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 money or negotiable securi- 
ties of every kind in aid of the endowment 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 

16 MiLLSAPs College 

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 
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 

History 17 

said College shall be turned 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 buildings, dormi- 
tories, 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 donations or 
grants of land for the site of said institution. 

Sec. 5. That the lands or groimds 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 ow^ 
control for higher learning in the Arts a|^4f^ifp<^f

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 

"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 Miss- 
issippi Conference." 

History 19 

The following committee was accordingly appointed: 
Eev. J. J. Wheat, 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 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 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 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 

20 MiLLSAPS College 

kindled such enthusiasm in our State or evoked 
such liberal offerings 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 SO, 
1893, he reported that the full amount had been collected 
to meet the terms of Major Millsaps' proposition, and 
thereupon $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 inaugu- 
rated, the Church and State owe him a large 
debt of gratitude." 

History 21 

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 Charlks 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, Mississippi, 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 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 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 
September 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 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. 

History 23 

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 was 
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 1908, 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 1910 the Board of Trustees 
created the office of Treasurer of the Faculty, and chose 
Dr. M. W. Swartz for this position. 

At the commencement of 1911 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 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, formerly 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 1910-1911 the Prepara- 
tory Department was formally separated from the Col- 
lege and erected into a distinct institution under the 

24 MiLLSAPs College 

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 accomodation 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 late 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 

History 25 

$5,000.00, and Maj. R. 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. 

With 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 consist- 
ent 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." 








The unit in the following estimate (p. 29) means a 
subject of study pursued in an academy or high school 
through a session of nine months with recitations five 
times a week an average of forty-five minutes being de- 
voted 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 contents 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. Certfficate 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^ whose munificent gifts have made the existence 
of the institution possible. The College is the property 
of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, and was or- 
ganized by the concurrent action of the Mississippi and 
North Mississippi Conferences. It is not sectarian, how- 
ever, 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 ol land immediately adjoining our campus, has 
greatly enlarged our facilities. 

44 MiLLSAPs College 


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. With 
the income from this endowment, which is applied to 
the purchase of books and periodicals, and the complete 
A. L. A. card catalogue, which has been installed, the 
College is able to offer library facilities that are not sur- 
passed in the State. During the present session seventy- 
five periodicals 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. 

A recent donation of unusual value is the library of 
the late John W. Burruss of Woodville, Mississippi, 
which was presented to the College in September, 1912, 
by Mr. H. B. McGehee of Woodville. The collection 
was the property of Mr. Henry Ginder of New Orleans, 

Announcements 45 

the husband of Mrs. Kate Burruss Ginder, and was 
given by him to Mr. McGehee. The library comprises 
about six hundred volumes dealing mainly with English 
literature, and contains many rare and valuable books. 


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 the 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 intellectually at the ex- 
pense of his moral and spiritual nature, is in no sense 
a complete 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 de^Dartment 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 

46 MiLLSAPs College 

to accomplish 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, last- 
ing ipore than a week, which results in leading many 
young men to Christ each year. These services last year 
were conducted by Dr. Bowman, of Amite City, La., and 
resulted in renewing enthusiasm and in giving great 
stimulus 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 enthusiastic 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 concern- 
ing College, boarding facilities, etc. Afterward this 
committee calls on each student and urges him to be- 
come a member of the Association. The Reception Com- 
mittee has charge of College Night, and any other enter- 
tainment that the Association may choose to give during 
the year. The object of College Night is to make the 
students acquainted with one another and to interest the 

Announcements 47 

new men in the different phases of College life. The 
Employment Committee assists deserving students in 
getting employment for their spare time. The City Mis- 
sion Committee has charge of work in different parts of 
the city. The Devotional Committee provides leaders, 
and the Music Committee provides music for each meet- 
ing. The Finance Committee, whose Chairman is the 
Treasurer of the Association, collects the annual dues 
($1.50) and raises funds sufficient for meeting current 

But most important are the Bible Study and Mission 
Study Committees. Bible Study groups are formed at 
the Dormitory and at the boarding houses. 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 biographies 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 
himself 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 profit- 
able entertainment, there will be a lyceum lecture course 
conducted by the College authorities. There will be 

48 MiLLSAPS College 

from three to six numbers. The best talent available 
for the money will be engaged each year and each stu- 
dent upon entering College will be required to pay along 
with his other fees $1.00 for a season ticket to these lec- 

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," 


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

1. There are eight small cottages, in which students 
can board themselves at reduced cost. These cottages 
are admirably situated on the eastern side of the cam- 
pus, 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 stu- 
dents 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. Stu- 
dents living in the cottages furnish their rooms. Fur- 
niture 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. There are "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 

Announcements 49 

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. 
Students 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 $14.00 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 $13.50 up a month. 

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 cot- 
tages for the accommodation of students. These Homes 
are named, respectively, the John A. Ellis Cottage and 
the J. H. Brooks Cottage. 


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 faculty 
exercises a general advisory control, endeavoring to fore- 
see and avert dangerous tendencies or excess in physical 
exercises while giving to the student, as far as possible. 

50 MiLLSAPs College 

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 track, a grand- 
stand with seating capacity of 1,000, a fine set of hur- 
dles 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 thou- 
sand 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 
Graduate studies, the latter the Department of Law. 
The various departments are under the direction of 
professors who are responsible for the systems and 
methods pursued. 

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 

ofnHpTit not present from the openinff lecture of enrh 

stndt'nt living in a cottage need not exceed ^12.00 a 

EXAMINATIONS t^-^«<=.,>^- 

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. 

Announcements 51 


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 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 ©f 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 
instance a certificate of good moral character must be 
presented^ signed by the proper official of the institution 
attended during the previous session, or by some person 
of known stajiding. 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. 

No student shall be admitted into any department 
of the College, except upon presentation to the professor 
of the department of the Treasurer's receipt for all en- 
trance and tuition fees. In no case are entrance fees 

Tuition fees will be charged by the term and must be 
paid not later than Thursday of the second week of 
each term. No tuition fee will be returned unless a 
student is disqualified for work by severe illness for 
more than a half term. 

No student shall be considered by the faculty as an 
applicant for graduation until he shall have settled with 
the Treasurer all his indebtedness to the College. 

Eegulations 53 

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. 


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 week 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 even- 
ing of the nineteenth 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 tempora- 
rily absent or to withdraw before its close. Leave of ab- 
sence 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 reg- 
ularly 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 only upon the 
written leave of the President, obtained in every case 
in advance. But leaves of absence for purpose of ac- 
companying the athletic teams, debating teams and all 

54 MiLLSAPS College 

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 the special examination ordered by the 

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- 
tions. The grade for passing in any course is 70 per 


A student who attains in any course a grade for the 
term below 70 per cent., but not below 50 per cent., is 

Eegulations 55 

admitted by the faculty to a special examination at a 
time set by the faculty. 


Voluntary withdrawals from the College requires the 
written consent of the faculty or President. 

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 Col- 


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 his 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. 


The keeping of firearms by the students is strictly 

Visiting the City at Night. 

Students are forbidden to visit the town, or other 
place away from the College, at night, without permis- 
sion from the President. 


Parents desiring to settle all college bills, such as 
board etc., thru the Treasurer may do so by simply 
sending check to Dr. M. W. Swartz, and specifying what 
the enclosure is intended to cover.

Degree Courses 63 

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 preparatory 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 examination in English, His- 
tory, Science, Mathematics, Latin and Greek, or Mod- 
ern 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 German are 
studied. In order to be allowed to enter upon the B. S. 
course, the applicant must stand an approved examina- 
tion in English, History, Science, Mathematics, Latin 
and Modern Languages. 

M. A. Degree. 

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 appli- 
cant for the 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 

64 MiLLSAPs College 

schedule of degrees following and to the statement in 
connection with the account of work done in each de- 

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 years 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

enlargement, but it is not designed that the course shall 
take the 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 analysis 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 In- 
duction, Fallacies and method.

(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.

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. 

School of Chemistry 71 

and into a room specially isolated and designed to re- 
tain delicate apparatus. The general laboratory opens 
conveniently into a small fuming room outside of the 
building, so that vapors may not pass from one to an- 
other, 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 with modern equipment. 

The course in this department consists of three years 
of chemistry, one year being required of candidates for 
all degrees, while B.S. students are required in addition 
to take 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 accu- 
rate notes. 

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

I. (a) Inorganic Chemistry, 

This course is designed to give the student a thorough

ing a careful study of fundamental laws of chem- 
istry, 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

Reference Books — Richter, HoUeman, Smith. 

(b) Experimental Cliemistry. 

This course is given in connection with (a), and 
each student is assigned the preparation of a 
number of elements and compounds, and re- 
quired to note the deportment of various sub- 
stances with reagents. The class each year is 
given an opportunity to visit certain industrial 
establishments, as sulphuric acid plants, phos- 
phate works, and gas works. Laboratory exer- 
cises, two hours. (Thursday afternon.) 

Text-Book — Laboratory Exercises (Kahlenberg).

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.

(c) Historical Geology, 

In addition to general historical 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 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 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 

School of Geology 77 

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 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 Bino- 
mial Theorem, Convergency and Divergency of Series, 
Inequalities, Determinants and Theory of Equations. 

Tlie 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 Spheri- 
cal Trigonometry and Analytic Geometry. A careful 
study is made of the straight line, circle, parabola, el- 
lipse, hyperbola and their properties, followed by a dis- 

School of Mathematics 81 

cussion 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 (Nichols) ; Algebra 
(Wells, Wentworth, C. Smith, Slaught and Lennes, 
Hendrick, Downey, Tanner, and others) ; Trigonome- 
try (Lyman and Goddard, Wells, Loney, Crockett, 
Taylor and others.)

and Surveying. 


The student is expected to acquire facility in the 

Differentiation and Integration of all the elementary 

functions. The Differential Calculus is applied 

to Geometry and Mechanics. In the Integral 

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 surveying, compass survey- 
ing, computation of area, platting surveys, and transit 
surveying. Two hours (Elective) (A fee of $3.00 is 
required in this course.)

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

(2) 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 
examination 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. 

Professor Lin. 

Two things will be kept in view in the courses in 
History. Students will be required to acquaint them- 
selves with the significant facts in the development of 
the nations studied, and an attempt will be made to 
show why those facts are significant. As far as pos- 
sible the casual connection of these facts with each other 
will be indicated. 

Throughout all courses stress will be laid on the idea 
that History is the record of a continuous development 
of the human race, whose growing self-consciousness 
manifests itself in the organization into laws and cus- 
toms of its moral and intellectual ideals. 

In order to understand the life of each people con- 
sidered account will be taken of its literature, its reli- 
gious and social institutions, its economic conditions, and 
the organization of its government. 

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

Course I. 

Required of all Freshmen. Three hours per week. 

In this course an outline of the history of Mediaeval 
and Modern Europe will be given, and the beginnings 
of modern nations carefully traced. No equivalent for 
this course will be accepted unless it covers the same 
period, and is of equal extent and grade. 

School of History 83 

Text-Books — Introduction to the Study of the Middle 
Ages (Emerton) ; History of Western Europe (Rob- 
inson). Readings in the History of Western Europe 
(Robinson) will be required as parallel. 

Course II. 

Required of Juniors for A.B. degree. Junior elective 
for B.S. Three hours. 

In this course especial stress will be laid on Modern 
History. An attempt will be made to show how the 
present problems and ideals of the nations considered 
grew out of their past history, and how they are af- 
fected by their relations with other nations. This will 
be done as a preparation for the study of the govern- 
mental institutions of our own and other countries, and 
also as the basis of a correct understanding of present- 
day problems. 
Text-Book — Europe Since 1815 (Hazen). Lectures 

and readings on the present situation in Europe and 

Asia will be given. Reinsch's World Politics in the 

Nineteenth Century and Fyffe's History of Modern 

Europe will be required as parallel. 

One paper on an assigned subject will be required 

each term. 

Course III. 

Senior elective. Three hours. 

This course will be correlated as far as possible with 
the course in Political Science. The first term will be 
devoted to the constitutional history of England. The 
political and constitutional history of the United States 
will be studied the second term. 
Text-Books will be announced later. One paper will 

be required. 


Professor Lin. 

The aim in this department will be rather to do well 

a small amount of work than to cover a large field. 

Courses in Economics, Political Science, and Sociology 

84 MiLLSAPs College 

will be offered. While these are elementary in their 
scope and nature, they will serve as a sound basis for 
further specialization in these subjects, and are useful 
to those who seek to understand and better our finan- 
cial, political, and social life and institutions. 


Required of all Juniors. Two hours per week. 

This class will be conducted by assigned work in a 
text-book, by reports on assigned readings, and by dis- 
cussion in class. 

Text-Books — Outlines of Economics (E^) ; Selected 
readings in Economics (Bullock) (Abridged edition), 
will be required as parallel. Other readings will be as- 
signed from time to time. 

Required of all Seniors. Three hours per week. 
The first term of this course will be devoted to con- 
■ sideration of the government of the principal European 
nations which have written constitutions. A comparison 
will be made of these constitutions with that of the 
United States, and the reasons for the differences in 
each particular will be considered. The second term 
will be given to the Constitution of the United States, 
and to our Congressional government. 
Text-Books — Political Science and Constitutional Law 
(Burgess) ; The American Commonwealth (Bryce, 
abridged edition.) ^Mson's Congressional Government

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 instrinsic difficulty. The aim of 
this department will be to so 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 Sophomore 
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 relations, and to the 
acquisition of a vocabulary. A literary appreciation of 
the authors studied will be sought and their influence 
upon modern literature emphasized. 

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.

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 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, im- 
passive something, but that in it there pulsates a fiery 
glow and genial warmth unequaled in the literature of 
modern times. The authors read will be expected, each 
in his several ways, to contribute his quota toward the 
accomplishment of this result.

For Graduates. 

See requirements for M. A. work, page 63. Courses 
C and D in Greek and Course D in Latin, will be 
offered as graduate work. 

Course in Bible Greek. 

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 fin- 
ished the Sophomore year in Classic Greek. Further- 
more, 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 
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 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.

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 — Linn, The Essentials of English Com- 
position; Woolley, Handbook of Composition; Poe, 
Poems and Tales (R. L. S.) ; Poe, Prose Tales (Mac- 
millan) ; Longfellow, Tales of a Wayside Inn (R. L. 
S.) ; Hawthorne, Twice Told Tales (Herrick-Bruere) ; 
Stevenson, Selections (Canby). 


The object of this course is to give the student a 
general view of the history and development of English 
literature from the Old English period to the present, 

90 MiLLSAPs College 

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) ; Cymbeline (Wyatt) ; Dick- 
ens, A Tale of Two Cities (Moore) ; Bulwer-Lytton, 
Harold; Hawthorne, Scarlet Letter; Kingsley, West- 
ward Ho. 


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 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 Kittridge, 
Words and Their Ways ; Chaucer, Prologue, Knight's 
Tale, Nun's Priest's Tale (Mather) ; Chaucer, The 
Tale of the Man of Lawe, The Pardoners Tale, etc. 


In the Senior year the entire time is spent in the 
study of a single author. For the session of 1913-1914 
the class will study the poems of Tennyson. Especial 
attention will be given to "The Idylls of the King." 
Two essays are required during the year. Two hours. 
Text-Books — Tennyson's Works (Globe) ; Benson,

School of Modern Languages 91 

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 fulfil 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. 

A student who substitutes Modern Languages for 
Greek must take both French and German, and college 
classes must be substituted for college classes. But a 
year of preparatory Modern Languages taken under the 
supervision of the college, if not already used as an 
entrance unit, may be counted as a two hour Junior or 
Senior elective; but only when both French and German 
have been continued in the college course. In order to 
avoid conflicts, students in Modern Languages are ad- 
vised to take French in the Freshman year and to begin 
German in the Sophomore or Junior year. Each class 
meets three times a week.

The 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- 

92 Mill SAPS College 

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.

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 principal features and personali- 
ties of the French and German literatures.

The work of the Junior year in French will consist 
of a thorough study of some particular period or move- 
ment in French literature. Text-books will be assigned 
when the class has been organized.

For fourteen and a half years Professor of Law in the 

State University. 



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

1. Professor Whitefield — 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

Contracts ; Torts ; Statute Law ; Equity Jurispru-

'Deceased, April 14, 1913. 



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

In the year 1896, the time came when, in the judg- 
ment of the trustees, it was possible and proper to 
establish the Law Department. Accordingly, they di- 
rected that at the beginning of the next session, the 
doors of this institution should be opened for the stu- 
dents of law, and Professor Edward Mayes was en- 
gaged to take the active control and instruction of that 

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 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, Chancellor, presid- 
ing 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 or- 
deal successfully and received his license. We are now 
closing the fifteenth annual session of our Law School, 

98 MnxsAPs College 

and no student has failed in any year to pass the examina- 
tion and receive his license. We point with pride to the 
results. We now have two hundred and ten 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 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 ap- 
proval as a part of their regular course. 

The location of the school at Jackson enables the 
managers to offer to the students extraordinary advan- 
tages, in addition to the institution itself. Here is lo- 
cated the strongest bar in the State, whose management 
of their cases in courts, and whose arguments will fur- 
nish an invaluable series of object lessons and an un- 
failing 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 Cir- 
cuit and Chancery Courts, but also the United States 
Court and the Supreme Court. Thus, the observant stu- 
dent 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 dis- 
tinction between the State and Federal jurisdiction and 
practice. Here also is located the extensive and valuable 
State Law Library, unequalled in the State, and privi- 
leges 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. 

Law School 99 

in after life^ he may be called upon to study and apply ; 
thus he acquires a knowledge of the methods and prac- 
tice 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 exam- 
ination^ a good English elementary education being all 
that is required. Students may enter the Senior class 
upon satisfactory examination on the matter of the Jun- 
ior course or its equivalent. No student will be grad- 
uated 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 sixty 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. 

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 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 Mississippi 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- 

100 MiLLSAPs College 

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 Constitu- 
tion 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 practice 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. 

The curriculvun of the Junior Class will embrace 
each of the eight subjects on which the applicant for 
license is required by the Code to be examined. A care- 
ful, 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 

Law School ' 101 

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 need- 
ed 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 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.

The Preparatory Department of Millsaps College was 
reorganized in 1911 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, 
containing the assembly hall, class rooms, the dining 
hall and about fifty dormitory rooms. The building is 
steam-heated and equipped with electric lights, water- 
works and all modern conveniences. 


Regulations suited to the needs of youthful stu"- 
dents 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 the regular 
four-year high school. "Thoroughness" is the watch- 
word. 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.
