The charter of Millsaps College, which was granted Feb- 
ruary 21, 1890, reads as follows: 

An ACT to incorporate Millsaps College. 

SECTION 1. Be it enacted by the Legislature of the State 
of Mississippi, That John J. Wheat, Samuel M. Tharmes, 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 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 the government of said Col- 
lege and its affairs, as well as for their government, and do 
and perforna all other acts for the benefit of said institution and 
the promotion of its welfare that are not repugnant to the Con- 
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 
In the City of Jackson, in this State, and organize by accep- 
tance of the charter and the election of Bishop Charles B. Gal- 


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 
behavior, or so long as he may be physically able to discharge 
his duties. 

They shall also select by lot fronn the lay and clerical Trus- 
tees from each of said Conferences, one-half, who shall be 
Trustees of said College for three years and until their succes- 
sors 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 hereinafter mentioned. Upon the death, resig- 
nation or removal of said Galloway, or his permanent physical 
disability to discharge the duties of his office, the said Trus- 
tees 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 next before the expiration of the term of office 
of any of their number, notify the Secretary of said Conferences 
thereof, and the vacancies shall be filled by said Conferences 
in such way and at such time as they may determine, and the 
persons so elected shall succeed to the office, place, jurisdic- 
tion, 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 mioney, 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 corporate name, and the 
payee of all such notes and evidences of debt shall endorse and 


assign the same to the corporation herein provided for, which 
shall thereafter be vested with the full legal title thereto, and 
authorized to sue for and collect the same. 

The said corporation shall have the power to select any 
appropriate town, city, or other place in this State at which 
to establish said College, and to purchase grounds not to ex- 
ceed 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 institution. 

Sec. 5. That the land or grounds not to exceed one hun- 
dred acres used by the corporation as a site and campus for 
said College, and the buildings, dormitories and halls thereon 
erected, and the endowment fund contributed to said College 
shall be exempt from all State, County and Municipal taxation 
so long as the said College shall be kept open and maintained 
for the purpose contemplated by this Act, and no longer. 

Sec. 6. That the cost of education shall, as far as practi- 
cable, be reduced by said corporation to the lowest point con- 
sistent with the efficient operation of said College, and to this 
end reports shall be miade to the said Conferences from year 
to year, and their advice in that behalf taken, and every reason- 
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 
after its passage. 

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 ac- 
cessible 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 December 12, 1888, the North Mississippi Conference 
naiet in Starkville, Mississippi, Bishop C. B. Galloway presiding. 
The Rev. T. L. Mellen appeared and reported the action taken 
by the Mississippi Conference. The following transcript from 
the North Mississippi Conference Journal gives the response 
made by that body: 

"Resolved, 1. That a 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. 

"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 propo- 


sition 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 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 tinne to time. The re- 
port submitted to the Conferences by the committee in Decem- 
ber, 1889, refers to the movement in the following language: 

"The canvass, on account of the numerous neces- 
sitated absences of Bishop Galloway from the State, 
could not be continuously carried on, but even the par- 
tial 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 enthus- 
iasm in our State or evoked such liberal offerings to 
the Lord. The fact has been demionstrated 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 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 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, ISd'o, he leported 
that the full amount had been collected to meet the terms of 
Major Millsaps' proposition, and thereupon $25,000 was invme- 
diately 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 unfailing interest in the 
great enterprise so happily and successfully inaugu- 
rated, the Church and State owe him a large debt of 

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: 










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 immiediate- 
ly procured, grounds were purchased and in a comparatively 
short time 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, G. C. Swearingen, Professor of Latin and 
Greek, and Rev. M. M. Black was chosen Principal of the Pre- 
paratory School. 

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

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

In 1894 Rev. M. M. Black resigned as Principal of the Pre- 
paratory School, the school was reorganized, and Professor R. 
S. Ricketts was elected Headmaster. E. L. Bailey was elected 
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 Department of History and 
Economiics, with 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 
Department 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 Law School. 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. 

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- 
rate camipus, 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- 
mitory 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 offered 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 endowment 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 remainin $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 
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 commodious and imposing administra- 
tion building, costing $60,000. 

In 1917 the late Mr. George W. Galloway, of Madison 
County, established a scholarship in Millsaps College to be 
known as "The Marvin Galloway Scholarship", in memory of 
his son, the late Dr. Marvin Galloway, a graduate of Millsaps 
College in the class of 1902. 

At the decease of Major Millsaps in 1916, it was found that 
he had left for the endowment of the College life insurance to 
the amount of $88,000. This final benefaction fittingly closed 
the long list of his gifts to the College. 

The following statement of the resources of the College, 
while not inclusive of all sources of its revenue, gives some 
idea of the solidity of its foundation, and also furnishes a guar- 
antee of its perpetuity: 

Productive endowment, Including revenue 

producing property $553,000 

Buildings and grounds 210,000 

Value of the Library 12,000 

Value of Chemdcal, Physical and Biological 

apparatus 8,000 

Furniture and Fixtures 4,000 

Unproductive Endowment 40,000 

Total $827,000 


One of the purposes which the College keeps constantly in 
view is indicated by the following section of the charter: 

"The cost of education shall, as far as practicable, 
be reduced to the lowest point consistent with the 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 $550,000 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. 

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 imt- 
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. 






For admission to Millsaps College, the general conditions 
are as follows: 

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

2. Adequate Preparation — As shown by the certificate of 
an accredited school, or an equivalent examination. 

Students are admitted to Millsaps College as: 

1. Full Freshmen. 

2. Conditioned Freshmen. 

3. Special Students. 

For admission as Full Freshmen, the candidate must offer 
fourteen units as specified below. Of these, three must be in 
English, two and one-half in Mathematics, and two in History. Can- 
didates for the degree of Bachelor of Arts must offer in ad- 
dition three units of Latin and one in Greek, or French, or 
German. Candidates for the degree of Bachelor of Science 
must offer four units in two foreign languages. (If one of the

or special student shall be recognized as a candidate for any 
degree from Millsaps College unless he shall have completed 
all entrance requirements at least one year before the date of 


The unit in tlie following estimate (p. 28) means a subject 
of study pursued in an academy or high school through a session 
of nine months with recitations five times a week, an average 
of forty-five lesson minutes being devoted to each recitation. 


The subjects accepted for admission and their value in 
units are given in tabulated form on the next page. Fuller 
definitions of the units follow immediately after. The appli- 
cant for admission may enter either by certificate or by ex- 

For admission by certificate, the candidate should file with 
the Secretary of the College, not later than September 13, a 
certificate of preparation, made out on a blank form furnished by 
the College. This certificate must come from somie recognized 
institution of collegiate rank, or an accredited* high school or 
academy. It must bear in all cases the signature of the head 
of the school, must specify the character and contents of each 
course offered for entrance credit; nnust give the length of time 
devoted to the course, and must give the candidate's grades in 
percentage. In the scientific courses two hours of laboratory 
instruction will be counted as the equivalent of one hour reci- 
tation. Certificate of preparation from private tutors will in 
no case be accepted. Students thus prepared must in all cases 
take the entrance examinations. 

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

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. 


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 Compo- 
sition. English Grammar should ordinarily be reviewed in the 
secondary school; and correct spelling and gramimatical 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 compo- 
sition, oral as well as written, should extend throughout the 
secondary-school period. Written exercises may well comprise 
letter writing, narration, description, 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. 
In connection with both lists, the student should be trained in 
reading aloud and be encouraged to commit to memiory 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 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 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, from each of 
which at least two selections are to be made, except as other- 
wise provided under Group I.

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.

This part of the requirement is intended as a natural and logical 
continuation of the student's earlier reading, with greater 
stress laid upon form and style, the exact meaning of words 
and phrases and the understanding of allusions. The books

However accurate in subject matter, no paper will be con- 
sidered satisfactory if seriously defective in punctuation, spell- 
ing, 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 Litera- 
ture. 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 construction of individual words in a sentence of 
reasonable difficulty, and those good usages of modern English 
which one should know in distinction fronu 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 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.

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 numibers among its patrons mem- 
bers 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 in the 
northern part of the city, on a commanding elevation, with per- 
fect 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. 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 $593,000, of which $553,- 
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 excellent advantages 
in the study of astronomiy. 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. 


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 of- 
fer library facilities that are not surpassed in the State. Dur- 
ing the present session seventy periodicals were received in 
the reading roomi and eight hundred volumes were added to the 

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 and the 
Jackson Public Library, which are 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 Scrip- 
tures and to engage in singing and prayer. Students must at- 
tend religious worship at least once on the Sabbath in one of 
the churches of Jackson. 


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- 
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 thfe 
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 some of the students, but 
occasionally by some members 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 professions. 

An annual revival is held some time in the year, lasting 
more than a week, which results in leading many young men to 
Christ each year. These services last year were conducted by 
Rev. J. Marvin Culbreth, of Nashville, Tenn., and resulted in re- 
newing enthusiasm and in giving great stimulus to Association 

The Association sends yearly a delegation to the Southern 
Students' Conference at Blue Ridge, North Carolina. Since the 
ten days of the Convention are assiduously devoted to discuss- 
ing Association work and problems, the delegates always return 
enthusiastic and zealous for doing Christian service. 


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 Comnnittee meets all new students 
as they arrive, and gives them any information desired con- 
cerning College, boarding facilities, etc. Afterward this commit- 
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 Employment Conwnittee 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 
meeting current expenses. 

But most important are the Bible Study and Mission Study 
Committees. Bible Study groups are fornned 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 mission fields and secures leaders for the 
various classes. 

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


Two large halls have been provided for the Literary So- 
cieties organized for the purpose of improvement in debate, 
declamation, composition, and acquaintance with the methods 
of deliberative bodies. These societies are conducted by the 


students under constitutions and by-laws of their own framing. 
They are named, respectively, the Galloway and the Lamar 
societies, and contribute greatly to the improvenuent of their 

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


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 


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 admir- 
ably situated on the eastern side of the campus. The roonus 
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 be- 
ginning 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 cost to a student living in a cottage need not exceed 
$12.00 a month. Students wishing to engagre a room in one of 
the cottages should write Dr. J. M. Sullivan, Treasurer, at the 


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 room, 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 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. Founder's Hall is open to a limited number of College 
students. Here the expense is only $14.00 per month, including 
room, lights, steann 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 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 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. 


Millsaps College is a member of the Southern Inter-colleg- 
iate Athletic Association, and takes part in all intercollegiate 
gamies 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- 
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 management; 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. 


The courses of study are composed in three schools, two 
of which are academic and one professional. The former in- 
clude 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 
miethods pursued. 

The session begins on the third Wednesday of September 
and continues, with recess of about ten days at Christmas, until 
the first Tuesday in June. The first two days of the session 
are given to registration, and all students, both old and new, are 
required during that time to place their names upon the books 
of the College and the rolls of their respective classes. Lecture 
courses begin Friday, and absences will be recorded against any 
student not present from the opening lecture of each course. 


The examinations in each class are held in writing. Oral 
examinations are held in some 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 student, 
are the main tests of the student's proficiency. 


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



Not the least of the educational influences of the College 
is the honor system. According to this systenu 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 examina- 
tion 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 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 
moral character must be presented, signed by the proper of- 
ficial of the institution attended during the previous session, 
or by somie person of known standing. Each candidate who 
satisfies these resuirements 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 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 de- 
partment of the Treasurer's receipt for all entrance and tuition 
fees, in no case are entrance or laboratory 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 appli- 
cant for graduation until he shall have settled with the Treas- 
urer all his indebtedness to the College. 

Students who have already been matriculated as miembers 
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 preced- 
ing paragraph. 



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


The academic year begins on the morning of the third 
Wednesday of September and continues for thirty-seven weeks. 
Thanksgiving Day is a holiday, and there is a Christmas recess 
beginning on the evening of the twenty-first 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 examiinations 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 members 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 

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 counted as a total failure in the examination in which 
it occurs. A student whose absence from examination is ex- 
cused is admdtted to the special examination ordered by the 

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. 

Cass 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 performance 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. 


A student who attains in any course an examination grade 
for the term below 60 per cent., but not below 50 per cent., is 
admitted by the faculty to a special examination at a timie 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 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 from the student regular and diligent application to his 
studies, regular attendance upon chapel and Sunday services 
at one of the churches. 

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


The keeping of firearms by the students is strictly forbidden. 

Visiting the City at Night. 

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


Parents desiring to settle all College bills, such as board, 
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.

consulted. The following is a list of the scholarships at present 


Besides these scholarships, there is a teaching scholarship in 
each of several departments, the holder of which will be expected 
to aid the head of the department in some definite work. Also 
there are two scholarships from the Jackson High School and 
one each offered by the United Daughters of the Confederacy 
and the Daughters of the American Revolution. 

The Oakley Memorial. 

Under the direction of Mrs. J. R. Bingham, of CarroUton, 
Mississippi, a fund has been raised to establish a memorial in

The Academic Schools connprise the Departments of Lan- 
guages, Mathematics, Science, History, Social Science, Litera- 
ture, Philosophy, Education and Biblical Instruction. In the 
undergraduate courses of these departments 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 Languages. 

B. S. Degree. 

The Bachelor of Science Course offers special work in 
Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics. Instead of Greek and 
partly of Latin, French, Spanish, and German are studied. In 
order to be allowed to enter upon the B. S. Course, the appli- 
cant must stand an approved examination in English, History, 
Science, Mathematics, Latin and Modern Languages. 


M. A. and M. S. Degrees. 

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 prin- 
cipal subject chosen — known as the major course — will be ex- 
pected 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 en- 
gaged in graduate study. Attention is directed to the schedule 
of degrees following and to the statement in connection with 
the amount of work done in each department. 

The candidate for the Master of Arts Degree must offer as 
a prerequisite an A.B. Degree, or 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 offer a 
B.S. Degree from Millsaps College or some other accredited 

A full outline of the requirements for the degrees of Bache- 
lor of Arts and Bachelor of Science is given below. 

Sixty-four session hours are required for graduation both 
for the A.B. and the B.S. degrees. Specific courses are pre- 
scribed in the Freshman and the Sophomore classes, and courses 
are partially prescribed in the Junior and the Senior classes, 
electives to the amount of 14 hours being offered in the Junior 
and Senior years. 

The normal course is 16 hours for each year. Not fewer 
than 12 hours nor more than 19 hours may be taken in a year, 
unless by express permission of the President and Faculty.

A general study of the Bible, with especial reference to the 
history of the Old and the New Testaments, 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 fronu 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. 

Course I. Required of all Freshmen. Two hours a week. 

(1) The Bible with Reference to the Historical 
Parts of the Old Testament. (First Term). 

(2) A General Survey of the Life of Christ. 
(Second Term). 


Course II. Elective for Juniors. Two hours a week. 

(1) The Prophets of the Old Testament. (First 

(2) A General Study of the Teachings of Jesus. 
(Second Term). 

Course III. Elective for Seniors. Two hours a week. 

CI) New Testament Introduction. (First Term). 
(2) The Sunday School Teacher Training Course. 
(Second Term). 





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 scientific 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. 

*To be chosen in May. 


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 
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 organiza- 
tion 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 re- 
flect the common religious and philosophical beliefs of the 

*V. A course in methods of teaching Caesar, Cicero and Ver- 
gil. 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. 

*See Education X, page 79. 




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. 

L Xenophon's Anabasis, Books II-IV; selections from the 

Review of verb inflection and systematic study of syntax. 
Exercises in sight translation and in reading without 
translation. The writing of simple prose. 

Constant effort is made to form proper habits of study in 
translation, without which no great progress can be made 
in ability to read. 

II. Select Orations of Lysias. Plato's Apology and Crito. De- 
mosthenes' Phillipics. History of Greek Literature. Prose 
Composition based on the text read. 

III. Thucydides, Book VIII; Herodotus, Books VI and VII. Se- 

lections from the New Testament. 

IV. Sophocles' Electra or Antigone, Aeschylus' Agamemnon. 

Aristophanes' the Clouds and Plutus. Study of the De- 
velopment of the Greek Drama. 




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 supplied with modern equipment for gen- 
eral use in science work. 

The course in this department consists of three years of 
Chemistry, one year being required of candidates for all degrees, 
while B.S. students are required in addition to take a second 
year. The subjects are taught by recitations and lectures and 
work which each student must perform in the laboratory. It 
is 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 pbe- 
nomenon, 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. 

I. (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 comm«5n elements and 
their compounds, and a course of chemical calculations. 
The year's work will be closed with an introductory study 
of organic chemistry. This course is a prescribed study of 
the Sophomore Class for all degrees, and is a prerequisite 
to either of the other courses in chemistry. 

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

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


(b) Experimental Chemistry. 

This course is given in connection with (a), and each stu- 
dent 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 estab- 
lishments, as sulphuric acid plants, phosphate works, and 
gas works, and water filtration plant. Laboratory exer- 
cises, two hours. (Thursday afternoon.) 
Text-Book — Laboratory Exercises. 

II. (a) Organic Chemistry. 

The purpose of this course is to furnish a somewhat com- 
prehensive knowledge of organic chemistry, the instruc- 
tion being given chiefly by lectures illustrated by experi- 
ments. Some attention is given to physiological chemis- 
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- 

Text-Book — Organic Chemistry (Stoddard). 

Reference Books — Norris, Bernthsen, Holleman, Cohen, Perkin 
and Kipping. 

(b) 1. 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 sub- 
ject of regular quizzes. The course will extend through 
the third quarter. 
Two hours. (Wednesday afternoon.) 
Text-Book — Qualitative Analysis (Noyes). 
Reference Books — Newth, Fresenius, Steiglitz.

(c) General Chemistry. 

(Advanced Course) — This course is intended to supplement 
course I (a). Some phase of advanced chemistry — theo- 
retical, industrial, or physical, v/ill be taught. A brief 
study of historical chemistry will be included. This course 
is elective in the Junior year, and is designed for those 
who would know more of chemistry than is possible in 
the Sophomore year. 
The course will be varied from time to time, as may be 

Lectures and recitations, two hours. (Friday.)

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 stu- 


dent will be taught to feel that the substances and apparatus 
around him are his alphabet. The teacher is constantly on hand 
to question and suggest, and in other ways to stimulate thought- 

Library copies of Watts' Revised Dictionary, Thorp's Ap- 
plied Chemistry, Roscoe and Schorlemnner's Treatise, Allen's 
Commercial Organic Analysis, Journal of the American Chemi- 
cal 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 gold medal is offered by Mr. Marvin Geiger for general 
excellence in scholarship in Chemistry during the Sophomore 

Master's Degree. 
In the post-graduate work in this department, 200 hours of 
laboratory work in the subject are required.

The courses outlined are for major subjects, and for minors 
each will be reduced one-half. 




The courses here offered are for the special benefit of stu- 
dents preparing for the profession of teaching, and have been 
approved by the State Board of Examiners of Mississippi. Can- 
didates for the bachelor's degree who present nine hours of 
work selected fromi this department as a part of the requirement 
for graduation, will be given, in addition to the diploma, a cer- 
tificate which will entitle them to Professional License without 
examination in this State. The courses are open to Sophomores, 
Juniors, and Seniors, and to Freshmen who secure special per- 
mission of the faculty. 

Before registering for courses, students should consult with 
the head of the department and indicate whether they are pre- 
paring to become teachers of special subjects, principals, or 
superintendents. The courses selected should be in line with 
the work which the prospective teacher expects to pursue after 
leaving college. 

The attention of teachers residing in Jackson and neighbor- 
ing towns is called to the opportunity of securing a renewal of 
the State License by taking our special two-hour course for 
local teachers. During the past session this course consisted 
of lectures and discussions of method, or practically a repetition

rocks and fossils, all thoroughly indexed. The excellence of the 
latter is yearly increased by donations from friends of the Col- 
lege, and a collection made by the Senior Class. 


1. (a) Mineralogy and Lithologic Geology. 

This includes a study of mineral species, crystalline forms. 
Chemical composition, occurrence and uses, with a de 
scription of the kind and arrangement of rock masses 
First term (first half). 


(b) Physiographic and Dynamic Geology. 

This portion of the course embraces the study of physiogra- 
phic features and processes, the mechanical and chemical 
effects of the atnaiosphere, water, heat, and of life. Spe- 
cial attention will be given to some phase of the subject, 
as the work of glaciers, of volcanoes. First term (second 

II. Historical Geology. 

In addition to general historical geology, some attention will 
be given to economic products and to paleontology. Sec- 
ond term. 

Course I is a prescribed study in the Senior year for the 
B.S. degree. The college museum and the private museum 
of the head of the department afford minerals and fossils for 
class study. 

Several geological expeditions regularly made in the fall 
and spring to localities easily accessible from 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 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 with the 

Lectures and recitations, two hours. (Tuesday and Thurs-

I. General Biology. 

An elective course is offered in the Junior year, including 
general work in Botany and Zoology. This course will be 
of value as preparatory work to the work in Geology. It is 
aimed to enhance the value of the course by microscopic 
work. Two hours. 

J I. Biology. 

This course will embrace General Bacteriology and can be 
taken only by those who have finished Biology I. Its pur- 
pose is to acquaint the student with some of the problems 
that confront the practical bacteriologist and to give him 
some practice in examining milk and water. Two hours. 

Text-Books — General Zoology (Linville and Kelly) ; Principles 
of Botany (Bergen and Davis); Bacteriology (Moore, Buc-

The regular work in German begins with Course I, but for 
the benefit of those students who have not been able to make 
the required preparation in this subject, a preparatory course 
(Course A) is offered. This course, if taken under the super- 
vision of the College and not used as an entrance unit, may be

used as a Junior or Senior elective. When thus used it counts 
two hours toward graduation. But all classes in German meet 
three times a week, unless otherwise specified. For entrance, 
Course I will count as two units, provided the student makes a 
grade of not less than 80. 

For graduation six hours of college work in German, French, 
or Spanish may be substituted for Greek in the A.B. course. In 
the B.S, course six additional hours of modern languages may 
be substituted for Latin, classes in the three languages offered 
being interchangeable, hour for hour. But a student should 
consult the professors in charge before so planning his course 
as to include more than two modern languages. Any course 
not otherwise counted may be used as an elective.

The courses in Philosophy are designed to give an intelli- 
gent view of the constitution of the mind, 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. 

♦Courses in Philosophy not open to Freshmen or Sophomores. 


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 comiprehensive 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 the spiritual

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

In order to understand each people or nation studied, ac- 
count will be taken of its literature, its religious and social in-

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. 


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 of 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 modern society. 

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


Three 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.

(Hayes). Supplementary Reading, The New Map of Europe 


Two hours a week. Elective for Seniors. 
This course will be devoted to the history of the United 
States. Both the constitutional history and the history of the 


people of our country will be considered, and an attempt will be 
made to show how the organization of American society and 
government developed from the history and needs of the people. 

Text-Book— A Short History of the United States (Bassett). 
Parallel readings will be assigned from time to time. 



The course in this department consists of two years of

This departnuent offers courses in French and Spanish. 

The regular work in French begins with Course I, but for the 

benefit of those who have not been able to fulfill the entrance 

requirements in this subject before entering college, a prepara- 


tory course (Course A) is offered. This course, when taken 
under the supervision of the college and not counted as an 
entrance unit, may be used as a two hour Junior or Senior 
elective. Classes meet three hours a week unless otherwise 
stated. For entrance Course I will count as two units, provided 
the student makes a grade of not less than 80. 

For graduation six hours of college work in French or Ger- 
man are accepted as a substitute for Greek in the A.B. course. 
In the B.S. course six hours of French, Spanish, or German are 
required, and six additional hours may be substituted for Latin, 
classes in these three languages being interchangeable, hour for 
hour. A student should, however, consult the professors in 
charge before planning his course, so as to include more than 
two modern languages. Any course, not already counted, may 
be used as a Junior or Senior elective. 

The schedule has been so arranged that students who plan 
to take French should begin that study in their Freshman year 
in order to avoid conflicts in their later course. 


Course A. 

A beginner's course, covering Part I of Eraser and Squair, 
French Grammar, along with the reading of simple texts. Spe- 
cial attention will be paid to the acquirement of an accurate 
pronunciation and to the training of the ear by the taking of 
simple French from dictation. The classroonu activities and wall 
pictures are used as a basis for conversation. Sight reading is 
stressed in the latter part of the year. The class will be taught 
in sections so that the student may receive more individual at- 

Course I. 

The methods of Course A will be continued according to the- 
needs and aptitudes of the class. Part II of Eraser and Squair, 
French Grammar will be completed, with further drill on the 
irregular verbs and with weekly prose compositions. The 


greater portion of the time will be devoted to the careful read- 
ing of texts from nineteenth century prose fiction and drama. 

Course II. 

Extensive reading in class and in parallel assignments, with 
special stress laid on the literary side of the works. The first 
term will be devoted to the seventeenth century in order to give 
the student some first-hand knowledge of the Golden Age of 
French Literature. The plays of Corneille, Moliere, and Racine 
will be read along with selections from the most important of 
the prose writers. Special emphasis will be laid on the social 
and political setting and on the literary ideals of the age. 

The second term will be devoted to the study of the novel 
and short story of the Realistic and Naturalistic schools of the 
nineteenth century. 

Strachey's Landmarks in French Literature supplemented 
by lectures, and by assignments from Lanson's Histoire de la 
Litterature Francaise will serve to give the student a general 
idea of the development of French literature. 

Course III. 

French Romanticism. Henning's Representative Lyrics of 
the Nineteenth Century will be used as a basis of the course. 
In addition will be read prose or dramatic works of Chateau- 
briand, Lamartine, Hugo, Musset, and Gautier. Two hours. 

Course IV. 

Advanced composition and conversation. This course will be 
adapted largely to the need of the class, and may be taken 
separately or in conjunction with Course III by any student who 
has comipleted Course II. One hour. 



In as much as only two years of Spanish can be offered, the 

courses are more advanced and both are ranked as college 

classes. Admission to Course I will be restricted to Juniors and 

Seniors in college, or to students who have completed one year 


of preparatory French or Spanish. Two entrance units in Span- 
ish will be required for admission to Course II. 

Course I. 

A beginner's course in gramnaar and reading. The class 
will be conducted along the same lines as the French work. 
DeVitis, Spanish Grammar will be used in 1917-18. 

Course II. 

Review of Syntax and verb forms with weekly prose composi- 
tion. Reading of nineteenth century prose fiction and dramp, 
with some work in commercial Spanish if the class desires it. 
DeVitis, Spanish Grammar; Umphrey, Spanish Prose Composi- 




The aim of this department will be rather to do well a small 
amiount of work than to cover a large field. Courses in Eco- 
nomics, 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. 

1. Economics. 

A comprehensive survey of the field is undertaken, dwelling 
particularly upon the laws governing the production and con- 
sumption of wealth, business organization, wages and labor, rent, 
interest, etc. Recitations, readings, and discussions. Two hours, 
both terms, 

2. Sociology. 

The fundamentals of this science will receive due attention 
during the first term. During the second term, attention will 
be concentrated upon the social problems which confront the 
Southern people in particular. A statistical investigation of 


social conditions in a Mississippi community will constitute a 
part of the course. Readings, discussions, and lectures. Two 
hours, both terms. 

3. Political Science. 

During the First Term the origin of modern government in 

Europe and America will be considered historically. In the 

Second Term a brief course on International Law will be given. 

Text-Books — The State (Wilson). Outlines of International 

.Law (Stockton). 





Committee of the Faculty. 

Millsaps College wishes to widen the range of its service to 
the people of Mississippi. We believe that the College should 
not be content to restrict its advantages to those who have the 
means to come to Millsaps, but that it should extend these ad- 
vantages to the homes of the people in all parts of the State, 
We wish to employ every means within our power to dissem- 
inate culture and to popularize learning. To this end we earnest- 
ly solicit the co-operation of all who have at heart the broaden- 
ing influence of the College. 

The work was begun this year with limited facilities, but 
several lines of activity are now being pursued, and it is hoped, 
in the course of time, not only to develop along these lines, but 
to increase the number of lines of activity. The work of the 
Extension Department during the past year may be summarized 
as follows: 

I. We have co-operated with one hundred high schools (1) 
by providing a list of questions for debate with references and 
information, (2) by encouraging the organization of literary so- 
cieties in the high schools, (3) by arranging for a series of high 
school debates to be held in the College auditorium. 


n. We have co-operated with a numiber of communities 
by providing public lectures by our faculty members under the 
auspices of schools, clubs, and churches. 

in. The Department of Education has conducted a special 
course in Methods of Teaching for the benefit of Jackson teach- 
ers. Forty-two teachers were enrolled in this course. 

The Department will welcome suggestions for the enlarge- 
ment of its service to the people of the State. We can furnish 
lecturers for school commencements, anniversary occasions, etc. 
We can furnish expert advice along scientific and literary lines, 
and along the line of school organization. We can provide 
teachers for the public schools, and athletic umpires and referees. 
We will with pleasure give prompt attention to all such requests 
that comie to us. Address, 

Millsaps College, 
Jackson, Mississippi.

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




Former Chief-Justice of the Supreme Court; for three and a 

half years Professor of Law in the State University. 

Chief-Justice Mississippi Supreme Court. 
The work of the school will be distributed between the in- 
structors as follows: 

1. PROFESSOR WHITFIELD— The Law of Evidence; Crim- 
inal Law; Criminal Procedure; Law of Corporations; Con- 
stitutional Law; Federal Courts, Jurisdiction and Practice;

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 
a Theological School. 

In the year 1896, the time came, when, in the judgment of 
the trustees, it was possible and proper to establish the Law 
Department. Accordingly, they directed that at the beginning 
of the next session, the doors of 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 'ectures, 
thus adding greatly to the interest and variety of instruction 

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 themslves to the 
Hon. H. C. Conn, ChancUor, 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 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 ninety-one graduates. 

The nature of the examination passed, being held by the 
Chancellor in his ofiicial 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 Departmient of the State; and every law graduate 
of Millsaps College stands before the world endorsed, not by 
the College alone, which is much, but also by the State itself, 
speaking through its Chancellors. This is more than can be 
said for any other young 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, the privileges of 
which each student may enjoy without cost. Here, too, where 
the Legislature convenes every second year, the student has an 
opportunity, without absenting himself from his school, to 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. 

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- 
mentary 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 cer- 
tificate 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 of 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 text-books. Formal 
written lectures will not be read. The law is too abstruse to be 
learned in that way. The professor will accompany the ex- 
amdnation 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 legis- 

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, embrace all the 
titles prescribed by law for that examination, viz.: (1) The 
Law of Real Property; (2) The Law of Personal Property; (3) 
The Law of Pleading and Evidence; (4) The Commercial Law; 
(5) The Criminal Law; (6) Chancery and Chancery Pleadings; 
(7) The Statute Law of the State; (8) The Constitution of the 
State, and the Constitution of the United States. 

The objects set for accomplishment by this school are two: 


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

Secondly, to equip them for actual practice by a higher 
range of legal scholarship than what is merely needed for a 
successful 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 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. 

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.

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 dormdtory rooms. 
The building is steam heated and equipped with electric lights, 
water-works and all modern conveniences. 


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 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 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. 

Tuition ($20.00 payable upon entrance and $20.00 the first 

of February) $40.00 

Incidental fee 5.00 

Library fee 1.00 

Lyceum Course fee 1.00

The Preparatory students are expected to furnish their own 
furniture, which may be purchased after arrival, under super- 
vision of the Head Master. 

Each student should bring with him four sheets for a double 
bed, blankets or quilts, a pillow with cases, and six towels.
