for the benefit of said institution and the promotion of its wel- 
fare that are not repugnant to the Constitution and laws of 
this State and of the United States, subject, however, to the 
approval of the said 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 offices of Vice-President, 
Secretary and Treasurer, and shall prescribe the duties, pow- 
ers and terms of office of all said officers, except as to the 
terms of their said President, who shall hold office during life 
or good behavior, or so long as he may be physically able to 
discharge his duties. 

They shall also select by lot from the lay and clerical trus- 
tees from each of said Conferences one-half, who shall be 
trustees of said College for three years and until their succes- 



24 MILLS APS COLLEGE 

sors are elected, and the other half not so selected shall re- 
main in office for the term of six years and until their succes- 
sors are chosen, as hereinafter mentioned. Upon the death,

Trustees may elect their President and prescribe his duties, 
powers and term of office. 

Sec. 3. That the said Trustees shall, before the meeting 
of said Conference next before the expiration of the term of 
office of any of their number, notify the secretary of said Con- 
ferences thereof, and the vacancies shall be filled by said Con- 
ferences in such a way and at such time as they may deter- 
mine, and the persons so selected shall succeed to the office, 
place, jurisdiction and powers of the Trustees whose terms of

lege 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 un-

dorse 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 exceed 
one hundred acres as a building site and campus therefor, and 
erect thereon such buildings, dormitories and halls as they 
may think expedient and proper to subserve the purposes of 
their organization and the best interest of said institution, and 
they may invite propositions from any city or town or individ- 
ual in the State for such grounds, and may accept donations 
or grants of land for the site of said institution. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 25 

Sec. 5. That the land or grounds not to exceed one hun- 
dred acres used by the corporation as a site and a 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 taxa- 
tion so long as the said College shall be kept open and main- 
tained for the purpose contemplated by this Act, and no longer. 

Sec. 6. That the cost of education shall, as far as prac- 
ticable, 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 advice in that behalf taken, and every rea- 
sonable effort shall be made to bring a collegiate education 
within reach and ability of the poorer classes of the State. 

Sec. 7. That this Act take effect and be in force from 
and after its passage. 

The College has its origin in the general policy of the 
Methodist Church to maintain its 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 fol- 
lowing resolutions were adopted by a large majority of the 
Conference: 

"Resolved, 1. That a college for males under 
the auspices and control of the Methodist Episcopal 
Church, South, ought to be established at some cen- 
tral and accessible point in the State of Mississippi. 

"2. That a committee of three laymen and 
three preachers be appointed to confer with a like 
committee to be appointed by the North Mississippi 
Conference to formulate plans and to receive offers 
of donations of land, buildings or money for that 
purpose, and report to the next session of this Con- 
ference." 

In accordance with this action, the President of the Con- 
ference, Bishop R. K. Hargrove appointed the following com- 



26 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

mittee: Rev. T. L. Mellen, Rev. W. C. Black, Rev. A. F. Wat- 
kins, Major R. W. Millsaps, CoL W. L. NYigent and Dr. Luther 
Sexton. 

On December 12, 1888, the North Mississippi Conference 
met at Starkville, Mississippi, Bishop C. B. Galloway presid- 
ing. The Rev. T. L. Mellen appeared and reported the action 
taken by the Mississippi Conference. The following tran- 
script 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 Meth- 
odist Episcopal Church, South. 

"That a committee of three laymen and three 
ministers be appointed to confer with a like com- 
mittee already appointed by the Mississippi Confer- 
ence." 

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 di- 
rect origin of the College 

The joint commissions constituted by the action summar- 
ized above met in the City of Jackson in January, 1889. The 
Rev. Dr. J. J. Wheat was called to the chair. In stating the 
purpose of the meeting he made a stirring appeal in behalf of 
the proposition to establish a Methodist College in Mississippi 
for the education of young men. In response to this earnest 
appeal, Major R. W. Millsaps, a member of the commission, 
proposed to give $50,000 to endow the institution, provided 
the Methodists of Mississippi would give a sum equal to this 
amount for said purpose. This proposition was enthusiasti- 
cally approved, and after a plan of procedure was adopted, 
Bishop Charles B. Galloway was invited to conduct a campaign 
in the interest of the proposed endowment fund. 

Under the direction of this distinguished leader, the most 
gratifying progress was reported from time to time. The re- 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 27 

port submitted to the Conferences by the committee in Decem- 
ber, 1^*89, refers to the movement in the following language: 

"The canvass, on account of the numerous ne- 
cessitated absences of Bishop Galloway from the 
State, could not be continuously carried on, but even 
the partial canvass made, embracing not more than 
one-fifth of our territory, resulted in the most grati- 
fying and encouraging success. The interest awak- 
ened in the enterprise has extended beyond the limits 
of our own Church, and is felt by every denomina- 
tion of Christians, and by every section of the State. 
It is safe to say that no effort of Methodism has ever 
kindled such enthusiasm in our State or evoked such 
liberal offerings to the Lord. The fact has been 
demonstrated that the Church is profoundly con- 
vinced that the College is an absolute necessity." 
The report continues: 

"So high is the appreciation of the value of the 
proposed institution that numerous towns in the 
State have entered into earnest competition to se- 
cure the location of the college within the limits of 
their respective borders, offering from $10,000 to 
$36,000, and from twenty to eighty acres of land." 

In December, 1889, the Rev. A. F. Watkins, a member of 
the Mississippi Conference, was appointed a special agent to 
co-operate with Bishop Galloway in all matters pertaining to 
the endowment of the proposed College. As the work of 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 appoint- 
ed agent for the College, and on December 30, 1893, he re- 
ported that the full amount had been collected to meet the 
terms of Major Millsaps' proposition, and thereupon $25,000 
was immediately paid by Major Millsaps to the Executive Com- 
mittee and the following resolution was adopted: 

"Resolved, That the Executive Committee return 
our most heartfelt thanks to Major R. W. Millsaps 



28 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

for his second gift of $25,000, this day turned over 
to us. For his princely liberality, and unfailing in- 
terest in the great enterprise so happily and suc- 
cessfully inaugurated, the Church and State owe him 
a large debt of gratitude." 

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: 

BISHOP CHARLES B. GALLOWAY, President 

REV. W. C. BLACK, D.D. REV. S. M. THAMES 

Rev. T. L. Mellen REV. T. J. NEWELL 

REV. A. F. WATKINS REV. C. G. ANT)REWS, D.D. 

REV. R. M. STANDIFER HON. G. D. SHANDS 

MAJ. R. W. MILLSAPS CAPT. D. L. SWEATMAN 

COL. W. L. NUGENT MR. J. B. STREATER 

DR. LUTHER SEXTON MR. JOHN TRICE 

HON. M. M. EVANS REV. J. J. WHEAT, D.D. 

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 Wi- 
nona, 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 build- 
ing were immediately 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 189 2 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, twenty-two pro- 
fessors in fourteen departments. 

The Presidents of the College have been W. B. Murrah, 
D.D., LL.D., later Bishop Murrah (1892-1910), D. C. Hull, 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 29 

M.A., (1910-1912), A. F. Watkins, D.D., (1912-1923), and 
D. M. Key, Ph.D., LL.D., (1923 ). 

The unusual facilities for conducting a Law School in 
Jackson led to the establishment in 189 6, of a Law School. 
Hon. Edward Mayes, ex-Chancellor of the University of Mis- 
sissippi, and for more than fourteen years a professor of law 
in that institution, took active control of the new school. In 
1918 it was discontinued. 

In 1911 the Academy was formally separated from the 
College. It was made a distinct institution with the official 
title of the Millsaps Academy. In 1922 it was discontinued. 

The facilities of the College were enlarged in 1895-1896 
by the generosity of Major Millsaps, who gave Webster Science 
Hall. In 1901 Mr. Dan A. James, of Yazoo City built an ob- 
servatory 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 un- 
usual advantages in astronomy. In 1902, to supply the in- 
creasing demand for better dormitory and dining hall facili- 
ties. Major Millsaps gave the College the property formerly 
known as Jackson College. This enabled the College to fill 
the demands made on it at that time. In addition to this gift 
Major Millsaps gave fifty acres of land immediately adjoin- 
ing our campus. 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 
Education, $25,000, provided an additional sum of $75,000.00 
should be collected from other sources, for the permanent en- 
dowment of the College. Rev. T. W. Lewis, of the North 
Mississippi Conference was made financial agent of the Col- 
lege to collect this sum. In 1910, $32,279.10 had been col- 
lected for this purpose. Mr. I. C. Enochs, a generous citizen 
of Jackson, gave an additional $5,000. Major Millsaps with 
characteristic generosity, contributed the remaining $37,- 
720.90. Thus the endowment of the College was increased 
hy $100,000. 



30 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

In 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, hut was promptly rebuilt and made more val- 
uable by alterations which also improved greatly the eppear- 
ance 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 administration building. 

At the decease of Major R. W. 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. 

During the Christian Education Campaign of 19 21 Mr. W. 
S. F. Tatum, a generous layman of Hattiesburg, donated 
$100,000 to the College for the establishment of the Depart- 
ment of Religious Education. The Board of Trustees accept- 
ed the gift, giving the department the name of the generous 
donor. Later, in 1923 Mr. Tatum, realizing the growing im- 
portance of this field in the church college, added $25,000 to 
the sum at first given by him. By these gifts he created the 
first separately endowed department in the college. The de- 
partment was organized at the opening of the session of 1921- 
'22, with Professor C. A. Bowen in charge. Provision was 
made in the deed of gifts for the employment of an Associate 
Professor, and Millsaps College now has two professors in this 
department. The work of this department has grown in 
scope and effectiveness until it is now recognized as doing a 
leading work in the Methodist Church in this field. It is to 
be hoped that others will see the opportunity for promoting 
instruction in particular subjects by endowing other depart- 
ments. The Science Departments, the History Department, 
the Department of Education, and the Carnegie-Millsaps Libra- 
ry are, because of their needs, promising fields for a fruitful 
investment in Christian Education. 

In 1926 the number of women students had increased to 
such an extent that it became necessary to provide housing ac- 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 31 

commodations on the college campus, and the Sullivan House 
which had been removed in order to make room for the new 
Carnegie-Millsaps Library, was fitted up and equipped for this 
purpose. During the session of 1928-29, a second building, a 
new apartment house on "West street was leased and furnished 
as a home for young women. It immediately became appar- 
ent, however, that this provision is inadequate and will have 
to be enlarged. Plans are now on foot by which it is expected 
that adequate provisions will be made for all young women 
now in the College and for those who may enter the Junior or 
Senior Class. It will not be possible to admit young women 
not residents of Jackson to the Freshman or Sophomore Class. 

Since the foundation of the old library had so given away 
as to make the building unsafe, the Carnegie Library Board 
agreed in 19 23 to rebuild the Library on a new site, and to 
provide a larger one more nearly adequate to the needs of the 
college, which had grown greatly since the original Library 
was built. So a new Library costing $60,000.00 became 
available in 1925-1926. 

In 19 2 6 and again in 19 2 7 the Conferences took action 
approving and endorsing the purpose of the college to make a 
special appeal for the enlargement and improvement of the 
psysical equipment. In the spring of 19 2 8 this appeal was 
begun and some $268,000 in subscriptions was secured. This 
amount included a number of gifts of considerable sums in- 
cluding $50,000 from B. B. Jones who had previously given 
$20,000 to the endowment, $15,000 from W. M. Bule, whose 
previous gifts have amounted to $28,300; and $15,000 from 
I. C. Enochs family. At the next Annual Conference, Rev. V. 
G. Clifford was appointed as financial commissioner who de- 
voted his time to the raising of funds for the completion of 
the buildings needed. As a result of the subscriptions already 
made, a magnificent science building costing about $180,000 
has been erected. 

Since 1912 Millsaps College has been a member of the 
Association of Colleges and Secondary School of the Southern 
States. An impartial committee of the Association made ex- 
haustive inquiry into the financial resources of the institution, 
its courses, the training of its instructors, and the character of 



32 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

its work, and unanimously recommended it for membership. 
This inquiry extended over a year, and no conditions whatever 
were imposed 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. 

The College is also a member of the Association of Ameri- 
can Colleges, and of the American Association of Collegiate 
Registrars. 

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 
guaranty of its perpetuity: 

Productive endowment, including reve- 
nue producing property $ 948,101.54 

Unproductive endowment (land) 100,000.00 

Buildings 311,000.00 

Grounds 227,071.18 

Books, Equipment, etc 75,000.00 

New Construction 223,811.10 

TOTAL ..$1,884,9 83.82 

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 practica- 
ble, be reduced to the lowest point consistent with 
the efficient operation of said College, and every rea- 
sonable effort shall be made to bring collegiate edu- 
cation within the reach of the poorer classes of the 
State." 

With a productive endowment of $948,101.54, and build- 
ings and grounds worth $761,882.28, 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 Chris- 
tian churches.

MILLSAPS COLLEGE 39 

GENERAL INFORMATION 

Millsaps College is named in honor of Major R. W. Mill- 
saps, whose munificent gifts have made the existence of the 
Institution possible.. The College is the property of the Meth- 
odist Episcopal Church, South, and was organized by the con- 
current action of the Mississippi and North Mississippi Confer- 
ences. It is not sectarian, however, but numbers among its 
patrons members of all the Christian denominations. 

LOCATION 

Jackson, the capital of the state, and the seat of the Col- 
lege, is easily accessible by five lines of railway. Thirty pas- 
senger trains arrive and depart daily. The College is located 
In the northern part of the city on a commanding elevation, 
with perfect drainage, and in a beautiful campus of one hun- 
dred or more acres. A healthier spot it would be difficult to 
find within the limits of the State. Jackson is a city of 48,000 
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 JAMES OBSERVATORY 

Millsaps College is prepared to offer excellent advantage* 
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 class of 1916 donated a fine photographic 
lens to the observatory. A two inch prismatic transit has re- 
cently been added to the equipment. 



CARNEGIE MILLSAPS LEBRART 

Near the close of the session of 1905-1906, Mr. Andrew 
Carnegie offered to give $15,000 for a library building if the 
trustees would supply an endowment of equal amount. Major 
Millsaps added to his many contributions by giving the full 
amount of the endowment. 



40 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

The foundations of this handsome building unfortunate- 
ly gave way so that it became necessary to rebuild the struc- 
ture, and the Carnegie Corporation has generously appro- 
priated $50,000.00 for this purpose. The books are cata- 
logued fully by the A. L. A. system and are in charge of Mrs. 
M. B. Clark a trained and experienced librarian. 

From time to time additions have been made from the en- 
dowment funds and from the Library fees. 

In addition to the books thus obtained, the library has 
been so fortunate as to secure most of the well selected libra- 
ries 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 Ed- 
ward 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 li- 
brary. This has been appropriately labeled and shelved, and 
constitutes a valuable addition to the books on Romance Lan- 
guages. The Martha A. Turner Fund, founded by Mrs. J. R. 
Bingham, of Carrollton, Mississippi, is used for the purchase 
of books in English literature. Through the generosity of 
Hon. W. S. F. Tatum a fine collection of books has been built 
up for the use of the Department of Religion. 

Mrs. Charles B. Galloway made a notable addition to our 
collection of valuable books by giving to the College the fine 
theological library of the lamented Bishop Charles B. Gallo- 
way. 

The students also have access to the State Library and 
the Jackson Public Library, which are unusually complete in 
many departments. 

RELIGIOUS INSTRUCTION 

Students will be required to be present at morning wor- 
ship 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 



MILLS APS COLLEGE 41 

religious worship at least once on Sunday in one of the 
churches of Jackson. 

THE YOUNG >EEX'S CHRISTLA.N ASSOCIATION 

One of the most potent factors in the College for develop- 
ing the students into a broader life is the Young Men's Chris- 
tian Association. Its policy and aim is to develop the three- 
fold nature of the students — the moral, intellectual, and spirit- 
ual. It is a well known fact that a student who develops him- 
self intellectually, but neglects his 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. 

In this connection the association was organized shortly 
after the College was founded. It has done as much to mould 
character and to hold up a high standard of ideals before the 
students as any other department in connection with the Col- 
lege. 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 As- 
sociation 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 mem- 
bers 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 Wed- 
nesday evenings. These services are usually conducted by 
some of the students, but occasionally by some member of the 
Faculty, or by some prominent minister or layman. 

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 profes- 
sion 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 young men to 
Christ each year. During the current year a spiritual life con- 



42 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

ference contributed very much to the religious life of the stu- 
dents. 

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

The work of the Association is carried on by the students; 
each man has his part to do according to the plan of the organ- 
ization. The President, elected by the members, appoints 
chairmen of nine committees, each composed of three or more 
men. It is the duty of the Publicity Committee to advertise 
all meetings, and secure good attendance. The Membership 
Committee meets all new students as they arrive, and gives 
them any information desired concerning College, boarding 
facilities, etc. Afterward this committee calls on each stu- 
dent and urges him to become a member of the Association. 
The Reception Committee has charge of College Night, and 
any other entertainment that the Association may choose to 
give during the year. The object of College Night is to make 
the students acquainted with one another and to interest the 
new man in the different phases of College life. The Em- 
ployment Committee assists deserving students in getting em- 
ployment for their spare time. The City Mission Committee 
has charge of work in different parts of the city. The Devo- 
tional Committee provides leaders, and the Music Committee, 
whose Chairman is the tresaurer of the Association, collects 
the annual dues and raises funds sufficient for meeting cur- 
rent expenses. 

But most important are the Bible Study and Mission 
Study Committees. Bible study groups are formed at the dor- 
mitories 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. A student Volunteer 
Band is organized and is active in preparation for mission 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 48 

work. Delegates are sent each year to the Volunteer Con- 
vention, and the College is now represented in the foreign 
field by a number of efficient missionaries. 

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 organization. 

THE YOUNG WOMEN'S CHRISTLIN ASSOCIATION 

The Young Women's Christian Association plays the same 
part in the lives of the young women of the college as is played 
by the Y. M. C. A. in the lives of the men. It exerts a pro- 
found influence for good on the whole college. 

Religious services are held by the Y. W. C. A. each week, 
a period being set apart in the college programme of exercises 
for that purpose. The Association sends each year a delegate 
to Blue Ridge. The girls of the college have in the Y. W. C. A. 
all the advantages offered by that organization in the best col- 
leges for women. 

The Freshman Commission constitutes those who are in 
training for position as future officers of the Association. 

LITERARY SOCIETIES 

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 fram- 
ing. They are named respectively, the Galloway and the La- 
mar Societies, and contribute greatly to the improvement of 
their members. 

Representatives chosen from the societies engage in in- 
tercollegiate debate with teams from the other colleges of the 
state and also other institutions. In recent years there have 
been debates with Emory University, Birmingham Southern 
College, Vanderbilt University, Centenary College, and others. 
In 19 25-'26 Millsaps debate teams won every one of the six 



44 MILLS APS COLLEGE 

debates engaged in, and since that time have won a majority 
of their contests. 

STUDENT PUBLICATIONS 

There are two literary publications which have an excel- 
lent standing among the student publications of the South, 
viz., the Purple and White, the campus weekly, and the Col- 
lege annual, the Bobashela. 

HONORARY FRATERNITIES 

Student leadership in college activities is signalized and 
rewarded by election to various honorary fraternities. Liter- 
ary ability among the men of the college leads to member- 
ship in the Kit-Kat Chapter of the national literary frater- 
nity, Sigma Upsilon. Similar ability among the co-eds leada 
to membership in Chi Delta Phi, a national literary honor so- 
ciety for women. Excellence in scholarship is given recog- 
nition by election to Eta Sigma. Pi Kappa Delta recognizes 
the leaders in oratory and debate at Millsaps. Student lead- 
ership, of whatever kind, is recognized by membership in 
Omicron Delta Kappa, an intercollegiate leadership fraternity. 
Membership in this organization is regarded as a great honor. 
Excellence in dramatics at Millsaps, as manifested by partici- 
pation in the dramas presented by the Millsaps Players, leads 
to association with Alpha Psi Omega, the youngest honorary 
fraternity on the campus and one of the livest. Such honors 
as those mentioned above are much sought after in our insti- 
tution, and cause students to attain a high degree of excel- 
lence in their chosen fields of student activity. 

MUSICAL ORGANIZATIONS 

For a number of years there have been two excellent glee 
clubs, the men's glee club under the direction of Dr. A. P. 
Hamilton, and the women's glee club under the direction of 
Miss Magnolia Simpson. An excellent band has been organ- 
ized, the student body raising some $1,200.00 for instruments 
and equipment, and it has made rapid progress. The students 
of the Fine Arts Department have organized the Beethoven 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 45 

Club, and presented some excellent programs, privately and 
publicly. 

Several other voluntary organizations, such as the Science 
Club, and the Classical Club, give expressions to collateral 
scholarly interests outside the regular curriculum, 

ATHLETICS 

Millsaps College is a member of the Southern Intercolle- 
giate Athletic Association, and the Dixie Conference, and takes 
part in all intercollegiate games. Games and sports of all 
kinds are under the special direction of the General Athletic 
Association, a student organization, whose object is to pro- 
mote this class of physical exercise. The faculty exercises a 
general advisory control endeavoring to foresee and avert dan- 
gerous tendencies or excess in physical exercises while giving 
to the students as far as possible, entire liberty of manage- 
ment; a strict limit is placed upon the character of the inter- 
collegiate games and the number played away from the Col- 
lege. 

The Athletic Director has supervision of all intercolle- 
giate 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 instruc- 
tion of the Athletic Director, a scholastic credit of one session- 
hour is granted. 

BOARDING FACTLITIES 

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 
room at reduced cost. These cottages are provided with the 
same furniture provided for dormitory rooms. The cottages 
are admirably 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 $27.00 
per year in advance or $15.00 per half year in advance. 



46 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

Lights, fuel, and water are furnished except to families using 
apartments. Students wishing to engage a room in one of 
the cottages should write Mr. V. B. Hathorn, at the college. 

2. In the dormitories the expense will be approximate- 
ly $22.00 to $25.00 per month including room, light, steam 
heat, board, matron's services, and hospital facilities. The 
dining room is conducted on the cooperative plan. During 
1930-'31 the cost amounted to approximately $17.00 per 
month. 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. 

3. Since the formation of the Whitworth-Millsaps Sys- 
tem and the recent development of a number of excellent 
State Junior colleges in Mississippi, the number of women 
students in the junior and senior classes of Millsaps has in- 
creased to such an extent that the college has provided liv- 
ing quarters for women. This is at present done in a num- 
ber of cottage homes providing accommodations for twelve 
to fifteen young women. These are comfortably furnished 
and in each is provided reception rooms and apartment for a 
house mother. All non resident women students will be re- 
quired to reside in the home provided by the college and to 
conform to the regulations of the dean of women. Room 
rent in these homes in $90.00 per year and board $20.00 per 
month. 

THE DORMITORIES 

Founder's Hall is a three story structure, beautifully lo- 
cated on the east campus facing State Street. At the South 
end of the campus and overlooking the city with the beautiful 
dome of the New Capitol in the foreground are Burton Hall 
and Galloway Hall. These handsome buildings with their 
columned porticoes are connected by a colonnade. 

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 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 47 

a large common room where the boys may gather for a social 
hour. 

Millsaps now is able to offer dormitories equal in all their 
appointments to the best to be found in any institution in this 
section. Each student should bring with him four sheets for 
a single bed, blankets, or quilts, a pillow with cases, and six 
towels. 

No change of rooms will be allowed except by permission 
of the President. 

Early reservation should be made if a student wishes to 
be assured of a room. A deposit of $5.00 must accompany a 
request for a reservation. Students entering college for the 
first time are entitled to reserve a room upon payment of the 
Registration fee of $15.00. 

A home for young women on the College campus under 
the supervision of the Matron and the Dean of Women has 
been provided and newly furnished, and adequate provision 
will be made to accommodate all out of town young women 
who are accepted. 

MEMORLOi COTTAGES 

The friends of the late Rev. John A. Ellis, of the Missis- 
sippi Conference, and the Rev. J. H. Brooks, of North Mis- 
sissippi Conference, have built two cottages for the accommo- 
dation of students. These homes are named respectively, the 
John A. Ellis, and J. H. Brooks Cottage. 

»LATRICULATIOX 

The various departments are under the direction of pro- 
fessors who are responsible for the systems and methods pur- 
sued. 

The session begins on the second Wednesday of Septem- 
ber 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 



48 MILLS APS COLLEGE 

the books of the College and the rolls of their respective 
classes. Lecture courses begin Friday, and absences will be 
recorded against any student not present from the opening 
lecture of each course. 

EXAMINATIONS 

The examinations in each class are held in writing. Oral 
examinations are held in some departments but they are aux- 
iliary 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 

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

REGISTRATION OP NEW STUDENTS 

Applicants seeking admission to the College for the first 
time should present themselves to the Registrar of the College 
at his office in the main building promptly at 9:00 o'clock on 
the opening day, September 14th. In each instance a certifi- 
cate of good moral character, signed by the proper official of 
the institution attended during the previous session, or by 
some persons of known standing, must be sent to the Regis- 
trar at least two weeks before the opening of the session. 
Each candidate who satisfies these requirements and those 
for admission by certificate or examination will be furnished 
with a card containing the courses offered, from which he 
may select those which he proposes to pursue during the ses- 
sion. The card must then be carried to the Bursar, who will, 
after the College fees have been paid to him, sign the card. 
Registration is incomplete unless the registration card is 
signed by both the Registrar and the Bursar. On payment of 
these fees the applicant will be admitted to classes. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 49 

DELAYED REGISTRATION 

Students are not permitted to delay their registration 
through carelessness or for inadequate reasons. Any student 
new or old, who fails to present himself for registration dur- 
ing the first two days of the session will be admitted to regis- 
tration only upon the consent of the President, and will be 
required to pay a special fee of $3.00. 

RESIDENCE, ATTENDANCE, AND GRADES 

The Academic year begins on the morning of the second 
Wednesday of September and continues for thirty-six weeks. 
Thanksgiving Day is a holiday, and there is a Christmas re- 
cess of about ten days. 

Attendance is required of each student throughout the 
session, with the exception of the days above indicated, unless 
he has received permission to be temporarily absent, or to 
withdraw before its close. Leave of absence is granted by the 
Faculty or President for sufficient reasons, and must in every 
case be obtained in advance. While in residence each student 
is required to attend regularly all lectures and other pre- 
scribed exercises and all examinations in the courses which he 
pursues, (unless excused for cause), and in every way to con- 
form to the regulations of the College. 

Absence from the College is permitted only upon the 
leave of the Dean, obtained in every case in advance. But 
leave 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 organi- 
zations. 

Absence of athletic teams and other student organiza- 
tions is provided for by Faculty regulations. 

Absence from any class is not excused except for sickness 
or like providential cause. But absences, whether excused or 
not, from one-fourth or more of the recitation period in any 
term will result in proportionate decrease of credits allowed. 

Absence from examinations will not be excused except 
for sickness on day of examination, attested by a physician's 



50 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

certificate, or other cause which the Faculty by special order 
may approve. An unexcused absence or presentation of an 
unpledged paper is counted as a total failure in the examina- 
tion in which it occurs. A student whose absence from ex- 
amination is excused is admitted to the special examination 
ordered by the Faculty. 

Change of Classes. 

Students cannot change classes or drop classes or take up 
new classes except by the consent of the Faculty. 

The grade of the student in any class, either for a semes- 
ter or for the session is determined by the combined class 
standing and the result of examination. The daily average 
counts 60% and the examination 40% of the grade for the 
semester. If the combined grade is below 70 the student is 
required to repeat the course, except in courses where the 
grades for the two semesters may be averaged. 

Those reported delinquent in two or more subjects at any 
faculty meeting are required to report to Coaching School from 
7:30 to 9:30 in the evening of the following two weeks. 

Class standing in any course is determined by the regu- 
larity of attendance of the student upon lectures and labora- 
tory or other similar exercises where included in the course 
in question and by the faithful performance of his work as 
indicated by the answers when questioned, by written exer- 
cises, note books, the faithful performance of laboratory or 
other similar work, etc. Students are regarded by the facul- 
ty as under the law of honor in matters affecting class stand- 
ing or in examinations. The grade for passing in any course 
is 70 per cent. For quality requirements see page 68. 

Withdrawals. 

Voluntary withdrawals from the College require the writ- 
ten consent of the Faculty or President. 

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



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 51 

The College reserves the right to cancel the registration 
of any student at any time. In such a case, the prorata por- 
tion of board, room rent, and tuition will be returned. 

Extension Work. 

It is the purpose of the Extension work 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. 

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. 

AID TO METHODIST MINISTERS 

Idbrary Extension Service. — One of the most effective 
ways in which we are serving the ministers of Mississippi is in 
placing the books of our libiary 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. 

AID TO HIGH SCHOOL PUPELS AND TEACHERS 

Debates and Public Speaking. — The College provides as- 
sistance for high school pupils in the selection of speeches and 
In the preparation of debates. 

Lectures 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 College can provide properly qualified judges and 
referees for high school contests, athletic and literary. 

AH) TO CLUB WOMEN 

Lectures and Advice. — Members of the College faculty 
from time to time lecture before women's clubs. We are in 



52 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

position to provide assistance in the planning and preparation^ 
of club programs. 

CONDUCT 

The rules of the College require from every student de- 
corous, sober and upright conduct as long as he remains a 
member of the College, whether he be within its precincts or 
not. 

They require from the student regular and diligent appli- 
cation to his studies, and regular attendance upon chapel. 

Drinking, gambling, and dissoluteness are strictly forbid- 
den, and any student found guilty of them is punished by sus- 
pension or expulsion. 

Firearms. 

The keeping of firearms by the students is strictly for- 
bidden. 

Visiting the City at Night. 

Students who are delinquent in their studies are forbid- 
den to visit the town, or other places away from the College at 
night, without permission from the President. 

Delinquency. 

Reports are made each two weeks of all those failing dur- 
ing the preceding two weeks in each subject. The names of 
those delinquent are posted and notice is sent to the parent or 
guardian. 

Those students who do not pass in as many as three sub- 
jects during a semester, except Freshmen, who must pass two 
subjects and make 60 in a third for the first semester shall 
be dismissed from College. 

Demerit System. 

1. The demerit system is used. Demerits are incurred by 
unexcused absence from class, chapel, and for other vio- 
lations of the college regulations, such as hazing and oth- 
er offences. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 53 

2. When a student has received an aggregate of thirty-five 
demerits he is called before the Faculty and warned. A 
notice of the same will be sent to his parent or guardian. 

3. When the aggregate of demerits reaches sixty-five, he re- 
ceives a second warning, and a second notice is sent to his 
parent or guardian. 

4. When the aggregate of demerits reaches one hundred, he 
is dismissed from the College. 

EXPENSES 

Parents desiring to settle all College bills, such as board, 
etc., through the Treasurer may do so by simply sending 
check to Mr. V. B. Hathorn, Bursar, and specifying what the 
enclosure is intended to cover. 

FEES, TUITION, AND BOARD 
FEES 

No student will be admitted into any class of the College 
except upon presentation to the instructor of the Bursar's re-

One hundred and twenty-eight semester hours are re- 
quired for graduation both for the B.A. and B.S. degrees. 
Specific courses are prescribed in the Freshman and the Soph- 
omore classes, including alternative courses offered in ancient

be advanced in that subject, but a certain number of quality 
points is requisite for advancement from one class to the next 
higher class. The student must have six quality points to be 
classed as a Sophomore, 22 to be classed as a Junior, 42 to be 
classed as a Senior, and 64 for graduation. The completion 
of any college course with a grade of 80% for one semester 
shall entitle a student to one quality point for each semester 
hour, and the completion of a course with a grade of 90% for 
the semester shall entitle a student to two quality points for 
each semester hour.

I. DEPARTMENT OF ANCIENT LANGUAGES 

PROFESSOR HAMILTON 

PROFESSOR KEY 

ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR HUDDLESTON * 

ASSISTANT PROFESSOR SIMPSON 

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

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 re- 
flexes of accuracy, efficiency and system. 

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. 

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

The Department of Chemistry is now well provided for 
in the new and thoroughly modern Science Hall, which was 
recently built as a gift from citizens of Jackson and Hinds 
County at a cost of approximately $200,000.00. There are 
two lecture rooms supplied with tablet-arm chairs fixed in 
elevated rows, improved lecture desks with Alberene stone 
tops and removable down-draft hoods, sliding blackboards 
with separate control for lighting, and other conveniences. 
There are four large laboratories, one for general chemistry 
provided with five double desks eighteen feet long to accom- 
modate 140 students in three sections (and piping roughed-in 
for two more desks as needed), one for organic and qualita- 
tive work provided with five double desks eighteen feet long 
to accommodate seventy individuals (provision being made 
for expansion), one for quantitative analysis equipped for 
fourteen students, (expansion provided for), and one for in- 
dustrial chemistry. There are three smaller laboratories for 
physical chemistry, nitrogen determinations, and research, re- 
spectively, besides six small laboratory rooms for individual 
and specialized work. All desks have Alberene tops and 
sinks, with lead trough inclined in one direction the entire 
length, and are supplied with an adequate number of outlets 
for water, gas, compressed air, and 110-volt electric current. 

All laboratory hoods are of the high velocity and open- 
type made of Transite board on Alberene shelf supported on 
steel pipe frame, and range from four to eight feet in length. 
Each hood is provided with outlets for water, gas, compressed 
air, and 30-ampere electric current, with separate control for 
lighting fixture attached to ceiling of hood. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 79 

All horizontal drain pipes from chemical laboratories and 
stockrooms are of Duriron. All floors are of "mastic," and 
lecture-room ceilings are of Masonite board which eliminates 
practically all echo. 

Three stockrooms, one for apparatus, one for inorganic 
and one for organic chemicals, are located on the ground floor 
convenient to a freight elevator. Two departmental stock- 
rooms are located conveniently, one on the main floor and 
connecting by service window directly with the laboratory for 
general chemistry, and the other immediately above with serv- 
ice window connecting directly with the qualitative and or- 
ganic laboratory. The weighing room is located between the 
laboratories for quantitative and physical chemistry. 

Distilled water is supplied by gravity through block-tin 
pipe to laboratories on each floor and to lecture table. 

The seven motors and fans that produce the ventilation 
for hoods and chemical laboratories are located in the attic, 
each motor controlling a separate group of hoods and its oper- 
ation indicated at each control switch by a pilot-light signal. 

The head of the department is provided with a well equip- 
ped office and adjoining private laboratory, which latter con- 
nects directly with his lecture room. 

The work in this department includes one year of Chem- 
istry required of candidates for B.S. degree, besides other 
courses open to all students who have completed chemistry 
11-12. 

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 neces- 
sary to the correct appreciation of the science. Each student 
has his own desk and apparatus, and is closely supervised, so 
that he may not only gain a true idea of the substance under 
inspection but also train his hands to be careful to the smallest 
detail, and the eye observant of the slightest phenomenon, 
and habits of neatness, skill and economy. Each student will 
be expected to keep accurate notes. In all courses attention

ASSISTANT PROFESSOR HAYNES 

MR. KIMBALL 

MR. C. N. BRADLEY 

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, and emphasis will be laid on the idea that his- 
tory is a record of the continuous development of the human 
race, whose growing self-consciousness manifests itself in the 
progressive organization of its moral and intellectual ideals 
into laws and customs. 

In order to understand each people or nation studied, ac- 
count will be taken of its literature, its racial composition, its 
religious and social institutions, its economic condition, and 
the organization of its government. 

11. History of Europe 378-1776. 

In this course an attempt will be made to show that the 
problems and ideal of modern nations grow out of their his- 
tory. This will be done as a preparation for the study of the 
governmental institutions of our own and other countries, and 
as the basis for a correct understanding of the questions now 
engaging civilized nations. Required of all Freshmen.

* X. THE DEPARTMENT OF PHILOSOPHY 

PROFESSOR LIN 

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. 

In Logic both deductive and inductive logic will be given, 
but neither course will receive credit for graduation unless it 
is supplemented by the other course in this subject. In the 
History of Philosophy a comprehensive view will be given of 
the results attained by the greatest thinkers who have at- 
tempted to frame a consistent theory of the material and the 
spiritual world. One course in pre-christian ethips will be 
given, and one in the ethics of recent times. As in Logic, 
both courses must be taken in order to receive credit for either 
looking to graduation. It is recommended that Logic be tak- 
en before either Ethics or the History of Philosophy is at- 
tempted.

physical work are designed to cover the whole school year at 
the rate of two hours a week for each Freshman. Although 
this work is compulsory, considerable freedom in selection is 
offered. The sole aim is to create a healthy desire to engage 
in some form of recreation, under proper supervision, so as to 
benefit the student morally, mentally, and physically. This 
exercise takes form of competitive games in order to arouse 
the proper interest, develop team work, teach initiative, 
strengthen the morale, teach true sportsmanship, and create a 
life-long interest in some form of sport which will benefit the 
student in after life. An idea is also gained as to the natural 
ability of each man and quite frequently students discover 
that they are really better in athletics than they thought they 
were and are encouraged to try for the varsity teams. 

Physical Education for AVomen. General gymnastics (light 
apparatus) ; rhythmic plays and games. Tumbling, Pyramid- 
building, etc; developmental and corrective gymnastics. Spring

course will comprise football, baseball, basketball and track. 
Two hours a week of classroom work will be given, which will 
also include a number of lectures. 

In football, subjects such as the equipment and outfitting 
of players, training units, practice methods, various offensive 
and defensive methods, the forward pass, trick plays, general-

The aim of this Department is to provide an adequate 
and varied series of courses of instruction in Religion, includ- 
ing Bible and Religious Education, in harmony with the best 
methods and ideals of education in the general field of reli- 
gion and true to the spirit and genius of Methodism. 

The courses are designed to meet the curriculum require- 
ments of the College, for one required course in Religion, and 
as wide a range of elective courses as possible for students 
majoring or electing additional work in the Department. The 
vocations of the Church have been kept in mind in offering 
these courses, and also its avocational interests. The modern 
programme of the Church makes heavy demands upon its lay 
workers for trained service. These courses, therefore, are 
available and valuable alike for students interested in profes- 
sional or lay service in the Church. 

Millsaps students who are qualified are in demand in the 
summer for Cokesbury Training School work in both the Mis- 
sissippi Conferences. This Department seeks to co-operate 
with the Conference and General Boards in this important 
work and offers credit courses for most of the requirements. 

Upon completion of twenty-four semester hours in Reli- 
gion the Joint Diploma in Christian Education is given by the 
College in co-operation with the General Board of Christian 
Education of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South. 

Students transferring to Millsaps from other schools and 
admitted to advanced standing, but who may lack the six se- 
mester hours required in Religion, may be permitted to take 
either Religion 11 and 12, as required of Freshmen or Soph-

omores, or they may elect the required number of hours in 
the Department, after consultation with the Professor in 
charge. 

Courses 11 and 12 are required for graduation and may 
be taken in either Freshman or Sophomore year, and may be 
begun in either first or second semester or possibly in summer 
school. These two courses are pre-requisite to all other 
courses in the Department. Where other pre-requisites are 
Bet up, they must be strictly observed. All courses carry three 
semester hours credit; classes meeting three times per week 
as scheduled. 

11. Introductory Bible; New Testament: a course designed 
to give necessary backgrounds for intelligent study and 
appreciation of the Bible; the spirit and genius of the 
Christian Religion; a brief survey of the New Testament. 
Both semesters; open to Freshmen or Sophomores.

The aim of this department will be rather to do well a 
small amount of work than to cover a large field. Courses in 
Economics, Political Science, and Sociology will be offered.

XVI. DEPARTMENT OF MUSIC 

MRS. J. L. ROBERTS, 

Professor of Piano 
MR. FRANK SLATER 

Professor of Voice 

Millsaps College made careful provision for the session of 
1929-30 to meet the demand for recognition of musical study 
among the students by establishing a department where stu- 
dents may receive a course similar to that offered in the very 
best conservatories. The cultural value of music has been 
definitely recognized at Millsaps during the present session, in 
the development of this department. As modern advance- 
ments in general education work have left a strong impress 
on all matters pertaining to music, the system of teaching as 
pursued in Millsaps College will be based on the most pro- 
gressive and enlightened art principles. It embraces regular 
studio work in: 

Piano 
Voice 
Public School Music 

There will also be a theoretical department with a curri- 
culum embracing Theory, Ear-training, Harmony, History, Ap- 
preciation of Music and Counterpoint. Adequate training to 
fit students for teaching and concert work is offered through 
its practical and theoretical courses in music, and the affil- 
iated studies in college work. A certain prescribed College 
Course is required for students taking a Bachelor of Music. 

Credit up to twelve hours may be offered toward A.B., 
and B.S. Degrees for theoretical and practical work in Music. 
Candidates for college degrees who elect music as a major 
will be required to complete the junior requirements in piano. 

Pupils may be enrolled as special students in the Depart- 
ment of Music without registering for degree. 

Candidates for degrees, however, are required to take 
prescribed college courses. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 121 

No student will be allowed to major in any department of 
music until he or she has completed the Sophomore year. The 
student will consult the Director about the advisability of 
majoring in the subject chosen. 

Upon completion of the Sophomore work, each student 
will be expected to select a major subject, and will be required 
to complete a total of twelve hours in this leading subject. 

The musical attractions of Jackson, faculty recitals, and 
student recitals many times during the year, will be of aid in 
rounding out the musical study and growth of the students. 

Opera. — Opera is given each season by the Music Week 

Association in which a remarkable opportunity is given tal- 
ented vocal students to learn operatic roles. 

Radio. — Realizing that radio has become one of the most 
important mediums for the dissemination of good music, the 
school cooperates with the local broadcasting station in mak- 
ing available to radio audiences, programs of the highest ar- 
tistic excellence. 

The Annual Summer School and Summer Master Classes 
will begin June 14, 1932, and continue to August 16, 1932. 
All departments of the school are open and students may enter 
at anytime if they do not care to enroll for full courses. 

The public is now demanding the same standardization in 
the profession of music that obtains in the other professions. 
No student becomes a thorough musician by devoting himself 
to merely one branch of his art, and it is evidence that the 
well-equipped musician is more likely to win commercial and 
artistic success, than the one who has been merely taught to 
Ring and play. 

DEPARTMENT OF PIANOFORTE 
Piano — Mrs. J. L. Roberts 

The methods of instruction have undergone remarkable 
changes during the quarter century just passed. Modern ad- 
vancement in general educational work could not but leave a 



122 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

strong impress on all matters pertaining to music, and espe- 
cially upon piano training. The progressive teacher aims to 
make the study of the piano less irksome to the pupil, to cul- 
tivate capacity for musical thinking and hearing, to study in- 
telligently and at the same time develop a technique which 
meets all the requirements of modern piano playing. 

Plan of Instruction. 

It being the object of the Millsaps Department of Music 
to educate the student upon a well-regulated, comprehensive, 
and inclusive plan, the course of study has been divided into 
the following departments: 

1. Collegiate (Freshman) 

2. Collegiate (Sophomore) 

3. Collegiate (Junior) 

4. Collegiate (Senior) — B.M. Degree 

Al. Preparatory Course. 

Elements of pianoforte playing, including hand culture, 
touch, notation, together with melody construction, rhythm 
study, elementary harmony, ear training. Simple scales, ma-

nical exercises used according to individual needs. A limited 
number of etudes by representative composers; sonatinas and

smaller compositions by Handel, Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, and 
others; selections from the easier work of Schumann, Grieg, 
Kullak, Reinecke, and modern standard composers. 

A3. Intermediate Course. 

Further development of technique, including major and 
minor scales in various forms, chords, arpeggios, octaves, etc. 
A limited number of etudes from the best authors, such as 
Heller, Czerny, Bertini, Duvernoy, Loeschorn; little preludes 
and easier compositions by Bach, some two part inventions by

DEPART3IENT OF PUBLIC SCHOOL MUSIC 

Music as a regularly incorporated branch of the Public 
School curriculum is no longer debatable, as is shown by the 
constantly increasing demand for teachers trained for this 
particular work. 

The courses in Public School Music are intended to pro- 
vide the broad, thorough training without which successful 
teaching and consequent adequate results, according to stand- 
ard methods are impossible. 



130 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

Theoretical Department. Outline of Study. 

To learn to listen to music and think tones, .and tonal 
combinations, should be the aim of every sincere and ambi- 
tious student. 

To this end, the Music Department of Millsaps College 
has worked out a strong theoretical course. The system of 
teaching harmony is to enable pupils to have a working knowl- 
edge of its principles, to train them to harmonize, recognize 
chords by sight and sound, modulate and transpose. Every 
student in the department of music must take the course as 
outlined. 

Without the study of these, Theory, Harmony, Counter- 
point, Composition, History and Appreciation of Music, the 
practical side must be less intelligent, emotional and beautiful 
in effect.

Class Piano Instruction 

Class Piano Instruction lias been growing by leaps and 
bounds within recent years, and experiments over a period of 
nearly ten years have demonstrated its success from every 
standpoint, economical, social and educational. W. Otto 
Miessner, formerly Director of the Milwaukee Normal School 
of Music, is the originator of a unique method of class piano 
teaching, known as the Melody Way which is used in many 
public schools and in many conservatories and colleges. 

n. Intermediate Department 

Pupils are accepted from the beginning and also received 
In any grade for which they are qualified and promoted ac- 
cording to their progress. 

III. Special Students 

Persons who wish to pursue studies as a cultured activity 
without registering as candidates for certificates, diplomas or 
degrees, may enter as special students for the purpose of de- 
veloping their talents under the instruction of a most excel- 
lent faculty and to derive musical and educational inspiration 
through association with a large body of serious minded stu- 
dents. In this department, students may register for any 
study or combination of studies desired. No specific scholas- 
tic requirements are imposed as a condition of entrance. 

Special students desiring credit for such work as they 
may take are subject to the same examinations and regula- 
tions as full course students. All credits earned are entered 
on the school records and may be used toward credentials at 
a later time, should such students eventually become candi- 
dates for graduation. 

Students wishing to enter upon the study of music mere- 
ly as an accomplishment are not required to take up a stated 
course, nor to fulfill the stated entrance requirements and les- 
sons, whether private or in class, may be engaged without en- 
tailing the regular course examinations. Such pupils are en- 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 133 

titled to all the free advantages of the Department and to Cer- 
tificates of Proficiency, but not to its Diplomas or Certificates. 

IV. Full Course Students 

In this classification are placed all students who register 
as candidates for: 

Degree-Bachelor of Music — Post-graduate 

Certificate in Public School Music 

PLAN OF INSTRUCTION 

It being the object of the Millsaps Department of Music 
to educate the student upon a well-regulated, comprehensive, 
and inclusive plan, the course of study has been divided into 
the following divisions: 

I. Intermediate. 
II. Certificate. 
III. Bachelor of Music. 

Department I above offers thorough training in the fun- 
damentals of music in all branches. 

Departments II and III comprise the academic courses 
leading to Certificates, Diplomas and Degrees and are subject 
to entrance and graduation requirements. 

Requirements for Entrance 

The time required for graduations cannot always be de- 
termined in advance on account of the wide difference in the 
qualifications of students on entering as well as difference in 
their capacity and industry. Work completed in other insti- 
tutions of accredited standing will be recognized toward grad- 
uation. Transferred credits in academic subjects and in His- 
tory of Music, required for graduation in the Millsaps Depart- 
ment of Music, will be given full credit. Transferred credits 
in applied music (performance, instrument or voice), and 
theoretical subjects will receive credit subject to examination 



134 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

or to continued study in subjects of similar content. Students 
who expect certificates in music must offer fifteen units from 
an accredited high school. 

Candidates for Bachelor of Music must complete in a 
creditable manner the full requirements for four years in the 
departments of piano with the prescribed theoretical courses, 
together with the requirements for a degree in Millsaps Col- 
lege. 

General examinations in all subjects both major and sup- 
plementary, are held at the end of each semester. The scale 
of marking is uniform for subjects: A — excellent; B — good; 
C — fair; D — poor; E — failure. The passing mark is C. A 
mark of D involves a condition which must be removed be- 
fore the next succeeding examination in the respective course 
may be taken. Re-examination will be given only to remove 
conditions. 

Attendance: 

Four unexcused absences from private lessons and two 
from class lessons per semester must not be exceeded. More 
than these must be justified by a written excuse signed by the 
Dean physician or, in cases of students residing in the city, by 
parent or guardian. Any student who is absent without 
proper excuse beyond the allowed number of times will be 
disqualified for examination or credit for that course. 

Each member of the faculty has been chosen with great 
care, the personnel comprising teachers who combine excep- 
tional talent with fine elements of character. The high stand- 
ard of conscientious, enthusiastic teaching which has made 
such a splendid name for this college is steadily maintained.

136 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

Pupils' Recitals 

Pupils preparing themselves for a public career, as soon 
as they are sufficiently advanced, receive here the training 
necessary. To play or sing successfully before an audience is 
an art in itself, and can be learned in only one way — by fre- 
quent public appearances. Pupils who acquit themselves 
satisfactorily are afforded opportunity to appear In these con- 
certs and recitals. The first appearance is usually made be- 
fore an audience limited to pupils. Confidence once estab- 
lished, the student is accorded the privilege of appearing in 
the public entertainments. 

Advantages : 

Student Recitals — Student recitals by pupils in all grades 
from juvenile to seniors are given constantly throughout the 
year. Special training in state deportment is given in these 
recitals.

GENERAL STATEMENT 

The Summer School of Millsaps College for 1932 will 
open on June 14 and will continue for nine weeks. 

The Summer School is planned especially for college stu- 
dents and for teachers who desire further professional work 
or regular college work. Teachers may secure renewal of li- 
cense by attendance for nine weeks. Entrance units and tran- 
scripts will be required of all new students. 

In opening its doors to the teachers of the State, Mill- 
saps College feels that it is serving a long felt need in that 
some provision should be made at the Capital of the State for 
teachers to spend a few weeks during their vacation and at the 
same time take such work as they may find in the list of 
courses. 

All the advantages of the other summer schools will be 
afforded in the way of renewal and extension of license pro- 
vided by the State Department of Education. 

College graduates who lack the required number of hours 
in Education will find, here, an opportunity to make up some 
of those hours. Students with two years of college training 
may, with six hours in Education, be granted a temporary 
State License without examination by the State Board of Ex- 
aminers. 



142 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

The amount of work that a student may take will be lim- 
ited to three subjects with a total credit of nine semester 
hours. 

There will be a series of lectures by special lecturers from 
time to time. Announcement will be made beforehand. 

The tuition fee will be $35.00 and a matriculation fee of 
$5.00 will be charged. Board will be $25.00 or $26.00 per 
month, or at the rate of $8.00 per week. For a period of less 
than a week the rate will be $1.50 per day. Science fee, 
$10.00. Library fee $2.00. Science breakage fee, $2.00 for 
each course, unused portion returned. Those who expect to 
live on the campus will bring with them a pillow, bed-linen, 
towels, and toilet articles. The dormitories and dining hall 
will be open on the evening of June 8. Fees and board pay- 
able strictly in advance. 

Those expecting to enter the Summer School should make 
reservation of room by sending to the Director a deposit of 
$5.00.

144 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

Whitworth College, located in the beautiful little city of 
Brookhaven, has a long and honorable history in the educa- 
tion of Mississippi women. Traditions of piety, learning, and 
culture of more than a half century enshrine the cg,mpus and 
historic community. The college may be reached by the Illi- 
nois Central, the Mississippi Central and the Brookhaven and 
Pearl River Railroads. Situated in the most elevated region 
of southern Mississippi (489.5 feet above sea level) the com- 
munity has an enviable record for health, while at the same 
time the mild southern climate renders out door exercise pos- 
sible and enjoyable at all seasons. The college occupies a 
beautiful campus where nine buildings, six of them built of 
the famous Brookhaven brick, constitute the most complete 
physical plant of any woman's college in the State. 

With this admirable physical setting, the college is now 
excellently equipped in plant, faculty, and academic organiza- 
tion for thorough work. In accordance with the action taken 
by the Mississippi Conference on the fourteenth day of Novem- 
ber, 1927, the physical plant and all the resources of the col- 
lege have been taken over by the Board of Trustees of Mill- 
saps College and Whitworth College is now being operated as 
a coordinate Junior College Division of the Millsaps Collegiate 
system. In 1927, the Association of Colleges and Secondary 
Schools of the Southern States admitted Whitworth College to 
full membership. The college is also a member of the South- 
ern Association of Colleges for Women and of the American 
Association of Junior Colleges. The courses of study for the 
Freshman and Sophomore years are the same as those offered 
in the Freshman and Sophomore years of Millsaps College as 
indicated on page 68 of this catalogue. A maximum of three 
year hours in home economics and three year hours in fine 
arts may, however, be counted toward the bachelor's degree. 
Other courses, not leading to the B.A. or B.S. degree, are of- 
fered in home economics, in fine arts and in education. Those 
completing these courses will be awarded a certificate of grad- 
uation. Young women who wish to work towards the Mill- 
saps B.A. or B.S. degree will be enrolled in Whitworth Col- 
lege for the first two years of the course. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 146 

CLASSIFICATION 

Students will be classed and given membership into Col- 
lege classes under the following conditions: 

Freshmen must have at least fifteen entrance units to 
their credit and carry work equivalent to fifteen hours. For 
sophomore classification the attainment of one of the Whit- 
worth College Diplomas at the end of the school year must 
be possible, and the student's schedule must be arranged ac- 
cordingly.
