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 im- 
pleaded, 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 here- 
after 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 fhe government of said Col- 
lege and its affairs, as well as for their government, and do

stitution 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

loway as their permanent President and of such other persons 
as they may determine to fill the offices of Vice-President, Sec- 
retary and Treasurer, and shall prescribe the duties, powers 
and terms of office of all said officers, except as to the term 
of their said President, who shall hold office during life or good

They shall also select by lot from the lay and clerical Trus- 
tees from each of said Conferences, one-half, who shall be

able 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

18 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

The College has Its origin in the general policy of the Meth- 
odist 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 follow- 
ing resolutions were adopted by a large majority of the Con- 
ference: 

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

In accordance with this action, the President of the Con- 
ference, Bishop R. K. Hargrove, appointed the following commit- 
tee: 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 Decermber 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 body: 

"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. 



HISTORY 19 

"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 comimittee 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 propo- 
sition to establish a Methodist College in Mississippi for the 
education of young mien. 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 would give a sum equal to this amount for said 
purpose. This proposition was enthusiastically approved, and 
after a plan of procedure was adopted. Bishop Charles B. Gal- 
loway 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 timie to time. The re- 
port submitted to the Conferences by the committee in Decem- 
ber, 1899, refers to the movement in the following language: 

"The canvass, on account of the numerous necessi- 
tated absences of Bishop Galloway from the State, 
could not be continuously carried on, but even the par- 
tial canvass made, emibracing 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, 



20 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

and by every section of the State. It is safe to say that 
no effort of Methodism has ever kindled such enthus- 
iasm in our State or evoked such liberal offerings to 
the Lord. The fact has been demonstrated that the 
Church is profoundly convinced that the College is an 
absolute necessity." 

The report continues: 

"So high is the appreciation of the value of the 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 respec- 
tive borders, offering fromi $10,000 to $36,000, and from 
twenty to eighty acres of land." 

In December, 1899, the Rev. A. F. Watkins, a member of 
the Mississippi Conference, was appointed a special agent to 
cooperate with Bishop Galloway in all matters pertaining to 
the endowment of the proposed College. As the work of rais- 
ing 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. 

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 im- 
mediately paid by Major Millsaps to the Executive Committee 
and the following resolution was adopted: 

"Resolved, That the Executive Committee return our 
most heartfelt thanks to Major R. W. Millsaps for his 
second gift of $25,000, this day turned over to us. For 
his princely liberality and unfaltering interest in the 
great enterprise so happily and successfully inaugura- 
ted, the Church and State owe him a large debt of 
gratitude." 



HISTORY 21 

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 composed of the following: 

BISHOP CHARLES B. GALLOWAY, President. 

REV. J. J. WHEAT, D.D. REV. W. C. BLACK, D.D. 

REV. S. M. THAMES REV. T. L. MELLEN 

REV. T. J. NEWELL REV. A. F. WATKINS 

REV. C. G. ANDREWS, D.D. REV. R. M. STANDIFER 

HON. G. D. SHANDS MAJ. R. W. MILLSAPS 

CAPT. D. L. SWEATMAN COL. W. L. NUGENT 

MR. J. B. STREATER DR. LUTHER SEXTON 

MR. JOHN TRICE HON. M. M. EVANS 

After the Board organized under the charter the 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 buildings, and to this sum Major Millsaps added 
$15,000. Plans for a commodious main building were immediate- 
ly procured, grounds were purchased and in a comparatively 
short timie buildings were in process of erection. 

At a meeting held in Jackson, April 28, 1892, Rev. W. B. 
Murrah was elected President, N. A. Patillo was elected Pro- 
fessor of Mathematics, W. L. Weber, Professor of English Lan- 
guage and Literature, and G. C. Swearingen was elected Pro- 
fessor of Latin and Greek and Rev. M. M. Black was chosen 
Principal of the Preparatory School. 

With this faculty the College began its first session on 
September 29, 1892. W. L. Weber was made Secretary of the 
Faculty. 

In 1893 the Department of Chemistry was created, and A. 
M. Muckenfuss was electel to take charge of it. 



22 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

In 1894 Rev. M. M. Black resigned as Principal of the Pre- 
paratory School, the school was re-organized, and Professor 
R. S. Ricketts was elected Headmaster. E. L. Bailey was elect- 
ed Assistant Master. 

In 1897 the Department of History and Modern Languages 
was created, and J. P. Hanner was elected to the position. Work 
in these subjects had been offered prior to that time. In 1904 
the department was divided, the Departmient of History and 
Economics, witli J. E. Walmsley at its head, was established, 
and the Department of Modern Languages was created, with 
O. H. Moore as its first head. 

In 1908 the chair of Assistant Master in Latin and English 
was added to the Preparatory School, and S. G. Noble was 
elected to that position. 

In 1908 the office of Treasurer of the Faculty was created, 
and Dr. M. W. Swartz, Professor of Ancient Languages, was 
chosen for this place. 

In 1911 the office of Vice-President was created, and Dr. 
J. M. Sullivan, Professor of Chemistry, Physics and Natural 
History, was made Vice-President. At the same time the chair 
which Doctor Sullivan had occupied was divided, and Doctor 
Sullivan was made Professor of Chemistry and Geology, the 
Departmient of Physics and Biology was created, and G. L. Har- 
rell was placed in charge of that work. 

The unusual facilities for conducting a Law School in Jack- 
son led to the establishment, in 1896, of a School of Law. Hon. 
Edward Mayes, ex-Chancellor of the University of Mississippi, 
and for more than fourteen years a professor of Law in that 
institution, took active control of the new School and is still its 
head. Associated with him are Hon. A. H. Whitfield, for- 
merly Chief- Justice of the Supreme Court, and Hon. Sidney 
Smith, Chief-Justice of the Supreme Court of Mississippi. 

In 1911 the Preparatory School was formally separated 
from the College. It is now a distinct institution with the of- 
ficial title of the Millsaps Preparatory School. It has a sepa- 



HISTORY 23 

rate campus, buildings of its own, a faculty which conducts it 
as an independent school, and its facilities and buildings are 
described in its own catalogue. 

The facilities of the College were enlarged in 1895- 
1896 by the generosity of Major Millsaps, who gave Webster 
Science Hall, which cost more than $10,000. In 1901 Mr. Dan 
A. James, of Yazoo City, built an observatory for the College, 
in memory of his father, Mr. Peter James, and of his brother, 
Mr. Samuel James, and furnished it with a fine telescope. 
Millsaps College can thus offer unusual advantages in Astron- 
omy. In 1902, to supply the increasing demand for better dor- 
iTuitory and dining hall facilities, Major Millsaps gave the Col- 
lege the property formerly known as Jackson College, costing 
more than ?30,000. This enabled the College to fill the demands 
made on it at that time. In addition to this gift Major Mill- 
saps gave fifty acres of land immediately adjoining our campus, 
and valued at $50,000. Ample provision is thus made for the 
future expansion of the College. 

In 1906 the General Education Board offei'ed to donate, from 
the funds provided by John D. Rockefeller for Higher Educa- 
tion, $25,000, provided an additional sum of $75,000 should be 
collected from other sources, for the permanent endo.vment of 
the College. Rev. T. W. Lewis, of the North Mississippi Con- 
ference was made financial Agent of the College to collect this 
sum. In 1910 $32,279.10 had been collected for this purpose. 
Mr. I. C. Enochs, a generous citizen of Jackson, gave an ad- 
ditional $5,000. Major Millsaps, with characteristic generosity, 
contributed the remaining $37,720.90. Thus the endowment of 
the College was increased by $100,000. 

At the Commencement of 1913 Major Millsaps gave to the 
College property on Capitol Street, Jackson, valued at $150,000. 
This is the largest single gift to the College. 

The dormitory of the Preparatory School was destroyed by 
fire in 1913, but it was promptly rebuilt and made more valuable 
by alterations which also improved greatly the appearance of 



24 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

the structure. A more disastrous fire destroyed the main build- 
ing in 1914. But within a few months the old structure had been 
replaced by a far more commiodious and imposing administra- 
tion building, costing $60,000. 

The following statement of the resources of the College, 
while not inclusive of all sources of its revenues, will give some 
idea of the solidity of its foundation, and also furnishes a guar- 
antee 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 $ 623,000 

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 ef- 
ficient operation of said College, and every reasonable 
effort shall be made to bring collegiate education within 
the reach of the poorer classes of the State." 

With a productive endowment of over $300,000 and buildings 
and grounds worth $250,000, it rests on a foundation which 
assures its perpetuity. It has the support of a great religious 
denomination, yet it is not sectarian in its policy. It numbers 
among its patrons, representatives of all the Christian churches. 



HISTORY 25 

Since 1912 Millsaps College has been a member of the 
Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools, a distinction 
enjoyed by only one other institution in this State. An im- 
partial committee of the Association made exhaustive inquiry 
into the financial resources of the institution, its courses, the 
training of its instructors, and the character of its work, and 
unanimously recommended it for membership. This inquiry 
extended over a year, and no conditions whatever were im- 
posed for the election of the College, since it had been of the 
first rank for some years. Its degrees are recognized by all 
institutions of learning as among the best in the land.

ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS 31 

DEFINITJONS OF THE UNITS. 

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 organ- 
izing the courses of study. 

ENGLISH. 

The study of English in school has two main objects: (1) 
command 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 CompOr 
sition. English Grammar should ordinarily be reviewed in the 
seconday 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 
governing punctuation, the use of words, sentences, and para- 
graphs should be thoroughly mastered; and practice in comipo- 
sition, oral as well as written, should extend throughout the 
secondary-school period. Written exercises may well comprise 
letter writing, narration, desciption, and easy exposition and 
argument. It is advisable that subjects for this work be taken 
from the students' personal experience, general knowledge, and 
studies other than English, as well as from his reading in Litera- 
ture. 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. 



32 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

In connection with both lists, the student should be trained in 
reading aloud and be encouraged to commit to memory some of 
the more notable passages both in verse and in prose. As an 
aid to literary appreciation, he is further advised to acquaint 
himself with the most iituportant 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 speci- 
mens. 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, fromi each of 
which at least two selections are to be made, except as other- 
wise provided under Group I.

IV, V, XV, XVI, XVII; the Iliad, with the omission, if de- 
sired, of Books XI, XIII, XIV, XV, XVII, XXI; the Aeneid. 
The Odyssey, Iliad, and Aeneid should be read in English 
translations of recognized literary excellence. For any se- 
lection from this group a selection from any other group 
may be substituted.

ing, or other essentials of good usage. 

The examination will be divided into two parts, one of which 
will be on Granumar and Composition, and the other on Litera- 



36 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

ture. In Grammar and Composition, the candidate may be asked 
specific questions upon tlie practical essentials of these studies, 
such as the relation of the various parts of a sentence to one 
another, the construction 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 in one or more essays, 
developing a theme through several paragraphs; the subjects 
will be drawn fromi 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 pro- 
vide several subjects, perhaps eight or ten, from which the 
candidate may make his own selections. He will not be ex- 
pected to write more than four hundred words per hour.

questions designed to test such a knowledge and appreciation 
of Literature as may be gained by fulfilling the requirements 
defined under (a) Reading, above. The candidate will be re- 
quired to submdt 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 understanding of the works 
and an appreciation of their salient qualities of style. General 
questions may also be asked concerning the lives of the authors,

ANNOUNCEMENTS. 

Millsaps College is named in honor of Major R. W. Millsaps, 
whose munificent gifts have made the existence of the institu- 
tion 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 mem- 
bers of all the Christian denominations. 

LOCATION. 

Jackson, the capital of the State, and the seat of the College, 
is easily accessible by five lines of railway. Thirty passenger 
trains arrive and depart daily. The College is located in the 
northern part of the city, on a commanding elevation, with per- 
fect drainage, and in a beautiful camipus of one hundred or more 
acres. A healthier spot it would be difficult to find within the 
limits of the State. Jackson is a city of 30,000 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 superior. 

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 immiediate- 
ly adjoining our campus, has greatly enlarged our facilities. 

THE JAMES OBSERVATORY. 

Millsaps College is prepared to offer excellent advantages 
in the study of astronomy. The late Mr. Dan A. James, of Yazoo 
City, Mississippi, built an observatory for the College in 
memory of his father, Mr. Peter James, and of his brother, 
Mr. Samuel James. He also furnished the observatory with a 
fine telescope. The Observatory building and equipment has 
recently been renovated, and is in excellent order. The class 
of 1916 donated a fine photographic lens to the observatory, 
which adds materially to its equipment. 



50 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

CARNEGIE MILLSAPS LIBRARY. 

Near the close of the session of 1905-1906, Mr. Andrew Car- 
negie offered to give $15,000 for a library building if the trus- 
tees would supply an endowment of equal amount. Major Mill- 
saps added to his many contributions by giving the full amount 
of the endowment. With the income from this endowment and 
the complete A. L. A. card catalogue, the College is able to 
offer library facilities that are not surpassed in the State. Dur- 
ing the present session seventy periodicals were received in the 
reading room and eight 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 Carrollton, Mis- 
sissippi, 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 departments. 

RELIGIOUS INSTRUCTION. 

Students will be required to be present at morning worship 
in the College Chapel. In this daily service the Faculty and 
students come together to hear the reading of the sacred Scrip- 
tures and to engage in singing and prayer. Students rmust at- 
tend religious worship at least once on the Sabbath in one of 
the churches of Jackson. 

THE YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION. 

One of the most potent factors in the College for developing 
the students into a broader life is the Young Men's Christian 
Association. Its policy and aim is to develop the three-fold na- 
ture of the students — the moral, intellectual and spiritual. It 
is a well-known fact that the student who develops himself in- 



ANNOUNCEMENTS 51 

tellectually, but neglects 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 as much to mold character 
and to hold up a high standard of ideals before the students 
as 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 promiote 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 some of the students, but 
occasionally by some miember of the Faculty, or by some minis- 
ter from town. 

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

An annual revival is held some time in the year, lasting more 
than a week, which results in leading many yonug men to Christ 
each year. These services last year were conducted by Dr. J. 
L. Weber, of Memphis, Tenn., and resulted in renewing enthus- 
iasm 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 Convention are assiduously devoted to discussing 
Association work and problems, the delegates always return 
enthusiastic and zealous for doing Christian service. 



52 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 organiza- 
tion. The President, elected by the members, appoints chair- 
men 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 con- 
cerning College, boarding facilities, etc. Afterward this conumit- 
tee calls on each student and urges him to become a member 
of the Association. The Reception Committee has charge of 
College Night, and any other entertainment that the Associa- 
tion 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 new men in the different phases of College life. 
The Ennployment Committee assists deserving students in get- 
ting employment for their spare time. The City Mission Com- 
mittee has charge of work in different parts of the city. The 
Devotional Committee provides leaders, and the Music Commit- 
tee, whose Chairman is the Treasurer of the Association, col- 
lects the annual dues ($1.50) and raises funds sufficient for 
mieeting 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 each week, for discussion. The 
Mission Study Committee arranges courses in biographies of 
missionaries in various mdssion fields and secure 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. 

LITERARY SOCIETIES. 

Two large halls have been provided for the Literary So- 
cieties organized for the purpose of improvemient in debate, 



ANNOUNCEMENTS 53 

declamation, composition, and acquaintance with the methods 
of deliberative bodies. These societies are conducted by the 
students under constitutions and by-laws of their own framing. 
They are named, respectively, the Galloway and the Lamar 
societies, and contribute greatly to the improvement of their 
members. 

During the session of 1915-16 the young ladies organized a 
Literary Society, which is named the Clionian Society. 

PUBLIC LECTURES. 

With the view of promoting general culture among the 
students, and to furnish them with pleasant and profitable en- 
tertainment, a lyceum lecture course is conducted by the Col- 
lege authorities. There are 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. 

BOARDING FACILITIES. 

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

1. There are eight smiall cottages, in which students can 
board themselves at reduced cost. These cottages are admir- 
ably 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 miore 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 fronn the above that the 



54 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

necessary cost to a student living in a cottage need not exceed 
312.00 a month. Students wishing to engage a room in one of 
the cottages should write Dr. J. M. Sullivan, Treasurer, at the 
College. 

2. There are "Student Homes," capable of accommodating 
a limited number of boarders, and each is in charge of a Chris- 
tian family. These homes furnish roomi, light, board and fur- 
niture at a cost of $15.00, $16.00, $17.00 and $18.00 a month. 
Students furnish their own fuel, which costs about $5.00 a ses- 
sion. Students furnish their bedding and linen. The necessary 
cost in these homes ranges from $15.00 to $19.00 a month a 
student. Students w^ishing to engage board in one of these 
homes before coming to Millsaps to enter College should write 
the Secretary for names and addresses. 

3. Founder's Hall is open to a limited numiber of College 
students. Here the expense is only $14.00 per month, including 
room, lights, steam heat, board, matron's services ,and hospital 
facilities. Last year the cost of board was $11.50 a month. 
Students may room in the cottages and take their meals at the 
Preparatory School. There are Christian bonnes where students 
may get rooms without board. In such cases the student may 
get meals at the Preparatory School or at private homes. 

MEMORIAL COTTAGES. 

The friends of the late Rev. John A. Ellis, of the Mississippi 
Conference, and the Rev. J. H. Brooks, of the North Mississippi 
Conference, have built two cottages for the accommodation of 
students. These Homes are named, respectively, the John A. 
Ellis Cottage and the J. H. Brooks Cottage. 

ATHLETICS. 

Millsaps College is a member of the Southern Inter-colleg- 
iate Athletic Association, and takes part in all intercollegiate 
games except football. Games and sports of all kinds are under 
the special direction of the General Athletic Association, a stu- 
dent organization, whose object is to promote this class of phy- 



ANNOUNCEMENTS 55 

sical exercise. 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 pos- 
sible, entire liberty of mianagement; a strict limit is placed upon 
the character of the intercollegiate games and the number 
played away from the College. 

Our new athletic field is equipped with an excellent diamond, 
a perfect one-fourth mile cinder track, a grandstand with seat- 
ing 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 tufting, protection and 
decoration is going on steadily and will, it is estimated, cost 
two thousand dollars more. 

MATRICULATION. 

The courses of study are composed in three schools, 
two of which are academic and one professional. The former 
include the College and School of Graduate studies, the 
latter the School 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 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 timie to place their names upon the books 
of the College and the rolls of their respective classes. Lecture 
courses begin Friday, and absences will be recorded against any 
student not present from the opening lecture of each course. 

EXAMINATIONS. 

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



56 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

REPORTS. 

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 fromi lectures, and indicate, as nearly 
as practicable, the nature of the progress made by him in his 
work at the College. 

HONOR SYSTEM. 

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 compoed of seven mien 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 examina- 
tion tests, but all relations between student and professor. 



REGULATIONS. 



REGISTRATION OF NEW STUDENTS. 

Applicants seeking admission to the College for the first 
time should present themselves to the Secretary of the College 
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 
niioral character must be presented, signed by the proper of- 
ficial of the institution attended during the previous session, 
or by some person of known standing. Each candidate who 
satisfies these requirements and those for admission by diploma, 
certificate or examination, previously stated, will be furnished 
with a card containing 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 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 paymient 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 de- 
partment 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 mjust 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 appli- 
cant 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 facuty 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 preced- 
ing paragraph. 



58 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

DELAYED REGISTRATION. 

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 he admitted to registration 
only upon the consent of the President. 

RESIDENCE, ATTENDANCE and GRADE. 

The academic year begins on the morning of the second 
Wednesday of September and continues for thirty-eight weeks. 
Thanksgiving Day is a holiday, and there is a Christmas recess 
beginning on the evening of the twenty-second of December and 
continuing about ten days. 

Attendance is required of each student throughout the en- 
tire session, with the exception of the days above indicated, un- 
less 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 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 writ- 
ten 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 memibers of the organization. 

Absence of athletic teams and other student organizations 
is provided for by faculty regulations. 

Absence from classes is 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 examdnation, attested by a physician's certif- 
icate, or other cause which the faculty by special order may 



REGULATIONS 59 

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 examdnation is ex- 
cused 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 student upon the lectures (and laboratory 
or other similar exercises where included) in the course in ques- 
tion and by the faithful peformance of his work as indicated 
by the 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 cent. 

Re-examination. 

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. 

Withdrawals. 

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. 



60 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

CONDUCT. 

The rules of the College require from every student deco- 
rous, sober and upright conduct as long as he remains a member 
of the College, whether he be within the precincts or not. They 
require fromi the student regular and diligent application to his 
studies, regular attendance upon chapel and Sunday services 
at one of the churches. 

Drunkeness, gambling, and dissoluteness are strictly for- 
bidden, and any student found guilty of them is punished by 
suspension or expulsion. 

Firearms. 

The keeping of firearms by the students is strictly forbidden. 

Visiting tiie City at Night. 

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

EXPENSES.

etc., through the Treasurer may do so by simply sending check 
to Dr. J. M. Sullivan, and specifying what the enclosure is in- 
tended to cover.

PROFESSOR WATKINS. 

A general study of the Bible, with especial reference to the 
history of the Old and the New Testamients, is required of all 
undergraduate students. Advanced courses in Biblical instruc- 
tion are offered as electives in the Junior and Senior classes. 
The scope of this department will be enlarged from time to 
time as conditions favor such enlargement, but it is not de- 
signed that the courses shall take the place of the private and 
devotional study of the sacred Scriptures.

(Second Term). 

II. DEPARTMENT OF ANCIENT LANGUAGES. 

PROFESSOR KEY, 

Mr. WHITE, 

MISS McNEIL. 

It is believed that the mastery of these highly inflected 
languages will effect the purposes aimed at in education in the 
following ways: 

(a) Constant drill in the processes of correlation, comparison, 
discrimination and classification of the phenomena of 
language, required both in the study of inflection and syn- 
tax and in translation, affords a most rigorous exercise in 
correct scientiflc method and produces habits and reflexes 
of accuracy, efficiency and system. 

(b) A first-hand acquaintance with the language and modes of 
expression of the ancients and with the evolution of literary 
forms lays open a field of knowledge that is essential to a 
full understanding of modern life and literature. 

(c) Intimate contact with the very words which express the 
best ideals and aspirations of those great spirits whose 
influence has been most abiding and formative in our world 
should shape the character to fine and worthy purposes. 

LATIN. 
Courses A. and B. The college provides, without additional 
expense to the student, competent instructors in Caesar 
and Cicero for the benefit of those who need to make up 
entrance credits in these subjects. 

I. Vergil's Aeneid; Livy, selections from Books I, XXI and 
XXII. Prose Composition. Thorough drill in grammar. 
Exercises in reading and translation at sight. The aim 



DEPARTMENT OF ANCIENT LANGUAGES 77 

during this year is to gain such mastery of grammar, 
vocabulary and the Latin thought order that rapid reading 
without slavish dependence on a lexicon may be both pos- 
sible and enjoyable. Sight translation will be given on 
tests and examinations. 

II. Horace, Selected Odes and Epodes; The Elegiac Poets; 
Plays of Plautus or Terence. Mackail's Latin Literature. 
In this year some appreciation of the text as literature is 
expected. The chief meters are studied and the reading 
of the text aloud is practiced. 

III. Juvenal, Satires; Horace, Satires and Epistles; Pliny's 
Letters; Cicero's Letters; Martial's Epigrams. Private 
Life of the Romans. The aim of this course is to get at 
first hand an understanding of Roman society and organi- 
zation of life. 

IV. Lucretius, De Rerum Natura; the Sixth Aeneid, Cicero's 
Tusculan Disputations and the Dream of Scipio and De 
Senectute, with selected reading from the poets that 
reflect the common religious and philosophical beliefs of 
the Romans. 

*V. A course in methods of teaching Caesar, Cicero and 
Vergil. Especially designed for teachers and prospective 
teachers in high schools. This course is offered as a 
Senior elective; as such it may be counted toward the 
satisfaction of the requirements for teachers' license. 
Courses III and IV will be .offered in alternate years and 
either of these may be taken as a Senior elective. 

GREEK. 
Course A. Thorough mastery of the forms and syntax. Moss' 
Greek Reader. One or two books of the Anabasis. This 
course which is given under the supervision of the head 
of the department may be counted an elective. Or it may 
be used to satisfy the entrance units in foreign languages. 



*See Education III (2-b), page 84.

Mr. WHITE, 

Mr. HARRISON. 

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 labora- 
tory opens conveniently into a small fuming room outside of the 
building, 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 con- 
venient places. There is a cellar for gas and electric genera- 
tors, and for assay and other furnaces. A large lecture room 
on the second floor is soon to be supplied with modern equip- 
ment. 



DEPARTMENT OP CHEMISTRY 79 

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 
■\s 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 observant of the slightest phe- 
nonuenon, and habits of neatness, skill, and economy. Each 
student will be expected to keep accurate notes. 

Entrance credit for at least one 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 ccnaipounds, 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 Ptudy of 
the Sophomore Class for all degrees, and is a prerequisite 
to either of the other courses in chemistry.

ments. Some attention is given to physiological chemds- 
try. 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 connection with II (b), will appeal 
specially to preliminary dental and medical students. 

Lectures and recitations two hours. (Monday and Wednes- 
day.) 
Text-Book — Organic Chemdstry (Stoddard).

PROFESSOR KERN. 
Mr. O'DONNELL. 

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

Freshman. 

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 
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 throughout the year. Three hours. 

Text-Books — Woolley, Handbook of Composition; Woolley, Ex- 
ercises in English; Lamont, English Composition; Poe, 
Poems and Tales (R. L. S.) ; Poe, Prose Tales (MacMillan) ; 
Hawthorne, Twice Told Tales (Herrick-Bruere). Parallel

Stevenson, Selections (Canby-Pierce) ; Longfellow, Tales of 
a Wayside Inn (R. L. S.) ; Irving, Tales of a Traveller 
(Krapp). 

Sophomore. 

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



86 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

the Old English period to the present, preparatory to the study 
of special periods and topics. Parallel with the development of 
the literature, select poems, essays, and novels are studied. In 
the spring term a short course in Shakespeare is given, in which 
stress is laid upon plot and character development. Three 
hours. 

Text-Books — Pancoast, Standard English Poemis; Moody and 
Lovett, First View of English Literature; Stevenson, Selec- 
tions (Canby-Pierce) ; Hamlet (Chambers); Macbeth (Cham- 
bers). Parallel reading: Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities; 
Kingsley, Westward Ho; Thackeray, Henry Esmond; Rice, 
College and the Future. 

Junior. 

During the first half year the essentials of Old English 
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 Gramonar; Chaucer, The Pro- 
logue, The Knight's Tale, The Nun's Priest's Tale (Mather) ; 
Chaucer, The Tale of the Man of Lawe, etc. (Skeat); Brad- 
ley, The Making of English. Parallel reading: Bulwer-Lyt- 
ton, Harold; Kingsley, Hereward the Wake. 

Senior.

of the head of the department afford minerals and fossils for 
class study. 



88 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

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 miore dis- 
tant parts. In the last month of the year Hilgard's Geology of 
Mississippi and annual reports to the Smithsonian Institution 
and of the United States Geological Survey, are used v^rith the 
class.

DEPARTMENT OF MODERN LANGUAGES 91 

VIII. THE DEPARTMENT of MODERN LANGUAGES, 

PROFESSOR WITHERS. 

MISS MOORE. 

MISS WATKINS. 

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

A student miay 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 
without notice. 

All classes meet three times a week. 

FRENCH. 
Course A. 

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

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

Freshman. 

With the Freshman class less attention will be given to 
grammatical 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 



92 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

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 composition will be required weekly, to- 
gether 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; Dumias, Les Trois Mousquetaires; Musset, Trois 
Comedies. 

Sophomore. 

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 seventeenth century will be read. 

Text-Books — Strachey, Landmarks of French Literature; 
Corneille, Le Cid and Cinna; Racine, Andromaque and 
Iphigenie, Moliere, Les Precieuses (Ridicules) and Les 
Femmes Savantes; La Fontaine, Fables; Pascal, Les Pro- 
vinciales and Les Pensees; Lanson, Historie de la Littera- 
ture Francaise. 

Junior. 

This course will include miore difficult readings in class and 
privately from important authors of the eighteenth and nine- 
teenth centuries, with parallel assignments on political and lit- 
erary movements of the period. Much stress will be placed on 
the enlargement of the student's French vocabulary. A class 
in conversation 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; Beaumarchias, Le Barbier de 
Seville; Marivaux, Le Jeu de 1' Amour et du Hasard; Vol- 
taire, Zadig; Chateaubriand, Atala and Les Aventures du 
dernier Abencerage; Hugo, Hernani and Quatre-Vingt- 
Trieze; Loti, Pecheur d'Islande; Maupassant, Selections and 



DEPARTMENT OF MODERN LANGUAGES 93 

Coxites de Guerre; Henning, French Lyrics of the Nine- 
teenth Century; Lanson, Histoire de la Litterature Fran- 
caise; Wendell, the France of Today. 

GERMAN. 

The remarks on French will apply in the main to the courses 
offered in German. A good command of forms should be se- 
cured before the work of the Freshman year is undertaken. 
This course will include, however, a review of syntactical prin- 
ciples. The Freshman and Sophonnore courses should serve 
to widen the literary horizon of the student by helping him to 
acquire a fairly intimate acquaintance with the language, litera- 
ture, and life of the German people. 

Unless the 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. 

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

Freshman. 

Text-Books — Berntorff, A Handbook of German Grammar; Pope,

IX. DEPARTMENT OF PHILOSOPHY AND HISTORY. 

PROFESSOR LIN. 
Philosophy. 
The courses in Philosophy are designed to give an intelli- 
gent view of the constitution of the miind, and to indicate the 
conditions of all valid thought. Only what is fundamental will 
be considered, and with that in view courses in Psychology, 
Logic, and Ethics are required of all candidates for degrees. 
In addition to these a course in the History of Philosophy will 
be offered, which will be elective for all students fitted to take 
it. In this course a comprehensive view will be given of the 
results offered by the most noted thinkers who have attempted 
to frame a consistent theory of the material and spiritual world. 

♦Course I. Elements of Psychology. 
(See Education, Course II). Three hours a week, First 
Term. Required of all Juniors.

HISTORY. 
' 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 



*See Education II, 1, page 84. 



DEPARTMENT OF PHILOSOPHY AND HISTORY 95 

possible, the casual 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 pro- 
gressive organization of its moral and intellectual ideals into 
laws and customs. 

In order to undertand each people or nation studied, ac- 
count will be taken of its literature, its religious and social in- 
stitutions, its economic conditions, and the organization of its 
government. 

Entrance credit for the two units in History will be re- 
quired for entrance to this department. One of these must be 
in Ancient History, listed as "History A" in the "Entrance Re- 
quirements" printed in this Register. 

Course I. 

Three hours a week. Required of all A.B. Sophomores 
and B.S. Juniors. 

In this course the connection between the ancient world 
and the middle ages will be traced. Also an attempt will be 
made to show the origin or modern ideas in mediaeval times 
and to gain a comprehensive view of the beginnings of modern 
European states. The supplementary reading is designed to 
complete the transition to miodern society. 

Text-Book — Introduction to the Middle Ages (Emerton). 
Mediaeval Europe (Emerton). Supplementary Reading — 
Political History of Modern Europe (Schevill). 

Course II. 

Two hours a week. Elective for all Juniors. 

In this course especial stress will be laid on Modern His- 
tory 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 governmental institutions of our own and other countries, 
and as the basis of a correct understanding of the questions 
now engaging civilized nations. 



96 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

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.

Course IIL Senior elective. Two hours a week. 

This Course will be a continuation and expansion of 
Course II. It will show how the history of Europe for the past 
fifty years has led to the present war. The various aspirations 
of the European nations, as indicated both by the course of 
events and by the declarations of responsible statesmen, will 
be considered.

XI. DEPARTMENT OF SOCIAL SCIENCES. 

♦PROFESSOR 

PROFESSOR LIN. 
The aim in this department will be rather to da 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. 

ECONOMICS. 

Required of all Juniors. Two hours per week. 

This class will be conducted by recitation from a text-book, 
by discussion in class, and by reports on assigned readings and 
subjects.

THE LAW SCHOOL. 



GENERAL INFORMATION. 

In the original foundation of Millsaps College it was de- 
signed 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 camie, when, in the judgment of 
the trustees, it was possible and proper to establish the Law 
Department. Accordingly, they directed that at the beginning 
of the next session, the doors of the institution should be opened 
for the students of Law, and Professor Edward Mayes was en- 
gaged to take the active control and instruction of that class. 

Our Law School was not, even then, in any sense an ex- 
periment. 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 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 ac- 
complished 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 themselvs to the 
Hon. H. C. Conn, Chancellor, presiding over the Chancery Court, 
for examination for license to practice law in conformity with 
the requirements of the Annotated Code of 1892. They were 
subjected to a rigid written examination in open court, and 
their answers were, as the law directs, forwarded by the Chan- 
cellor to the Supreme Judges. Every applicant passed the or- 
deal successfully and received his license. We are now closing 



THE LAW SCHOOL 101 

the nineteenth 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 graduates. 

The nature of the examdnation passed, being held by the 
Chancellor in his official character, puts beyond question or 
cavil the genuineness of that result. We do not ask our patrons, 
or those who contemplate becoming our patrons, to accept any 
statement of our own. The finding and the statement are those 
of the Judicial Department of the State; and every law graduate 
of Millsaps College stands before the world endorsed, not by 
the College alone, which is much, but also by the State itself, 
speaking through its Chancellors. This is miore 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 
arguments will furnish an invaluable series of object lessons 
and an unfailing fountain of instruction to the students. Here 
also are located courts of all kinds known in the State, em- 
bracing 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 without cost. Here, too, where 
the Legislature convenes every second year, the student has an 
opportunity, without absenting himiself from his school, to wit- 
ness 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. 



102 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

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

Each student will be required to present satisfactory certi- 
ficate of good moral character. 

Each student will be required to pay a tuition fee upon en- 
trance of sixty dollars, for the session's instruction. No rebate 
of this fee will be made, because a student may desire to at- 
tend 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. Formial 
written lectures will not be read. The law is too abstruse to be 
learned In that way. The professor will accompany the ex- 
amination by running comments upon the text, illustrating and 
explaining it, and showing how the law as therein stood has 
been modified or reversed by recent adjudications and legisla- 
tion. 

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 be- 
fore the Chancery Court, and will, therefore, emibrace 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 Pleading and Evidence; (4) The Commercial Law; 



THE LAW SCHOOL 103 

(5) The Criminal Law; (6) Chancery and Chancery Pleadings; 
(7) The Statute Law of the State; (8) The Constitution of the 
State, and the Constitution of the United States. 

The object set for accomplishment by this school ar two: 

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

Secondly, to equip them for actual practice by higher range 
of legal scholarship than what is merely needed for a success- 
ful 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 simiply for ad- 
vancement 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 Bache- 
lor of Laws. On the other hand, if he prefer to postpone his 
examination for license, he can be examined by the professor 
for advancement merely, and stand his test for license at the 
hands of the court at the end of the Senior year. 



104 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

As stated above, the Senior year is designed to give to the 
student a broader and deeper culture than is needed only for 
examination for license. It is not, strictly speaking, a post- 
graduate course, since it must be taken before graduation, but 
it is a post-licentiate course, and the degree conferred at its 
conclusion represents that much legal accomplishment in excess 
of the learning needed for license to practice. 

The Senior class is required to attend the recitations of the 
Junior class by way of review, and to be prepared for daily 
questioning on the daily lessons of the Junior class. 

Moot courts will be conducted under the direction of the 
professor in charge, in which the young men will be carefully 
instructed and drilled in the practical conduct of cases.

MILLSAPS PREPARATORY SCHOOL. 

The Preparatory Department of Millsaps College was re- 
organized in 1911 into a separate school independent of the Col- 
lege 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. 

Discipline. 

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 neces- 
sary. From 7 to 9:30 at night they are required to assemible 
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 v/atchword. As far as possible, 
individual attention is given to backward and delinquent stu- 
dents. 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.
