Oglethorpe University, planned to be the capstone of the 
Educational System of the Southern Presbyterian Church is 
owned and controlled by a Board of Founders, each of whom 
is a member in good and regular standing of a Presbyte- 
rian Church, and two-thirds of whom are ratified by the 
Session of the particular Southern Presbyterian Church to 
which the member belongs. This General Board of Founders 
meets once each year, at commencement time, on the univer- 
sity grounds in Atlanta, to inspect their institution, to review 
all matters of large importance in the life of the University and 
to give directions to the Executive Committee which is elected 
by them, and from their number, and which will look after the 
details of management of the Institution between the meetings 
of the Board of Founders. Each member of the Board repre- 
sents a gift of one thousand dollars or more to the University. 

Nothing more ideal has ever been proposed in the manage- 
ment of an institution. It is already in operation and its per- 
fect practicability is largely responsible for the marvelous suc- 
cess of the University. 

Prospective students will not fail to note the quality of these 
Founders, 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 enquirers information as to 
the aims and progress of the University.

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 pat- 
ronized by the young men from Presbyterian families all over 
the nation. 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 training school and this, in turn, became 
Oglethorpe College in 1835 when Midway Hill, in the suburbs 
of Milledgeville, the then capital of the State of Georgia, was 
chosen for the location of the Institution. Old Oglethorpe Col- 
lege was thus the first denominational college or university 
between the Atlantic and the Pacific oceans south of the Vir- 
ginia line, and, of a right, claimed to be the Alma Mater of all 
that brilliant company of institutions 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 scien- 
tist and devoted Christian ; Samuel K. Talmadge, the eminent 
administrator and many others. It is, perhaps, the chief glory 
of the old Oglethorpe that after four years of instruction she 
graduated Sidney Lanier in the famous class of 1859 and that 
he was a tutor to her sons until the Spring of '61 when with the 
Oglethorpe cadets he marched away to the wars. Shortly be- 
fore his death, Lanier, looking back over his career, remarked 

16 Oglethorpe University 

to a friend that the greatest moral impulse of his life had come 
to him during his college days at Oglethorpe through the influ- 
ence of Dr. Woodrow. Her other eminent alumni include gov- 
ernors, justices, moderators of the General Assembly, discov- 
erers, inventors and a host of honest, industrious and superb 
laborers for the highest 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 days and 
financial disaster made the adventure impossible and unsuc- 
cessful, and after a year and a half of struggle the doors were 
closed for the second time. 

In the meantime, there had come with the separation of the 
Northern and Southern Church, a condition of affairs which 
left the Southern half with no capstone to its educational sys- 
tem. The best minds of the Southern Church have been con- 
stantly restless under this fact. A number of efforts were made 
to restore the Presbyterian Church to its leadership in the edu- 
cational affairs of the South, but each failed for its own par- 
ticular reason. 

The really marvelous success which has attended the effort 
begun in the Spring of 1912 to found a great Southern Presby- 
terian University, has largely resulted from the determination 
of the men and women who form her constituency, that their 
denomination shall no longer be the only strong denomination 
in the South without a university for its student life. Their 
institution is named Oglethorpe, that the fine ideals and tra- 
ditions of those early years of struggle and achievement may 
be preserved and that whatever of failure and disappointment 
filled them may be retrieved. 

Only four years have elapsed since the campaign was begun 
and they have been years of financial disaster and utter tur- 
moil, yet the assets and subscription pledges of Oglethorpe 

Oglethorpe University 17 

University are fast approaching the sum of a million dollars 
as the result of the most unusual and self-sacrificing liberality 
on the part of over five thousand people. 

The corner stone of Oglethorpe University was laid on Jan- 
uary 21, 1915, with her trustful motto engraven upon it: 
"Manu Dei Eesurrexit (By the Hand of God She has Eisen 
from the Dead.)" 


So it comes to pass that Oglethorpe University, built by the 
Southern Presbyterian Church, with the aid of generous Atlan- 
tans of all faiths, opens its doors in the Fall of 1916. After 
fifty years of rest beneath the gray ashes of fratricidal strife 
she rises to breathe the later airs of a new day. Her first 
building, constructed of granite, trimmed with limestone, cov- 
ered with slate and as near fireproof as human skill can make 
it, is ready for occupancy in the Fall of 1916, when her first 
class gathers on her beautiful campus out Peachtree Eoad. 
A faculty equal to that of any cognate institution in the 
country is being formed. The work of raising funds goes 
steadily on. Ground has been cleared for the second building, 
which will be commenced as soon as the first is finished. 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 four years ago with a contribution 
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-seeing Presbyte- 
rian leaders, who wished to erect a capstone to their educational 

18 Oglethorpe University 

system 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 church after 
church of the Presbyterian denomination 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 two 
years ago; all this is well known. During the last year 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 $35,- 
000.00. They are the Founders of Oglethorpe University; they 
belong to the great Founders' Club which is carrying the move- 
ment forward so splendidly. 

The immediate goal set for the present campaign is some- 
thing like $3,000,000.00. To this end the whole Southern 
Presbyterian Church is getting solidly back of the Institution 
with their money as well as their words of praise and prayer. 


An idea of the quality of construction and design of the In- 
stitution may be gained from the accompanying illustrations. 
(See Frontispiece). 

It will be seen that the architects and landscape artist have 
spared no pains to make it one of the really beautiful univer- 
sities 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 varie- 
gated slate. The interior construction is of steel, concrete, 
brick and hollow tile. The first building, which is nearing 
completion, is the one on the right of the entrance seen in the 
foreground of the bird's-eye view. The space has been cleared 
for the erection of the second building, which is the one with 
the tower on the left of the entrance. The total cost of con- 

Oglethoepe University 19 

struction of the buildings shown in the above design with the 
landscape work required, will be approximately $1,500,000.00. 
The building plan has been unanimously adopted and will be 
followed out in its entirety. 


But it is not so much the magnificent exterior of the Institu- 
tion about which the men who are back of Oglethorpe arc most 
concerned, it is the spiritual and intellectual life of their uni- 
versity. 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 department. They will 
gather all of the fine ideals of past efforts to found a Southern 
Presbyterian University and endeavor to weave their spirit into 
the life of their institution. They will take the superb tradi- 
tions of the old Oglethorpe and add the best of this present age 
to them. Doubtless Oglethorpe will be a big universitv 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' Eoom at Oglethorpe there will be a Book 
containing the names 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 student 
and visitor who may want to know who it was from his or her 
home that took part in the doing of this, the greatest deed that 
has been attempted for our sons and daughters in this genera- 
tion. The Book is not yet complete, because the work is not 
yet finished and each month is adding many to this roll of 
honor, whose names will thus be preserved in the life and ar- 
chives of Oglethorpe University forever. 


The contributions made by the Founders of the University 
residing out of the city of Atlanta are being segregated and 
separately recorded. The Board of Directors has in mind the 
establishment of one or more memorial professorships or build- 
ings by each Southern State. Thus the local Synodical senti- 
ment and loyalty will be worked into the life of Oglethorpe 
and each of her students will feel that a part of its own com- 
monwealth is set down on her campus. 


The following list of churches have already taken part in 
the founding of Oglethorpe University and the work of adding 
the other churches of the denomination will continue steadily 
until every Presbyterian Church in the South has had a hand 
in the founding of Oglethorpe University :

The Board of Directors of Oglethorpe University realizing 
the responsibility upon them of selecting a faculty whose spir- 
itual and intellectual equipment should be capable of satisfy- 
ing the tremendous demand of a really great institution of 
learning, has spared no efforts 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 imparting their ideals and 
knowledge and intellectual acquirements adequate for their de- 
partment. The most important element in education is the 
creation in the student of an intense 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. We are able at this time to announce the names 
of some of the members of the staff, more than sufficient for 
careful and adequate work during the first year of instruction. 
The names are given in the order of their election :

Oglethorpe University 25 

The Institution begins with the Freshman year in the Aca- 
demic Department, to which an additional class will necessar- 
ily be added each succeeding year until all departments are 
established, thus giving the Board of Directors ample time in 
which to make careful selections. 

Other officers have also been selected as follows : 


A. B., Arkansas College (Orator's medal) ; Student, S. P. U., 
Clarksville, Tenn. ; Graduate Union Theological Seminary in Vir-

the Eighth District High School Association, Georgia; Superinten- 
dent of Public School System of Monroe, Ga., (six years) ; Registrar 
and Assistant to the President, Oglethorpe University. 


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 de- 
partment of human activity. The instruction begins in Sep- 
tember, 1916, with the Freshman Class of the Collegiate 
Department; the Sophomore Class will be added in 1917, and 
the Junior and Senior Classes in 1918, and 1919, respectively. 
Certain post-graduate courses also, leading to the Master's and 
Doctors degrees, will be offered in 1916. 

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 
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 observation, in- 
spection and investigation. 

The first unit of the building plan, ready for occupancy in 
the Fall, is the equivalent in capacity of four buildings, each 
50 by 60 feet, three stories high. Of these, two are dormitories, 
one, lecture halls, laboratories and offices and the fourth, dining 
hall and refectory. There is also a central heating plant in

In the Schools of Arts, Science, Commerce, Literature 
and Journalism 

The requirement for entrance to the Academic Schools of 
Oglethorpe University is fifteen units, from a school of good 
standing. Students offering twelve units may be admitted on 
condition. In either case the candidate must present three 
units in English and two in Mathematics. In the Schools of 
Arts, Science and Literature three units in Latin must also be 

A unit represents a year's study in any subject in a second- 
ary 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 fre- 
quent insufficiencies of preparation of prospective students 
brought about by inadequate High School facilities. It is the 
purpose of the University to make its degrees represent high 
attainment, but to furnish such facilities for students that 
this attainment will be fairly simple and easy. It is not our 
purpose by the adoption of specially high entrance requirements 
to drive away any students from our institution. Adequate ar- 
rangements 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 fifteen units may be selected from the following list :

The President of the University will gladly answer any in- 
quiries as to further details of entrance requirements, upon 
request. An application blank will be found at the close of 
the catalog. It is well for the prospective student to apply as 
early as possible. 



Beginning in the Fall of 1916 Oglethorpe University will 
offer courses in four schools leading to the customary Academic 
degrees. The degree of Bachelor of Arts (B. A.) will be con- 
ferred upon those students satisfactorily completing a four 
years' course as outlined below, based largely on the study of 
"the Humanities." The degree of Bachelor of Science (B. S.) 
will be conferred upon those students who satisfactorily com- 
plete a four years' course largely in scientific studies. The 
degree of Bachelor of Literature (B. Litt.) will be given to 
those students who complete a course including special work in 
languages, literature and journalism. The degree of Bachelor 
of Commerce (B. Com.) will be conferred upon those students 
who satisfactorily complete a full four years' course in studies 
relating particularly to business administration and industrial 

By a careful study of the courses outlined below the student 
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 prepar- 
ing to enter such professions as the Ministry or Law, will 
choose the B. A. Course ; those looking forward to Medicine, 
Dentistry and other Scientific work, the B. S. Course; those 
expecting to enter the literary and journalistic field, the B. 
Litt. Course, and those who intend to spend their lives in the 
business world the B. Com. Course. 

While each of these courses is so shaped as to influence the 
student towards a specific end, colored largely by the type of 
studies they include, yet each course will be found to include 
such subjects of general culture as are necessary to the educa- 
tion of a life as distinguished from a living.

The electives in the Junior and Senior years in the School of 
Commerce must be chosen from courses offered in the History of 
Commerce, Commercial Law, Commercial Geography, Economics, 
Political Science, Sociology, Printing, Publishing and Advertising", 

36 Oglethorpe University 

Business Statistics, Mining, Manufacturing, Transportation, Finance 
and Accounting, Banking and Insurance, Forestry and Agriculture, 
History, Science and Modern Languages. 

In addition to the courses in the regular departments above indi- 
cated, the business life of the city of Atlanta will be used as a labora- 
tory for the instruction of our students in every phase of the modern 
business world. Prominent business men of the city will be used as 
lecturers in various phases of the commercial life of our country, in 
which they are expert. Actual inspection and work in some of the 
greatest business concerns of Atlanta will be given to those students 
in the higher classes who desire especially to acquaint themselves at 
first hand with the workings of great commercial enterprises. 

The courses in the School of Commerce are designed and 
offered specially for those young men who expect to give their 
lives to business affairs and who desire to devote their entire 
time while in college to the study of those subjects which will 
be of the greatest practical use to them in their business careers. 

Oglethorpe University thus takes a position of leadership in 
recognizing Business as a profession of equal dignity and 
depth with the so-called "learned" professions. 


It is the purpose of Oglethorpe University, beginning with 
the first year, 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. In general, 
it may be said that the degree of Master of Arts will be given 
for one year of additional study in graduate subjects more or 
less related to each other. The degree of Doctor of Philosophy 

Oglethorpe University 37 

requires 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 concerned and the 
whole Faculty. It is required that the candidate for Ph. D. 
demonstrate by examination not later than the end of his first 
year his ability to read German and French, and the stu- 
dent must have completed the undergraduate work in the 
subject to which he wishes to give his chief attention. 

In this connection, the prospective student will be interested 
in learning that all professors chosen as the heads of depart- 
ments in Oglethorpe University must have obtained the high- 
est academic degree offered in that department. This fact is 
mentioned in order to indicate the earnest determination 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 during 1916- 


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, a,s well as the valuable opportunity for contact with aca- 
demic work, renders this connection highly desirable. It is the 
purpose of the University to enter the field of professional 
education as quickly as funds are secured to enable us to do so 
adequately. Schools of Engineering, Architecture, Dentistry, 
Law and Medicine will be established as opportunity 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. 

38 Oglethorpe University 


Students who are looking forward to Medicine, Law or En- 
gineering and who do not desire to study for an Academic de- 
gree are allowed to take such courses as will lead to their pro- 
fessional work. Such students must present at least twelve 
units for entrance; of these four and one-half are required: 
English (3) and Mathematics (1%)- The following courses 
are suggested: 

Pre-Medical: First Year — Physics (1), Chemistry (1), 
Biology (1), English (1), Bible (1), German (1). 
Second Year — Physics (2), Chemistry (2), Biology (2), 
either Greek or French (1), Bible (2). 

Pre-Legal: First Year — Economics, Chemistry (1), English 
(1), Bible (1), History (1) or (2), Latin (1). 
Second Year — Psychology, Bible (2), German (1), 
French (1), Spanish (1). 

Pre-Engineering : First Year — Mathematics (1), Physics 
(1), Chemistry (1), English (1), Bible (1), German 


Second Year — Mathematics (2), Physics (2), Chemis- 
try (2), French (1), Spanish (1). 


The attention of the prospective student should, however, 
be clearly called to the fact that each year finds it more neces- 
sary for the professional man to have a thorough foundation 
for his professional studies and the professional schools are 
becoming more strict in their requirements for entrance. Par- 
ticularly is this the case in Medicine, where the best medical 
colleges require a diploma from a standard college for en- 
trance. We would strongly advise our students to study the 
suggestions made on page thirty and have their college diploma 
safely in hand before they enter their professional studies. 


The policy of the Board of Directors of the University has 
been and will be to fasten slowly" in the work of organization 
of the institution. They have therefore decided to begin the 
first year's work with one class, the Freshman, although in or- 
der to meet the conditions arising from the unequal amounts 
of secondary preparation, courses in the Sophomore year will 
be offered to those students who are prepared for them. From 
the beginning such equipment as is necessary will be provided. 

The courses outlined herewith, are stated, therefore, fully 
for the Freshman year and in abbreviated form for the years 
to follow except in those departments for which full professors 
have been chosen and in which the Institution is ready to offer 
graduate as well as under-graduate courses. 

The courses offered for the year 1916-17 are as follows: 


The course in English Bible extends over two years: it is 
required for B. A., B. S., B. Lit. and B. Com. degrees, and 
must be pursued by every under-graduate student. 

The first year will be devoted to the Old Testament, the sec- 
ond to the New Testament, together with the intervening 
period. The study will include the mastery of the history con- 
tained 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 profit. 

The effort will be made to give the students the proper de- 
fense of seeming difficulties in the Bible, both for their own 
benefit, and that they may be able to meet the objections of un- 

40 Oglethorpe University 

Text-Books. — The English Bible (with references) will be 
the chief text-book. Such other books as are needed will be 
indicated from time to time. 

This course will be followed in the Junior and Senior years 
by Psychology, Moral Philosophy, Theism, Ethics, and Evi- 
dences of Christianity. 


. The traditions of Oglethorpe University, who numbers 
among her alumni, Sidney Lanier, one of the "Nine immortal 
Muses of America/' render it a necessary as well as a delight- 
ful task for the Institution to give full emphasis to this de- 

The Freshman year will be concerned with a careful study 
of the best forms of English Literature, prose and poetry, with 
frequent exercises in the art of composition. 

The first half of the year will be devoted to the study of the 
best prose forms and the latter half to typical and representa- 
tive verse. In this connection the life and works of Sidney 
Lanier will be especially studied as an example of an illustrious 
national writer, born and educated in the South. 

In the Sophomore year courses will be offered covering a 
critical study of the earlier epochs of English Literature. 

The Junior year will continue in historical sequence and the 
Senior year will be concerned largely with American writers 
of prose and poetry. 

The courses will include frequent special lectures by visiting 
literati as well as by the Professor in charge. 


Three years of Greek will be offered in the under-graduate 
classes, together with a Preparatory Class for those who are 
unprepared for Greek (1). 

W M 

Oglethorpe University 41 

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 im- 
portant subjects, both in inflection and syntax, are pre- 
sented early in the course, and then, by a system of weekly 
reviews, are kept constantly fresh. 

Text-Books. — Benner and Smyth's Beginner's Greek 
Book, Xenophon's Anabasis (Goodwin and White). 

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 reci- 
tation some practice is had in translating English into 

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

2. — The authors read in this class are Demosthenes, 
Herodotus and Homer. The literature of the subject will 
also be studied, and some instruction will be given in 

3. — The time of this class will be divided between 
prose and poetry. After the study of Plato and Thucy- 

42 Oglethorpe University 

dides, the reading of Sophocles or one of the other dra- 
matists will be taken up. The life of the ancient Greeks 
will also be considered. 

Graduate Courses. — A brief statement of the work proposed 
may be given here. Fuller details will be announced later. 
Those who are thinking of taking the graduate courses are 
advised to write to the President or to the Professor, that 
their preliminary studies may be so guided as to fit them 
for the work. The requirements for entrance into these 
courses are given elsewhere in this catalogue, under the 
head of Graduate School. 

The work of this department may be considered under three 
heads, each running through three years: 

I. Literary. — The aim will be to read a large amount of 
Greek. The first year will be devoted to Homer, the sec- 
ond to the Age of Pericles, the third to the later literature. 

II. Scientific. — Certain philological subjects will be stu- 
died, such as the History of Classical Philology, Textual 
Criticism, Inscriptions, Palaeography, Archaeology. 

III. Practical. — The student will be required to attend one 
of the under-graduate classes, and from time to time will 
conduct the recitation in the presence of the Professor, in 
order that he may gain some experience in teaching. 


As the International Sunday School Lessons for 1916 and 
a part of 1917 are to be in the New Testament, a class will be 
formed for the study of these lessons in Greek. No very 
learned exegesis will be attempted; the aim will be simply to 
read the Greek and explain the forms and syntax. This course 
is intended not merely for those who can read Greek, but also 
for those who have never studied the language. There will be 

Oglethorpe University 43 

one meeting a week, at a time to be determined later. Some 
convenient place in Atlanta will probably be chosen for the 
meetings. The only book needed will be a copy of the New 
Testament in Greek ; the best is Westcott and Hort's New Tes- 
tament in Greek, Students' Edition, with vocabulary ($1.90). 
There will be no charge of any kind for this course. 


1. — For entrance into this class the student is expected 
to have read the usual amounts of Caesar, Cicero and Ver- 
gil, as set forth under the head of Entrance Units. He 
must also be able to translate English into Latin with 
some facility. Livy, Cicero de Amicitia and Sallust's 
Jugurthine War will be studied in this year. A brief his- 
tory of Rome will atao be included. Prose composition, 
both oral and written, will be carried on throughout the 

Text-Books.— Livy XXI, XXII (Greenough and Peck) 
Cicero de Amicitia, Sallust's Jugurthine War. 
Allen and Greenough's Latin Grammar, History of 
Rome, Harpers' Latin Dictionary. 
2. — The studies of this class will be in Cicero's Let- 
ters, Horace and Plautus. A course in Latin Literature 
will also be given. 

3. — This class will begin with Terence, and then take 
up Tacitus and Juvenal. Ancient Roman life will be con- 
sidered in this part of the course. 

Teachers' Course. — A course of instruction will be given 
for teachers in and near Atlanta. The aim will be to suggest 
methods for beginners and for classes in Caesar, Cicero and 
Vergil. Certain departments of the grammar will be dis- 
cussed, e. g., the Subjunctive Mood; scanning will be illus- 
trated, and attention given to topics which have caused diffi- 
culty to teachers. Suggestions will be made as to the best 

44 Oglethorpe University 

means of helping pupils to acquire a good vocabulary in Latin. 
The mode of procedure and the subjects treated will depend 
somewhat on the personnel of the class. 

The work will be undertaken if as many as ten persons offer 
themselves. A nominal charge of one dollar for the course will 
be made for each member of the class. This class will prob- 
ably meet on Saturday. 

Graduate Course for Special Students. — Persons who 
are teaching or otherwise occupied during the week and who 
would like to do some graduate work in Latin or Greek by 
coming on Saturdays, should communicate with the Professor. 


For the present a two years' course in French will be offered. 

1. — This is a class for beginners, but the idea is to ad- 
vance as rapidly as possible to a reading knowledge of the 
language. Careful attention will be given from the first 
to pronunciation. 

Text-Books. — Fraser and Squair's French Grammar; a 
French Keader, to be followed by some simple text. 

2. — The aim of this class will be to read more rapidly 
both prose and poetry. French History and Literature 
will also be studied. 


As these are Junior and Senior studies, they will not be of- 
fered the first year. Provision will be made for them at the 
proper time. 


1. Plane and Spherical Trigonometry. Conant. 

First Half of Freshman Year. 

2. Higher Algebra. Fisher and Schwatt. Infinite series,

They will deal with special modern aspects of the field of 
Mathematics. Work leading to degree of A. M. is offered be- 
ginning in 1916. 

46 Oglethorpe University 

The Stacy-Capers Telescope. — By the generosity of Eev. 
T. Stacy Capers the University has received the gift of the 
excellent refraction telescope, formerly the property of Dr. 
James Stacy, his uncle, for so many years pastor of the Pres- 
byterian Church at Newnan and Stated Clerk of the Synod of 
Georgia. Dr. Stacy, in whose memory Mr. Capers gave the 
instrument, was an alumnus of the old Oglethorpe.

of maturity to become introduced to Seminary Methods of 
History Study. 

Oglethorpe University 47 


The purpose for the work in this department is to give a 
reasonably fluent ability in the speaking of German, this to be 
followed by more critical study of Grammar. Accordingly 
the first work will be largely conversational and translation 
will be avoided. By means of easy stories "Sprachgefuehl" 
will gradually be developed. It is expected that a student will 
be able to speak the language after two years of study. 

1 and 2. Elementary German. The elements of German 
Grammar with reading and composition. During the Spring 
Semester one evening in the week will be devoted to the sing- 
ing of German songs, "Gesangabend." Walter Krause's Be- 
ginner's German. Storm's Immensee, Seidel's Leberecht Huen- 
chen, Zillern's Hoeher als die Kirche and other similar short 

Freshman Class, Fall and Spring Semesters. 

3 and 4. Modern Authors. The texts chosen are mainly 
from the narrative prose of the nineteenth century by such 
authors as: Keller, Ebner-Eschenbach, Wildenbruch, Suder-

The purposes of the departments of Chemistry, Physics and 
Biology may be briefly stated as follows : 

1. To offer thorough lecture and laboratory courses of in- 
formational and disciplinary value as part of a general college 
curriculum. No apology is necessary for the belief that he 
only can claim to be truly educated who has learned in some 
measure to observe accurately, to reason logically from his ob- 
servations, and to co-ordinate hand and brain in all that he 
may do. 

2. To offer progressive and sequential courses designed to 
give a high degree of knowledge and technical proficiency to 
the Scientific Student specializing in one or more of these 

3. To offer such courses in these sciences as are commonly 
required for entrance into our best schools of medicine, den- 
tistry, pharmacy, and engineering. 

4. To offer courses designed to meet the needs of Prospec- 
tive Teachers of these sciences in colleges and secondary schools, 
giving them not only a thorough training in the content of the 
subjects, but also in the best methods of imparting it to others. 

5. To offer to properly prepared Graduate Students ad- 
vanced courses and opportunities for research in one or more 
of these sciences, leading to advanced Academic degrees. 


1. (a). General Chemistry. 

(&). Experimental Chemistry and Qualitative Analy- 
Lectures, demonstrations and recitations, together with se- 

Oglethorpe University 53 

lected exercises in the laboratory, designed not only to impart 
a knowledge of the principles of the science, and of the metal- 
lic and non-metallic elements, but to constitute an introduc- 
tion to scientific methods of experimentation, observation and 

During the first half of the year the lectures precede the 
work of the laboratory, in which the student is expected to 
verify and illustrate many of the principles and facts which 
have been discussed in the lecture room. 

During the latter half of the year, while the lectures are on 
the chemistry of the metals, the laboratory work will be sys- 
tematic qualitative analysis. 

No previous study of chemistry is required for admission to 
this course, but the instruction is so arranged that work of a 
somewhat advanced character is given to those students who 
have spent considerable time upon chemical work in secondary 

This course fulfills the chemistry requirements for admis- 
sion into medical colleges. 

Three lectures and recitations, and four hours of laboratory 
work per week through the year. Eequired of Sophomores. 

2. (a). Organic Chemistry. 
(&). Quantitative Analysis, 
(c). Practical Organic Chemistry. 

The lectures, demonstrations, and recitations in organic 
chemistry continue through the year. In the laboratory exer- 
cises, which have been carefully chosen to illustrate the prin- 
ciples of volumetric and gravimetric analysis are given during 
the first half of the year. The remainder of the time is occu- 
pied with the preparation of typical organic compounds and 
their analysis and identification. 

Three lectures and recitations, and four hours of laboratory 
work per week throughout the year. Elective. 

54 Oglethorpe University 

3. (a). Theoretical and Physical Chemistry. 
(6). Physical Chemical Measurements, 
(c). Advanced Quantitative Analysis. 

A study of the laws of chemical combination ; the properties 
of gases, liquids, solids; solutions; thermo-chemistry ; electro- 
chemistry; chemical dynamics and statics. 

The laboratory time will be divided between exercises in 
physical chemical measurements, as for example, vapor den- 
sities, molecular weights, degree of ionization, electrical con- 
ductivities, transport numbers, reaction velocities, etc., and 
exercises in quantitative analysis of a more technical and ad- 
vanced character than those given in 2-b. 

Two hours lecture, six hours laboratory practice per week 
through the year. Elective. 

Graduate Work. — No student will be accepted for grad- 
uate work who cannot satisfy the department as to his prepa- 
ration in inorganic, organic and elementary physical chemis- 
try, and qualitative and quantitative analysis. It is not thought 
advisable to outline at present detailed courses for graduate 
students. Work will be offered as needed in advanced organic, 
inorganic, physical and historical chemistry, and in the lab- 
oratory in special methods of analysis, as food and drug analy- 
sis, water analysis, gas analysis, electro analysis, and metallur- 
gical analysis. 

When the student is deemed prepared, he will be given a 
problem for investigation, usually co-operating with the in- 
structor in his own researches. Prospective graduate students 
should correspond with the department as early as possible, 
giving a full account of their previous preparation and of the 
character of work they wish to pursue. 

Equipment. — The facilities for demonstration in the lec- 
ture room and for work in the laboratory are quite adequate 
for present needs, and will be added to continually. The lab- 
oratory is equipped with all necessary working desks, hoods, 

Oglethorpe University 55 

hot plates, drying ovens, and water stills, and gas, water, elec- 
tric current, blast and vacuum are conveniently at hand. 

The library contains standard books of reference and some 
technical journals, and in addition, the facilities of the Atlanta 
libraries are at the disposal of the pupils. 


1. General Physics. — Lectures, demonstrations, recita- 
tions, and laboratory exercises on the mechanics of solids and 
fluids, molecular mechanics, the phenomena and laws of sound, 
heat, light, electricity and magnetism. 

The laboratory work is almost exclusively quantitative, de- 
signed to impart training in the manipulation of instruments 
employed in physical investigation, and to give practice in 
properly recording, interpreting, and reducing experimental 

This course fulfills the requirements of the pre-medical year. 

Three lectures and recitations, four hours of laboratory work 
per week through the year. Eequired of Freshmen. 

2. Theoretical Physics: Mechanics, Heat, Light — Es- 
sentially the same ground is covered as in this part of Course 1, 
but the subject is presented in a more detailed way both exper- 
imentally and mathematically. 

The laboratory work is of a more rigidly accurate character 
and particular attention is directed to the recognition, elimina- 
tion and estimation of errors. 

Two lectures and recitations, six hours of laboratory work 
per week through the year. Elective. 

3. Theoretical Physics : Electricity and Magnetism. — 
See description of Course 2. 

Two hours of lecture and recitations, six hours of laboratory 
work per week through the year. Elective. 

Graduate Work. — The statements made above in regard to 
graduate work in chemistry apply in the main to physics. Spe- 

56 Oglethorpe University 

cial work of an advanced character will be given to those who 
may be prepared in physics and in mathematics according to 
their need or desires and the facilities of the Institution. 

Equipment. — It will be the aim to continually provide the 
pupil with apparatus of the highest grade and to enlarge the 
equipment as may be necessary. 


1. General Biology. — The purpose of the course is to ac- 
quaint the general student with the principles of biology 
through selected practical studies of living things. A survey 
is made of the morphology and physiology, classification and 
life history of selected types, designed to give the student who 
goes no further with the subject a comprehensive view of the 
animal and vegetable kingdoms, while for the student who 
will continue biological study, it is intended to afford a sub- 
stantial basis for more extensive and intensive special work. 

The laboratory work is of especial significance. Much em- 
phasis is placed on the accuracy with which the student's note 
book depicts what he has seen through his microscope. 

This course fulfills the requirements of the pre-medical year. 

Two lectures and recitations, six hours laboratory work per 
week through the year. Eequired of Sophomores in Science. 

2. Human Anatomy and Physiology. — While necessa- 
rily this course is not as exhaustive as when given in the best 
schools of medicine, it supplies a splendid foundation for the 
latter. The origin and development of the various structures 
of the human body, and their functions, are in all cases pre- 
sented in relation to those of lower forms of animal life. 

The laboratory work of the course is mostly mammalian 
anatomy, based upon a study of the cat, but dissections are 
made of other animals as well. 

Two lectures and recitations, six hours laboratory work per 
week through the year. Elective.

3. Bacteriology. — A study of bacterial life and develop- 
ment. Non-pathologic bacteria are mostly studied. 

The laboratory work is designed to impart the important 
points of bacteriological technique, as cleansing and steriliza- 
tion of apparatus, preparation of culture media, methods of 
culture and staining. 

Two lectures and recitations, six hours laboratory work per 
week through the year. 

Graduate Work. — No announcement of graduate work will 
be made at present. 

Equipment. — The equipment of the laboratory consists of 
the usual dissecting tables, microscopes, microtomes, ovens and 
sterilizers, etc., and collections of slides and other illustrative 


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 capitol 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 acre 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 heavy green slate. All of them 
will be as fire-proof as human skill can make them and as 
«ommodious and comfortable as our archietcts* can plan

them. They will be like the first building already erected, 
which is believed to be the safest, most beautiful and most effi- 
cient college or university building in the Southeast. 


The attractions of the City of Atlanta as an educational 
center are fast making it one of the great intellectual dynamos 
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 activi- 
ties, 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 posi- 
tion and opportunity which she will cultivate to the uttermost. 
Facilities for hearing and meeting the great musicians and au- 
thors and public speakers and the leaders in all spheres of in- 
tellectual 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 buildings, whose walls often de- 
face their campus. The architecture of an institution of learn- 
ing should be a constant source of delight and inspiration to 
its students, teaching quietly, but surely the highest ideals of 
life. Indeed all those great qualities of soul we know as hon- 
esty, solidity, dignity, durability, reverence and beauty may be 

Oglethorpe University 59 

expressed in the face of a building as surely as in that of a man 
and are so expressed on the Oglethorpe campus. 

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 inspiration 
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 in- 
terest that our first few years will offer exceptional opportuni- 
ties of that nature. It is well known that in all our large in- 
stitutions only the upper classmen come in any close contact 
with the full professors, who as heads of departments occupy 
their time in other matters than educating Freshmen. 

We believe in giving our Freshmen the best we have and they 
will be taught by men who have taught in or had offered them, 
chairs in the greatest universities of America. 

While this will be a permanent policy at Oglethorpe, yet the 
fact that we shall open in the Fall of 1916 with only one class, 
the Freshman, offers a perfect opportunity for its exemplifica- 
tion, which discerning students and parents will not fail to 


The dormitory facilities of Oglethorpe University are the 
safest and most comfortable of any cognate institution in the 
South. All the buildings of the university will be like the first 
one now being finished, which is believed to be absolutely fire- 
proof, being constructed of steel, concrete and granite with par- 
titions of brick and hollow tile. 

The boarding department of the Institution is conducted at 
cost to 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 included 
in the room rent. 

The prices named below are based upon two grades of rooms. 
The first of these comprises the entire second floor of the first 
building, which is fifty (50) feet wide and one hundred and 
eighty (180) feet long, and is composed of suites of rooms, 
each suite including a bed room, bath and study. The price 
charged for the suite 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 suites are large, 
airy, safe and comfortable and are roomy enough for the use 
of from one to four young men. The prices are as follows : 

2nd floor rooms, two to room and bath, per year, each, $190.00 

2nd floor rooms, one to room and bath, per year 240.00 

2nd floor rooms, one to suite of two rooms and bath, 340.00 

The prices named include all the items above specified and 
cover the school term of nine months. 

The third floor of the building, possessing the same general 
advantages, is divided into individual rooms, with general toilet

and bath room on the same floor. The price of these rooms is 
lower than of those on the second floor, rates being as follows : 

3rd floor rooms, 4 to room (only in very large room) 

per year, each $165.00 

3rd floor rooms, 2 to room, per year, each 180.00 

3rd floor rooms, 1 to room, per year 220.00 

These rooms while varying slightly in size are all large, airy 
and comfortable. Each contains a lavatory furnishing hot and 
cold water. 

As stated above, the prices named include board, as well as 
room rent and all rooms are provided with ample closet space, 
electric lights, steam heat, with adequate and substantial oak 
furniture, including chiffonier, study-table, single bed, spring 
and mattress for each student. 

Room linen and bed-clothing will be furnished by the 

Applications for rooms should be filed at once. 


The university fees are: 

The tuition fee for the entire year is $100.00 

Other college fees, including matriculation, library, 

gymnasium, medical, etc 25.00 

Total $125.00 

Laboratory and science fees are made as low as is consistent 
with the proper use of laboratory materials. 


It will be observed that the total cost for the entire year, in- 
cluding tuition and all college fees, board and room rent, heat, 
light and janitor service ranges from $290.00 per year upward 
according to the rooming accommodations desired.

It is the intention of the authorities of the University to see 
that a way is provided as far as possible for the assistance of 
any student who may be in pecuniary need and yet desirous of 
prosecuting his studies at Oglethorpe. A special Faculty Com- 
mittee will co-operate with students to that end. 

Eealizing its deep indebtedness to the church for its own 
growth and desiring to further her every interest, the authori- 
ties of the University will remit tuition fees of sons of minis- 
ters and candidates for the ministry under the care of Pres- 

For further information address the President, Atlanta, Ga. 


The policy of Oglethorpe University includes the develop- 
ment of the physical life of our students as a matter of large 
importance. Physical and hygienic welfare and instruction 
will be a part of the curriculum of the Institution. A mod- 
ern gymnasium, adequately equipped is included in plans for 
one of the next buildings to be constructed. Temporary 
athletic rooms are in the Administration Building. Adequate 
provision is being made for foot-ball and base-ball grounds, 
tennis courts, etc. 

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

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

Eegular instruction, looking to symmetrical development of 
the entire man will be given in the athletic department of the 
University, under competent medical guidance. 


The ability of a college or university to develop worthy char- 
acter in its students depends largely upon that indefinable 
quality called "college atmosphere." As a mother, she breathes 
her own soul into her boys. They inherit all that 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 through 
which she has passed strengthens them for their own conflicts 
in the days that are to come. 

66 Oglethoepe University 

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 prominent 
ante-bellum universities she died for her ideals and alone of 
all the universities of America God has raised her from the 

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 Him. 


Examinations will be held two or three times a year, and 
reports of the students' standing will be issued every four or 
five weeks. 


The proper form for use in making a bequest to Oglethorpe 
University is as follows : 

"I hereby give and bequeath to Oglethorpe University, 

a corporation of Fulton County, Georgia, $ 


If you desire to leave property, in addition to, or instead of, 
money, describe the property carefully under the advice of your 
lawyer. Time and chance work their will upon us all. Now is 
the hour to attend to this matter. Do now for your university 
what you would have done.
