MILLSAPS COLLEGE 3 

TRIBUTE TO THE FOUNDER 

Reuben Webster Millsaps, the Founder of Millsaps Col- 
lege, was born In Copiah County, Mississippi, on May 30th, 
1833. The Millsaps family originally came from Wales, and 
Reuben Millsaps and Lavinia Millsaps, the parents of Major 
Millsaps, came to Mississippi from Georgia. There seem to 
have been several brothers who came to Mississippi about the 
same time, and the group settled near Hazlehurst. The im- 
mediate family of Major Millsaps owned a plantation in Pleas- 
ant Valley, near Brown's Wells. There were nine children 
in the family and Major Millsaps was the second son. He is 
said to have been the favorite son of his father, and the tie 
between Major Millsaps and his mother was unusually strong 
and sympathetic. 

This second son became notable for his ability at an early 
age. At that time it was the custom of planters in interior 
Mississippi to send their cotton by wagon train to Natchez and 
to market it there. Reuben Millsaps had frequently taken his 
little son with him on such trips, and the boy evinced such 
interest and ability that he was trusted when only twelve years 
of age to take charge of the wagons and market the cotton, 
collecting the money due in gold, and bringing it safely home 
to Pleasant Valley. Trusty slaves drove the wagons and han- 
dled the cargo, and they of course made the camp when the 
caravan stopped overnight going and coming. This little boy 
each night dug a hole and hid his gold in it, sleeping over the 
treasure to guard against the robbers who frequently waylaid 
the returning wagon trains. After he had successfully made 
several trips of this nature, other planters commissioned him 
to take their cotton to Natchez, and he made money for him- 
self in that manner. 

The Millsaps clan, for it was a small clan, and their con- 
nections were all devoted Methodists and were noted for abil- 
ity and integrity. All were alert and ambitious in a fine way. 
So when it became known in that section of Mississippi, at some 
time in the middle "Forties", that boys of limited means could 
get a college education in a Christian college in Indiana, mak- 
ing most of their expenses by working their way, the whole 
family seem to have been fired with an ambition to get a col-

lege education. First to go were T. J. "Wheat, a kinsman of 
Major Millsaps, and an older cousin, Uriah Millsaps. This was 
in 1849. They entered Hanover College, Indiana, and one 
year later Major Millsaps and his elder brother, William Green 
Millsaps, together with two Millsaps cousins, joined them there. 

One evening Major Millsaps hung up the sack in which he 
had picked cotton and announced that his cotton picking days 
were over. He was going to college. His father frankly told 
him that he was unable to send two boys to college since the 
younger children had to be provided for. The seventeen year 
old boy then told his father that he had saved all his money for 
that purpose, and that he had enough to start on. To raise a 
little money for his two boys a pony was sold for sixty dollars, 
and with that sum and their savings William and Webster 
Millsaps joined their two cousins, and the four started to 
Indiana. As the four boys walked from Hazlehurst to Natchez, 
from which they might proceed by a north-bound boat, this 
seventeen year old boy made a secret covenant with his God 
that, if he were prospered in his plans for life, he would some 
day endow a college so that no Mississippi boy would have to 
go out of Mississippi for a Christian Education. Forty years 
later that vow bore fruit, and Millsaps College is the result. 
How old is Millsaps College? By the calendar it is finishing 
its forty-first year, but it was conceived nearly eighty-three 
years ago. 

Major Millsaps remained at Hanover College two years, 
from 1850 to 1852. He sold books in vacation time to pay the 
expenses of his course. His preparation was inadequate, 
since he had only such advantages as he could get in an old 
field school. But his application to his studies was such that 
he made up his deficiencies and completed three years work 
in two years, making high grades in all his studies. Indeed 
he worked so hard that he impaired his health, and was consid- 
ered delicate. 

In 1852 Doctor Wheat and the five Millsaps boys changed 
to Asbury College, Greencastle, Indiana, now De Pauw Uni- 
versity, since it was a better equipped college than Hanover. 
Soon three other Millsaps boys joined him. Shortly after his 
arrival at Asbury Major Millsaps organized the boarding stu- 
dents into a cooperative club which he managed. He fed the 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 5 

boys well, yet reduced table board to $4.50 a month by skilful 
buying and careful planning. He was a leader in his fra- 
ternity, Beta Theta Pi, and also took a prominent part in de- 
bating. Along with thes^e activities he improved his grades in 
his studies, and acquired proficiency in the classics and an 
abiding fondness for them. After he was well on in his six- 
ties and a financier of large and varied interests, the Professor 
of Classics in Millsaps College found him reading Caesar's 
Commentaries for the pleasure of such a pastime. 

After he graduated with an A.B. degree at Asbury Col- 
lege he taught for two years in the family of Mr. Glass, a 
wealthy planter near Vicksburg. In 1856 he entered the Law 
School of Harvard University, and he graduated there in 185 8 
with the degree of LL.B. On his return from Harvard he 
passed through Washington and called on Senator Jefferson 
Davis. Through him he met Senator Robinson, of Arkansas. 
At his suggestion Major Millsaps began the practice of law at 
Pine Bluff, Arkansas, and was building up a fine practice when 
the Civil War began. He enlisted as a private in an Arkansas 
regiment, and was subsequently promoted as Lieutenant, then 
as Captain. He became an Adjutant, and then was made a 
Major. He was a gallant soldier, was severely wounded at 
the Battle of Shiloh, and afterward was captured at the Battle 
of Franklin. 

After the fall of the Confederacy he returned to Copiah 
county, and began a mercantile business in Brookhaven. In 
18 81 he entered business in St. Louis, Mo., where he remained 
for four years. He was so successful that he accumulated a 
competence, and retired for a short while. But he found 
leisure so irksome that he returned to active work, and re- 
mained busy until he died in 1916. Essentially an organizer, 
he organized the Bank of Hazlehurst, the Bank of Clarksdale, 
the Bank of Greenville, the Bank of Brookhaven, and finally 
he united several banks in Jackson into the Capital National 
Bank of Jackson, Mississippi, of which he remained President 
until his death. His interests and holdings were widely scat- 
tered throughout Mississippi, and his counsel in financial mat- 
ters was widely sought, and was regarded as almost infallible. 

He was honored greatly by his church. He was President 
of the Board of Stewards of the First Methodist Church of 



6 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

Jackson, later the Galloway Memorial Church, President of the 
official board of the Methodist Orphan's Home, and a large 
contributor to the building funds of both institutions, for long 
years a delegate to the Mississippi Conference, and several 
times a delegate to the General Conference. He was a trustee 
of Vanderbilt University until that institution ceased to be the 
property of the Methodist Church. And his benevolence 
passed far beyond the limits of his own denomination. He 
was a constant and careful giver to every worthy cause. 

But amid his numerous cares and responsibilities he never 
lost sight of the covenant made long ago as he walked across 
the country on his way to college. The dearest wish of his 
heart was to found in Mississippi a Christian College, so that 
Mississippi boys might be thoroughly educated at home. The 
institution of his dreams must be a school of thorough scholar- 
ship, and it must be also pre-eminently a Christian College. In 
1888 his opportunity came. The two Methodist conferences 
in Mississippi undertook jointly to establish a college for m^en, 
to be owned and operated jointly by the two conferences. The 
college was simply on paper until Major Millsaps offered to 
give $50,000.00 to the new enterprise provided that the Meth- 
odists of Mississippi would duplicate his gift. This they short- 
ly did, and the new college was named Millsaps College, and 
located in Jackson. It is to be noted that Major Millsaps 
earnestly urged that the new college be named the Mississippi 
Wesleyan College, but he was overruled by the votes of every 
other member of the Board of Trustees. From then until the 
day of his death Millsaps College was his main interest. He 
served as Treasurer and financial adviser as long as he lived, 
and the sound investment of the funds of the college was con- 
stantly in his mind. He was never too busy to listen to any 
plan for the benefit of the college. And, in the forty years 
which elapsed between his first resolve to found a college and 
its realization, he had studied the organization of colleges, and 
was widely informed as to the development of colleges and 
their respective programmes. He readily agreed to the mem- 
bership of Millsaps College in the Southern Association of Col- 
leges, and generously paid all expenses incident to that mem- 
bership. No improvement in colleges escaped him. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 7 

He was interested in the Literary Societies, in the Y. M. 
C. A., and in the development of athletics. Baseball, football, 
and track teams had his hearty support. Old in years he was 
never antiquated in his notions. He understood and sympa- 
thized with young people. Especially was he interested in 
students who worked their way. 

A word further needs to be said of his intellectual life and 
alertness. Few men kept up better with the best publications 
of his day. On his library table might be found the best books 
in history and biography, and these comprised recent works as 
well as the older standard ones. And to his keen appreciation 
of the literary value of such works he added the insight of a 
man of large affairs and of a fine knowledge of human nature. 
When he associated with the best trained minds in subjects of 
general human interest he was at no disadvantage. Widely 
known and greatly honored as a financier, specialists in the 
business world discovered to their surprise that Major Millsaps 
was at home with the best men in other fields. 

Balance, wisdom, and self mastery were combined in him 
with a cheerful confidence in the eventual triumph of honesty, 
industry, and character. Always original and always a leader 
in every enterprise which he undertook, he furnishes a fine 
example for young men. / In this time when the abiding values 
of life stand in clearer relief, we are prepared to appreciate 
his industry, frugality, patience, high resolve to do something 
abiding for men, and the progressive conservatism of his life. 

And his serene confidence in the wisdom and goodness of 
God was with him when the end of his life drew near. He 
knew when his work was done and he then wished to go. 
Reverently he might have said in the words of his Master, "I 
have finished the work thou gavest me to do." Besides his 
thought and care he had given approximately $600,000.00 to 
the college which bears his name, in addition to very many 
other benefactions. 

If, as has been said, an institution is the lengthened 
shadow of a man, Millsaps College has a rich heritage, and she 
can have no nobler work and no finer ideal than a high re- 
solve to maintain throughout her existence the ideals and the 
example of the noble man whose name she bears.

HISTORY 

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

AN ACT to incorporate Millsaps College. 

Section 1. Be it enacted by the Legislature of the State 
of ^Mississippi, That John J. Wheat. Samuel M. Thames, 
Thomas J. Newell and Rufus M. Standifer, of the North Mis- 
sissippi Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South,

and John Trice, lay members of said church within bounds of 
said Conference, and Thomas L. Mellen, Warren C. Black, 
Alexander F. Watkins and Charles G. Andrews, members of 
the Mississippi Conference of said church, and Marion M. 
Evans, Luther Sexton, William L. Nugent and Reuben W. 
Millsaps, of Jackson, lay members of said church, within the 
bounds of said Mississippi Conference, and Bishop Charles B. 
Galloway, be and they are hereby constituted a body corporate 
and politic by and under the name and style of Millsaps Col- 
lege, and by that name they and their successors may sue and 
be sued, plead and be impleaded, contract and be contracted 
with, and have a common seal and break the same at pleasure, 
and may accept donations of real and personal property for 



30 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

the benefit of the College hereafter to be established by them, 
and contributions of money or negotiable securities of every 
kind in aid of the endowment of such College; and may con- 
fer degrees and give certificates of scholarship and make by- 
laws for the government of said College and its affairs, as well 
as for their government, and do and perform all other acts 
for the benefit of said institution and the promotion of its 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- 
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, 
resignation or removal of said Galloway, or his permanent 
physical disability to discharge the duties of his office, the said 
Trustees may elect their President and prescribe his duties, 
powers and term of office. 

Sec. 3. That the said Trustees shall, before the meeting 
of said Conference 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 
office have expired. And the said Corporation and the Col- 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 31 

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- 
der the special patronage of said Conferences. 

Sec. 4. That the said Trustees, when organized as here- 
inoefore 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 di- 
rection of said Conference for said College shall be turned 
over to and receipted for by them in their said corporate name, 
and the payee of such notes and evidences of debt shall en- 
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. 

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. 



32 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

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- 
mittee: Rev. T. L. Mellen, Rev. W. C. Black, Rev. A. F. Wat- 
kins, Major R. W. Millsaps, Col. W. L. N'ugent and Dr. Luther 
Sexton. 

On December 12, 1888, the North Mississippi Conference 
met at Starkville, Mississippi, Bishop C. B. Gallowaj'' 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. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 33 

"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- 
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 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 



34 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

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 
$3 6,000, 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 
189 paid $25,000 into the College treasury. 

In December, 189 2, 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 
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: 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 35 

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. WATKIXS REV. C. G. ANDREWS. D.D. 

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

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

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

DR. LUTHER SEXTON MR. JOHN TRICE 

HON. M. M. EVANS 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 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, 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, 
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. 



36 MILLS APS COLLEGE 

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 189 5-189 6 
by the generosity of Major Millsaps, who gave Webster Science 
Hall. In 19 01 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,- 
720.9 0. Thus the endowment of the College was increased 
by $100,000. 

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, but was promptly rebuilt and made more val- 
uable by alterations which also improved greatly the appear- 
ance of the structure. A more disastrous fire destroyed the 
main building in 1914. But within a few months the old 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE ST 

structure had been replaced by a far more commodious and 
imposing administration building. 

At the decease of. Major R. W. Millsaps in 19 IC, 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- 
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 



38 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

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 1923 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 1926 and again in 1927 the Conferences took action 
approving and endorsing the purpose of the College to make a 
special appeal for the enlargement and improvement of the 
physical 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. Buie, 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. 

In compliance with a request from the student body the 
Board of Trustees, at their annual meeting in June 19 32, 
named the new science building Sullivan-Harrell Hall. 

Since 1912 Millsaps College has been a member of the 
Southern Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. An 
impartial committee of the Association made exhaustive in- 
quiry into the financial resources of the institution, its courses, 
the training of its instructors, and the character of its work, 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 39 

and unanimously recommended it for membership. This in- 
quiry 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 227,0 71.18 

Books, Equipment, etc 75,000.00 

New Construction and Equipment 216,873.29 

TOTAL $1,878,046.01 

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 $829,944.47, 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.

MULLSAPS COLLEGE 47 

GENERAL INFOR>LlTION 

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 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 class of 1916 donated a fine photographic 
lens to the observatory. A two inch prismatic transit by 
Gaertner was added to the equipment in 1930. 

CARNEGIE IMTLLSAPS LIBRARY 

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. 



48 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 and Miss Florence Leech, trained and experienced 
librarians. 

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. 

In 19 31 the Carnegie Corporation included the Millsaps 
College library in the list of college libraries to which special 
donations were made for the purchase of books. A sum of 
$10,000 has been allotted to the library to be paid in five an- 
nual installments. This fund has already greatly strengthened 
the library, especially by making it possible to obtain many 
works and sets of books that it would otherwise have been 
difficult or impossible to obtain at this time. In the last two 
and one-half years, through February of 19 3 3, more than 1,800 
books have been added to the library from this source. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 49 

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

THE YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN 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. 



50 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

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- 
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 treasurer of the Association, collects 
the annual dues and raises funds sufficient for meeting cur- 
rent expenses. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 51 

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 missioB 
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 CHRISTL\N 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. 



52 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

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 1925-'26 Millsaps debate teams won every one of the six 
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 leads 
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 v/hatever 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. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 53 

Hamilton, and the women's glee club under the direction of 
Miss Magnolia Simpson. The women's glee club is now under 
the direction of Mr. Alvin J. King. An excellent band has been 
organized, the student body raising some $1,200.00 for instru- 
ments and equipment, and it has made rapid progress. The 
students of the Fine Arts Department have organized the 
Beethoven 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. 

ATHTjETICS 

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 Geutral 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 FACILITIES 

Students of Millsaps College, as a rule arrange for their 
living in one of two ways. 

1. There are seven small cottages, in which students can 
room at reduced cost. These cottages are provided with the 



54 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

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 $20.00 
per year in advance or $12.50 per half year in advance. Furni- 
ture, lights, fuel, and water are furnished expcept 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 $18.00 to $21.00 per month including room, light, steam 
heat, board, matron's services, and hospital facilities. The 
dining room is conducted on the cooperative plan. During 
1931-,32 the cost amounted to approximately $15.00 per 
month. Students who room in the cottages 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 Millsaps System and the 
recent development of a number of excellent State Junior col- 
leges in Mississippi, the number of women students in the 
junior and senior classes of Millsaps has increased to such an 
extent that the College has provided living quarters for women. 
This is at present done in a number 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 required to reside in the home provid- 
ed by the College and to conform to the regulations of the dean 
of women. Room rent in these homes is $63.00 per year or 
$35.00 per half year and board $18.00 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. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 55 

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 
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 .$2 5.00. 

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. 

MEMORIAL 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. 

MATRICLLATIOX 

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, 



56 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

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. 

EXA]VnNATIONS 

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 OF 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 13th. 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 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 57 

signed by both the Registrar and the Bursar. On payment of 
these fees the applicant will be admitted to classes. 

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 



58 MILLSA.PS COLLEGE 

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 
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 a 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 66-2/3% and the examination 33-1/3% of the grade 
for the semester. If the combined grade is below 70 the stu- 
dent 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. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 59 

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

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 

Library Extension SeiTice. — One of the most effectire 
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 PUPILS 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. 



60 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

AID TO CLUB WOMEN 

Lectures 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 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- 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 61 

lations of the college regulations, such as hazing and oth- 
er offences. 

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. 

i. 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 BO.UID

Tuition fees will be charged by the year or half-year and 
must be paid not later than the second week of each period.

ond day of the session and conform, as regards the registration 
in their respective classes and payment of dues, to the re- 
quirements stated in the preceding paragraph.

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

Free Tuition. 

Children of itinerant preachers of the Methodist Epis- 
copal Church, South, or of superannuated or active minis- 
ters of any Christian denomination, and young men prepar- 
ing for the ministry may receive tuition free in the academic 
department, but are expected to pay all other fees. Any 
student, wishing exemption from the payment of the tuition 
fee upon this ground, will be required to present a certifi- 
cate from the Quarterly Conference or some other ecclesias- 
tical body showing that he is recognized by his Church as a 
student preparing for the ministry. 

COLLEGE FEES 

NOTE: — The amount to be paid for tuition varies accord- 
ing to the scholastic success of the student during the preced- 
ing school session or year. Those who make an average grade 
of 90 or more, will pay tuition at the rate of $75.00 per year. 
Those whose average is 75 to 89, inclusive, will pay tuition at 
the rate of $115.00 per year. Those whose average is below 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 63 

75 will pay tuition at the rate of $140.00 per year. Transfer 
students will also pay tuition at the above rates. 

The scale of tuition payments for first year or freshman 
students will be based upon their scholastic success in the last 
two years of their high school course in an accredited high 
school. The applicant whose average grade is 25% more than 
the pass grade in his school will be entitled to the lowest 
rate of tuition, $75.00 per year, provided he furnishes a cer- 
tificate from his high school principal that he ranks in the 
highest one-fifth of his class, and also provided that his rank in 
the placement tests given by the college is in the highest quin- 
tile or one-fifth of the class. Applicants whose average grade 
in the last lull year of high school is 8 % higher than the pass 
grade will be entitled to make the average tuition payment of 
$115.00 on the same terms and with the same provisions as 
above. Applicants whose average grade in their last full year 
of high school is less than 8 % higher than the pass grade of 
their high school will be charged the highest rate for tuition, 
i.e., $140.00 per year. 

ILLUSTRATION: If the pass grade of a school is 70, 
then the average grade which entitles to the lowest tuition 
($75.00) is 88, if the pass grade is 75, then the average must 
be 9 4. Similarly, if the pass grade is 70, the student falling 
below 76 will pay the highest tuition, $140,00; if the pass 
grade is 75, then the student with an average grade below 81 
will pay the highest tuition, $140.00.

MILLSAPS COLLEGE 76 

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

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 
and modern languages. All the courses in the Senior and 
almost all in the Junior class are elective. 

The usual course is 32 semester hours for each year. 
Not fewer than 2 4 semester hours nor more than 38 semester 
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, 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, 4 2 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. 

HONORS 

A student who has earned 160 quality points during hla 
course shall be graduated with "honors"; one who has earned 
248 quality points shall be graduated with "high honors."

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 will 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.

MISS BURNHAM 

The Department of Chemistry is now well provided for in 
the Sullivan-Harrell Hall, a new and thoroughly modern sci- 
ence 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 con- 
veniences. There are four large laboratories, one for general 
chemistry provided with five double desks eighteen feet long to 
accommodate 140 students in three sections (and piping 
roughed-in for two more desks as needed), one for organic and 
qualitative 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 3 0-ampere electric current, with separate control fc 
lighting fixture attached to ceiling of hood. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 9 1 

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 w^ith 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, or 21, 22. 

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

A lecture room, a laboratory, and a large room for the 
display of specimens are provided for this department in the 
new fireproof Science Hall. The Museum contains about 300 
minerals collected from various parts of the world, 200 speci- 
m-ens of rock presented by the United States Geological Sur^ 
vey, 300 minerals and rocks presented by Goucher College, 
and a fine collection of Mississippi rocks and fossils. The 
excellence of the latter is yearly increased by donations from 
friends of the College, and a collection made by the professor 
and class on annual trips. 

11. Lithologic and Physiographic Geologj-. 

This includes a study of mineral crystalline forms, chem- 
ical composition, occurrence, and uses, with a description 
of the kind and arrangement of rock masses. Folios 
and topographical sheets of the U. S. Geological Survey 
will be used in connection with a study of physiographic 
features and processes. 

Dynamic Geology. 

The portion of the courses embraces the study of the 
mechanical and chemical effects of the atmosphere, wa- 
ter, heat, and life. Special attention will be given to 
some phases of the subject, as the work of glaciers, and 
of volcanoes. 

12. Historical Geologj'. 

In addition to the general historical geology, some atten- 
tion will be given to economic products and to paleon- 
tology. 

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 to 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

VII. THE DEPARTMENT OF GERMAN 

PROFESSOR HAMILTON 

Al, A2. 

The regular college work in German begins with course 
11, 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 
supervision of the College and not used as an entrance unit, 
may be used as Junior or Senior elective. When thus used 
it counts three hours toward graduation. All classes in Ger- 
man meet three times a week, unless otherwise specified. For 
entrance Course A will count as two units, provided the student 
makes a grade of not less than 80. 

Text-Books — Grammar. Storm, Immensee; Modern Short 
stories in German. 

11, 12. 

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

Text-Books — Thomas, A Practical German Grammar; Wilhelm 
Tell; Short Stories; Freytag, Die Journalisten. For 
parallel reading; Schiller, Die Junfrau von Orleans;

ASSISTANT PROFESSOR HAYNES 

MR. KIMBALL 

MR. C. N. BRADLEY 

MR. HALEY 

In the courses in History two things will be kept in view. 
Students will be reauired 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 
history. 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 
in Freshman year for B.S. students. Required in either 
Freshman or Sophomore year for B.A. students.

* 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 ethics 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.

II, 12. Physical Training for Men. The requirements in 
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 Women. General gymnastics (light 
apparatus) ; rhythmic plays and games. Tumbling, Pyramid- 
building, etc; developmental and corrective gymnastics. Spring

MR. MOORE 

MR. MANSELL 

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 



124 MILLSAPS COLLEGE

GENERAL STATEMENT 

The Summer School of Millsaps College for 19 33 will 
open on June 6 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. 



146 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 $3.00. 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 5. Fees and board pay- 
able strictly in advance. 

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

The following courses will be offered: 

Chemistry 21, 22 Physics 11, 12

148 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 campus 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 149
