The Government of the University 
Board of Founders* 

The details of the management of Oglethorpe Uni- 
versity are handled by an Executive Cmmittee 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 combine 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

Oglethorpe University 25 

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 Coll'ege was founded in New Jersey and 
rapidly became the institution largely patronized by 
the young men from Presbyterian families all over 
the world. After a while the long distance which 
must be traveled by stage or 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 
th"e year 1823, and eventuated in the founding of a 
manual training school, and this in turn, became 
Oglethorpe College in 1835 when Midway Hill, in the 
suburbs of Milledgeville, 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 betw^een 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 buiding 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 great geologist, James 
Woodrow, the brilliant and devoted Christian and sci- 
entist, Samuel K. Talmadge, the eminent administra- 

26 Oglethorpe University 

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 wh^en 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 des- 
troyed. 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 w'ere closed for the second time. 

Only twenty-six 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 pledgees 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 th'e Dead). 

Oglethorpe University 27 

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 limiestone, covered with variegated 
slates and as near fire proof as human skill can make 
it, was ready for occupancy in th^e 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-six 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 mten 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 Galves- 
ton, 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 

28 Oglethorpe University 

is well known. Since that time the same wonderful 
record has be'en 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 he seen that the architects and landscape 
artists have spared no pains to make Oglethorpe one 
of the really beautiful universities of America. The 
architecture is Collegiate Gothic; the building ma- 
terial is a beautiful blue granite trimmed with lime- 
stone. All the buildings are covered with heav>' 
variegat'ed slates. The interior construction is of 
steel, concrete, brick and hollow tile. The 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 land and the land- 
scape 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 
campuses in the entire world. In the summer of 1929 
Mr. Hearst gave to the University the entire Silver 

Oglethorpe University 29 

Lake Estates, four hundred acres of primeval forest 
surrounding an eighty acre lake with something like 
five miles of graded roads winding through it. Aa 
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 develop- 
ment 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 
Hermande 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 thie 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 are most concerned, it is the spiritual and 
intellectual life of their university. To that end they 

30 Oglethorpe University 

have resolved to maintain a faculty and a curriculum 
that will be of the highest possible quality, their 
thought being excellence in every department. They 
are taking the superb traditions of the Old Ogle- 
thorpe and adding the best of the present age to them. 

Founders' Book 

In the Founders' Room at Oglethorp*e 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 dded 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 cam- 
pus in Georgia. Concerts on the chimes are given 

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, 

Oglethorpe University 31 

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 
growing demand for specially lequipped 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. 

Grounds and Buildings 

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. 

In front of the entrance to the campus is the term- 
inus of the Oglethorpe University street car line, and 
an attractive little stone station of the Southern Rail- 
way main line between Atlanta and Washington. The 
first building to be located on the campus, the Ad- 
ministration Building, contains in the basement a din- 
ing room; on the ground floor, chemistry and physics 
lecture rooms, and laboratories, the administrative 
offices and lounging room for young ladies attending 
the college ; on the second and third floors, the hospi- 
tal and dormitories. Lupton Hall contains the libra- 
ry, the President's office, class rooms, dormitories, an 
Assembly Hall seating approximately six hundred, 
equipped also as a theatre for the presentation of stu- 

32 Oglethorpe University 

dent dramas, and in the basement, basketball court, 
swimming- pool, lockers and showers, and quarters 
or the University Press. The University Press is 
equipped with a Babcock optimus press, linotype ma- 
chine and two job presses, with a number of type 
stands and other printing equipment given by a friend 
of the University. 

Lowry Hall houses the Lowry School of Banking 
and Commerce, and the Art Studios. It is largely a 
replica of old Corpus Christi College, Oxford, the 
alma mater of James Edward Oglethorpe, It contains 
class rooms and dormitories, and will stand as a per- 
petual memorial to the generosity of Colonel R. J. 
LovvTy 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 Oglethorpe 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 
Mathematics. A student who has completed in a sec- 
ondary school two years of a foreign language will 
not receive credit for a beginner's course in the same 
language. 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. 

Oglethorpe University 38 

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

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 v>^ek. 

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: 

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

Oglethorpe Uistivebsity 35 

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

(b) A basis for preparing an aproved 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 tenter- 
prise to be begun, nor for a worthy institution now 
in operation to be denied a fair opportunity for de- 

It is, therefore, agreted 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 stndards within three ytears 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 theste 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: 

** 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. 

36 Oglethorpe University 

(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 mor<e 
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 satisfi'ed. 

3. Graduation: 

A college shall require for graduation the comple- 

Oglethorpe University 37 

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 quahtative 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 p^er- 
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 
cr^edits (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 

38 Oglethorpe University 

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 should have 
not less than onte 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 graduafe 
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 n'et 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 si>ecifically 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 

40 Oglethorpe University 

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 stud^ents 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 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 d'egrees, 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 
encouragement of efficiency, initiative and originality 
in investigation and teaching, the tone of the institu- 
tion, including the existence and cultur^e of good mor- 
als and ideals, and satisfaction and enthusiasm among 

Oglethorpe University 41 

students and staff shall be factors in determining its 

16. Extra-Ciirricular Activities: 

The proper administration of athletics, student 
publications, student organizations, and all extra-cur- 
ricular 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 instiution has, in addition to the college 
of arts and sciences, professional or technical depart- 
ments, the colleges of arts and sciences shall not be 
accepted for the approved list of the State Department 
of Education untess 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 thtereafter, 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- 

42 Oglethorpe University 

stitution in Georgia to be inspected and fully accred-

tion of the above Standards, following the approval 
of them by all the educational institutions in the com- 

General Information 


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 R'egistrar'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 thfe 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 
ten days allowed for changing, dropping, or adding 
subjects, 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 

Oglethorpe University 43 

only during the first ten days 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 stud<ent 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 expense 
before the term begins. 

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

12. In the Summer School students must register 
within six days of the beginning of each term. 


A charge of $1 a day will be made for students 
who register after the time set for registration at 
the beginning of the winter and spring terms. 


As a basis for determining the classes to which a 
student shall belong, the following r*egulation 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, 

44 Oglethorpe University 

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 low^r 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 sp'ecial students. 

Freshmen, Sophomores, and Juniors may not take 
more than 18 hours a week unless they have made 
an average of B with no grade below C in the previous 
term. If a student wishes to take more than 20 hours, 
the written consent of the Dean must be secured, re- 
gardtess of the average made. Seniors are not limi- 
ted, but the written consent of the Dean must be se- 

There must be 66 minimum year hours (198 term 
hours) of regular standard work for every degree. 
One hour per year may be selected by the student from 
Music, Intramural Sports, Football, Debaters' Club, 

Oglethorpe University 45 

Players' Club and work on the Pfetrel, not on the 
Yamacraw. The student must register in advance and 
pay for these, and they must be certified to by the 
professor in charge. 


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 grade is F, or below, 
the student is not entitled to a re-examination. A fine 
of $5 is imposed upon any student taking a re-exami- 
nation without having paid this $2 fee in advance. 


A student accumulating a total of ten unexcu^d 
absences from all classes in one term will forfeit one 
hour of credit and two quality points. A total of four 
absences in one term from the Tuesday morning As- 
sembly carries the same penalty. 

All absences concerning illness are to be referred to 
and approved by Miss Feebeck, head of the infirmary. 
Absences concerning college affairs are to be referred 
to and approved by Dean Patrick. Reports on absen- 
ces are to be filed in the Registrar's office, and stu- 
dents are not to be excused by any other faculty mem- 

Excused absences are those caused by illness, ab- 
sence from classes on account of college duties, or for 
other reasons approved by the Dean. 

46 Oglethorpe University 

Excuses for absences must be filed in the Regis- 
trar's office by the Monday afternoon following the 
week in which the absences occurred. 

Continued and deliberate cutting of classes may in- 
volve dismissal from the University, 

Absences will be counted from the first regular class 
session, whether the student is enrolled at the time or 
not, unless excused by the Dean. 


A student who is failing in any of his courses dur- 
ing a term will be given personal warning, and a let- 
ter will be written to his parent or guardian by the 
Dean of his school or th'e Registrar. If a student be 
seriously behind he may be required to withdraw from 
the University. 

A student must pass at least 50 per cent of his work 
each term ; failure for two successive terms shall auto- 
matically cause the student to be dropped, provided 
however that if such student has registered for the en- 
suing term he may continue until the completion 
thereof, and if he shall have exhibited a marked im- 
provement in his studies, the Dean of his department 
may recommend to th'e faculty the continuance of such 


No withdrawals from the University can be consid- 
ered as duly authorized unless a student officially not- 
ifies the Dean of the University at the time of with- 
drawal. Mere absence from school or nonattendance 
upon any classes cannot be construed as definite with- 
drawal. If the reasons for withdrawal are acceptable 
to the Dean, the student's withdrawal is approved, re- 

Oglethorpe University 47 

corded, and dated ; and the student is entitled to "hon- 
orable dismissal." 

Courses of Instruction and 
Requirements for Degrees 

In the session of 1939-40 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 satisfactorily 
completing a four years' course as outlined below, 
based largely on the study of the languages. The de- 
gree 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 Journalism will 
be given to those students who complete a course in- 
cluding work in languages, literature and journalism. 
The degree of Bachelor of Arts in Commerce will be 
conferred upon those stulents who satisfactorily com- 
plete a full four years' course in studies r*elating par- 
ticularly to business administration. The degree of 
Bachelor of Arts in Education will be conferred upon 
those students who complete the studies in the School 
of Education. The degree of Bachelor of Arts in S^ec- 
retarial Preparation will be conferred upon those stu- 
dents who complete the studies in that School. 

The degree of Bachelor of Arts in the Fine Arts 
will be given to those students who compMe 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 Educa- 
tion will be given to those students specializing in that 

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 g'eneral, 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, engineering 
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 in- 
tend to spend their li\*es in the business world, the 
A.B. course in Commerce, or the A.B. course in Secre- 
tarial Preparation; those who expect to teach, the 
A.B. course in Education, 

While each of these courses is so shapted 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 necfessary 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. 

Quality Points, Credits, Graduation 

The following system of Quality Points has been 
adopted : 

Superior A (90-99) — 3 quality points for each year 

Good B (80-89) — 2 quality points for each year 

Fair C (70-79) — 1 quality point for each year hour. 

Passing D (60-69) — no quality points. 

Condition E (50-59) — re-examination allowed. 

Failure F (below 50) — no re-examination. 

Inc. — Incomplete. 

Oglethorpe University 49 

In the junior division of the college 30 quality points 
must have been achieved befor'e the student is recog- 
nized as being in the senior division. The student 
lacking the required 30 points will be required to re- 
main in the junior college until the needed quality 
points have been achieved through further studies. 
For graduation in the senior college the student must 
have achieved 30 additional quality points in senior 
college studies, or a total of 60 quality points for 
graduation and the degree. Transfer students must 
achieve 15 quality points for each year spent in study 
in Oglethorpe University. 

On and after September 1, 1938 no fractional cred- 
its mad-e either in Oglethorpe University or by tran- 
script from another institution will be recognized for 
graduation in any freshman or sophomore subject. 

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 and extension credits combined 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 thfe 
State of Georgia. 

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


No credit is granted a student for any course in 
which he was not formally registered, nor for any 
course that was not either published in the University 
Catalogue or at least officially reported and approved 

50 Oglethorpe University 

by the Dean of the School and recorded in the Regis- 
trar's office. 

Candidates for graduation must file with the Regis- 
trar, at Jeast a month before the time of graduation, 
a written application, by filling out a blank form pre- 
pared for the purpose. 

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 we'ek 
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, whten 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 th« 
middle of the term. This means of paying tuition 
fees is applicable also to charges for board and room 

In the Extension Department, charges are $15.00 
per credit-hour, subject to one-third discount to teach- 
>ers. The summer school charges for 1939 are the same 
as Extension charges. No charge will be made for room 
rent during the summer term to any student taking 

Oglethorpe University 51 

six credit hours for the entire summer term or three 
credit 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. 
Relatives and friends who do not attend college class- 
es may board in the dormitories by paying the regu- 
lar room rent and board charges. 

Students holding self help positions are not aliowted 
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 Am'erica. All permanent 
buildings of the University Mdll 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 are based upon two grades of 
rooms. The first of these compris'es the entire third 
floor of the Administration Building, the third floor 
of Lupton Hall, and the second and third floors of 
Lowry Hall, divided into individual rooms, with gen- 
eral toilet and bath on the same floor. Each room 
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 bed- 
rooms with connecting baths. The price charged in- 
cludes first class board, steam heat and electric 
lights, water and janitor's service; all rooms are fur- 
nished adequately and substantially. Every room in 

52 Oglethorpe University 

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 r'eservation 
of room inclose $5.00 reservation fee (non-returnable) 
to be credited on first payment for room rent. 

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

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

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 vary- 
ing requirements of the students. This is furnished 
in the form of meal tickets. Additional tickets may 
be purchased by the student if desired. No r*ebate is 
given on unused meal tickets, and no transfer of use 
of meal tickets from one term to another is allowed. 
The University assumes no responsibility for, and will 
not replace, any m'eal tickets which may be lost or 
mutilated. All charges are payable in advance by 
the term, of approximately eleven weeks as per col- 
lege calendar, and no rebate is allowed for any rea- 

Oglethorpe University 53 

son. 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 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. 
If 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 
ar<e set at figures which years of experience have in- 
dicated to be suitable to the average student. This 

54 Ogleithorpe University 

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. 

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 furnish'es a liberal assort- 
ment of food at moderate prices, varying with the 
Atlanta market. 

Contingent Fee 

A contingent fee of $3.00 per term (non return- 
able) is charged to cover intra-mural and intercollegi- 
ate athletic expenses, breakages, damages to property 
and similar minor losses due to students. This fee 
will be raised or lowered in proportion to the expenses 
sustained by the University, as above. 


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, which in- 
cludes payment of charges. 

Oglethorpe University 5i 


The University maintains at all times an excellent 
infirmary, with a nurse in attendance, for the prompt 
treatment of accidents and of such cases of sickness 
as may occur. By this means prolonged and serious 
illness can often be prevented. There is a University 
physician who can be s'ecured 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 fr'equently 
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 

56 Oglethorpe University 

using the latter method mention should always be 
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 b'elow. 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 tokens for thirty cents. These 
tokens 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. 

Ail summer cours'es 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 

Oglethorpe University 57 

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 high- 
est grad'es 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 year 
hours) will be allowed. The work must be of gradu- 
ate grade, and must be approved by the Dean of the 
Graduate School and the Registrar. In addition a the- 
sis is required. But the degree is not guaranteed at 
the end of a fixed period of time. A certain amount 
of work must be accomplished, and the quality of it 
must be such as to satisfy the professors concerned 
and the whole faculty. 

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 

58 Oglethorpe University 

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 sub- 
ject 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. Three additional hours may be taken in 
lieu of a thesis. 

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

Oglethorpe University 59 


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 
demoralizing 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 pres- 
ident 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 
definitely 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 

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- 

60 Oglethorpe University 

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 subse- 
quent term, this with no implication of expulsion but 
to me'et the standards adopted for our students. 

The President of the University is directed to sup- 
ervise the balloting 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 

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 suspen- 
sion or expulsion. All contracts and agreements made 
with the students by the University are subject to 
the above conditions for continued attendance. 

The Faculty and Administrative Officers of the 
University reserve to themselves the right to make 
any changes in any of the rules or regulations con- 
tained herein or to change any of the textbooks or 
other study material which they may deem advisable 
at any time. Notice of any change posted on the reg- 
ular Bulletin Board maintained by the University shall 
he sufficient.

School of Liberal Arts 

Leading- to the degree of Bachelor of Arts 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 68, as there are two sections 
of English 1, two in Spanish 1, 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 College. 

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- 
dents are expected to have had at least three years of 
high school Latin. They must be able to translate Eng- 
lish into Latin with some facility. Livy and Horace 
will be studied in this year. Prose composition, both 
oral and written, will be carried on throughout the 
year. Elective. Three hours. 

62 Oglethorpe University 

Latin 211-2-3. The studies in this class will be in 
Tacitus and Juvenal. Twice a week throughout the 
year. Elective. Two hours. 

Latin 311-2-3. This class will take up such authors 
as the class may need. This cours'e may be arranged 
for those who wish to teach Latin. Twice a week 
throughout the year. Elective. Two hours. 


Greek 111-2-3. Preparatory. This course is designed 
not merely for those who have no previous knowledge 
of the language, but also for those whose preparation 
is inadequate. The most important subjects, both in 
inflection and syntax, are presented early in the course 
and then, by a system of weekly reviews, are kept 
constantly fresh. 

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

Greek 211-2-3. The preparation for entrance into 
this class is not so much a matter of time as of tho- 
roughness. The student is expected to know the ordi- 
nary Attic inflections and syntax, to have read about 
one book of the Anabasis, and to have had consider- 
able practice in translating English into Greek. 

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

Written translations of English into Greek are re- 
quired once a week. On the other days a short oral 
exercise of this kind forms a part of the lesson; so 
that in each recitation some practice is had in trans- 
lating English into Greek. Elective. Two hours. 

Text-Books: Xenophon's Anabasis (Goodwin and 
White), Memorabilia, Adam's Lysias, Goodwin's 

Oglethorpe University 63 

Greek Grammar, Pearson's Greek Prose Composition, 
Myers's Eastern Nations and Greece, Liddell and 
Scott's Greek Lexicon (unabridged.) 

Greek 311-2-3. In the first term Demosthenes will 
be read; in the second, Herodotus; in the third. Ho- 
mer. Elective. Two hours. 

Graduate Courses in Latin and Greek 

511-2-3. Those who are thinking of taking gradu- 
ate courses are advised to write to the President or 
to tb!e Professor, that their preliminary studies may 
be so guided as to fit them for the work. The re- 
quirements for entrance into these courses are given 
elsewhere in this catalogue, under the head of Grad- 
uate School.

School of Literature and Journalism 

Robert L. Ormsby, 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 vmt- 
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 spelling, punctuation, 
and grammar. No college credit will be given for 

70 Oglethorpe University 

this work, but as soon as a student makes sufficient 
progress he may be given an opportunity to enter a 
regular Freshman s'ection. 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. The staff. 

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. The staff. 

English 221-2-3. Journalism. Required of all stu- 
dents in the School of Literature and Journalism, but 
not open to Freshmen. This is a practical course, with 
laboratory periods, devoted to the study of modern 
newspaper and magazine make-up. Students practice 
every aspect of newswriting and feature-writing. 
Professor Link and Mr. Sutcliffe. 

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

English 251-2-3. English Bible. New Testament. 

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 wiU be to impart such a knowledg^e 
of the subject as every intelligent man should possess, 

Oglethorpe University 71 

enabling him to read his Bible with pleasure and 
profit. An effort will be made to give 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. Two hours. 
Dean Nicolassen. 

English 311-2-3. The Modern Essay. Prerequisites, 
English 111-2-3 and 211-2-3. This is a course open 
to Juniors and Seniors, especially those who hope to 
do professional writing. It centers about the con- 
temporary magazine and newspaper article. One of 
the primary objects of the course is to introduce the 
student to contemporary ideas, especially those that 
are revolutionizing the world today. Articles are 
read, analyzed and discussed, and frequent practice 
is given in the cPear and orderly presentation of 
thought. Special emphasis is laid on essay structure. 

It is an axiom of this department, and of this course 
in particular, that the best preparation for journalism 
is not the learning of trade tricks for writing copy 
but the power to use good English combined with 
the background of a cultural education. Three hours. 
Dean Ormsby.

the origin of English words d'erived from Greek and 
Latin, especially scientific terms. Students looking

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

of covering fully the practical details and routine and 
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

School of Education 

H. J. Gaertner, Dean 

Leading to the Degree of Bachelor of Arts in 


The School of Education is both an undergraduate 
and also a graduate school. A number of graduates 
from such schools in Oglethorpe University as well as 
other colleges have entered the teaching profession. 
Much of the work being psychological and humanis- 
tic, the discipline of this school is a preparation for 
various lines of work beside that of teaching. The 
school is a good preparation for dealing with all forms 
of human contact sides of life work. We especially 
recommend the courses in shorthand and typewriting 
to be taken as part of the electives in the third or 
fourth year or earlier by students preparing for sec- 
retarial careers, or commercial teaching in high 

Students in the Department of Education upon en- 
tering the University Division (third and fourth 
years) or previously thereto, are required to desig- 
nate the subject which they expect to teach, which 
thereby becomes their major subject. From nine to 
twelve year hours of college work are required of 
them in said subject for graduation, or, by special 
permission of the Dean of the School of Education, in 
two closely related subjects. 

The school of Adult Education has been and is giv- 
ing a variety of courses to meet the needs of teach- 
ers. In order to conform to the measurement of most 
schools of this type after September 1, 1939, we shall 
use the "course plan." All subjects will be adjusted 

Oglethorpe University 95 

to this plan. The regular students, however, will con- 
tinue the "hour" plan. 

Education 111-2-3. Orientation in Education. In

problem of education. 

Education 331-2-3. Mental Hygiene. In this course 
the student investigates many causes for mental fail- 
ures, the problems of happiness in living, causes of 
abnormal mentality and the general way in which the 
normal mind is formed. 

Education 341-2-3. Principles of Secondary Edu- 
cation. A study of the historical development of the 
secondary school with reference to purposes and cur- 
riculum; objectives of secondary education; relation 
of the high school to the community ; adaptation of 
curricula and subject matter to individual differ- 
■ences; organization and supervision; school manage-

For Adult Education Students 

During the last few j^ears a variety of educational 
subjects have been off'ered at the request of our Adult 
Education Students. These will vary with the needs 
and wishes of the student. In each instance the course 
will be planned by the Dean of the School and the 
Registrar. A total of nine courses, together with an 
approved thesis, will be required for the Master of 

98 Oglethorpe University 

Arts in Education. For the degree of Bachelor of 
Arts 36 courses are required. 

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, 3 courses ; 
Foreign Language, 3 courses ; Education, 6 courses ; 
English, 3 courses ; Social Science, 3 courses ; elec- 
tives, 18 courses. 

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 36 courses of acceptable 
credits. A minimum of 9 courses must be taken in 
Oglethorpe University. The Course System will be 
used in 1939-40. 

The Master's degree is based on the Bachelor's de- 
gree. The minimum requirement for the Master's is 
9 courses. 

A thesis, approved by the thesis committee, is also 
required. If the student wishes, however, he may 
take 2 additional courses in lieu of a thesis. 

In addition, Oglethorpe University offers a Summer 
Quarter divided into two terms of 51/^ weeks each. 
Classes meet six days per week. 2 courses each term 
or 4 courses during the quarter is the regular amount 
of credit earned. A course is one and two-thirds year 

Oglethokpe University 99 

hours or five quarter hours. By these plans teachers 
combining the year's work and summer school attend- 
ance will be able to receive their degree in a reason- 
able 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.

Appreciation of Music 511-2-3. An inquiry into the 
evolution of music from the earliest times to the pres- 
ent. The plan contemplated is a combination of his- 
tory, musical form, and appreciation. While the his- 
torical phase is interesting, and an understanding of 
musical form appeals to the intellectual and scientif- 
ic, the main object is to cultivate increased apprecia- 
tion of its beauty and of its power as an instrument 
of expression. The course will introduce simple and 
primitive forms with explanations and illustrations. 
This will be followed in proper sequence by the folk 
songs, the dance form, the suite, grand opera, ora- 
torio, 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 present it in lieu of a 
three hour requirement in Social Science or in the 
School of Education.

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 posi- 
tions as physical directors and coaches in high 
schools, prep schools and universities, a regular cur- 
riculum has been arranged offering instruction in 
certain subjects, the completion of which will lead to 
a degree of Bachelor of Arts in Physical Education. 

The science courses listed are designed especially 
for students of Physical Education. The courses are 
planned to awaken in the student an interest that 
shall be more compelling than that of a prescribed 
course. To this end instruction is based in so far 
as possible on direct observations made in demon- 
stration. 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 
microscopic slides. Weekly quizzes are supplemented 
by written tests given upon the completion of some 
general division of the subject. 

History and Principles of Physical Education 121-2- 
3. Three lectures weekly throughout the year. This 

Oglethorpe University 115 

course deals with the history of physical education in 
Europe and the Orient. The course also deals with 
the history of physical education in America. Pri- 
marily the aim of this course is to relate the story 
of physical education from the earliest times to the 
modern. The political, social, and religious condi- 
tions which determine the presence or absence, or 
the character of physical education are discussed at 
length. Three hours. 

Varsity Coaching — Football, basketball, and base- 
ball 111-2-3. Three lectures weekly throughout the 
year. Classes conducted by Varsity head coaches in 
respective departments. Fundamentals, strategy, psy- 
chology pertaining to athletics, the art of coaching

Intramural Athletics 

In order to extend the benefits of organized ath> 
letic competition to all students of Oglethorpe Uni- 

Oglethorpe University 117 

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 
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 sports 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- 
pective students concerning "athletic scholarships." 
The only scholarships offered by the University are 
given as rewards for exceptional high school and col- 
lege attainment. The only way in which a football 
or baseball player can receive aid at Oglethorpe is 
in the same way that other students are aided, by 
such self-help jobs as it may be possible for him 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

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-

Beneath the Administration building a Crypt fit- 
ted with a stainless steel door and lined with stain- 
less steel plates has been prepared for the reception 
of a collection of material representing a cross section 
of civilization of today and the sum total of human 
knowledge of our times. This consists of micro book 
records of all of the important books in the world, a 
complete photographic history of the United States 
since 1837, in still pictures, and since 1898, in motion 
pictures ; and working models of all of our important 
inventions. All of this material will be sealed in con- 
tainers of glass from which the air has been evacuat- 
ed and replaced with an inert gas. The glass contain- 
ers are in turn placed inside transite and steel cases. 
When the material has been finally assembled the 
Crypt will be sealed, to remain inviolate for six 
thousand years. All of the material will be copied in 
duplicate on cellulose acetate film and on metal strips. 
Tests indicate that this will survive until the opening 
of the Crypt. (See complete story on last pages of 

Historiographic Museum 

This museum is now being established at Ogle- 
thorpe. It is the first photographic museum in the 
world. It is devoted entirely to the history of the 
United States as illustrated by still, sound, and motion 
pictures. The collection is already started at the 
University, and a building will be built to house it and 
an organization set in motion to carry on its work 
permanently. This will provide the greatest collection 
of contemporary American history available any-

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 instructon, 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 begun and a section is finished providing 
accommodations for five thousand spectators and 

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 
institution to add a crew to its list of athletic sports. 

124 Oglethorpe University 

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 frieiids, 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 
valuable reference works in special departments. The 

Oglethorpe University 125 

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 1939-40 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 in the Oglethorpe Auditorium. 

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 resolu- 
tion unanimously adopted by the Faculty of the uni- 
versity, 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- 


Oglethorpe University 

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."

Roll of Honor 

Students who make 5 Quality Points in any term are placed 
on the Roll of Honor, and their names are read out in the 
Tuesday Public Assembly. 

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 

128 Oglethorpe University 

to our students for swimming, boating and fishing,, 
the physical advantages offered by Oglethorpe Uni- 
versity 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, whicK 
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 activ- 
ities, she draws to herself as to a magnet the great 
minds of the nation and the world. Hither come lec- 
turers, musicians, statesmen, evangelists, editors,. 
teachers and officials of the United States. An intel- 
lectual atmosphere created by such conditions and the- 
frequent opportunity of contact with these leaders in 
all branches of human activity, offered frequently 
to our students, give Oglethorpe University an ad- 
vantage of position and of opportunity which she wiir 
cultivate to the utmost. Facilities for hearing and 
meeting the great musicians and authors and public 
speakers and the leaders in all spheres of intellectuaF 
activity are offered our students. The tremendous^ 

Oglethorpe University 129 

influence of such contact upon the young lives com- 
mitted to us will be felt in their increased ambition 
and redoubled determination 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 defec- 

This is the special work of the silent faculty at 

130 Oglethorpe University 

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 

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- 
tative women of the city of Atlanta at the home of 
President Thornwell Jacobs, Saturday afternoon, No- 

Oglethorpe University 131 

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 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 1939-40 are as follows : 

132 Ogletthorpe University

Mrs. J. D. Cromer; Recording Secretary, Mrs. I. R.

The petition of Oglethorpe University respectfully shows: 

1. That by an order of this honorable court, petitioner w^as 
duly incorporated on the 8th day of May, 1913; to which pro- 
ceedings reference is made. 

2. That Parapraph 4 of said charter granted as aforesaid, 
is sought to be amended by enlarging the scope thereof, by

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 fea- 
ture which they may have given to its character. 

Oglethorpe University 155 

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 Caesar's Commentaries, 
four books; Cicero's Select Orations; Mair's Introduction to 
Latin Syntax; the Gospels in the Greek Testament; Dalphel's 
Grammar, including Latin Prosody; also, on English Gram- 
mar, Arithmetic and Geography, ancient and modern. 

The course of instruction in the several classes, will be as 
follows, to wit: 


Cicero de Amicitia Cicero de Officiis and Horace 
Graeca Majora (Odes) 

Latin and Greek Exercises Graeca Majora 

Algebra (Davis) Latin and Greek Exercises

Quintilian General Review 

156 Ogletthorpe University 

(Provision will also be made for instruction in Modern) 

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 v/ant 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 

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.

Oglethorpe University 157 

Something new in the history of the world is 
taking place at Oglethorpe University. This is the 
conception and inauguration of the most unique arch- 
eological project in the history of mankind. It is also 
the integration and correlation of all known facts re- 
garding our civilization today, and the preservation 
of the result of this research for the people who in- 
habit this world sixty centuries hence. 

Looking back into history, throughout the whole 
Icnown world, at no time in any country or in any 
civilization has there been a conscious attempt to pre- 
serve all the known facts regarding any nation or 
people so that it may be passed on to posterity. Even 
if any person had conceived of a project of this kind 
prior to the last fifty years it would have been im- 
possible to have carried it out. Only modern ad- 
vancement in science has made this possible, and only 
one person in the known history of the world ever vis- 
ioned this stupendous task. 

It was not until in 1935 that Dr. Thornwell Ja- 
cobs, the president of Oglethorpe University, while 
teaching his Cosmic History class suddenly realized 
the above fact. At first he put it aside as imprac- 
ticable of accomplishment owing to the tremendous 
labor involved, but the idea grew upon him, and he 
finally decided to carry it out. In 1936 in consulta- 
tion with Orson Munn, of the Scientific American, a 
beginning was made, and the Scientific American an- 
nounced the project and invited suggestions from sci- 
entists and laymen for carrying out the work. Dr. 
Jacobs decided to place the time for the opening of 
the "Crypt of Civilization", as he named it, as far in 
the future as our written records go into the past, 
namely, six thousand years, which would make the 

158 Oglethorpe University 

time for the unsealing A. D., 8113. 

The Literary Digest, then edited by Mr. Pendray, 
also announced the project and gave considerable 
space to the story, which so impressed Editor Pendray 
that he later "sold" the idea to the Westinghouse Com- 
pany for the "Time Capsule", which was a miniature 
edition of the Oglethorpe Crypt idea and which was 
buried under the Westinghouse Building at the 
World's Fair. 

Active preparation was commenced by Dr. Jacobs 
to begin a collection of material for the Crypt. At 
this time the Neiu York Times published an article on 
the Crypt idea, and this came to the notice of a sci- 
entist living in Salem, Ohio, T. K. Peters, who wrote 
Dr. Jacobs, making some suggestions in regard to 
material that should be included in the Crypt, and in 
regard to the microfilming of books, which was his 
particular hobby. Dr. Jacobs invited him to pay a 
visit to Oglethorpe, which he did, and in conference 
at the University Dr. Jacobs decided he was the man 
to take over the work. 

As a result, Peters brought his microfilm camera 
down to Oglethorpe and, working with Dr. Jacobs, a 
collection of books and other material was begun. 
During the two years which have elapsed since that 
beginning, a complete and scientific plan of procedure 
has been adopted and is being carried out. With the 
assistance of the American Library Association a list 
was prepared of all of the most authoritative books in 
the world, anticipating in a measure WeWs World En- 
cyclopedia, for it is a compendium of everything that 
civilized man knows today. 

The closing of the Crypt will take place in 1940, 
and thirty-three months will have elapsed from the 
inception of the idea to its fruition.
