Father of Wisdom, Master of the Schools of 
Men, of thine all-knowledge grant me this my 
prayer: that i may be wise in thee. slnk thou 
my Foundations down deep into Thy bosom until 
they rest upon the vast rock of thy counsel. 
Lift Thou my walls into the clear empyrean of 
Thy Truth. Cover me with the wings that 
shadow from all harm. lay my threshold in 
honor and my lintels in love. set thou my 
floors in the cement of unbreakable friendship and 
may my windows be transplanted with honesty. 
Lead Thou unto me, Lord God, those whom Thou 
hast appointed to be my children, and when they 
shall come who would learn of me the wisdom of 
the years, let the crimson of my windows glow 
with the Light of the World. Let them see, 
my Lord, Him Whom thou hast shown me; let 
them hear Him Whose voice Has whispered to me 
and let them reach out their hands and touch 
Him Who has gently led me unto this good day. 
Rock-ribbed may i stand for Thy Truth. Let the 
storms of evil beat about me in valn. may i 
safely shelter those who come unto me from 
the winds of error. let the lightning that lies 
in the cloud of ignorance break upon my head in 
despair. may the young and the pure and the 
clean-hearted put their trust securely in me nor [ 
may any that ever come to my halls for guidance 
be sent astray. let the blue ashlars of my 
breast thrill to the happy songs of the true- 
hearted and may the very heart of my campus 
shout for joy as it feels the tread of those who 
march for god. all this i pray of thee; and yet 
this, more: that there may be no stain upon my 
stones, forever. amen.

The details of the management of Oglethorpe University 
are handled by an Executive Committee of twenty-one men. 
The General Board of Trustees and Founders meets at least 
once each year, at commencement time, on the university 
campus near Atlanta, to inspect the institution, to review all 
matters of large importance in the University, and to give 
directions to the Executive Committee which is elected by 
them and from their number, and which attends to the 
details of management of the Institution between the meet- 
ings of the Board of Founders. Each member of the Board 
represents a gift of two thousand dollars or more to the 
University, or an annual gift of not less than $100.00. 

Thus there is no one associated with the ownership or 
control of the institution in an important capacity who is 
not making a personal sacrifice in its behalf. 

Nothing more ideal has ever been proposed in the man- 
agement of an institution. It is already in operation and 
its perfect practicability is largely responsible for the mar- 
velous success of the University. 

Prospective students will not fail to note the quality of 
these men, representing the thousands of men and women 
whose sacrifices and prayers have consummated this fine pur- 
pose. As representatives and governors of the Institution they 
will take pleasure in giving any inquirers information as to 
the aims and progress of the University.

Oglethorpe University 17 


The historical genesis of Oglethorpe University takes us 
back to the middle of the eighteenth century when, under 
the leadership of Presbyterian men, Princeton College was 
founded in New Jersey and rapidly became the institution 
largely patronized by the young men from Presbyterian 
families all over the world. After a while the long distances 
which must be traveled by stage or on horseback, suggested 
the building of a similar institution under the auspices of 
Presbyterianism in the South. The movement began with 
the Spring meeting of Hopewell Presbytery in the year 1823, 
and eventuated in the founding of a manual school, and this, 
in turn, became Oglethorpe College in 1835 when Midway 
Hill, in the suburbs of Milledgeville, then the capital of the 
State of Georgia, was chosen for the location of the Institu- 
tion. Old Oglethorpe College was thus the first denomina- 
tional college or university between the Atlantic and Pacific 
oceans south of the Virginia line, and, of a right, claimed to 
be the Alma Mater of all that brilliant company of institu- 
tions which were born after her in this vast empire. 

The facilities of the old Oglethorpe were adequate for 
the time. The main building was probably the handsomest 
college structure in the Southeast when it was erected, and 
"contained the finest college chapel in the United States not 
excepting Yale, Harvard or Princeton." 

In the Faculty of the Institution may be found the names 
of men who are world-famous. Among these were Joseph 
Le Conte, the great geologist; James Woodrow, the brilliant 
and devoted Christian and Scientist; Samuel K. Talmadge, the 
eminent administrator, and many others. It is, perhaps, the 
chief glory of old Oglethorpe that after three years of in- 
struction she graduated Sidney Lanier in the famous class of 
1860 and that he was a tutor to her sons until the Spring 
of '61 when with the Oglethorpe cadets he marched away 

18 Oglethorpe University 

to the wars. Shortly before his death, Lanier, looking back 
over his career, remarked to a friend that the greatest moral 
impulse of his life had come to him during his college days 
at Oglethorpe through the influence of Dr. Woodrow. Her 
other eminent alumni include governors, justices, modera- 
tors of the General Assembly, discoverers, inventors and a 
host of honest, industrious and superb laborers for the high- 
est ideals of humanity. 

Oglethorpe, "died at Gettysburg," for during the war her 
sons were soldiers, her endowment was in Confederate bonds, 
and her buildings, used as barracks and hospital, were later 
burned. An effort was made to revive the institution in the 
70's and to locate it in Atlanta, but the evils of reconstruction 
clays and financial disaster made the adventure impossible and 
unsuccessful, and after a year and a half of struggle the doors 
were closed for the second time. 

Only thirteen years have passed since the campaign to re- 
found began and they have been years of financial disaster 
and utter turmoil, yet the assets and subscription pledges of 
the institution have passed the sum of a million dollars as 
the result of unusual and self-sacrificing liberality on the part 
of over five thousand people. 

The comer stone of Oglethorpe University was laid on 
January 21, 1915, with her trustful motto engraved upon it: 
"Manu Dei Resurrexit" (By the Hand of God She has Risen 
from the Dead.) 


Oglethorpe University opened her doors in the Fall of 1916. 
After fifty years of rest beneath the gray ashes of fratricidal 
strife she rose to breathe the airs of a new day. Her first 
building, constructed of granite, trimmed with limestone, 
covered with slate and as near fireproof as human skill can 
make it, was ready for occupaney in the Fall of 1916, when 

Oglethorpe University 19 

her first class gathered on her beautiful campus on Peach- 
tree Road. A faculty equal to that of any cognate institu- 
tion in the country has been formed. The work of raising 
funds and new construction goes steadily on. And all of this 
has been done in the midst of financial disaster that darkened 
the spirit of the whole nation, and against the evil influences 
of a colossal war, which caused the very joints of the world 
to gape. 

The story of the resurrection of Oglethorpe reads like a 
romance. Beginning only twelve years ago with a contribu- 
tion of $100.00 a year for ten years, it soon gathered with it 
a band of great-hearted Atlanta men who determined to see 
that their city had a university, as well as a band of far-see- 
ing educational leaders, who wished to erect a certain high 
type of institution in this splendid metropolis. The story 
of how dollar was added to dollar during a campaign of 
four years; of how no less than seventy Atlanta men gave 
each $1,000.00 or more to the enterprise; of how the story 
has been told in cities, towns and country all over the South 
from Galveston, Texas, to Charlottesville, Virginia, and from 
Marshall, Missouri, to Bradentown, Florida; the splendid 
triumph of the Atlanta campaign staged in this city just 
eleven years ago; all this is well known. Since that time the 
same wonderful record has been maintained. There are now 
something like five thousand men, women and children all 
of whom have contributed or promised from fifty cents to 
$75,000.00. They are the Founders of the University; they 
belong to the great Founders' Club which is carrying the 
movement forward so splendidly. 


An idea of the quality of construction and design of the 
institution may be gained from the accompanying illustra- 
tions. (See Frontispiece.) 

20 Oglethorpe University 

It will be seen that the architects and landscape artist 
spared no pains to make it one of the really beautiful uni- 
versities of America. The architecture is Collegiate Gothic; 
the building material is a beautiful blue granite trimmed 
with limestone. All the buildings will be covered with heavy 
variegated slates. The construction is of steel, concrete, 
brick and hollow tile. The first building is the one on the 
right of the entrance seen in the foreground of the bird's- 
eye view. The new building, given by Mr. and Mrs. Lupton, 
our beloved benefactors, is the one with the tower just oppo- 
site on the left of the entrance. The total cost of construc- 
tion of the buildings shown in the above design with the 
landscape work required, will be approximately $3,000,000. 
The building plan will be followed out in its entirety. 


But it is not so much the magnificent exterior of the in- 
stitution about which the men who are founding Oglethorpe 
are most concerned, it is the spiritual and intellectual life of 
their university. To that end they have resolved to form a 
faculty and adopt a curriculum that will be of the highest 
possible quality, their thought being excellence in every de- 
partment. They will take the superb traditions of the old 
Oglethorpe and add the best of this present age to them. 
Doubtless Oglethorpe will be a big university some day, but 
she is already a great one, and it is greatness rather than 
bigness which her founders crave most for her. 


In the Founders' Room at Oglethorpe there will be a Book 
containing the name of every man, woman and child who 
aided in the founding of the University, arranged alphabeti- 
cally, by states. That Book will be accessible to every stu- 
dent and visitor who may want to know who it was from 
his or her home that took part in the doing of this, the 

Oglethorpe University 21 

greatest deed that has been attempted for our sons and 
daughters in this generation. The Book is not yet complete, 
because the work is not yet finished, and each month is add- 
ing many to this role of honor, whose names will thus be 
preserved in the life and archives of Oglethorpe University 


In the tower of the new building given by Mr. and Mrs. 
J. T. Lupton, is installed a clock and chimes, the gift of 
Mrs. H. Frederick Lesh, of Newton Center, Mass. There are 
two dials to the clock, and they are illuminated at night. It 
is interesting to note that this is the only tower clock in 
Atlanta and the only chimes on any college campus in Geor- 
gia. On the largest of the bells, which weighs a ton, is the 
following inscription: 

We were given by 

Grace Josephine Lesh 

That the hours at Oglethorpe 

Might be filled with 

Music and Harmony. 


The Board of Directors of Oglethorpe University, realizing 
the responsibility upon them of selecting a faculty whose 
spiritual and intellectual equipment should be capable of 
satisfying the tremendous demand of a really great institu- 
tion of learning, has spared no effort or pains in securing a 
body of men who would not only possess that first requisite 
of a teacher, a great soul, but should also have those two 
other requisites of almost equal importance: power of im- 
parting their ideals and knowledge, and intellectual acquire- 
ments adequate for their department. The most important 
element in education is the creating in the student of an in- 

22 Oglethorpe University 

tense yearning for and delight in the Good, the True and the 
Beautiful, and the first essential for the creation of such a 
spirit is the example set before him by the Faculty. The 
University now has a corps of teachers unsurpassed in any 
institution of its size and age. The names are given in the 
order of their election.

The purpose of Oglethorpe University is to offer courses 
of study leading to the higher academic and professional 
degrees, under a Christian environment, and thus to train 
young men who wish to become specialists in professional 
and business life and teachers in our High Schools and 
Colleges, and to supply the growing demand for specially 
equipped men in every department of human activity. 

Students who are looking forward to university work are 
invited to correspond with the President, in order that they 
may be putting themselves in line for the advanced courses 
which are to be offered. 

Adequate Library and Laboratory facilities are being pro- 
vided as the need for them arises. Free use will be made 
of the city of Atlanta, in itself a remarkable laboratory of 
industrial and scientific life, whose museums, libraries and 
municipal plants are at the disposal of our students for obser- 
vation, inspection and investigation. 

The first unit of the building plan is the equivalent in 
capacity of four buildings, each 50 by 60 feet, three stories 
high. Of these, two are dormitories, one, lecture halls, lab- 
oratories and offices, and the fourth, dining hall and refectory. 
A new building has been recently erected, to be used as a 
dormitory. The generosity of Mr. and Mrs. J. T. Lupton 
has made possible, also, the erection of another building, which 
contains the Library, President's Office, Assembly Hall, Lec- 
ture Rooms, Central Clock and Chimes, Founders' Room and 
Tower,, and Gymnasium.

In the Schools of Liberal Arts, Science, Business

and Education 

The requirement for entrance to the Academic Schools of 
Oglethorpe University is fifteen units from a school of good 
standing. The candidates must present three units in English 
and two in Mathematics. In the School of Liberal Arts, three 
units of Latin must, also, be offered; in the School of Science 
two years of language work are required. 

A unit represents a year's study in any subject in a secondary 
school, constituting approximately a quarter of a full year's 

The authorities of Oglethorpe University are fully ac- 
quainted with the educational situation in the South and in 
making their entrance requirements somewhat above rather 
than below the standard, they have not lost sight of the 
frequent insufficiencies of preparation of prospective students 
brought about by inadequate high school facilities. It is 
the purpose of the University to make its degrees repre- 
sent high attainment, but to furnish such facilities for stu- 
dents that this attainment will be fairly simple and easy. 
It is not our purpose by the adoption of specially high en- 
trance requirements to drive away any students from our 
institution. Adequate arrangements will be made for aiding 
any student who may be behind in his preparation in so far 
as such aid is consistent with the best ideals of college work.

The President of the University will gladly answer any 
inquiries as to further details of entrance requirements, upon 
request. An application blank will be found at the close of 
the catalogue. It is well for the prospective student to apply 
as early as possible. A blank for High School Certificate 
may be obtained by writing to the Registrar. 

Students who wish credit for college work done elsewhere 
must file with the Registrar a certificate from the institution 
in which the work was done. The institution must be one 
that is recognized by the Faculty of Oglethorpe University, 
and the work must be satisfactory to the professor of that 


Students over twenty years of age having twelve entrance 
units may be admitted for special study upon satisfying the 
Professors concerned, as to their ability to do the work of the 
classes which they wish to enter. Such students may become 
regular only by absolving all entrance requirements. 


1. A student whose term grade in any subject lies between 
70 and 60 per cent shall have two re-examinations and no 
more. These examinations for Fall and Winter Term con- 
ditions, will be set at the end of the succeeding term, and at 
the beginning of the next session. 

Examinations for removal of Spring Term conditions will 
be set at the beginning and end of the Fall Term of the next 

2. A student whose term grade in any subject lies between 
60 and 40 per cent shall have one re-examination and no more 
at the beginning of the next session. 

3. A student failing in both re-examinations in the first 
case or in the one re-examination in the second case will take 
the subject over in class. 

34 Oglethorpe University 

4. A student whose term grade in any subject lies below 
40 per cent will not be entitled to re-examination, but will 
be required to take the subject over in class. 

5. The summer term may be devoted to work prepara- 
tory to condition examinations, as deficient students will not 
be permitted to carry extra work during the nine months' 

6. Conditioned students absent from the regular condition 
examination must present an excuse satisfactory to the pro- 
fessor in charge of the subject or receive a zero for the ex- 
amination. When an excuse has been accepted a special ex- 
amination will be held for which a fee of two dollars shall 
be charged, which shall go to the library of that department. 

7. No student with more than three term conditions may 
be permitted to register as a member of the next higher class, 
but shall be considered a member of the same class as the 
year before, until the number of his unremoved conditions 
shall not exceed three. 

8. Conditions whether due to failure, to incomplete work, 
or to absence, must be made up within a year or the subject 
repeated in class. 

Oglethorpe University 35 


In the session of 1925-26 Oglethorpe University will offer 
courses in the undergraduate Classes of five schools leading 
to the customary Academic degrees. The degree of Bachelor 
of Arts (B. A.) in the Classics will be conferred upon those 
students satisfactorily completing a four years' course as out- 
lined below, based largely on the study of the "Humanities." 
The degree of Bachelor of Arts in Science will be conferred 
upon those students who satisfactorily complete a four years' 
course largely in scientific studies. The degree of Bachelor 
of Arts in Literature will be given to those students who 
complete a course including special work in languages, litera- 
ture and journalism. The degree of Bachelor of Arts in 
Commerce will be conferred upon those students who satis- 
factorily complete a full four years' course in studies relating 
particularly to business administration and industrial life. The 
degree of Bachelor of Arts in Education will be conferred 
upon those students who complete the studies in the School 
of Education. 

By a careful study of the courses outlined below, the stu- 
dent will be easily able to make a choice most suitable to his 
tastes and probable future life. 

In general, it may be suggested that those students pre- 
paring to enter such professions as the ministry or law, will 
choose the B. A. course in Classics; those looking forward 
to medicine, dentistry and other scientific work, the B. A. 
course in Science; those expecting to enter the literary and 
journalistic field, the B. A. course in Literature, and those 
who intend to spend their lives in the business world, the 
B. A. course in Commerce ; those who expect to teach, the 
B. A. course in Education. 

While each of these courses is so shaped as to influence 
the student towards a certain end, colored largely by the type 


Oglethorpe University 

of studies it includes, yet each course will be found to in- 
clude such subjects of general culture as are necessary to the 
education of a life as distinguished from a living.

The Honors Course at Oglethorpe University has been 
planned to fill a very definite need of present day education. 
With the elective system in operation everywhere and with the 
multiplication of schools and departments and courses in our 
American universities, the college student is frequently be- 
wildered as to what subjects he should choose and what courses 
pursue. Specialization also has gone so far in our institutions 
that many young men, after studying hard for four years in 
one department or another, find that they have omitted many 

objects which, among the best educated, are considered essen- 
tial to full culture. The President of the University has, 
therefore, prepared, and the Faculty and Executive Committee 
of the University have approved, the following course of study 
to meet this situation and supply the need arising from it. The 
courses offered are designed to lay a satisfactory foundation 
for the understanding and enjoyment of life. While they ade- 
quately prepare a student for any of the professions, in so far 
as college work can do so, and for business life as well, yet 
they are not exclusively utilitarian. They are intended to de- 
velop and sustain a great soul, to acquaint him with the fun- 
damental lines of progress of the human race and place him 
in position to interpret life to his fellowmen. 

The difficulty of doing this adequately without including a 
larger number of studies and, therefore, more hours of work 
*han the average student can successfully carry, is obvious. 
The course is designed only for the student whose prepara- 
tion and ability are both above the average. In order to insure 
this condition a passing grade and general average of 80 is 
necessary for its successful prosecution. Upon those students 
who complete the entire four years with a general average for 
the four years between 80 and 90, the degree of Bachelor of 
Arts, Cum Honore, is conferred. Upon those who complete 
the entire course with a general average between 90 and 95, 

Oglethorpe University 43 

the degree of Bachelor of Arts, Magno Cam Honore, is con- 
ferred. Upon any student completing the course with a gen- 
eral average of 95 or more, the degree of Bachelor of Arts, 
Summo Cum Honore, is conferred. 

It is well known to those best acquainted with the progress 
of education in the South that even the best of our Southern 
colleges and universities are approximately one year behind 
the best schools of the East and West. It is a regrettable fact 
that the Southern student who has finished the freshman work 
is just about ready to enter the freshman class in the best 
Eastern institutions. This is not the fault of our colleges but 
of insufficient preparation in our high schools, and while this 
condition of affairs is being improved it will be many years 
before it is completely remedied. This course, which an earn- 
est and intelligent student may take in five years and a bril- 
liant student in four years, will offset this difference and will 
make it possible for our Southern bovs to acquire the same 
amount of information and do the same amount of work at 
college that is done by their brothers graduating from the 
best institutions of the East and West. 

No substitutions or electives are allowed. The course must 
be taken as scheduled and in the order, by years, as stated. 
Students may, however, take some of the courses of the fresh- 
man year in the summer term following the freshman year, 
and similarly for the other years' work. The time allowed for 
the completion of the work is not less than four years and 
not more than five. Failure to successfully complete the 
course does not in any way disqualify the student from secur- 
ing full credits toward other degrees offered for all work suc- 
cessfully completed. He may then be graduated in any of 
the departments of the college as he may elect on the basis 
of such work as he has done. The courses themselves are as 
follows; beginning with the Freshman year.

Greek and Latin Etymology is designed to supply the student 
with a familiarity with scientific terms which he will need 
during the remainder of his college work, not only, but 
throughout his whole life. Lists of common scientific terms 
are studied and their derivation explained. The course of 
English acquaints the student with the form and structure of 
the language that he speaks, and drills him in the effective use 
of it. The course in Latin begins at the beginning. The stu- 
dent is taught to read Latin as rapidly as possible. Any stu- 
dent who ha3 already had in a standard high school as many 
as two years in Latin may substitute another subject instead of 
this course from the list which follows. The course in physics 
needs no explanation. The course in history begins with the 
first civilization in the city-states of the Tigro-Euphrates Val- 
ley and is a foundation for other historical studies that fol- 
low. The course in physiology is designed to give the student 
an adequate idea of the house in which he lives during the re- 
mainder of his days. The course in the Old Testament runs 
parallel partly with that of Freshmen history and lays the 
foundation for his moral and ethical thinking. In addition 
to the above, the student is required to take regular work in 
physical culture. 

In the Sophomore year, the courses are as follows: 

Oglethorpe University 45 

Hrs. New Testament H 

English 3 Bookkeeping 3 

Latin 3 Economics 3 

Modern Language „ 3 Physical Culture 

Biology 5 — 

History „ 3 25 

The study of English is continued and the same modern 
language that was elected for the freshman year must be con- 
tinued in the sophomore year. The course in Latin covers 
Caesar, first term, selections from Vergil, second term, some 
of the Odes of Horace in the third term. The course in biology 
makes it possible for the student to understand the life pro- 
cesses of the earth. The course in history covers the story of 
Greece and Rome. The course in the New Testament is a 
study of the life and teachings of Jesus Christ, without a 
knowledge of which no man can be considered an educated 
man. The course in economics is fundamental to any concep- 
tion of the business and political world. To this is added the 
work in bookkeeping and elementary accounting which will 
enable our student to interpret the statistical part of any en- 
terprise or business with which he may be connected. To 
these, also, is added the work in physical culture, 

The courses in the Junior year are as follows: 

English 3 Psychology 3 

Sociology .-. 3

Modern Language „.3 

Chemistry 5 

History 3 

Commercial Law 3 

Geology „ 3 26 

Ih the Junior year, the course in English broadens still fur- 
ther the student's knowledge of literature. The second mod- 
ern language is taken up. The work in chemistry interprets 

46 Oglethorpe University 

to him the constitution of the world in which he is living. 
The course in history covers the story of continental Europe 
in its broad outlines. The work in Commercial Law lays the 
foundations for intelligent management of his business affairs. 
A year in geology, including a short review of paleontology, 
reveals to him the marvelous story of the earth on which he 
is living. A year in Psychology acquaints him with the pro- 
cesses of his own soul, and the work in Sociology orientates 
him with respect to society. To these also is added the work 
in physical culture. 

In the Senior year, the courses are as follows: 
English 3 Anthropology 3 

History 3 Marketing 3 

Mod. Language 3 n . u . . ,

rohtical science 3 

Astronomy 3 — 

History of Art 3 25 

The work for the seniors in English, while it may vary its 
subject from time to time, is designed to widen our student's 
knowledge of the finest creative work in his language. The 
course in history covers the story of England and America. 
The second modern language begun in the junior year is con- 
tinued. A year is spent in the study of civics and politics to 
prepare our student for an intelligent exercise of his duty as a 
citizen. A year in Astronomy gives to him a better grasp of 
the universe and bestows upon him a sense of direction and 
orientation with respect to his environment. His work in 
anthropology covers the whole long story of the development 
of man. The work in the history of art includes architecture, 
sculpture, painting and music, and by acquainting him with 
the great works of the past enables him to enjoy and create 
art during his life time. The study of marketing introduces him 
to the whole vast field of distributing the products of the 

Oglethorpe University 47 

world's industry. To this is added the course in Cosmic His- 
tory, a sort of introduction to life by the President of the 
college; and the work in physical exercise. 

The following special courses may be chosen in lieu of such 
subjects in the freshman year as the student may have had in 
his preparatory work: 

Advanced work in Science 

Banking and allied subjects 

Business Problems 


Third year in any language 


History of Philosophy 

Principles and Philosophy of Education. 

Students in the Honors Course whose general average for 
five successive terms is as high as 93 will receive the Coat of 
Arms Sweater, these conditions being the same as those outlined 
for all students at the college. 

The University recognizes the fact that a vast accumulation 
of information even though it be organized by a well-trained 
intellect is utterly incomplete and even dangerous unless the 
whole is controlled by a fine moral purpose and. utilized in 
excellent personal conduct. It is a tradition of the University 
that a close association should be maintained between educa- 
tion and righteousness, a fixed alliance of morality with en- 
lightenment. We feel that to furnish the highest intellectual 
training to liars, thieves, adulterers, or crooks would be calam- 
itous to society whose leaders and examples they would be. 

All Honor Students at Oglethorpe, therefore, are required 
to observe the following laws: 

First, the law of personal honesty, forbidding all cheating 
on examinations, all thefts, minor and major. 

48 Oglethorpe University 

The law of personal truthfulness, which forbids all deceit 
of every kind whatsoever and particularly in a form of mis- 
representation or lying. 

The law of personal purity which commands perfect con- 

The law of loyalty which aligns the student with all that is 
best in the traditions of his Alma Mater and pledges his active 
support thereto, above any subsidiary college organization 
such as societies, fraternities, clubs, and others. This covers 
also abstention from all forms of hazing, and a pledge of his 
support to the faculty in preventing same. 

The law of self-control which, while partly covered in the 
law of personal purity, also includes all forms of drunken- 
ness, gambling, and similar lapses from the highest ideals of 
the moral law. 

The law of reverence: "Thou shalt not take the name of 
the Lord thy God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him 
guiltless that taketh His name in vain." 

No student who violates the above laws may continue as an 
honor student at Oglethorpe University. 

At the close of the student's course, after he has won either 
the cum honore, the magno cum honore, or the summo cum 
honor e, he will also be presented by the President with a 
medallion of solid gold on which is emblazoned the Coat of 
Arms of the University and her seal. 

The entrance to Lupton Hall. 
Above the doorway is engraved the following inscription 

"Till this I learned, that he who buildeth well 
Is greater than the structure that he rears. 
And wiser he who learns that Heaven hears 
Than all the wordy wisdom Idlers spell." 



It is the purpose of Oglethorpe University to develop a 
thoroughly excellent Graduate School, offering courses in all 
departments leading to the Doctor's degree in Science and 
Philosophy. In supplying this need, which has for a long 
while been acutely felt in the South, the management of the 
University will be content with only the very highest grade 
of work and facilities. 

Courses leading to the Master's and Doctor's degrees in 
certain departments will be found outlined elsewhere in this 
catalogue under the appropriate department heading. These 
degrees are based on that of Bachelor of Arts of Oglethorpe 
University or of some other approved institution. For the 
Master's degree the candidate must have an aggregate of twelve 
hours of graduate work, two full terms to be spent in resi- 
dence here, and the candidate must have work with at least 
two Professors. The degree of Doctor of Philosophy re- 
quires at least three years of graduate work. But neither 
degree is guaranteed at the end of a fixed period of time. 
A certain amount of work must be accomplished, and the 
quality of it must be such as to satisfy the Professors con- 
cerned and the whole Faculty. It is required that the candi- 
date for Ph. D. demonstrate by examination not later than 
the end of his first year, his ability to read German and 
French, and the student must have completed the under- 
graduate work in the subject to which he wishes to give his 
chief attention. A thesis must be submitted, showing original 
work. The Faculty hope to develop the Ph. D. courses when 
the equipment is adequate. 

In this connection, the prospective student will be inter- 
ested in learning that all Professors chosen as the heads of 
departments in Oglethorpe University must have obtained 
the highest academic degree offered in that department 
This fact is mentioned in order to indicate the earnest de- 

50 Oglethorpe University 

termination of the Board of Directors of the University that 
her Faculty shall include only men of the highest intellectual 
attainment as well as men of great teaching power and strong 
personal character. 

The President of the University will be pleased to answer 
any inquiries as to graduate courses to be offered 


The steady drift of the wisest opinion of the educational 
world looks toward the union of academic with professional 
education. The broadening effect of association of profes- 
sional students with other classmen on the university cam- 
pus, as well as the valuable opportunity for contact with 
academic work, renders this connection highly desirable. It 
is the purpose of the University to enter the field of pro- 
fessional education as quickly as funds are secured to enable 
us to do so adequately. Schools of Engineering, Architec- 
ture, Dentistry, Law and Medicine will be established as op- 
portunity offers, but no work will be undertaken that cannot 
be executed with the same quality of matter and form that is 
offered in the best institutions of our country. 


Students who are contemplating the professions of law, 
medicine or dentistry, and who do not desire to study for an 
academic degree, are allowed to take such work as will pre- 
pare them for entrance to professional schools. In addition 
to the required high school units for college entrance, pre- 
professional students must complete a two-year assignment, 
including thirty-eight year hours. The attention of the pros- 
pective student should, however, be clearly called to the fact 
that each year finds it more necessary for the professional 
man to have a thorough foundation for his professional studies, 
and the professional schools are becoming more strict in their 

Oglethorpe University 


requirements for entrance. Particularly is this the case in 
Medicine, where the best medical colleges require a diploma 
from a standard college for entrance. We would strongly 
advise our students to study the suggestions made on page 37 
and have their college diploma safely in hand before they 
begin their professional studies. The specific conditions for 
completing the several pre-professional courses are detailed 
as follows:

Cosmic History by President Jacobs 

In the endeavor to give to the graduates of the University 
a course that will co-ordinate the knowledge they have ob- 
tained of such subjects as Biology, Geology, Palaeontology, 
etc., with their work in Bible, Ethics and Philosophy, the 
President of the University will meet the Senior Class one hour 
per week, Wednesday, at 10:45, in a seminar covering a story 
of human life following the broad outlines of Astronomy, 
Geology, Palaeontology, Embryology, Anthropology and Ar- 
chaeology. The course closes with a study of the first ten 
chapters of Genesis in relation to modern discoveries. It is 
especially designed to give the graduates of Oglethorpe Uni- 
versity a conception of the harmony between religion and 
modern science and is required of all Seniors. It is believed 
that this work of co-ordination of modern science with religion 
can best be done in the senior class to the end that in harmon- 
izing the truths learned their faith may not be unsettled. 


The course in English Bible extends over two years; it u 
required for the B. A. degree in all four Departments, and 
must be pursued by every under-graduate student. 

The first year is devoted to the Old Testament, the second 
to the New Testament, together with the intervening period. 
Th' study will include the mastery of the history contained 
in the Bible, an analysis of each book, and such other matters 
as are required for the proper understanding of the work. 
It will be treated not from a sectarian point of view, nor as 
mere history or literature. The aim will be to impart such 
a knowledge of the subject as every intelligent man should 
possess, enabling him to read his Bible with pleasure and 

Oglethorpe University 53 

The effort vrill be made to give the students the proper 
defense of seeming difficulties in the Bible, both for their 
own benefit, and that they may be able to meet the objec- 
tions of unbelievers. 

Text-Books — Bible 1. English Bible, Moorehead's Outline 
Studies in the Books of the Old Testament. 

Bible 2. Vollmer's Life of Christ, Kerr's Introduction to 
New Testament Study. 

This course will be followed in the Junior and Senior year 
by Psychology, Ethics, History of Philosophy, and Evidences 
of Christianity.

Two recitations and four hours of laboratory work weekly 
throughout the year. 

54 Oglethorpe University 

An introductory course in the principles of animal and plant 
biology presenting the fundamental facts of vital structure and 
function. Some conception of the evolution of plants and ani- 
mals is given by the laboratory study of a series of types begin- 
ning with the unicellular. This is supplemented by lectures 
that give a synchronous running account of the underlying prin- 
ciples and biological theories. 

I. (b) This course is designed for pre-medical students only. 
Three recitations and a minimum of six hours of laboratory 
work weekly throughout the year. 

It is planned to give training in methods of exact observa- 
tion and deduction and to give the fundamentals in this branch 
of science so necessary to the medical student. Selected animal 
types are studied, especial attention being given the higher 
forms and in so far as is possible types which have a direct 
bearing upon the health of man, as viewed from the medical 

II. Microscopical Technique.

This course is designed for pre-medical students only. Three 
recitations and a minimum of six hours of laboratory work 
weekly throughout the year. 

A course in the phylogeny of man and mammals. The lab- 
oratory work consists largely of the dissection of the dogfish 
and cat. Each organ system is studied with reference to its de- 
velopment, anatomy, and physiology. Instruction is based in 

Oglethorpe University 55 

so far as possible on observations made in laboratory experi- 
ments, and on demonstrations. The facts observed are dis- 
cussed in lectures and quizzes. In the lectures free use is made 
of charts, models, and microscopical sections. Weekly oral 
quizzes are supplemented by written tests given upon the com- 
pletion of some general division of the subject. This course 
is recommended as a preparation for human anatomy, to those 
who intend to enter on Medicine. Although this course is op- 
tional according to the requirements of the medical school the 
student proposes to attend, it should be distinctly understood 
that the University does not look with favor upon those who 
comply merely with a minimum of the requirements for admis- 
sion to such schools. 

FV. Physiology and Hygiene. 

Required of all freshmen. One lecture weekly throughout 
the year. 

This course is designed to give the student such knowledge 
of his own body as to enable him to care for it properly and 
develop habits that will bring out his best possibilities.

Professor Routh Mr. Camp 

The work in English in the first two years is designed to 
give students a mastery of their own tongue for speaking and 
writing, and to familiarize them with the best English litera- 
ture. The elective courses, given mainly for Juniors and 
Seniors, provide intensive study in special fields. The sum- 
mer courses, though not identical with the winter courses, are 
planned along similar lines, and give corresponding credits. 
This will enable a student to complete a portion of his re- 
quirements for a degree in the summer. 

For graduate students work is offered leading to the degree 
of M. A. 

English 1. Composition. Practice in speaking and writ- 
ing, with collateral study of masterpieces of modern prose.

Professor Nicolassen. 

Three years of Greek will be offered in the undergraduate 
classes, together with a preparatory class for those who are 
unprepared for Greek I. 

Preparatory Greek. This class is designed not merely 
for those who have no knowledge of the language, but also 
for those whose preparation is inadequate. The most import- 
ant subjects, both in inflection and syntax, are presented early 
in the course, and then, by a system of weekly reviews, are kept 
constantly fresh. 

Text-Books: Benner and Smyth's Beginners Greek Book, 
Xenophon's Anabasis (Goodwin and White). Three times a 
week throughout the year. Elective. 

Greek 1. The preparation for entrance into this class is 
not so much a matter of time as of thoroughness. The stu- 
dent is expected to know the ordinary Attic inflections and 
syntax, to have read about one book of the Anabasis, and to 
have had considerable practice in translating English into 
Greek. The use of accents is required. 

A part of the work of this class consists of the minute 
study of the verbs, their principal parts, synopsis of tenses, 
and the inflection of certain portions. 

Written translations of English into Greek are required once 
a week. On the other days a short oral exercise of this kind 
forms a part of the lesson; so that in each recitation some 
practice is had in translating English into Greek. 

Text-Books: Xenophon's Anabasis (Goodwin and White), 
Memorabilia, Adams's Lysias, Goodwin's Greek Grammar, 
Pearson's Greek Prose Composition, Myers' Eastern Nations 
and Greece, Liddell and Scott's Greek Lexicon, (unabridged) .

Herodotus (Smith and Laird), Homer's Iliad (Seymour), 
Demosthenes and Herodotus (Ancient Classics for English 
Readers), Church's Stories from Homer, Fowler's Greek Liter- 
ature. Three times a week throughout the year. Elective. 

Greek 3. The time of this class will be divided between 
prose and poetry. After the study of Thucydides and Plato, 
the reading of Sophocles will be taken up. The life of the 
ancient Greeks will also be considered. 

Text-Books: Thucydides (Morris), Plato (Forman), Soph- 
ocles' Oedipus Tyrannus (Earle), Thucydides and Plato (An- 
cient Classics for English Readers), Church's Stories from the 
Greek Tragedians, Gulick's Life of the Ancient Greeks. Three 
times a week throughout the year. Elective. 


The first term will be devoted to the study of Mythology, 
that readers of English Literature may be able to understand 
allusions to classical stories. 

Text-Book : Gayleys Classical Myths. 

The second part of this course is designed to show the origin 
of English words derived from Greek and Latin, especially 
scientific terms. Students looking forward to Medicine will 
find this course particularly helpful. No knowledge of either

Undergraduate Course Leading to the Degree of Bach- 
elor of Arts (B. A.) in Commerce 

Graduate Courses Leading to Advanced Degrees 

Prof. A. S. Libby. Ass't Prof. Maxwell. 

Prof. C. S. Libby. 

The School of Business Administration, Commerce and 
Finance is an undergraduate-graduate school, one of the pro- 
fessional divisions of the University. Instruction is therefore 
directed toward professional education rather than narrow 
technical drill. Entrance requirements for the undergraduate 
work are the same as for the School of Liberal Arts, except 
that Ancient Language is not required. Modern Language, 
especially Spanish or French, is strongly advised. Shorthand 
and typewriting are neither required nor later counted toward 
a degree, but are strongly recommended. 

The graduate work is based upon the Bachelor's Degree 
from an accredited institution. 

Economics — Its laws and principles with special reference 
to American conditions. The course presents a general sur- 
vey and is designed to serve as an introduction to later and 
more intensive study of the problems of industrial society. 

Economic and Commercial Geography — A study of re- 
sources and industries as influenced by geographic conditions. 
The geography of the more important commercial products of 
the farm, range, forest, mine, factory, and sea; continental and 
oceanic trade routes; great commercial nations. 

American Government and Politics — Analysis of the 
structure and workings of the government in the United States, 
local, state, and national; the organization and activities of 

70 Oglethorpe University 

state and federal administration, with the fundamental legal 
and political principles governing it. This course alternates 
with Comparative Government. 

Accounting Principles — An elementary course based on 
the use made of financial statements in business organization 
and control. The student is familiarized, through practice 
and discussion, with the entire accounting process, beginning 
with the voucher and ending with the report. The last part 
of the course is devoted to the consideration of the typical 
financial statements and their analysis from the standpoint of 
the various interests involved. The method of instruction is a 
combination of lectures and discussions, supplemented by lab- 
oratory practice. 

Business Communication — A study of the communicating 
function in business and of the technique which is common 
to all forms of business communication; discussed in its psy- 
chological, rhetorical, graphic, and typographical aspects. 
The practice work is organized around Material, Attention, 
Interest, Understanding, Belief, Action and Good Will. It 
includes the assembling of the data from letters, editorials, 
and business articles. 

This course has a twofold purpose: (1) to give the infor- 
mation about the communicating activities of business and the 
skill in the presentation of business material which all busi- 
ness workers need, and (2) to provide the foundation neces- 
sary for an advanced study of correspondence and advertising 

Business Psychology — Business problems from the psy- 
chological point of view. (1) Psychological facts and prin- 
ciples applicable to the conduct of business operations: (2) 
possibilities and limitations of psychological method and ap- 
proach to business problems. Among the topics discussed are 
ihe hiring and instructing of employees, vocational adjust- 
ment, group efficiency, advertising and selling. 

Oglethorpe University 7L 

Financial Organization of Society — A study of the nature 
and work of the various types of financial institutions in the 
modern business world, the forces that have led to their de- 
velopment, and their relation to the organization of industrial 
society. The principal forms of financial institutions covered 
are: coinage and monetary systems; credit; commercial banks; 
savings banks; bondhouses; trust companies; stock exchanges; 
the various forms of co-operative associations; also a brief 
study of the functions of the corporation and the insurance 
company as financial institutions. Each of these institutions 
plays its own part in the industrial system, and together, in 
their many interrelations, they make up the financial structure 
of society. 

Labor Conditions and Problems — A general survey — ana- 
lytical, causal and historical, of the main forces and factors 
which give rise to modern labor conditions and problems and 
which, therefore, must be taken into consideration in the at- 
tempted solution of specific labor problems, together with a 
brief discussion of social programs, organized labor, and 
labor legislation. This course is designed to serve as the foun- 
dation for the special courses in this field as well as to meet 
the needs of those who wish only a general study of labor 
problems. Its main divisions are the genesis, evolution, and 
character of present-day labor problems; the material progress 
and present condition of the wage-earning class, wages, hours 
of work, unemployment, property holdings, and distribution 
of income, among other things, being considered; points of 
view and social programs; the philosophy, policies, and 
methods of organized labor, arbitration and social insurance.

Marketing 1 — Raw Materials — A survey of the method 
and problems connected with the marketing of raw materials. 
A study is made of farm products, mineral products, forest 
products, and sea products, and the physical and geographical 
environment of the productive regions to discover their com- 
mercial problems. The course falls into three general divis- 
ions: (1) the commodity, (2) the markets, (3) the trade 
organization. Special study is made of the problems of the 
middlemen, transportation, warehousing, organized exchanges 
and produce markets, market news, financing the market and 
market price. These problems are analyzed in classroom dis- 
cussion as they appear in the marketing of four or five great 
staple commodities. Theory and practice are balanced by 
visits to warehouses, cold storages, produce markets, and other 
specialized markets. 

Each student is required to select a commodity and trace it 
through its entire marketing process. The information for 
these papers is secured through government bulletins, market 
reports, technical and scientific literature, and by interviews 
and observation. Special emphasis is placed upon first-hand 

Marketing 2 — Manufactured Goods — In the problems and 
methods of marketing manufactured products, the same gen- 
eral divisions are made: (1) the commodity, (2) the market, 
(3) the trade organization. The classroom discussion will 
consider the general problems confronting a merchant with 
goods to sell; organization of a business; duties and respon- 
sibilities of the sales manager, the advertising manager, and 
the advertising agency; application of scientific principles to 



Oglethorpe University 73 

commercial analysis; location; analysis of a commodity; pur- 
chasing problem, stock plans; analysis of market; analysis of

organization of the sales force; selection of advertising me- 
diums; financing a sales and advertising organization; co- 
ordinating the selling forces. The aim is to define and out- 
line the general principles of commercial analysis, which in- 
cludes the work of both salesmen and advertising men. The 
literature that is available on these problems is assigned for 

As in Course 1 above, the student is required to make first- 
hand investigation and written reports of the problems, in local 

Marketing 3 — Foreign Trade — The marketing problems 
arising are: theories of foreign trade; character and volume 
of trade available for foreign commerce; contact with the for- 
eign market, commission house, forwarding agent, manufac- 
turers' agent, indent merchant, traveling salesmen, export de- 
partments; foreign correspondence; advertising in the foreign 
market; combining for foreign trade; prices in foreign trade; 
foreign exchange, credit, price quotations; transportation; 
marine insurance; tariffs; merchant marine; individual foreign 
markets. The point of view is that of an inland city like 
Atlanta. The problems are conditioned by this fact. 

Marketing 4 — Problems of Marketing and Merchan- 
dising — A wide range of problems of manufacture and dis- 

As in courses 1 and 2, each student will select a single 
commodity for detail study. The investigation will be de- 
veloped into a term paper dealing with the selected product 
in the various foreign markets, with the effects of the Euro- 
pean war, and with the future possibilities. An attempt will 

74 Oglethorpe University 

be made to clear away the obscurities surrounding the sub- 
ject of foreign trade by following a commodity through to its 
destination, with samples of all the necessary documents. 

Economic Development of the United States — The rise 
and evolution of the institutions, the structure and the organi- 
zation of industrial society which have been developed in the

principles and their application in different fields. Its topics 
will include the kinds of useful work; the general presump- 
tion in favor of private enterprise; its shortcomings as an 
organizing force, and the weakening of individual's positions 
in a free-exchange economy resulting from (1) massing of 
technical capital, (2) growth of specialized knowledge before 
which common intelligence is at a disadvantage, (3) conflicts 
of interests which the law of property and contract cannot 
fully harmonize, and (4) other causes. Chief emphasis will 
be laid on the problems common to trusts, railroads, and public 
utilities, arising from fixed capital, untraced expenses, increas- 
ing returns, and the resulting tendencies to monopoly.

of South American commerce, (3) factors affecting commerce 
with South America, (4) commercial prospects in South 

Industrial Administration I — Designed primarily for 
those students expecting to enter the manufacturing field. It 
presupposes the courses Industrial Society, Business Admin- 

Oglethorpe University 77 

istration, Statistic, Accounting, and some ability to undertake 
independent investigation. The course deals with the nature 
and characteristics of the complex problems of the industrial 
executive, and systematic methods of such problems, aiming 
thus to provide the student with a sense of relative values and 
some method for later intensive research on his own initiative. 
The work is made practical by independent investigation in 
factories of various types. 

Industrial Administration II — A continuation of Indus- 
trial Administration I with similar objectives. The more im- 
portant "philosophies of administration" which help to solve 
the manufacturer's problems; a rapid survey of the history of 
industrial engineering; theories, principles, methods of ap- 
proach, devices, and their application to various types of in- 
dustry. This work is made practical through personal inter- 
views with men who have developed the more important phil- 
osophies of administration. 

Commercial Law (A three-term course) — Ordinarily in non- 
commercial affairs the risks incident to ignorance of the law 
are not particularly formidable. A working knowledge of the 
rules of the Commercial Law is of practical value to every 
citizen, but to the successful business man of today it is indis-

handling, routing, tool-room maintenance, cost keeping, worked 
material and tool standardization and classification, in making 
route charts, and in devising production systems. 

Industrial Combinations — The conditions in modern in- 
dustrial society which have led to the growth of combina- 
tions, an analysis of the motives for their formation, the 
sources of their power and the elements of their weakness, 
the character and extent of any possible social advantages 
to be derived from them as well as the disadvantages and 
evils which have followed their growth, the attempts at state 
and federal regulation in the past, and the question of the 
desirable policy and feasible methods of control for the fu- 
ture. The subject is treated as a single problem of modern 
industrial society, with emphasis on methods of investiga- 
tion, analysis, and reasoning essential for the study of simi- 
lar problems.

Perhaps the most remarkable single development in the 
modern educational world is the possession by our colleges 
and universities of complete control of the greatest of all 
sports. American college football is the most interesting, 
most exciting, most manly, most instructive and most prof- 
itable game ever played by men. It, more than any other, 
furnishes to its devotees something of the moral equivalent 
of war, and such a hold has it taken on the public that they 
pour out their tens of thousands of dollars to witness inter- 
collegiate games in vast stadia and bowls erected largely for 
the purpose at a cost reaching into the millions. It is a 
momentous thing for the academic world to have control of 
the American equivalent of the Olympic games and the con- 
tests of the Arena, and as we watch the never ceasing en- 
largment of interest, finance, equipment and importance of 
this part of college work it must be perfectly apparent that 
the very life of a college depends and will more and more 
depend upon its method of handling this fact which is at 
once a challenge and an opportunity. 

And, hand in hand with football, go baseball, basket-ball, 
boating, track, and indeed the whole physical well-being of 
the vast. American student-body. 

Passing by as somnolent those colleges that sidestep the 
fact by denying their students the privilege of intercollegiate 
sports and those that permissively decree a Students' Athletic 
Association which assumes control of coach, games, and often 
of "Faculty Directors of Athletics," we come to those insti- 
tutions that face the situation with wide open eyes. 

The attitude of Oglethorpe University to all athletics is 
based upon the recognition of the physical training of the 
human body as a college study. 

84. Oglethorpe University 

It is presumed that a matter of such overwhelming im- 
portance to college life as athletics and of such transcendent 
interest to the public that it commands their time and purses 
at will, is a matter worth studying seriously and deserving 
to be ranked with Greek or Poultry Keeping. 

Therefore Oglethorpe University has founded her School of 
Physical culture. 

Its purpose is two-fold: to train, protect and develop the 
bodies of all the students of the University and to offer a 
special school where those who deserve it may receive special 
training, equipping them for positions as Physical Directors 
in Y. M. C. A.'s, in the Army, and in other schools, colleges 
and universities. 

As a school for the special preparation of students for 
positions as physical directors and coaches in Y. M. C. A.'s, 
the Army and other schools and universities, a regular cur- 
riculum has been arranged offering instruction in the follow- 
ing subjects, the completion of which will lead to an appro- 
priate certificate or degree: 

1. Physiology — A first-year course in the study of the 
human body, one hour per week — Fall, Winter, Spring and 
Summer Terms. Required of all Freshmen. Prerequisite for

Mr. Anderson 

3. Track — Study and practice of all track exercise, run- 

Oglethorpe University 85 

ning, jumping, vaulting, discus and javelin throwing, hurd- 
ling and relay race. Three hours per week. Elective.

10. Psychology of Play — Mental preparation for con- 
tests. Advertising and promotion of games. Sport writers 
and writing. Athletic accounting, contracts, methods of pro- 
motion and use of football contests. One term only.

11. Arts and Science Group — Comprising such elective* 
from courses offered in the Schools of Arts and Sciences, 

86 Oglethorpe University 

Literature, and Commerce as may be elected to complete re- 
quirements of S. I. A. A., for eligibility in intercollegiate 

An appropriate letter will be given all students making the 
University team in any of the above classes, 3-10, inclusive. 

Any student successfully completing all courses, 1-13 inclu- 
sive, will be accorded a certificate or diploma in proportion 
to the quantity and quality of his work. 

Every human being should be taught to play with his fel- 
low-beings. Every student should have daily exercise. These 
two simple but fundamental axioms are the basis for all work 
in this department. 

The munificent gift of fifty thousand dollars by Mr. and 
Mrs. Harry P. Hermance to Oglethorpe University for an 
athletic field has made possible the immediate inauguration 
of this plan, which is founded upon the study from a college 
standpoint of psychology, hygiene, sanitation, first aid work, 
etc. It further emphasizes the necessity of careful medical 
supervision of all athletics and the adaption to each individ- 
ual student of special forms of exercise. 

One of its most important features is the requiring of every 
student to take some form of physical exercise daily under 
proper medical or tutorial guidance. In this way those who 
need it most would be most advantaged, and the chief failure 
of the athletic program of our average American college 
would be obviated, for it is a notorious fact that most of our 
institutions develop a small number of trained athletes in 
football, baseball, basket-ball, etc., while the great mass of 
students do little more than sit on the bleachers and yell. 

And the building of the new athletic field given by Mr. 
and Mrs. Hermance makes possible the inauguration at Ogle- 
thorpe of a complete system of physical culture for all stu- 
dents. It will include not only the great athletic features 

Oglethorpe University 87 

such as football, baseball, basket-ball, etc., but also many 
interesting track exercises, discus and javelin throwing, jump- 
ing, vaulting and, in fact, all of the various numbers to be 
found at our intercollegiate track meets. It is the purpose 
of Oglethorpe University as quickly as circumstances may 
permit, to enter a team in every number on the program of 
such meets, and, in addition, to develop a strong boating 
crew on Silver Lake. 

The University has been especially fortunate in enjoying 
the services of Mr. Frank B. Anderson, one of the best known 
coaches in the South, who has had charge of Athletics at 
Oglethorpe University and who has been advanced to the 
directorship of the department of physical culture. Mr. An- 
derson has merited and won not only a great reputation as 
a coach, but as a clean, fine friend of young men, and there 
is no man in the whole of America more loved by his boys. 

We are especially fortunate also in being able to announce 
that Mr. Harry Robertson, famous all-American football star, 
will coach our football team and teach Course No. 4. The 
University, of course, is proud of his record and happy in 
the knowledge that our boys will have as their coach a man 
who is an expert in that department with hardly an equal in 
this country, and those of us who have charge of the moral and 
mental life of the University, feel especially happy in having 
at the head of this fascinating department of our work, a 
splendid outstanding man whose personal influence with the 
students will mean so much in the building of character and 
the enforcing of every moral and religious precept. It is not 
going too far to say that the teams at Oglethorpe will be as 
well coached next year and thereafter as any teams on the 
American continent, for there are no two finer men at the 
head of athletics whether it be as coaches or as men, than the 
two who head this department at Oglethorpe. 

Other instructors will be added as this work may require. 

88 Oglethorpe University 


Having in mind the frequent inadequacy of preparation for 
college on the part of many students, the University operates 
during the summer a summer school wherein are offered stand- 
ard sub-freshmen courses such as Mathematics, English, Latin, 
Greek, etc. These courses are open to students of accredited 
high schools, not only, but also to other students who, after 
they have finished them satisfactorily, may stand examination 
on the subjects taken and other subjects necessary for college 
entrance and may thus enter college in the following fall. 
In addition to the above, should there be a sufficient number 
of applicants, some regular college courses may be specially 
arranged for upon application to the President. 

Among other courses thus offered for the coming year are 
those in bookkeeping and accounting in the School of Com- 
merce under Professor Ira V. Maxwell. 

The boarding department of the University will not be open 
during the summer, but board and lodging can be easily ob- 
tained in the city of Atlanta or in the neighborhood of the 
University at moderate prices. 

Board and Room Rent 

The dormitory facilities of Oglethorpe University are the 
safest and most comfortable of cognate institutions in the 
South. All the buildings of the University will be like the 
first two that are now finished, which are believed to be ab- 
solutely fireproof, being constructed of steel, concrete and 
granite with partitions of brick and hollow tile. 

The Boarding Department of the Institution is conducted 
to please the student. Thoroughly first-class service will be 
given. The skimmed milk diet which produces skimmed milk 
thinking will be studiously avoided. Price of board is in- 

Oglethorpe University 89 

eluded in the room rent. 

The prices named below are based upon three grades of 
rooms. The first of these comprises the temporary dormi- 
tory; the second the entire third floor of the present main 
building, which is fifty (50) feet wide and one hundred and 
eighty (180) feet long; it is divided into individual rooms, 
with general toilet and bath room on the same floor. Each 
contains a lavatory furnishing hot and cold water. The third 
grade is on the second floor of the main building and is com- 
posed of suites of rooms, each suite containing a bedroom, 
bath and study. The price charged includes first-class board, 
steam heat, electric lights, water and janitor's service, and all 
rooms are furnished adequately and substantially. Every room 
in the dormitory contains ample closet space. The rooms are 
large, airy, safe and comfortable and are roomy enough for the 
use of from one to four young men. 

The furniture is of oak and is the same for all rooms, in- 
cluding chiffonier, study-table, single bed, spring and mattress 
for each student. 

Room linen and bed clothing will be furnished by the stu- 
dent. Applications for rooms should be filed at once. For 
reservation of room inclose $5.00 reservation fee, to be credited 
on first payment. 

The expenses at Oglethorpe University are made as low as 
the quality of instruction, of rooming accommodations and of 
table fare will permit. No fees such as matriculation, library, 
hospital, contingent, athletic, etc., are charged. To Day Stu- 
dents the only charge made is that of tuition which is $70.00 
per term, as covered by the college calendar. 

For students boarding in the dormitories of the University 
the following charges are made: 
New Government Building $155.00 per term 

90 Oglethorpe University 

Administration Building, second floor (see diagram on page 
98), $187.50. 

Third floor (see diagram on page 99), $167.50. 

All University charges are payable quarterly in advance ex- 
cept by special arrangement. For absences no rebate is made 
on board for less than one week, on room rent for less than 
one month, and on tuition for less than one term. No rebate 
is made on absences caused by temporary suspension by action 
of the faculty. It will be observed that the total cost for the 
entire year, including tuition, table board and room rent, heat, 
light and janitor service ranges from $155.00 per term up- 
ward — according to the rooming accommodations. The stu- 
dent should bring his own bedding and personal linen. Books 
may be purchased from the Student Co-op or in the city of 
Atlanta and will cost approximately $10.00 per term. 

Upon assuming possession of his room each student is given 
a statement showing the general condition of the room and of 
the articles of furniture contained therein. He is required at 
the end of each term — or at the end of the college year — upon 
the request of the Superintendent, to restore the property to 
the condition in which he received it by paying the actual cost 
of replacements and repairs as made or estimated as necessary 
to be made by the college officials. When the room is occu- 
pied by more than one student the cost of repairs is divided in 
proportion to responsibility. 


Approximately fifteen per cent of the Oglethorpe student 
body are "working their way through college" in whole or in 

It is the intention of the authorities of the University to 
see that a way is provided as far as possible for the assist- 
ance of any student who may be in pecuniary need and yet 

Oglethorpe University 91 

desirous of prosecuting his studies at Oglethorpe. A special 
Faculty Committee will co-operate with students to that end. 

As a general rule it is best for the student that he should 
be able to devote all of his time to his academic duties, but 
where circumstances require it, many students may undertake 
various tasks, payment for which materially aids them in 
meeting their expenses. 

For further information address the President, Oglethorpe 
University, Georgia. 


By the generosity of a good friend who does not wish his 
name mentioned, the University is able to lend a limited sum 
to deserving students who would otherwise be unable to prose- 
cute their studies at Oglethorpe. Further details upon appli- 


The munificent generosity of Mr. and Mrs. Harry P. Her- 
mance in giving to Oglethorpe the sum of $50,000.00 for an 
Athletic Stadium, the finest in the South, makes feasible the 
development of all forms of field sports, including not only 
the great games of football and baseball, but also vaulting, 
jumping, discus and javelin throwing, track work, etc. Physi- 
cal culture for all students will be required. 

A sanely encouraging attitude is taken by the University 
toward inter-collegiate athletics, and Oglethorpe University is 
acquitting herself well in that sphere of her educational life. 


In addition to those sports common to all well equipped 
colleges in the South, Oglethorpe University is the fortunate 
possessor of a beautiful lake covering eighty acres located 

92 Oglethorpe University 

conveniently to the University campus, with a part of its 
shore set aside for a university boat house. This will enable 
the institution to add a crew to its list of athletic sports. 
The lake is admirably suited for boating, rowing, swimming 
and fishing. 

The policy of Oglethorpe University includes the care of 
the physical life of our students as a matter of large import- 
ance. (Physical and hygienic welfare and instruction will be 
a part of the curriculum of the institution.) Regular instruc- 
tion, looking to symmetrical development of the entire man 
will be given in the Athletic Department of the University, 
under competent medical guidance. Special attention is at 
present given to outdoor athletics. Adequate provision is 
being made for football and baseball grounds, tennis courts, 
etc. Work has been begun on the Hermance Stadium. 


One of the interesting features of university life at Ogle- 
thorpe is the University Store, managed for the benefit of 
the students themselves, under the superintendence of the 

In the store are kept all the necessary college accessories. 
Any ordinary purchase may thus be made most conveniently, 
as full lines of goods answering the various college require- 
ments are constantly kept on hand. 


The ability of a college or university to develop worthy 
character in its students depends largely upon that indefin- 
able quality called "college atmosphere." As a mother, she 
breathes her own soul into her boys. They inherit all she 
has been through, all of labor and strength and faith and 
prayer. If her judgments have been bought out with money 
they inherit that; if with blood they inherit that. Every storm 

Oglethorpe University 93 

through which she has passed strengthens them for their own 
conflicts in the days that are to come. 

Oglethorpe is a daughter of battle and faith and prayer. 
God alone built her, touching the hearts of multitudes of 
His children at the voice of her call. Alone of all the promi- 
nent ante-bellum universities she died for her ideals and 
alone of all the universities of America, God has raised her 
from the dead. 

By her every battle, her every faith, her every triumph, she 
has learned what things are really worth while and what hand 
really to lean upon. She will tell her children of Hnu. 


Daily chapel exercises, which the students are required to 
attend, are conducted by each of the members of the faculty 
in turn. The student life at Oglethorpe is also blessed by 
the activities of the Y. M. C. A., and frequent sermons and 
addresses by visiting pastors and evangelists. A Sunday School 
Class has been started by the students themselves, which grew 
to a membership of over eighty. 


By the generosity of many friends, so great as to be almost 
unparalleled, the University received during the first year of 
its life approximately ten thousand volumes for the library. 
These consist of standard works in Literature, History and 
Science, with many valuable reference works in special de- 
partments. The Private Libraries of Dr. Sellers in Science, 
and of Dr. Nicolassen in the Classics, are both available for 
the use of the students in these departments. The policy of 
the institution is to let no year go without the enlargement of 
the library. A competent librarian is in charge and the rooms 
will be open during the year of 1924-25 approximately ten 
hours per day. The Public Library of Atlanta is also available 
for the use of our students. 




By the splendid generosity of Dr. Cheston King the Uni- 
versity has been given a Library of English incomparably the 
finest south of Washington. The volumes for this library, in- 
cluding some seventeen thousand books and pamphlets, have 
been received, and are now available for graduate work. 


Among the unique honors offered at the University is the 
presentation of a sweater with the Coat-of-Arms blazoned 
thereon, which will be awarded in the future under the terms 
of the following resolution unanimously adopted by the Fac 
ulty of the University, upon recommendation of the President: 

"Resolved, that on and after September 1st, 1922, the 
Coat-of-Arms of Oglethorpe University shall be given to those 
students carrying a minimum of fifteen hours weekly, of ex- 
cellent personal character and conduct, whose general average 
of all the courses taken during five preceding consecutive 
terms shall have been not less than 93, or who, in lieu of said 
general average, shall have so distinguished themselves in 
some intellectual, creative, or constructive accomplishment as 
to entitle them thereto in the judgment of the Faculty."

Quality is the word that expresses the Oglethorpe idea — 
quality in location, in climate, in campus, in architecture, in 
student character, in college life, in athletics and sports, in 
faculty, in curriculum, and in religion and morals. Every 
one of these we offer at Oglethorpe. 

Located in the commercial and educational capital of the 
South, with an unrivaled climate, on the most elegant street 
of that city, on a most beautiful campus of over one hundred 
and thirty acres of woodland and meadow, including an eighty- 
two acres lake which belongs to our students for swimming, 
boating and fishing, the physical advantages offered by Ogle- 
thorpe University are unsurpassed anywhere in the section. 

One by one a splendid body of buildings is being erected 
on its campus. Every one of them will be of granite trimmed 
with limestone and covered with variegated slates. All of 
them will be as fire-proof as human skill can make them 
and as commodious and comfortable as our architects can plan 
them. They will be like the first buildings already erected, 
which are believed to be the safest, most beautiful and most 
efficient college or university buildings in the Southeast. 

96 Oglethorpe UNivEnsiTY 


The attractions of the city of Atlanta as an educational 
center are fast making it one of the great intellectual dyna- 
mos of the nation. Gifted with a soft, Southern mountain 
climate, convenient of access to the entire nation over its 
many lines of railway, known everywhere as the center of 
Southern activities, she draws to herself as to a magnet the 
great minds of the nation and the world. Hither come 
lecturers, musicians, statesmen, evangelists, editors, teachers 
and officials of the United States. An intellectual atmosphere 
created by such conditions and the frequent opportunity of 
contact with these leaders in all branches of human activity, 
offered frequently to our students, give Oglethorpe University 
an advantage of position and of opportunity which she will 
cultivate to the uttermost. Facilities for hearing and meeting 
the great musicians and authors and public speakers and the 
leaders in all spheres of intellectual activity will be offered 
our students. The tremendous influence of such contact upon 
the young lives committed to us will be felt in increased 
ambition and redoubled determination to perform, themselves, 
their duty to their race and their God. 


It is not going too far to say that the aesthetic tastes and 
home habits of many young men are ruined at college by 
the cheap and unattractive furnishings of their rooms and 
the ugly forbidding architecture of the building, whose walls 
often deface their campus. The architecture of an institu- 
tion of learning should be a constant source of delight and 
inspiration to its students, teaching quietly but surely the 
highest ideals of life. Indeed all those qualities of soul we 
know as honesty, solidity, dignity, durability, reverence and 
beauty may be expressed in the face of a building as surely 
as in that of a man, and are so expressed on the Oglethorpe 

Entrance to Administration Building. 

Over this beautiful doorway is engraved the motto of the 


"A Search is the Thing He Hath Taught You, 
For Height a>iii for Depth and for Wideness." 

Oglethorpe University 97 

Not less important are the personal surroundings of the 
student's room. Cheap, ugly and ill-equipped apartments 
have exactly the same influence on the soul of a boy that 
cheap, ugly and ill-equipped human companions have. That 
is why the rooms at Oglethorpe are handsomely furnished. 
The sons of the poor are entitled to the information and in- 
spiration such surroundings offer, and the sons of the rich 
will deteriorate without them. 

In brief the college education that does not teach a love 
of beauty and tidiness and what is popularly called "decency," 
is essentially and dangerously defective. 

This is the special work of the silent faculty at Oglethorpe.

Young men who desire to enjoy the daily personal contact 
and instruction of the heads of departments will note with 
interest that our first few years will offer exceptional op- 
portunities of that nature. It is well known that in all our 
large institutions only the upper classmen come in any close 
contact with the full Professors, who as heads of depart- 
ments occupy their time in other matters than educating 

We believe in giving our Freshmen the best we have, and 
they will be taught by men who have taught in or had of- 
fered them, chairs in the greatest universities of America. 
This will be a permanent policy at Oglethorpe. 


All students of all classes are required to take two hours 
a week of Physical Training. This is intended to keep the 
body in good condition, and is especially designed for the 
benefit of those students who do not take part in football, 
baseball, etc., but who need some stimulus to pay attention to 
their physical well being. 


The University maintains at all times an excellent infirm- 
ary, with a nurse in attendance, for the prompt treatment of 
accidents and of such cases of sickness as may occur. By 
this means prolonged and serious illness can often be pre- 
vented. During the recent influenza epidemic vigorous meas- 
ures were taken at once, with the result that, while there were 
a relatively small number of cases there were no fatalities. 
There is a University physician who can be secured on short 
notice when his services are needed. 

Oglethorpe University 101 

The University makes no charge to the students for infirm- 
ary service which includes also the attendance of the college 
physician in the infirmary. In case of special illness requir- 
ing operations or the services of specialists, while the Univer- 
sity frequently is able to secure reduced charges for our stu- 
dents, yet we assume no responsibility beyond such service as 
our college physician and college infirmary are able to render. 


Examinations will be held once each term, and reports of the 
students' standing will be issued four times per year. 


Oglethorpe University has the double advantage of being 
located in the suburbs of Atlanta, so far out as not to be 
subject to the distractions of city life, yet so near in as to 
enjoy all the public utilities of a great city. Among these 
are city water, electric lights, city trolley line, telephone and 
telegraph service, and in addition thereto the University has 
its own postoffice, express office and railway station, all known 
as Oglethorpe University, Georgia. 


Students coming to Oglethorpe University from a distance 
should remember that Oglethorpe University has its own sta- 
tion on the main line of the Southern Railway between Atlanta 
and Washington. Tickets may be purchased and baggage 
checked to Oglethorpe University, Georgia, the station being 
immediately in front of the campus. Students coming to 
Atlanta over other lines may either re-check their baggage to 
the University station, or may have it delivered at a special 
rate by the Atlanta Baggage & Cab Company. In using the 
latter method mention should always be made of the special 
students' rate at the time the order is given. 

102 Oglethorpe University 


One of the most remarkable gatherings, even in this city of 
remarkable gatherings, was the assembling of approximately 
two hundred of the representative women of the city of At- 
lanta at the home of Mrs. Thornwell Jacobs, Saturday after- 
noon, November 25, • 1916, to organize a Woman's Board for 
Oglethorpe University. 

The purpose of the Board is to aid the University in every 
wise and efficient way, with counsel of and guidance by the 
proper authorities of the Institution. Already more than four 
hundred of the finest workers and most representative women 
of the city have offered their services and joined the organi- 
zation. Their activities are directed toward the support and 
development of Oglethorpe in every phase of its growth and 
activities. Each of the ladies is assigned to the committee 
on which she feels best able to serve. These committees cover 
the various departments of the University, and among them 
are: Ways and Means, Finance, Grounds, Press, Entertain- 
ment, Hospital, Music, Library, Arts, Refreshments, Trans- 
portation, and such other committees as it may seem wise to 
the Board from time to time to appoint. 

The authorities of the University welcome the formation 
of this organization with the greatest joy. The mere fact 
that they have promised a devoted allegiance to the enter- 
prise has its own genuine value, but those who know the 
women of Atlanta, with their marvelous capacity for earn- 
est and consecrated work directed by a swift and accurate
