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 1957-58 session of 
the college. The academic calendar of 1958-59 session will be 
found in the back.

THE PURPOSE OF MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

Millsaps College has as its primary aim the development of men and 
women for responsible leadership and well-rounded lives of useful service 
to their fellow men, their country, and their God. It seeks to function as 
a community of learners where faculty and students together seek the 
truth that frees the minds of men. 

An as institution of the Methodist Church, Millsaps College is dedi- 
cated to the idea that religion is a vital part of education; that education 
is an integral part of the Christian religion; and that church-related 
colleges, providing a sound academic program in a Christian environment, 
afford a kind of discipline and influence which no other type of institu- 
tion can offer. The College provides a congenial atmosphere where per- 
sons of all faiths may study and work together for the development of 
their physical, intellectual, and spiritual capacities. 

As a liberal arts college, Millsaps seeks to give the student adequate 
breadth and depth of understanding of civilization and culture in order 
to broaden his perspective, to enrich his personality, and to enable him 
to think and act intelligently amid the complexities of the modern world. 
The curriculum is designed to avoid premature specialization and to 
integrate the humanities, the social studies, and the natural sciences for 
their mutual enrichment. 

The College recognizes that training which will enable a person to 
support himself adequately is an essential part of a well-rounded educa- 
tion. On the other hand, it believes that one of the chief problems of 
modern society is that in too many cases training as expert technicians 
has not been accompanied by education for good citizenship. It offers, 
therefore, professional and pre-professional training balanced by cultural 
and humane studies. In an environment that emphasizes the cultural and 
esthetic values to be found in the study of language, literature, philoso- 
phy, and science, the student at Millsaps can also obtain the necessary 
courses to prepare him for service in such fields as teaching, journalism, 
social work, and business or for professional study in these areas as 
well as in theology, medicine, dentistry, engineering, law, and other fields. 

As an institution of higher learning, Millsaps College fosters an 
attitude of continuing intellectual awareness, of tolerance, and of un- 
biased inquiry, without which true education cannot exist. It does not 
seek to indoctrinate, but to inform and inspire. It does not shape the 
student in a common mold of thought and ideas, but rather attempts to 
search out his often deeply hidden aptitudes, capacities, and aspirations 
and to provide opportunities for his maximum potential development. It 
seeks to broaden his horizons and to lift his eyes and heart toward the 
higher and nobler attributes of life. The desired result is an intelligent, 
voluntary dedication to moral principles and a growing social conscious- 
ness that will guide him into a rich, well-rounded Christian life, with 
ready acceptance of responsibility to neighbor, state, and church.

Trustees of Millsaps College, 1955-56

S MILLSAPS 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 strives to be 
devoutly Christian. During the 1957-5 8 session it numbered in its 
student body members of seventeen denominations and in its faculty mem- 
bers of four 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 9 00 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. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 9 

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 1957-58 session 
fourteen states and seven 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, The Jackson Opera 
Guild, Inc., 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 fully 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 current educational thought by membership in: 

The Association of American Colleges 

The American Council on Education 

The National Commission on Accrediting 

The Commission on Christian Higher Education 

The Southern University Conference 

The Association of Methodist Schools and Colleges 

The Mississippi Association of Colleges

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. 

3. A maximum of 6 4 semester hours of credit will be allowed from a 
junior college. 

4. Full credit is allowed for all junior college academic courses of fresh- 
man and sophomore level and full elective credit allowed for other 
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 pre-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. 

Admission As Special Student 

1. A special student is one who enrolls for less than 12 hours of academic 
work per semester or one who has previously received a baccalaureate 
degree. Students in their senior year taking all the work required to 
complete a degree are not considered special students, even though 
taking less than 12 hours. 

2. For admission as a special student the candidate must be at least 21 
years of age and must present adequate proof of good character and of 
maturity of training. 

3. Special students may enroll for whatever courses they desire without 
regard to graduation requirements, but must in all cases meet the pre- 
requisites for the courses elected by them. 

4. No special student may be recognized as a candidate for a degree 
unless he completes all entrance requirements at least one year before 
the date of graduation. No college credit will be granted until entrance 
requirements are satisfied. 

5. Special students are not permitted to represent the college in inter- 
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. 

COUNSELING PROGRAM 

The fundamental objective of all counseling services is to assist each 
student to be ready and able to accomplish maximum success in his aca- 
demic work. Consequently, every member of the college community par- 
ticipates in counseling, and specialists from the community are used as 
referral resources when the nature of a student's problem requires highly 
specialized therapy. Basically, the divisions of the counseling program 
are as follows: 

1. Pre-Registration Counseling 

In order to assist new and prospective students to plan wisely in 
looking forward to their college careers, the college will provide on 
request counseling services to any prospective student who may desire 
to explore his vocational and educational objectives before he enters 
his classes in the fall semester. 

2. Orientation 

All new students (freshmen and transfers) are expected to be on the 
campus on September 15, 19 58, to participate in the orientation pro- 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 13 

gram. This program is developed and executed cooperatively Ijv stu- 
dents and faculty for the purpose of assisting students to be adequately 
prepared for entering fully into the college program. 

3. Faculty Advisers 

Each new student at Millsaps is assigned to a member of the faculty 
who serves as the adviser for that student with respect to his aca- 
demic program. At the time a student chooses his major field 
of study, his major professor automatically becomes his faculty 
adviser. (^ 

4. Personal Counseling 

Particular attention is given by the Dean of Students and the Dean 
of Women to counseling students on such matters as vocational 
choice, selection of fields of study, study skills, reading skills, emo- 
tional adjustment, and similar typical college student problems. 

5 . Testing 

Each student entering Millsaps takes part in the entrance testing 
program, which is designed to provide information that will assist 
the professional counseling staff to work effectively with him in 
planning his program and activities at the college. In addition, any 
student registered in the college has available to him individual 
testing services to assist him in self-analysis and planning in terms 
of his individual aptitudes, interests, and personality characteristics. 

STUDENT HOUSING 

The housing program of the college is coordinated by the Dean of 
Students and the Dean of Women in cooperation with the dormitory 
housemothers, counselors, and managers. All out-of-town students are 
required to reside in the college housing facilities, unless they have re- 
ceived permission through the Office of Student Personnel to live In ap- 
proved off-campus housing. Students who desire to live with relatives 
or friends while attending Millsaps must make this a matter of record 
in the Office of Student Personnel. 

Men students live in our four men's residence halls or in fraternity 
houses. Women students live in our four women's residence halls. All 
beginning freshmen who are not residents of Jackson are required to live 
in the college dormitories during the entire first semester. No first- 
semester freshmen are permitted to live in fraternity houses. Any men or 
women students whose homes are in Jackson may live in the dormitories 
if space is available, but will be placed only after out-of-town students 
have been assigned. 

Room assignments are made in the order in which students' class- 
room reservation fees have been received. If any student indicates a 
specific preference for a particular room or dormitory, he will be assigned 
to that space if it has not been taken previously by some one whose eligi- 
bility for the room entitles him to it. Students desiring to room together 
should make every effort to forward their reservation fees at the same 
time and specify their desire to room together. 



14 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

After notification of room assignment, a student must accept or re- 
ject the assignment in writing within two weeks of the notification. Room 
rent cannot be refunded after the semester has begun. 

Dormitories open for occupancy at 12 noon of the day preceding 
each term or semester and close at 5 p.m. on the last day of each term or 
semester. All dormitories close at 5 p.m. on the afternoon of the day 
that Christmas holidays begin and re-open at 12 noon on the day 
immediately preceding the day that classes resume following the holiday 
period. No students can be housed in the dormitories during the Christ- 
mas holiday period. 

DINING FACILITIES 

Boarding students eat their meals in the college cafeteria. This 
dining room is under expert supervision and furnishes wholesome food at 
moderate rates. Board may be paid in cash or by use of coupon meal 
tickets available in the College Business Office. Students rooming in 
fraternity houses are considered boarding students. The college grill 
also is available for snacks and quick orders. 

STUDENT HEALTH PROGRAM 

The infirmary, centrally located on the campus and supervised by a 
registered nurse, is available to all resident students. The services of the 
college physician are available through the infirmary. Students with 
minor illnesses are cared for in the infirmary. Any students having 
major illnesses or needing hospital services return home or are referred 
to one of the local hospitals for treatment on a private-patient basis. In 
connection with the college program of preventive medicine, each new stu- 
dent is required to have his family physician complete and mail in a health 
record and physical examination form. This form is a required part of 
the registration procedure. 

THE MILLSAPS COLLEGE UNION 

The heart of a small college is the close relationship between stu- 
dents and faculty. From this relationship pulses the life-blood of the 
campus in the form of mutual confidence, mutual respect, and mutual 
concern for the welfare of the total membership of the college community. 
The Millsaps College Union makes a unique contribution to the College 
by serving as the "living room" of the campus where friends can meet 
for relaxation and enrichment through interpersonal contacts; by pro- 
viding a center for extra-curricular activities; by providing a central 
location for the cafeteria, the grill, the post office, and the book store; 
by serving as a focal point for commuters and off-campus students; and 
by providing a general unifying influence for the entire campus.

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

Tuition per semester hour: 

1 to 11 semester hours inclusive, per hour $15.00 

12 or more semester hours Full tuition and fees 

Students taking only private music lessons or private art lessons 
for college credit pay a registration fee of $5 for each course plus the 
special fees for the courses taken. There is no other charge. 

EXCESS HOURS 
The normal student load is five subjects with either physical educa- 
tion or extra-curricular activities making a maximum of seventeen hours. 
Students registering for courses in excess of seventeen hours will be 
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 custom- 
ary 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. 

Clarification of non-resident status: Students under twenty-one 
years of age use the legal residence of their families. Married students 
and students twenty-one years or over use the legal residence of their 
parents or guardians, or their legal residence immediately prior to regis- 
tration in a school in Mississippi. Children of parents stationed outside 
Mississippi but understood to be primarily residents or citizens of this 
state may be classified as residents. 

Aliens are classified as non-residents. 

REVISION OF CHARGES 
Millsaps College reserves the privilege of changing any or all 
charges at any time without i)rior notice.

Students may be permitted to major in a subject only after careful 
consideration and with the consent of the head of the department. 

A major for each student must be approved by one of the department 
heads not later than the beginning of the junior year. Two cards will be 
signed by the major professor to show approval of the choice of a major, 
and these cards will be kept on file, one with the Registrar's Office and one 
with the major professor. 

No junior or senior registration will be accepted as complete by the 
Registrar's Office without the signed approval of the major professor. 

For failing to maintain a C average or for other good cause, a student 
may change his major or be advised by his major professor to change his 
major as late as October 1 of his senior year. He must submit to the 
Registrar's Office on regular form (obtainable from the Registrar's Office) 
the express permission of both the Dean and the head of the proposed new 
major department. 

Transfer credit will be accepted toward a major only with the ap- 
proval of the department. 
0. 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- 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 31 

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 
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 
teachers trained at Millsaps College and to be of service to school offi- 
cials who wish to secure efficient 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. The following 
course of study will meet the requirements for a Millsaps degree and at 
the same time qualify the student for the Class A Elementary Certificate 
and the Class A Secondary Certificate.

dent to take six hours of Geology, Chemistry, or Physics rather than 
three. This should be taken in the Sophomore year, which will leave 
room for a three-hour elective in the Junior year. 

**If the student has credit for two years of language in high school 
and continues the same language in college, this second year of language 
is not required.

PRE-EXGIXEERIXG 

This program at Millsaps offers many opportunities for the student 
interested in engineering. 

3-3 Engineering B.S. Program: At present we have arrangements with 
three engineering schools — Columbia University, The University of Mis- 
sissippi, and Vanderbilt University — by which a student may attend Mill- 
saps for three years for a total of 110 hours or more and then continue 
his work at either of the three schools listed above, transferring back 
18 hours or less for a B.S. degree from Millsaps and at the end of the 
fifth year receive his engineering degree from the engineering school. 

4-2 Master's Program in Engineering: Columbia University also has 
a 4-2 program in which a student attends Millsaps for four years, com- 
pleting his degree requirements and then spending two more years at 
Columbia to obtain a Master's degree in Engineering. 

Columbia University offers degrees in Civil, Electrical, Industrial, 
Mechanical, Metallurgical, Mining, and Chemical Engineering. The Uni- 
versity of Mississippi offers B.S. degrees in Civil, Geological, Chemical, 
and Engineering Administration. Vanderbilt University offers Bachelor 
of Engineering degrees in Chemical, Civil, Electrical, and Mechanical 
Engineering. 

Below is listed the course of study leading to the degrees listed above. 
The course is the same for all degrees at the three schools with the ex- 
ception of Chemical Engineering, and the substitute courses for it are 
also listed. 

For further information on these programs, write to Chairman, 
Mathematics Department, Millsaps College.

In cooperation with Duke University School of Forestry, Millsaps Col- 
lege now offers a course in Forestry. Under this program, a student plan- 
ning a career in F'orestry will spend three years in residence at Millsaps 
College pursuing a liberal arts course with the basic sciences needed for 
forestry. At the end of the three years he will have earned at least 110 
hours. He will then transfer to Duke University School of Forestry for 
the next two years. By transferring back 18 hours, he will receive a B.S. 
degree from Millsaps College at the end of the fourth year and a degree

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 
hare been coordinated so as to make possible this exchange of students 
between the two campuses. Courses at Belhaven College cost the student 
$10 per semester hour. 

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. 

THE WASHINGTON SEMESTER 

"The "Washington Semester" is a joint arrangement between The 
American University, Washington, D. C, Millsaps College and 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. 

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.

EMERITUS PROFESSOR HAMILTON 
ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR COULLET 
EMERITUS PROFESSOR SANDERS 

The ideas and culture of Greece and Rome live on today in their con- 
tributions to the culture of Western civilization. Intimate contact with 
the very words which express the aspirations of those great spirits whose 
influence has been so abiding and formative in the modern world should 
help shape the student's character to fine and worthy purposes. Further- 
more, this undertaking affords a most rigorous exercise in the scientific 
method, producing habits and reflexes of accuracy, efficiency, and system. 

Credit is not given for one semester of the elementary course unless 
the other semester is completed. 

LATIN 
A1-A2. Elementary Latin. — Designed for students who have undertaken 
no previous study of the language. Mastery of declensions and con- 
jugations, of syntax and sentence structure; familiarity with the Latin 
thought order and the technique of translation. A large amount of easy 
reading is required. Vocabulary is enlarged and sight reading is practiced 
during the second semester. Six hours credit. Mrs. Coullet. 

11-12. Intermediate Latin. — The first semester is given over to review of 
forms, syntax, and sentence structure, and their application in trans- 
lation and sight reading of moderately difficult Latin and the reading of 
Caesar is begun. The second semester is devoted to the translation of 
selections from Caesar, Plautus, and Ovid. Six hours credit. Dr. Hamil- 
ton, Mrs. Coullet. 
Prerequisite: Latin A1-A2 or two units of high school Latin. 

21. Vergil and Ovid. — Two books of the Aeneid and selections from the 
Metamorphoses. This course is a continuation of Latin 11-12, and is

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

GRADES, HONORS, CLASS STANDING 

GRADING SYSTEM 

The grade 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 for 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 128 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. 



86 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 he 
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

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

MILLSAPS COLLEGE 8 7 

ADMINISTRATIVE REGULATIONS 

CLASS ATTENDANCE 

A student who has not been placed on either academic or attendance 
probation has the privilege of being absent from classes on occasions which 
necessitate such absences. The intent of this privilege is that students 
with good academic standing are expected to be prompt and regular in 
attendance, but do not have to secure the approval of the Dean for each 
absence incurred. The specific regulations pertaining to students in this 
classification are as follows: 

All students are expected to be regular and prompt in their attendance 
upon classes. Each student is, therefore, required to accept full re- 
sponsibility for his own class attendance. If a student is absent from 
a class four times without an explanation to the Dean, he will be 
placed on attendance probation. 

At the discretion of the faculty, special attendance privileges may be 
granted to those students who are on the Dean's List. 

All students are required to attend classes on the two days immedi- 
ately preceding and those immediately following a regularly scheduled 
vacation period. The following regulations apply: 

a. Students absent on such days will be placed on attendance 
probation. 

b. In order to be removed from this attendance probation, a stu- 
dent must submit a written statement concerning his absence 
to the Dean, accompanied by a written statement from a phy- 
sician to certify that the student was sufficiently ill to be 
unable to attend his classes. 

c. Absences from classes on these days for any other reason 
than certified illness may be approved only by action of the 
Administrative Committee or by vote of the faculty of the 
college. 

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. The request 
for this permission must be submitted in writing to the Dean within one 
week after the student returns to classes. 

The following regulations apply to examinations: 

a. An absence from a final examination may be excused by the 
Dean only on the basis of illness on the day of the exami- 
nation. This illness must be certified by a written state- 
ment by a physician to the effect that the student was suf- 
ficiently ill to be unable to attend the examination. 

b. Absences from an examination due to dire emergencies other 
than illness may be excused only by action of the Adminis- 
trative Committee of the college or by vote of the faculty 
acting upon written request. 



88 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

c. Students missing examinations must submit their written 
excuses within two weeks of the absence. The special exami- 
nation, if granted, must be held within the first six weeks of 
the subsequent semester. 

CHAPEL ATTENDANCE 

Regular chapel attendance is required of all students one day each 
week. Any student who is absent from chapel three or more times in one 
semester will be required to offer a written explanation of his absence to 
the Dean. If this explanation is not satisfactory, the student will be 
placed on probation, and a penalty of hours and quality points may be 
imposed. 

PROBATION 
Probation is defined as follows: 
Academic Probation: — 

Students who pass enough work to remain in college but 
make in any semester a quality index of less than 0.5 will 
be placed on probation. 

Attendance Probation: — 

a. Upon the recommendation of the instructor involved, a stu- 
dent may be placed on probation in a course in which his ir- 
regular attendance endangers his academic standing in the 
course. Probationary rules apply to such a student only in 
the course in which he is reported as being on attendance 

probation. 

b. Any student who is absent from any class for four consecu- 
tive times without satisfactory explanation to the Dean will 
be placed on attendance probation by the Dean. 

Disciplinary Probation: — 

Students guilty of serious infractions of the regulations of 
the college may at the discretion of the appropriate dean or 
faculty committee be placed on disciplinary probation. Pro- 
bationary attendance regulations will apply for such a stu- 
dent in all courses in which he is enrolled. 

Attendance regulations for probationary students are as follows: 

a. All excuses for absences are issued by the Dean. 

b. If an absence is necessary, the probationary student is urged 
to confer with the Dean before missing class. In case of an 
emergency where it is not feasible to see the Dean before the 
absence, the student should bring a written excuse to the 
Dean within one week after returning to classes. 

c. Excuses for absences due to illness should be supported by 
signed statements of the physician or the nurse in attend- 
ance. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 89 

d. Penalties for unexcused absences will normally take the form 
of deductions of hours and quality points earned by the stu- 
dent at Millsaps College according to the following formula: 

Classes of fifty-minutes duration: 
Unexcused 

absences Penalty 

3 One credit hour and one quality point 

5 Two credit hours and two quality points 

8 Three credit hours and three quality points 

11 Four credit hours and four quality points 

For each additional three absences there is a penalty of one 

additional credit hour and one quality point. 

Classes or independent laboratory courses of seventy-five 

minutes or longer duration: 

Unexcused 

absences Penalty 

2 One credit hour and one quality point 

3 Two credit hours and two quality points 

5 Three credit hours and three quality points 

7 Four credit hours and four quality points 

For each additional two absences there is a penalty of one 
additional credit hour and one quality point. 

Students who are on probation may be removed by making a 1.00 
quality point index during a regular semester or during a summer session 
at Millsaps College in which the student is enrolled for at least twelve 
hours credit. A student is asked not to re-enroll at Millsaps College if 
he is on academic probation more than two semesters during his college 
program. 

SENIOR EXEMPTIONS 

Seniors may be exempt from final examinations in all subjects in 
which they have maintained a grade of C. These exemptions are allowed 
only at the end of the semester in which they take the comprehensive exam- 
ination for graduation. It shall be understood, however, that this exemp- 
tion does not insure the student a final grade of C, since daily grades dur- 
ing the last two weeks shall count in the final average. Under no circum- 
stances may a student be exempt from any examination in more than one 
term or semester. 

Students may be exempt from final examinations only in the semes- 
ter in which they take their comprehensive, scholastic requirements being 
met. 

CHANGE OP 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 
faculty 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 



90 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

a course at any time without securing the required approvals, he receives 
an F in that course and is subject 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 be approved by the Dean or the Registrar. No re- 
fund will be considered unless this written notice is procured and presented 
to the Business Office. 

Refunds upon withdrawals 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 stu- 
dent at any time. In such a case, the pro rata portion of tuition will be 
returned, 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 set- 
tled 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. 

The maximum number of semesters a student may be on academic 
probation without automatic exclusion is two. 

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'. 

CONDUCT 

The rules of the college require from every student decorous, sober, 
and upright conduct as long as he remains a member of the college, 
whether he be within its precincts or not. Because Millsaps students are 
well-known for their exemplary conduct, there are few stated restrictions. 

Secret marriages, gambling, and use or possession of beverage alcohol 
are violations of college policy. Additional policies relative to the conduct 
of students are found in the handbook. Students are expected to fami- 
liarize themselves with these regulations, since they are accountable for 
observance of them.

Each week the administration, the faculty, and the students come to- 
gether for a chapel service in the Christian Center. This is a formal wor- 
ship service. Each Sunday morning the Holy Communion is administered 
for the college community. 

The Christian Council is a student group made up of representatives 
from all the religious groups on the campus. The Director of Religious 
Life serves as counselor for the group. Many denominations are repre- 
sented in the student body. Each is given the opportunity to organize a 
group and given a time to meet. The YWCA and the YMCA are given the 
opportunity to organize and promote an interdenominational program. 

Students preparing for the Christian ministry may join the Minis- 
terial League, which provides programs and field work appropriate to the 
needs of students interested in Christian life work. Through its activities, 
the league provides opportunity for Christian service for its members and 
contributes much to the religious life of the campus, to the local churches, 
and to such institutions as the Methodist Children's Home and the local 
hospitals. 

A similar organization for young women going into full-time Christian 
work is the Women Christian Workers. Their program and activities 
also provide opportunity for worship and Christian service on and off the 
campus. 

There are other opportunities for worship such as morning watch, 
evening vespers, and organized prayer groups in the dormitories. These 
services provide opportunity for participation by all students. The worship 
services are planned by the students themselves. 

There are periods of special emphasis on religion, such as Pre-Easter 
services and Religious Emphasis Week. The annual Religious Emphasis 
Week is sponsored by all the religious groups of the campus, functioning 
through the Christian Council working with the Religious Activities Com- 
mittee of the faculty. For this week some outstanding religious leader, 
familiar with student life and problems, addresses the student body and 
various groups of students and professors and is available for private con- 
ference with individuals. Other discussion group leaders are brought in to 
participate in this program. This series has been enriched through the 
J. Lloyd Decell Lecture Foundation. Speakers of recent years have in- 
cluded Dr. W. A. Smart, Dr. Marshall Steel. Dr. W. B. Selah, Dr. Mack 
Stokes, Dr. Henry Hitt Crane, Dr. D. Elton Trueblood, Dr. George Baker, 
Dr. George Buttrick, Bishop John Wesley Lord. Dr. W. J. Cunningham, 
Dr. Peter Bertocci, Dr. W. C. Newman, and Dr. Marjorie Reeves.

All administrators and faculty members consider it part of their 
responsibility to counsel with students about their religious life. This 
helps the student come to a mature interpretation of the total life experi- 
ence. Religion is considered a very necessary factor in this maturing 
process. 

The Town and Country teacher offers courses in the Religion De- 
partment bearing on the opportunities and responsibilities of the parish 
ministry. This teacher counsels with those students holding churches 
and those preparing to go into the active ministry. He helps them in 
setting up adequate programs in their parishes. He is interested also in 
the lay student who wishes to prepare better for active work in the 
church as a layman. 

Through the religious groups on the campus the students are encour- 
aged to participate in the program of the Youth Fellowship in local 
churches. They are also encouraged to attend important conferences, 
assemblies, and camps. Students also work on Youth Caravans and help 
in Vacation Church Schools in the summer months. 

Millsaps campus has become a conference center. Such groups as 
the Christian Vocation Conference and the Methodist Student Movement 
meet here from time to time. These groups bring religious leaders and 
young people to the campus. Campus students take advantage of such 
programs. 



ATHLETICS 

The athletic policy of Millsaps College is based on the premise that 
athletics exist for the benefit of the students and not primarily to enhance 
the prestige and publicity of the college. 

It is believed that competitive sports, conducted in an atmosphere 
of good sportsmanship and fair play, can make a significant contribution, 
in the same way as other student activities, to the complete physical, emo- 
tional, moral, and mental development of the well-rounded individual and 
that they are thus an integral part of a program of liberal education. 
Toward this end, an attempt is made to provide a sports-for-all program 
and to encourage as many students as possible to participate in some form 
of intramural or intercollegiate athletic competition. 

The entire program is under the supervision of the Faculty Commit- 
tee on Athletics. Specific policies are as follows: 

A. Intramural Athletics 

1. The program for men provides competition among campus organiza- 
tions in speedball, basketball, volleyball, softball, tennis, and golf. 
Rules are made and administered by the Intramural Council, com- 
posed of student representatives with the Director of Athletics and 
a member of the Faculty Committee on Athletics as ex-officio mem- 
bers, subject to the approval of this committee. A student who par- 
ticipates in one-half of the scheduled contests of his intramural 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 95 

team in two major sports or one major and one minor sport shall 
receive one semester hour of extracurricular credit in Physical 
Education for the academic year. 

2. The program for women is administered by a faculty Director, as- 
sisted by the Majorette Club, whose student members head the teams 
that compete in such sports as badminton, volleyball, tennis, basket- 
ball, and Softball. Election to this club provides recognition for 
athletic participation. 

e. Intercollegiate Athletics 

1. The program for men includes football, basketball, baseball, tennis, 
and a limited program in golf. There is no intercollegiate program 
for women. 

2. The program is conducted on a purely amateur basis. This means 
specifically: 

a. No athletic scholarships are given, and athletes are not sub- 
sidized in any way. 

b. There is no discrimination for or against athletes in the awarding 
of scholarships and other regular financial aid given by the col- 
lege to worthy students as described in the college catalog. 

c. All such aid is administered by the Faculty Awards Committee. 
Athletic ability is not a factor in such awards, and no one is 
granted or denied aid because of athletic ability or participation. 

d. No student is required to participate in athletics as a condition 
for receiving or retaining any scholarship or other financial aid. 

e. No student who takes pay from any source or in any form for 
participation in intercollegiate athletics is eligible. 

f. No student who has participated in organized professional sports 
is eligible. 

g. No student may participate for more than four seasons in any 
sport, including participation in junior colleges or other senior 
colleges which the student may have attended. 

3. Only regularly enrolled full-time students are eligible for intercol- 
legiate competition. 

4. Those who participate in intercollegiate athletics are required to 
observe and maintain the same academic standards as other students. 

5. In scheduling games, preference is given first to members of the 
athletic conference to which Millsaps belongs, and second to other 
colleges that conduct an athletic program on an amateur basis similar 
to that at Millsaps. When necessary to secure an adequate schedule, 
games are played with schools that operate a subsidized program on 
a frank and open basis. Games are not scheduled with schools that 
attempt to conceal subsidization of athletes while professing ama- 
teurism. 

C. 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 



96 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

room for wearers of the "M", a class room, and shower and locker 
rooms for girls. The gymnasium has become the center of activities 
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. Three tennis courts have been constructed near the gymnasium. 

4. A very fine nine-hole golf course is available for use by all students. 

SOCIAL ORGANIZATIONS 

Social events play an important part in student life at Millsaps. The 
social organizations are founded on the belief that man is a social being 
and enjoys fellowship. They strive for high ideals and make a valuable 
contribution to the college and the individual in teaching students to live 
together. 

There are four fraternities, four sororities, and a women's inde- 
pendent group at Millsaps. The fraternities and sororities are all mem- 
bers of well-established national Greek-letter organizations which maintain 
chapters at Millsaps. The independent group is a member of the National 
Independent Student Association. 

The sororities are Beta Sigma Omicron, Chi Omega, 
Kappa Delta, and Phi Mu. 

The fraternities are Kappa Alpha, Kappa Sigma, Lamb- 
da Chi Alpha, and Pi Kappa Alpha. 

The women's independent group is the Vikings. 

Any student who desires to join the National Independent Student 
Association should indicate this desire to the officers of Vikings. Stu- 
dents not members of a sorority are eligible for membership. 

Fraternities and sororities select students for membership during 
a week of school known as Rush Week. At the end of Rush Week 
these organizations offer "bids" to the students whom they have selected. 
Eligibility for membership in fraternities and sororities is governed by 
the following regulations: 

A. General Ck>nditions 

1. Only bona fide regular students (carrying at least 12 academic

bility of its prospective initiates from the Registrar prior to the

MILLSAPS COLLEGE 105 

HISTORY OF THE COLLEGE 

Founded over sixty-seven years ago, Millsaps is one of tlie 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 auspices and con- 
trol of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South." 

Among the members of this commission w^as Major Reuben Webster 
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 Betts Galloway, the Method- 
ists met the challenge of Major Millsaps. The charter for the college was 
granted February 21, 189 0, 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. IVI. Key, Ph.D., LL.D., (1923-1938); M. L. 
Smith, Ph.D. LL.D., (1938-1952); and H. E. Finger, Jr., B.D., D.D., who 
has been president since 1952. 

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 
Sullivan-Harrell Science Hall in 1928; and the Btiie Memorial Gymnasium 
in 1936. 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. Recent grants and gifts have 
made possible the addition of completely modern equipment for the 
science laboratories. 

The Christian Center Building was completed in 1950. It was made 
possible by the gifts of Mississippi Methodist, alumni, and friends of 
the college. This building has an auditorium seating more than 1000 
persons, a small chapel, classrooms, and offices. 

In 1955 the Carnegie-Millsaps Library was modernized and enlarged 
to three times its former size. It was the first building to be constructed 
with the Million-for-Millsaps funds and has been renamed the :\Iillsaps- 
Wilson Library. 

The most recently completed building, also financed from the Mil- 
lions-for-Millsaps funds, is the Student Union Building. This building 
houses the office of the Director of Religious Life, the food services, the 



106 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

bookstore, the post office, the student activity quarters, and recreation 
area. This building was completed in 1957. 

Two new residence halls, Fae Franklin for women and Ezelle for 
men, will be completed by the fall semester of 19 58. This will expand 
the current facilities which include for women Founders, Whitworth, 
Sanders and for men Burton, Galloway. 

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

FINANCIAL RESOURCES 

The productive endowment, according to the latest audit, amounted 
to $2,495,541.50. In addition to the income from this endowment, the 
college budget receives from the two Methodist Conferences in Missis- 
sippi $92,000 annually. The statement of total assets derived from the 
last official audit, June 1957, is as follows: 

Current Fund $ 123,417.59 

Endowment Funds 2,495,541.50 

Million for Millsaps Pledges Receivable 246,208.63 

Plant Fund - 2,869,789.95 

Total $5,73 4,9 57.6 7 

THE J. LLOYD DECELL LECTURESHIP 

This lectureship was established at Millsaps in 19 48 as a memorial 
to Bishop J. Lloyd Decell (1887-1946). 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 
established by the college. The purpose of the lectureship is to bring to 
the college men of scholarship in the fields of literature, science, philoso- 
phy, and religion. Dr. Henry Hitt Crane of the Central Methodist Church, 
Detroit, Michigan, was the first lecturer on this foundation December 
5-7, 1950. Dr. D. Elton Trueblood delivered the lectures February 25- 
27, 1952. Dr. George C. Baker, of Southern Methodist University, was the 
speaker February 2 3-25, 19 53. Dr. George Buttrick was the speaker May 
5-7, 1954. Bishop John Wesley Lord was the speaker February 21-23, 
1955. Dr. W. J. Cunningham was the speaker February 20-22, 1956. Dr. 
Peter Bertocci was the speaker February 4-6, 1957. Dr. Marjorie Reeves, 
noted scholar and historian of Oxford University, Oxford, England, was 
the speaker March 2 5-26, 1958. 

THE MILLSAPS LIBRARY 

Near the close of the session of 1905-06 Andrew Carnegie offered 
to give the college $15,000 for a library building if the trustees would 
provide an endowment of an equal amount. The endowment required 
was given by Major Millsaps. In 1025 the Carnegie Corporation ap- 
propriated $50,000 for a new library building, which was completed in 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 107 

1926 and provided shelves for 50,000 volumes. The furniture for the read- 
ing 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. 

Work began in September, 1954, on enlarging, remodeling, and 
modernizing this structure into what now appears to be an entirely new 
building. It is designed to accommodate a student body of 1,000 and to 
house approximately 8 5,000 volumes. Money for this construction came 
through the Million for Millsaps Campaign and the generosity of the H. 
J. Wilson family of Hazlehurst. The spacious, attractive building was 
formally opened and dedicated with fitting ceremony on September 29, 
1955, as the Millsaps-Wilson Library. 

A special grant of $10,000 for the purchase of books was made by 
the Carnegie Corporation during the five years 1931-36, and about 4,600 
volumes were added from this source. In 1944 the Rockefeller Founda- 
tion made a grant to the library of $15,000 for the purchase of books dur- 
ing the years 1944-48. 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. At the present time the library contains approximately 
40,000 volumes. 

For many years the library has had on its shelves books which were 
given by Dr. Alfred Allen Kern, former professor of English and Librarian 
at Millsaps College. We were happy to receive an additional gift of books 
from Dr. Kern's personal library which he presented in honor of the new 
Millsaps-Wilson Library. 

During the past academic year contributions have been made to the 
library for the purchase of books in memory of the Rev. Casper W. Avery, 
Mrs. Mary B. Stone, Mrs. Bernice Bush, the Rev. Luke Alford, Mrs. J. E. 
J. Ferguson, Dr. J. M. Sullivan, Mr. C. R. Grimes, Mr. Joseph Hart, Mrs. 
Walter Spiva, Sr., Mr. and Mrs. J. T. Calhoun, Curtis H. Mullen, III, Mrs. 
Richard C. Clark, and Dr. William E. Riecken. In addition, Mr. and Mrs. 
F. M. Jackson made a contribution in honor of Mr. and Mrs. R. L. Ezelle. 

During the session of 1941-42 the Historical Society of the Mississippi 
Conference placed its valuable collection of books and papers relating to 
Mississippi Methodist history in a special room in the library. A collection 
of documents, manuscripts, and books on Methodism in Mississippi has 
been begun, and gifts of material related to this subject will be especially
