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.

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 
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

24 Oglethorpe University 

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 oveT 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 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 

In the faculty of the institution may be found the 
names of men who were world famous. Among these 
were Joseph LeConte, the gi'eat geologist. James 
Woodrow, the brilliant and devoted Christian and sci- 

Oglethorpe University 25 

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, modera- 
tors 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 
reconstruction days and financial disaster made the 
adventure impossible, and after a year and a half of 
struggle the doors were closed for the second time. 

Only twenty-four years have passed since the pres- 
ent movement to re-found the university began and 
they have been years of financial disaster and utter 
turmoil, yet the assets and subscription pledges of 
the institution have passed the sum of one and a half 
million dollars as the result of unusual and self-sac- 
rificing liberality on the part of over five thousand 

The corner 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) . 

26 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 construction goes steadily 
on. All of this has been done in the midst of finan- 
cial disaster that has darkened the spirit of the whole 

The Romance of Her Resurrection 

The story of the resurrection of Oglethorpe reads 
like a romance. Beginning only twenty-four 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 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 

Oglethorpe University 27 

of them giving $1,000 or more to the enterprise; the 
splendid triumph of the Atlanta campaigns; all this 
is well known. Since that time the same wonderful 
record has been maintained. There are now something 
like five thousand men, women and children, all of 
whom have contributed or promised from fifty cents 
to $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 

It will be seen that the architects and landscape 
artists have spared no pains to make Oglethorpe one 
of the really beautiful universities in Amercia. The 
architecture is Collegiate Gothic; the building ma- 
terial is a beautiful blue granite trimmed with lime- 
stone. All the buildings are covered with heavy 
variegated slates. The interior construction is of 
steel, concrete ,brick and hollow tile. The first build- 
ing 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 com- 
pleted 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 build- 
ing 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 

28 OcLEn'HORPE 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 
the institution about which the men who are founding 

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 don- 

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 29 

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 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 WATL. 

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- 
cialists in professional and business life and teachers 
in our high schools and colleges, and to supply the 
gro^^ing 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 investigation. 


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 

Oglethorpe University 31 

and laboratories, the administrative offices and 
lounging room for young ladies attending the college ; 
on the second and third floors, the hospital and dormi- 
tories. Lupton Hall contains the library, the Presi- 
dent's office, class rooms, dormitories, an Assembly 
Hall seating 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 


The University 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 Com- 
merce, 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 generosity of Colonel R. J. Lowry 
and Emma Markham Lowry .

In the Schools of Liberal Arts, Literature and 

Journalism, Science, Business Administration, 

Education, Secretarial Preparation, Fine 

Arts, and Physical Education 

The requirement for entrance to the Academic 
Schools of Oglethori^e University is a certificate of 
graduation from an accredited high school-* Or in 
case of non-graduation, if the candidate has fifteen 
units from an accredited high school he may absolve 
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. 

Prospective students are requested to bring their 
High School certificates with them; better still, to 
have them sent to the Registrar before applying for

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

Persons under twenty years of age desiring to pur- 
sue 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. 


A charge of $1 a day will be made for students 
who register after the time set for registration at 
the beginning of any term (not for the summer ses- 

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.** 

*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 Professional school 
shall give evidence of its ability to meet the standard require- 
ments set up by the State Board of Education. 

Oglethorpe University 35 

(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- 
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- 

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 

(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 ; 

36 Oglethorpe University 

(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; 

(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 

Oglethorpe University 37 

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 
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 

38 Oglethorpe University 

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- 
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 

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. 

Oglethorpe University 39 

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 
such stable sources. The financial status of each col- 
lege should be judged in relation to its educational 

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 

40 Oglethorpe University 

means of an annual appropriation in keeping with the 

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 reg- 
ular students. A notablj^ 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- 

Oglethorpe University 41 

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 

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 
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 hst 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- 

42 Oglethorpe University 

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- 

Student Regulations 


1. Each student will first report to the Dean of the 
school in which he wishes to register. With his 
course and schedule approved by his Dean, the stu- 
dent will present his schedule card to the Registrar. 
He will then record his courses on triplicate cards. 

2. A student is not considered registered until he 
registers his subjects in the Registrar's office, has 
these courses approved by the Registrar, secures a 
bill from the Bursar, and pays the Cashier. 

3. No student is to be admitted to class without 
a student card issued by the Cashier when he has set- 
tled his financial arrangements with the University. 

4. At the beginning of each term, a few days after 
registration, the Registrar sends to each professor 
course cards for each student who has registered. 
Should a student fail to appear in class before the

two weeks allowed for changing, dropping, or adding 
cubjects, the professor is to notify the Registrar im- 
mediately. Failure of the professor to do so does 
not excuse the student from the financial obligation 

5. As soon as course cards are received from the 
Registrar's office, each professor must check his 
roll and report to the Registrar immediately the 
names of any students in his classes for whom he 
does not have a card. 

6. Subjects may be changed, dropped, or added 
only during the first two weeks of each term and 
only upon written permission from the Dean of the 
school in which the student is enrolled. 

7. Students are allowed to register up to one-third 
of the term. It is necessary that a student attend at 
least two-thirds of the term's classes if credit is de- 

8. Each student is required to register in person. 

9. A fine of $1.00 per day (maximum limit one- 
third of the duration of the term concerned) is charg- 
ed for any student who registers after the dates set 
aside for registration as per college calendar. 

10. As it is impossible to know how many hours of 
work each student will register for at the beginning 
of each term, no bills are sent out in advance. The 
student is advised to get an estimate of his expenses 
before the term begins. 

11. Deans of departments can require delinquent 
students to drop specific courses only at the beginning 
of each term. 

44 Oglethorpe University 


As a basis for determining the class to which a 
student shall belong, the following regulation is to 
apply: a first year student must have fulfilled the 
requirements for entrance to his class by one of the 
methods specified. In addition to his entrance units, 
a second year student must have completed fifteen 
year hours; a Junior thirty year hours; and a Senior 
forty-five year hours. Special students will not be 
eligible for admission to either of the four college 
classes, or membership in any of the social fraterni- 
ties or the athletic or forensic teams representing the 
University. A student failing to receive sufficient 
credits during any year to entitle him to enter the 
next higher class must remain in the lower class un- 
til the deficiencies are absolved. Back work in a re- 
quired subject must be made up within the next term ; 
otherwise the student will be excluded from the class 
to which he would naturally belong. 


The average number of hours a week for first year 
students is sixteen to seventeen, and is uniform for 
all schools of the University. The number of hours 
a week for the upperclassmen differs. In order to 
avoid errors in registration all students are required 
to arrange their courses and hours with the Deans of 
the schools which they wish to enter. This also ap- 
plies to special students. 

Freshmen, Sophomores, and Juniors may not take 
more than 18 hours a week unless they have made 
an average of 90 in the previous term. If a student 
wishes to take more than 20 hours, the written con- 

Oglethorpe University 45 

sent of the Dean must be secured, regardless of the 
average made. Seniors are not limited, but the writ- 
ten consent of the Dean must be secured. 

There must be 66 minimum hours of regular stand- 
ard work for every degree. One hour per year may 
be selected by the student from Music, Intramural 
Sports, Football, Debaters' Club, Players' Club and 
work on the Petrel, not on the Yamacraw. The stu- 
dent must register and pay for these, and they must 
be certified to by the professor. 


For a supplemental examination, whether on ac- 
count of failure to pass or absence from the Univer- 
sity, the student is to pay a fee of $2.00, receipt for 
which must be secured from the Cashier and pre- 
sented to the professor before the examination is 
given. The examination must be taken in the term 
following the regular term. In case the student is 
out of school one or more terms, he may take it in the 
term in which he returns. If the examination grade 
is below 50, the student is not entitled to a re-exami- 


A student who is absent five times in one course 
in any given term shall be called to account by the 
professor in charge, and in the event he cannot sub- 
mit a valid reason for such absences, he shall be re- 
ported to the Dean of the school in which he is work- 
ing. All absences shall be recorded by the Registrar, 
and if a student accumulates 20 unexcused absences 
from classes or eight absences from Assembly in a 
term, he shall be required by the Dean of his school 

46 Oglethorpe University 

to take an additional hour of work before being rec- 
ommended to the Faculty for graduation. 


A student who is failing in any of his courses 
during a term will be given personal warning, and a 
letter will be written to his parent or guardian by 
the Dean of his school or the Registrar. If a stu- 
dent be seriously behind he may be required to with- 
draw from the University. 

A student failing on one-half of his hours for two 
successive terms will be required to withdraw from 
the University.

Courses of Instruction and 
Requirements For Degrees 

In the session of 1937-38 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 

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. ~ 

48 Oglethorpe University 

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, engin- 
eering 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 Secretarial Preparation; those who expect 
to teach, the A.B. course in Education. 

^^Tiile 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 

Oglethorpe University 49 

marks attained at the close of the term in the College 
Division 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 a 
student appears to be about ready for graduation, he 
will be recommended to the Faculty by the Dean of 
his department, for a final, comprehensive examina- 
tion on not less than fifteen hours to be specified by 
the Dean. 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 him 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. 
Correspondence credits will be accepted to 25 per 
cent of the total requirements for the degree. 

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

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

50 Oglethorpe University 

The Atlanta School System has asked that teachers 
take work only on Friday and Saturday, not definite- 
ly 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- 

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, from the last two years of 
their course. When these examinations have been 
successfully passed the candidate is required to stand 
an oral examination of the same general comprehen- 
sive 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

University Expenses 


No charges are made for the usual College fees 
such as matriculation, laboratories, infirmary, library, 
contingent, and student activities. 

The charge for tuition is $80.00 per term, $240.00 
per academic year of approximately nine months. For 
this sum a student is entitled to take from 12 to 17 
credit hours of work per week. No student is per- 
mitted to take less than 12 hours per week and those 
students who take more than 17 credit hours per week 
are required to pay for the extra hours at the rate of 
$15.00 per hour. These sums are payable in cash in 
advance, at the beginning of each term, but the Cash- 
ier is given the authority, when a student has proven 
that his credit is good, to allow that student to pay one 
half of the charges at the beginning of the term and 
the other half on or before a date which the Cashier 
will set and which will not be later than the middle of 
the term. This means of paying tuition fees is ap- 
plicable also to charges for board and room rent. 

In the Extension Department, charges are $15.00 
per hour, subject to one third discount to teachers. 
The summer school charges for 1937 are the same as 
Extension charges. No charge will be made for room 
rent during the summer term to any student taking six 
credit hours for the entire summer term or three cre- 
dit hours for a half-summer term, and who boards 
at the college cafeteria, ($72.00 for the entire summer 
term or $36.00 for the first half.) This free room 
rent applies only to teachers in active service. Re- 
lations and friends who do not attend college classes 
may board in the dormitories by paying the regular 
room rent and board charges. 

52 Oglethorpe University 

Students holding self help positions are not allowed 
any additional discount on bills or permitted to hold 
any other self help job or scholarships. This does not 
include N.Y.A. Scholarships. 

Board and Room Rent 

The dormitory facilities of Oglethorpe University 
are among the safest and most comfortable of those 
of cognate institutions in America. All permanent 
buildings of the University will be like those no--^- 
tinished, which are believed to be entirely fireproof, 
being constructed of steel, concrete, and granite 
with partitions of brick and hollow tile. 

The rates named 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 


Oglethorpe University 53 

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) 
ro 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 : 

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 $72 to $80 for the Autumn term, and $60 to 
$70 for the Spring and Winter terms, to suit the 
varying requirements of the students. This is fur- 
nished in the form of meal tickets. Additional tickets 
may be purchased by the student if desired. No re- 
bate is given on unus«rd meal tickets, and no transfer 
of use of meal tickets from one term to another is 
allowed. 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 particular attention of the student 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 minimum charge for them is $72.00 for the 
Autumn term, and $60.00 for the Spring and Winter 
terms, and is not subject to rebate of any kind on 


54 Oglethorpe University 

account of 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 
cafeteria 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 
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 
for delayed registration of Winter and Spring terms. 
Tf a student attends a single class, or occupies a dor- 
mitory 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. 

The minimum charges for board and room rent 
are set at figures which years of experience have in- 
dicated to be suitable to the average student. This 
is especially true of board which is set low to suit 
many students that so desire it. Those whose re- 
quirements are greater are expected to purchase ex- 
tra tickets. 

Oglethorpe University 55 

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. 

Caution Deposit 

A deposit of $5.00 is required of all boarding stu- 
dents and $2.50 for non-boarding students, upon reg- 
istration, 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, in the opinion of the officers of the college, was 
done by the students. 


A penalty of $1.00 will be charged each student 
moving articles of furniture from one room to an- 
other without permission from either the Bursar's of- 
fice or the Cashier's office. This fine will also be 
charged any student changing his room without per- 
mission from the office. 

A fine of $1.00 a day (up to one-third of the term) 
will be charged for late registration, Winter and 
Spring terms. 

A fine of $5.00 is charged if any student attends 
a class or examination without registration. 


The University maintains at all times an excellent 

56 Oglethorpe University 

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 
render. This includes accidents and injuries arising 
from participation in inter-collegiate sports, in which 
case a special consideration is offered as specified else- 

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 
special rate by the Atlanta Baggage and Cab Co- In 
using the latter method mention should always be 

Oglethorpe University 57 

made of the special students' rate at the time the 
order is given. 

Students arriving at any of the Railway or Bus 
terminals in Atlanta may board "Oglethorpe" street 
cars at the points listed below. This method of trans- 
portation 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) and board the street car. 

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. 

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 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. Local 

58 Oglethorpe University 

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. Write for bulletin of Sum- 
mer Session. 

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, 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 
institution- The candidate must carry an aggregate 
of fifteen hours of graduate work, with at least two 
Professors. Transfer credits (maximum 3 hours) 
will be allowed. The work must be of graduate 
grade, and must be approved by the Dean of the Grad- 
uate School. 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 
munt have attained the highest academic degree offer- 

Oglethorpe University 59 

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) 
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 t>'-; Faculty Committee upon a 
subject approved by tnem and filed with the Committee 
not less than ten days before the date of graduation.

Three additional hours may be taken in lieu of a the- 

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


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 

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

Oglethorpe University 61 

3 — Willful destruction of or damage to University- 

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 to warn all those taking part 
in it to guard their votes against the influence of per- 
sonal prejudice. Only the best interests of the stu- 
dents and the good of the institution are to be consid- 

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 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 modern. 

No Latin is required for entrance or for gradua- 
tion. But at least one year of Latin is very desirable 
for the better understanding of English words and 
English grammar. Such a course may be taken in 

Considerable variety is possible in following the 
Curriculum on page 66, as there are two sections 
of English 3, three in Spanish 3, and the languages 
may be taken in almost any order. But this arrange- 
ment should be followed in the main to avoid conflict 
of classes in the later years. Each student in the 
Liberal Arts course should consult the Dean at the 
very beginning and have his work mapped out for 
the whole four years. 

At least one year of German and one year of 
French will be required either in High School or in 

Any subject that has been taken in High School 
must be replaced by an elective. 


Latin 111-2-3. For entrance into this class the stu-

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- 
ried on throughout the year. Elective. Three hours.

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

William Oli\^r Ste\^ns, Acting Dean 

This course leads to the degree of bachelor of arts, 
and aims at providing a general liberal education, 
stressing the literary and other cultural subjects. 
Latin is not required for entrance, but two or three 
years of Latin are desirable. 

The work in English in the college division has the 
two-fold purpose of giving students command over 
the use of their own tongue in both speaking and 
writing, and of familiarizing them with the best in 
English literature. The summer courses, though not 
identical with the winter ones, are similar, thus en- 
abling a student to complete a part of his requirements 
for a degree in the summer term. 


English 111-2-3. Composition and Literature. The 

purpose of this required Freshman course in English is 
to combine the reading of examples of modern prose 
and poetry with practice in composition, both writ- 
ten and oral. The chief object of the course is to 
teach students to express themselves correctly, clear- 
ly, and effectively. Continual emphasis is laid on 
increasing the store of words. A vocabulary test is 
given at the beginning of the fall term, and a second 
one at the end of the spring term, to show each stu- 
dent what progress he has made. For those Fresh- 
men who are shown to be in need of special work in 
the fundamentals, a remedial section is formed dur- 
ing the fall term for drill in spelHng, punctuation, 
and grammar. No college credit will be given for 

Oglethorpe University 71 

this work, but as soon as a student makes sufficient 
progress he may be given an opportunity to enter a 
regular Freshman section. No student will be per- 
mitted to take any advanced studies in this depart- 
ment until he has made a satisfactory record in Fresh- 
man English. Three hours. 

English 141-2-3. English Bible. Old Testament. 
Two hours. 

English 211-2-3. English Literature to 1800. Pre- 
requisite, English 111-2-3. This required course for 
Sophomores is a survey of English literature from 
Beowulf to Wordsworth. The selections are studied 
with special reference to their historical backgrounds. 
Students are given frequent practice in composition. 
They are required to use the library on special assign- 
ments, and they learn to take notes from lectures. 
In the study of the different examples of literature, 
types and forms are analyzed, including the simple 
elements of versification. Three hours. 

English 251-2-3. English Bible. New Testament. 
Two 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 
a sectarian point of view, or as mere history or liter- 
ature. The aim will bd to impart such a knowledge 
of the subject as every intelligent man should possess, 
enabling him to read his Bible with pleasure and 

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

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

of the basic subjects including accounting, finance,

the problems and questions that arise in relation to 
the American States, and to explain the functioning 
of that unique political body. Open only to those who

the World Court, the League of Nations. Prerequi- 
site : At least two years of history and one in Politi- 
cal Science. Offered each Spring term. One hour. 

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

An inquiry into the evolution of music from the ear- 
liest 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 in- 
tellectual and scientific, the main object is to cultivate 
increased appreciation of its beauty and of its power 
as an instrument of expression. The course will intro- 
duce simple and primitive forms with explanations 
and illustrations. This will be followed in proper se- 
quence by the folk songs, the dance form, the suite, 

104 Oglethorpe University 

grand opera, oratorio, and the symphony. Attention 
will be given to instrumentation and the development 
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- 

Sociology 411-2-3. A comprehensive outline of the 
subject embracing such topics as the evolution of the 
more important social ideals and institutions and their 
present status; socialism and social control; social 
pathology and methods of social investigation, and an 
estimation of progress. An examination of the prin- 
ciples of the subject with some attempt to give the 
student a first hand insight by means of visits to in- 
stitutions, exercises, questions for debate and the pre- 
paration of special studies in social problems. A re- 
quired course in the School of Education and Secre- 
tarial Preparation. Elective to others. Open only to 
third and fourth year students. Three times a week 
throughout the year. Three hours. 

Cosmic History 411-2-3 by President Jacobs. In 

the endeavor to give the graduates of the University 
a course that will co-ordinate the knowledge they have 
obtained on 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 the story of human life follow- 
ing the broad outlines of Astronomy, Geology, Paleon- 
tology, Embryology, Anthropology and Archaeology. 
The course closes with a study of the first ten chap- 

Oglethorpe University 105 

ters of Genesis in relation to modern discoveries. It 
is especially designed to give the graduates of Ogle- 
thorpe University a conception of the harmony be- 
tween religion and modern science and is required of 
all fourth year students. It is believed that this work 
of co-ordination of modern science with religion can 
best be done in the fourth year class, to the end that 
in harmonizing the truths learned their faith may 
not be unsettled. One hour. 

Sociology 501-2-3. Marriage. Not a sensational 
course. Presentation of the proper relationships in

Manners. This course is designed to provide a 

Oglethorpe University 


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 situations, 
and feel ashamed to ask. Still more are unconscious 
of the fact that they are doing the wrong things and 
exposing themselves to criticism whenever they do. 
Accordingly, it is an important and practical 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 uni- 
versity 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 

John William Patrick, 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 and coaches in other 
schools, colleges 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 

Oglethorpe University 113 

by written tests given upon 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. Three hours. 

An introductory course not requiring previous 
knowledge of the subject. 

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

Biology 331-2-3. Kinesiology. Prerequisite: Biol- 
ogy 231-2-3. Three lectures weekly throughout the 
year, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday at 8:30 A.M.

site: Biology 331-2-3. Three lectures weekly through- 
out the year, Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 10 :30 
A.M. Three hours. 

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 

The purpose of the intramural department is to en- 
courage every student to participate in some or all 

114 Oglethorpe University 

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- 

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 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. Too 
much emphasis cannot be placed on this particular 
phase of athletics.

Scholarships for Athletics 

We are constantly receiving inquiries from pros- 
peotive 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 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 

116 Oglethorpe University 

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- 

Rules for Eligibility of Players in Inter-Collegiate 
Sports 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 
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, permit the payment of any moneys for 

Oglethorpe University 117 

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 tuition, 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. 

118 Oglethorpe University 

Extension Division 

H. J. Gaertner, Dean 

The work is largely planned for those working for 
Bachelor's or Master's Degrees. Accordingly, Ogle- 
thorpe will date the educational history of each stu- 
dent and plan the work necessary for graduation. 

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, 6 year 
hours; Foreign Language, 5 or 6 year hours; Educa- 
tion, 12 year hours; Enghsh, 6 year hours; History, 3 
year hours. 

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 62 year hours of accept- 
able credits. A minimum of fifteen year hours must 
be taken in Oglethorpe University. 

For a detailed statement of the subjects offered, 
see page 96 of this catalogue. 

The Master's degree is based on the Bachelor's de- 
gree. The minimum requirement for the Master's is 
fifteen year hours. 

A thesis, approved by the thesis committee, is also 
required. If the student wishes, however, he may 
take 3 year hours additional in lieu of a thesis. 

In addition to the Extension Division, Oglethorpe 
University offers a Summer Quarter divided into two 
terms of 5i/^ weeks each. Concentrating intensively 

Oglethorpe University 119 

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. 

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. 

Tuition is payable by the term (or year hour) in 
advance. However, arrangements can be made to di- 
vide this into two payments per term.

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 toward 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, 
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. A Fencing team has been 
organized and is being coached by Mr. Heyl Tebo. 
Work on Hermance Stadium has begun and a section 
is finished providing accommodations for five thou- 
sand spectators 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 

124 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. 


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 

Oglethorpe University 125 

valuable reference works in special departments. The 
private libraries of Dr. Aldrich 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 1937-38 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. During the last three 
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 
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 


Oglethorpe University 

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."

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 

Located in the commercial and educational capital 
of the South, with an unrivaled climate, on the most 
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 fishing, 
the physical advantages offered by Oglethorpe Univ- 
ersity are unsurpassed anywhere in the section. 

128 Oglethorpe University 

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

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 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.

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 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 those 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 

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 without them. 

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

This is the special work of the silent faculty at

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 

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 postof fice, 
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- 
tative women of the city of Atlanta at the home 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 

OGLiyrHORPE University 131 

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 committee 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 committees 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 
laws of Georgia in preparation for handling funds 
donated or bequeathed to the University through the 
Woman's Board. 

Officers and Chairmen of the various committees 
for the year 1936-37 are as follows : 

President, Mrs., Willis Westmoreland; 1st Vice-

as may be determined by the governing body; to enforce good 
order, receive donations, make purchases, and effect all alien- 
ations of realty and personalty, not for the purpose of trade

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

sary for the successful accomplishment of its purpose as a

dence of indebtedness incurred or which may be incurred in

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

hereafter be, allowed a corporation of similar character under 
the laws of Georgia.

3. That at a regular meeting of the duly authorized of-

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

Oglethorpe University 163 

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 vnll 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 

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 boarders as 
they may be able to accommodate. 

By order of the Executive Committee.
