1951-1952 




The Sixty'first Session Begins 
July, 1952 



FOREWORD 



Experience indicates that those who examine college cata- 
logs are usually interested primarily in finding the answers to 
the following questions : 

(1) What is the general nature, type, and standing of the college ? 

(2) What are the requirements for admission? 

(3) What is the cost of attending the college and what oppor- 
tunities are available for earning part of these expenses? 

(4) What subjects of study are provided and what are the re- 
quirements for graduation? 

(5) What rules does a student have to follow while attending the 
college ? 

(6) What other activities are provided outside the classroom? 

(7) What physical equipment and financial resources does the 
college have? 

In order to make this catalog easier to read, we have tried 
to arrange it so as to answer these questions in logical order. The 
first two questions, which are of concern primarily to prospec- 
tive students, are answered in Part I. The other questions are 
covered successively in Parts II-VI, as shown in the Table of 
Contents on the opposite page. In Part VII we have given the 
necessary information with regard to the trustees, officers, and 
faculty, and have listed the names of other staff personnel and 
of the members of the student body. 

This catalog is primarily a record of the 1951-52 session of 
the college. The academic calendar of the 1952-53 session will be 
found in the back.

"To be at home in all lands and ages ; to count 
Nature a familiar acquaintance and Art a familiar 
friend ; to gain a standard for the appreciation of 
other men's work and the criticism of one's own ; 
to make friends among men and women of one's 
own age who are to be leaders in all walks of life ; 
to lose one's self in generous enthusiasm and to co- 
operate with others for common ends ; to learn 
manners from students who are gentlemen and 
gentlewomen, and to form character under pro- 
fessors who are Christian — these are the returns 
of a college for the best four years of one's life." 

— President Hyde, Bowdoix College.

MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

is a church related college 

under the joint care and control of the Mississippi and North Missis- 
sippi Conferences of the Methodist Church. The college is non-sectarian 
but devoutly Christian. During the 1951-52 session it numbered in its 
student body members of fifteen denominations and in its faculty mem- 
bers of five denominations. It is dedicated to the idea that education 
is an integral part of the Christian religion, that religion is a vital part 
of education, and that church-related colleges, providing a sound educa- 
tional program in a Christian environment, afford a special type of train- 
ing and influence which no other institution can offer. The existence 
side by side of educational institutions related to the church, the state, 
and private agencies, each with its own functions to perform, is not only 
evidence of democracy in our educational system, but is also the best 
possible guarantee of the preservation of democracy in our civilization. 

is a small college 

with enrollment limited to 800 students. The close personal relation- 
ship that exists among students, faculty, and administration in the small 
college is one of the most vital parts of the college experience. 

Is a co-educational college 

with an enrollment approximately two-thirds men and one-third 
women. Boys and girls study together throughout grammar school and 
high school. Men and women work together throughout later life. They 
study and work together at Millsaps. 

is a liberal arts college 

with the primary aim of training its students for responsible citizen- 
ship and well-rounded lives rather than for narrow professional careers. 
One of the chief curses of our modern society is that so many of our 
people are expert lawyers, or doctors, or business men, or brick layers, 
without at the same time being good citizens. More than any other 
institution, the liberal arts college can remedy this defect by training 
its students, in whatever field of specialization they may choose, to be 
community leaders in responsible citizenship. 

offers professional and pre-professional training 

balanced by cultural and disciplinary studies. The college recognizes 
that in the modern world training which will enable a person to support 
himself adequately is an essential part of a well-rounded education. There- 
fore, the student at Millsaps can, for example, obtain the necessary courses 
to prepare him directly for a business career or for service in education, 
the ministry, or social work; he can study music as preparation for pro- 
fessional work in the field, as well as for its esthetic and cultural value; 
he can become proficient in shorthand and typewriting while at the same 
time studying language and literature; and he can obtain thoroughly 
sound basic courses which will prepare him for professional study in 
medicine, dentistry, law, and other fields. Professional leaders in all 
fields are coming more and more to recognize that the most valuable 
members of their profession are those who have had something more in 
their background of training than the narrow technical study necessary 
for proficiency in that field. 



selects its students carefully 

not on the basis of ability to pay or previous opportunities or charm 

of personality, but on ability to think, desire to learn, good moral character, 
and intellectual maturity. The primary consideration in acting on all 
applications for admission is the ability to do college work in a measure 
satisfactory to the college and beneficial to the student. Tuition is kept 
low enough to make higher education available to all, but an attempt 
is made to keep admission requirements high enough to exclude those 
who cannot profit from it. 

has a cosmopolitan student body 

representing a wide geographical area. During the 19-51-5 2 session 
sixteen states and five foreign countries were represented in the stu- 
dent body. It is the policy of the college to encourage by scholarships and 
otherwise the attendance of foreign students, because of the mutual 
contribution this can make to international good will and understanding. 

Is ideally located 

in the capital city of the state. Many educational advantages may 
be found in Jackson in addition to the courses offered at the college. 
The State Department of Archives and History, the State Library, the 
Library of the State Department of Health, and the Jackson Public 
Library provide research facilities found nowhere else in the state. The 
Jackson Symphony Orchestra, Jackson Little Theater, and numerous 
musical, dramatic, and sporting events staged at the City Auditorium 
add materially to the cultural advantages available to the student. 

is fully accredited 

by all appropriate standardizing and accrediting agencies, both 
regional and national, and is recognized by the General Board of Christian 
Education of the Methodist Church as one of the strongest institutions 
in the connection. 

Millsaps is fuUy approved by: 

The Southern Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools 
The American Association of University Women 
The University Senate of the Methodist Church 

Millsaps shares in current educational thought tlirough membership 
in: 

The Association of American Colleges

academic life offered by the college. All applicants for admission must 
furnish evidence of 

1. Good moral character 

2. Sound physical and mental health

fifteen acceptable units of secondary school work. 

(b) One-half of the units of secondary school work accepted for

required for entrance. 

2. By Examination.

rection of the Department of Education. These examinations are 
given on the scholastic work covered by the list of secondary 
units approved by the Southern Association of Colleges and

MILLSAPS COLLEGE 11 

Admission To Advanced Standing 

1. Millsaps College normally allows full credit to transfer students on 
work taken at other accredited institutions. Some courses which, are 
not regarded as consistent with a liberal arts curriculum, however, may 
not be credited toward a degree. 

2. Students with good records at non-accredited institutions may be ad- 
mitted on probation, and the work done at such institutions will be 
validated if the student makes a satisfactory record the first year at 
Millsaps.

junior college. 

4. Full credit is allowed for all junior college academic courses of fresh-

courses, with the proviso that junior college transfers may be called 
upon to do extra work necessary to fulfill the requirements at Millsaps 
for majors, for pi'e-professional work, and for professional teaching 
licenses. 

5. After earning 64 semester hours of credit, at a senior or junior college, 
a student will not be granted any additional credit toward a degree at 
Millsaps for work done at a junior college. 

6. Grades and quality points made by students at other institutions will 
be recorded on their records at Millsaps. but transfer students will be 
required to include in the 120 quality points required for graduation 
quality points earned at Millsaps at least equal in number to the num- 
ber of hours of academic credit remaining on their graduation require- 
ment after the transfer credits are entered. 

7. In the case of students transferring to Millsaps with more than 3 but 
less than 6 hours credit in a required subject, the head of the depart- 
ment concerned is authorized to approve a 3-hour elective in that de- 
partment as a substitute for the remainder of the required course. 

8. Credit will not be given for work done by correspondence.

collegiate activities. 



12 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

HOW TO APPLY FOR ADMISSION 

All persons not in residence at Millsaps during the preceding regular 
semester must apply to the Admissions Committee and be accepted prior 
to registration for the fall and spring semesters. 

A prospective student should apply for admission well in advance of 
the date on which he wishes to enter, particularly if housing accommoda- 
tions on the campus are desired. The Admissions Committee begins act- 
ing on applications for the fall semester in February and on applications 
for the spring semester in November. 

In applying for admission a prospective student should follow the 
procedure described below: 

1. He should request an application blank from the Dean, who is chair- 
man of the Admissions Committee. 

2. He should fill out this application blank and return it to the Dean. 

3. He should have a letter of recommendation sent to the Dean by an 
appropriate official of the school or schools he has previously attend- 
ed, attesting to his character and ability. 

4. He should have his high school principal or college registrar send an 
official transcript of his credits directly to the Dean. A separate 
transcript is required from every secondary school or college attended, 
even though credits previously earned are included on the transcript 
from the school last attended. A student who has already earned some 
college credit, however, need not have a separate transcript of his 
high school credits sent if these are included on his college tran- 
script. 

If the prospective student is in school at the time he applies for ad- 
mission, he should have a transcript sent showing his credits up to that 
time. If he is accepted, a supplementary transcript will be required later 
showing the completion of his work. 

THE COUNSELING PROGRAM 

Each new student at Millsaps is assigned to a member of the faculty, 
who serves as adviser for that student. Efforts are made to give guidance 
in registration and adjustment to the college community, and to give 
counsel in dealing with personal problems as they arise. When the stu- 
dent chooses his field of major study in his sophomore or junior year, 
his major professor automatically becomes his faculty adviser. Tests 
and other personal data are used as a background for these counseling ac- 
tivities, which are continued throughout the student's college program. 

An orientation program is scheduled each year to assist new stu- 
dents in becoming oriented to college life. The program includes sev- 
eral psychological tests, tours about the campus and instruction in the 
use of the library, talks on study methods and problems of adjustment to 
college, and informal social contacts for the freshmen with each other, 
with certain committees of upper-class students, and with the faculty. Its 
chief purpose, however, is to give guidance in registration and educational 
planning. Attendance at the Orientation Week program is required of all 
entering students. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 13 

THE GUIDANCE CENTER 

A Guidance Center, staffed by members of the Department of Psy- 
chology, provides assistance to students in matters of vocational choice 
and planning, as well as problems of personal and social adjustment, de- 
velopment of study skills, etc. Tests of special aptitude interests, and essen- 
tial personality traits are given students using the services of the Guid- 
ance Center. These tests supplement those given to all entering students 
and enable each individual to get a more complete picture of himself. 

Occupational information covering a wide variety of fields is available 
to the student body at the Guidance Center. An attempt is made to keep 
this information current and at the disposal of each individual. 

Information concerning summer job opportunities is supplied to inter- 
ested students. Summer employment can sometimes give the student ex- 
perience in activities related to his occupational choice. 

THE READING CLINIC 

Experience has demonstrated that the accomplishments of students in 
their college work can be materially improved by improving their reading 
skills and that it is possible through directed practice to increase the read- 
ing speed of almost anyone. This is true of superior students as well as 
of their slower fellows. 

In accordance with these findings, the college has set up a Reading 
Clinic, which operates separately from but in cooperation with the program 
in Freshman English. Members of the faculty specially trained in this 
field supervise this work. 

Students may utilize the services of the clinic on a voluntary basis. 
Instruction is given in small groups for a period of several weeks, and 
individual attention is given to each student's particular difficulties. Drills 
in vocabulary building and practice in rapid reading are provided, and 
tests are made at intervals of each student's reading speed and compre- 
hension. 

THE HEALTH PROGRAM 

While the student is in residence every effort is made to protect nis 
health and to promote his physical development. The work of the Physical 
Education Department, the intramural sports program, and the recreation- 
al facilities available on the campus contribute toward this end. 

The college has set up a fully equipped infirmary with a registered 
nurse in attendance at all times to look after the health of the students. 
Space is available to isolate students with communicable illness in order 
that the health of other students living in the dormitories and fraternity 
houses may not be jeopardized. 

A physician is subject to call by the nurse at any time his services 
mav be needed.

SPECIAL STUDENTS 
A special student is one who takes less than twelve semester hours of 
work for college credit or one who has already received a baccalaureate 
degree. Special students pay the following tuition rates plus any labora- 
tory fees involved. 

Tuition per semester hour: 

1 to 11 semester hours inclusive, per hour $13.00

charged $7.50 for each additional hour per semester. 

NON-RESIDENT OR OUT-OF-STATE STUDENTS 
Tuition for non-resident or out-of-state students will be the custo- 
mary tuition plus $1.00 per semester hour. The low tuition at Millsaps Col- 
lege is possible in part because of the annual contributions of the two 
Methodist Conferences in Mississippi. It seems only fair, therefore, that 
students from other states wishing to utilize the educational facilities 
which these contributions help to provide should be asked to pay this ad- 
ditional amount above the regular tuition. 

Both resident and non-resident students will be charged the appli- 
cable laboratory and other fees listed above. 

REVISION OF CHARGES 
Millsaps College reserves the privilege of changing any or all of the 
charges for tuition, regular fees, and special fees at any time without 
notice. 

FINANCIAL REGULATIONS 

The following regulations, adopted by the Finance Committee, are 
not subject to change, even by the President or Business Manager. 

PAYMENTS. — All charges are due and payable at the opening of 
the semester. No student will be marked present in his classes until pay- 
ment has been made in the Business Office or satisfactory financial ar- 
rangements have been made with the Business Manager of the college. 

Any accounts due for any preceding semester must be paid before a 
student will be enrolled for the succeeding semester. The Registrar is not 
permitted to transfer credits until all outstanding indebtedness to the 
college is paid in the Business Office. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 19 

No student will be allowed to graduate unless he shall have settled 
with the Business Office all his indebtedness to the college, including the 
graduation fee of $15.00. 

VETERANS' PAYMENTS. — Veterans attending school under Public 
Laws 16 and 34 6 will pay only the charges for room rent and board. 
All other expenses will be borne directly by the Federal Government. 

STUDENTS ROOMING IN FRATERNITY HOUSES — Students room- 
ing in fraternity houses must eat in in the college cafeteria. Rules regard- 
ing payment of board and medical fees applicable to other students will 
be observed by the students rooming in fraternity houses. 

REFUNDS. — ^Room rent cannot be refunded after the semester has 
begun. Unused amounts paid in advance for board will be refundable. A 
student who withdraws with good reason within two weeks after the date of 
his registration will be entitled to a refund of 80% of tuition and fees; 
within three weeks, 60% ; within four weeks 40% ; and within five weeks 
20%. If a student remains in college as much as five weeks, no refund 
will be made except for board. 

CHANGE OF SCHEDULE REFUNDS. — No reduction of fee.= or tu- 
ition will be allowed for any course dropped after two weeks from the 
first meeting of the class in each semester. 

The date of withdrawal from which all claims to reductions and re- 
funds will be referred is the date on which the Registrar is officially 
notified by the student of his intention to withdraw from college. (See 
regulations relative to withdrawals.) 

AUDITING OF COURSES. — Courses are audited only with approval 
of the Dean. There will be no charge to a full-time student except labora- 
tory fee for auditing any course. Special students taking other courses 
may audit one course without charge except for the payment of a labora- 
tory fee that may be involved. A person not enrolled in any courses for 
college credit will be allowed to audit courses on payment of the tuition 
for special students and any laboratory fees that may be involved; no 
other fees will be charged. A student auditing the classroom work of a 
course and not auditing the laboratory work will not be considered as hav- 
ing a laboratory fee involved. A student auditing a course in which the 
laboratory work and classroom work cannot be separated will be required 
to pay the laboratory fee. 

PURPOSE AND DISTRIBUTION OF THE STUDENT ACTIVITIES FEE 

The student activities fee of $8.00 paid by a student at the beginning 
of each semester is distributed among the different organizations existing 
on the campus. The distribution of this fee is made on the recommenda- 
tion of the Student Executive Board. 

The student activities fee is distributed among organizations such as 
the Y. M. C. A., Y. W. C. A.. The Student Association, Debate Club, Band, 
Glee Club, Dramatics, Purple & White, Bobashela, and The Woman's As- 
sociation. Payment of the activities fee gives each student a year's sul)-

9. Comprehensive Examinations: 

Before receiving a bachelor's degree the student must pass a satis- 
factory comprehensive examination in his major field of study. This ex- 
amination is given in the senior year and is intended to cover subject mat- 
ter greater in scope than a single course or series of courses. The purpose 
of the comprehensive examination is to coordinate the class work with in- 
dependent reading and thinking in such a way as to relate the knowledge 
acquired and give the student a general understanding of the field which 
could not be acquired from individual courses. 

Regularly scheduled conferences between department heads and stu- 
dents majoring in the department will be held throughout the senior year. 
The comprehensive examination requires at least three hours and is part 
written and part oral, the division of time between the two to be at the 
discretion of the members of the department concerned. The oral exam- 
ination will be conducted by a committee composed of members of the 
department, and, if desired by the department, one or more members of 
the faculty from other departments or other qualified persons. 

A student may take the comprehensive examination only if the courses 
on which he has credit and in which he is currently enrolled complete the 
requirements in the major department. He may take the examination in 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 



31 



the spring semester if he will be within 21 hours of graduation by the end 
of that semester. In cases of necessity, the examination will be given in De- 
cember or January for students who meet the other requirements and who 
will not be in residence at Millsaps during the spring semester. 

The time of the comprehensive examination given in the spring semes- 
ter is the first week in May of each year. Comprehensive examinations will 
not be given during the summer except by permission of the Dean. 

Those who fail a comprehensive examination may have an opportunity 
to take another examination after the lapse of two months. If the student 
fails the second comprehensive, he may not have another until he has 
taken at least one additional semester's work in Millsaps College. 



COURSES REQUIRED FOR REGULAR STUDENTS 

A regular student will be required to enroll for English, Mathematics, 
and Foreign Language each year until he has completed the degree re- 
quirements in these subjects. This rule does not apply to the summer ses- 
sion, or to students entering the second semester if the appropriate courses 
are not offered at that time.

TEACHER TRAINING 

A placement bureau for teachers is maintained under the direction 
of the Department of Education. It seeks to further the interests of teach- 
ers trained at Millsaps College and to be of service to school officials who 
wish to secure efficient teachers. 

The attention of students preparing for the teaching profession is 
called to the fact that a surplus of high school teachers is developing, 
while at the same time there is a great shortage of elementary teachers. 

Students planning to teach in either the elementary or secondary 
school should follow exactly the appropriate sequence of courses outlined 
below. The requirements for teaching certificates are quite detailed and 
specific, and students must have the exact courses specified. These re- 
quirements apply to all certificates issued after May 1, 1954. The follow- 
ing course of study will meet the requirements for a Millsaps degree and 
at the same time qualify the student for the highest type of teaching cer- 
tificate available with a baccalaureate degree.

Credits in applied music will vary slightly depending on the major select- 
ed. Majors are offered in Piano, Voice, Violin, Band or Orchestra Instru- 
ment. All curricula meet the Mississippi State Department of Education 
requirements for the certification of music teachers. 

MILLSAPS-BELHAVEN COOPERATIVE PROGRAM 

Students at Millsaps College are permitted to enroll for one or more 
courses at Belhaven College as a part of their regular program of studies. 
The two colleges are located only a few blocks apart, and the schedules 
have been coordinated so as to make possible this exchange of students 
between the two campuses. Regular transportation is provided. 

There is also a sharing of the physical and other facilities of the two 
schools. Students at each institution may check out books from either of 
the college libraries. 

UNIVERSITY OF MISSISSIPPI-MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

CENTER 

Inaugurated in the spring of 1951, the University of Mississippi-Mill- 
saps College Center represents a cooperative effort of the two institutions 
to provide broader educational opportunities to the citizens of Jackson and 
the surrounding area. In addition to the two phases of the program de- 
scribed below, the curricula of the two schools are being coordinated in 
such a way as to make easier the transition from the pre-medical, pre- 
nursing, pre-engineering, pre-law, and other preparatory courses on the 
Millsaps Campus to the work for professional degrees in these fields of- 
fered by the University. Educators in such professional fields are becom- 
ing increasingly anxious for their students to have, as a background for 
their professional work, the broad liberal arts training which a curriculum 
such as that offered at Millsaps provides. 

GRADl ATK STUDY PROGRAM 

Graduate credit will be granted by the University of Mississippi for 
certain courses offered on the Millsaps Campus. These courses are under 
the supervision of the Dean of the Graduate School of the University of 
Mississippi and are taught by regular members of the faculty of the Uni- 
versity and Millsaps. The credit granted is residence credit toward a Mas- 
ter's degree. 

ADULT i:ducation program 

Late afternoon and evening courses are offered on the Millsaps cam- 
pus for the benefit of persons employed in the Jackson area. Resident un- 
dergraduate credit at either the University of Mississippi or Millsaps may 
be earned by students in these courses who meet the entrance require- 
ments of either institution. The courses are taught by regular members 
of the Millsaps faculty and other qualified persons approved by both insti- 
tutions. The Millsaps library and laboratory facilities are available to stu- 
dents in these courses. Information as to specific courses offered and other 
matters may be obtained by addressing The Director, University of Missis- 
sippi-Millsaps College Center, Jackson 10, Mississippi.

In-Service Training 

Industries in the Jackson area are provided an excellent means of em- 
ployee training through the specialized training programs set up by the 
University of Mississippi-Millsaps College Center. This training is avail- 
able in a wide range of subjects. Special courses can be arranged on a 
credit or non-credit basis. 

THE WASHINGTON SEMESTER 

"The Washington Semester" is a joint arrangement between The 
American University, Washington, D. C, Millsaps College, and sixteen 
other colleges and universities in the United States to extend the resources 
of the national capital to superior students in the field of the social 
sciences. The object is to provide a direct contact with the work of 
governmental departments and other national and international agencies 
that are located in Washington, thus acquainting the students with pos- 
sible careers in public service and imparting a knowledge of government 
in action. 

Under this arrangement qualified students of demonstrated capacity 
from the participating colleges will spend a semester at the School of 
Social Sciences and Public Affairs of the American University in Washing- 
ton. They will earn there fifteen hours toward graduation in their home 
colleges. In Washington the program is coordinated by staff members of 
The American University, assisted by a professor appointed for a single 
semester by one of the participating colleges. 

Millsaps will ordinarily send two students in each fall semester. These 
will be either juniors or first semester seniors and will be selected by a 
faculty committee in April of each year. The students selected will pay 
their fees, including room-rent, to Millsaps. Their only extra expense for 
the Washington semester will be slightly higher food costs in Washington 
and transportation to and from the nation's capital. 

It is believed by the administration and faculty of Millsaps that this 
opportunity for first-hand study and observation of government in action 
is unexcelled by any undergraduate program in education today.

XI DEPARTMENT OF MATHEMATICS 

EMERITUS PROFESSOR MITCHELL 

PROFESSOR REYNOLDS

ASSISTANT PROFESSOR KNOX 

I. MATHEMATICS 

The Mathematics courses at Millsaps are intended: (1) to offer an 
experience in a sufficient variety of basic and liberal subjects to consti- 
tute the foundation of that general education which is regarded as essen- 
tial to balanced development and intelligent citizenship; (2) to meet the 
needs of four types of students — (a) those who will proceed to the usual 
academic degrees at the end of four years; (b) those who will enter profes- 
sional schools after three or four years; (c) those who are preparing for 
teaching, scientific investigation, or both; and (d) those who will take less 
than a complete academic program. 

An effort is made to show the student that there is an intangible 
worth to mathematics; that there is such a thing as mathematics as an art, 
mathematics for its own sake, mathematics for the sheer joy of comparing, 
analyzing, and imagining.

MILLSAPS COLLEGE 83 

GRADES, HONORS, CLASS STANDING 

GRADING SYSTEM 

The gi-ade of the student in any class is determined by the combined 
class standing and the result of a written examination. The examination 
grade is counted as approximately one-third of the grade for the semester. 

"A" represents superior work. 

"B" represents above the average achievement in the regularly prescribed 
work. 

"C" represents an average level of achievement in the regularly prescribed 

work. 

"D" represents a level of achievement in the regularly prescribed work of 
the class below the average in the same relationship as the grade of 
"B" is above the average. 

"E" represents a condition and is changed to a "D" if the grade in the 
other semester of the course is "C" or above, providing that the 
"E" precedes the higher grade on the student's record. 

"F" represents failure to do the regularly prescribed work of the class. 
All marks of "D" and above are passing marks and "F" represents 
failure. 

"WP" indicates that the student has withdrawn from the course while 
passing, and "WF" means that he has withdrawn while failing. 

"I" indicates that the work is incomplete and is changed to "F" if the 
work is not completed by the end of the following semester. 

QUALITY POINTS 

The completion of any academic course with a grade of "C" shall 
entitle a student to one quality point for each semester hour, the comple- 
tion of a course with a grade of "B" for the semester shall entitle a student 
to two quality points for each semester hour, and the completion of a course 
with the grade of "A" for the semester shall entitle a student to three qual- 
ity points foi each semester hour. 

CLASS STANDING OF STUDENTS 

The following number of hours and quality points is required: 

For sophomore rating 24 hours; 12 quality points 

For junior rating 52 hours: 36 quality points 

For senior rating 90 hours; 72 quality points 

For graduation 12S hours; 120 quality points 

A student's classification for the entire year is on the basis of his 
status at the beginning of the fall semester. 

HONORS AT GRADUATION 

In determining honors and high honors, and all other awards based 
on scholarship, a quality index is arrived at by dividing the number of 
quality points by the number of academic hours taken. 



84 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

A student whose quality point index is 2.0 for his entire course shall 
be graduated with Honors; one whose quality point index is 2.7 and who 
has a rating of excellent on comprehensive examination shall be graduated 
with High Honors. 

To be eligible for Honors or High Honors, a student must have 
passed at least sixty semester hours in Millsaps College. Honors or High 
Honors may be refused a student who, in the judgment of the faculty, has 
forfeited his right. 

In determining eligibility for Honors or High Honors in the case of 
students who have not done all their college work at Millsaps, the quality 
points earned on the basis of grades made at other institutions will be 
considered, but the student will be considered eligible only if he has the 
required index both on the work done at Millsaps and on his college courses 
as a whole. 

DEAN'S HONOR LIST 
Those meeting the following requirements are honored by inclusion 
on the Dean's List: 

1. Scholarship:

during the semester on which the scholastic average is based; 

(b) The student must have a quality point average for the preced- 
ing semester of 2.00; 

(c) The student must have no mark lower than a D for the pre- 
ceding semester. 

2. Conduct: 

The student must be, in the judgment of the deans, a good citizen 
of the college community.

guardian of each student. These reports indicate, as nearly as practicable, 
the nature of the progress made by the student in his work at the college. 

HOURS PERMITTED 

Fifteen academic semester hours is considered the normal load per 
semester. 

No student may take more than seventeen semester hours of aca- 
demic work unless he has a quality index of 1.5 on the latest previous col- 
lege term or semester. No student may take more than nineteen semester

MILLSAPS COLLEGE 85 

CONDUCT OF STUDENTS 

CLASS ATTENDANCE 
All students are expected to be regular and prompt in their attendance 
upon classes. Each student is therefore required to accept full responsi- 
bility for his own class attendance, subject to the following conditions: 

A. All students are required to attend classes on the two days im- 
mediately preceding and those immediately following a regularly sched- 
uled vacation period. Students absent on such days must obtain written 
permission from the Dean for readmission to classes. 

B. All faculty members are requested to submit regular absence re- 
ports. 

C. Faculty members will report to the appropriate Dean the name 
of any student whose academic standing in a course is being endangered 
by excessive absences. Any student so reported will lose his voluntary 
attendance privilege in the class concerned and may be subject to further 
disciplinary action at the discretion of the Dean. 

ABSENCE FROM TESTS AND EXAMINATIONS 
If a student is absent from an assigned test, he must obtain written 
permission from the Dean in order to take a make-up test. 

Absence from examinations will not be excused except for sickness on 
the day of examination (attested by a physician's certificate), or other 
cause which the faculty by special order may approve. An unexcused 
absence is counted as a total failure in the examination in which it occurs. 
A student whose absence from examination is excused is admitted to a 
special examination ordered by the faculty, to be held within six weeks of 
the opening of the subsequent semester. 

CHAPEL ATTENDANCE 
Attendance at chapel is required of all students one day each week. 
Students who absent themselves from chapel more than two times a semes- 
ter will be required to offer a written explanation of such absences to 
the Dean. If this explanation is not satisfactory, voluntary attendance 
privileges in all classes may be revoked and a penalty of hours and quality 
points may be imposed. 

CHANGE OF SCHEDULE 
A student cannot change classes or drop classes or take up new 
classes except by the consent of the Dean, his faculty adviser, and all fac- 
ulty members concerned. Courses dropped within the first two weeks of a 
semester do not appear on the student's record. Courses dropped after the 
first two weeks and before the middle of a semester are recorded as WP 
(withdrawn passing) or WF (withdrawn failing). Courses dropped after 
the middle of a semester are recorded as failures. If a student drops a 
course at any time without securing the required approvals, he receives an 
F in that course and is sul)ject to further disciplinary action. 

WITHDRAWAL 
A student desiring to withdraw from college within any term must 
obtain permission from the Dean of the college. A withdrawal card must 
be filled out and must l)e approved l)y the Dean or the Registrar. No 



86 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

refund will be considered unless this written notice is procured and pre- 
sented to the Business Office. 

Refunds upon withdrawal will be made only as outlined elsewhere in 
this catalog under the heading of "Financial Regulations." 

A student who withdraws from college with permission after the first 
two weeks of a semester is recorded as WP (withdrawn passing) or WF 
(withdrawn failing) in each course. A student who withdraws without 
permission receives a grade of F in each course. 

Enforced withdrawal is inflicted by the faculty for habitual delin- 
quency 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 pro rata portion of tuition will be re- 
turned, except that students withdrawing under discipline forfeit the right 
to a refund for any charges. 

No student who withdraws from college for whatever reason is en- 
titled to a report card or to a transcript of credits until he shall have 
settled his account in the Business Office. 

AUTOMATIC EXCLUSION 

To remain in college a freshman must pass in the first semester six 
hours of academic work. 

After the first half year a student must pass at least nine hours of 
academic work each semester to continue in college. 

Students who are requested not to re-enter because of academic fail- 
ure may petition in writing for readmission, but such petition will not be 
granted unless convincing evidence is presented that the failure was due 
to unusual causes of a non-recurring nature and that the student will 
maintain a satisfactory record during the subsequent semester.

MILLSAPS COLLEGE 8 9 

RELIGIOUS ACTIVITIES 

Millsaps College, as an institution of the Methodist Church, seeks to 
be a genuinely Christian college. The faculty is made up of scholars who 
are Christians striving to fulfill the highest ideals of personal devotion 
and of community citizenship. The religious life of the college centers 
around the churches of Jackson and the campus religious groups. 

The students are urged to attend a church and church school of their 
own denomination. A chapel or assembly of the entire college provides 
opportunity for worship, inspiration, and business of college-wide concern. 

METHODIST CAMPUS-CHURCH RELATIONS COMMITTEE AND THE 
MILLSAPS CHRISTIAN COUNCIL 

The Christian program of the college is coordinated with the local and 
general program of the Methodist Church through the Campus-Church 
Relations Committee. The various religious activities of the college are 
correlated and unified by the Millsaps Christian Council, composed of 
representatives of all organized religious groups on the campus. This 
council coordinates the activities of the religious groups on the campus and 
sponsors Religious Emphasis Week. 

YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION 

The College Y. M. C. A., which was organized shortly after the col- 
lege was founded, tries to strengthen the spiritual life and influence of 
the college and its members. The association shares vitally in the college 
program for the adjustment of freshmen to the Millsaps community. 
Delegations of members represent the association at state, regional, and 
Blue Ridge, North Carolina, conferences each year. 

YOUNG WOMEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION 

The Y. W. C. A. provides expression for the religious interests of 
Millsaps women through a program similar to that of the Y. M. C. A. It 
holds weekly meetings devoted to the religious needs of college women 
and cooperates in the orientation of new students in campus life. Repre- 
sentatives of the association participate in all of the conferences of the 
Y. W. C. A. and in the Christian Student Movement. 

MINISTERIAL LEAGUE 

Students preparing for the Christian ministry may join the Ministerial 
League, which provides programs appropriate to the needs of students 
interested in Christian life work. Through its activities, the league pro- 
vides opportunity for Christian service for its members and contributes 
much to the religious life of the campus and of the local churches. 

DENOMINATIONAL GROUPS

delegations to the summer conferences of the church at Lake Junaluska, 
North Carolina, and to the Methodist State Student Conference.

groups of the campus, functioning through the Millsaps Christian Council. 
For this week some outstanding religious leader, familiar with student 
life and problems, addresses the student body and various groups of stu- 
dents and professors, and is available for private conference with in- 
dividuals. This series has recently been enriched through the J. Lloyd

ATHLETICS 

Millsaps College has maintained a consistently high athletic standard, 
not only in developing teams for intercollegiate competition, but in pro- 
viding a well rounded program which attempts to bring every student 
in college into some form of athletic competition. 

Purposes of the Millsaps sports program are: 

1. To stimulate better personal strength and health habits through 
the medical examination and physical exercises. 

2. To provide instruction and participation for all in a variety of 
clean, wholesome sports. 

I. INTRAMURAL ATHLETICS FOR MEN. 

In the desire to have a "sports for all" program, the college sponsors 
intramural activities in baseball, basketball, touch football, golf, soft- 
ball, track, tennis, and volley ball. 

The intramural organization is made up of members of each fra- 
teiuity or independent group on the campus. 

Cups are awarded to championship squads in these activities. 

The athletic department offers its facilities to students and faculty 
for individual or group use at any time. These facilities include five tennis 
courts, Softball fields, football field, running track, and gymnasium. 

II. INTERCOLLEGIATE ATHLETICS FOR MEN. 

An intercollegiate athletic program is provided by the college and 
is conducted on a purely amateur basis. The program includes football, 
basketball, baseball, tennis, and track. No athletic scholarships are given, 
and the athletes are not subsidized in any way. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 91 

III. SPORTS FOR AVOMEX 

Women's sports are encouraged for the reason that when properly 
regulated they tend to promote the physical, mental, social, and emotional 
well being of the students, and to foster a wholesome college spirit. 

Millsaps does not sponsor intercollegiate sports for women. The de- 
sire is to have a program in which all girls may participate. The Intra- 
mural program satisfies this need. Sports such as ping-pong, volley- 
ball, basketball, softball, and tennis are offered. 

Women students are encouraged to participate in sports during their 
leisure time. The college offers many facilities for their use — the golf 
course, gymnasium, tennis courts, shuffleboard courts, and others. 

IV. ATHLETIC FACILITIES 

(1) The gymnasium provides a large playing floor for volleyball and 
basketball. It has dressing rooms for all teams, a room for visiting 
teams, trainer's room complete with equipment for injuries, a club room 
for wearers of the "M", a class room, shower and locker rooms for girls, 
and the college book store. The gymnasium has become the center of ac- 
tivities for the students. (2) The baseball diamond, separate from the 
football field, is also used as the intramural football field. There are also 
Softball diamonds. (.3) Five tennis courts have been constructed near 
the gymnasium. (4) A very fine nine hole golf course is available for use 
Ijy all students.

Alpha, and Lambda Chi Alpha — have chapters on the Millsaps campus.

vitations to new students, bidding them to membership in the organiza- 
tion. The new men are given an opportunity during this "rush" period to 
become acquainted with fraternities, and at the end of this time bids

MILLSAPS COLLEGE 99 

HISTORY OF THE COLLEGE 

Founded just over sixty years ago, Millsaps is one of the young- 
est colleges supported by the Methodist Church. It was in the late eighties 
that the Mississippi Methodist Conferences appointed a joint commission 
to formulate plans for a "college for males under the auspicies and con- 
trol of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South." 

Among the members of this commission was Major R. W. Millsaps, 
Jackson businessman and banker, who offered to give $50,000 to endow 
the institution, provided Methodists throughout the state matched this 
amount. 

Under the leadership of Bishop Charles B. Galloway, the Methodists 
met the challenge of Major Millsaps. The charter for the college was 
granted February 21, 1S90, and the college opened its doors in the fall of 
1892. Coeducation was instituted in the seventh session. 

First president of the college was William Belton Murrah, who served 
until 1910. Along with Bishop Galloway and Major Millsaps, Murrah 
is commonly thought of as one of the founders of the college. 

Other presidents have been D. C. Hull, M.A., (1910-1912); A. F. 
Watkins, D.D., (1912-1923); D. M. Key, Ph.D., LL.D., (1923-1938); and 
M. L. Smith, Ph.D., LL.D., who has been president since 19 38. 



BUILDINGS AND GROUNDS 

The campus, covering nearly 100 acres in the center of a beautiful 
residential section and on one of the highest points in the city, is valued 
at nearly two million dollars. 

The administration building, Murrah Hall, was erected in 1914; the 
Carnegie-Millsaps Library building in 1926; the Sullivan-Harrell Science 
Hall in 1928; and the Buie Memorial Gymnasium in 1936. Recent grants 
and gifts have made possible the addition of completely modern equip- 
ment for the science laboratories and the extension of the library stacks. 

A new^ home for the President and a completely new system of drive- 
ways through the campus were constructed in 1949. 

The new Christian Center Memorial Building was completed in 19 50. 
It was made possible by the gifts of Mississippi Methodists, alumni, and 
friends of the college. This building has an auditorium seating more than 
100 persons, a small chapel, classrooms, and offices. 

The James Observatory provides excellent facilities for students of 
astronomy and is also made available on frequent occasions to the citizens 
of Jackson and surrounding areas. 

The campus contains two fields for football and baseball, a track, ten- 
nis courts, and a nine-hole golf course. 

Dormitory facilities are available for both men and women students. 
Founders, Whitworth, and Sanders Halls are the women's dormitories. 
Galloway, Burton, and Woollard Halls house men students.

CARNEGIE FOUNDATION RESEARCH GRANT 

Millsaps College was selected as one of five colleges, with Tulane 
University as the center of an area including Texas, Louisiana, and Missis- 
sippi, to be the recipient of a research grant given by the Carnegie Foun- 
dation for the Improvement of Teaching. This grant amounted to $4,000 a 
year for five years, supplemented by $2,000 a year from the college bud- 
get. During the five years of this grant thirty-three members of the fac- 
ulty availed themselves of the opportunity to improve their teaching 
through special study and research work. 

THE J. LLOYD DECELL LECTURESHIP 

This lectureship was established at Millsaps in 19 48 as a memorial 
to Bishop J. Lloyd Decell (18 87-1946). Bishop Decell took the lead in 
merging the three colleges of Methodism in Mississippi — Whitworth, 
Grenada, and Millsaps. He also set up the campaign for funds known as 
the "Million for the Master". The lectureship foundation of $50,000 was 
a part of the "Million for the Master" fund. The purpose of the lecture- 
ship is to bring to the college men of scholarship in the fields of literature, 
science, philosophy, and religion. Dr. Henry Hitt Crane of the Central 
Methodist Church, Detroit, Michigan, was the first lecturer on this foun- 
dation, December 5-7, 195 0. Dr. D. Elton Trueblood delivered the lec- 
tures February 25-27, 1952.

CARNEGIE-MILLSAPS LIBRARY 

Near tbe close of the session of 1905-06 Andrew Carnegie offered to 
give the college $15,000 for a library building if the trustees would pro- 
vide an endowment of an equal amount. The endowment required was 
given by Major Millsaps. 

In 1925 the Carnegie Corporation appropriated $50,000 for a new 
library building. The present building was completed in 19 26 and pro- 
vides shelves for 50,000 volumes. The furniture for the reading rooms 
was given by the Enochs Lumber and Manufacturing Company. In 1944 
the interior of the library was redecorated and in 1946 additional furniture 
was purchased. 

A special grant of $10,000 for the purchase of books was made by 
the Carnegie Corporation during the five years 1931-1936, and about 4,- 
600 volumes were added from this source. In 1944 the Rockefeller Foun- 
dation made a grant to the library of $15,000 for the purchase of books 
during the years 1944-1948. This sum was matched by the college by a 
like amount to be used for the enlargement and equipment of the library 
building. The General Board of Education of the Methodist Church pro- 
vided $2,500 for the purchase of additional stacks and equipment. The 
income from the Martha A. Turner Fund of $1,000, founded by Mrs. J. R. 
Bingham of Carrollton, Mississippi, is used for the purchase of books in 
English literature. The Carnegie Foundation permits as much as $1,000 of 
its grant for the improvement of teaching through research to be used an- 
nually to provide books needed for research projects. 

During the session of 1941-1942 the Historical Society of the Missis-
