee and excuse absence; in 
every other case the absences due to delayed return shall 
be recorded as unexcused absences and the usual pen- 
alty be assigned. 


Students are not permitted to delay their registration 
through carelessness or for inadequate reasons. Any 
student, new or old, who fails to present himself for 
registration during the first two days of the session will 
be admitted to registration only upon the consent of the 


The academic year extends from the morning of the 
third Wednesday of September to the noon of the sec- 
ond Tuesday in June. Thanksgiving Day is a holiday, 
and there is a Christmas recess beginning on the morn- 
ing of the twenty-third of December and closing on 
the evening of the second of January. 

Attendance is required of each student throughout the 
entire session, with the exception of the days above indi- 
cated, unless he has received permission to be temporarily 
absent or to withdraw before its close. Leave of absence 
is granted by the faculty or President for sufficient 
reasons, and must in every case be obtained in advance. 
While in residence each student is required to attend regu- 
larly all lectures and other prescribed exercises and all 
examinations in the courses which he pursues (unless 
excused for cause), and in every way to conform to the 
regulations of the College. 


Absence from the College is permitted onlj^ upon the 
written leave of the President^ obtained in every case 
in advance. But leaves of absence for jjurpose of accom- 
panying the athletic teams^ debating teams and all other 
recognized clubs will not be granted except to officers 
and members of the organizations. 

Absence of athletic teams and other student organiza- 
tions are provided for by faculty regulations. 

Absence from classes are not excused except for pro- 
longed sickness or like providential cause^ and then only 
by faculty action. 

Absence from examinations will not be excused except 
for sickness on day of examination, attested by a physi- 
cian's certificate, or other cause which the faculty by 
special order may approve. An unexcused absence or 
presentation of an unpledged paper is counted as a total 
failure in the examination in which it occurs. A student 
whose absence from examination is excused is admitted to 
to the special examination ordered by the faculty. 

Change of Classes — Students cannot change classes 
or drop classes or take up new classes except by consent 
of the faculty. 

The grade of the student in any class, either for a term 
or for the session, is determined by the combined class 
standing and the result of examination. (In case the 
examination grade falls below 60 per cent., the class 
standing is not averaged.) 

Class standing in any course is determined by the 
regularity of attendance of the student upon the lectures 
(and laboratory or other similar exercises where in- 
cluded) in the course in question and by the faithful per- 
formance of his work as indicated by his answers when 
questioned, by written exercises, note-books, the faithful 
performance of laboratory (or other similar) work, etc. 
Students are regarded by the faculty as under the law of 
honor in matters affecting class standing or in examina- 

The grade for passing in any course is 70 per centum. 


Re-e.\amination — A student who attains in any course 
a grade for tlie term bilow 70 per cent., but not below 
50 per cent, is admitted by the faculty to a special exam- 
ination at a time set by the faculty. 

Withdrawals — Voluntary withdrawal from the Col- 
lege requires the written consent of the faculty or Presi- 

Enforced withdrawal is inflicted by the faculty for 
habitual delinquency in class, habitual idleness or any 
other fault which prevents the student from fulfilling 
the purpose for which he should have come to the College. 


The rules of the College require from every student 
decorous, sober and upright conduct as long as he remains 
a member of the College, whether he be within the pre- 
cincts or not. They require from the student regular 
and diligent application to liis studies, regular attend- 
ance upon chapel and Sunday services at one of the 

Drunkenness, gambling and dissoluteness are strictly 
forbidden, and any student found guilty of them is pun- 
ished by suspension or expulsion. 

Firearms — The keeping of firearms by the students 
is strictly forbidden. 

Visiting the City at Night — Students are forbidden 
to visit the town, or other place away from the College, 
at night, without permission from the President.

Privileged Students — Students preparing for the 
ministry in Christian denominations, and sons of preach' 


ers, will have no tuition to pay, but all students will be 
required to pay the contingent, l^'ceum, library and labor- 
atory fees. Any student claiming exemption from fees 
on the ground of preparing for the ministry must bring 
certificate to that effect from his Quarterly Conference; 
if not a Methodist, then from some ecclesiastical body of 
his denomination. 


Several scholarships have been established, the in- 
come from which will be loaned in aiding deserving young 
men in securing a collegiate education. For information 
concerning these scholarships the President or the Treas- 
urer of the Faculty should be consulted. The following 
is a list of the scholarships at present available: 

The W. H. Tribbett Scholarship. 

The W. H. Watkins Scholarship. 

The Peebles Scholarship. 

The Clara Chrisman Scholarship. 

Besides these scholarships, there is a teaching scholar- 
ship in each department, the holder of which will be 
expected to aid the head of the department in some 
definite work. Also, there are two scholarships from the 
Jackson High School and one offered by the U. D. C. 

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,

The Academic Schools comprise the Schools of Lan- 
guages, Mathematics, Science, History, Social Science, 
Literature, Philosophy, Education and Biblical Instruc- 
tion. In the undergraduate courses of these schools is 
comprised the work of the College with the degrees of 
Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science; in the grad- 
uate courses is comprised the work of Graduate Studies, 
with the degree of Master of Arts and Master of Science. 

B. A. Degree — The Bachelor of Arts course offers 
special instruction in the departments of Latin and 
Greek. This course presupposes two years of prepara- 
tory work in Greek or Modern Languages, three in 
Latin. In order to be allowed to enter upon the B. A. 
course, the applicant must stand an approved examina- 
tion in English, History, Science, Mathematics, Latin 
and Greek, or ]\Iodern Languages. 

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 Ger- 
man are studied. In order to be allowed to enter upon 
the B. S. course, the applicant must stand an approved 
examination in English, History, Science, Mathematics, 
Latin and Modern Languages. 


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. The principal subject chosen 
— known as the major course — will be expected to 
employ one-half the applicant's time; each of the minor 


courses^ one-quarter of his time. It is expected that 
the applicant for a master's degree^ after receiving a 
bachelor's degree, will spend at least one year at Millsaps 
College engaged in graduate study. Attention is directed 
to the schedule of degrees following and to the state- 
ment in connection with the account of work done in 
each department. 

The candidate for the Master of Arts degree must 
offer as a prerequisite an A. B. degree, or a B.S. degree, 
including two college j^ears of Latin, from Millsaps 
College or from a college whose degree is accepted by 
the Committee on Admission, and the candidate for the 
Master of Science degree must, under the same con- 
ditions, offer a B.S. degree. 

A full outline of the requirements for the degrees of 
Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science is given

Professor Hull. 

Philosophy of the mental economy and the great sub- 
jects of morals^ as they affect the heart and influence 
the life^ will be taught with great care and fidelity. 

This School embraces three departments: 
I. Bible Instruction. 

II. Mental Philosophy and Logic. 

HI. The History and Philosophy of Education. 

No entrance requirements are prescribed for the work 
of this Department. 


The members of the Freshman Class are required to 
devote one hour 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 tlie place of the private and devotional 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 Philosophy text-books and 
books of references of the most approved character will 
be used, and the method of instruction will be by lec- 
tures, and daily oral examinations, by anah'sis of sub- 
jects studied, and by original theses to be presented by 
the students on topics prescribed relating to the various 
departments of the school. 


1. Logic — A course extending through the session is 
required of all candidates for degrees. The first 
term is devoted to the study of Deductive Logic; 
the second term, to Induction, Fallacies and method. 

Text-book — Elements of Logic (Jevons-Hill). One 

2. Psychology — The Senior Class will devote the first 
term of the session to the study of Psychology. 

Text-book — Psychology (Titchenor). Two hours. 

3. Ethics — The second term of the Senior year will be 
- given to the study of Moral Philosophy in its rela- 
tions to practical life. 

Text-book — (Gregory.) Two hours. 

4. Education — Courses in education, elective for the 
Senior Class, are offered as follows: 

(a) The History of Education, in which the 
course of educational thought and progress 
will be traced from its beginnings among 
the Greeks and the Romans, through the 
Middle Ages, and the Renaissance, into the 
several movements and tendencies of the 
present time. 


(b) The Philosophy of Education, in which 

education is viewed as the process by which 
social experience is developed and trans- 
mitted, (2) the several types of racial ex- 
perience are tested with regard to their 
educational value, and (3) the principles 
thus developed are applied to the problems 
of the school. 
These courses will be offered in alternate years, course 
(a) only being given in 1912-13. 

Text-books — Monroe's Brief Course in the History of 
Education, Bagley's the Educative Process, and De 
Garmo's Principles of Secondary Education. Two 


Applicants for the degree of M.A. and M.S. may 
elect either (a) or (b) of course 4 as part of the work 
leading to the degree sought, provided the applicant did 
not take the course in question as a part of his under- 
graduate work.

The rooms given up to the study of this subject are 
modern, 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 photography, 
and into a room specially isolated and designed to retain 
delicate apparatus. The general laboratory opens con- 
veniently into a small fuming room outside of the build- 
ing, so that vapors may not pass from one to another, 
and is also connected with the storeroom. 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 
supplied v/ith modern equipment. 


The course in this department consists of three years 
of chemistry, one year bt-injr required of candidates for 
all degrees, while B.S. students are required in addition 
to ti'ke a second year. The subjects are taught by 
recitations and lectures and work which each student 
must perform in the laboratory. It is aimed that the 
laboratories be kept well equipped with apparatus neces- 
sary 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 inspection, but also cultivate a hand 
careful to the smallest detail, an eye observant of the 
slightest phenomenon, and habits of neatness, skill and 
economy. Each student will be expected to keep accurate 

Entrance credit for at least one Carnegie unit in 
Natural Science is required for admission to this depart- 

I. (a) IxoRGANic Chemistry — This course is de- 
signed to give the student a thorough working 
knowledge of general chemistry, including a care- 
ful study of fundamental laws of chemistry, the 
occurrence, properties and preparations 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 

Lectures and recitations, three hours. (Mon- 
day, Wednesday and Friday.)

ments and compounds, and required to note the 
deportment of various substances with reagents. 



The class each year is given an opportunity to 
visit certain industrial establishments, as sulphuric 
acid plant, phosphate works, and gas works. 
Laboratory exercises, two hours. (Thursday 

Text-book — Laboratory Exercises (Kahlenberg). 

11. (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 ex- 
periments. Some attention is given to physiologi- 
cal chemistry. Students will be expected to con- 
sult various works of reference. This course is 
required of applicants for the B.S. degree, and is 
a prescribed study in the Junior year. This 
course, in connection with II. (b), will appeal 
specially to preliminary dental and medical stu- 

Lectures and recitations, two hours. (Monday 
and Wednesday.)

fication of organic substances, or in Sanitary and 
Applied Chemistry. 

Text-books — Cohen, Holleman, Bailey. 

(c) General Chemistry (Advanced Course) — 
This course is intended to supplement course I. 
(a). Some phase of advanced chemistry — theo- 
retical, industrial, or physical, will be taught. A 
brief study of historial chemistry will be included. 
This course is elective in the Junior j^ear, and is 
designed for those who would know more of chem- 
istry than is possible in the Sophomore year. 

The course will be varied from time to time, as 
may be needed. 

Lectures and recitations, one hour. (Friday.) 

Text and Reference Books — Inorganic Chemistry 
(Remsen, Smith, Holleman), Physical Chemistry

Both of these courses are given during the Senior 

year, and are elective for all degrees. Four hours 

(Thursday and Friday). 

Finally, it should be said that in the chemical labora- 
tory 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, Roscoe and 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 the regu- 
lar schedule. 

A gold medal is offered by Mr. Marvin Geiger for 
general excellence in scholarship in Chemistry during 
the Sophomore year. 



In the post-graduate work of this department, 200 
hours of laboratory work in the subject chosen are

Professor Sullivan. 

A portion of tlie second floor of Webster Science Hall 
is occupied by this Department. The niusuem contains 
about JOO minerals collected from various parts of the 
world, 200 specimens of rock jiresented by the United 
States Geological Survey, a fine cabinet of 300 minerals 
and rocks presented by the Woman's College of Balti- 
more, and a fine collection of Mississippi rocks and 
fossils, all thoroughl}" indexed. The excellence of the 
latter is yearly increased by donations from friends of 
the College, and a collection made by the Senior Class. 


1. (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 arrangement 
of rock masses. First term (first half). 

(b) Physiographic and Dynamic Geology — This 
portion of the course embraces the study of 
physiographic features and processes, the mechan- 
ical 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). 

(c) Historical Geology — In addition to general 
historical geology, some attention will be given to 
economic products and to paleontology. Second 

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 Department afford 
minerals and fossils for class study. 

Several geological expeditions regularly made in the 
fall and spring to localities easily accessible from Jack- 
son, give the class a practical conception of this kind of 
survej'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 week's 
leave of absence on trips to more distant parts. In the 
last month of the year Hilgard's Geology of Mississippi 
and annual reports of the Smithsonian Institution and 
of the United States Geological Survey^ are used with 
the class. 

Lectures and recitations, two hours. (Tuesday and

Professor Harrell. 

The course in this Department consists of two years 
of physics and two years of biology. 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. 
Entrance credit for at least, one Carnegie unit in 
Natural Science is required for admission to this depart- 


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 leading purpose of the course in Mathematics 
is the logical training of the mind. A mastery of the 
fundamental principles of the subjects is insisted upon 
and much attention is given to the application of the 
knowledge acquired to the solution of problems of every- 
day life. Entrance credit for at least two and one-half 
Carnegie units in Mathematics is required for admission 
to this department. 



The first part of the year is given to the study of 
such topics in College Algebra as Ratio and Proportion, 
Progressions, Permutations and Combinations, the 
Binomial Theorem, Convergency and Divergency of 
Series, Inequalities, Determinants and Theory of Equa- 

The second part of the year is devoted to the study of 
Plane Trigonometry and its application. 

Text-books — C. Smith's College Algebra, Rothrock's 
Trigonometry; Spherical Trigonometry (Lyman and 
Goddard) ; College Algebra (C. Smith, Wells, and 
Wentworth) . 


The required work of the Sophomore year is Analytic 
Geometry. A careful study is made of the straight line, 
circle, parabola, ellipse, hyperbola and their properties, 
followed by a discussion of the general conic of the 
second degree and higher plane curves. The course is 
completed by a brief study of Solid Analytic Geometry. 
Three hours. 

We also offer in this year a course of special interest 
to teachers and those wishing a rapid review of Algebra 
and Trigonometry. This is a lecture course dealing with 
subject matter and methods of presentation. Students 
desiring this course should confer with the Professor 
before entering College. Three hours. (Elective.) 
Text-books — Analytic Geometry (Xichols) ; Algebra 
(Wells, Wentworth, C. Smith, Slaught and Lennes, 
Hedrick, Downey, Tanner, and others) ; Trigonome- 
try (Lyman and Goddard, Wells, Loney, Crockett, 
Taylor and others). 


Two courses are offered in the Junior year^ Calculus 
and Surveying. 


Calculus — The student is expected to acquire facility 
in the Differentiation and Integration of all the ele- 
mentary functions. The Differential Calculus is 
applied to Geometry and Mechanics. In the Inte- 
gral Calculus applications are made to finding the 
area of plane surfaces. It is hoped that this course 
will be such as to lead many to continue the study 
of Mathematics for its own sake. Three hours. 

Plane Surveying — This course includes chain survey- 
ings compass surveying, computation of area, plat- 
ting surveys, and transit surveying. Two hours. 
(Elective.) (A fee of $3.00 is required in this 

Text-books — Calculus (Osborne); Surveying (Barton). 


(a) Mechanics — (Morley.) Two hours. (Elective.) 

(b) Solid Analytic Geometry — (C. Smith.) Two 

hours. (Elective.) 

(c) Differential Equations — (Page.) Two hours. 

Remarks — (1) In addition to the above courses, 
others may be offered, if there is sufficient demand. 

(2) Students in the Freshman Class will be charged 
a fee of one dollar per year for the use of field instru- 

(3) Students wishing to make up work during the 
summer may be granted a special examination by apply- 
ing to the Professor for same and paying the special ex- 
amination fee. In case the student's instructor is not 
the Professor of Mathematics, on application, the exam- 
ination may be given by the instructor on the payment 
of the regular fee, 


The course embodies a general survey of Astronom- 
ical facts and principles, and is required in the Senior 
year for all degrees. Frequent use of the six-inch equa- 
torial telescope of the James Observatory adds interest 


to the study. A brief course in the history of Astronomy 
will be required. Two hours. 

Text-books — Manual of Astronomy (Young) ; History 
of Astronomy (Berry). 


Professor Walmsley. 
Miss Clingan. 

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 His- 
torical and Social Science, and it is certain that there is 
none in which the knowledge acquired is of more imme- 
diate 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 Depart- 
ment dissents in toto, but it is thought that these very 
books may be of special service. Under the guidance of 
the Professor the students are taught to reserve their 
own judgment until they are confident of the trustworthi- 
ness of the author. 

Entrance credit for at least two Carnegie units in 
History is required for admission to this department. 


In the Freshman year an outline of the history of 
Mediaeval and Modern Europe is given, and the stress 
is laid on the period since the Barbarian invasion, the 
period to which the modern nations trace their begin- 
ning. Written reports on assigned topics form an impor- 
tant part of the work of this year. No equivalent is 
accepted for this course unless it covers the same out- 
line and is believed to be of equal grade. Three hours. 
Text-books — Handbook of European History (Walm- 
sley) ; Civilization During the Middle Ages (Adams) ; 
Introduction to the Study of the Middle Ages (Em- 


erton) ; History of Western Europe (Robinson); 
Era of Protestant Revolution (Seebohm) ; Political 
History of Modern Europe (Schwill). 


This course is devoted to a careful study of one of the 
three periods in American political and constitutional 
history indicated below. A large amount of special 
parallel work is required in this class. Three hours. 
Text-books — I. Colonial History; History of the 
United States^ Vols. I. and II. (Channing) ; The 
Discovery of America Vol. I. (Fiske) ; Two Papers. 

II. Early Constitutional History; Lecky's Amer- 
ican Revolution (Woodburn) ; Critical Period of

In the Junior Class a medal is given by Mrs. Chalmers 
Meek Williamson, State Regent of the Daughters of the 
American Revolution, for the best paper on some revo- 
lutionary subject. For 1912-13 the assigned subject is 
"The Value of the French Alliance in the Revolution." 


The work of the Senior year, which is elective for all 
degrees, is either a study of the elementary principles of 
Politics and of their application in current questions, or 
an intensive study of the politics of Europe from the 
time of the French Revolution to the present. Two hours. 
Text-books — I. Political Parties and Party Problems 
in the United States (Woodburn) ; Democracy and 
the Party System (Ostrogorski) ; Lectures on Cur- 
rent Questions. (Omitted in 1912-13.)

(Reinsch); Lectures on Present Europe. 

In the Senior Class a set of books is given by the 

Head of the Department for the best paper on some 

subject in Political Science. This paper in 1912-13 will 

be on "The International Peace Movement." 


The alternate courses in the Junior or Senior year may 
be credited on the Master's work, if not already credited 
in the Bachelor's work. 


Professor Walmsley. 

While no extended work in the Social Sciences can be 
attempted in the time allotted in this department, it is 
believed that thorough, honest work is done, and an 
insight into problems as well as an appreciation of the 
complexity of modern social life is gained. 


The work in Economics, which is required of all 
Juniors, is given for about half the year to theoretical 
Economics, and an attempt is made to set forth clearly 
the present condition of economic thought. This is fol- 
lowed by a more practical course, in which some phase 
of economic thought is developed more at length. Dur- 
ing the past year the problems of the Protective Tariff 
were studied. Two hours. 

Text-books — Outlines of Economics (Ely) ; History and 
Problems of Organized Labor (Carlton). 


In the Senior year two courses are offered. The first, 
which is required of all Seniors, is in Political Science, 
and after studying our own government as it is, takes 


up the outlines of the government of England, and thus 
lays the foundation for intelligent political criticism. 
Three hours. 
Text-books — I. American Commonwealth (Bryce) ; 

Government of England (Lowell). 

II. Introduction to Political Science (Garner) ; 

American Government and Politics (Beard). 
The work of the second course, which is elective for 
all degrees, is in Sociology or International Law. In 
each course, after a theoretical study of the science, some 
of the present problems of society or diplomacy are 
studied in detail. Two hours. 
Text-books — I. Elements of Sociology (Giddings) ; 

Social Pathology (Smith). 

I. Principles of International Law (Lawrence) ; 

Colonial Government (Reinsch). (Omitted in

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 0"\vn 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 thor- 
oughness 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 Soi)homore 
classes is to train the student toward reading Greek and 
Latin with ease and accuracy. To tliis end tlie autliors 
read will serve as a basis for an accurate and thorough 
review of forms, syntax, and case relations, and to the 
acquisition of a vocabulary. A literary appreciation of 
the authors studied will be sought and their influence 
uj)on modern literature empliasizcd. 

An entrance credit of at least three units in Latin and 
at least two units in Greek is required for admission to 
the work of this department. 

Both Freshman and Sophomore classes meet three 
times a week. 



Text-books — Virgil's Aeneid (six books) ; Livy^ Books 
I., XXL, XXII. ; Grammar (Bennett's); The Latin 
Verb (Swartz) ; Dactylic Hexameter; Prose Com- 
position, Gayley's Classic Myths. 


Lysias (selected orations); Plato, Apology and Crito; 
Homer, Iliad or Odyssey (two books). Study of 
Epic Forms (Prosody; Prose Composition; Gram- 
mar (Goodwin) ; Gayley's Classic Myths. 



Text-books — Horace, Odes and Epodes (Bennett) ; 
Satires and Epistles (Kirkland) ; Cicero, de Ami- 
citia; Pliny's Letters; Prose Composition; Litera- 
ture (Wilkins) ; The Private Life of the Romans, 
Preston and Dodge. 


Homer, Iliad or Odyssey continued (six books) ; Hero- 
dotus, Books VI. and VII.; Euripides, Alcestis, 


Meters; Grammar; Prose Composition; Literature 


In the Junior and Senior years the eiFort will be con- 
tinually made to instill 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^ im- 
passive something, but that in it there pulsates a fiery 
glow and genial warth unequaled in the literature of

Since many of our Bible students go out into the 
active work of the ministry without having the advan- 
tages of a Theological Seminary, it has been thought 
advisable to offer a course in Bible Greek. The follow- 
ing course is offered as a substitute for a Junior Course 
in Classic Greek. 

Since a thorough appreciation of Hellenistic Greek 
from a linguistic standpoint cannot be had without an 
accurate knowledge of Classic Greek, students will be 


discouraged from taking this course who have 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 life 
work, for this course is in no way intended as a substi- 
tute 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 wordsj 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 explain all 
kindred references in the text; in short, everything will 
be done to elucidate the passage under discussion, and to 
bring out its meaning linguistically. 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 Prin- 
ciples of Textual Criticism; Meyer's Commentary 
on Acts; Coneybeare and Howson's Life of Paul; 
Davis' The Story of the Nazarene; Matthew's His- 
tory of New Testament Times in Palestine. 


Professor Kern. 
Miss Whitson. 

The aim of the four years' course in English is three- 
fold — to teach English composition, to study the origin 
and development of the English language and literature, 
and to interpret and appreciate English literature. 


After a rapid review of the essentials of composition 
and rhetoric, in which stress is placed chiefly upon cor- 
rectness and clearness, the more technical aspects of 
composition are studied in detail. Daily and weekly 


exercises serve to enforce the principles of the text-book. 
During the spring term selections from American liter- 
ature are read with the purpose of developing literary 
appreciation and the love of good literature. Especial 
attention is given to Poe and Hawthorne. Parallel read- 
ing is assigned throughout the year. Three hours. 
Text-books — Gardiner, Kittredge and Arnold, Manual 
of English Composition ; Woolley, Handbook of 
Composition; Woolley, Exercises in English; Poe, 
Poems and Tales (R. L. S.) ; Poe, Prose Tales 
(Macmillan) ; Longfellow, Tales of a Wayside Inn 
(R. L. S.); Hawthorne, Twice Told Tales (R. L. 
S.) ; Selections from Stevenson (Canby and Pierce). 


The object of this course is to give the student a gen- 
eral view of the history and development of English 
literature from the Old English period to the present, 
preparatory to the study of special periods and topics. 
Parallel with the development of the literature, select 
poems, essays, and novels are studied. In the spring 
term a short course in Shakespeare is given, in which 
stress is laid upon plot and character development, and 
upon methods of interpretation. Exercises in short 
story writing are required throughout the year. Three 

Text-books — Pancoast, Standard English Poems ; 
Moody and Lovett, A First View of English Litera- 
ture; Hamlet (Chambers); Macbeth (Chambers); 
Twelfth Night (Innes) ; Much Ado About Nothing 
(Smith) ; Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities (Moore) ; 
Eliot, Adam Bede; Scott, Heart of Midlothian. 


During the first half year the essentials of Old Eng- 
lish phonology and grammar are taught by means of text- 
books and lectures, and selections from Old English prose 
and poetry are read. This is followed by a course in 


Chaucer and in the history of the language. Parallel 
work is assigned throughout the year. Three hours. 
Text-books — Smith, Old English Grammar; Sweet, 
Anglo-Saxon Primer; Greenough and Kittredge, 
Words and Their Ways ; Chaucer, Prologue, Knight's 
Tale, Nun's Priest's Tale (Mather) ; Chaucer, The 
Tale of the Man of Lawe, The Pardoneres Tale, etc. 


In the Senior year the entire time is spent in the study 
of a single author. For the session of 1912-13 the class 
will study Shakespearean tragedy, basing their work 
upon the plays of Macbeth, Hamlet, Othello and King 
Lear. Two essays are required during the year. Two 

Text-books — Bradley, Shakespearean Tragedy; Boas, 
Shakespeare and His Predecessors; Macbeth (Cham- 
bers) ; Hamlet (Chambers) ; Othello (Rolfe) ; King 
Lear (Smith). 


Professor J. M. Burton. 

The regular work in French and German begins with 
the Freshman class, but for the benefit of those who 
have been unable to fulfill the entrance requirements in 
these subjects before entering college, a preparatory 
course will be given in each. The student is grounded 
in the fundamental principles of grammar and pro- 
nunciation, and, by the use of suitable readings, he 
acquires a fair facility in translation. This course, or 
its equivalent, one Carnegie unit, is required for admis- 
sion to the Freshman work in each subject. 

Text-books — German: Bacon's German Grammar; 
Bacon's Im Vaterland. French: Eraser and Squair's 
French Grammar, Part L; Mairet's La Tache du 
Petit Pierre; Legouve and Labiche's La Cigale chez 
les Fourmis. 



Tlie Freshman class continues the work of the ele- 
mentary course, reviewing and amplifying the principles 
learned there. Its aim is to complete a standard gram- 
mar in each subject, with weekly exercises in composi- 
tion and further work in pronunciation, and to enable 
the student to read French and German fluently. Sight 
reading will be stressed in the second term. 
Text-books — German: Thomas' German Grammar; 
Bacon's Im Vaterland; Forster's Karl Heinrich; 
Storm's Immensee; Freytag's Die Journalisten. 
French: Fraser and Squair's French Grammar, Part 
II.; Merimee's Columba; Labiche and Martin's Le 
Voyage de M. Perrichon ; ^Maupassant, Ten Short 
Stories; Hugo's La Chute. 


The work of the Sophomore year is similar to that of 
the Freshman, but is conducted less from a grammatical 
standpoint; its purpose is to widen the horizon of the 
student by giving him a first-hand knowledge of some 
other literature and people than his own. With some 
standard work as a basis, an effort will be made to intro- 
duce the student to the principle features and personali- 
ties of the French and German literatures. 
Text-books — German: Course A. — Lessing's Emilia 
Galotti ; Schiller's Wilhelm Tell ; Goethe's Faust, 
Part I.; Heine's Die Harzreise; Priest's Short His- 
tory of German Literature; Sidgwick's Home Life in 

Course B. (not offered in 1912-13) — Lessing's 
Nathan der Weise ; Goethe's Hermann und Dorothea ; 
Klenze's Deutsche Gedichte; Scheffel's Ekkehard; 
Priest's Short History of German Literature; Sidg- 
wick's Home Life in Germany. 

French: Course A. — Corneille's Le Cid; Racine's 
Athalie; Moliere's Le Misanthrope; Warren's French 
Prose of the XVII. Century; Hugo's Hernani; Bal- 


zac's Cinq Scenes de la Comedie Humaine; Daudet's 
Le Nabab; Kastner and Atkins' History of French 
Literature; Wendell's France of Today. 

Course B. (not offered in 1.Q12-13) — Corneille's 
Polyeucte; Racine's Andromache; Moliere's L'Avare; 
Hugo's Ruy Bias; Hugo's Notre Dame de Paris; 
Rostand's Cyrano de Bergerac; Gautier's Jettatura; 
Kastner and Atkins' History of French Literature; 
Wendell's France of Today. 


No distinct Junior courses will be given unless there 
is considerable demand for them. Any student, how- 
ever, who has finished the Sophomore work, may take 
the alternate course put down under that heading as a 
Junior or Senior elective. In this case the course will be 
supplemented by additional parallel readings and papers 
bearing on the subject under discussion.

Emmette Young Burton, A.B. 


Mifflin Wyatt Swartz, M.A., Ph. D. 

Edward Mayes, LL.D. 

For fourteen and a half years Professor of Law in the 

State University. 

Albert Whitfield, LL.D. 


Justice in the Supreme Court; for three and a half years 

Professor of Law in the State University. 

William R. Harper, Esq. 


The work of the school will be distributed between the 

instructors as follows : 

1. Professor Whitfield — The Law of Evidence; 
Criminal Law; Criminal Procedure; Law of Corpo- 
rations; Constitutional Law; Federal Courts, Juris- 
diction and Practice; Conflict of Laws; the Law of 
Real Property. 

2. Professor Harper — The Law of Pleading and 
Practice; Personal Property; Commercial Law; Con- 
tracts; Torts; Statute Law; Equity Jurisprudence; 
Equity Pleading; Practice. 



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, 
embodying a Law and a Theological School. 

In the year 1896, the time came when, in the judg- 
ment of the trustees, it was possible and proper to estab- 
lish 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 the step was determined on, a re- 
spectable class was already secured for the first session. 
Doctor Mayes came to us with fourteen years' experi- 
ence as law professor in the State University, and with 
a reputation for ability and skill as in 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, 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 an- 
swers were, as law directs, forwarded by the Chancellor 
to the Supreme Judges. Every applicant passed the 
ordeal successfully and received his license. We are now 
closing the fifteenth annual session of our Law School, 
and no student has failed in any year to pass the exam- 
ination and receive his license. We point with pride 
to the results. We now have two hundred and ten 

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 grad- 
uate of Millsaps College stands before the world en- 
dorsed, 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 law- 
yer 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 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 courts, and whose arguments will furnish an 
invaluable series of object lessons and an unfailing 
fountain of instruction to the students. Here also are 
located courts of all kinds known in the State, embracing 
not only the ordinary Municipal and the Circuit and 
Chancery Courts, but also the United States Court and 
the Supreme Court. Thus, the observant student may 
follow the history and course of cases in actual liti- 
gation from the lower tribunal to the highest, and ob- 
serve 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 life, 
he may be called upon to study and apply; thus he 
acquires a knowledge of the methods and practice of 

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. 

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 of 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 Senior, each comprising forty weeks, five 
exercises per week. 

The instruction will consist mainly of daily examina- 
tion 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 pro- 
fessor will accompany the examination by running com- 
ments upon the text, illustrating and explaining it, and 
showing how the law as therein stood has been modified 
or reversed by recent adjudications and legislation. 

The course will be carefully planned and conducted so 
as to meet the requirement of the ]\Iississippi law in 
respect to the admission of applicants to practice law, by 
examination before the Chancery Court, and will there- 
fore 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 Law of Plead- 
ing 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 

First, to prepare young men for examination for license 
to practice law, in such manner as both to ground them 
thoroughly in elementary legal principles and also to 


prepare them for examination for license with assur- 
ance of success; secondly^ to equip them for actual prac- 
tice by higher range of legal scholarship than what is 
merely needed for a successful examination for license. 
Therefore, our course of study is so arranged as fully to 
meet both of these ends. 

First: The curriculum of the Junior class will em- 
brace each of the eight subjects on which the applicant 
for license is required by the Code to be examined. A 
careful, detailed, and adequate course is followed, so that 
any student, even although he shall never have read any 
law before coming to us, if he will apply himself with 
reasonable fidelity, can go before the Chancellor at the 
expiration of his Junior year, with a certainty of suc- 
cess. The preparation of applicants for license in one 
year, will be in short, a specialty of this school. 

When the 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 
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 and, of 
course, without further examination, in case he shall 
desire to finish his course with us and take a degree of 
Bachelor of Laws. On the other hand, if he prefer to 
postpone his examination for license, he can be examined 
by the professor for advancement merely, and stand his 
test for license at the hands of the court at the end of 
the Senior year. 

As stated above, the Senior year is designed to give 
to the student a broader and deeper culture than is needed 
only for examination for license. It is not, strictly speak- 
ing, a post-graduate course, since it must be taken be- 
fore 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 recitations 
of the Junior class by way of review, and to be prepared 
for daily questioning on the daily lessons of the Junior 

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. 


Tuition (paj^able upon entrance) $50.00 

Contingent fee 5.00 

Lyceum Course fee 1 .00 



The Preparatory Department of Millsaps College was 
reorganized in IpH into a separate school, independent 
of the College in course of study, discipline and general 
management. The home of Millsaps Preparatory School 
is Founder's Hall, a large three-story brick building, con- 
taining the assembly hall, class rooms, the dining hall 
and about fifty dormitory rooms. The building is steam- 
heated and equipped with electric lights, waterworks and 
all modern conveniences. 

Discipline — Regulations suited to the needs of youth- 
ful students are enforced. Gentlemanly conduct is in- 
sisted upon. Students are forbidden to go to town at 
night, except when absolutely necessary. From 7 to 9:30 
at night they are required to assemble in the study hall 
and engage in preparation of lessons. 

Course of Study — The course of study is that of ^he 
regular four-year high school. "Thoroughness" is the 
watchword. As far as possible individual attention is 
given to backward and delinquent students. When the 
course is completed the graduate is prepared to enter 
any college or university in the country, or to begin at 
once the active duties of life.
