□ = 

I I MAY BE WISE IN THEE. SINK THOU MY FOUNDATIONS | 

i DEEP INTO THY BOSOM UNTIL THEY REST UPON THE VAST | 

I ROCK OF THY COUNSEL. LIFT THOU MY WALLS INTO THE | 

i CLEAR EMPYREAN OF THY TRUTH. COVER ME WITH THE | 

I WINGS THAT SHADOW FROM ALL HARM. LAY MY THRESH- | 

i OLDS IN HONOR AND MY LINTELS IN LOVE. SET THOU MY | 

I FLOORS IN THE CEMENT OF UNBREAKABLE FRIENDSHIP AND | 

I MAY MY WINDOWS BE TRANSPARENT WITH HONESTY. LEAD § 

I THOU UNTO ME, LORD GOD, THOSE WHOM THOU HAST AP- | 

= POINTED TO BE MY CHILDREN, AND WHEN THEY SHALL | 

I COME WHO WOULD LEARN OF ME THE WISDOM OF THE | 

I YEARS, LET THE CRIMSON OF MY WINDOWS GLOW WITH | 

I THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD. LET THEM SEE, MY LORD, | 

I HIM WHOM THOU HAST SHOWN ME; LET THEM HEAR HIM | 

I WHOSE VOICE HAS WHISPERED TO ME AND LET THEM REACH | 

I OUT THEIR HANDS AND TOUCH HIM WHO HAS GENTLY LED | 

i ME UNTO THIS GOOD DAY. ROCK-RIBBED MAY I STAND FOR | 

= THY TRUTH. LET THE STORMS OF EVIL BEAT ABOUT ME | 

1 IN VAIN. MAY I SAFELY SHELTER THOSE WHO COME UNTO | 

I ME FROM THE WINDS OF ERROR. LET THE LIGHTNING THAT | 

I LIES IN THE CLOUD OF IGNORANCE BREAK UPON MY HEAD | 

I IN DESPAIR. MAY THE YOUNG AND THE PURE AND THE | 

I CLEAN-HEARTED PUT THEIR TRUST SECURELY IN ME NOR | 

I MAY ANY WHO COME TO MY HALLS FOR GUIDANCE BE | 

I SENT ASTRAY. LET THE BLUE ASHLARS OF MY BREAST | 

i THRILL TO THE HAPPY SONGS OF THE TRUE-HEARTED AND | 

I MAY THE VERY HEART OF MY CAMPUS SHOUT FOR JOY | 

1 AS IT FEELS THE TREAD OF THOSE WHO MARCH FOR GOD. | 

I ALL THIS I PRAY THEE; AND YET THIS MORE: THAT THERE | 

1 MAY BE NO STAIN UPON MY STONES, FOREVER. AMEN. |

The Government of the University 
Board of Founders* 



The details of the management of Oglethorpe Uni- 
versity are handled by an Executive Committee of 
the Board of Directors. The property is legally held 
in trust by a Board of Trustees of seven men. The 
General Board of Directors 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 to the University, and to 
give directions to the Executive Committee which is 
elected by them and from their number, and which at- 
tends to the details of management of the institution 
between the meetings of the Board of Directors. 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. 

In many cases they represent groups, societies, 
churches or families who combined their gifts in the 
founding 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 consum- 
mated this fine purpose. As representatives and gov- 
ernors of the institution they will take pleasure in 
giving any inquirers information as to the aims and 
progress of the University.

Oglethorpe University 15 

Historical Sketch 

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 rap- 
idly 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 
Presbyteranism 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 Ogle- 
thorpe College in 1835 when Midway Hill, in the sub- 
urbs of Milledgeville, then the capital of the state 
of Georgia, was chosen for the location of the insti- 
tution. Old Oglethorpe College was thus the first de- 
nominational college or university between the Atlan- 
tic and Pacific Oceans south of the Virginia 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 and devoted Christian and sci- 



16 Oglethorpe University 

entist; Samuel K. Talmadge, the eminent administra- 
tor, and many others. It is, perhaps, the chief glory 
of Old Oglethorpe that ofter three years of instruction 
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 to the wars. Shortly before his death, Lanier, 
looking back over his career, remarked to a friend that 
the greatest intellectual 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, moderators of the 
General Assembly, discovers, 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 for bar- 
racks and hospital, were later burned. An effort was 
made to revive the institution in the '70's and to lo- 
cate it in Atlanta, but the evils of reconstruction days 
and financial disaster made the adventure impossible 
and unsuccessful, and after a year and a half of strug- 
gle the doors were closed for the second time. 

Only twenty-one years have passed since the present 
movement to refound the university began and they 
have been years of financial disaster and utter tur- 
moil, yet the assets and subscription pledges of the in- 
stitution have passed the sum of one and a half mil- 
lion dollars as the result of unusual and self-sacrificing 
liberality on the part of over five thousand people. 

The corner 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 17 

The Opening, September 20, 1916 

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 gran- 
ite, trimmed with limestone, covered with slate and as 
near fireproof as human skill can make it, was ready 
for occupancy in the fall of 1916, when her first class 
gathered on her beautiful campus on Peachtree Road. 
A faculty equal to that of any cognate institution in 
the country was 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 has darkened the spirit of the whole nation. 

The Romance of Her Resurrection 

The story of the resurrection of Oglethorpe reads 
like a romance. Beginning only twenty-two years ago 
with a contribution of $100.00 a year for ten years 
from her present president, 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 educational leaders, who wished 
to erect a certain 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 was told in 
101 cities and towns, and all over the South from Gal- 
veston, Texas, to Charlottesville, Virginia, and from 
Marshall, Missouri, to Bradenton, Florida, each one 
of them giving $1,000.00 or more to the enterprise ; the 
splendid triumph of the Atlanta campaigns; all this is 



18 Oglethorpe University 

well known. Since that time the same wonderful rec- 
ord 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 $1,000. They are the Founders' Club which is 
carrying the movement forward so splendidly. 

Her Architectural Beauty 

An idea of the quality of construction and design of 
the institution may be gained from the accompanying 
illustrations. 

It will be seen that the architects and landscape 
artists spared no pains to make it one of the really 
beautiful universities of America. The architecture 
is Collegiate Gothic; the building material it a beau- 
tiful blue granite trimmed with limestone. All the 
buildings will be covered with heavy variegated slates. 
The interior 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 building given by Dr. and Mrs. 
Lupton and their son, our beloved benefactors, is the 
one with the tower just opposite on the left of the en- 
trance. Lowry Hall, the gift of Col. and Mrs. R. J. 
Lowry, stands completed at the end of the main axis 
directly in front of the entrance. The total cost of 
construction of the buildings shown in the above de- 
sign with the landscape work required, will be ap- 
proximately $4,000,000. The building plan will be fol- 
lowed out in its entirety. 

The Oglethorpe Campus 

By the generosity of Mr. William Randolph Hearst, 
Oglethorpe is the possessor of one of the finest college 



Oglethorpe University 19 

campuses in the entire world. In the summer of 1929 
Mr. Hearst gave to the University the entire Silver 
Lake Estates, four hundred acres of primeval forest 
surrounding an eighty acre lake with something like 
five miles of graded roads winding through it. As 
this property immediately adjoins the two hundred 
acres already possessed by the University, the com- 
pleted campus consists of a body of six hundred acres 
of land in one tract in the immediate vicinity of At- 
lanta, on Peachtree Road and on the main line of the 
Southern Railroad. This gift of Mr, Hearst provides 
for the University ample space for future development 
and protects its growth from encroachment by urban 
Atlanta whose suburbs are rapidly surrounding the 
campus. 

Hermance Stadium 

During the summer of 1929 the first section of 
Hermance Stadium was erected at a cost of something 
over $100,000. Like all the other Oglethorpe build- 
ings it is constructed of granite, trimmed with carved 
limestone. The seats are of reinforced concrete. This 
first section which seats about five thousand, com- 
prises approximately one-ninth of the total seating 
capacity, when completed it will have cost something 
like $750,000 and will have a seating capacity of ap- 
proximately that of the Roman Colosseum, 45,000. It 
is named in honor of Dr. and Mrs. Harry P. Hermance, 
Hal Hermance and Miss Helena Hermance, the donors. 

Her Spiritual and Intellectual Ideals 

But it is not so much the magnificent exterior of 
the institution about which the men who are founding 



20 Oglethorpe University 

Oglethorpe are most concerned, it is the spiritual and 
intellectual life of their university. To that end they 
have resolved to maintain a faculty and a curricu- 
lum that will be of the highest possible quality, their 
thought being excellence in every department. They 
will take the superb traditions of the Old Oglethorpe 
and add the best of this present age to them. 

Founders' Book 

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 alphabetically, 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 generation. The Book is not yet complete, be- 
cause 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 archives of Ogle- 
thorpe University forever. 

Clock and Chimes 

In the tower of the building given by Dr. and 
Mrs. J. T. Lupton, is installed a clock and chimes, 
with three dials, ten bells and night illumination, the 
gift of friends of the University. It is interesting to 
note that this is the only set of chimes on any college 
campus in Georgia. Concerts on the chimes are given 
daily and are broadcast over station WJTL. 

Radio Station 

By the generosity of Dr. John Thomas Lupton, there 
has been installed in Lupton Hall a complete Radio 



Oglethorpe University 21 

Broadcasting Station, WJTL, the Radio Division of 
Oglethorpe University. The purpose of the installa- 
tion was to enable the University to reach thousands of 
persons in and around the city of Atlanta who can- 
not conveniently attend college on the campus of the 
University but who desire to take courses with or 
without matriculation for college degrees and credits. 

Station WJTL was installed and began operation on 
May 24, 1931, and a complete statement of its scope 
and the courses offered will be found elsewhere in 
this catalogue. 

The Faculty of the University 

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 de- 
mands of a really great institution 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 
imparting their ideals and knowledge, and intellec- 
tual acquirements adequate for their department. 
The most important element in education is the creat- 
ing in the student of an intense yearning for and de- 
light 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 ob- 
ject of an Oglethorpe education is to furnish the stu- 
dent with deeper thoughts, finer emotions and nobler 
purposes to the end that he may more clearly under- 
stand, more fully enjoy and more excellently behave 
in the world. It has been the purpose of the Board 



22 Oglethorpe University 

of Directors in making their selection of members of 
the faculty to choose them from as many different 
sections of America as possible, thus providing a rep- 
representative and cosmopolitan American corps of 
Teachers.

Oglethorpe University 35 

Immediate Purpose and Scope 

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 spe- 
cialists in professional and business life and teach- 
ers 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 fprward to university 
work are invited to correspond with the President in 
order that they may prepare themselves for the ad- 
vanced courses which are to be offered. 

Adequate library and laboratory facilities are pro- 
vided. Free use is made of the city of Atlanta, in 
itself a remarkable laboratory of industrial and scien- 
tific life, whose museums, libraries, and municipal 
plants are at the disposal of our students for observa- 
tion, inspection and investigation. 

The campus consists of approximately six hundred 
and fifty acres of land, including an eighty acre lake 
which is situated in the northwestern section of the 
campus. It is located on Peachtree Road, and immed- 
iately in front of the entrance is the terminus of the 
Oglethorpe University street car line, and an attractive 
little stone station of the Southern Railway main line 
between Atlanta and Washington. The first build- 
ing to be located on the campus, the Administration 
Building, contains in the basement a dining room; on 
the ground floor, chemistry and physics lecture rooms 
and laboratories and the Bursar's office and lounging 
room for young ladies attending the college; on the 



36 Oglethorpe University 

second and third floors, the hospital and dormitories. 
Lupton Hall consists of three separate structures which, 
combined, contain the library, the President's office, 
radio transmitting and broadcasting rooms, class 
rooms, dormitories, an Assembly Hall seating approx- 
imately six hundred, equipped also as a theatre for the 
presentation of student dramas, and in the basement 
basketball court, swimming pool, lockers and showers, 
and quarters for the University Press. The Univer- 
sity Press is equipped with a Babcock optimus press, 
linotype machine and two job presses, with a number 
of type stands and other printing equipment given by 
a friend of the University. Lowry Hall houses the 
Lowry School of Banking and Commerce, and the Art 
Studios. It is largely a replica of old Corpus Christi 
College, Oxford, the alma mater of James Edward 
Oglethorpe. It contains class rooms and dormitories, 
and will stand as a perpetual memorial to the gener- 
osity of Colonel R. J. Lowry and Emma Markham Low- 
ry.

Oglethorpe University 39 

to enter. Such students may become regular only by 
absolving all entrance requirements. 

Persons under twenty years of age desiring to pur-

ination or examinations satisfactory to the Dean of the 
department in which the work is to be done. 

The minimum number of subjects permitted is 
twelve clock-hours per week. 

Standards for Georgia Colleges and 
Junior Colleges* 

The following standards have been adopted by the 
State Board of Education of Georgia. They are de- 
signed to serve two purposes: 

(a) A basis of granting charters to new or pro- 
posed higher educational institutions under the pro- 
visions of Section 14 of the Georgia Code.** 

(b) A basis for preparing an approved list of teacher- 
training institutions for the State of Georgia. 

It is not proposed that these standards should oper- 
ate to make it impossible for a worthy new enterprise 
to be begun, nor for a worthy institution now in oper- 
ation to be denied a fair opportunity for development. 

It is, therefore, agreed that: 

(a) In the case of proposed new institutions of 
higher learning, if the Board of Education is satisfied 
that such institution has a reasonable possibility of 



* These standards have been adopted by Oglethorpe Univer- 
sity and are effective as of September 23, 1931. 

** Section 14. No charter giving the right to confer degrees 
or issue diplomas shall be granted to any proposed institution 
of learning within the state of Geogia until the proper show- 
ing has been made to the State Board of Education that the pro- 
posed University, College, Normal, or Professional school shall 
give evidence of its ability to meet the standard requirements 
set up by the State Board of Education. 



40 Oglethorpe University 

meeting these standards within three years a provis- 
ional charter for three years may be granted, such 
charter to be made permanent if and when such insti- 
tution shall have met the conditions of these stand- 
ards. 

(a) In the case of institutions now in operation, the 
application of these standards shall not go into effect 
until after the expiration of three years from the date 
of the adoption of these standards. 

Standards for Colleges 

1. Definition: 

A standard college, university, or technological in- 
stitution — designated as "college" in this statement of 
standards is an institution: 

(a) Which is legally authorized to give non-profes- 
sional Bachelor's degrees; 

(b) Which is organized definitely on the basis of the 
completion of a standard secondary school cur- 
riculum ; 

(c) Which organizes its curricula in such a way that 

the early years are a continuation of, and sup- 
plement the work of the secondary school and at 
least the last two years are shaped more or less 
distinctly in the direction of special, profes- 
sional, or graduate instruction; 

(d) Which is separate and distinct, both in faculty 
and operation, from any high school. 

2. Entrance or Admission: 

A college shall demand for admission of candidates 
for degrees the satisfactory^ completion of a four year 
course (15 units from a four year high school or 
twelve units from a three year senior high school) in 



Oglethorpe University 41 

a secondary school approved by a recognized accred- 
iting agency or the equivalent of such a course, as 
shown by examination. The major portion of the sec- 
ondary school course accepted for admission should be 
definitely correlated with the curriculum to which the 
student is admitted. 

Persons over 21 years of age, who do not meet re- 
quirements for admission, may be admitted to regular 
college courses if the authorities of the college are 
satisfied that such persons can carry the courses satis- 
factorily. These shall be classified as special students 
and shall not be admitted to candidacy for bachelor's 
degrees until all entrance credits shall have been satis- 
fied. 

3. Graduation. 

A college shall require for graduation the completion 
of a minimum quantitative requirement of 120 semes- 
ter hours of credit (or the equivalent in term hours, 
quarter hours, points, majors, or courses) with fur- 
ther qualitative requirements adapted by each insti- 
tution to its conditions. 

A semester hour is defined as a credit for work in a 
class which meets for at least one sixty-minute period 
(including ten minutes for change of classes) weekly 
for lecture, recitation, or test for a semester of 
eighteen weeks (including not over two weeks for all 
holidays and vacations.) Two hours of laboratory 
work shall count as the equivalent of one hour of 
lecture, recitation, or test. 

4. Degrees: 

Small institutions should confine themselves to one 
or two baccalaureate degrees. When more than one 
baccalaureate degree is offered, all shall be equal in 
requirements for admission and graduation. Institu- 



42 Oglethorpe University 

tions of limited resources and inadequate facilities for 
graduate work should confine themselves to strictly 
undergraduate courses. 

5. Permanent Records: 

A system of permanent records showing clearly all 
credits (including entrance records) of each student 
shall be carefully kept. The original credentials filed 
from other institutions shall be retained. As far as 
possible, records of graduates should be kept. 

6. Size of Faculty and Number of Departments: 

A college of arts and sciences of approximately 100 
students should maintain at least eight separate de- 
partments with at least one professor in each devoting 
his whole time to that department. The size of the 
faculty should bear a definite relation to the type of 
the institution, the number of students, and the number 
of courses offered. With the growth of the student body, 
the number of full-time teachers should be correspond- 
ingly increased. The development of varied curricula 
should involve the addition of other heads of depart- 
ments. 

7. Training of Faculty: 

Faculty members of professional rank shall have not 
less than one full year of graduate work, majoring in 
the subject taught, in addition to a bachelor's degree 
from a fully accredited college, and should have two 
years of training in an approved graduate school. 

The training of the head of each department shall 
be that represented by two full years of graduate work 
or its equivalent. 

8. Faculty Load: 

The number of hours of class room work given by 



Oglethorpe University 43 

each teacher will vary in different departments. To 
determine this, the amount of preparation required for 
the class and the amount of time needed for study to 
keep abreast of the subject, together with the number 
of students, must be taken into account. Teaching 
schedules, including classes for part-time students, ex- 
ceeding 18 recitation hours or their equivalent per 
week per instructor, will be interpreted as endanger- 
ing educational efficiency. Sixteen hours is the recom- 
mended maximum load. 

9. Size of Classes : 

Classes (exclusive of lectures) of more than thirty 
students should be interpreted as endangering educa- 
tional efficiency. 

10. Financial Support : 

The minimum annual operating income for an ac- 
credited college, exclusive of payment of interest, an- 
nuities, etc., should be $30,000, of which not less than 
$15,000 should be derived from stable sources, other 
than students, such as permanent endowment, public 
funds or church support. Increiase in faculty, stu- 
dent body and scope of instruction should be accom- 
panied by a corresponding increase of income from 
such stable sources. The financial status of each col- 
lege should be judged in relation to its educational 
program. 

A college that does not have such support from en- 
dowment, church, state or public sources must show, 
for a period of three consecutive years immediately 
preceding its application for accrediting, that its 
charges and expenditures are such as to show a min- 
imum average annual net surplus of not less that 
$15,000 from non-educational services, such as board, 



44 Oglethorpe Unive21sity 

room rents, etc., which may be used to supplement 
tuition fees. 

11. Library: 

A college should have a live, well-distributed, ade- 
quately housed library of at least 8,000 volumes, ex- 
clusive of public documents, bearing specifically upon 
the subjects taught, administered by a full-time pro- 
fessionally trained librarian, and with a definite an- 
nual appropriation for the purchase of new books. 

12. Laboratories: 

The laboratory equipment shall be adequate for all 
the experiments called for by the courses offered in 
the sciences, and these facilities shall be kept up by 
means of an annual appropriation in keeping with the 
curriculum. 

13. General Equipment and Buildings: 

The location and construction of the buildings, the 
lighting, heating and ventilation of the rooms, the 
nature of the laboratories, corridors, closets, water 
supply, school furniture, apparatus, and methods of 
cleaning shall be such as to insure hygienic conditions 
for both students and teachers. 

14. Proportion of Students Candidates for Degrees: 

No institution shall be admitted to the accredited 
list, or continued more than one year on such list, un- 
less it has a college registration of at least 100 regular 
students. A notably small proportion of college stu- 
dents registered in the third and fourth years will 
constitute ground for dropping an institution from the 
accredited list. 

At least 75 per cent of the students in a college 



Oglethorpe University 45 

should be pursuing courses leading to baccalaureate 
degrees; provided, however, that this shall not apply 
to students enrolled in extension, correspondence or 
other similar departments, not in regular course for 
a degree, in an institution which otherwise meets these 
standards. 

15. Character of the Curriculum: 

The character of the curriculum, the standards for 
regular degrees, the conservatism in granting honor- 
ary degrees, provision in the curriculum for breadth 
of study and for concentration, soundness of scholar- 
ship, the practice of scientific spirit including freedom 
of investigation and teaching, loyalty to facts, and en- 
couragement of efficiency, initiative and originality in 
investigation and teaching, the tone of the institution, 
including the existence and culture of good morals and 
ideals, and satisfaction and enthusiasm among stu- 
dents and staff shall be factors in determining its 
standing. 

16. Extra-Curricular Activites: 

The proper administration of athletics, student pub- 
lications, student organizations, and all extra-curricu- 
lar activities, is one of the fundamental tests of a 
standard college and, therefore, should be considered 
in classification. 

17. Professional and Technical Departments: 

When the institution has, in addition to the college 
of arts and sciences, professional or technical depart- 
ments, the colleges of arts and sciences shall not be ac- 
cepted for the approved list of the State Department 
of Education unless the professional or technical de- 
partments are of approved grade, national standards 
being used when available. 



46 Oglethorpe University 

18. Inspection and Reports: 

Filing of Blank — No institution shall be placed on 
the approved list unless a regular information blank 
has been filed with the State Department of Education. 
The blank shall be filed again for each of the three 
years after the college has been approved, and trien- 
nially thereafter, but the Department may for due 
cause call upon any member to file a new report at any 
time. Failure to file the blank as required shall be 
cause for dropping an institution. 

Inspection — No college will be placed on the aj)- 
proved list until it has been inspected and reported 
upon by the agent or agents regularly appointed by the 
State Department of Education. All colleges accred- 
ited by the Department shall be open to inspection at 
any time. 

Oglethorpe University was the first educational in- 
stitution in Georgia to be inspected and fully accredited 
by the State Board of Education after the adoption of 
the above Standards, following the approval of them by 
all the educational institutions in the commonwealth. 



Oglethorpe University 47 



Standards for Junior Colleges 

(This is printed for the benefit of prospective students who 
expect to present credits from schools of junior college rank.) 

1. Definition 

The junior college, in its present development, comprises 
different forms of organization. First, a two-year institution 
embracing two years of collegiate work in advance of the com« 
pletion of an accredited secondary school course. The two-year 
curricula of this type shall be equivalent in prerequisites, 
methods, and thoroughness to those offered in the first two 
years of an accredited four-year college. Second, an insti- 
tution embracing two years of standard collegiate work as de- 
fined above integrated with one or two continuous years of 
fully accredited high-school work administered as a single unit. 

2. Entrance or Admission 

A junior college shall demand for admission to the first col- 
legiate class the satisfactory completion of a four year course 
(15 units from a four year high school or twelve units from 
a three year senior high school) in a secondary school approved 
by a recognized accrediting agency or the equivalent of such a 
course shown by examination. The major portion of the sec- 
ondary school course accepted for admission should be definitely 
correlated with the curriculum to which the student is admitted. 

For entrance to terminal or finishing courses in the two-year 
junior college or the upper division of the four-year junior 
college the equivalent of fifteen units should be required. This 
equivalent may be demonstrated by entrance examinations, 
ability tests, or by the proven ability of the student to profit 
by the instruction offered. 

3. Graduation. 

A junior college shall require for graduation the completion 
of a minimum quantitative requirement of 60 semester hours 
of credit (or the equivalent in term hours, quarter hours, points, 
majors, or courses) with further qualitative requirements adapt- 
ed by each institution to its conditions. 

A semester hour is defined as a credit given for work in a 
class which meets for at least one sixty-minute period (in- 
cluding ten minutes for change of classes) weekly for lecture, 
recitation, or test for a semester of eighteen weeks (including 
not over two weeks for all holidays and vacations) . Two hours 
of laboratory work should count as the equivalent of one hour 
of lecture, recitation, or test. 

4. Degrees. 

No junior college shall grant desrees. 



48 Oglethorpe University 



5. Permanent Records. 

A system of permanent records showing clearly all credits 
(including entrance records) of each student shall be carefully 
kept. The original credentials filed from other institutions 
shall be retained. As far as possible, records of graduates 
should be kept. 

6. Size of Faculty and Number of Departments. 

The junior college shall offer instruction in at least five sep- 
arate departments. There shall not be fewer than five teach- 
ers employed specifically for instruction in the upper level of 
the junior college, giving the major portion of their time to 
such instruction. 

7. Training of Faculty. 

The training of members of the faculty shall include at 
least one year of graduate study majoring in the subject to be 
taught, together with evidence of successful experience of ef- 
ficiency in teaching. 

8. Faculty Load. 

The number of hours of class room work given by each teach- 
er will vary in diff'erent departments. To determine this, the 
amount of preparation required for the class and the amount 
of time needed for study to keep abreast of the subject, together 
with the number of students, must be taken into account. 
Teaching schedules including classes of part-time students, ex- 
ceeding 18 recitation hours or their equivalent per week per 
instructor, will be interpreted as endangering educational ef- 
ficiency. Sixteen hours is the recommended maximum load. 
When a teacher devotes part-time to high school instruction 
and part-time to college instruction his load shall be computed 
on the basis of one high school unit for three year hours. 

9. Size of Classes. 

Classes (exclusive of lectures) of more than thirty students 
should be interpreted as endangering educational efficiency. 

10. Financial Support. 

The minimum annual operating income for an accredited 
junior college, exclusive of payment of interest, annuities, etc., 
should be $20,000 of which not less than $10,000 should be de- 
rived from stable sources, other than students, such as per- 
manent endowment, public funds, or church support. Increase 
in faculty, student body, and scope of instruction should be ac- 
companied by a corresponding increase of income from such 
stable sources. The financial status of each junior college 
should be judged in relation to its educational program. 



Ogletthorpb University 49 



A junior college that does not have such support from en- 
dowment, church, state, or public sources must show, for a 
period of three or more consecutive years immediately pre- 
ceding its application for accrediting, that its charges and 
expenditures are such as show a minimum average annual 
net surplus of not less than $10,000 from non-educational ser- 
vices, such as board, room rents, etc., which may be used to 
supplement tuition fees. 

11. Library. 

A junior college should have a live, well-distributed, ade- 
quately housed library of at least 3,000 volumes, exclusive of 
public documents, bearing specifically upon the subjects taught, 
administered by a full-time professionally trained librarian, 
and with a definite annual appropriation for the purchase of 
new books. 

12. Laboratories. 

The laboratory equipment shall be adequate for all the ex- 
periments called for by the courses offered in the sciences, and 
these facilities shall be kept up by means of an annual appro- 
priation in keeping with the curriculum. 

13. General Equipment and Buildings. 

The location and construction of the buildings, the lighting, 
heating, and ventilation of the rooms, the nature of the labor- 
atories, corridors, closets, water supply, school furniture, ap- 
paratus, and methods of cleaning shall be such as to insure 
hygienic conditions for both students and teachers. 

14. Number of Students. 

No institution shall be admitted to the accredited list, or con- 
tinued more than one year on such list, unless it has a regular 
college registration of at least fifty students. A notably small 
proportion of students registered in the final year, continued 
over a period of several years, will constitute ground for drop- 
ping an institution from the accredited list. 

15. Character of the Curriculum. 

The character of the curriculum, the standard for regular 
degrees, the conservatism in granting honorary degrees, pro- 
vision in the curriculum for breadth of study and for concen- 
tration, soundness of scholarship, the practice of scientific spirit 
including freedom of investigation and teaching, loyalty to 
facts, and encouragement of efficiency, initiative and originality 
in investigation and teaching, the tone of the institution, in- 
cluding the existence and culture of good morals and ideals, 
and satisfaction and enthusiasm among students and staff shall 
be factors in determining its standards.

16. Extra-Curricular Activities. 

The proper administration of athletics, student publications, 
student organizations, and all extra-curricular activities is one 
of the fundamental tests of a standard college, and therefore, 
should be considered in classification. 

17. Professional and Technical Departments. 

When the institution has, in addition to the college of arts 
and sciences, professional, or technical departments, the junior 
college shall not be accepted for the approved lists of the State 
Department of Education unless the professional or technical 
departments are of approved grade, national standards being 
used when available. 

18. Inspection and Reports. 

Filing of Blank — No institution shall be placed on the ap- 
proved list unless a regular information blank has been filed 
with the State Department of Education. The blank shall be 
filed again for each of the three years after the college has been 
approved, and triennially thereafter, but the Department may 
for due cause call upon any member to file a new report at any 
time. Failure to file the blank as required shall be cause for 
dropping an institution. 

Inspection — No college will be placed on the approved list 
until it has been inspected and reported upon by the agent or 
agents regularly appointed by the State Department of Ed- 
ucation. All colleges accredited by the Department shall be 
open to inspection at any time. 

Courses of Instruction and 
Requirements For Degrees 

In the session of 1935-36 Oglethorpe University will 
offer courses in the undergraduate classes of nine 
schools leading to the customary academic degrees. 
The degree of Bachelor of Arts (A.B.) in Liberal 
Arts will be conferred upon those students satisfactor- 
ily completing a four years' course as outlined below, 
based largely on the study of the languages. 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 and Journ- 



Oglethorpe University 61 

alism will be given to those students who complete a 
course includ|ing work in languages, literature and 
journalism. The degree of Bachelor of Arts in Com- 
merce will be conferred upon those students who satis- 
factorily complete a full four years' course in studies 
relating particularly to business administration. The 
degree of Bachelor of Arts in Education will be confer- 
red upon those students who complete the studies in 
the School of Education. The Degree of Bachelor 
of Arts in Secretarial Preparation will be conferred 
upon those students who complete the studies in that 
School. 

The degree of Bachelor of Arts in the Fine Arts will 
be given to those students who complete the require- 
ments in the School of Fine Arts. A diploma, but not a 
degree, is given to students completing a two-year 
course in Art. 

The degree of Bachelor of Arts in Physical Edu- 
cation will be given to those students specializing in 
that department; and the degree of Bachelor of Arts 
in Radio Broadcasting to students receiving special 
training as engineers, program directors and station 
managers. 

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

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



52 Oglethorpe UNiviaisiTY 

aration; those who expect to teach, the A.B. course 
in Education. 

While each of these courses is so shaped as to in- 
fluence the student towards a certain end, colored 
largely by the type of studies, yet each course will 
be found to include such subjects of general culture 
as are necessary to the making of a life as distin- 
guished from a living. 

Graduates of standard normal schools or junior col- 
leges are admitted to the junior class. 

Examinations, Credits, Graduation 

Effective with the class entering September, 1931, 
the new Oglethorpe plan of credits and examinations 
went into effect. The traditional four year course of 
study is now divided into two groups. The first two 
years of work are designated as the College Division, 
and the remaining two years of work as the Uni- 
versity Division. The teaching remains as heretofore 
with similar schedules, with the customary lectures, 
laboratory work, quizzes and examinations. But the 
marks attained at the close of the term are not entered 
as credits for graduation, — only as an indication to the 
student and the instructor of the character of the work 
being done. When the student appears to have satis- 
factorily completed two years of work he will be rec- 
ommended by the Dean of his department to the Fac- 
ulty for a final, comprehensive examination, both writ- 
ten and oral, on all subjects taken. Upon the satisfac- 
tory completion of this test he will receive the title of 
Associate in Arts and a certificate stating that he has 
completed the College Division of studies and may be 
admitted to the University Divison. The same plan will 
be followed in the University Division. Upon completion 



Oglk-horpb Unitersity 53 

of a satisfactory comprehensive examination the degree 
and diploma will be conferred. It is believed that the 
new system will incite the student to select and coordin- 
ate his course of study as a whole, and to master it. The 
inferior student will stand small chance of passing the 
comprehensive examinations. In fact, he will not even 
be recommended by his Dean for the examination, but 
will be asked to do additional and better work to qual- 
ify himself for graduation. Under the new plan cheat- 
ing, cramming, and coasting will be less of a tempta- 
tion, as ill gotten marks will avail nothing on the final 
comprehensive examination. The new plan will be an 
incentive to mastery and excellence. 

All transfer credits in order to be acceptable to 
Oglethorpe University must come from standard insti- 
tutions of at least junior college or normal grade. 

In determining the rating of both high schools and 
colleges for any given year the University is governed 
by the rulings of the Department of Education of the 
State of Georgia. 

Transfer credits are allowed only for courses which 
parallel those given at Oglethorpe. 

Definite transcripts are required for admission both 
to the graduate and under-graduate divisions. 

The Atlanta School System has asked that teachers 
take work only Friday and Saturday, not definitely 
limiting the amount of credit. Fifteen to eighteen col- 
lege hours is considered a reasonable amount of work 
for a pupil giving all his time to instruction. There- 
fore, as teachers are supposed to give at least half of 
their time to their teaching and to its preparation, 
we do not feel that any teacher in service should try 
to carry more than seven and a half or nine college 
hours' work a year as a maximum, not including sum- 
mer school work. When it is understood that this 



54 Oglethorpe University 

means seven and a half to nine hours of class room 
work a week, not to mention the preparation involved, 
it will be seen that this is reasonable. 

All candidates for all degrees are required, in ad- 
dition to passing such examinations, quizzes, tests, 
etc., as may be prescribed by the professors in charge 
of the courses taken, to stand a final, comprehensive 
written examination, covering the last two years of 
their course. If and when these examinations have 
been successfully passed the candidate is required to 
stand an oral examination of the same general com- 
prehensive nature before a committee of the faculty 
and in the case of candidates for the Master's degree, 
to submit a thesis of a nature satisfactory to a special 
committee of the Faculty, appointed to review same. 



University Expenses 

Tuition 

Effective for all students entering Oglethorpe on and 
after September 1931, the tuition fees charged by the 
University are the same in all departments and in all 
schools, and are based upon the actual amount of in- 
struction given to the student as measured by the time 
devoted thereto by the instructors. The figure set is 
$5.00 per term for each clock hour of instruction 
per week The courses offered at the University 
usually run two, three, or four clock hours per week. 
The charge per term (approximately three months) 
for each one hour per week course (usually called a 
minor) is $5.00. The charge per term for each two 
hour per week course is $10.00. The charge for each 
three hour per week course for one term is $15.00. The

charge per term for each four hour per week course 
is $20.00, and the charge per week term for each seven 
hour per week course is $35.00 ; other courses in exact 
proportion. The charges for work done in the laborator- 
ies, art departments, etc., are one-half of above rates. 
Inasmuch as a complete college and university course 
of four years, more or less, calls for 66 year hours of 
instruction, equal to 66 minors, the total charge for the 
four years, more or less, of instruction, including tu- 
ition, laboratory and other college fees, is approximate- 
ly $247.50 per year. The tuition charge includes tick- 
ets to all athletic games played on the campus and to 
the annual performance of the Oglethorpe Players 
Club. There are no other fees. All tuition charges are 
payable quarterly in advance and no rebates are given. 

Board and Room Rent 

The dormitory facilities of Oglethorpe University 
are among the safest and most comfortable of those of 
cognate institutions in the South. All permanent build- 
ings of the University will be like those now finished, 
which are believed to be absolutely fireproof, being con- 
structed of steel, concrete, and granite with partitions 
of brick and hollow tile. 

The rates named below are based upon two grades 
of rooms. The first of these comprises the entire third 
floor of the Administration building, the third floor 
of Lupton Hall, and the second and third floors of 
Lowry Hall, divided into individual rooms, with gen- 
eral toilet and bath on the same floor. Each room con- 
tains a lavatory furnishing hot and cold water. The 
second grade is that of the second floor of the Admin- 
istration building, and is composed of suites of rooms, 
each suite containing a bedroom, bath, and study. The 



Oglhthorpb Univkrsity 57 

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 dormitories contains ample closet 
space. The rooms are large, airy, safe and comfort- 
able. 

The furniture is of substantial quality and is approx- 
imately the same for all rooms, including chiffonier, 
study-table, chairs, single beds, springs and mattresses. 
Room linen, pillows and bed clothing are furnished by 
the student. Applications for rooms should be filed as 
early as possible. For reservation of room inclose $5.00 
reservation fee (non-returnable) to be credited on first 
payment for room rent. 

All students rooming in the dormitories are required 
also to board at the college cafeteria and any student 
not rooming on the college campus may take his or 
her meals at the cafeteria. Students employed by the 
University must board and room on the campus. 

The charge for board and room rent per term is as 
follows : 

The Administration Building, third floor, Lupton 
Hall, third floor, and Lowry Hall, second and third 
floors (two or more to the room) $108.50. Administra- 
tion Building, second floor $128.50 per term (two or 
more to the room) . The charge for board only is $82.50 
per term minimum, subject to the customary discounts. 
This is furnished in the form of meal tickets in amount 
of $82.50 per term. Additional tickets may be pur- 
chased by the student, if desired. No rebate is given 
on unused meal tickets and no transfer of use of meal 
tickets from one term to another or from one student 



58 Oglethorpe University 

to another is allowed. All charges are payable in ad- 
vance by the term, of approximately ten weeks as per 
college calendar, and no rebate is allowed for any rea- 
son. The particular attention of the students is called 
to the fact that the issuance of these meal tickets is 
for their convenience, solely that they are good only 
for meals taken during the term for which they are 
issued and that the charge for them is $82.50 per term 
and is not subject to rebate of any kind on account of 
the failure of students to use the tickets which are 
furnished them. 

Expenses: The University reserves the right to raise 
or lower any and all charges, to discontinue any and 
all discounts and scholarships, to cancel any and all 
contracts for self-help work and to lower or raise cafe- 
teria prices at will, as conditions may require. 

All charges are based upon and payable by the term, 
in advance, not by the month or year. The lengths of 
terms are specified in the college calendar. When pay- 
ments are permitted under special conditions the obli- 
gation of the student to meet deferred payments is 
not thereby impaired. Such special privileges of pay- 
ment will be withdrawn in all cases where students 
fail to make same without previous billing or notice. 
A penalty of $5.00 is assessed on all students attending 
classes without having settled their account in advance 
and $1.00 per day of absence (maximum five dollars) 
for delayed registration for the Winter and Spring 
terms. If a student attends a single class, occupies a 
dormitory room for a single night or purchases a cafe- 
teria ticket, the contract for that term is thus made 
binding and no rebate of any kind will be allowed on 
board (cafeteria meal tickets), room rent, tuition or 
college fees for that term. 



Oglethorpe University 59 

A special "depression cash discount" of twenty-five 
per cent will be granted to those students rooming on 
the campus, who hold no self-help position and re- 
ceive no aid from University loans or scholarship 
funds. The University reserves the right to lower or 
raise any and all charges if, when and as economic 
conditions may require. 

The University discourages the occupation of one 
room by more than two students and no reduction in 
room rent is permitted on that account except in the 
case of very large rooms furnished barracks style. 

The University cafeteria furnishes a liberal assort- 
ment of food at moderate prices, varying with the At- 
lanta market. The cost is further reduced by liberal 
discounts, conditions of obtaining which will be fur- 
nished upon application to the cashier or bursar. 

Student Activities Fee 

The expenses at Oglethorpe University are made as 
low as the quality of the instruction, of rooming ac- 
commodations and of table fare will permit. No fees 
such as matriculation, library, hospital, contingent, 
athletic, etc. are charged. The only exception to this 
rule is a fee of $7.50 per term (on which no discount 
is allowed to anyone) which is used to defray various 
expenses connected with student activities such as: 
equipment and expenses of intra-mural games and 
teams, and of inter-collegiate football, baseball, and 
basketball teams; expenses of debating teams; ex- 
penses of dramatic club ; expenses of the glee club, band 
and orchestra ; and a subscription to the Stormy Petrel 
and Yamacraw, if and when published by the Univer- 
sity Press. This fee also provides each student with 



60 Oglethorpb Unitbrsity 

a ticket to all inter-collegiate games played by Ogle- 
thorpe teams in Atlanta and provides for his partici- 
pation without other charge in such intra-mural sports 
as the program offers. 

Caution Deposit 

A deposit of $5.00 is required of all boarding students 
upon registration, which will be refunded at the close of 
the session in the following June, less a proportionate 
amount deducted for such damages to buildings and 
equipment and such losses or removal of equipment as, 
in the opinion of the officers of the college, has been 
done by the students. No discount is allowed, either 
on the caution deposit or the athletic fee. 

Infirmary 

The University maintains at all times an excellent 
infirmary, 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 prevented. There is a University 
physician who can be secured on short notice when his 
services are needed. Students whose medical needs 
exceed the facilities of the Infirmary find every re- 
quirement satisfied by the hospitals of the city. 

The University makes no charge to the students 
for infirmary service, which includes also the attend- 
ance of the college physician in the infirmary. In 
case of special illness requiring operations or the ser- 
vices of specialists, while the University frequently 
is able to secure reduced rates for students, yet we 
assume no responsibility beyond such services as our 
college physician and college infirmary are able to ren- 
der. 



Oglethorpe University 61 

Directions to New Students 

students coming to Oglethorpe University from a 
distance should remember that Oglethorpe University 
has its own station 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 spec- 
ial 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. 

Summer Session 

The summer term of Oglethorpe University meets 
the requirements for regular students who desire to 
speed up their courses or make up work that is un- 
satisfactory. It also serves the large number of teach- 
ers working toward degrees. 

All summer courses are credited toward the attain- 
ment of a degree, and afford a convenient way to push 
up by one year the date of graduation. The down town 
students can do more than the work usually done in 
the extension courses during the year. It can be so 
planned that a teacher in or near Atlanta can in twelve 
calendar months finish the regular year of work. 

Graduate School 

It is the purpose of Oglethorpe University to de- 
velop a thoroughly excellent Graduate School, offering 
courses in all departments leading to the Master's de- 



62 Oglethorpe University 

gree. 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 degree in certain 
departments will be found outlined elsewhere in this 
catalogue, under the appropriate department heading, 
in the 500's. This degree is based upon that of Bache- 
lor of Arts of Oglethorpe University or of some other 
approved institution. The candidate must have an ag- 
gregate of fifteen hours of graduate work, with at least 
two Professors; all this work must be done with Ogle- 
thorpe. In addition a thesis is required. But the de- 
gree is not guaranteed at the end of a fixed period of 
time. A certain amount of work must be accomp- 
lished, and the quality of it must be such as to satisfy 
the Professors concerned and the whole Faculty. 

In this connection, the prospective student will be 
interested in learning that all Professors chosen as 
the heads of departments in Oglethorpe University 
must have obtained the highest academic degree offer- 
ed in that department. This fact is mentioned in or- 
der 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 per- 
sonal character. 

Students entering the Graduate School in selecting 
their major courses must present not less than two 
years (six year hours) of under-graduate work in the 
same or closely related subjects evidenced by official 
transcripts from standard institutions recognized as 
such by the Department of Education of the State of 
Georgia. In addition to this the student must have 
had one year (three year hours) of work in any sub- 
ject selected as a minor. 



Oglethorpe University 63 

A class that meets once a week during the session 
of nine months, carries a credit of one hour (one year 
hour.) A class that meets three times a week (three 
clock hours) during a term carries a credit of one hour 
(one term hour). 

A minimum of fifteen college hours or one year of 
work and a minimum of one year (nine months) of resi- 
dence is required for the Master's degree. A minimum 
of one year's or approximately nine months' residence 
is required also for the Bachelor's degree. Of the 
fifteen hours required for the Master's degree not less 
than nine shall be devoted to the major subject and 
the other six or more selected by the advice and coun- 
sel of the Dean of the Department in which the student 
is working. In addition a satisfactory thesis must be 
presented to the Faculty Committee upon a subject 
approved by them and filed with the Committee not less 
than ten days before the date of graduation. 

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

School of Liberal Arts 

Leading to the degree of Bachelor of Arts (A.B.) 
in the Liberal Arts 

G. F. NicoLAssEN, Dean 

This course of study is intended to encourage es- 
pecially the study of languages, ancient and mod- 
ern. No Latin is required for entrance. 

A student must take one language as a major and 
two or three languages as minors. The major lan- 
guage shall be carried through four years. If two 
minors are taken, each must be pursued for two years. 

If three minors are taken, one must be studied for 
two years, and each of the others for one year. 

If Latin be chosen as the major, Greek must be 
taken as one of the minors. If Greek be taken as the 
major, Latin shall be one of the minors. 

A student must have at least one year of German 
and one year of French, either in High School or in 
College. 

Any subject above enumerated that has been 
studied in High School shall be replaced by some elec- 
tive. 

Latin 

Latin 111-2-3. For entrance into this class the stu- 
dent is expected to have had at least three years of 
high school Latin. He must be able to translate Eng- 
lish into Latin with some facility. LivJ^ Cicero de 
Senectute and Sallust's Catiline will be studied in this 
year. A brief history of Rome will also be included. 
Prose composition, both oral and written, will be car- 



66 Oglethorpe University 

ied on throughout the year. Elective. Three hours. 

Latin 211-2-3. The studies of this class will be in 
Cicero's Letters, Horace and Plautus. A course in 
Latin Literature will also be given. Twice a week 
throughout the year. Elective. Two hours. 

Latin 311-2-3. This class will begin with Terence, 
and then take up Tacitus and Juvenal. Ancient Ro- 
man life will be considered in this part of the course. 
Twice a week throughout the year. Elective. Two 
hours. 

Extension Classes 

On Saturdays classes will be arranged for students 
in the Extension Department. A beginners' class will 
meet for two hours. The work will be adapted both for 
those who have never studied Latin and for those who 
wish to review the first year's work. Second year 
Latin will be studied in another class, also meeting for 
two hours. 

Greek 

Greek 111-2-3. Preparatory. This class is designed not 
merely for those who have no previous knowledge 
of the language, but also for those whose preparation 
is inadequate. The most important 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: White's First Greek Book, Xenophon's 
Anabasis (Goodwin and White). Three times a week 
throughout the year. Elective. Three hours. 

Greek 211-2-3. The preparation for entrance into 
this class is not so m^uch a matter of time as of 
thoroughness. The student is expected to know the 
ordinary Attic inflections and syntax, to have read 



Oglethorpe University 67 

about one book of the Anabasis, and to have had con- 
siderable practice in translating English into Greek. 
The use of accents is required. 

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

Written translations of English into Greek are re- 
quired 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 trans- 
lating English into Greek. Elective. Two hours. 

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

Greek 311-2-3. In the first term Demosthenes will 
be read; in the second, Herodotus; in the third. Homer. 
The subject of Phonetics is presented and illustrated 
by chart and model of the larynx showing the position 
of the vocal organs. Elective. Two hours. 

Graduate Courses in Latin and Greek 

511-2-3. Those who are thinking of taking gradu- 
ate 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 require- 
ments for entrance into these courses are given else- 
where in this catalogue, under the head of Graduate 
School. 

In Latin the following course will be offered for the 
A.M. degree in the session of 1935-36: Vergil's com- 
plete works; Vergil in the Middle Ages; History of 
Classical Scholarship; Textual Criticism. 



68 Oglethorpe University 

Mythology and Etymology 

The first two terms will be devoted to the study of

School of Literature and Journalism 

James E. Routh, Dean 

Leading to the degree of bachelor of arts in general 
literary culture, professional, literary and newspaper 
practice, and preparation for the study of law in law 
schools that require literary prerequisites. No Latin 
is required for entrance. Literary students desire an 
increased appreciation of literature, but they also wish 
the command of good usable English for everyday use. 
For either, good habits in the use of language are es- 
sential, and are a prime consideration in the depart- 
ment. 

The work in English in the college division is de- 
signed to give students a mastery of their own tongue 
for speaking and writing, and to familiarize them with 
the best English literature. The elective courses, 
given mainly for students in the university division, 
provide intensive study in special fields. The summer 
courses, though not identical with the winter courses, 
are planned along similar lines. This will enable a 
student to complete a portion of his requirements for 
a degree in the summer. 

For graduate students work is offered leading to the 
degree of A.M. See Page 76.

Pre-Professional Courses 

students who are contemplating the profession of 
law or dentistry and who do not desire to study for an 
academic degree, are allowed to take such work as will 
prepare them for entrance into professional schools. In 
addition to the required high school units for college 
entrance, professional students must complete one or 
more years of college work, according to the require- 
ments of the institution that they are planning to 
enter. The attention of the prospective student, how- 
ever, should be 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 requirements for entrance. We strongly advise 
our students of medicine to have their college diploma 
safely in hand before they begin their professional 
studies. The course which we recommend for them is 
that leading to the Bachelor of Arts in Science, outlined 
on page 89. 

For Pre-Dental Course, see the foregoing paragraph.

Mark Burrows, Dean 

The aim of all instruction in the Lowry School of 
Banking and Commerce is to furnish the general basis 
of business facts, standards and theory which the be- 
ginner finds it difficult or impossible to acquire in his

covering fully the practical details and routine and the 
special technique of the particular business or industry 
which he will enter. 

The Lowry School offers two regular courses of 
study, the General Business Course and the Account- 
ing course. The aim is to concentrate upon the fun- 
damentals of business, and with this in view every stu- 
dent is required to obtain a thorough knowledge of the 
basic subjects including accounting, finance, econom- 
ics, and business law.

endeavor to give the graduate of the University a 
course that will co-ordinate the knowledge they have 
obtained of such subjects as Biology, Geology, Pale- 
ontology, etc., with their work in Bible, Ethics and 
Philosophy, the President of the University will meet 
the Senior Class one hour per week, Thursday at 11:30, 
in a seminar covering a story of human life following 
the broad outlines of Astrononmy, Geology, Paleontol- 
ogy, Embryology, Anthropology and Archaeology. The 
course closes with a study of the first ten chapters of 
Genesis in relation to modern discoveries. It is es- 
pecially designed to give the graduates of Oglethorpe 
University a conception of the harmony between re- 
ligion and modern science and is required of all fourth 
year students. It is believed that this work of co-ordi- 
nation of modern science with religion can best be done 



106 Oglethorpe University 

in the fourth year class, to the end that in harmonizing 
the truths learned their faith may not be unsettled. 
One hour. 

The History and Appreciation of Music 311-2-3. An 

inquiry into the evolution of music from the earliest 
times to the present. The plan contemplated is a com- 
bination of history, musical form, and appreciation. 
While the historical phase is interesting, and an un- 
derstanding of musical form appeals to the intellectual 
and scientific, the main object is to cultivate increased 
appreciation of its beauty and of its power as an in- 
strument of expression. The course will introduce 
simple and primitive forms with explanations and il- 
lustrations. This will be followed in proper sequence 
by the folk songs, the dance form, the suite, grand 
opera, oratorio, and the symphony. Attention will be 
given to instrumentation and the development of the 
modern orchestra. Illustrative material will be sup- 
plied by the living voice, the piano, and the recently 
perfected forms of electrical recording. The course 
will be semi-laboratory in its presentation. Those 
taking the course for college credit may present it as 
a three hour elective in the School of Education. Re- 
quired in the School of Radio Broadcasting.

School of Physical Education 

Leading to the Degree of Bachelor of Arts (A.B.) in 
Physical Education 

Donald Harper Overton, Dean 

Its purpose is two-fold: To train, protect and de- 
velop the bodies of all the students of the University, 
and to offer a special training, equipping them for 
positions as Physical Directors in other schools, col- 
leges and universities and in Y. M. C. A.'s and the 
Army. 

For the special preparation of students for positions 
as physical directors and coaches in high schools, prep 
schools and universities, a regular curriculum has been 
arranged offering instruction in certain subjects, the 
completion of which will lead to a degree of Bachelor 
of Arts in Physical Education. 

Department of Science 

The work of this Department is designed especially 
for students of Physical Education. The courses are 
planned to awaken in the student an interest that shall 
be more compelling than that of a prescribed course. 
To this end instruction is based in so far as possible on 
direct observations made in demonstrations. Each 
organ is studied with reference to its development, 
anatomy and physiology. Bones, muscles, viscera, etc., 
have meaning when introduced in the light of their 
development. The facts observed are discussed in 
lectures and quizzes. Free use is made of charts, models, 
anatomical preparations and microscopic slides. Week- 
ly quizzes are supplemented by written tests given upon 



114 Oglethorpe University 

the completion of some general division of the subject. 

Biology 131-2-3. Physiology and Personal Hygiene. 
Three lectures weekly throughout the year. Section A 
Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 8 :30 A. M. Section 
B Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday at 9:30 A. M. 

An introductory course not requiring previous 
knowledge of the subject. 

Biology 231-2-3. P. E. Anatomy. Prerequisite: Biol- 
ogy 131. Three lectures weekly throughout the year. 
Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 11:30 A. M.

Biology 431-2-3. Physical Diagnosis. Prerequisite 
Biology 331-2-3. Three lectures weekly throughout the 
year, Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 10:30 A. M. 

Intramural Athletics 

In order to extend the benefits of organized ath- 
letic competition to all students of Oglethorpe Uni- 
versity, instead of only to those who take part in 
intercollegiate competition, the Department of Physi- 
cial Education sponsors the program of Intramural 
Athletics. 

The purpose of the intramural department is to en- 
courage every student to participate in some or all 
intramural sports, to provide facilites for this par- 
ticipation, to organize and promote intramuural com- 
petition, and to stand for fair play and true sports- 
manship. 

This program includes competitive sports for every 
student on the campus. Students thus benefit from 
the wholesome effect of organized sports, and from the 
physical development whch naturally follows. 



Oglethorpe University

i 



Intramural competitors, strangers at first but later 
friends, learn courage, determination, and self control. 
Qualities of loyalty, self-sacrifice and team play are 
also thoroughly ingrained in each individual through 
this program. 

The fact that the intramural program provides con- 
tinuous competition in some sport throughout the 
school year assures each participating student of phys- 
ical exercise every day of the school year.

Scholarships for Athletics 

We are constantly receiving inquiries from pros- 
pective students concerning "athletic scholarships." 
The only scholarships offered by the University are 
given as rewards for exceptional high school and col- 
lege attainment. The only way in which a football or 
baseball player can receive aid at Olgethorpe is in the 
same way that other students are aided, by such self- 
help jobs as it may be possible for them to fill con- 
sistent with their week-end absences. These positions 
pay from twenty to forty cents per hour and if oc- 
cupied industriously and efficiently will cover the stu- 
dent's college expenses in large part. The university 
must necessarily assign self-help students taking part 
in inter-collegiate athletics to such self-help positions 
as their engagements may permit them to hold. 

Our endeavor and policy is to treat all students ex- 
actly alike, neither favoring nor discriminating against 
a boy who happens to be a fine football player. 

Rules for Eligibility of Players in Inter- Collegiate 
Sports at Oglethorpe University 

1. All students engaging in intercollegiate sports 
must be fully registered and qualified under the en- 
trance requirements of the University as published 
in the catalogue. 

2. All students engaging in intercollegiate sports 
must carry at least twelve hours (24 semester hours) 
of standard college work. 

3. All students engaging in varsity intercollegiate 
sports must have passed not less than twelve hours 
of work during the preceding year, or under the new 



Oglethorpe University 117 

system of Education must have tentatively passed 
said amount by tentative figures furnished the Regis- 
trar by the faculty. 

4. No student at Oglethorpe University shall be 
shown any preferences financially or academically be- 
cause of engaging in inter-collegiate athletics, but the 
fact that the student engages in intercollegiate sports 
shall not prejudice his selection in self-help positions 
open to all members of the student body. 

5. Oglethorpe University will not, under any cir- 
cumstances, permit the payment of any moneys for 
the services of athletes, either by alumni, friends, or 
by the college itself. 

6. The University assumes no responsibility for in- 
juries to students who engage in inter-collegiate ath- 
letics, but in lieu thereof will remit to those students 
who make the varsity or the first year squad a sum 
equivalent to their room rent, which sum is remitted 
for the purpose of paying hospital, doctor, dentist 
bills, etc., in case of injuries or treatments made neces- 
sary by their participation in any game and personal 
assumption of the risks thereby involved.

School of Radio Broadcasting 

J. A. Aldrich, Dean 

Oglethorpe University now includes a School of 
Radio Broadcasting, especially designed to prepare stu- 
dents for the technical, the commercial, the production 
and the managerial departments of radio work. Four 
distinct courses are offered. 

The first (I), a one year course, prepares the 
student to obtain a government license of the commer- 
cial second class or of the unlimited broadcast class. 
This course is outlined below. 

The second (II), a two year course, prepares the 
student for the position of program director and at 
the same time enables him to obtain a junior college 
diploma. 

The third, (III), prepares the student for the posi- 
tion of studio manager. To courses II and III, an extra 
year, (IV) may be added, at the successful completion 
of which the student will receive the degree of Bachelor 
of Arts in Radio Broadcasting. Courses II, III, and 
IV are required for the degree. 

It is believed that this is the first school of Aerial 
Journalism ever established. 

Oglethorpe University is the first college in America 
to plan systematic college work leading to proficiency 
in Radio Studio Management and Program Directing. 
Students who heretofore have had to attend technical 
schools of radio can now get this work in connection 
with such college studies as they may wish to take, in 
addition, for a liberal education. Those who are es- 
pecially ambitious may get a college degree while spe- 
cializing in radio practice and qualifying for a calling 
or profession. 



Oglethorpe University 119 

The Station WJTL of Oglethorpe has provided first 
hand information and familiarity with actual work; 
because of the existence in Atlanta of the radio region- 
al director's office, licenses issued by the Government 
can be passed on in Atlanta. 

The courses outlined below are founded upon stand- 
ard college work in Physics, Chemistry, English, for- 
eign languages and business courses. To these have 
been added certain special courses necessary for equip- 
ping the student professionally in the art and business 
of broadcasing. 

The work is under the direction of the radio staff 
of WJTL and the regular faculty of the university. 
The courses are as follows: 

Radio Theory 

Radio Theory (A). This course is of a technical 
nature designed for those who wish to secure a United 
States Government radio operator's license, broadcast 
class. 

Every phase of radio including the fundamental 
principles of electricity and magnetism, motors, gener- 
ators, storage batteries, radio theory, radio broadcast 
transmitters and studio equipment, and radio law and 
regulations will be thoroughly covered. In addition 
special work in the fields of air craft radio equipment, 
talking pictures, television, geophysical research, radio 
equipment, etc., will be taught. 

Upon completion of this course the student will have 
a knowledge of radio equal to that taught by any radio 
school in the United States, and he will be adequately 
prepared to pass the Government examinations. 

Six hours of lecture classes and six hours of lab- 



120 Oglethorpe University 

oratory per week are required. Three units of credit 
are given for the theory and three for the labora- 
tory work. In addition the student may or may not 
take fifteen hours of code practice per week depending 
on whether he wishes a restricted or an unrestricted 
broadcast license. Three hours of credit are given for 
the nine hours of code practice. 

Radio Theory. (B). This technical course is some- 
what similar to the one listed above except that it is 
designed to prepare the student for the United States 
Government's commercial second class radio operator's 
license. 

The fundamental principles of electricity and mag- 
netism, radio theory, motors, generators, storage bat- 
teries, and radio laws and regulations will be thor- 
oughly covered. Broadcast transmitters and equip- 
ment, air craft radio, television, talking pictures, geo- 
physical research, radio equipment, etc., will be touched 
upon. An intensive and minute study of continuous 
wave transmission, and transmitters, and commercial 
and ship equipment will be undertaken. 

Four hours of lecture classes and four hours of lab- 
oratory work per week are required. Also nine hours 
of code practice per week are necessary. Five hours 
of credit are given for the theory, two for the labora- 
tory work, and three for the code practice. 

Studio Management. (A and B). A two year course 
of a practical nature completely covering every phase 
of studio work from the first principle of microphone 
approach to the formulation and direction of a com- 
plete radio program. 

Announcing, continuity work, production, and pro- 
gram direction are the four general divisions to be 
covered during the four years. Subdivided under these 
general heads will be found such specialized subjects 



Oglethorpe University 121 

as voice culture, commercial and sustained continui- 
ties, plays, presentation of programs, arrangement of 
artist and instruments, selection of talent, acoustics, 
arrangement of programs, selling over the air, news 
value, etc. 

Six hours per year for two years. Six hours of 
credit are given for the twelve hours work. 

Studio Management (C). A course for the fourth 
year of those who are working for the Bachelor of 
Radio Broadcasting degree. 

The purpose of this course is to correlate practically 
and theoretically the various courses taken during the 
preceding years. The knowledge gained during those 
three years will be classified and consolidated finally 
and concretely in the mind of the student, while the 
managerial aspect of studio work will be especially 
emphasized. 

The courses in the Commercial Branch of the Radio 
Broadcasting Course include Research (statistics, sales 
plan, rates, merchandising, sales promotion, selling) ; 
Advertising (distribution, good will, publicity, sales 
results) ; Entertainment (founded on knowledge of 
English with incidental knowledge of modern lan- 
guages covering announcing) ; Languages (Italian, 
French and German, voice culture, public speaking, 
singing, history of music, articulation, inflection) ; Mu- 
sic Study Appreciation (production, microphone place- 
ment, presentation, frequency of tone, acoustics, in- 
struments and instrumentation) ; Plans and Sales 
Ideas; Contest Idea Department (commercial musical 
adaptations) ; Directing of Programs (brilliance, speed, 
selection of talent, balancing, timing, gauging) ; Pro- 
gram Directing (selection of talent, auditions, sale of 
talent, arrangement of programs, prestige, what not 



122 Oglethorpe University 

to sell, news value, listeners' interest) ; Radio Writing 
(rhetoric, commercial continuity, dramatic writing, 
typing) ; The Ethich of the Air including a study of 
the rules and regulations of the Federal Radio Com- 
mission, the best practices in salesmanship and com- 
mercial ethics. 

The above constitute the outline of the special pro- 
fessional subjects covered in the courses offered the 
students who desire to become proficient in the com- 
mercial or entertainment divisions of Radio Broad- 
casting. 

Correspondence Radio Division of Oglethorpe 
University 

Standard correspondence courses, supplemented by 
radio lectures broadcast over station WJTL constitute 
the Correspondence Radio Division of Oglethorpe Uni- 
versity, and may be used to the extent of twenty-five 
per cent toward the Bachlor's degree in any depart- 
ment. 



Oglethorpe University 123 

Correspondence Radio Courses 
Announcement of Courses 

Effective June 5, 1931, Oglethorpe University inau- 
gurated a complete program of college education by 
lectures over the radio, supported by correspondence, 
conferences and examinations. These courses are con- 
ducted in a standard, permanent and systematic man- 
ner in the class rooms of the University. 

The territory covered by the broadcasting station 
is that of greater Atlanta, and the courses are offered 
on a convenient schedule during the afternoons for 
six days of the week. Some of the courses to be offered 
which are summarized below are designed to constitute 
the greater part of a standard college education. Un- 
til television has been successfully accomplished it will 
be impossible to teach certain subjects successfully 
over the radio; but such courses as those in English, 
History, Education, Sociology, Modern and Ancient 
languages will one by one be added to the program. 
The lecture periods will be the same as those in use 
on the campus of the University. During the summer 
of 1935, the periods will last for one hour. 
I The tuition charge is $15.00 per year hour (one 
minor) the same as that for the other divisions of the 
university. This means that a course, one hour per 
day for six days of the week during a radio term (6 
term hours) will cost $30.00.* The applicant will be 
enrolled as a regular student of Oglethorpe University 
and will be notified as to what text or texts should be 
purchased and be given general instructions as to how 
to avail himself of the lectures offered. The schedule 

*A special "depression cash discount" of twenty-five percent 
(25 percent) from all catalogue charges as listed will be granted 
to those students who hold no self-help position and receive 
aid from no University loans or scholarships funds. 

The University reserves the right to lower or raise any and 
all charges if, when, and as economic conditions may require. 



124 Oglethorpe University 

of the radio courses will be forwarded to him or her 
and will also be published in the local Atlanta news- 
papers daily. The student who is a candidate for a col- 
lege degree is required to do the work in a regular and 
systematic manner, to attend the radio lectures reg- 
ularly, make notes thereon, submit them to the profes- 
sor in charge for examination and criticism, study the 
texts and correspondence sheets furnished by the Uni- 
versity, meet the professor at convenient intervals for 
conferences and guidance, either personally or by tele- 
phone, stand the customary examinations at the close 
of the work and, of course, pay the regular tuition 
fees. After each lecture the student is supposed to 
forward the notes made on the lecture immediately 
by mail to the professor in charge for criticism and re- 
view, and is also expected to append thereto any 
questions that he may desire to have answered. Ans- 
wer will be given by radio at the next lecture period. 

The correspondence radio divison of the University 
is essentially a thorough standard correspondence de- 
partment supplemented by radio lectures. Effective 
September 25, 1932, Oglethorpe will not give credit 
for ordinary correspondence work. The radio division 
is of equal standing, dignity and order with the unde- 
graduate and graduate departments of the University. 
A studio has been installed on the University cam- 
pus. The equipment is the best purchaseable, with 
crystal control and complete modulation, and with it 
the University has been assured that it will be possible 
to cover completely with a dependable signal the terri- 
tory of greater Atlanta. 

The Radio Division has been inaugurated with such 
courses as have been deemed most practicable for radio 
instruction. The broadcasting station is operated on a 
frequency of 1370 kilocycles and under the call letters 



Oglethorpe University 125 

WJTL, being thus named for Mr. John Thomas Lupton, 
donor of Lupton Hall in which the station is located, 
and donor also of the equipment of the station itself. 
It is perhaps the only station in America which is op- 
erated mainly for educational purposes.

Beginner's Course in German by Dr. H. J. Gaertner. 
One hour per day for three days per week. College 
credit, one hour (one minor) per term. Tuition charge 
$15.00 per term. 

The method of this course emphasizes speaking abil- 
ity. No formal grammar is allowed. The work will

meaning is grasped directly without referring to the 
English equivalent. The method has been successful 
and has been elaborated by years of experience. 

Mental Hygiene by Dr. H. J. Gaertner. One huor 
per day for three days per week for three terms. Col- 
lege credit one hour (one minor) per term. Tuition 
charge $15.00 per term.

ing, causes of abnormal mentality and the general way 
in which the normal mind is formed. 

The History and Appreciation of Music by Dr. Mark 
Burrows. One hour per day for three days per week, 
three terms. College credit one hour (one minor) per 
term. Tuition charge $15.00 per term. 

An inquiry into the evolution of music from the 
earliest times to the present. The plan contemplated 
is a combination of history, musical form, and appre- 
ciation. While the historical phase is interesting, 
and an understanding of musical form appeals to the 



126 Oglethorpe University 

intellectual and scientific, the main object is to culti- 
vate increased appreciation of the beauty and power of 
music as an instrument of expression. The course 
will introduce simple and primitive forms with explan- 
ations and illustrations. This will be followed in prop- 
er sequence by folk song, the dance form, the 
suite, grand opera, oratorio, and the symphony. At- 
tention will be given to instrumentation and the devel- 
opment of the modern orchestra. Illustrative material 
will be supplied by the living voice, the piano, and the 
recently perfected forms of electrical recording. The 
course will be semi-laboratory in its presentation. 
Those taking the course for college credit may pre- 
sent it as a three hour elective in the School of Edu- 
cation. 

Drama by Dr. James Routh. Twenty minutes per 
day for five days a week, three terms. College credit 
two hours. 

English Literature to 1700 by Mr. Lanier, at 10:30 
A. M. on Saturday. 

Beginners' Conversational Spanish by Prof. Fran- 
cisco Perez . One hour per day for three days of the 
week. College credit one hour (one minor) per term. 
Tuition charge $15.00 per term. 

As its name implies this is a course designed to 
teach the pupils to speak and understand the Spanish 
language correctly at the same time putting them in 
possession of the fundamental principles of the gram- 
mar.

Method of Registration 

All persons desiring to take the Correspondence 
Radio courses in a regular and systematic manner 
should fill out the matriculation sheet supplied on re- 
quest, and mail it accompanied by a check to cover the 
course or courses desired as stated above. It is not 
necessary in order to take these courses for one to 
become a candidate for a degree immediately. Later 
on if you desire to do so, the proper credentials can be 
supplied to the registrar, enabling any student to qual- 
ify as a candidate for the bachelor's degree. All stu- 
dents desiring to do this work in a systematic man- 
ner should provide themselves immediately with a 
good loose leaf notebook and with such texts as may 
be required by the professors in charge. All profes- 
sors may be reached by day over the University phone 
and by night at their homes. Notes must be taken on 
all lectures and must be mailed to the professor of the 
subject taken the following day as evidence of attend- 
ance on classes and for purposes of correction and ad- 
vice. All students who are candidates for degrees are 
required to take the final, general comprehensive ex- 
aminations such as are required in all other depart- 
ments of the University. 

All courses at Oglethorpe University, whether by 
correspondence radio, on the campus or by extension 
are of equal value and quality, and may be used inter- 
changeably for credit toward degrees upon approval of 
the dean of the department in which the student is 
working, with the exception that only twenty-five per- 
cent of Extension or Correspondence Radio work may 
be used for a degree. 



128 Oglethorpe University 

Extension Division 

H. J. Gaertner, Dean 

The work is largely planned for those seeking grad- 
uation in the Junior College Division, or for those 
working for Bachelor's or Master's Degrees. Accord- 
ingly, Oglethorpe will date the educational history of 
each student and plan the work necessary for gradua- 
tion. 

In planning such work we see that certain definite 
studies must enter the curriculum of each student. For 
the Bachelor's degree, the student must have fulfilled 
the following requirements: Science, 8 year hours; 
Foreign Language 5 or 6 year hours ; Education 9 year 
hours; English 6 year hours; History 3 year hours. 
One of the courses in English is a foundation study of 
English speech, grammar and writing. 

During recent years all Colleges have been working 
toward a better organized curriculum. It is this ten- 
dency that demands the above definite requirements. 
There is required a total of 66 year hours of acceptable 
credits. A minimum of fifteen year hours must be 
taken in Oglethorpe University. 

The Master's degree is based on the Bachelor's de- 
gree. The minimum requirement for the Master's is 
fifteen year hours. All of these must be taken from 
Oglethorpe University except in some instances where 
city administrations require 5 or 6 hours in the specific 
field in which the teacher is employed. This applies 
especially to certain vocational fields in Manual Arts 
or subjects not offered by Oglethorpe University. 

A thesis, approved by the thesis committee, is also 
required. In addition hereafter, each candidate for 
the Master's degree is required to take a course in 



Oglethorpe University 129 

thesis writing and higher English to be approved by 
the Dean. 

In addition to the Extension Division, Oglethorpe 
University offers a Summer Quarter divided into two 
terms of six weeks each. Concentarting intensively 
on a few subjects each class meets six times a week. 
Three hours each term or six year hours during 
the quarter is the regular amount of credit earned. 
However, any honor student, having a standing of 90 
percent the previous term either at Oglethorpe or any 
other approved institution will be allowed to take one 
additional hour each term, thus making 8 year hours 
the possible maximum. 

In addition, during some summers, Dr. H. J .Gaert- 
ner has taken a class of students through Europe. On 
these tours, intensive study in German, twice each day, 
is pursued on the boat, followed by language work on 
land, and is completed in regular classroom after return- 
ing. This makes it possible to earn 3 year hours in 
German as also three year hours in European civiliza- 
tion, attested by a full note book of travel information 
incorporated into a travel diary. Such a tour is 
being planned for 1935. Both of these courses are to 
be followed after the party returns by study during 
the remainder of the summer Quarter. Those who 
have taken this foreign work bear testimony to its 
great value. 

According to the rules of the City administration of 
Atlanta all extension work of their teachers must be 
done after school closes on Friday. This means Fri- 
day afternoon, Friday night and Saturday. Not more 
than two courses, one on Friday and one on Saturday 
will be permitted the city teachers, 6 year hours at 
most. This meets the wishes of the Atlanta School 



130 Oglethorpe University 

administration. 

By these plans, teachers combining extension work 
and Summer School attendance will be able to receive 
their degree in a reasonable time. 

At present the number of College graduates offering 
for teaching places is so large that we are rapidly ap- 
proaching the time when College graduation will be 
required as a minimum for the profession. 

In all divisions of Oglethorpe University there is 
now a uniform charge of fifteen dollars per year hour. 
A year hour is two semester hours frequently re- 
ferred to as a minor. Tuition is payable by the term 
(or per year hour) in advance. However, arrangements 
can be made to divide this into monthly payments. 

During the session of 1934-35 the following subjects 
have been given : Biology 1, Mental Hygiene, Spanish 1, 
Short Story, American History, Mechanical Drawing, 
Botany, Mythology, Psychology of Elementary Sub- 
jects.

University, or Dr. Herman J. Gaertner, Oglethorpe

Self-Help 

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

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



Oglethorpe University 131 

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 stu- 
dents may undertake various tasks, payment for which 
materially aids them in meeting their expenses. 

For further information address the President, 
Oglethorpe University. 

Special Loan Fund 

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 prosecute their studies at Ogle- 
thorpe. Further details upon application. 

Athletics — Hermance Field 

The magnificent generosity of Mr. and Mrs. Harry 
P. Hermance in giving to Oglethorpe an Athletic Sta- 
dium, makes feasible the development of all forms of 
field sports, including not only the great games of 
football and baseball, but also vaulting, jumping, dis- 
cus and javelin throwing, track work, etc. Physical 
culture for all students is required. 

A sanely encouraging attitude is taken by the Uni- 
versity towards intercollegiate athletics, and Ogle- 
thorpe University is acquitting herself well in that 
sphere of her educational life. 

The policy of Oglethorpe University includes the 
care of the physical life of our students as a matter 
of large importance. Regular instruction, looking to 
symmetrical development of the entire man will be 
given in the Athletic Department of the University, 



132 Oglethorpe University 

under competent medical guidance. Special attention 
is at present given to outdoor athletics. Adequate pro- 
vision is being made for football and baseball grounds. 
tennis courts, etc. Work on Hermance Stadium has been 
completed, and a section is finished providing ac- 
commodations for five thousand spectators and partici- 
pants. 

Silver Lake 

Besides having 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 conveniently to the Uinversity 
campus, with a part of its shores set aside for a univer- 
sity boat house. This will enable the institution to add 
a crew to its list of athletic sports. The lake is ad- 
mirably suited for boating, rowing, swimming and 
fishing. 

University Store 

In the Petrel Shop, operated under the superintendance 
of the Faculty, are kept all necessary college accessor- 
ies,and full lines of goods answering the various college 
requirements are constantly kept on hand. 

Moral and Religious Atmosphere 

The ability of a college or university to develop 
worthy character 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 she has been through, all of her labor 



I 



Oglethorpe University 133 



and strength and faith and prayer. If her judgements 
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. 

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 her alone of all the universi- 
ties of America, God raised from the dead. 

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

Special Religious Services 

Regular assembly exercises which the students are 
required to attend, are conducted by each of the mem- 
bers of the faculty in turn. Two years ago Testaments 
were distributed to a large number of students. 

Libraries 

By the generosity of many friends, so great as to 
be almost unparalleled, and by purchase from special 
funds provided, the University received during the 
first year of its life approximately fifty thousand vol- 
umes for the library. These consist of standard works 
in Literature, History and Science, with many val- 
uable reference works in special departments. The 
private libraries of Dr. Sellers in Science, of Dr. Nic- 
olassen in the Classics and of Dr. Burrows in Ed- 
ucation are all available for the use of the students in 
these departments. The policy of the institution is 



134 Oglethorpe University 

to let no year go by without the enlargement of the 
library. A competent librarian is in charge, and the 
rooms will be open during the year of 1935-36 from 
7:30 A.M. to 10:00 P.M. The Carnegie Library of 
Atlanta is also available for the use of our students. 

King Library of English 

By the splendid generosity of Dr. Cheston King the 
University has a library of English with some seven- 
teen thousand books and pamphlets. 

Oglethorpe Coat-of-Arms 

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 unani- 
mously adopted by the Faculty 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 excellent personal character and con- 
duct, whose general average for 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 accomplish- 
ment as to entitle them thereto in the judgment of 
the faculty." 

For students who entered in September, 1931, or 
later, the award will be made on the basis of their 
comprehensive examination at the close of the College 
Division.

The Oglethorpe Idea 

Quality is the word that expresses the Oglethorpe 
idea — quality in location, in climate, in campus, in ar- 
chitecture, in student character, in college life, in ath- 
letics and sports, in faculty, in curriculum and in re- 
ligion 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 
distinguished street of that city, on a most beautiful 
campus of over six hundred acres of woodland and mea- 
dow, including an eighty acre lake which belongs to 
our students for swimmings, boating and fishing, the 
physical advantages offered by Oglethorpe 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 



Oglethorpe University 137 

variegated slates. All of them will be as fireproof 
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 South- 
east. 

L The Oglethorpe Site— Atlanta 

The attractions of the city of Atlanta as an educa- 
tional center are fast making it one of the great in- 
tellectual 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 activities, she 
draws to herself as to a magnet the great minds of the 
nation and the world. Hither come lecturers, mu- 
sicians, statesmen, evangelists, editors, teachers and 
officials of the United States. An intellectual atmos- 
phere created by such conditions and the frequent op- 
portunity 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 ut- 
most. Facilities for hearing and meeting the great 
musicians and authors and public speakers and the 
leaders in all spheres of intellectual activity are offered 
our students. The tremendous influence of such con- 
tact upon the young lives committed to us will be felt 
in their increased ambition and redoubled determination 
to perform, themselves, their duty to their race and 
their God. 



138 Oglethorpe University 

The Silent Faculty at Oglethorpe 

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 deface their cam- 
pus. The architecture of an intitution 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, rever- 
ence and beauty may be expressed in the face of a 
ence and beauty may be expressed in the face o fa 
building and are so expressed on the Oglehtorpe 
campus. 

Not less important are the personal surroundings of 
the student's room. Cheap, ugly and ill-equipped apart- 
ments have exactly the same influence on the soul of 
a boy that cheap, ugly and ill-equipped human com- 
panions have. That is why the rooms at Oglethorpe 
are handsomely furnished. The sons of the poor are 
entitled to the information and inspiration such sur- 
roundings offer, and the sons of the rich will dete- 
riorate 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 dangeroulsly defective. 

This is the special work of the silent faculty at Ogle- 
thorpe. 

The Exceptional Opportunities of Our 
Personal Attention 

Young men who desire to enjoy the daily personal 
contact and instruction of the heads of departments 
will note with interest that Oglethorpe offers excep- 



Oglethorpe University 139 

tional opportunities of that nature. It is well known 
that in all our large institutions only the upper class- 
men come into any close contact with the full profes- 
sors, 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. This will be a permanent policy at Ogle- 
thorpe. 

Public Utilities 

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 post- 
ofRce, express office and railway station, all known as 
Oglethorpe University, Georgia. 

The Woman's Board 

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 Atlanta at the home of President 
Thornwell Jacobs, Saturday afternoon, 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 of- 



140 Oglethorpe University 

fered their services and joined the organization. Their 
activities are directed toward the support and develop- 
ment of Oglethorpe in every phase of its growth and 
activities. Each of the ladies is assigned to the com- 
mittee on which she feels she is best able to serve. These 
committees cover the various departments of the Uni- 
versity. They are : Ways and Means, Finance, Grounds, 
Press, Entertainment, Hospital, Music, Library, Arts, 
Refreshments, Transportation, and such other com- 
mittees as it may seem wise to the Board from time to 
time to appoint. 

The authorities of the University welcome the for- 
mation of this organization with the greatest joy. 

The mere fact that they have promised a devoted 
allegiance to the enterprise has its own genuine value, 
but those who know the women of Atlanta, with their 
marvelous capacity for earnest and consecrated work 
directed by a swift and accurate intelligence, will 
realize what must be the results of the efficient aid 
which they are giving to the institution. 

The Women's Board has established a permanent 
endowment fund, and has been incorporated under the 
laws of Georgia in preparation for handling funds do- 
nated or bequeathed to the University through the 
Woman's Board. 

Officers and Chairmen of the various committees 
for the year 1935-36 are as follows: 

President, Mrs. Willis Westmoreland; 1st Vice-Pres- 
ident, Mrs. Charles A. Conklin; 2nd Vice-President, 
Mrs. J. D. Cromer ; 3rd Vice-President, Mrs. E. Rivers ;

Oglethorpe University 167

The corporate functions which shall mean the control of the 
property of the corporation, its purchase, sale and other dis- 
position shall be by a Board of Trustees of such number as 
may be provided in the by-laws; no one is or shall ever be 
eligible to membership on such board except a member in 
good standing of a Presbyterian or Reformed Church. This 
Board shall be elected from among those of the Board of 
Founders, hereinafter provided for, who shall possess the 
requisite qualifications. No mortgage, sale or other disposition 
of the real property of the corporation shall ever be made 
except by vote of the Board of Trustees in a regular meeting

sider such disposition. 

There shall be a Board of Founders, of such number as may

tributing thereto, or in whose behalf there has been contributed 
in cash, property, or solvent promises not less than one thou- 
sand dollars and who are of such character and with such 
interest in promoting religion, morality and education as fits 
them for membership. This board shall have the power and 
it shall be its duty to have control and supervision over the 
educational functions of the University, of its President, of- 
ficers, faculty, and courses of study; to elect from among its 
members the Board of Trustees; to borrow money but not to 
secure the same by lien on the real property; to elect from 
eligible persons successors of the present Board of Founders; 
to create an Executive Committee with authority to perform 
all functions when the Board is not in session, as may be 
provided for in the by-laws and to perform generally the ad- 
ministrative functions of the University. The present Board 
of Trustees-Founders shall constitute the Board of Founders, 
whose members and their successors hold for life unless they 
are removed or resign. 

3. That at a regular meeting of the duly authorized of- 
ficers of the corporation held in accordance with the charter 
thereof, the aforesaid amendment was authorized as appears 
from a copy of the resolutions attached hereto, marked EX-

WHEREFORE, petitioner prays an order of this honorable 
court amending its charter as aforesaid.

EXHIBIT "A" 

Resolved by the Board of Trustees-Founders of Oglethorpe 
University that paragraph 4, as it now reads in the original 
charter thereof dated May 6, 1913, be stricken and in lieu 
thereof, a new paragraph 4 shall be inserted as follows: 

The corporate functions which shall mean the control of 
the property of the corporation, its purchase, sale and other 
disposition shall be by a Board of Trustees of such number 
as may be provided in the by-laws; no one is or shall ever 
be eligible to membership in such board except a member 
in good standing of a Presbyterian or Reformed Church. This 
Board shall be elected from among those of the Board of 
Founders, hereinafter provided for, who shall possess the 
requisite qualifications. No mortgage, sale or other disposi- 
tion of the real property of the corporation shall ever be made 
except by vote of the Board of Trustees in a regular meeting 
or in a special meeting called therefor. Notice must be given 
of the call for any such special meeting for the purpose to con- 
sider such disposition. 

There shall be a Board of Trustees of such number as may 
be prescribed by the by-laws who shall be persons who have 
shown their interest in the purpose of the University by 
contributing thereto, or in whose behalf there has been con- 
tributed in cash, property or solvent promises not less than 
one thousand dollars and who are of such character and with 
such interest in promoting religion, morality and education as 
fits them for membership. This Board shall have the power 
and it shall be its duty to have control and supervision over 
the educational functions of the University, of its President, 
officers, faculty, and courses of study; to elect from among 
its members the Board of Trustees; to borrow money but not 
to secure the same by lien on the real property; to elect from 
eligible persons successors of the present Board of Founders, 
to create an Eecutive Committee with authority to perform 
all its functions when the Board is not in session, as may be 
provided for in the by-laws and to perform generally the ad- 
ministrative functions of the University. The present Board 
of Trustees-Founders shall constitute the Board of Founders, 
whose members and their successors shall hold for life unless 
they are removed or resign. 

Resolved further that the President of the Board of Trus- 
tees-Founders be authorized and directed to take the necessary 
steps to amend the Constitution of Oglethorpe University as 
herein before resolved. 

I, Joseph R. Murphy, Secretary, Board of Trustees-Foun- 
ders, Oglethorpe University, hereby certify that the above and

Historical 

(From a copy of the Miledgeville Journal, Septeinber 5, 1837 
Presented to the University library by Miss Emmxi Thomas 
of Athens, Georgia, the great-granddaughter of Mr. B. P. 
Stubbs, Secretary, who signed the notice in behalf of the Ex- 
ecutive Com,mittee.) 

Oglethorpe University 

It has already been announced, that this Institution will 
commence its exercises on the first Monday of January, 1838. 
The Board of Trustees, while again calling public attention 
to this fact, offer some remarks in explanation to a new feature 
which they may have given to its character. 

The University will consist of three departments, Collegiate, 
Academic, asd Primary. 

Any person desirous of seeing the laws which govern the 
Collegiate department, can obtain a copy of the pamphlet con- 
taining them, by application to B. P. Stubbs, of this place, Sec- 
retary and Treasurer of the Board. 

Candidates for admission into the Freshman Class, must be 
prepared to stand an examination on Caesar's Commentaries, 
four books, Cicero's Select Orations, Mair's Introduction to 
Latin Syntax, the Gospels in the Greek Testament, Dalpel's 
Grammar, including Latin Prosody; also, on English Gram- 
mar, Arithmetic and Geography, ancient and modern.

Oglethorpe University 171 



The Academic Department will consist of those who are 
preparing for intrance into this or any other college. 

The Primary Department will be composed of those pur- 
suing the ordinary branches of an English education. 

The students of these two departmenets as well as the Col- 
legiate, will be instructed by the Faculty of the College. 

In consequence of this arrangement, boys, in the early stage 
of their literary course, will enjoy advantages perhaps un- 
surpassed in this country, as they will be taught by a regular 
Faculty, while the students of the college will recieve the full 
amount of instruction ordinarily given them, as will be seen 
by a reference to the course of study. This system will vastly 
increase the labor of the Faculty; this labor they have how- 
ever consented to undergo. 

The adoption of this new plan has been caused by the pecu- 
liar state of the times. Though the amount on our subscrip- 
tion list is sufficient to warrent the commencement of the work 
in its original form, yet from the present state of affairs, it 
would have been more than indelicate to call upon many in- 
dividuals for their subscriptions. On the other hand, many 
parents have been making arrangements to send their sons to 
Midway during the next year. Such persons it would be 
painful to disappoint, yet it would be impossible to proceed 
for want of surplus in hand. The course now announced as 
being adopted, was then proposed — that is, to bring the Acad- 
emy and College under the government and instruction of the 
same President and Professors. By this arrangement the er- 
pense of the institution will be sustained, and all difficulties 
in its way removed. 

The Board of Trustees takes this occasion to say, that this 
year the Steward's Hall will be discontinued. This is done, 
that there may be no hindrance in the way of such persons as 
may wish to move to Midway for the purpose of taking 
boarders. 

The Trustees close this communication by suggesting to 
parents, (who desire their children to be educated, and who 
cannot afford to send them abroad for this purpose) the pro- 
priety of settling themselves at Midway. By taking boarders, 
the expenses of their family could be more sustained, and 
their children of all ages receive thorough and finished edu- 
cation. To others disposed to turn their attention to keeping 
boarders as a business, we would suggest that Midway offers 
inducements inferior to few if any other positions at the South 
— a healthy and delightful location, and as many boardsrs as 
they may be able to accomodate. 

By order of the Executive Committee. 

B. P. STUBBS, Secretary. 
July, 11th.

Illustrated Booklet of Views

very beautiful illustrated booklet of views showing

The Stormy Petrels for which the athletic teams of 
the college are named. This booklet is sold for $1.00; 
but we will gladly send a copy of it without charge to
