The charter of Millsaps College, which was granted February 
21, 1890, reads as follows: 

AN ACT to incorporate Millsaps College. 

Section 1. Be ii 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 Con- 
ference 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 Con- 
ference and Thomas L. Mellen, Warren C. Black, Alexander F. 
Watkins and Charles G. Andrews, members of the Mississippi 
Conference of said church, and Marion M. Evans, Luther Sexton, 
William L. Nugent, and Reuben W. Millsaps, of Jackson, lay 
members of said church, within the bounds of said Mississippi 
Conference, and Bishop Charles B. Galloway, be, and they are 
hereby constituted a body corporate and politic by and under 
the name and style of 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 
securities of every kind in aid of the endowment of such College; 
and may confer degrees and give certificates of scholarship and 
make by-laws for the government of said College and its affairs, 
as well as for their government, and do and perform all other acts 
for the benefit of said institution and the promotion of its welfare 
that are not repugnant to the Constitution and laws of this State 
or of the United States, subject, however, to the approval of the 
said two Conferences. 

• 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 

16 MiLLSAPs College 

permanent President and of such other persons as they may deter- 
mine to fill the offices of Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer, 
and shall prescribe the duties, powers and terms of office of all 
said officers, except as to the term of their said President, who 
shall hold office during life or good behavior, or so long as he may 
be physically able to discharge his duties. 

They shall also select by lot from the lay and clerical Trustees 
from each of said Conferences, one-half, who shall be Trustees of 
said College for three years and until their 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 Conference n^xt before the expiration of the term jf 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 herein- 
before 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 coroprate 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 there* 
after be vested with the full legal title thereto, and authorized to 
sue for and collect the same. 

History 17 

The said corporation shall have the power to select any appro- 
priate 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, dormitories, and halls as they may think expedient 
and proper to subserve the purposes of their organization and the 
best interests of said institution, and they may invite propositions 
from any city or town or individual in the State for such grounds, 
and may accept donations or grants of land for the site of said 

Sec. 5. That the lands or grounds not to exceed one hundred 
acres used by the corporation as a site and campus for said col- 
lege, and the buildings, dormitories and halls thereon erected, and 
the endowment fund contributed to said College shall be exempt 
from all State, County, and Municipal taxation so long as the 
said College shall be kept open and 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 College, and to this end reports 
shall be made to the said Conferences from year to year, and their 
advice in that behalf taken, and every reasonable effort shall be 
made to bring a collegiate education within the reach and 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 resolu- 
tions were adopted by a large majority of the Conference: 

"Resolved, 1. That a College for males under the 

auspices and control of the Methodist Episcopal Church, 

South, ought to be established at some central and access - 

ble point in the State of Mississippi. 

18 MiLLSAPS College 

"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, buildings, or money for that purpose, and report 
to the next session of this Conference." 

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

On December 12, 1888, the North Mississippi Conference met 
in Starkville, Mississippi, Bishop C. B. Galloway presiding. The 
Rev. T. L. Mellen appeared and reported the action taken by the 
Mississippi Conference. The. following transcript from the North 
Mississippi Conference Journal gives the responses made by that 

"Resolved, 1. That a College for the education of 
boys and young men should be established in the State of 
Mississippi under the auspices of the Methodist Episcopal 
Church, South. 

"2. That a committee of three laymen and three 
ministers be appointed to confer with a like committee 
already appointed by the Mississippi Conference." 
The following committee was accordingly appointed: Rev. 
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 summarized 
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 establish a Methodist College in Mississippi for the education 
of young men. In response to this earnest appeal Major R. W. 
Millsaps, a member of the commission, proposed to give $50,000 
to endow the institution, provided the Methodists of Mississippi 

History 19 

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 kindled such enthusiasm in our State or evoked such 
liberal offerings to the Lord. The fact has been demon- 
strated that the Church is profoundly convinced that the 
College is an absolute necessity." 

The report continues: 

"So high is the appreciation of the value of the pro- 
posed institution, that numerous towns in the State have 
entered into earnest competition to secure the location 
of the College within the limits of their respective borders, 
offering from $10,000 to $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 original proposition progressed, and $25,000 
had been collected, Major Millsaps in the year 1890 paid $25,000 
into the College treasury. 

20 MiLLSAPS College 

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 thereupon $25,000 was immediately- 
paid by Major Millsaps to the Executive Committee and the fol- 
lowing resolution was adopted: 

"Resolved, That the Executive Committee return our 
most heartfelt thanks to Major R. W. Millsaps for his 
second gift of $25,000, this day turned over to us. For 
his princely liberality and unfaltering interest in the great 
enterprise so happily and successfully inaugurated, the 
Church and State owe him a large debt of gratitude." 
The Conferences having provided for a Board of Trustees, the 
joint commission dissolved in January, 1890. This Board, to 
which was referred the matter of organizing the College, was com- 
posed of the following: ' 

Galloway, President. 

Rev. J. J. Wheat, D.D. 


W. C. Black, D.D, 

Rev. S. M. Thames 


T. L. Mellen 

Rev. T. J. Newell 


A. F. Watkins 

Rev. C. G. Andrews, D.D. 


R. M. Standifer 

Hon. G. D. Shands 


R. W. Millsaps 

Capt. D. L. Sweatman 


W. L. Nugent 

Mr. J. B. Streater 


Luther Sexton 

Mr. John Trice 


M. M. Evans 

After the Board organized under the charter the question of 
locating the College was considered with great care. The Board 
met repeatedly to 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 build- 
ings, 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 erection. 

History 21 

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 appli- 
cations were considered for professorships, and Mr. N. A. Patillo 
was elected Professor of Mathematics, and Mr. W. L. Weber was 
elected Professor of English Language and Literature. 

At the time of his election Professor Patillo was doing post- 
graduate work in the Johns Hopkins University of Baltimore. 
Professor Weber was the acting Professor of English at the South- 
western University of Georgetown, Texas, when he was by this 
action called to Millsaps College. The department of Mental 
and Moral Philosophy was established and President Murrah took 
charge of this department. 

At a subsequent meeting of the Board of Trustees, held July 
13, 1892, Mr. G. C. Swearingen was elected Professor of Latin 
and Greek, and the Rev. M. M. Black was elected Principal of 
the Preparatory Department. Both of these gentlemen had 
recently taken post-graduate courses at the Vanderbilt University, 
Nashville, Tennessee. 

The necessary buildings having been erected, the first scholas- 
tic 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 Professor of Chemistry and 

In June, 1894, the Rev. M. M. Black resigned the principal- 
ship 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, 

22 MiLLSAPS College 

and Professor R. S. Ricketts was elected Head Master, with Mr. 
E. L. Bailey as Assistant Master. 

The formal establishment of the Department of History and 
Modern Languages, was effected by the 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 Languages in Vanderbilt Univer- 
sity. The department was then divided, Mr. O. H. Moore, a 
graduate of Harvard University, being chosen Professor of Modern 
Languages, 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 Geology; 
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 depart- 

History 23 

ment. Judge Mayes has associated with him as active professors, 
Judge A. H. Whitfield, formerly of the Supreme Court of our State, 
and Judge R. F. Reed, a distinguished member of the Supreme 

At the close of the session of 1910-1911 the Preparatory Depart- 
ment was formally separated from the College and erected into a 
distinct institution under the name of the Millsaps Preparatory 
School. This school, with its buildings, is described in its own 

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 session of 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 processes through which Millsaps College has 
passed during the first ten years of its history has developed an 
ever-increasing demand for better dormitory and dining hall facil- 
ities. This need was supplied 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, and subsequently fifty acres of land imme- 
diately adjoining our campus valued at $50,000. The splendid 
brick structure thus secured, together with other buildings admira- 
bly 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, provided a 
supplemental sum of not less than $75,000 should be collected, and 
thus add $100,000 to the permanent endowment of the College. 

24 MiLLSAPS 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 collected for 
said purpose, and Mr. I. C. Enochs paid in $5,000, and Major 
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. 

At the 1913 Commencement, Major R. W. Millsaps donated to 
the College property on Capitol Street in the City of Jackson 
valued at $150,000. This is his largest single gift to the College. 

In January 1913 the dormitory of the Preparatory School 
was partially destroyed by fire. But the building was promptly 
restored, and some alterations made that have added to the appear- 
ance and value of the structure, and to its facilities for the work for 
which it was designed. 

A more disastrous fire totally destroyed the main building, 
January 27, 1914, greatly inconveniencing the work of the second 
term. But with commendable energy the work of repairing this 
loss was begun, and within a few months the old structure had been 
replaced by a handsome commodious administration building, 
costing approximately $60,000.00. 

With a productive endowment of over $300,000 and buildings 
and grounds worth approximately $250,000 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. 

The following statement of the material resources of the Col- 
lege, while not inclusive of all sources of its revenue, will give some 

History 25 

idea of the solidity of its foundation, and also furnishes a guarantee 
of its perpetuity: 

Productive endowment, including revenue- 
producing property $ 300,000 

Buildings and grounds 138,000 

Value of the Library 12,000 

Value of Chemical, Physical and Biological 

apparatus 7,500 

Furniture and Fixtures 3,500 

Unproductive Endowment 173,000 

Total $ 634,000 

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 practicable, 
be reduced to the lowest point consistent with the effic- 
ient 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."

Entrance Requirements 31 


The following definitions of the units in the requirements for 
entrance are designed on the one hand to guide the student in his 
preparation for the entrance examinations, and on the other to 
govern the high school principal and teacher in organizing the 
courses of study. 


The study of English in school has two main objects: (1) com- 
mand of correct and clear English, spoken and written; (2) ability 
to read with accuracy, intelligence, and appreciation. 

English A and B. Grammar and Composition. 

The first object requires instruction in Grammar and Composi- 
tion. English Grammar should ordinarily be reviewed in the 
secondary school; and correct spelling and grammatical accuracy 
should be rigorously exacted in connection with all written work 
during the four years. The principles of English Composition gov- 
erning punctuation, the use of words, sentences, and paragraphs 
should be thoroughly mastered; and practice in composition, oral 
as well as written, should extend throughout the secondary-school 
period. Written exercises may well comprise letter writing, narra- 
tion, description, and easy exposition and argument. It is advis- 
able that subjects for this work be taken from the student's personal 
experience, general knowledge, and studies other than English, as 
well as from his reading in Literature. Finally, special instruction 
in language and composition should be accompanied by concerted 
effort of teachers in all branches to cultivate in the student the 
habit of using good English in his recitations and various exercises, 
whether oral or written. 

English C. Literature. 

The second object is sought by means of two lists of books 
headed respectively Reading and Study, from which may be framed 
a progressive course in Literature covering four years. In con- 
nection with both lists, the student should be trained in reading 
aloud and be encouraged to commit to memory some of the more 

32 MiLLSAPS College 

notable passages both in verse and in prose. As an aid to literary 
appreciation, he is further advised to acquaint himself with the 
most important facts in the lives of the authors whose works he 
reads and with their place in literary history. 

(a) Reading. 

The aim of this course is to foster in the student the habit of 
intelligent reading and to develop a taste for good literature, by 
giving him a first-hand knowledge of some of its best specimens. 
He should read the books carefully, but his attention should not 
be so fixed upon details that he fails to appreciate the main purpose 
and charm of what he reads. 

With a view to large freedom of choice, the books provided 
for reading are arranged in the following groups, from each of which 
at least two selections are to be made, except as otherwise provided 
under Group I. 

Group I. — Classics in Translation.

in Genesis, Exodus, Joshua, Judges, Samuel, Kings, and Daniel, 
together with the books of Ruth and Esther; the Odyssey, 
with the omission, if desired, of Books I, II, III, IV, V, XV, 
XVI, XVII; the Iliad, with the omission, if desired, of Books 
XI, XIII, XIV, XV, XVII, XXI;tKeAeneid. The Odyssey, 
Iliad, and Aeneid should be read in English translations of 
recognized literary excellence. For any selection from this 
group a selection from any other group may he substituted. 

Group IL — Shakespeare. 

Midsummer Night's Dream; Merchant of Venice; As You Like It; 
Twelfth Night; The Tempest; Romeo and Juliet; King John;

However accurate in subject matter, no paper will be con- 
sidered satisfactory if seriously defective in punctuation, spelling, 
or other essentials of good usage. 

The examination will be divided into two parts, one of which 
will be on Grammar and Composition, and the other on Literature. 
In Grammar and Composition, the candidate may be asked specific 
questions upon the practical essentials of these studies, such as the 
relation of the various parts of a sentence to one another, the con- 
struction of individual words in a sentence of reasonable difficulty, 
and those good usages of modern English which one should know 
in distinction from current errors. The main test in composition 
will consist of one or more essays, developing a theme through 

36 MiLLSAPS College 

several paragraphs; the subjects will be drawn from the books read, 
from the candidate's other studies, and from his personal knowledge 
and experience quite apart from reading. For this purpose the 
examiner will provide several subjects, perhaps eight or ten, from 
which the candidate may make his own selections. He will not be 
expected to write more than four hundred words per hour. 

The examination in Literature will include: A. General ques- 
tions designed to test such a knowledge and appreciation of Liter- 
ature as may be gained by fulfilling the requirements defined under 
(a) Reading, above. The candidate will be required to submit a 
list of the books read in preparation for the examination, certified 
by the principal of the school in which he was prepared; but this 
list will not be made the basis of detailed questions. B. A test on 
the books prescribed for study, which will consist of questions upon 
their content, form, and structure, and upon the meaning of such 
words, phrases, and allusions as may be necessary to an understand- 
ing of the works and an appreciation of their salient qualities of 
style. General questions may also be asked concerning the lives of 
the authors, their other works, and the periods of literary history 
to which they belong.

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 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 commanding 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 intelligence 
of its people. Its literary, social and religious advantages are 

The College has an endowment of $473,000, of which $300,000, 
is productive, and several partially endowed scholarships. The 
first scholastic session began September 29, 1892, and the College 
has had remarkable prosperity from the beginning. The generous 
founder, Major Millsaps, by the gift of the Webster Science Hall, 
at a cost of $10,000, the Jackson College 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 observatory for the College in honor of the 
memory of his father, Mr. Peter James, and of his brother, Mr. 

48 MiLLSAPS College 

Samuel James. He also furnished the observatory with a mag- 
nificent telescope. The Observatory building and equipment has 
recently been renovated, and is in excellent order. 


Near the close of the session of 1905-1906, Mr. Andrew Car- 
negie offered to give SI 5, 000 for a library building if the trustees 
would supply an endowment of equal amount. Major Millsaps 
added to his many contributions by giving the full amount of the 
endowment. With the income from this endowment and the com- 
plete A. L. A. card catalogue, the College is able to offer library 
facilities that are not surpassed in the State. During the present 
session seventy-five periodicals were reveived 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, John W. Burruss and Rev. W. G. Millsaps, the 
entire 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 CarroUton, Mississippi, is used for the 
purchase of books in English literature. The students also have 
access to the State Library, which is unusually complete in many 


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 of 


One of the most potent factors in the College for developing 
the students into a broader life is the Young Men's Christian As- 

Announcements 49 

sociation. Its policy and aim is to develop the three-fold nature of 
the students — the moral, intellectual and spiritual. It is a well- 
known fact that the student who develops himself intellectually at 
the expense of his moral and spiritual nature, is in no sen e 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 
department in connection 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 accomplish this 
purpose the Association holds weekly meetings on Friday evenings. 
These services are usually conducted by ome one of the students, 
but occasionally by some member of the Faculty, or by some min- 
ister 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 pro- 

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 last year were conducted by Rev. H. B. 
Watkins of Natchez, Miss., 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 Carolina. Since the ten 
days of the Conv^ention are assiduously devoted to discussing As- 
sociation work and problems, the delegates always return enthus- 
iastic and zealous for doing Christian service. 

50 MiLLSAPS College 

The work of the Association is carried on by the students ; each 
man has his part to do according to the plan of organization. The 
President, elected by the members, appoints chairmen of nine com- 
mittees, each composed of three or more men. It is the duty of 
the Publicity Committee to advertize, by means of blotters and in 
other ways, all meetings, and secure good attendance. The Mem- 
bership Committee meets all new students as they arrive, and gives 
them any information desired concerning College, boarding facilities, 
etc. Afterward this committee calls on each student and urges 
him to become a member of the Association. The Reception Com- 
mittee has charge of College Night, and any other entertainment 
that the Association may choose to give during the year. The 
object of College Night is to make the students aquainted with 
one another and to interest the new men in the different phases of 
College life. The Employment Committee assists deserving stu- 
dents in getting 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 the Dormitory 
and at the boarding houses. The students engage in daily Bible 
reading and meet, for one hour once a week, for discussion. The 
Mission Study Committee arranges courses in biographies of mis- 
sionaries in various mission fields and secures leaders for the various 

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 


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 con- 

Announcements 51 

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


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 conducted 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. 


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 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. There are "Student Homes," capable of accommodating 
a limited number of boarders, and each is in charge of a Christian 
family. These homes furnish room, light, board and furniture at 

52 MiLLSAPS College 

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 
ranges 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 
was $11.50 a month. Students may room in the cottages and take 
their meals at the Preparatory School. There are Christian homes 
where students may get rooms without board. In such cases the 
student may get meals at the Preparatory 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. 


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 inter-collegiate games 
except football. Games and sports of all kinds are under the 
special direction of the General Athletic Association, a student or- 
ganization, whose object is to promote this class of physical exercize. 
The faculty exercises a general advisory control, endeavoring to 
foresee and avert dangerous tendencies or excess in physical exercises 
while giving to the student, as far as possible, entire liberty of 
management; a strict limit is placed upon the character of the 
intercollegiate games and the number played away from the College. 

Announcements 53 

Our new athletic field is equipped with an excellent diamond, 
a perfect one-fourth mile cinder track, a grandstand 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. 
Millsaps. The work of turfing, protection and decoration is going 
on steadily and will, it is estimated, cost two thousand dollars 


The courses of study are composed in three departments, 
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 September and 
continues, with a recess of about ten days at Christmass, 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 Collage 
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. 


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 un- 
excused absences from lectures, and indicate, as nearly as practicable 
the nature of the progress made by him in his work at the College. 

54 MiLLSAPS College 


Not the least of the educational influences of the College 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 his honor that he has neither received nor 
given any aid during the period of 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 
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 student 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 char- 
acter must be presented, 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 re- 
quirements and those for admission by diploma, certificate or ex- 
amination, previously stated, will be furnished with a card contain- 
ing the courses which he proposes 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 pur- 
sue 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 in to the Secretary. 

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

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. 

Students who have already been matriculated as members 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. 

56 MiLLSAPS College 


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 President. 


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

Attendance is required of each student throughout the entire 
session, with the exception of the days above indicated, 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 
regularly all lectures and other prescribed exercises and all ex- 
aminations in the courses which he pursues (unless excused for 
cause), and in every way to conform to the regulations of the 

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 purposes of accompanying 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 organizations are 
provided for by faculty regulations. 

Absence from classes are not excused except for prolonged 
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 physician's certifi- 
cate, or other cause which the faculty by special order may approve. 
An unexcused absence or presentation of an unpledged paper is 

Regulations 57 

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 faculty. 

Change of classes. 

Students cannot change classes or drop classes or take up new 
classes except by the 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 students upon the lectures (and laboratory or 
other similar exercises where included) in the course in question 
and by the faithful performance of his work as indicated by his 
answers when questioned, by written exercises, note-books, the 
faithful performance of laboratory (or other similiar) work, etc. 
Students are regarded by the faculty as under the law of honor in 
matters affecting class standing or in examinations. The grade for 
passing in any course is 70 per centum. 


A student who attains in any course a grade for the term below 
70 per cent., but not below 50 per cent., is admitted by the faculty 
to a special examination at a time set by the faculty. 


Voluntary withdrawals from the College require 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 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 precincts or not. They require

from the student regular and diligent application to his studies,

Degree Courses 65 

The Academic Schools comprise the Schools of Languages, 
Mathematics, Science, History, Social Science, Literature, Philoso- 
phy, Education and Biblical Instruction. 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 
graduate 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, 
History, Science, Mathematics, Latin and Greek, or Modern 

B. S. Degree. 

The Bachelor of Science course offers special work in Chem- 
istry, 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 ap- 
proved examination 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 applicant for the Master's 
Degree, after receiving a Bachelor's Degree, will spend at least 
one year at Millsaps College engaged in graduate study. Atten- 
tion is directed to the schedule of degrees following and to the 
statement in connection with the amount of work done in each 

66 MiLLSAPS College 

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 
conditions offer a B.S. Degree.

The members of the Fieshman 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 the place of the private and devotional study of the sacred 

School of Philosophy 71 

The English Bible and Steele's Outline? of Bible Study will be 
used as text-books in connection with the Department of Biblical 

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 lectures, and daily oral examina- 
tions, by analysis of subjects studied, and by original theses to be 
presented by the students on topics prescribed relating to the 
various departments of the school. 


1. Logic. 

A course extending through the session is required of all can- 
didates for degrees. The first term is devoted to the study of 
Deductive Logic; the second term to Induction, Fallacies, and

its beginnings among the Greeks and the Romans, 
through the Middle Ages, and the Renaissance, into 
the several movements and tendencies of the present 

72 MiLLSAPs College 

(b) The Philosophy of Education, in which education is 
viewed as the process by which social experience is 
developed and transmitted, (2) the several types of 
racial experience are tested with regard to their 
educational value, and (3) the principles thus devel- 
oped are applied to the problems of the school. 

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

as a part of his undergraduate work. 


Professor Sullivan. 
Mr. O'Donnell. 

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 conveniently 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 with modern equipment. 

The course in this department consists of three years of chem- 
istry, 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 

School of Chemistry 73 

each student must perform in the laboratory. It is intended that the 
laboratories be kept well equipped with apparatus necessary to 
the correct appreciation of the science. Each student has his own 
desk and apparatus, and is closely supervised, so that he may 
not only gain a true idea of the substance under inspection, but 
also cultivate a hand careful to the smallest detail, and eye observ- 
ant of the slightest phenomenon, and habits of neatness, skill, and 
economy. Each student will be expected to keep accurate notes. 
Entrance credit for at least one Carnegie unit in Natural 
Science is required for admission to this department. 

1. (a) Inorganic Chemistry. 

This course is designed to give the student a thorough work- 
ing knowledge of general chemistry, including a careful 
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 prerequi- 
site to either of the other courses in chemistry. 

Lectures and recitations, three hours. (Monday, Wednes- 
day and Friday.) 

Text-Book — General Chemistry (Henderson and McPherson). 
Reference Books — Richter, HoUeman, Smith, Blake, Bloxam. 

(b) Experimental Chemistry. 

This course is given in connection with (a), and each student 
is assigned the preparation of a number of elements 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 plants, phosphate works, and gas works. 
Laboratory exercises, two hours. (Thursday afternoon.) 
Text-Book — Laboratory Exercises. 

74 MiLLSAPs College 

II. (a) Organic Chemistry. 

The purpose of this course is to furnish a somewhat compre- 
hensive knowledge of organic chemistry, the instruction 
being given chiefly by lectures illustrated by experiments. 
Some attention is given to physiological chemistry. Students 
will be expected to consult 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 con- 
nection with II (b), will appeal specially to preliminary 
dental and medical students. 
Lectures and recitations two hours. (Monday and Wednes- 

Text-Book — Organic Chemistry (Perkin and Kipping). 

Reference Books — Norris, Bernthsen, HoUeman, Cohen. 

(b) I. Qualitative Analysis. 

This course consists in a systematic analysis of simple and 
compound substances and mixtures, the contents being 
unknown to the student. It is a prescribed study in the 
Junior year, and required for the B.S. Degree. The work 
is not confined to mere test-tube exercises, but is the subject 
of regular quizzes. The course will extend through the 
third quarter. 
Two hours. (Thursday afternoon.) 

Text-Book — Qualitative Analysis (Muter). 

Reference Books — Newth, Fresenius, Steightz. 

2. Practical Organic Chemistry. 

The preceding course will be followed during the last quarter 
with a course in the preparation and purification of organic 
substances, or in Sanitary and Applied Chemistry. 
Text-Books — Cohen, HoUeman, 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 

School of Chemistry 75 

study of historical chemistry will be included. This course 
is elective in the Junior year, and is designed for those 
who would know more of chemistry than is possible in the 
Sophomore year. 

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

Lectures and recitations, two hours. (Friday.) 
Text and Reference Books — Inorganic Chemistry (Remsen, 

Smith, Holleman), Physical Chemistry (Jones, Walker),

(b) Quantitative Analysis. 

A course in gravimetric and volumetric analysis, for which a 
special laboratory room is furnished, with modern desks 
and apparatus. 

Text-Books — Clowes and Coleman, Mahin, Addyman. 

Reference Books — Fresenius, Sutton, Talbot. 

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 laboratory text- 
books will be dispensed with as far as possible. The student 
will be taught to feel that the substances and apparatus around 
him are his alphabet. The teacher is constantly on hand to ques- 
tion 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 Commer- 
cial 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 
regular schedule.

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 

Several geological expeditions regularly made in the fall and 
spring to localities easily accessible from Jackson, give the class 
a practical conception of this kind of surveying. The College is 
fortunate in being located in the midst of a region that is quite 
varied in geological character. Occasionally the faculty grants 
a week's leave of absence on trips to more distant parts. In the 
last month of the year Hilgard's Geology of Mississippi and annual

V. Analytical Geometry (Advanced). 

This course presents the elements of Projective Geometry 
considered analytically. 

VI. Surveying. 

The ordinary course in plane surveying, with field practice. 


Professor Lin. 

In the courses in History two things will be kept in view' 
Students will be required to acquaint themselves with the sig" 
nificant facts in the development of the nations studied, and to 
learn why these facts are considered significant. As far as pos- 
sible, the causal connection between historical events will be 
indicated, emphasis being laid on the idea that History is a record 
of the continuous development of the human race, whose growing 
self-consciousness manifests itself in the progressive organization 
of its moral and intellectual ideals into laws and customs. 

School of History 83 

In order to understand each people or nation studied, account 
will be taken of its literature, its religious and social institutions, 
its economic conditions, and the organization of its government. 

Entrance credit for the two Carnegie units in History will be 
required for entrance to this department. One of these must be 
in Ancient History, listed as "History A" in the "Entrance Require- 
ments" printed in this Register. 

Course I. 

Three hours per week. Required of all Freshmen. 

In this course an outline of Mediaeval and Modern History 
will be given, and the beginnings of modern nations will be care- 
fully traced. No equivalent for this course will be accepted, unless 
it covers the same period and is of equal extent and grade. 
Text-Books — History of Western Europe (Robinson). As parallel. 

Readings in the History of Western Europe (Robinson), and 

Emerton's Introduction to the Middle Ages will be required. 

Course II. 

Required of all Juniors for the A.B. Degree. Junior elective 
for the B.S. Degree. Three hours per week. 

In this course especial stress will be laid on Modern History 
and present-day problems. An attempt will be made to show 
how the problems and ideals of modern nations grew out of their 
past history, and how they are affected by international relations. 
This will be done as a preparation for the study of the govern- 
mental institutions of our own and other countries, and as the 
basis of a correct understanding of the questions now engaging 
civilized nations. 

Text-Books — Europe Since 1815 (Hazen). As parallel, The His- 
torical Development of Modern Europe (Student's Edition), 
by Chas. M. Andrews, 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 will be offered. While these are 
elementary in their scope and nature, they will serve as a sound 
basis for further study in these subjects, and will be useful to those 
who seek to understand and improve our financial, political, and 
social life and institutions. 


Required of all Juniors. Two hoars per week. 

This class will be conducted by recitations from a text-book, 
by discussion in class, and by reports on assigned readings and 
Text-Books — Outlines of Economics (Ely). Parallel work will be 

assigned in Principles of Economics (Seager). Other readings 

will be required from time to time. One paper will be required 

on an assigned subject. 


Required of all Seniors. Three hours per week. 
This course will consist of a comparative study of the govern- 
ments of our own and other countries. The method of conducting

Elective for all courses. Two hours per week. 

Only work of the most elementary nature will be attempted 
in this subject. The study of assigned portions of the text, by

the method of conducting this class. Parallel readings will be 
assigned from time to time.

Mr, O'Donnell. 

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 mas- 
tery over one's own mind as to enable him to focus his thoughts 
with intentness and at will upon problems of intrinsic difficulty. 
The aim of this department will be to so shape the work as to 
endeavor to accomplish this result. To this end thoroughness and 
accuracy in all the courses will be insisted upon so that the solu- 
tion 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 

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 appre- 
ciation 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

In the Junior and Senior years the effort will be continually 
made to instil into the minds of the students an enthusiasm for 
Greek and Latin Literature; to show him that the literature of 
antiquity is not a dead, impassive something, but that in it there

pulsates a fiery glow and genial warmth unequaled in the litera- 
ture of modern times. The authors read will be expected, each in 
his several ways, to contribute his quota toward the accomplish- 
ment of this result.

See requirements for M.A. work, page — . 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 advantages of a Theological 
Seminary, it has been thought advisable to offer a course in Bible 
Greek. The following 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. 

School of English 89 

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 substitute for more diffi- 
cult Greek. 

The method of instruction will be to find out the exact mean- 
ing of the passage in hand by a close scrutiny 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 theo- 
logical. Two courses will be offered : 

(a) The Gospels. 

(b) The Letters of Paul, and Acts. 

Text-Books — Burton's Moods and Tenses; Wescott and Hort's 
Text of the Greek Bible; Gardiner's Principles of Textual 
Criticism; Meyer's Commentary on Acts; Coneybeare and 
Howson's Life of Paul; Davis' The Story of the Nazarene; 
Matthew's History of New Testament Times in Palestine. 


Professor Kern. 
Mr. Henry. 

The aim of the four-years' course in English is threefold — 
to teach English composition, to study the origin and develop- 
ment 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 correctness and 
clearness, the more technical aspects of composition are studied 
in detail. Daily and weekly exercises serve to enforce the prin- 
ciples of the text-book. During the spring term selections from 

90 MiLLSAPS College 

American literature are read with the purpose of developing literary 
appreciation and the love of good literature. Especial attention is 
given to Poe and Hawthorne. Parallel reading is assigned through- 
out the year. Three hours. 

Text-Books — Slater, Freshman Rhetoric; Woolley, Handbook 
of Composition; Poe, Poems and Tales (R. L. S.); Poe, Prose 
Tales (Macmillan); Longfellow, Tales of a Wayside Inn (R. L. 
S.); Hawthorne, Twice Told Tales (Herrick-Bruere) ; Steven- 
son, Selections (Canby); Canfield, College Student and his 


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, preparatory to the study of special 
periods and topics. Parallel with the development of the litera- 
ture, 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. Three hours. 
Text-Books — Pancoast, Standard English Poems; Moody and 
Lovett, A First View of English Literature; Hamlet (Cham- 
bers) ; Macbeth (Chambers) ; Twelfth Night (Innes) ; Cymbeline 
(Wyatt); Dickens, 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 English pho- 
nology and grammar are taught by means of text-books and lec- 
tures, 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 

Text-Books — Smith, Old English Grammar; Sweet, Anglo-Saxon 
Primer; Greenough and Kittrcdge, Words and Their Ways; 
Chaucer, Prologue, The Knight's Tale, Nun's Priest's Tale 
(Mather) ; Chaucer, The Tale of the Man of Lawe, The Par- 
doner's Tale, etc. (Skeat). 

School of Modern Languages 91 


In the Senior year the entire time is spent in the study of a 
single author. For the session of 1915-16, the class will study 
the tragedies of Shakespeare. Parallel reading and essays are 
required. Two hours. 

Text-Books — Bradley, Shakesperean Tragedy; the Arden edition 
of Hamlet, King Lear, Othello, Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet, 
Julius Caesar, Antony and Cleopatra, Coriolanius. 


Professor Withers. 
Miss Green. 

The regular work in French and German begins with the Fresh- 
man year, but for the benefit of those who have been unable to 
fulfil the entrance requirements in these subjects before entering 
college, a preparatory course (Course A) will be given in each. 
These courses, when not taken under the supervision of the College 
and when not already used as entrance units, may be counted as 
two-hour Junior or Senior electives. 

A student may spend four years in the study of French, but 
only three will be offered in German. Four years of modern 
languages will be accounted a satisfactory substitute for Greek. 

In order to avoid conflicts, students of modern languages are 
advised to take French in the Freshman year, and to begin German 
in the Sophomore or Junior year. 

The text-book lists are subject to change at any time and with- 
out notice. 

All classes meet three times a week. 

Course A. 

The student will be drilled in the basic principles of French 
grammar and pronunciation, and will have the opportunity, if he 
does not possess too little aptitude for languages, of acquiring 
facility in the translation of the less difficult texts. 

92 MiLLSAPS College 

Text-Books — Thieme and Effinger, French Grammar; Guerber, 
Contes et Legendes; Legouve and Labiche, La Cigale chez 
les Fourmis; Verne, Le Tour du Monde en Quatre-vingts Jours. 


With the Freshman class less attention will be given to gram- 
matical forms, as it will be presumed that a working acquaintance 
with these has been obtained during the first-year course. A study 
of the French verb will, however, keep the student alive to the main 
features of the syntax and the shades of meaning peculiar to the 
construction of the language. Some regular work in prose com- 
position will be required weekly, together with original articles in 
French and dictation exercises as often as is thought advisable by 
the professor. 

Text-Books — Armstrong, Syntax of the French Verb; Halevy, 
L'Abbe Constantin; Merimee, Colomba; Sand, La Mare au 
Diable; Dumas, Les Trois Mousquetaires; Musset, Trois 


The object of this course is chiefly to acquire some first-hand 
knowledge of the classic literature of the Golden Age in France, 
and as many as possible of the literary masterpieces of the seven- 
teenth century will be read. 

Text-Books — Strachey, Landmarks of French Literature; Cor- 
neille, Le Cid and Cinna; Racine, Andromaque and Iphigenie, 
Moliere, Les Precieuses (Ridicules) and Les Femmes Savantes; 
La Fontaine, Fables; Pascal, Les Provinciales and Les Pen- 
sees; Lanson, Histoire de la Litterature Francaise. 


This course will include more difficult readings in class and 
privately from important authors of the eighteenth and nineteenth 
centuries, with parallel assignments on political and literary move- 
ments of the period. Much stress will be placed on the enlarge- 
ment of the student's French vocabulary. A class in conversation 

School of Modern Languages 93 

will be organized for the benefit of those who display a special 
interest in the language, and who have the time and the capacity 
for serious work along this line. 

Text-Books — LeSage, Gil Bias; Beaumarchais, Le Barbier de 
Seville; Marivaux, Le Jeu de 1' Amour et du Hasard; Voltaire, 
Zadig; Chateaubriand, Atala and Les A ventures du dernier 
Abencerage; Hugo, Hernani and Quatre-Vingt-Treize; Loti, 
Pecheur d'Islande; Maupassant, Selections and Contes de 
Guerre; Henning, French Lyrics of the Nineteenth Century; 
Lanson, Histoire de la Litterature Francaise; Wendell, The 
France of To-day. 


The remarks on French will apply in the main to the courses 
offered in German. A good command of forms should be secured 
before the work of the Freshman year is undertaken. This course 
will include, however, a review of syntactical principles. The 
Freshman and Sophomore courses should serve to widen the literary 
horizon of the student by helping him to acquire a fairly intimate 
acquaintance with the language, literature, and life of the German 

Unless a student haS had exceptional advantages in the high 
school for the study of German, he will find it best to begin his 
work in that language with the first-year class (Course A). 

Course A. 

Text-Books — Walter and Krause, Beginners' German; Allen, 
German Daily Life; Storm, Immensee. 


Text-Books — Bernstorff, A Handbook of German Grammar; Pope, 
Writing and Speaking German; Gerstaecker, Germelshausen; 
von Hillern, Hoeher als die Kirche; Riehl, Die Vierzehn

For fourteen and a half years Professor of Law in the State 



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

Professor of Law in the State University. 


Judge Mississippi Supreme Court. 

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 Corporations; Constitutional Law; 
Federal Courts, Jurisdiction and Practice; Conflict of Laws; 
the Law of Real Property. 

2. Professor Reed — The Law of Pleading and Practice; Personal 
Property; Commercial Law; Contracts; 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 Theological School. 

In the year 1896, the time came, when, in the judgment of the 
trustees, it was possible and proper to establish the Law Depart- 
ment. Accordingly, they directed that at the beginning of the next 
session, the doors of the 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 experi- 
ment. Before the step was determined on, a respectable class was 
already secured for the first session. Doctor Mayes came to us 
with fourteen years' experience as law professor in the State Univer- 
sity, 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 prom- 
ised 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 sub- 
jected to a rigid written examination in open court, and their 
answers were, as the 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 seventeenth annual 
session of our Law School, and no student has failed in any year 
to pass the examination and receive his license. We point with 
pride to the results. We now have two hundred and sixty-three 

Law School 99 

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 state- 
ment of our own. The finding and the statement are those of the 
Judicial Department of the State; and every law graduate of Mill- 
saps College stands before the world endorsed, not by the College 
alone, which is much, but also by the State itself, speaking though 
its Chancellors. This is more than can be said for any other young 
lawyer in the State. None others have such a double approval as 
a part of their regular course. 

The location of the school at Jackson enables the managers 
to offer to the students extraordinary advantages in addition to 
the institution itself. Here is located the strongest bar in the 
State, whose management of their cases in courts and whose argu- 
ments 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 litigation from the lower tribunal to the highest, and 
observe in their practical operation the nice distinction between 
the State and Federal jurisdiction and practice. Here also is 
located the extensive and valuable State Law Library, unequalled 
in the State, and privileges of which each student may enjoy with- 
out 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 legislation. 

Applicants for admission to the Junior class must be at least 
nineteen years of age; those for admission to the Senior class must 
be at least twenty. Students may enter the Junior class without 
any preliminary examination, a good English elementary education 

100 MiLLSAPS College 

being all that is required. Students may enter the Senior class upon 
satisfactory examination on the matter of the Junior course or its 
equivalent. No student will be graduated on less than five months 
of actual attendance in the school. 

Each student will be required to present satisfactory certifi- 
cates 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 examination of the 
students on lessons assigned in standard textbooks. Formal writ- 
ten lectures will not be read. The law is too abstruse to be learned 
in that way. The professor will accompany the examination by 
running comments upon the text, illustrating and explaining it, 
and s-howing 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 requirements of the Mississippi law in respect to the 
admission of applicants to practice law, by examination before 
the Chancery Court, and will, therefore, embrace all the titles pre- 
scribed by Law for that examination, viz. : (1) The Law of Real 
Property; (2) The Law of Personal Property; (3) The Law of 
Pleading and Evidence; (4) The Commercial Law; (5) The Crim- 
inal Law; (6) Chancery and Chancery Pleadings; (7) The Statute 
Law of the State; (8) The Constitution of the State, of the United 

The objects set for accomplishment by this school are two: 

First, to prepare young men for examination for license to 
practice law, in such manner as both to ground them thoroughly 
in elementary legal principles and also to prepare them for exam- 
ination for license with assurance of success. 

Law School 101 

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 curriculum of the Junior Class will embrace each of the 
eight subjects on which the applicant for license is required by 
the Code to be examined. A careful, detailed, and adequate 
course is followed, so that any student, even though he shall never 
have read any law before coming to us, if he will apply himself with 
reasonable fidelity, can go before the Chancellor at the expiration 
of his Junior year, with a certainty of success. The preparation of 
applicants for 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 

As stated above, the Senior year is designed to give to the 
student a broader and deeper culture than is needed only for 
examination for license. It is not, strictly speaking, a post- 
graduate course, since it must be taken before graduation, but 
it is a post-licentiate course, and the degree conferred at its con- 
clusion 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 ques- 
tioning on the daily lessons of the Junior class.

Moot courts will be conducted under the direction of the pro-

The Preparatory Department of Millsaps College was re- 
organized in 1911 into a separate school independent of the College 
in course of study, discipline and general management. The home 
of the 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. 

Law School 103 


Regulations suited to the needs of youthful students are 
enforced. Gentlemanly conduct is insisted 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 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.
