Entered at Post Office at Oglethorpe University, Georgia, 
Under Act of Congress, June 13, 1898. 


I believe in God: 

Infinite intelligence, eternal love, immeasurable power; 

Father and mother, creator and preserver and destroyer 

Of all that was and is and will be; 

Whether visible or invisible, 

Audible or inaudible, 

Tangible or intangible. 

I love God with all my heart and mind and will. 

I see and hear God at all times, in all places, in all things. 

I study the Law of God in science, in literature, in religion. 

I worship God in gratitude, in truth and in conduct. 

I believe in Man: 

In his glorious struggle upward out of the night of the past, 

In his ability and willingness to accept and develop 

The opportunities and duties of his present dawn, 

And in the certainty of his eventual arrival 

At the sublime noon of his highest ideals. 

I believe in virtue, in justice, and in righteousness among men, 

The faithful guides that illumine his path 

Through the jungles of hates and greeds and fears, 

I love man, as a friend, as a brother, as myself. 

I work for man, for his intellectual enlightenment, for his ma- 
terial betterment, for his moral development. 

I believe in myself. 

In my courage, in my conscience, in my power. 

I believe in strength through joy, joy through faith, and faith 
through prayer. 

I believe that the parenthood of God and the brotherhood of 

Are above and around and within me. 

I believe that the Will of God 

Is revealed in me as in all things else; 

Most clearly in my best thoughts, my noblest feelings, my fin- 
est ambitions. 

I believe in my Messiahship, and in that of all men who follow 

The urge to live and die for the welfare of the world. 

I believe in my future; 

That the kind power which led me through the eternity of the 
past to this present good hour, 

Without my knowledge or consent. 

Will never withdraw his loving kindness from me 

Now that I have learned to know and love and trust Him. 

To this faith I commit my all. 

Lead on, O God! 

The Prayer 
Of Oglethorpe 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 College 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 
the year 1823, and eventuated in the founding of a 
manual training school, and this in turn, became 
Oglethorpe College in 1835 when Midway Hill, in the 
suburbs of Milledgeville, then the capital of the state 
of Georgia, was chosen for the location of the insti- 
tution. Old Oglethorpe College was thus the first de- 
nominational college or university between the Atlan- 
tic and Pacific Oceans south of the Virginia line, and, 
of a right, claimed to be the Alma Mater of all that 
brilliant company of institutions which were born 
after her in this vast empire. 

The facilities of the old Oglethorpe were adequate 
for the time. The main building was probably the 
handsomest college structure in the Southeast when 
it was erected, and "contained the finest college chapel 
in the United States not excepting Yale, Harvard or 

In the faculty of the institution may be found the 
names of men who were world famous. Among these 
were Joseph LeConte, the 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 when with the Oglethorpe cadets he 
marched away to the wars. Shortly before his death, 
Lanier, looking back over his career, remarked to a 
friend that the greatest intellectual impulse of his life 
had come to him during his college days at Oglethorpe 
through the influence of Dr. Woodrow. Her other 
eminent alumni include governors, justices, modera- 
tors of the General Assembly, discoverers, inventors 
and a host of honest, industrious and superb laborers 
for the highest ideals of humanity. 

Oglethorpe "died at Gettysburg," for during the 
war her sons were soldiers, her endowment was in- 
vested in Confederate bonds, and her buildings which 
were used for barracks and hospital, were later 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 were closed for the second time. 

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

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

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 limestone, covered with variegated 
slates and as near fire proof as human skill can make 
it, was ready for occupancy in the fall of 1916, when 
the first class gathered on her beautiful campus on 
Peachtree Road. A faculty equal to that of any cog- 
nate institution in the country was formed. The work 
of raising funds and new construction goes steadily 
on. All of this has been done in the midst of finan- 
cial disaster that has darkened the spirit of the whole 

The Romance of Her Resurrection 

The story of the resurrection of Oglethorpe reads 
like a romance. Beginning only twenty-nine years 
ago with a contribution of $100.00 a year for ten years 
from her present president, it soon gathered with it 
a band of great-hearted Atlanta men who determined 
to see that their city had a university, as well as a 
band of far-seeing educational leaders, who wished 
to erect a certain type of institution in this splendid 
metropolis. The story of how dollar was added to 
dollar during the campaign of four years; of how no 
less than seventy Atlanta men gave each $1,000.00 or 
more to the enterprise; of how the story was told in 
101 cities and towns all over the South from Galves- 
ton, Texas, to Charlottsville, 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 been maintained. There are now something 
like five thousand men. women and children, all of 
whom have contributed or promised from fifty cents 
to $1,000. They are the Founders' Club which is 
carrying the movement forward so splendidly. 

Her Architectural Beauty 

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

It will be seen that the architects and landscape 
artists have spared no pains to make Oglethorpe one 
of the really beautiful universities of America. The 
architecture is Collegiate Gothic; the building mate- 
rial is a beautiful blue granite trimmed with lime- 
stone. All the buildings are covered with heavy vari- 
egated slates. The interior construction is of steel, 
concrete, brick and hollow tile. The building given 
by Dr. and Mrs. Lupton and their son, our beloved 
benefactors, is the one with the tower just opposite 
on the left of the entrance. Lowry Hall, the gift of 
Col. and Mrs. R. J. Lowry, stands completed at the 
end of the main axis directly in front of the entrance. 
The total cost of construction of the buildings men- 
tioned above with the land and the landscape work 
required, will be approximately $4,000,000. The build- 
ing plan will be followed out in its entirety. 

The Oglethorpe Campus 

By the generosity of Mr. William Randolph Hearst, 
Oglethorpe is the possessor of one of the finest college 
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. As 
this property immediately adjoins the two hundred 
acres already possessed by the University, the com- 
pleted campus consists of a body of six hundred acres 
of land in one tract in the immediate vicinity of At- 
lanta, on Peachtree Road and on the main line of the 
Southern Railroad. This gift of Mr. Hearst provides 
for tjie 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 
Hermance Stadium was erected at a cost of something 
over $100,000. Like all the other Oglethorpe build- 
ings it is constructed of granite, trimmed with carved 
limestone. The seats are of reinforced concrete. This 
first section which seats about five thousand, com- 
prises approximately one-ninth of the total seating 
capacity. When completed it will have cost something 
like $750,000 and will have a seating capacity of ap- 
proximately that of the Roman Colosseum, 45,000. It 
is named in honor of Dr. and Mrs. Harry P. Hermance, 
Hal Hermance and Miss Helena Hermance, the don- 

Her Spiritual and Intellectual Ideals 

But it is not so much the magnificent exterior of 
the institution about which the men who are founding 
Oglethorpe 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 Oglethorpe there will be 
a book containing the name of every man, woman and 
child who aided in the founding of the University, 
arranged alphabetically by states. That Book will 
be accessible to every student and visitor who may 
want to know who it was from his or her home that 
took part in the doing of this, the greatest deed that 
has been attempted for our sons and daughters in 
this generation. The Book is not yet complete, be- 
cause the work is not yet finished, and each month is 
adding many to this roll of honor, whose names will 
thus be preserved in the life and archives of Ogle- 
thorpe University forever. 

Clock and Chimes 

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

Immediate Purpose and Scope 

The purpose of Oglethorpe University is to offer 
courses of study leading to the higher academic and 
professional degrees, under a Christian environment, 
and thus to train young men who wish to become spe- 

Oglethorpe University 31 

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

Students who are looking forward to university 
work are invited to correspond with the President in 
order that they may prepare themselves for the ad- 
vanced courses which are to be offered. 

Adequate library and laboratory facilities are pro- 
vided. Free use is made of the city of Atlanta, in 
itself a remarkable laboratory of industrial and scien- 
tific life, whose museums, libraries, and municipal 
plants are at the disposal of our students for obser- 
vation, 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 beween 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- 
dent dramas, and in the basement, basketball court, 
swimming pool, lockers and showers, and quarters 

32 Oglethorpe University 

of 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 It. J. 
Lowry and Emma Markham Lowry. 


In the Schools of Liberal Arts, Literature and 

Journalism, Science, Business Administration, 

Education, Secretarial Preparation, Fine 

Arts, and Physical Education 

The requirement for entrance to the Academic 
Schools of 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 

♦Students coming from outside the State of Georgia may be 
admitted on fifteen units without a high school diploma and 
without examination, but a certificate must be presented. 

Oglethorpe University 33 

units in English and two units in Mathematics. A 
unit represents a year's study in any subject in an ac- 
credited high school. 

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

Standards for Georgia Colleges* 

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

(a) A basis of granting charters to new or pro- 

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

Oglethorpe University 35 

posed higher educational institutions under the pro- 
visions of Section 14 of the Georgia Code.** 

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

It is not proposed that these standards should op- 
erate to make it impossible for a worthy new enter- 
prise to be begun, nor for a worthy institution now 
in operation to be denied a fair opportunity for de- 

It is, therefore, agreed that: 

(a) In the case of proposed new institutions of 
higher learning, if the Board of Education is satisfied 
that such institution has a reasonable possibility of 
meeting these standards within three years a provis- 
ional charter for three years may be granted, such 
charter to be made permanent if and when such in- 
stitution shall have met the conditions of these stand- 

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

Standards for Colleges 

1. Definition: 

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

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

** Section 14. No charter giving the right to confer degrees 
or issue diplomas shall he 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 

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

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

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

2. Entrance or Admission: 

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

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

3. Graduation: 

A college shall require for graduation the comple- 
tion of a minimum quantitative requirement of 120 
semester hours of credit (or the equivalent in term 

Oglethorpe University 37 

hours, quarter hours, points, majors, or courses) with 
further qualitative requirements adapted by each in- 
stitution to its conditions. 

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

4. Degrees: 

Small institutions should confine themselves to one 
or two baccalaureate degrees. When more than one 
baccalaureate degree is offered, all shall be equal in 
requirements for admission and graduation. Insti- 
tutions of limited resources and inadequate facilities 
for graduate work should confine themselves to strict- 
ly undergraduate courses. 

5. Permanent Records: 

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

6. Size of Faculty and Number of Departments: 

A college of arts and sciences of approximately 100 
students should maintain at least eight separate de- 
partments with at least one professor in each devot- 
ing his whole time to that department. The size of 
the faculty should bear a definite relation to the type 
of the institution, the number of students, and the 
number of courses offered. With the growth of the 

38 Oglethorpe University 

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 one full year of graduate work, major- 
ing in the subject taught, in addition to a bachelor's 
degree from a fully accredited college, and should 
have two years of training in an approved graduate 

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

8. Faculty Load: 

The number of hours of class room work given by 
each teacher will vary in different departments. To 
determine this, the amount of preparation required 
for the class and the amount of time needed for study 
to keep abreast of the subject, together with the 
number of students, must be taken into account. 
Teaching schedules, including classes for part-time 
students, exceeding 18 recitation hours or their equiv- 
alent per week per instructor, will be interpreted as 
endangering educational efficiency. Sixteen hours is 
the recommended maximum load. 

9. Size of Classes: 

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

10. Financial Support: 

The minimum annual operating income for an ac- 
credited college, exclusive of payment of interest, an- 

Oglethorpe University 39 

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

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

11. Library: 

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

12. Laboratories: 

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

13. General Equipment and Buildings: 

The location and construction of the buildings, the 
lighting, heating and ventilation of the rooms, the 

40 Oglethorpe University 

nature of the laboratories, corridors, closets, water 
supply, school furniture, apparatus, and methods of 
cleaning shall be such as to insure hygienic conditions 
for both students and teachers. 

14. Proportion of Students Candidates for Degrees: 

No institution shall be admitted to the accredited 
list, or continued more than one year on such list, un- 
less it has a college registration of at least 100 reg- 
ular students. A 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 degrees, provision in the curriculum for breadth 
of study and for concentration, soundness of scholar- 
ship, the practice of scientific spirit including freedom 
of investigation and teaching, loyalty to facts, and 
encouragement of efficiency, initiative and originality 
in investigation and teaching, the tone of the -institu- 
tion, including the existence and culture of good mor- 
als and ideals, and satisfaction and enthusiasm among 
students and staff shall be factors in determining its 

16. Extra-Curricular Activities: 

The proper administration of athletics, student 

Oglethorpe University 41 

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

18. Inspection and Reports: 

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

Inspection — No college will be placed on the ap- 
proved list until it has been inspected and reported 
upon by the agent or agents regularly appointed by 
the State Department of Education. All colleges ac- 
credited by the Department shall be open to inspec- 
tion at any time. 

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

General Information 


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

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

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

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

Oglethorpe University 43 

least two-thirds of the term's classes if credit is de- 

8. Each student is required to register in person. 

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

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


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. 

44 Oglethorpe University 


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


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

Freshmen, Sophomores, and Juniors may not take 
more than 18 hours a week unless they have made 
an average of B with no grade below C in the pre- 
vious term. If a student wishes to make more than 20 
hours, the written consent of the Dean must be se- 
cured, regardless of the average made. Seniors are 

Oglethorpe University 45 

not limited, but the written consent of the Dean must 
be secured. 

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, 
Players' Club and work on the Petrel, 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 below 50, 
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 unexcusted 
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- 

4G Oglethorpe University 

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. 

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 the 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 au- 
tomatically cause the student to be dropped, provid- 
ed however that if such student has registered for 
the ensuing term he may continue until the comple- 
tion thereof, and if he shall have exhibited a marked 
improvement in his studies, the Dean of his depart- 
ment may recommend to the faculty the continuance 
of such student. 


No withdrawals from the University can be consid- 
ered as duly authorized unless a student officially no- 
tifies the Dean of the University at the time of with- 
drawal. Mere absence from school or non-attendance 
upon any classes cannot be construed as definite with- 

Oglethorpe University 47 

drawal. If the reasons for withdrawal are acceptable 
to the Dean, the student's withdrawal is approved, re- 
corded, and dated ; and the student is entitled to "hon- 
orable dismissal." 

Courses of Instruction and 
Requirements for Degrees 

In the session of 1940-41 Oglethorpe University will 
offer courses in the undergraduate classes of eight 
schools leading to the customary academic degrees. 
The degree of Bachelor of Arts (A.B.) in Liberal 
Arts will be conferred upon those students satisfac- 
torily completing a four years' course as outlined be- 
low, based largely on the study of the languages. The 
degree of Bachelor of Arts in Science will be confer- 
red upon those students who satisfactorily complete 
a four years' course largely in scientific studies. The 
degree of Bachelor of Arts in Literature and Journal- 
ism will be given to those students who complete a 
course including work in languages, literature and 
journalism. The degree of Bachelor of Arts in Com- 
merce will be conferred upon those students who sat- 
isfactorily complete a full four years' course in the 
studies relating particularly to business administra- 
tion. 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 Secretarial Preparation will be 
conferred upon those students who complete the 
studies in that School. 

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

48 Oglethorpe University 

The degree of Bachelor of Arts in Physical Educa- 
tion will be given to those students specializing in that 

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

In general, it may be suggested that students pre- 
paring to enter such professions as the ministry or 
law, will choose the A.B. course in Liberal Arts ; those 
looking forward to medicine, dentistry, 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 lives 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 shaped as to in- 
fluence the student towards a certain end, colored 
largely by the type of studies, yet each course will 
be found to include such subjects of general culture 
as are necessary to the making of a life as distin- 
guished from a living. 

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

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. 

Oglethorpe University 49 

Condition E (50-59) — re-examination allowed. 
Failure F (below 50) — no re-examination. 
Inc. — Incomplete. 

In the junior division of the college 30 quality points 
must have been achieved before 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. 

No fractional credits made either in Oglethorpe 
University or by transcript 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 the 
State of Georgia. 

Definite official transcripts are required for admis- 
sion both to the graduate and under-graduate divis- 

A student who has had two years of a modern lan- 
guage in high school cannot receive credit for Fresh- 
man work in that language. 

50 Oglethorpe University 

All diplomas and degrees of Oglethorpe University- 
are granted upon the basis of credits for regular class 
room attendance and the successful passing of exam- 
inations. No credits are given for any form of pri- 
vate instruction nor for any course in which the stu- 
dent was not formally registered. All courses for 
which credits are given must be advertised in the cat- 
alogue or filed in advance in writing with the Reg- 
istrar by the Dean of the Department in which they 
are offered and approved by the President of the Uni- 
versity, and must be announced by bulletin as avail- 
able to any and all students qualified to take them 
under catalogue regulations. All classes must be met 
in regular class rooms provided therefor by the Uni- 
versity. No credit for any form of work done, other 
than as described above, will be granted. 


Candidates for graduation must file with the Regis- 
trar, at least a month before the time of graduation, 
a written application, by filling out a blank form pre- 
pared for the purpose. The student is held respon- 
sible for filing this application. 

University Expenses 


No charges are made for the usual College fees 
such as matriculation, laboratories, infirmary, con- 
tingent, and use of library. 

The charge for tuition is $80.00 per term, $240.00 
per academic year of approximately nine months. For 
this sum a student is entitled to take from 12 to 17 
credit hours of work per week. No student is per- 
mitted to take less than 12 hours per week and those 
students who take more than 17 credit hours per week 

Oglethorpe University 51 

are required to pay for the extra hours at the rate of 
$15.00 per hour. These sums are payable in cash in 
advance, at the beginning of each term, but the Cash- 
ier is given the authority, when a student has proven 
that his credit is good, to allow that student to pay 
one half of the charges at the beginning of the term 
and the other half on or before a date which the 
Cashier will set and which will not be later than the 
middle of the term. This means of paying tuition 
fees is applicable also to charges for board and room 

In the Adult Education Department, charges are 
$13.50 for 1/2 course, subject to discount of one-third 
to teachers, $9.00 per half course, net. The summer 
school charges for 1940 are the same as charges in 
Adult Education Department. No charge will be made 
for room rent during the summer term to any student 
taking 4 courses for the entire summer term or 2 
courses 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 allowed 
any additional discount on bills or permitted to hold 
any other self help job or scholarships. This does not 
include N.Y.A. Scholarships. 

Board and Room Rent 

The dormitory facilities of Oglethorpe University 
are among the safest and most comfortable of those 
of cognate institutions in America. All permanent 
buildings of the University will be like those now 

52 Oglethorpe University 

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 comprises the entire third 
floor of the Administration Building, the third floor 
of Lupton Hall, and the second and third floors of 
Lowry Hall, divided into individual rooms, with gen- 
eral toilet and bath on the same floor. Each room 
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 
the dormitory contains ample closet and |or wardrobe 
space. The rooms are large, airy, safe and comfort- 

The furniture is of substantial quality and is ap- 
proximately the same for all rooms, including chiffon- 
ier, study-table, chairs, single beds, springs and mat- 
tresses. Room linen, pillows and bed clothing are 
furnished by the student. Application for rooms 
should be made as early as possible. For reservation 
of room inclose $5.00 reservation fee (non-returnable) 
to be credited on first payment for room rent. 

All students rooming in the dormitories are required 
also to board at the college cafeteria and any student 
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. 

Oglethorpe University 53 

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

Room rent: Administration Building, third floor, 
Lupton Hail, 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 rebate 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 meal 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- 
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. 

Charges: 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, 

54 Oglethorpe University 

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 
are set at figures which years of experience have in- 
dicated to be suitable to the average student. This 
is especially true of board which is set low to suit 
many students who 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 furnishes a liberal assort- 
ment of food at moderate prices, varying with the 
Atlanta market. 


Upon petition of the Student Body, a special stu- 
dent activities fee of $10.00 per term will be charged 

Oglethorpe University 55 

for the session beginning September 1940. The con- 
tingent fee of $3.00 per term at present charged, will 
be cancelled. The $30.00 fee will entitle the student 
to a subscription of the weekly student paper, THE 
STORMY PETREL ($1.50 per year), to the student 
annual, THE YAMACRAW, ($7.50 per year) and to 
ten tickets at $1.00 each to each of the three foot- 
ball games played at Hermance Stadium during the 
autumn of 1940. These tickets, the students are at 
liberty to sell or use for their friends and guests. 

In addition to the above, a season's pass will be 
given to each, student, admitting him or her, without 
further charge, to all baseball, basketball and other 
athletic contests played on the campus of the Univer- 
sity during the above mentioned session. 


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 advance payment of charges. 


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 

5*3 Oglethorpe University 

as may occur. By this means prolonged and serious 
illness can often be prevented. There is a University 
physician who can be secured on short notice when his 
services are needed. Students whose medical needs 
exceed the facilities of the infirmary find every le- 
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 oi special illness requiring operations or the ser- 
vices of specialists while the University frequently 
is able to secure reduced rates for students, yet we 
assume no responsibility beyond such services as our 
college physician and college infirmary are able to 
render. This includes such accidents and injuries 
arising from participation in inter-coliegiate sports, 
as they may feel competent to treat, in which case a 
special consideration is offered as specified elsewhere. 

Directions to New Students 

Students coming to Oglethorpe University from a 
distance should remember that Oglethorpe University 
has its own station on the main line of the Southern 
Railway between Atlanta and Washington. Tickets 
may be purchased and baggage checked to Oglethorpe 
University, Georgia, the station being immediately in 
front of the campus. Students coming to Atlanta 
over other lines may either re-check their baggage to 
the University station, or may have it delivered at a 
special rate by the Atlanta Baggage and Cab Co. In 
using the latter method mention should always be 
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 

Oglethorpe University 57 

cars at the points listed below. This method of trans- 
portation is much more economical than by taxicab. 

Students arriving at the Terminal Station in At- 
lanta may walk a distance of four blocks (down Mit- 
chell Street to Broad Street, up Broad Street to the 
northeast 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. 

All summer courses are credited toward the attain- 
ment of a degree, and afford a convenient way to 
speed up the date of graduation. The work is given 
in courses and half courses. One course is equivalent 
to one and two-third year hours or three and one-third 
semester hours. Write for bulletin of Summer Ses- 

Graduate School 

It is the purpose of Oglethorpe University to de- 
velop a thoroughly excellent Graduate School, offer- 

58 Oglethorpe University 

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 grades of work and facilities. 

Courses leading to the Master's degree in certain 
departments will be found outlined elsewhere in this 
catalogue, under the appropriate department heading. 
This degree is based upon that of Bachelor of Arts 
of Oglethorpe University or of some other approved 
institution. The candidate must carry an aggregate 
of fifteen hours or nine courses of graduate work, 
with at least two professors. A course is equivalent 
to one and two-thirds year hours. One-half course 
equals five-sixths year hour. Transfer credits (max- 
imum three and one-third year hours) will be allowed. 
The work must be of graduate grade, and must be ap- 
proved by the Dean of the Graduate School and the 
Registrar. In addition a thesis is required. But the 
degree is not guaranteed at the end of a fixed period 
of time. A certain amount of work must be accom- 
plished, and the quality of it must be such as to satisfy 
the professors concerned and the whole faculty. 

Students entering the graduate school in selecting 
their major courses must present not less than two 
years (six year hours or 4 courses) of under-graduate 
work in the same or closely related subjects evidenced 
by official transcripts from standard institutions, rec- 
ognized 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 or 2 courses) of 
work in any subject selected as a minor. 

A minimum of fifteen college hours or 9 courses 
and a minimum of one year (nine months) of resi- 
dence is required for the Master's degree. A mini- 

Oglethorpe University 59 

mum of one year or approximately nine months' resi- 
dence is required for the Bachelor's degree. Of the 
fifteen hours or nine courses required for the Mas- 
ter's degree, not less than nine year hours or five and 
one-half courses shall be devoted to the major subject 
and the balance 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- 


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-

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

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

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 69, 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 arfc expected to have had at least three years of

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- 

numbers denote senior subjects. All courses above five hun- 
dred are graduate courses. 

The second figure in a course number denotes the sequence, 
there being nine possible courses in each subject in the fresh- 
man, sophomore, junior, and senior divisions. For instance, 
English 121 is a freshman subject offered in the first term, 
and is the second English course listed in the catalogue. 
The last figure in the course number denotes the term, one 
signifying the first or autumn term; two signifying the second 
or winter term, and three the spring or third term. For in- 
stance, English 111 is a freshman course in English given in 
the first term.

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

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

Graduate Courses in Latin and Greek 

511-2-3. Those who are thinking of taking gradu- 
ate courses are advised to write to the President or 
to the Professor, that their preliminary studies may 
be so guided as to fit them for the work. The 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 

Leonard DeLong Wallace, Dean 

The work in the School of Literature and Journal- 
ism is based upon two groups of courses, either one 
of which leads to the degree of Bachelor of Arts. Al- 
though Latin is not required for entrance, two or 
three years of Latin are desirable. 

A small number of electives are permitted students 
in the junior or senior year. However, these electives 
must have a definite relation to the complete course 
which the student is pursuing toward a degree and 
must receive the sanction of the dean. 

The group of courses which centers in the study of 
English 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 
those aspects of English literature which are usually 
treated in undergraduate courses. These courses also 
constitute an excellent basis for the one-year speciali- 
zation in English language and literature which leads 
to the degree of Master of Arts. 

The second group of courses features training in 
journalism. Students who elect this group are expect- 
ed to pursue the basic courses in literature, history, 
economics, political science, and sociology. 


English 111-2-3. Composition. This required fresh- 
man course combines extended practice in writing 
with the reading of modern prose and poetry. The 
chief object of this course is to teach the student to 
arrange his thoughts clearly and present them with 
force. Continual emphasis is laid on increasing the 

72 Oglethorpe University 

store of words. A vocabulary test is given near the 
beginning of the fall term, and a second one at the end 
of the spring term, to determine what progress each 
student has made. All freshmen will be placed in sec- 
tions in which the work corresponds to their degree 
of development. To this end all freshmen will be given 
a test on the day preceding the date of matriculation 
for the first quarter. This test is a prerequisite to 
entrance to any section of Freshman English. No stu- 
dent will be permitted to take advanced work in Eng- 
lish until he has made a satisfactory record in this 
basic course. Three hours. 

English 211-2-3. A Survey of English Literature. 

This course comprises : an examination of the history 
of this literature; the study in class and the reading 
in parallel of representative literary specimens of its 
entire development ; consideration of the various types 
of literature; analysis of the various forms; study of 
the elements of versification. This course is designed 
to complete the student's general study of literature 
and to introduce him to specialized literary subjects. 
Consequently, satisfactory completion of this course is 
prerequisite to courses offered for juniors and seniors. 
Three hours. 

English 311-2-3. The Modern Essay and Advanced 
Composition. This course is designed for those juniors 
and seniors who have ideas which they wish to express 
and who contemplate doing professional writing. The 
content of this course is three fold. 1. A brief survey 
of the development of the essay as a literary type ; ex- 
tensive reading in recent, provocative essays. 2. An- 
alysis and discussion of current magazine articles of 
importance, especially articles which express ideas 
that are revolutionizing the world today. 3. Frequent 

Oglethorpe University 73 

opportunities for the student to develop control over 
the effective skills of writing. Three hours. 

English 321-2-3. The English Drama. A survey of 
the development of the drama in English from the be- 
ginnings to the close of the nineteenth century; a 
study of the most interesting plays representative of 
this development. Both aspects of this course will be 
treated from the point of view of their human inter- 
est and general cultural significance. Prerequisites, 
English 111-2-3 and 211-2-3. Three hours. 

English 331-2-3. English and American Poetry 
since 1890. A survey course which stresses esthetic 
and social movements in the poetry of this period. The 
principal personalities in contemporary verse are con- 
sidered. Prerequisites, English 211-2-3 and 381-2-3. 
Two hours. 

English 341-2-3. Prose Fiction. This course will com- 
prise consideration of the antecedents of the English 
novel, the reading of representative novels of the 
eighteenth century, the study of novels that represent 
the tendencies in nineteenth- and twentieth-century 
fiction, and an examination of masterpieces that are 
important independently. The purpose of this course 
is to orient the student in his voluntary reading of 
fiction, as well as to acquaint him with the historical 
and critical aspects of this type of literature. The 
novel will therefore be treated as an art form, as a 
social document, and as a revelation of personality. 
Prerequisite, English 111-2-3 and 211-2-3. Three 

English 361-2-3. Shakespeare. A brief consideration 
of the development of the English drama before 
Shakespeare ; an intensive study of at least five plays 
by Shakespeare. Prerequisites, English 111-2-3 and 
211-2-3. Three hours. 

74 Oglethorpe University 

English 371-2-3. The Short Story. Prerequisites, 
English 111-2-3 and 211-2-3. Three hours. 

English 381-2-3. American Literature. Those as- 
pects of our literature and its history which are cover- 
ed in this course are : the colonial writers and the de- 
velopment of early American literature; the litera- 
ture of the Revolution and of our national develop- 
ment; the most prominent writers and movements in 
American literature of the last two generations. Pre- 
requisites, English 111-2-3 and 211-2-3. Three hours. 

English 421-2-3. Methods in English Grammar. 
All qualified students who propose to teach in the 
graded schools or the high schools should elect this 
course. Prerequisites, English 111-2-3 and 211-2-3 or 
the consent of the dean. Three hours. 

English 461-2-3. English Poetry of the Nineteenth 
Century. After a brief survey of the pre-romantic 
writers and some consideration of the individual con- 
tributions to poetry by Blake and Burns, the chief at- 
tention of this course will be directed to those poets 
who have made the nineteenth century notable in Eng- 
lish poetry. This course is required of all seniors who 
take the: English major. It should be elected by ad- 
vanced, qualified students who desire a distinctly cul- 
tural course or who expect to teach. Prerequisites, 
English 111-2-3, 211-2-3, and three additional hours 
of English. Three hours. 

English 471-2-3. Methods in Research. For majors 
in English and Library Science. 

English 521-2-3. Modern Drama. This course offers 
a comparative study of European and American drama 
which has been written in recent years. It includes 
Ibsen and proceeds from him as the originator of in- 
fluences that have largely affected the drama of his 
successors. Plays will be studied in class, or read col- 

Oglethorpe University 75 

laterally, which are representative of the recent de- 
velopments in the theatres of Norway, Germany, 
France, England, Ireland, and the United States. 
Three hours. 

The Course in Journalism 

English 221-2-3. Technique of Journalism. A pro- 
fessional course designed for students of journalism. 
It is elective for juniors and seniors in other schools 
who satisfy the dean of this school, in advance, con- 
cerning their qualifications. In addition to editing, 
this course will cover writing of the news story, the 
magazine article, and the special feature story. Five 

Attached Courses 

The courses listed below have been placed for the 
present in the School of Literature and Journalism. 
Some of these are required subjects in the curricula 
of various schools; others are elective. Particular at- 
tention is drawn to the fact that no one of these 
courses may be substituted for any course listed under 
"English" above. 

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

English 231-2-3. Theory and Practice of Public 
Speaking. This course is designed primarily as a prep- 
aration for and an aid to practical speaking on all 
kinds of formal and informal occasions. This course 
is required of juniors in the School of Literature and 
Journalism. It may be elected by juniors and seniors 
in other schools who receive, in advance, the permis- 
sion of the dean. One hour. 

76 Oglethorpe University 

English 251-2-3. English Bible. The New Testament. 
The study will include the mastery of the history con- 
tained in the Bible, an analysis of each book, and such 
other matters as are required for the proper under- 
standing of the work. It will not be treated from a 
sectarian point of view, or as mere history or litera- 
ture. The aim will be to impart such a knowledge of 
the subject as every intelligent man should possess, 
enabling him to read his Bible with pleasure and profit. 
An effort will be made to give students the proper 
defense of seeming difficulties in the Bible, both for 
their own benefit and in behalf of their ability to meet 
objections of unbelievers. Two hours. 

English 351-2-3. Mythology and Etymology. The 

first two terms will be devoted to the study of Myth- 
ology, so that readers of English literature may be 
able to understand allusions to classical stories. 

The third term of this course is designed to show 
the origin of English words derived from Greek and 
Latin, especially scientific terms. Students looking 
forward to medicine will find this course particularly 
helpful. No knowledge of either Latin or Greek is 
required for entrance. This course is required for 
sophomore students in the School of Literature and 
Journalism. Two hours. 

Play Production 111-2-3. Three hours.

The School of Science 

Leading to the Degree of Bachelor of Arts in Science 

J. A. Aldrich, Dean 

The School of Science is organized to help all stu- 
dents who expect to make their living by exploiting 
nature. It "endeavors to build a solid foundation for 
future work in such professions as Agriculture, En- 
gineering, Medicine and Dentistry, and to prepare for 
industrial occupations not yet organized into profes- 
sional groups. 

It hopes, through the medium of its courses, to build 
a true perspective and its corollary, a sane judgment 
of relative values — attainments which are basic in any 
liberal culture.

Mark Burrows, Dean 

The aim of all instruction in the Lowry School of 
Banking and Commerce is to furnish the general basis 
of business facts, standards and theory which the be- 
ginner finds it difficult or impossible to acquire in 
his early business experience. It avoids any pretense 
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 
electives in the field of Education to qualify them leg- 
ally for the Professional Teacher's Certificate. They 
are also urged to take shorthand and typewriting.

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 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 humanistic, 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 hu- 
man contact sides of life work. We especially rec- 
ommend 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. 


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

ern in treatment, but we adhere to the "Middle of the 
Road" point of view. Three hours.

Education 341-2-3. Secondary Education. A study 
of the historical development of the secondary school 
with reference to purposes and curriculum ; objectives 
of secondary education; relation of the high school to 
the community; adaptation of curricula and subject 
matter to individual differences ; oganization and sup- 
ervision; school management; school law; education 
and vocational guidance; extra-curricular activities. 
Elective in third and fourth year. Three times a week. 
Three hours. 

Education 441-2. Educational Tests and Measure- 
ments. In this course the entire new method of mem- 
tal surveying and testing, both intelligence tests and 
educational tests, will be studied. The student will 
be required to carry on some practical exercises in 
testing classes in near-by schools. The modern meth- 
ods of tabulating results and interpreting statistical 
procedure will also receive attention. Two hours.

Oglethorpe University 103 

Adult Education Division 

The School of Adult Education has been and is giv- 
ing a variety of courses to meet the needs of teachers. 
These will vary with the needs and wishes of the 
student. In each case, the student's course will be 
planned by the Dean of the School and the Registrar. 

In order to conform to the measurement of most 
schools of this type, Oglethorpe University in Septem- 
ber, 1939 adopted the "course system". A course is 
equivalent to 1 2-3 year hours, 3 1-3 semester hours, 
or 5 quarter hours. 

Most of the subjects are given in half courses, for 
the convenience of the students. The time consumed 
by each half course is two clock hours per week. By 
taking two half courses each term a teacher will earn 
the three courses or five year hours allowed by the 
State Department of Education to teachers in serv- 
ice. To earn this amount of credit (3 courses) she 
will spend four clock hours per week in the classroom 
for three terms. 

For the A.B. in Education degree, the student must 
fulfill the following requirements: 

Education 6 courses (10 year hours) 

English 3 courses ( 5 year hours) 

Foreign Language 3 courses ( 5 year hours) 

Science 3 courses ( 5 year hours) 

Social Science 3 courses ( 5 year hours) 
(History, Sociology Eco- 
nomics, Geography, and 
Political Science) 

Electives 18 courses (30 year hours) 

Total 36 courses or 60 year hours 

To meet our residence requirement, a minimum of 
nine courses or fifteen year hours must be taken with 
Oglethorpe University. No exception is ever made to 
this requirement. 

There are two very important rules to which all 

104 Oglethorpe University 

Adult Education students must conform. They are 
as follows: 

1. Not more than one-fourth of the credit required 
for a degree may be secured by extension or corre- 
spondence work. The total amount of credit allowed 
on an A.B. degree by extension and correspondence 
work combined, is nine courses or fifteen (15) year 

2. Teachers in service are allowed only three courses 
(5 year hours) per year during the time they are 
actually engaged in teaching. Therefore, no student 
in the Adult Education Division of the University will 
be given credit for more than three (3) courses or 
five year hours for the scholastic year unless he or 
she has filed with the Registrar a written statement 
that exempts the student from the enforcement of 
this rule. Unless written proof that they are entitled 
to additional work has been filed in the Registrar's 
office, Adult Education students will automatically re- 
ceive credit for only three courses during the scholas- 
tic year, and only the three courses will be transferred 
to the Certification Department. This, of course, does 
not apply to summer school work. 

Requirements for Master of Arts Degree 

The Master's degree is based on the Bachelor's de- 
gree. To enter our graduate school, a student must 
have received a Bachelor's degree from a standard in- 
stitution. A formal application for entrance to the 
graduate school must be filled out and filed in the 
Registrar's office before any graduate courses can be 

The minimum requirement for the Master's degree 
is nine courses or fifteen year hours, together with 
an approved thesis. If the student prefers, however, 

Oglethorpe University 105 

he may take two full courses in lieu of a thesis. In 
that case, he must complete eleven (11) full courses 
for the M.A. degree. 

Of the nine courses required for the M.A. degree, 
five and one-half courses must be in the major su 
ject, and three and one-half may be elective. If "tne" - 
student chooses two additional courses in place of a 
thesis, these courses may be elective. 

All work for the Master's degree must be of senior 
college or graduate level; that is, courses numbered 
three hundred or above. Students taking senior col- 
lege courses along with undergraduate students will 
be required to do additional work for graduate credit. 

Two courses (3 1-3 year hours) of graduate level 
may be transferred from other standard institutions. 


Charges for tuition will be at the rate of $9.00 per 
half course, or $18.00 for a full course. All charges 
are payable in advance. However, arrangements can 
be made to divide this into two payments per term. 

Summer School 

Oglethorpe University offers a summer quarter di- 
vided into two terms of five and one-half weeks each. 
Classes meet six days per week. 

Two courses each term or four courses during the 
quarter of eleven weeks is the regular amount of cred- 
it earned. A course is equivalent to 1 2-3 year hours 
or 3 1-3 semester 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 length of time.

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 as an elective 
for any degree, if approved by the dean of the school.

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 

122 Oglethorpe University 

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 
and the uplifting of character are stressed. Three

Intramural Athletics 

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

124 Oglethorpe University 

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 
to hold. 

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

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

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

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

3. All students engaging in varsity inter-collegiate 
sports must have passed not less than twelve hours 
of work during the preceding year. 

Oglethorpe University 127 

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

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

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

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. 

130 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 friends, so great as to 
be almost unparalleled, and by purchase from special 
funds provided, the university received during the 
first year of its life approximately fifty thousand vol- 
umes for the library. These consist of standard 
works in Literature, History and Science, with many 
valuable reference works in special departments. The 

Oglethorpe University 131 

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 Coat-of-Arms 

Among the unique honors offered at the university 
is the presentation of a sweater with the Coat-of- 
Arms blazoned thereon, which will be awarded in 
the future under the terms of the following 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."

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 

134 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, which 
are believed to be the safest, most beautiful and most 
efficient college or university buildings in the South- 

The Oglethorpe Site— Atlanta 

The attractions of the city of Atlanta as an educa- 
tional center are fast making it one of the great in- 
tellectual dynamos of the nation. Gifted with a soft 
Southern mountain climate, convenient of access to 
the entire nation over its many lines of railway, 
known everywhere as the center of Southern 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 will 
cultivate to the utmost. Facilities for hearing and 
meeting the great musicians and authors and public 
speakers and the leaders in all spheres of intellectual 
activity are offered our students. The tremendous 

Oglethorpe University 135 

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 

136 Oglethorpe University 


Something new in the history of the world has 
taken 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. 

As we look back into history, throughout the whole 
known 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. 

The Bureau of Standards at Washington was 
consulted immediately for details of procedure. Dr. 
Jacobs decided to place the time for the opening of 
the "Crypt of Civilization", as he named it, as far in 

Oglethorpe University 137 

the future as our written records go into the past, 
namely, six thousand years, which would make the 
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 New 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, he 
began a collection of books and other material. Dur- 
ing the two years which have elapsed since that be- 
ginning, 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 Well's World En- 
cyclopedia, for it is a compendium of everything that 
civilized man knows today. 

These microfilmed books, records, pictures, etc., 

138 Oglethorpe University 

are preserved in glass containers in which inert gases 
have been substituted for the air. These glass con- 
tamers are, inturn, placed inside transite (asbestos) 
and stainless steel cases. The Crypt was sealed on 
Saturday, May 25th, 1940 to remain inviolate for 
6,166 years. 

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 

Oglethorpe University 139 

this city of remarkable gatherings, was the assemb- 
ling of approximately two hundred of the represen- 
tative women of the city of Atlanta at the home of 
President Thornwell Jacobs, Saturday afternoon, No- 
vember 25, 1916, to organize a Woman's Board for 
Oglethorpe University. 

The purpose of the Board is to aid the University 
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.

for the year 1939-40 are as follows :

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

Charter of Oglethorpe University 

Oglethorpe University was chartered May 8, 1913. This 
charter was amended February 23, 1925, August 1, 1932 and 
October 20, 1939. 

The following charter takes from all prior charters the 
powers now existing: 


To the Superior Court of said County: 

The petition of Jas. W. English, Sr.; Frank M. Inman, 
John K. Ottley, Thornwell Jacobs, Edgar Watkins, Hoke Smith, 
W. L. Moore, Hugh K. Walker, E. G. Jones, James R. Gray 
and Hugh Richardson, all of Fulton County in the State of 
Georgia, and George W. Watts of Durham, North Carolina; 
J. T. Anderson, Cobb County, and J. W. Hammond of Spald- 
ing County, Georgia, respectfully shows: 

That they desire for themselves and their associates and 
successors to be incorporated and made a body politic under 

Oglethorpe University 159 

the name and style of —OGLETHORPE UNIVERSITY— for 
a period of Fifty Years, from and after October 20, 1939, 
with the right within or at the end of said time to obtain 
further extensions as now or may be authorized by the laws 
of the State of Georgia. 


(A) The purpose of this corporation is educational and 
its principal place of business and corporate home shall be in 
the County of Fulton and the State of Georgia, but it prays 
the right and power to extend its operations and hold prop- 
erty in different Counties of this State. 

(B) No Board, Committee, or other authority of Ogle- 
thorpe University shall ever have the power by any form of 
contract to create a lien on the real properties of the Univer- 
sity now or hereafter owned. Provided, however, the Board 
of Trustees may extend, renew or otherwise secure by appro- 
priate lien any indebtedness now constituting a lien on any 
of the properties of the University and on any property here- 
after acquired on which there is a lien at the time of acquisi- 

That said corporation shall be granted the power to re- 
ceive by gift, donation, purchase or bequest property of what- 
soever kind or character and wheresoever situated; to receive 
and hold funds as trustee, such funds to be used in such man- 
ner as may be provided in the trust granting same; to estab- 
lish and conduct a University for the purpose of promoting 
education of such kind and character as may be desirable 
and desired and as may be determined by the appropriate 
Governing Board as provided in paragraph 4 hereof; to en- 
force good order, receive donations, make purchases, and ef- 
fect all alienations of realty and personalty, not for the pur- 
pose of trade and profit, but for promoting the general de- 
sign of such institution, and to look after the general interest 
of such establishment; to grant diplomas and confer degrees, 
literary, scientific, professional and clerical, and such other 
degrees and honors as are usually conferred by universities, 
in such manner and at such times and under such circum- 
stances as the Governing Board may determine; to hold, use 
and invest such funds as may belong to it or be purchased 
by or granted, given or bequeathed to it, and to hold as trust 
funds any property that may be placed in trust for scholar- 
ships or other purposes connected with education, and gen- 
erally to have corporate powers as may be suitable and not 
inconsistent with the laws of this state, nor violate of private 


The governing authorities of the Corporation shall be 
(1) a Board of Founders; (2) a Board of Directors, and (3) 
a Board of Trustees. 

(A) The Board of Founders shall consist of all who are 

160 Oglethorpe University 

now members of the Board of Directors, for which provision 
is hereafter made, may from time to time elect. 

The President of the University shall be ex officio a 
member of this Board. The officers of this Board shall be 
a President, three Vice-Presidents, a Secretary, and a Treas- 
urer, and the present officers shall continue in office until 
their successors are elected by the Board. To be eligible for 
election to this Board, one must have given or had given in 
his behalf to said University not less than the sum or value 
of One Thousand ($1,000.00)) Dollars. 

Said Board shall meet regularly at least once each year 
at such time as may be determined by its President, or fail- 
ing such determination, by the President of the University; 
and it may meet oftener on the call of either of such Presi- 
dents. Notice of all meetings must be given in writing, mail- 
ed or delivered to the member's last known address, at least 
ten (10) days theretofore. 

(B) The Board of Directors shall have general authority 
over all the affairs of the University, except as authority is 
specifically herein given another Board. 

Such Board of Directors shall consist of not more than 
twenty-one (21) members, seventeen (17) of whom shall be 
elected by the Board of Directors from the members of the 
Board of Founders. The Presidents of the Founders and of 
the University, and the Secretary and Treasurer of the Foun- 
ders shall be ex officio members. The Board of Directors 
shall have as its officers a President, a Vice-President, a Sec- 
retary and a Treasurer. Vacancies on the Board of Directors 
shall be elected by such Board and hold office at the will of 
the Board. The elective members of the Board shall be elected 
approximately one-third (1-3) each from Fulton County, the 
Southern States and from outside the Southern States. The 
Secretary and Treasurer shall be those who respectively hold 
such offices on the Board of Founders. The members of the 
present Executive Committee shall constitute the Board of 
Directors until by by-law or resolution the Board of Direc- 
tors otherwise provide. The Board of Directors shall, through 
its President, report annually, or at its option oftener, its ac- 
tions to the Board of Founders. 

The Board of Directors shall meet regularly once each 
quarter, at dates to be fixed by by-law. Special meetings may 
be called by its President, or by five (5) or more members. 
Five (5) days notice of all meetings shall be mailed or other- 
wise given to each member. 

The Board of Directors shall choose an Executive Com- 
mittee composed of its President, the President of the Univer- 
sity, and not less than one (1), nor more than three (3) 
other members of the Board of Directors. Such Executive 
Committee shall have the right and duty to perform all the 

Oglethorpe University 161 

functions of the Board of Directors when such Board is not 
in session. It shall report its actions to the next meeting of 
such Board. Upon reports being made the Board of Directors 
may, at its next meeting, if any member of the Executive 
Committee has objection to any action of the Committee, re- 
view and approve, set aside or change such Committee ac- 

(C) The Board of Trustees shall be the present Trustees 
and their respective successors when elected by the Board of 
Directors. The Directors shall have power to elect the Trus- 
tees and prescribe by by-law their tenure of office and the 
number of not less than five (5) nor more than nine (9), of 
which number the President of the University, the President 
and Secretary of the Board of Directors, shall be ex officio 
members, the President of the Board of Directors being ex 
officio Chairman. 

The Board of Trustees shall meet upon the call of its 
Chairman, upon five (5) days notice. Such notice may be 
given orally or in writing. No one shall be eligible to mem- 
bership on the Board of Trustees unless he is a member of 
the Board of Directors and also a member of a Presbyterian 

The Board of Trustees shall have sole power over the 
sale and purchase and to fix the terms thereof of real prop- 
erty, used or for use by the University as a campus or build- 
ing, not held as endowment, and to authorize the execution 
of mortgages or other liens. 

All contracts of the University shall be executed by the 
President or Chairman of the authority having control over 
the subject-matter and countersigned by its Secretary in the 
name and under the seal of the corporation. 

The OGLETHORPE UNIVERSITY has no capital stock 
and all property owned or hereafter acquired by it is to be 
held for the purposes of an educational university. Petition- 
ers desire that the OGLETHORPE UNIVERSITY when in- 
corporated shall have the right to sue and be sued, to plead 
and be impleaded, to have and to use a common seal, to make 
all necessary by-laws and regulations; and to do all other 
things that may be necessary for the successful accomplish- 
ment of its purposes as a university; with the right to execute 
notes and bonds as evidence of indebtedness incurred or which 
may be incurred in the conduct of the affairs of the corpora- 
tion, and to secure the same, except as limited above, by 
mortgage, security-deed, bond or other form of lien under ex- 
isting laws as well as under any other laws that may here- 
after be passed. 

They desire for said corporation the power and authority 

162 Oglethorpe University 

to apply for and accept amendments to its charter of either 
form or substance by a vote of a majority of its Board of 

They desire for the said corporation the right of renewal 
when and as provided by the laws of Georgia, and that it 
have all such other rights, powers, privileges and immunities 
as are incident to like corporations or permissible under the 
laws of Georgia. 

WHEREFORE, petitioner prays for amendments of its 
charter as hereinbefore stated and that petitioner have all the 
powers in its original charter and amendments thereto except 
as changed by this amendment, and all the powers contained 
in this amendment and in the laws of the State of Georgia, 
or that may hereafter be in force.
