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

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

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

I CLEAR EMPYREAN OF THY TRUTH. COVER ME WITH THE 1 

i WINGS THAT SHADOW FROM ALL HARM. LAY MY THRESH- f 

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

I FLOORS IN THE CEMENT OF UNBREAKABLE FRIENDSHIP AND i 

I MAY MY WINDOWS BE TRANSPARENT WITH HONESTY. LEAD | 

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

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

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

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

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 MB UNTO THIS GOOD DAY. ROCK-RIBBED MAY I STAND FOR I 

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

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

= ME FROM THE WINDS OF ERROR. LET THE LIGHTNING THAT = 

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

1 IN DESPAIR. MAY THE YOUNG AND THE PURE AND THE 1 

I CLEAN-HEARTED PUT THEIR TRUST SECURELY IN ME NOR 1 

I MAY ANY WHO COME TO MY HALLS FOR GUIDANCE BE 1 

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

I THRILL TO THE HAPPY SONGS OF THE TRUE-HEARTED AND § 

I MAY THE VERY HEART OF MY CAMPUS SHOUT FOR JOY 1 

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

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

§ MAY BE NO STAIN UPON MY STONES, FOREVER. AMEN, i

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.

14 Oglethorpe Univeksity 

Historical Sketch 

The historical genesis of Oglethorpe University 
takes us back to the middle of the eighteenth century 
when, under the leadership of Presbyterian mpn, 
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 distance which must 
be traveled by stage or on horseback, suggested the 
building of a similar institution under the auspices of 
Presbyterianism in the South. The movement began 
with the spring meeting of Hopewell Presbjrtery 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 were world famous. Among these 
were Joseph LeConte, the great geologist. James 
Woodrow, the brilliant and devoted Christian and sci- 



Oglethorpe University 15 

entist; Samuel K. Talmadge, the eminent administra- 
tor and many others. It is, perhaps, the chief glory 
of old Oglethorpe that after three years of instruction 
she graduated Sidney Lanier of 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, discoverers, 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- 
vested in Confederate bonds, and her buildings which 
were used for barracks and hospital, were later burn- 
ed. An effort was made to revive the institution in 
the '70's and to locate it in Atlanta, but the evils of re- 
construction days and financial disaster made the ad- 
venture impossible, and after a year and a half of 
struggle the doors were closed for the second time. 

Only twenty-two 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-sacrific- 
ing liberality on the part of over five thousand people. 

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



16 Oglethorpe University 

The Opening, September 20, 1916 

Oglethorpe University opened her doors in the au- 
tumn of 1916. After 50 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 variegated 
slates and as near fire proof as human skill can make 
it, was ready for occupancy in the fall of 1916, when 
the first class gathered on her beautiful campus on 
Peachtree Road. A faculty equal to that of any cog- 
nate institution in the country was formed. The work 
of raising funds and new costruction goes steadily on. 
All of this has been done in the midst of financial dis- 
aster 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 he!r 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 the 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 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 or more to the enterprise; the 
splendid triumph of the Atlanta campaigns; all this 



Oglethorpe University 17 

is well known. Since that time the same wonderful 
record has been maintained. There are now something 
like five thousand men, women and children, all of 
whom have contributed or promised from fifty cents 
to $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 in America. The architecture 
is Collegiate Gothic; the building material is 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. 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 entrance. 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 mentioned above with 
the landscape work required, will be approximately 
$4,000,000. The building plan will be followed 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 



18 Oglethorpe University 

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 Helen 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 



Oglethorpe University 19 

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 
are taking the superb traditions of the Old Oglethorpe 
and adding the best of the 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 deied 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 WATL. 

The Faculty of the University 

The Board of Directors of Oglethorpe University, 
realizing the responsibility upon them of selecting a 



20 Oglethorpe University 

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 inteinse 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 thei 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 
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- 
resentative and cosmopolitan American corps of 
teachers.

30 Oglethorpe University 

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- 
cialist in professional and business life and teachers 
in our high schools and colleges, and to supply the 
growing demand for specially equipped men in every 
department of human activity. 

Students who are looking forward to university 
work are invited to correspond with the President in 
order that they may 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 inveistigation. 

The campus consists of approximately six hundred 
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 immediately 
in front of the entrance is the terminus of the Ogle- 
thorpe 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 



Oglethorpe University 31 

second and third floors, the hospital and dormitories. 
Lupton Hall contains the library, the President's of- 
fice, class rooms, dormitories, an Assembly Hall seat- 
ing approximately 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 University Press is equipped with a Bab- 
cock optimus press, linotype machine and two job 
presses, with a number of type stands and other 
printing equipment given by a friend of the Univer- 
sity. Lowry Hall houses the Lowry School of Bank- 
ing 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 con- 
tains class rooms and dormitories, and will stand as 
a perpetual memorial to the generosity of Colonel R. 
J. Lowry and Emma Markham Lowry.

his deficiencies by standing entrance examinations on 
four subjects, two of which shall be English and Math- 
ematics. The candidate must present at least three 
units in English and two units in Mathematics. A 
unit represents a year's study in any subject in an ac- 
credited high school. 

List of Entrance Units 

Fifteen units may be selected from the following list: 

Group I 

English Grammar I 1 unit 

Rhetoric I 1 unit

Special Students 

students twenty years of age may be admitted for 
special study upon satisfying the Faculty as to their 
ability to do the work of the classes which they wish 



34 Oglethorpe University 

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

Persons under twenty years of age desiring to pur- 
sure special courses not leading to a degree may do so 
as unregistered students upon the passage of an ex- 
amination 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. 

LATE REGISTRATION 

A charge of $1 a day (up to $5) will be made for 
students who register after the time set for registra- 
tion at the beginning of any term (not for the sum- 
mer session). 

Standards For Georgia 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 teach- 
er training institutions for the State of Georgia. 

It is not proposed that these standards should op- 



* 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 Georgia until the proper show- 
ing has been made to the State Board of Education that the 
proposed University, College, Normal, or Pi-ofessional school 
shall give evidence of its ability to meet the standard require- 
ments set up by the State Board of Education. 



Oglethorpe University 35 

erate to make it impossible for a worthy new enter- 
prise to be begun, nor for a worthy institution now 
in operation to be denied a fair opportunity for de- 
velopment. 

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 
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 in- 
stitution shall have met the conditions of these 
standards. 

(b) 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 
curriculum ; 

(c) Which organizes its curricula in such a way 
that the early years are a continuation of, and 
supplement the work of the secondary school 
and at least the last two years are shaped more 
or less distinctly in the direction of special, 

professional, or graduate instruction; 



36 Oglethorpe University 

(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 
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 reg- 
ular college courses if the authorities of the college 
are satisfied that such persons can carry the courses 
satisfactorily. These shall be classified as special 
students and shall not be admitted to candidacy for 
bachelor's degrees until all entrance requirements 
have been satisfied. 

3. Graduation: 

A college shall require for graduation the comple- 
tion of a minimum quantitative requirement of 120 
semester hours of credit (or the equivalent in term 
hours, quarter hours, points, majors, or courses) with 
further qualitative requirements adapted by each in- 
stitution to its conditions. 

A semester hour is defined as a credit for work in 
a class which meets for at least one sixty-minute per- 
iod (including ten minutes for change of classes) 
weekly for lecture, recitation, or test for a semester 



Oglethorpe University 37 

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. Insti- 
tutions of limited resources and inadequate facilities 
for graduate work should confine themselves to strict- 
ly 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 devot- 
ing 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 correspondingly increased. The development of 
varied curricula should involve the addition of other 
heads of departments. 
7. Training of Faculty: 

Faculty members of professional rank shall have 
not less than one full year of graduate work, major- 



38 Oglethorpe University 

ing 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 
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, exceeding 18 recitation hours or their equiv- 
alent per week per instructor, will be interpreted as 
endangering educational efficiency. Sixteen hours is 
the recommended 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. Increase in faculty, stu- 
dent body and scope of instruction should be accom- 
panied by a corresponding increase of income from 



Oglethorpf University 39 

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 than 
$15,000 from non-educational services, such as board, 
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. 



40 Oglethorpe University 

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 reg- 
ular students. A notably small proportion of college 
students 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 
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 degres, 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 institu- 
tion, including the existence and culture of good mor- 
als and ideals, and satisfaction and enthusiasm among 
students and staff shall be factors in determining its 
standing. 

16. Extra-Curricular Activities: 

The proper administration of athletics, student pub- 
lications, student organizations, and all extra-curricu- 
lar activities, is one of the fundamental tests of a 



Oglethorpe University 41 

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. 

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 Educa- 
tion. 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 ap- 
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 ac- 
credited by the Department shall be open to inspec- 
tion at any time. 



Oglethorpe University was the first educational in- 
stitution in Georgia to be inspected and fully accred- 
ited by the State Board of Education after the adop- 
tion of the above Standards, following the approval 
of them by all the educational institutions in the com- 
monwealth. 



42 Oglethorpe University 

Courses of Instruction and 
Requirements For Degrees 

In the session of 1936-37 Oglethorpe University will 
offer courses in the undergraduate classes of eight 
schools leading to the customary academic degrees. 
The degree of Bachelor of Arts (A.B.) in Liberal 
Arts will be conferred upon those students satisfac- 
torily completing a four years' course as outlined be- 
loW, 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 Jour- 
nalism will be given to those students who complete a 
course including work in languages, literature and 
journalism. The degree of Bachelor of Arts in Com- 
merce will be conferred upon those students who sat- 
isfactorily complete a full four years' course in studies 
relating particularly to business administration. The 
degree of Bachelor of Arts in Education will be con- 
ferred 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 re- 
quirements 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. 



Oglethorpe University 43 

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 expecting 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 Sec- 
retarial Preparation; 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 tel*m are not en- 



44 Oglethorpe University 

tered as credits for graduation, — only as an indica- 
tion to the student and the instructor of the character 
of the work being done. When the student appears 
to have satisfactorily completed two years of work he 
will be recommended by the Dean of his department 
to the Faculty for a final, comprehensive examina- 
tion, both written and oral, on all subjects taken. 
Upon the satisfactory 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 Divis- 
ion. The same plan will be followed in the Univer- 
sity Division. Upon completion of a satisfactory com- 
prehensive examination the degree and diploma will 
be conferred. It is believed that the new system will 
incite the student to select and coordinate his course 
of study as a whole, and to master it. The inferior 
student will stand small chance of passing the com- 
prehensive 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 temp- 
tation, 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 in- 
stitutions of at least junior college or normal grade. 
Such students must have at least 18 hour credits. 

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



Oglethorpe University 45 

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 
college hours is considered a reasonable amount of 
work for a pupil giving all his time to instruction. 
Therefore, as teachers are supposed to give at least 
half of their time to their teaching and to its prepar- 
ation, 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 summer school work. When it is under- 
stood that this means seven and a half to nine hours 
of class room work a week, not to mention the prep- 
aration involved, it will be seen that this is reason- 
able. 

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 spec- 
ial committee of the Faculty, appointed to review 
same. 



46 Oglethorpe University 

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 
instruction 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 instruc- 
tion per week. The courses offered by 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 term for each seven 
hour per week course is $35.00; other courses in ex- 
act proportion, except in the Art Department- The 
charges for work done in the laboratories are one-half 
of the 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 tuition, laboratory and other 
college fees, is approximately $247.50 per year. The 
tuition charge includes tickets to all athletic games 
played on the campus and the annual performance 
of the Oglethorpe Players Club. All tuition charges 
are payable quarterly in advance and no rebates are 
given.

48 Oglethorpe University 

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 
buildings of the University will be like those now 
finished, which are believed to be entirely fireproof, 
being constructed of steel, concrete, and granite 
with partitions of brick and hollow tile. 

The rates named above 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 
general toilet and bath on the same floor. Each room 
contains a lavatory furnishing hot and cold water. 
The second grade is that of the second floor of the 
Administration building, and is composed of suites 
of rooms, each suite containing a bedroom, bath, and 
study. The price charged includes first class board, 
steam heat and electric lights, water and janitor's 
service; all rooms are furnished adequately and sub- 
stantially. Every room in the dormitory contains 
ample closet space. The rooms are large, airy, safe 
and comfortable. 

The furniture is of substantial quality and is ap- 
proximately the same for all rooms, including chiffon- 
ier, study-table, chairs, single beds, springs and mat- 
tresses. Room linen, pillows and bed clothing are 
furnished by the student. Application for rooms 
should be made 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 



Oglethorpe University 49 

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 tem is as 
follows: 

Room rent: Administration Building, third floor, 
Lupton Hall, third floor, and Lowry Hall, second and 
third floors (two or more to the room) $26.00 per 
term. Administration Building, second floor $46.00 
per term (two or more to the room). The charge for 
board is $60.00 for the Autumn term, and $50-00 for 
the Spring and Winter terms. This is furnished 
in the form of meal tickets. Additional tickets may 
be purchased 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 is allow- 
ed. All charges are payable in advance by the term, 
of approximately eleven weeks as per college calendar, 
and no rebate is allowed for any reason. The particu- 
lar attention of the student is called to the fact that 
the issuance of these meal tickets is for their con- 
venience, solely; that they are good only for meals 
taken during the term for which they are issued and 
that the charge for them is $60.00 for the Autumn 
term, and $50.00 for the Spring and Winter terms, 
and is not subject to rebate of any kind on account 
of failure of students to use the tickets which are fur- 
nished 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 
cafeteria prices at will, as conditions may require. 



50 Oglethorpe University 

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 
payments are permitted under special conditions the 
obligation of the student to meet deferred payments 
is not thereby impaired. Such special privileges of 
payment will be withdrawn in all cases where the stu- 
dent fails to make settlement without previous billing 
or notice. A penalty of $5.00 is assessed on all stu- 
dents attending classes or any examination without 
having settled their account in advance and $1 per day 
of absence (maximum five dollars) for delayed regis- 
tration of Fall, Winter and Spring terms. If a stu- 
dent attends a single class, or occupies a dormitory 
room for a single night or purchases a cafeteria 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. 

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

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 
Atlanta market. 



Oglethorpe University 51 

Student Activities Fee 

The expenses at Oglethorpe University are made as 
low as the quality of the instruction, of rooming ac- 
comodations and of table fare will permit. No fees 
such as matriculation, library, hospital, contingent, 
athletics, etc. are charged. The only exception to 
this rule is a fee of $7.50 per term (on which no dis- 
count 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; expenses of dramatic club; expenses of glee 
club, band and orchestra; and a subscription to the 
Stormy Petrel and Yamacraw, if and when published 
by the University Press. This fee also provides 
each student with a ticket to all inter-collegiate games 
played by Oglethorpe teams in Atlanta and provides 
for his participation without other charge in such 
intra-mural sports as the program offers. 

Caution Deposit 

A deposit of $5.00 is required of all boarding stu- 
dents upon registration, which will be refunded after 
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, is 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. 



52 Oglethorpe University 

Infirmary 

The University maintains at all times an excellent 
infirmary, with a nurse in attendance, for the prompt 
treatments 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 sei> 
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 
render. This includes accidents and injuries arising 
from perticipation in inter-collegiate sports, in which 
case a special consideration is offered as specified else- 
where. 

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 baggag* 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 



Oglethorpe University 53 

special rate by the Atlanta Baggage and Cab Co- 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 of regular students who desire to 
speed up their courses or to make up work that is un- 
satisfactory. It also serves a large number or 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. Local 
extension students by availing themselves of the op- 
portunities of the Summer Session are able to do an 
amount of work, in twelve calendar months, equal to 
that done in an academic year of nine months by a 
full-time campus student. 

Graduate School 

It is the purpose of Oglethorpe University to de- 
velop a thoroughly excellent Graduate School, offer- 
ing courses in all departments leading to the Master's 
degree. In supplying this need, which has for a long 
while been acutely felt in the South, the management 
of the University will be content only with the very 
highest grades 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. 
This degree is based upon that of Bachelor of Arts 
of Oglethorpe University or of some other approved 



54 Oglethorpe University 

institution. The candidate must carry an aggregate 
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 
degree is not guaranteed at the end of a fixed period 
of time. A certain amount of work must be accom- 
plished, and the quality of it must be such as to satis- 
fy 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 attained the highest academic degree offer- 
ed that department. This fact is mentioned in order 
to indicate the earnest determination of the Board 
of Directors of the University that her faculty shall 
include only men of the highest intellectual attain- 
ment as well as men of great teaching power and 
strong personality. 

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 of- 
ficial transcripts from standard institutions recogniz- 
ed 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 
subject selected as a minor. 

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 for nine months) carries a credit of one 
hour per term, three hours per year. 

A minimum of fifteen college hours or one year 
of work and a minimum of one year (nine months) 



Oglethorpe University 55 

of residence is required for the Master's degree. A 
minimum of one year or approximately nine months' 
residence is required 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 
counsel 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. 

CONDITIONS FOR CONTINUED ATTENDANCE 

It being the purpose of the University to offer its 
services only to those students who by their applica- 
tion and conduct show their appreciation of their op- 
portunities and also to protect its patrons from the de- 
moralizing influences of indifferent and undesirable 
students, the University will at its own discretion 
and without further explanation, exercise the right 
to decline re-registration at the beginning of any 
term to those students who, in the opinion of the ap- 
pointed officials are not making satisfactory campus 
citizens. 

In pursuance of this purpose, a complete list of the 
student body is presented at the close of each term 
to the dean of the University, to the dean of women, 
to the librarian, to the bursar, matron, cashier, foot- 
ball coach, superintendent, ragistrar and to the presi- 
dent of the student body with directions that each of 
them should canvass the list and set a mark opposite 



56 Oglethorpe University 

the name of any student who, in their opinion, has de- 
finitely failed in any of the following points : 

1 — Continued failure to attend classes, including 
the Tuesday assembly. 

2 — Continued failure in their classroom work and 
inattention and misbehavior in the classrooms and 
at assembly exercises. 

3 — Willful destruction of or damage to University 
property. 

4 — Disloyalty to the University and discourtesy to 
any of the faculty or officials. 

5 — Evident dissatisfaction with rules and regula- 
tions or discontent with facilities offered 

6 — Ungentlemanly or unladylike behavior, includ- 
ing cheating, stealing and drunkenness or continual 
breach of good manners. 

Should any student be marked adversely by as many 
as four of the persons voting, he or she will not be re- 
registered nor accepted as a student at a subsequent 
term, this with no implication of expulsion but to 
meet the standards adopted for our students. 

The President of the University is directed to super- 
vise the balloting and and to warn all those taking 
part in it to guard their votes against the influence of 
personal prejudice. Only the best interests of the 
students and the good of the institution are to be con- 
sidered. 



The appointed officials of the institution reserve 
the right to suspend or expel any student whose con- 
duct or lack of proper application to his studies may, in 
the opinion of said officials, warrant the suspension 
or expulsion. All contracts and agreements made 
with the students by the University are subject to the 
above conditions for continued attendance.

School of Literature and Journalism 

Sterling Lanier, Acting 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 every- 
day use. For either, good habits in the use of lan- 
guage are essential, and are a prime consideration in 
the department. 

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 sum- 
mer courses, though not identical with the winter 
courses, are planned along similar lines. This will 
enable a student to complete a portion of his require- 
ments for a degree in the summer. 

For graduate students work is offered leading to 
the degree of A.M. See page 69. 

English 

English 111-2-3. Composition. Practice in speak- 
ing and writing, with collateral study of masterpieces 
of modem prose. The chief object of the course is to 
teach the student to arrange his thoughts clearly and 
present them with force. He is also encouraged to 
enlarge his vocabulary and his stock of ideas by the 
reading of good essays. Three hours-

The study will include the mastery of the history 
contained in the Bible, an analysis of each book, and 
such other matters as are required for the proper un- 
derstanding of the work. It will be treated not from

ature. The aim will be to impart such a knowledge 
of the subject as every intelligent man should possess, 
enabling him to read his Bible with pleasure and 
profit. 

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

Pre-Professional Courses 

Sudents who are contemplating the profession of 
medicine 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 



82 Oglethorpe University 

for college entrance, professional students mjust com- j| 
plete one or more years of college work, according to 
the requirements of the institution that they are plan- 
ning to enter. The attention of the prospective stu- 
dent, however, 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 recom- 
mend for them is that leading to the Bachelor of Arts 
in Science, outlined on page 83. J

Mark Burrows, Dean 

The aim of all instruction in the Lowry School of 
Banking and Commerce is to furnish the general basis

the special technique of the particular business or in- 
dustry 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 
student is required to obtain a thorough knowledge 
of the basic subjects including accounting, finance, 
economics, and business law. 

Those intending to teach commerce subjects in pub- 
lic high schools should take a sufficient number of

is given to pictorial arrangement. One to three hours 
each term. 

Art: Elementary Modeling. Modeling from nat- 
ural forms, casts, fruit, flowers as well as convention- 
al ornaments. This course is well adapted to teach- 
ers in both the grades and high schools. One hour. 

Art: Advanced Antique: Drawings made from 
classical casts including busts and figures. Two 
hours. 

Art: Pattern Design. The work in this course 
deals with the study of historical ornament, the de- 
signing of surface or all-over patterns, for such ar- 
ticles as rugs, linoleum, wall paper, textiles, station- 
ery, candy boxes, etc. Two hours. 

Art: Applied Design. This course is particularly 
adapted to high school teachers. It includes prob- 
lems centering around woodwork, metal work, plas- 
ter, etc. One year hour to six hours each term. 

Art: Advertising Layout. Work of an advanced 
nature in the planning of larger projects in the field 
of advertising, window and store displays. One to 
three hours. 

Art: Advanced Pictorial Composition. A thorough 
background of art is required for entrance into this 
course. The principles of design, color and pictorial

will be assigned composition and execution of a mu- 
ral painting in tempera or oils. One to six hours 
each term. 

Art: Landscape Painting. Pictorial work in old 
color by out-of-doors classes. One to six hours each 
term. 

Art: Portrait Painting. A detailed study of the 
head and careful delineation of the features, charac-

ment modeling, bust and figure study. This course 
also includes instruction in armature construction and 
the casting of figures in plaster. 

Such of these courses as are demanded will be giv- 
en, but not all in any one year. 

Etiquette. The course in Etiquette is designed to 
provide a thorough grounding in good manners for 
young men and women of college age. Many, even 
with good home background, discover that they have 
no idea just what is expected of them in certain situ- 
ations, and feel ashamed to ask. Still more are un- 
conscious of the fact that they are doing the wrong 
things and exposing themselves to criticism whenever 
they do. Accordingly, it is an important and prac- 
tical part of education to know what the rules are. 
Emphasis is placed on the fundamental principle of 
courtesy upon which rests the great bulk of what may 
be called good usage in manners. Here at Oglethorpe 
the university motto is particularly appropriate — 
"Good minds, good morals, good manners." Elective. 
One hour a week.

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 sub- 
jects, 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 especial- 
ly 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 demonstra- 
tion. Each organ is studied with reference to its 
development, anatomy and physiology. Bones, mus- 
cles, 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 
miicroscopic slides. Weekly quizzes are supplemented 
by written tests given upon the completion of some 
general division of the subject.

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- 
cal Education sponsors the program of Intramural 
Athletics. 

The purpose of the intramural departmient is to en- 
courage every student to participate in some or all 
intramural sports, to provide facilities for this par- 
ticipation, to organize and promote intramural 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 



Oglethorpe University 



109 



the wholesome effect of organized sports, and from 
the physical development which naturally follows. 

Intramural competitors, strangers at first but later 
friends, learn courage, determination, and self con- 
trol. 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 
physical exercise every day of the school year.

110 Oglethorpe University 

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 v^ay in which a football 
or baseball player can receive aid at Oglethorpe is 
in the same way that other students are aided, by 
such self-help jobs as it may be possible for them to 
fill consistent with their week-end absences. These 
positions pay from twenty to forty cents per hour 
and if occupied industriously and efficiently will cov- 
er the student'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 
exactly alike, neither favoring nor discriminating 
against a boy who happens to be a fine football play- 
er. 

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

1. All students engaging in inter-collegiate 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 inter-collegiate sports 
must carry at least twelve hours (24 semester hours) 
of standard college work. 

3. All students engaging in varsity inter-collegiate 
sports must have passed not less than twelve hours 



Oglethorpe University 111 

of work during the preceding year, or under the new 
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 inter-collegiate 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, perm,it 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 nec- 
essary by their participation in any game and per- 
sonal assumption of the risks thereby involved. 



■>13 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 ful- 
filled the following requirements: Science, 8 year 
hours; Foreign Language, 5 or 6 year hours; Educa- 
tion, 9 year hours; English, 6 year hours; History 3 
year hours. One of the courses in English is a foun- 
dation study of English speech, grammar and writ- 
ing. 

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 accept- 
able 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 spe- 
cific field in which the teacher is employed. This ap- 
plies especially to certain vocational fields in Manual 
Arts or subjects not offered by Oglethorpe Univer- 
sity. 

A thesis, approved by the thesis committee, is also 



Oglethorpe University 113 

required. In addition hereafter, each candidate for 
the Master's degree is required to take a course in 
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. Concentrating 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. How- 
ever, any honor student, having a standing of 90 per 
cent the previous term either at Oglethorpe or any 
other approved institution will be allowed to take one 
additional hour each term, thus making 8 hours the 
possible maximum. 

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 
Friday afternon, Friday night and Saturday. Not 
more than two courses, one on Friday and one on Sat- 
urday will be permitted the city teachers, 6 year hours 
at most. This meets the wishes of the Atlanta School 
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 offer- 
ing for teaching places is so large that we are rap- 
idly approaching 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 dolllars per year 
hour. A year hour is two semester hours frequently 
referred to as a minor. Tuition is payable by the 



^1^ Oglethorpe University 

term (or per year hour) in advance. However, ar- 
rangements can be made to divide this into monthly 
payments. 

During the session of 1935-36 the following sub- 
jects have been given: Biology 1; Mental Hygiene, 
Spanish 1; Short Story, American History, Mechan- 
ical Drawing, Botany, Mythology, Psychology of Ele- 
mentary Subjects. 

For any further information, address Oglethorpe 
University, or Dr. Herman J. Gaertner, Oglethorpe 
University, Ga. Telephone Cherokee 3210. 

DIRECTIONS, ON ARRIVAL 

Students arriving at any of the Railway or Bus 
terminals in Atlanta may board "West Peachtree- 
Oglethorpe University" street cars at the points listed 
below. This method of transportation is much more 
economical than by taxicab. 

Students arriving at the Terminal Station in At- 
lanta may walk a distance of four blocks (down Mit- 
chell Street to Broad Street, up Broad Street to the 
northwest corner of Broad and Marietta Streets) and 
board the street car. 

Students arriving at the Union Station may walk 
a distance of two blocks (down Forsyth to Marietta 
Street, down Marietta to Broad Street) and board 
the street car at the same point as described above. 

Students arriving at the Union Bus Terminal may 
walk a distance of two blocks (up Carnegie Way to 
Peachtree Street, up Peachtree Street one block to 
a safety zone) and board the same car at this point. 

Fares on street cars in Atlanta are ten cents for 
one fare (cash) or four tickets for thirty cents. These 
tickets may be purchased from the street car operator. 



Oglethorpe Univbrsity 115 

Athletics — Hermance Field 

The ina,gnificent generosity of Mr. and Mrs. Harry 
P. Hermance in giving to Oglethorpe an Athletic Sta- 
dium, makes feasible the development of all forme 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 toward intercollegiate athletics, and Ogle- 
thorpe University is acquitting herself well in that 
sphere of her educational life. 

The pohcy 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, 
under competent medical guidance. Special attention 
is at present given to outdoor athletics. Adequate 
provision is being made for football and baseball 
grounds, tennis courts, etc. Work on Hermance Sta- 
dium has been completed, and a section is finished 
providing accommodations for five thousand specta- 
tors and participants. 

Lake Phoebe 

Besides having those sports common to all well 
equipped colleges in the South, Oglethorpe Univer- 
sity is the fortunate possessor of a beautiful lake 
covering eighty acres located conveniently to the Uni- 
versity campus, with a part of its shores set aside 
for a university boat house. This will enable the 



116 Oglethorpe University 

institution to add a crew to its list of athletic sports. 
The lake is admirably suited for boating, rowing, 
swimming and fishing. 

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 
and strength and faith and prayer. If her judg- 
ments 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 uni- 
versities 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. 

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 



Oglethorpe Univbrsity 117 

works in Literature, History and Science, with many- 
valuable 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 Edu- 
cation are all available for the use of the students 
in these departments. The policy of the institution is 
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 1936-37 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. 

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. Three years ago Testa- 
ments were distributed to a large number of students. 
During the last two years daily preaching services 
have been held for one or two weeks by Rev. Peter 
Marshall, pastor of Westminster Presbyterian Church, 
Atlanta, Ga. 

Oglethorpe Goat-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 



118 Oglethorpe University 

future under the terms of the following resolution 
unanimously adopted by the Faculty of the univer- 
sity, 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 



Oglethorpe University 121 

distinguished street in that city, on a most beautiful 
campus of over six hundred acres of woodland and 
meadow, including an eighty acre lake which belongs 
to our students for swimming, boating and fishmg, 
the physical advantages offered by Oglethorpe Univ- 
ersity are unsurpassed anywhere in the section _ 

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

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 clima,te, 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 mmds 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. Facihties for hearing and meeting the great 



122 Oglethorpe University 

musicians and authors and public speakers and the 
leaders in all spheres of intellectual activity are offer- 
ed our students. The tremendous influence of such 
contact upon the young lives committed to us will be 
felt in their increased ambition and redoubled deter- 
mination to perform, themselves, their duty to their 
race and their God. 

The Silent Facutly at Oglethorpe 

It is not going too far to say that the aesthetic 
tasts 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 institution 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 tihose qualities of soul we 
know as honesty, solidity, dignity, durability, rever- 
ence and beauty may be expressed in the face of a 
building and are so expressed on the Oglethorpe 
campus. 

Not less important are the personal surroundings 
of the student's room. Cheap, ugly and ill-equipped 
apartments have exactly the same influence on the 
soul of a boy that cheap, ugly and ill-equipped human 
companions have. That is why the rooms at Ogle- 
thorpe are handsomely furnished. The sons of the 
poor are entitled to the information and inspiration 
such surroundings offer, and the sons of the rich will 
deteriorate with them. 

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



Oglethorpb University 123 

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

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- 
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 in 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 
Oglethorpe. 

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 postoffice, 
express office and railway station, all known as Ogle- 
thorpe University, Georgia. 

Woman's Board 

One of the most remarkable gatherings, even in 
this city of remarkable gatherings, was the assemb- 
ling of approximately two hundred of the represen- 



124 Oglethorpe University 

tative women of the city of Atlanta at the homie of 
President Thornwell Jacobs, Saturday afternoon, No- 
vember 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 work- 
ers and most representative women of the city have 
offered their services and joined the organization. 
Their activities are directed toward the support and 
development of Oglethorpe in every phase of its 
growth and activities. Each of the ladies is assigned 
to the comimittee on which she feels she is best able 
to serve. These committees cover the various depart- 
ments of the University. They are : Ways and Means, 
Finance, Grounds, Press, Entertainment, Hospital, 
Music, Library, Arts, Refreshments, Transportation, 
and such other commiittees 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 Woman's Board has established a permanent 
endowment fund, and has been incorporated under the

lishments, and to look after the general interests of such in- 
stitutions; to grant diplomas and confer degrees, literary,

dence of indebtedness incurred or which may be incurred in 
the conduct of the affairs of the corporation and to secure the 
same by mortgages, security, deed, bond, or other form of lien 
under existing laws as well as under any other laws that may 
hereafter be passed. 

6. They desire for the said corporation the power and au- 
thority to apply for and accept amendments to its charter of

Historical 



(From a copy of the Milledgeville Journal, September 5, 1937, 
presented to the University library by Miss Emma Thomas, 
of Athens, Georgia, the great-granddaughter of Mr. B. P. 
Stubbs, Secretary, who signed the notice in behalf of the Ex- 
ecutive Committee.) 

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, and 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 Csesar'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.

156 Oglethorpe University 

The Academic Department will consist of those who are 
preparing for entrance 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 departments 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 receive 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 warrant 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 ex- 
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 stiggesting 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 boarders as 
they may be able to accommodate. 

By order of the Executive Committee. 

B. P. STUBBS, Secretary.
