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 IVIississippi, That John J. Wheat, Samuel M. Thames, Thomas 
J. Newell and Rufus M. Standifer, of the North Mississippi Con- 
ference of the Methodist Episcopal Church, S'outh, 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 P. 
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 
scholarships and make by-laws for the government of said Col- 
lege and its affairs, as well as for their government, and do 
and perform all other acts for the benefit of said institution and 
the promotion of its welfare that are not repugnant to the 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 accept- 
ance 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 oiffices 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 
Lis duties. 

They shall also select by lot from 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 a way and at such time as they may determine, and the 
persons so selected 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, t^s herein- 
before directed, shall be known by the corporate name set out 
in the first section of this Act, and all money, promissory notes 
and evidence of debt heretofore collected under the direction 
of said Conferences for said College shall be turned over to and 
receipted for by them in their said 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 this 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. 

S'ec. 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 made to the said Conferences from year 
to year, and their advance in that behalf taken, and every rea- 
sonable effort shall be made to bring a collegiate education with- 
in 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- 

"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. Mullen, Rev. W. C. Black, Rev. A. P. Watkins, 
Major R. W. Millsaps, Col. W. L. Nugent, and Dr. Luther Sexton. 

On December 12, 1888, the North Mississippi Conference 
met at 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 min- 
isters 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 time 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 enthu- 
siasm in our State or evoked such libered 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 respect- 
ive 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, 1893, he reported 
that the full amount had been collected to meet the terms of 
Major Millsaps' proposition, and thereupon $25,000 was imme- 
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 inaugurat- 
ed, the Church and State owe him a large debt of grati- 

The Conference 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 immedi- 
ately procured, grounds were purchased, and in a comparatively 
short time buildings were in process of erection, 


The College opened its doors for the reception of students 
in 1892 with Rev. W. B. Murrah as President, and three pro- 
fessors in the College. A Preparatory School was opened at 
the same time with one Master. From time to time its facili- 
ties have been enlarged and additional departments created, 
until it now has, in addition to its President, nine professors in 
as many departments, and the Preparatory School, now called 
the Academy and separated from the College, has grown to four 


The Presidents of the College have been Rev. W. B. Hur- 
rah, now Bishop Hurrah (1892-1910), Professor D. B. Hull (1910- 
1912), and Rev. A. F. Watkins, D.D., (1912- .) 

The unusual facilities for conducting a Law School in Jack- 
son led to the establishment in 1896, of a Law School. Hon. 
Edward Hayes, ex-Chancellor of the University of Hississippi, 
and for more than fourteen years a professor of law in that 
institution, took active control of the new school. 

In 1911 the Academy was formally separated from the Col- 
lege. It is now a distinct institution with the official title of the 
Hillsaps Academy. It has a separate campus, buldings 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 Hajor Hillsaps, who gave Webster Science 
Hall. In 1901 Hr. Dan A. James, of Yazoo City, built an 
observatory for the College, in memory of his father, Hr. 
Peter James, and of his brother, Hr. Samuel James, and fur- 
nished it with a fine telescope. Hillsaps College can thus offer 
unusual advantages in Astronomy. In 1902, to supply the in- 
creasing demand for better dormitory and dining hall facilities, 
Hajor Hillsaps gave the College 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 Hajor Hillsaps 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 High 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 Hississippi Con- 
ference was made financial agent of the College to collect this 
sum. In 1910 $32,279.10 had been collected for this purpose. 
Hr. I. C. Enochs, a generous citizen of Jackson, gave an ad- 
ditional $5,000. Hajor Hillsaps, 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 of the College. 

The dormitory of the Prepatory School was destroyed by 
fire in 1913, but it was promptly rebuilt and made more valu- 
able by alterations which also improved greatly the appearance 
of the structure. A more disastrous fire destroyed the main 
building in 1914. But within a few months the old structure had 
been replaced by a far more commodious and imposing admin- 
istration 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 $475,678 

Unproductive Endowment 43,000 

Buildings and grounds 283,942 

Value of library 15,000 

Value of Chemical, Physical and Biologi- 
cal apparatus 7,500 

Furniture and Fixtures 10,000 

Total $835,120 

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 nearly $500,000 and build- 
ings and grounds worth $280,000, 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 As- 
sociation of Colleges and Secondary Schools of the Southern 
States, a distinction enjoyed by only one other institution in this 
State. An impartial committee of the Association made exhaus- 
tive inquiry into the financial resources of the institution, its 
course, the training of its instructors, and the character of its 
work, and unanimously recommended it for membership. This 
inquiry extended over a yar, 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 rocognized by all 
institutions of learning as among the best in the land. 

PART n. 






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. Special Students. 

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

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



The unit in the 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 Registrar of the College, not later than the opening day, a 
certificate of preparation, made out on a blank form furnished by 
the College. This certificate must come from some recognized 
institution of collegiate work, 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; must give the length of time 
devoted to the course, and must give the candidate's grades in 
percentage. In the scientific courses two hours of 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 Program 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 G. 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 grammatical accur- 
acy should be rigorously exacted in connection with all written 
work during the four years. The principles of English Compo- 
sition governing punctuation, the use of words, sentences, and 
paragraphs should be thoroughly mastered; and practice in 
composition, oral as well as written, should extend throughout 
the secondary-school period. Written exercises may well com- 
prise 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 knowl- 
edge, and studies other than English, as well as from his read- 
ing in Literature. Finally, special instruction in language and 
composition should be accompanied by concerted effort of teach- 
ers 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 0. 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 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 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 book 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. 

(b) Study. 

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 
provided for study are arranged in four groups, from each 
of which one selection is to be made. 


GROUP I.— (Two to ie selected) 
The Old Testament — at least the chief narrative episodes in 
Genesis, Exodus, Joshua, Judges, Samuel, Kings, and Dan- 
iel, together with the books of Ruth and Esther. 
The Odyssey — with the omission, if desired, of Books I-V, XV, 

and XVI. 
The Aeneid. 

For any book from this group a book from any other group 
may be substituted. 

GROUP II— DRAMA. (Two to he selected) 
Shakespeare: Merchant of Venice, 
As You Like It, 
Julius Caesar. 

GROUP III— PROSE FICTION. (Two to he selected)

Irving: The Sketch Book — selections covering about 175 pages. 
IVIacaulay: Lord Clive. 
Parkman: The Oregon Trail. 

GROUP V— POETRY. {Two to he selected) 
Tennyson: The Coming of Arthur, Gareth and Lynette, Lance- 
lot and Elaine, The Passing of Arthur.

GROUP II— POETRY. {One to he selected) 
Milton: L'Allegro, II Penseroso, Comus. 

Book IV of Palgrave's Golden Treasury (First Series) with 
special attention to Wordsworth, Keats, and Shelley. 

GROUP III— ORATORY. {One to he selected) 
Burke: Speech on Conciliation with America. 
Washington's Farewell Address, Webster's First Bunker Hill 
Oration, and Lincoln's Gettysburg Address. 

GROUP IV— ESSAYS. {One to he selected) 
Macauley: Life of Johnson. 

Carlyle: Essay on Burns, with a brief selection from Burns' 



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, 

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

The examination in Literature will include: A, General 
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 submit a list of 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 authors, 
their other works, and the periods of literary history to which 
they belong.

Millsaps College is named in honor of Major R. W. Millsaps, 
whose munificent gifts have made the existence of the 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. 


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 S'tate. 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 $518,000, of which $476,- 
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 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. 



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 sixty periodicals were received in the 
reading room and three 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. Dr. J. M. Burton, 
late Professor of Romance Languages, who died in France in 
the service of his country on October 5, 1918, generously left 
to the College his entire Romance library. This has been ap- 
propriately labeled and shelved, and constitutes a valuable addi- 
tion to the books on the Romance languages. The Martha A. 
Turner Fund, founded by Mrs. J. R. Bingham, of Carrollton, 
Mississippi, is used for the purchase of books in English litera- 
ture. The students also have access to the State Library and 
the Jackson Public Library, which are unusually complete in 
many departments. 


Students will be required to be present at morning worship 
in the College Chapel. In this daily service the Faculty and 
students come together to hear the reading of the Bible and 
to engage in singing and prayer. Students must attend religious 
worship at least once on Sunday in one of the churches of 


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


Association. Its policy and aim is to develop the three-fold 
nature of the students — the moral, intellectual, and spiritual. It 
is a well known fact that a student who develops himself intel- 
lectually, but neglects his spiritual nature, is in no sense a 
complete man. Unlss 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 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 this year were conducted by 
Rev. R. H. Harper, of New Orleans, and resulted in renewing 
ing enthusiasm and in giving great stimulus to Association work. 

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 Committee 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 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 
meeting current expenses. 

But most important are the Bible Study and Mission Study 
Committees. Bible study groups are formed at the Dormitory 
and at the boarding houses. The students engage in daily Bible 
reading and meet for one hour 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 will 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-lav/s of their own framing. 
They are named, respectively, the Galloway and the Lamar 
societies, and contribute greatly to the improvement of their 



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 two 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 rooms are 
sufficiently large to accommodate two students each. The room 
rental per student in the cottages is $10.00 for the session and 
must be paid as follows: $5.00 on entrance, and $5.00 on Feb- 
ruary 1st. The coal bill a year per student is not more than 
$7.00, when two students live in one room. The boys in these 
cottages may take their meals in the college dormitory, or, if 
they prefer, may organize a cooperative club. Lights amount to 
very little. Students living in the cottages furnish their rooms. 
Furniture for one room need not cost more than $15.00. Students 
wishing to engage a room in one of the cottages should write 
Dr. J. M. Sullivan, Treasurer, at the College. 

2. In the new dormitory the expense is $24.00 per month, 
including room, lights, steam heat, board, matron's services, and 
hospital facilities. Students may room in the cottages and take 
their meals at the college dormitory. There are Christian homes 
where students may get rooms without board. In such cases 
the students may get meals at the college dormitory or at pri- 
vate homes. 

Two of the new dormitories have been completed, as shown 
by the cut next after the front cover of this Register. Thus 
provision is made for the accommodation of students in build- 
ings entirely new, and provided with every convenience. The 
buildings are steam-heated, and are provided with shower baths 
on every floor. Every room is an outside room, and is well 


The great dining room is unusually fine, and is separated 
from the large kitchens by a commodious serving room. A 
feature which will be greatly appreciated by the students is a 
large common room where the boys may gather for a social 

Millsaps now is able to offer dormitories equal in all their 
appointments to the best to be found in any institution in this 
section. The work on a third dormitory will be pushed to com- 
pletion as soon as possible. 

Two students will be expected to occupy a room. The 
charge per month for each student will be $4.00 or $5.00, accord- 
ing to the location of the room. 

Early reservation should be made if a student wishes to be 
assured of a room. A deposit of $5.00 must accompany a re- 
quest for a reservation. In the back of this Register is a slip 
which should be filled out and mailed as indicated. 


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 and the J. H. Brooks Cottage. 


Millsaps College is a member of the Southern Inter-Collegi- 
ate Athletic Association, and takes part in all intercollegiate 
games. 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. 

The Athletic Director has supervision of all intercollegiate 
teams and conducts mass games and interclass leagues that 
enlist a large percentage of the students in some form of active 
participation in athletics. For those who report regularly two 
hours a week for exercise, under the instruction of the Athletic 
Director, a scholastic credit of one session-hour is granted. 



Courses of study are offered in two schools, the College 
and the School of Graduate Studies. 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 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 six weeks 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 system the student is 
not watched by the members of the Faculty during examinations, 
but is required to pledge his honor that he has neither received 
nor given any aid during the period of examination. If a student 
is accused of cheating, he is given a full and fair trial by the 
Honor Council, which is composed of seven students 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 ex- 
amination tests, but all relations between student and professor. 




Applicants seeking admission to tlie College for the first 
time should present themselves to the Registrar 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 some person of tcnown standing. 'Each candidate who 
satisfies these requirements and those for admission by cer- 
tificate or examination, previously stated, will be furnished with 
a card containing the courses which he proposes to pursue dur- 
ing the session. The card must then be carried to the Treas- 
urer, who will, after the College fees have been paid to him, 
sign the card. On payment of these fees the applicant will be 
admitted to his classes. 

No student will 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 members 
of the College will present themselves directly to the members 
of the Faculty not later than the second day of the session and 
conform as regards the registration in their respective classes 
and payment of dues, to the requirements stated in the 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 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 members of the organization. 

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

Absence from any classes is not excused except for pro- 
longed sickness or like providential cause, and then only by 
Faculty action. 

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

Change of Classes. 

Students cannot change classes or drop classes or take up 
new classes except by 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 
question, and by the faithful performance of his work as indi- 
cated 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 
examinations. The grade for passing in any course is 70 per 


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


Voluntary withdrawals from the College require the written 
consent of the Faculty or President. 

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


The rules of the College require from every student 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, and regular attendance upon chapel and Sunday ser- 
vices 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 forbid- 


Visiting tiie City at niglit. 

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, Treasurer, and specifying what the en- 
closure is intended to cover. 


For a complete statement of fees and expenses see next 

The cost of living is fully explained under "Boarding Facili- 
ties," page 45. A temporary increase in board has been made 
to meet the present conditions. 

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

Free tuition. 

Children of itinerant preachers of the Methodist Episcopal 
Church, South, or of superannuated or active ministers of any 
Christian denomination, and young men preparing for the min- 
istry may receive tuition free in the academic department, but 
are expected to pay all other fees. Any student, wishing ex- 
emption from the payment of the tuition fee upon this ground, 
will be required to present a certificate from the Quarterly Con- 
ference or some other ecclesiastical body showing that he is 
recognized by his Church as a student preparing for the min- 

*Students remaining in the College during the summer 
months for special work in the Snimmer School will be expected 
to pay the regular room rents, provided they room in the Col- 
lege buildings.

Several Scholarships have been established, the income from 
which will be loaned to aid deserving young men in securing a 
collegiate education. For information concerning these scholar- 
ships the President or the Treasurer of the Faculty should be 
consulted. The following is a list of the scholarships at pres- 
ent available:

Instructor in Chemistry, 


The Academic Schools comprise 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 
and 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. 

The degrees of M.A. and M.S. may be conferred upon 
graduates who hold the B.A. or B.S. degree from Millsaps Col- 
lege, or from some other institution of equal rank. For the 
attainment of either degree one year of residence at Millsaps 
College is required after the attainment of the Bachelor's de- 
gree, and also satisfactory completion of advanced work to the 
amount of fifteen hours. This work must be taken in not more 
than three different subjects; a major subject, in which a min- 
imum of six hours credit must be earned; and one or two minor 
subjects to the amount of six hours credit. 

All the work of the major subject must be of an advanced 
character, to which undergraduates are not admitted. The 


minor subject or subjects may be pursued in senior college 
courses. No grade less than 80% shall be credited towards 
the requirements for the Master's degree in any subject. In 
addition to the twelve hours required as above stated, a thesis 
dealing with some phase of the major subject must be sub- 
mitted by the candidate six weeks before his graduation, and 
approved by a committee of the Faculty. In time requirements 
this shall be considered equivalent to three hours of work. 

A full outline of the required and the elective studies of- 
fered for the degrees of Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Sci- 
ence is given in the pages following this announcement. 

Sixty-four year-hours are required for graduations both for 
the B.A. and B.S'. degrees. Specific courses are prescribed in 
the Freshman and the Sophomore classes, including alternative 
courses offered in ancient and modern languages. Courses in 
the Junior and Senior classes are partially prescribed and par- 
tially elective, from eight to twelve hours of electives being 
offered in those classes. 

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 student who makes a grade of 70% in a subject will be 
advanced in that subject from class to class, but for graduation 
a total of 27 grade points is required. This completion of any 
college course with a grade of 80% for the year shall entitle a 
student to one grade point for each year-hour, and the com- 
pletion of a course with a grade of 90% for the year shall entitle 
a student to two grade points for each year-hour. 


A student who has earned 64 grade points during his course 
shall be graduated with "honors"; one who has earned 128 
grade points shall be graduated with "high honors."

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 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. 

Course I. Required of all Freshmen. Three 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.)

It is believed that the mastery of these highly inflected lan- 
guages 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 lan- 
guage is required, both in the study of inflection and syntax 
and in translation. This drill affords a most rigorous exer- 
cise 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. 


Courses A and B. The College provides, without additional ex- 
pense 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. (a) Ovid's Metamorphoses. Three hours, first term. 

(b) Selections from the Roman Historians. Three hours, 

second term. 

(c) Selected plays of Plautus and Terence. Three hours, 

third term. 


A thorough review and drill in grammar is given. Prose 
composition. Exercises in reading and translation at sight. 
The aim during this year is to gain such mastery of gram- 
mar, vocabulary and the Latin thought order that rapid 
reading without slavish dependence on a lexicon may be both 
possible and enjoyable. Sight translation will be given on 
tests and examinations. 
II. (a) The Elegiac Poets. Three hours, first term. 

(b) Horace, Selected Odes and Epodes. Three hours, sec- 

ond term. 

(c) Virgil, Selections from the Aeneid and Eclogues. Three 

hours, third term. 
Mackail's Latin Literature. In this year some apprecia- 
tion of the text as literature Is expected. Metrical structure 
is studied and the reading of the poetry aloud is practiced. 

III. (a) Juvenal, Satires. Three hours, first term. 

(b) Horace, Satires and Epistles. Three hours, second term. 

(c) Cicero's Letters, Martial's Epigrams. Three hours, third 

Private Life of the Romans. The aim of this course is 
to get at first hand an understanding of Roman society and 
organization of life. 

IV. (a) Tacitus Annals, Bks. XII-XIV. Three hours, first term. 

(b) Petronius, Trimalchio's Dinner. Three hours, second 


(c) Seneca's Essays. Three hours, third term. 
Collateral reading: Quo Vadis; Life in the Roman World 

of Nero and St. Paul. 
V. A course in methods of teaching Caesar, Cicero and Ver- 
gil. Especially designed for teachers and prospective teach- 
ers in high schools. This course is offered as a S'enior elect- 
ive; as such it may be counted toward the satisfaction of 
the requirements for teachers' license. 



Course A. Thorough mastery of the forms and syntax. 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. 
I. Xenophon's Anabasis, Books II-IV; selections from the Cy- 

Review of verb inflection and systematic study of syntax. 
Exercises in sight translation and in reading without trans- 
lation. 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.

opment of the Greek Drama. 



The rooms which are 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 spe- 
cially isolated and designed to retain delicate apparatus. The 
general laboratory opens conveniently into a small fuming room 
outside of the building, and is also connected with a storeroom. 
Gas, water, experiment tables, hoods, and pneumatic troughs are 
to be found in convenient places. There is a cellar for electric 
generators, and for assay and other furnaces. A large lecture 
room on the second floor is supplied with modern equipment for 
general 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. The 
laboratories are 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 train his hand to be careful to the smallest detail, and 
the eye observant to the slightest phenomenon, and habits of 
neatness, skill and economy. Each student will be expected to 
keep accurate notes. 

Entrance credit for at least one 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 
working knowledge of general chemistry, including a care- 
ful study of fundamental laws of chemistry, the occurrence, 
properties and preparations of the common elements and 
their compounds, and a course of chemical calculations. 
The year's work will be closed with an introductory study 
of organic chemistry. This course is a prescribed study of 
the Sophomore Class for all degrees, and is a prerequisite 
to either of the other courses in chemistry. 
Lectures and recitations, three hours. (Monday, Wednes- 
day and Friday.) 

Text-Book — General Chemistry (McPherson and Henderson.) 

Reference Books — Richter, Holleman, 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 plant, phosphate works, gas 
works, and water filtration plant. Laboratory exercises, two 
hours. (Wednesday and Thursday afternoons.) 

Text-Book — Laboratory Exercises (McPherson and Henderson.) 

II. (a) Organic Chemistry. 

The purpose of this course is to furnish a somewhat com- 
prehensive knowledge of organic chemistry, the instruc- 


tiou 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.

compound substances and mixtures, the contents being 
unknown to the student. It is a prescribed duty 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. This course will extend through the 
third quarter. 
Two hours. (Tuesday afternoon.) 

Text Book — Qualitative Analysis (Muter.)

Advanced Course — This course is intended to supplement 
course I (a). Some phase of advanced chemistry — theo- 
retical, industrial, or physical, will be taught. A brief 
study of historical chemistry will be included. This course 
is elective in the Junior or Senior 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 one or two hours. 

Text and Reference Books — Inorganic Chemistry (Remsen 
Smith, Holleman), Physical Chemistry (Jones, Walker), 
History of Chemistry (Moore.) 

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 Schorlemmer'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 Gieger for gen- 
eral excellence in scholarship in Chemistry during the Sopho- 
more year. 

Master's Degree.

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 from this department as a part of the require- 
ment for graduation, will be given, in addition to the diploma, 
a certificate 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 permission 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.

etical Works, Cambridge edition. 



A portion of the second floor of Webster Science Hall is 
occupied by this department. The Museum contains about 300 
minerals collected from various parts of the world, 200 speci- 
mens of rock presented by the United States Geological Survey, 
a fine cabinet of 300 minerals and rocks presented by Goucher 
College, and a fine collection of Mississippi rocks and fossils, all 
thoroughly indexed. The excellence of the latter is yearly in- 
creased by donations from friends of the College, and a collec- 
tion made by the Senior Class. 




I. (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 physio- 
graphic features and processes, the mechanical and chemi- 
cal effects of the atmosphere, water, heat, and of life. 
Special attention will be given to some phase of the 
subject, as the work of glaciers, of volcanoes. First term 
(second half). 

II. Historical Geology. 

In addition to general historical geology, some attention 
will be given to economic products and to paleontology. 
Second 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 of the Smithsonian Institu- 
tion and of the United States Geological Survey, are used with 
the class. 

Lectures and recitations, two hours. (Tuesday and 

Text-Books — College Geology (Chamberlain and Salisbury), Con-

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 course in Geology. 
It is aimed to enhance the value of the course by micro- 
scopic work. Four hours. 

II. 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.

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 B.A. 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.

**See Education IV, page 73. 



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 will be 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- 
stitutions, its economic conditions, and the organization of its 

Entrance credits for the two units in History will be re- 
quired for entrance to this department. One of these must be 
in Mediaeval and Modern European History, listed as "History 
B" in the "Entrance Requirements" printed in this Register. 


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

In this course especial stress will be laid on Modem 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. 

Text-Book — Modern European History (Hazen).

II. Advanced Physics. 

This course will be varied as the needs suggest, and is 
elective in the Senior year for all degrees. It is designed 
that this class especially shall keep in touch with the 
scientific progress of the day. The course during 1921- 
1922 will be devoted to a further study of Light and 
Sound. Two hours. 

Text-Book — Light and Sound (Franklin and MacNutt).

This department 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, lohen 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. 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 B.A. 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 to take more than tvv^o modern languages. 
Any course, not already counted, may be used as a Junior or 
Senior elective. 

Course A. 

A beginner's course, covering 52 lessons in Fraser and 
Squair's Shorter French Course, along with the reading of simple 
texts. Special 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 classroom activi- 
ties 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 attention. 

Course I. 

The methods of Course A will be continued according to the 
needs and aptitudes of the class. Part II of Fraser and Squair's 
French Grammar will be completed, with further drill on the 
irregular verbs and with weekly compositions. The greater por- 
tion of the time will be devoted to the careful reading 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 
and second terms 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, Mo- 
liere, 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 third 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 Frangaise, will serve to give the student a general 
idea of the development of French literature. 

Course III. 'J' '•■ f?)' •iflj'rjj?? 

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, Mussett, and Gautier. 

One hour of this course may, at the discretion of the class, 
be devoted to advanced composition and conversation. 

In addition to the courses outlined above a class in conver- 
sational French will be formed to afford students who have had 
at least one year of French an opportunity for further practice 
in speaking French. This class will meet twice a week. 


Inasmuch 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 
S'eniors in college, or to students who have completed one year 
of modern language study. Under no condition will a student 
be permitted to begin French and Spanish the same year. Two 
entrance units in Spanish will be required for admission to 
Course II. 

Course I. 

A beginner's course in grammar and reading. The class 
will be conducted along the same lines as the French work. 
Hills and Ford's First Spanish Course will be used in 1921-1922 
followed by Pittaro's Spanish Reader, Schevill's First Reader in 
S^panish, and Dorado's Espana Pintoresca. 


Course II. 

Review of syntax and verb forms with weekly prose compo- 
sition. Reading of nineteenth century prose fiction and drama 
with some work in commercial Spanish if the class desires it. 
Ramsey's Text-Book of Modern Spanish, Umphrey's Spanish 
Prose Composition, Ford's Main Currents of Spanish Literature. 




The aim of this department will be rather to do well a small 
amount 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 finan- 
cial, political, and social life and institutions. 



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. 



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 South- 
ern 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. 




During the First Term tlie origin of modern government in 
Europe and America will be considered historically. In the Sec- 
ond Term a brief course on International Law will be given. 

Text-Books — Bryce's American Commonwealth. The Govern- 
ment of England. 

*Not open to Freshmen or Sophomores. 



It is tlie purpose of the Extension Department as far as 
possible to make the resources of the College available for 
people in their homes. Many who aspire to self-culture have 
not the means or the inclination to come to college for it. To 
such the Extension Department holds out a helping hand. 

The College has a valuable equipment of books, buildings, 
and trained instructors. It is the privilege of the people to call 
for such service as the College can render; it is the duty and 
privilege of the College to devise ways and means for placing its 
service at the disposal of the people. 


Library Extension Service. — One of the most effective ways 
in which we are serving the ministers of Mississippi is in placing 
the books of our library subject to their call. We not only do 
this free of charge but we pay postage one way on any book 
that may be ordered from us. Books may be kept out for the 
period of one month. 

The Pastor's Information Bureau. — We are now collecting 
information concerning numerous problems of the pastorate. In 
a short vsrhile vv^e hope to have data on almost any question about 
which a pastor may wish to inquire. We will make this infor- 
mation available on request, and will also publish from time to 
time bulletins of information. 


Debates and Public Speaking. — The Extension Department 
provides assistance to high school pupils in the selection of 
speeches and in the preparation of debates. 

Lecturers and Commencement Orators. — Members of the 
College faculty are available for lectures and public speeches on 
commencement, anniversaries, and other public occasions. 


Judges and Referees for High School Contests. — On short 
notice the Extension Department can provide properly qualified 
judges and referees for all high school contests, athletic and 


Lecturers and Advice. — Members of the College faculty from 
time to time lecture before women's clubs. We are in position 
to provide assistance in the planning and preparation of club

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 Academy is Founder's Hall, a large 
three-story brick building, containing the assembly hall, class 
rooms, the dining hall and about fifty dormitory rooms. The 
building is steam heated and equipped with electric lights, water- 
works and all modern conveniences. 


Regulations suited to the needs of youthful 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. 


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. 

Free Tuition — (See page 52).
