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 thonghts, my noblest feelings, my fin- 
est ambitions. 

I believe in my Messiaship, 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 of 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 Faculty of the University 

The Board of Directors of Oglethorpe University, real- 
izing the responsibility upon them of selecting a faculty 
whose spiritual and intellectual equipment should be cap- 
able of satisfying the tremendous demands of a really 
great institution of learning, have spared no effort or 
pains in securing a body of men who would not only pos- 
sess 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 intellectual acquirements adequate for 
their departments. The most important element in edu- 
cation is the creating in the student of an intense 
yearning for and delight 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 
object 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 representative 
and cosmopolitan American corps of teachers.

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 eventuat- 
ed in the founding of a manual training school, and this 
in turn, became Oglethorpe College in 1 835 when Mid- 
way Hill, in the suburbs of Milledgeville, then the 
capital of the state of Georgia, was chosen for the 
location of the institution. Old Oglethorpe College was 
thus the first denominational college or university be- 
tween the Atlantic 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 hand- 
somest 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 Wood- 
row, the brilliant and devoted Christian and scientist, 
Samuel K. Talmadge, the eminent administrator and 
many others. It is, perhaps, the chief glory of old 

Oglethorpe University 25 

Oglethorpe that after three years of instruction she 
graduated Sidney Lanier of the famous class of 1 860 
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, look- 
ing 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 in- 
fluence of Dr. Woodrow. Her other eminent alumni 
include governors, justices, moderators of the General 
Assembly, discoverers, inventors and a host of honest, 
industrious and superb laborers for the highest ideals 
of humanity. 

Oglethorpe "died at Gettysburg," for during the war 
her sons were soldiers, her endowment was invested 
in Confederate bonds, and her buildings which were used 
for barracks and hospitals, were later destroyed. 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 im- 
possible, 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 present 
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 approached the sum of a million dollars as the 
result of unusual and self-sacrificing liberality on the 
part of over five hundred people. 

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

26 Oglethorpe University 

The Opening, September 20, 1916 

Oglethorpe University opened her doors in the au- 
tumn of 1916. After 50 years of rest beneath the gray 
ashes of fratricidal strife she rose to breathe the airs 
of a new day. Her first building, constructed of gran- 
ite trimmed with limestone, covered with variegated 
slates and as near fire proof as human skill can make 
it, was ready for occupancy in the fall of 1916, when 
the first class gathered on her beautiful campus on 
Peachtree Road. A faculty equal to that of any cog- 
nate institution in the country was formed. The work 
of raising funds and new construction goes steadily 
on. All of this has been done in the midst of financial 
disaster that has darkened the spirit of the whole nation. 

The Romance of Her Resurrection 

The story of the resurrection of Oglethorpe reads 
like a romance. Beginning only twenty-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 Galveston, Texas to Charlottesville, 
Virginia, and from Marshall, Missouri, to Bradenton, 
Florida, each one of them giving $1,000 or more to the 
enterprise; the splendid triumph of the Atlanta cam- 
paigns; all this is well known. Since that time the same 

Oglethorpe University 27 

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 illustrated 
material accompanying this catalogue. 

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 archi- 
tecture is Collegiate Gothic; the building material is a 
beautiful blue granite trimmed with limestone. All the 
buildings are covered with heavy variegated slates. The 
interior construction is of steel, concrete, brick and 
hollow tile. The building given by Mr. and Mrs. Lup- 
ton and their son, our beloved benefactors, is the one 
with the tower just opposite on the left of the entrance. 
Lowry Hall, the gift of Col. and Mrs. R. J. Lowry, stands 
completed at the end of the main axis directly in front 
of the entrance. The total cost of construction of the 
buildings mentioned above with the land and the land- 
scape work required, will be approximately $4,000,000. 
The building plan will be followed out in its entirety. 

The Oglethorpe Campus 

By the generosity of Mr. William Randolph Hearst, 
Oglethorpe is the possessor of one of the finest college 
campuses in the entire world. In the summer of 1929 
Mr. Hearst gave to the University the entire Silver 
Lake Estates, four hundred acres of primeval forest 

28 Oglethorpe University 

surrounding an eighty-acre lake with something like 
five miles of graded road winding through it. As this 
property immediately adjoins two hundred acres already 
possessed by the University, the completed campus 
consists of a body of six hundred acres of land in one 
tract in the immediate vicinity of Atlanta, on Peachtree 
Road and on the main line of the Southern Railroad. 
This gift of Mr. Hearst provides for the University ample 
space for future development and protects its growth 
from encroachment by urban Atlanta whose suburbs 
are rapidly surrounding the campus. 

Hermance Stadium 

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

Her Spiritual and Intellectual Ideals 

But it is not so much the magnificent exterior of 
the institution about which the men who are founding 
Oglethorpe are most concerned, it is the spiritual and 
intellectual life of their university. To that end they 
have resolved to maintain a faculty and a curriculum 
that will be of the highest possible quality, their thought 

Oglethorpe University 29 

being excellence in every department. They are taking 
the superb traditions of the Old Oglethorpe and adding 
the best of the present age to them. 

Founders' Book 

In the Founders' Room at Oglethorpe there will be 
a book containing the name of every man, woman and 
child who aided in the founding of the University, ar- 
ranged alphabetically by states. That Book will be 
accessible to every student and visitor who may want 
to know who it v/as 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, because 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 Oglethorpe University forever. It will 
be bound in a handsome metal and leather cover given 
by J. F. Jacobs. 

Clock and Chimes 

In the tower of the building given by Mr. and Mrs. 
J. T. Lupton, is installed a clock and chimes, with three 
dials, ten bells and night illumination, the gift of friends 
of the University. It is interesting to note that this is 
the only set of chimes on any college campus in Georgia. 
Concerts 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 spec- 
ialists in professional and business life and teachers 

30 Oglethorpe University 

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 advanced 
courses which are to be offered. 

Adequate library and laboratory facilities are provided. 
Free use is made of the city of Atlanta, in itself a re- 
markable laboratory of industrial and scientific life, 
whose museums, libraries, and municipal plants are at 
the disposal of our students for observation, 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. 

Near the entrance to the campus is the term- 
inus of the Oglethorpe University bus line, and 
an attractive little stone station of the Southern Rail- 
way main line between Atlanta and Washington. The 
first building to be located on the campus, the Ad- 
ministration Building, contains in the basement a dining 
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 hospital and dormi- 
tories. Lupton Hall contains the library, the President's 
office, class rooms, dormitories, an Assembly Hall seat- 
ing approximately six hundred, equipped also as a the- 
atre for the presentation of student dramats, and in the 
basement, basketball court,, swimming pool, lockers and 
showers, and quarters of the University Press. The Uni- 

Oglethorpe University 31 

versity Press is equipped with a Babcock optimus press, 
linotype machine and two job presses, with a number of 
type stands and other printing equipment given by John 
Dillard Jacobs. 

Lowry Hall houses the Lowry School of Banking and 
Commerce, and the Art Studios. It is largely a replica 
of old Corpus Christi College, Oxford, the alma mater of 
James Edward Oglethorpe. It contains class rooms and 
dormitories, and will stand as a perpetual memorial to 
the generosity of Colonel R. J. Lowry and Emma Mark- 
ham 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 Mathe- 
matics. A student who has completed in a secondary 
school two years of a foreign language will not receive 
credit for a beginner's course in the same language. The 
candidate must present at least three units in English 

* 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. 

32 Oglethorpe University 

and two units in Mathematics. A unit represents a 
year's study in any subject in an accredited 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 registra-

ability to do the work of the classes which they wish to 
enter. Such students may become regular only by 
absolving all entrance requirements. 

Persons under twenty-one years of age desiring to 
pursue special courses not leading to a degree may do 
so as unregistered students upon the passage of an ex- 
amination or examinations satisfactory to the Dean of 
the department in v/hich the work is to be done. 

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

Standards for Georgia Colleges* 

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

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

34 Oglethorpe University 

(a) A basis of granting charters to new or proposed 
higher educational institutions under the provisions of 
Section 14 of the Georgia Code. ** 

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

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

It is, therefore, agreed that: 

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

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

Standards for Colleges 

/. Definition: 

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

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

Oglethorpe University 35 

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

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

(c) Which organizes its curricula in such a way that 
the early years are a continuation of, and supple- 
ment 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 secon- 
dary school approved by a recognized accrediting 
agency or the equivalent of such a course, as shown by 
examination. The major portion of the secondary 
school course accepted for admission should be definite- 
ly correlated with the curriculum to which the student 
is admitted. 

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

3. Graduation: 

A college shall require for graduation the comple- 
tion of a minimum quantitative requirement of 120 

36 Oglethorpe University 

semester hours of credit (or the equivalent in term 
hours, quarter hours, points, majors, or courses) with 
further qualitative requirements adapted by each in- 
stitution to its conditions. 

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

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 
requiremnets 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 

Oglethorpe University 37 

of courses offered. With the growth of the student body, 
the number of full-time teachers should be correspond- 
ingly increased. The development of varied curricula 
should involve the addition of other heads of depart- 

7. Training of Faculty: 

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

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

8. Faculty Load: 

The number of hours of class room work given by 
each teacher will vary in different departments. To 
determine this, the amount of preparation required for 
the class and the amount of time needed for study 
to keep abreast of the subject, together with the number 
of students, must be taken into account. Teaching 
schedules, including classes for part-time students, ex- 
ceeding 18 recitation hours or their equivalent per week 
per instructor, will be interpreted as endangering edu- 
cational 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- 

38 Oglethorpe University 

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 pre- 
ceding its application for accrediting, that its charges 
and expenditures are such as to show a minimum 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. 

7 / . 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 subject taught, administered by a full-time pro- 
fessionally trained librarian, and with a definite annual 
appropriation for the purchase of new books. 

72. 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 

73. General Equipment and Buildings: 

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

Oglethorpe University 39 

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 stu- 
dents 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 honorary 
degrees, provision in the curriculum for breadth of 
study and for concentration, soundness of scholarship, 
the practice of scientific spirit including freedom of 
investigation and teaching, loyalty to facts, and en- 
couragement of efficiency, initative and originality in 
investigation and teaching, the tone of the institution, 
including the existence and culture of good morals and 
ideals, and satisfaction and enthusiasm among stu- 
dents and staff shall be factors in determining its 

16. Extra-Curricular Activities: 

The proper administration of athletics, student publi- 

40 Oglethorpe University 

cations, student organizations, and all extra-curricular 
activities, is one of the fundamental tests of a standard 
college, and therefore, should be considered in classi- 

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 Education. 
The blank shall be filed again for each of the three 
years after the college has been approved, and trien- 
nially thereafter, but the Department may for due cause 
call upon any member to file a new report at any time. 
Failure to file the blank as required shall be cause for 
dropping an institution. 

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

Oglethorpe University was the first educational in- 
stitution in Georgia to be inspected and fully 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- 

Oglethorpe University 41 


The following regulations are made by the State 
Board of Education for the protection of standards on 
which teachers are certificated and on which the state 
salary schedule is based. We request the full coopera- 
tion of teachers, superintendents, principals, and col- 
lege authorities in making them effective. 

1. Regulation 15 of the last (1940) bulletin on cer- 
tification is as follows: 

"A teacher who is regularly employed may not re- 
ceive credit for more than three courses (10 se- 
mester hours, 15 quarter hours, 5 college hours) 
begun or completed within the school year. No 
regularly employed teacher may receive during any 
year, including summer school, credit for more 
than seven courses 23 1-3 semester hours)." 

In the cases of all work done after September 1, 1941, 
this regulation will be interpreted as follows: 

a. During any three months in which he is regu- 
larly employed, a teacher may not earn credit 
for more than one course. Credits exceeding 
one course during any quarter will not be car- 
ried forward to be accepted the following year. 

b. During any six weeks of summer school, not 
more than two courses or 6 2-3 semester hours 
of credit may be earned. 

c. A teacher who is employed regularly for nine 
months may thus earn a total credit of three 

42 Oglethorpe University 

courses during the school year, four courses in 
a twelve weeks' summer school, or a total of 
seven courses the calendar year. 

2. Regulation 16 is as follows: 

"Not more than one-fourth of the total credit re- 
quired for any certificate may be earned by cor- 
respondence or class extension. This regulation 
will not be retroactive for the dates prior to Sep- 
tember 1, 1939." 

Oglethorpe University 43 

General Information 


1. Each student will first report to the Dean of the 
school in which he wishes to register. With his course 
and schedule approved by his Dean, the student 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 admited 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 profesor is to notify the Registrar immediately. 
Failure of the professor to do so does not excuse the 
student from the financial obligation involved. 

5. As soon as course cards are received from the 
Registrar's office, each profesor 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 v/hich 
the student is enrolled. 

44 Oglethorpe University 

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

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 charged 
for any student who registers after the dates set aside 
for registration as per college calendar. 

1 0. 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 stu- 
dent is advised to get an estimate of his expenses before 
the term begins. 

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

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 begin- 
ning of the winter and spring terms. 


A penalty of $1.00 will be charged each student mov- 
ing articles of furniture from one room to another with- 
out permission from either the Bursar's office or the 
Cashier's office. This fine will also be charged any stu- 
dent changing his room without permission from the 

A fine of $1.00 a day (up to one-third of the term) 

Oglethorpe University 45 

will be charged for late registration. Winter and Spring 

A fine of $5.00 is charged if any student attends a 
class or examination without registration, which in- 
cludes payment of charges. 


As a basis for determining the classes to which a stu- 
dent shall belong, the following regulation is to apply: 
a first year student must have fulfilled the requirements 
for entrance to his classes 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 admis- 
sion to either of the four college classes, or membership 
in any of the social fraternities or sororities or the ath- 
letic 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 until the deficiencies are ab- 
solved. Back work in a required subject must be made 
up within the next term; otherwise the student will be 
excluded from the class to which he would naturally 


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 applies to special 

46 Oglethorpe University 

Freshmen, Sophomores, and Juniors may not take 
more than 1 8 hours a week unless they have made an 
average of B with no grade below C in the previous 
term. If a student wishes to make more than 20 hours, 
the written consent of the Dean must be secured, re- 
gardless of the average made. Seniors are 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 Yama- 
craw. 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 account 
of failure to pass or absence from the University, the 
student is to pay a fee of $2.00, receipt for which must 
be secured from the Cashier and presented to the pro- 
fessor before the examination is given. The examina- 
tion 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 $5.00 is imposed upon any 
student taking a re-examination without having paid 
this $2 fee in advance. 


A student accumulating a total of ten unexcused 
absences from all classes in one term will forfeit one 
hour of credit and two quality points. A total of four 

Oglethorpe University 47 

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 the head of the infirmary. Absences 
concerning college affairs are to be referred to and ap- 
proved by Dean Patrick. Reports on absences are to be 
filed in the Registrar's office, and students are not to 
be excused by any other faculty member. 

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 letter 
will be written to his parents 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 Uni- 

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, provided 

Unexcused absences will be counted against a student who is 
in arrears on the payment of dues, dating from the time when 
payment is due. 

48 Oglethorpe University 

however that if such student has registered for the 
ensuing term he may continue until the completion 
thereof, and if he shall have exhibited a marked im- 
provement in his studies, the Dean of his department 
may recommend to the faculty the continuance of such 


No withdrawal 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 class cannot be construed as definite with- 
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 1942-43 Oglethorpe University will 
offer courses in the undergraduate classes of eight 
schools leading to the customary academic degrees. 
The degree of Bachelor of Arts (A.B.) in Liberal Arts 
will be conferred upon those students satisfactorily 
completing a four years' course as outlined below, based 
largely on the study of the languages. The degree of 
Bachelor of Arts in Science will be conferred upon 
those students who satisfactorily complete a four years' 
course largely in scientific studies. The degree of 
Bachelor of Arts in Literature and Journalism will be 
given to those students who complete a course including 
work in languages, literature and journalism. The de- 

Oglethorpe University 49 

gree of Bachelor of Arts in Commerce will be conferred 
upon those students who satisfactorily complete a full 
four years' course in the studies relating particularly 
to the business administration. The degree of Bachelor 
or Arts in Education will be conferred upon those stu- 
dents who complete the studies in the School of Edu- 
cation. The degree of Bachelor of Arts in Secretarial 
Preparation will be conferred upon those students who 
complete the studies in that School. 

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

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

By a careful study of the courses outlined below, the 
student will easily be able to make the choice most suit- 
able to his taste 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 look- 
ing 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 intend to 
spend their lives in the business world, the A.B. course 
in Commerce, or the A.B. course in Secretarial Prepara- 
tion; those who expect to teach, the A.B. course in Edu- 

While each of these courses is so shaped as to in- 
fluence the student toward 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 

50 Oglethorpe University 

necesary to the making of a life as distinguished 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 

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

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

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

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

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

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 dvision. The student lack- 
ing the required 30 points will be required to remain 
in the junior college until the needed quality points 
have been achieved through further studies. For gradua- 
tion in the senior college the student must have achiev- 
ed 30 additional quality points for graduation and the 
degree. Transfer students must achieve 15 quality 
points for each year spent in study in Oglethorpe Uni- 

No fractional credits made either in Oglethorpe Uni- 
versity or by transcript from another institution will be 
recognized for graduation in any freshman or sophomore 

All transfer credits in order to be acceptable to Ogle- 
thorpe University must come from standard institutions 
of at least junior college or normal grade. 

Oglethorpe University 51 

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 

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. 

All diplomas and degrees of Oglethorpe University are 
granted upon the basis of credits for regular class room 
attendance and the successful passing of examinations. 
No credits are given for any form of private instruction 
nor for any course in which the student was not formally 
registered. All courses for which credits are given 
must be advertised in the catalogue or filed in advance 
in writing with the Registrar by the Dean of the Depart- 
ment in which they are offered and approved by the 
President of the University, and must be announced by 
bulletin as available 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 University. 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 graduatoin, 
a written application, by filling out a blank form prepar- 
ed for the purpose. The student is held responsible for 
filing this application.

University Expenses 


No charges are made for the usual College fees such 
as matriculation, laboratories, infirmary, contingent, 
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 1 2 to 17 credit 
hours of work per week. No student is permitted to take 
less than 12 hours per week and those students who take 
more than 17 credit hours per week are required to pay 
for the extra hours at the rate of $15.00 per hour. These 
sums are payable in cash in advance, at the beginning 
of each term, but the Cashier 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 fee is applicable also to charges for board and 
room rent. 

In the Adult Education Department, charges are 
$13.50 for Vi course, subject to discount of one-third 
to teachers, $9.00 per half course, r\e\. The summer 
school charges for 1942 are the same as charges in 
Adult Education Department. Room, $36.00 for the 
entire summer term or $18.00 for each half. Board, 
$90.00 for entire summer term or $45.00 for each half. 
Relatives and friends who do not attend college classes 
may board in the dormitories by paying the regular 
"oom rent and board charges. 

Oglethorpe University 53 

Students holding self help positions are not allowed 

liy additional discount on bills or permitted to hold 

iny 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 build- 
ings of the University will be like those now finished, 
which are believed to be entirely fireproof, being con- 
structed of steel, concrete, and granite with partitions of 
brick and hollow tile. 

The rates named are based upon two grades of rooms. 
The charge for rent is based on the size and conven- 
iences of each room. The price charged includes first 
class board, steam heat and electric lights, water and 
janitor's service; all rooms are furnished adequately and 
substantially. Every room in the dormitory contains 
ample closet and |or wardrobe space. The rooms are 
large, airy, safe and comfortable. 

The furniture is of substantial quality and is ap- 
proximately the same for all rooms, including chiffon- 
ier, study-table, chairs, single beds, springs and mat- 
tresses. Room linen, pillows and bed clothing are fur- 
nished 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 

54 Oglethorpe University 

meals at the cafeteria. Students employed by the Uni- 
versity must board and room on the campus. 

The charge for board and room rent per term is as 

Board: The minimum charge for board is $90.00 
per term. 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 re- 
sponsibility for, and will not replace, any meal tickets 
which may be lost or mutilated. All charges are pay- 
able in advance by the term, of approximatetly eleven 
weeks as per college calendar, and no rebate is allowed 
for any reason. The particular attention of the student 
is called to the fact that the issuance of these meal 
tickets is for their convenience, solely; that they are 
good only for meals taken during the term for which 
they are issued and that the minimum charge for them 
is $90.00 for each term, and is not subject to rebate of 
any kind on account of failure of students to use the 
tickets which are furnished them. 

Room Rent: Minimum charge for room rent is $36 
per term, two to a room. 

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 cafe- 
teria prices at will, as conditions may require. 

All charges are based upon and payable by the term, 
in advance, not by the month or year. The lengths of 
terms are specified in the college calendar. When 
payments are permitted under special conditions the 

Oglethorpe University 55 

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 indicated 
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 requirements are greater are 
expected to purchase extra 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 


Upon petition of the Student Body, a special stu- 
dent activity fee of $10.00 per term will be charged 
for the session beginning September, 1942. The $30.00 
fee will entitle the student to a subscription of the week- 

56 Oglethorpe University 

\y student paper, The Stormy Petrel ($1 .50 per year) and 
The Yamacraw, (student year book), and to ten tickets 
to each of the football games played at Hermance Sta- 
dium during the autumn of 1942. 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 University during 
the above mentioned session. 


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

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 
as may occur. By this means prolonged and serious illness 

Oglethorpe University 57 

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 requirement satis- 
fied by the hospitals of the city. 

The University makes no charge to the students for 
infirmary service, which includes also the attendance 
of the college physician in the infirmary. In case of 
special illness requiring operations or the services of 
specialists, while the University frequently isabletosecure 
reduced rates for students, yet" we assume no re- 
sponsibility 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-collegiate 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 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 ter- 
minals in Atlanta may board "Oglethorpe" street buses 
at the points listed below. This method of trans- 

5S Oglethorpe University 

portation is much more economical than by taxicab. 

Students arriving at the Terminal Station in Atlanta 
may walk a distance of five blocks (down Mitchell Street 
to Broad Street Street, up Broad Street to the southwest 
corner of Broad and Walton Streets) and board the bus. 

Students arriving at the Union Station may walk a 
distance of three blocks, to Broad and Walton and 
board the bus. 

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 bus at this point. 

Fares on busses in Atlanta are ten cents for one 
fare (cash) or two tokens for fifteen cents. These tok- 
ens may be purchased from the bus operator. 

Summer Session 

The summer session of Oglethorpe University meets 
the requirements of regular students who desire to speed 
up their courses or to make up work that is unsatis- 
factory. It also serves a large number of teachers 
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 Session. 

Graduate School 

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

Oglethorpe University 59 

courses in all departments leading to the Master's degree. 
In supplying this need, the management of the Uni- 
versity will be content only with the very highest grades 
of work and facilities. 

Courses leading to the Master's degree in certain 
departments will be found outlined elsewhere in this 
catalogue, under the appropriate department heading. 
This degree is based upon that of Bachelor of Arts 
of Oglethorpe University or of some other approved 
institution. The candidate must carry an aggregate 
of fifteen hours 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 of a year hour. Transfer credits (maximum 
three and one-third year hours) will be allowed. The 
work must be of graduate grade, and must be approved 
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 accomplished, 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 be present not less than two 
years (six year hours of 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 residence is 
required for the Master's degree. A minimum of one 
year or approximately nine months' residence is re- 

60 Oglethorpe University 

quired for the Bachelor's degree. Of the fifteen hours 
or nine courses required for the Master'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 iieu of a thesis. 

The Registrar of the University will be pleased to 
answer any inquires as to graduate courses to be offered. 


It being the purpose of the University to offer its 
services only to those students who by their appli- 
cation 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 appointed officials 
are not making satisfactory campus citizens. 

In pursuance of this purpose, a complete list of the 
student body is presented at the close of each term to 
the deans of the University, to the dean of women, to 
the librarian, to the bursar, matron, cashier, football 
coach, superintendent, registrar and to the president 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: 

Oglethorpe University 61 

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 discoutesy to any 
of the faculty or officials. 

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

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

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

The President of the University is directed to 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 considered. 

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

The Faculty and Administrative Officers of the Uni- 
versity reserve to themselves the right to make any 
changes in any of the rules or regulations contained 

62 Oglethorpe University 

herein or to change any of the textbooks or other 
study material which they may deem advisable at any 
time. Notice of any change posted on the regular Bul- 
letin Board maintained by the University shall be suffi-

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 graduation. 
But at least one year of Latin is very desirable for the 
better understanding of English words and English gram- 
mar. Such a course may be taken in college. 

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 arrangement should 
be followed in the main to avoid conflict of classes in 
the later years. Each student in the Liberal Arts 
course should consult the Dean at the very beginning and 
have his work mapped out for the whole four years. 

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

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

Latin 111-2-3.* For entrance into this class the stu- 
dents are expected to have had at least three years of 

Explanation of Course Numbers 

*The numbering- system at Oglethorpe University is based on 
the following principle: All one hundred numbers are fresh- 
man subjects; two hundred numbers are sophomore subjects; 
three hundred numbers are junior subjects, and four hundred

Tacitus and Juvenal. Twice a week throughout the 
year. Elective. Two hours. 

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


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

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

Greek 211-2-3. The preparation for entrance into 

numbers donate 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- 
the n firsf "frm 11 1U is a freshman course in English given in 

Oglethorpe University 65 

this class is not so much a matter of time as of tho- 
-oughness. The student is expected to know the ordi- 
nary Attic inflections and syntax, to have read about 
3ne 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 translating 
English into Greek. Elective. Two hours. 

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

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

Graduate Courses in Latin and Greek 

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

In Latin the following course is offered for the A.M., 
degree: Vergil's complete works; Vergil in the Middle 
Ages; History of Classical Scholarship; Textual Criticism.

Oglethorpe University 71 

School of Literature and Journalism 

J. D. Mosteller, Acting Dean 

The work in the School of Literature and Journalism 
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. 
However, these electives must have a definite relation 
to the complete course which the student is pursuing 
toward a degree. 

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 expected 
to pursue the basic courses in literature, history, econo- 
mics, political science, and sociology. 


English 1 1 1-2-3. 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. Con- 
tinual emphasis is laid on increasing the store of words. 

72 Oglethorpe University 

No student will be permitted to take advanced work in 
English until he has made a satisfactory record in this 
basic course. Three hours. 

English 141-2-3. English Bible. Old Testament. A 
survey study of the major books of the Old Testament. 
Special emphasis is placed on the political development 
of Israel as found in the Pentatetuch and the books of 
history. The Poetical Books and Prophetic Books will 
be studied not only as literature, but as links paving the 
way for the life of Jesus, as recorded in the New Testa- 
ment. Two hours. 

English 21 1-2-3. Survey of English Literature. This 
course comprises: an examination of the history of this 
literature; the study in class and the reading of parallel 
representative literary specimens of its entire develop- 
ment; 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, sat- 
isfactory completion of this course is prerequisite to 
courses offered for juniors and seniors. Three hours. 

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, concerning 
their qualifications. In addition to editing, this course 
will cover writing of the news story, the magazine ar- 
ticle, and the special feature story. Five hours. 

English 23 1 -2-3 . Theory and Practice of Public Speak- 
ing. This course is designed primarily as a prepara- 
tion for and an aid to practical speaking on all kinds of 
formal and informal occasions. This course is re- 

Oglethorpe University 73 

quired in the School of Literature and Journalism. Two 

English 251-2-3. English Bible. 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 sec- 
tarian point of view, or as mere history or literature. 
The aim will be to impart such a knowledge of the 
subject as every intelligent man should possess, enab- 
ling 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 Mythol- 
ogy, 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 en- 
trance. Two hours. 

English 361-2-3. Shakespeare. A brief considera- 
tion of the development of the English drama before 
Shakespeare; an intensive study of at least five plays 
of Shakespeare. 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 covered 
in this course are: the colonial writers and the develop- 

74 Oglethorpe University 

ment of early American literature; the literature of 
the Revolution and of our national development; the 
most prominent writers and movements in American 
literature of the last two generations. Prerequisites, 
English 1 1 1-2-3 and 21 1-2-3. Three hours. 

English 421-2-3. Descriptive 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 con- 
sent of the dean. Three hours. 

English 431-2-3. Argumentation and Debate. An 
advanced public speaking course, this class emphasizes 
the logical and factual presentation of speeches. In ad- 
dition to a workbook on debate and discussion, a study 
is made of such necessary subjects as: the proposition, 
gathering material, refutation, the brief and outlining, 
with a special study of formal debate. The winter term 
consists of class debates on timely resolutions. Pre- 
requisite, English 231-2-3. Two hours. 

English 461-2-3. English Poetry of the Nineteenth 
Century. After a brief survey of the pre-romantic writ- 
ers and some consideration of the individual contribu- 
tions to poetry by Blake and Burns, the chief attention 
of this course will be directed to those poets who have 
made the nineteenth century notable in English poetry. 
Poets particularly emphasized are: Wordsworth, Col- 
eridge, Byron, Keats, and Shelley. This course is re- 
quired of all seniors who take the English major. It 
should be elected by advanced, qualified students who 
desire a distinctly cultural course or who expect to teach.

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

special technique of the particular business or indus- 
try which he will enter. 

The Lowry School offers two regular courses of study, 
the General Business Course and the Accounting course. 
The aim is to concentrate upon the fundamentals of 
business, and with this in view every student is re- 
quired to obtain a thorough knowledge of the basic 
subjects including accounting, finance, economics, and 
business law.

pression. The course will introduce simple and prim- 
itive forms with explanations and illustrations. This

The School of Education 

H. J. Gaertner, Dean 
Leading to the Degree of Bachelor of Arts in Education 

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 dis- 
cipline of this school is a preparation for various lines 
of work beside that of teaching. The school is a good 
preparation for dealing with all forms of human con- 
tact sides of like work. We especially recommend 
the courses in shorthand and typewriting to be taken 
as part of the electives in the third or fourth year or 
earlier by students preparing for secretarial careers, or 
commercial teaching in high schools. 

Students in the Department of Education upon en- 
tering the University Division (third and fourth years) 
or previously thereto, are required to designate the sub- 
ject 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 I I 1-2-3. Orientation in Education. In

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 v/ith the needs and wishes of the stu- 
dent. In each case, the student's course will be plan- 
ned 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 service. To 
earn this amount of credit (3 courses) she will spend 
four clock hours per week in the classroom for three 

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 Aduit 

110 Oglethorpe University 

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 ac- 
tually 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 ex- 
empts the student from the enforcement of this rule. 
Unless written proof that they are entitled to addition- 
al work has been filed in the Registrar's office, Adult 
Education students will automatically receive credit for 
only three courses during the scholastic year, and only 
the three courses will be transferred to the Certifica- 
tion 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, he 
may take two full courses in lieu of a thesis. In that 

Oglethorpe University 111 

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 subject, 
and three and one-half may be elective. If the 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 com- 
bining the year's work and summer school attendance 
will be able to receive their degree in a reasonable length 
of time.

son, Registrar, Oglethorpe University, Ga., or Dr. H. J.

The School of Physical Education 

John W. Patrick, Dean 


It is a generally accepted fact that physical educa- 
tion has a definite function in education. It has to do 
largely with the building of character and the ability of 
the individual to find himself, to make the proper social 
adjustments in the world of which he is a part. To in- 
still these principles into the youth of this nation should 
be the primary objective of all physical educators. 

The acceptance, however, of the idea that physical 
education is a part of education and the constant at- 
tempt to interpret its aim, objectives, and results in 
terms of educational worth lead physical educators to 
measure their methods in relation to current practices 
in the general field. 

Physical education moves forward, and with the rap- 
id growth of health interest in the United States of Am- 
erica, there is a distinct need for leadership in order 
that the movement in Health and Physical Education 
may be made effective by proper guidance. Teacher 
training in physical education is being emphasized by 
every leading college and university in the United States, 
by giving the right kind of instruction through well 
rounded curricula, and for producing trained leaders 
with the highest ideals and objectives. 

The School of Physical Education at Oglethorpe Uni- 
versity realize that there is a great demand for phy- 
sical educators in every community, in elementary and 
high schools, colleges and universities, and the United 
States Armed Forces. We have outlined a splendid 
curriculum, offering courses in every phase pertaining 
to professional study in the field of physical education, 

120 Oglethorpe University 

the completion of which will lead to a degree of Bach- 
elor of Arts in the School of Physical Education. 

The purpose of the School of Physical Education is 
two-fold: To train, protect, and develop the bodies 
of all the students of the university, and to offer a 
special training, equipping for positions as phyysical di- 
rectors and coaches in other schools, colleges and uni- 
versities, the United States Navy and Army, and in Y. 
M. C. A.'s. 

A regular curriculum has been arranged offering in- 
struction in specific subjects for the special preparation 
of students for positions as physical directors and as 
coaches in high schools, prep schools and universities, 
the completion of which will lead to a degree of Bach- 
elor of Arts in the School of Physical Education. 

The science courses are designed especially for stu- 
dents 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 
observation made in demonstration. Each organ is 
studied with reference to its development, anatomy, 
and physiology. Bones, muscles, viscera, etc., have 
meaning when introduced in the light of their develop- 
ment. The facts observed are discussed in lectures 
and quizzes. Free use is made of charts, models, an- 
atomical preparations and microscopic slides. Weekly 
quizzes are supplemented by written tests given upon 
the completion of some general division of the subject. 

We strive to attain the following objectives in phy- 
sical education: To teach health fundamentals. The 
promotion of normal physical growth and development, 
and the building up of physical efficiency, strength, 
and endurance by means of carefully chosen exercises 
— formal gymnastics, games, sports, etc. To correct 

Oglethorpe University 121 

faulty posture and to prevent abnormalities due to bad 
posture. To develop the mental, moral, and social val- 
ues; such as obedience, subordination, co-operation, 
self-control, self-confidence, loyalty, friendliness, per- 
severance and aggresgsiveness. To develop neuromus- 
cular control. To develop the desire for activity and to 
instill the desire for recreation, by stimulating an in- 
terest for academic and physical efficiency by occupy- 
ing one's unoccupied time through wholesome games 
and exercise. 

English 1 1 1-2-3. Composition. This required fresh- 
man course combines extensive 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. Con- 
tinual emphasis is laid on increasing the store of words. 
A vocabulary test is given near the beginning of the 
fall term, to determine what progress each student has 
made. All freshmen will be placed in sections in which 
the work corresponds to their degree of development. 
To this end all freshmen will be given a test on the day 
preceding date of matriculation for the first quarter. 
This test is a prerequisite to entrance to any section of 
Freshman English. No student will be permitted to 
take advanced work in English until he has made a 
satisfactory record in this basic course. Three hours.

126 Oglethorpe University 

Scholarships for Athletics 

We are constantly receiving inquiries from prospec- 
tive students concerning "athletic scholarships." The 
only scholarships offered by the University are given as 
rewards for exceptional high school and college attain- 
ment. 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 cover the student's college expenses 
in large part. The university must necessarily assign 
self-help students taking part in inter-collegiate ath- 
letics to such self-help positions as their engagements 
may permit them to hold. 

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

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

1. All students engaging in 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. 

4. No student at Oglethorpe University shall be 
shown any preferences financially or academically be- 

Oglethorpe University 127 

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 circum- 
stances permit the payment of any moneys for the ser- 
vices of athletes, either by alumni, friends, or by the 
college itself. 

Historiogrophic Museum 

This museum is now being established at Oglethorpe. 
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 anywhere.

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 in required. 

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

The policy of Oglethorpe University includes the 
care of the physical life of our students as a matter 
of large importance. Regular instruction, looking to 
symmetrical development of the entire man will be giv- 
en 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, ten- 
nis courts, etc. Work on Hermance Stadium has be- 
gun and a section is finished providing accommoda- 
tions for five thousand spectators and participants. 

Lake Phoebe 

Besides having those sports common to all well equip- 
ped colleges in the South, Oglethorpe University is the 
fortunate possessor of a beautiful lake covering eighty 
acres located conveniently to the University 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. The lake is admirably suit- 
ed for boating, rowing, swimming and fishing. 

130 Oglethorpe University 

Moral and Religious Atmosphere 

The ability of a college or university to develop worthy 
character in its students depends largely upon that in- 
definable 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 judgments 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 universities 
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 volumes 
for the library. These consist of standard works of Lit- 
erature, History and Science, with many valuable ref- 
erence works in special departments. The private li- 
braries of Dr. Aldrich in Science; of Dr. Nicolassen in 
the Classics and of Dr. Burrows in Education are all 
available for the use of the students in these depart- 
ments. The policy of the institution is to let no year 

Oglethorpe University 131 

go by without the enlargement of the library. A com- 
petent librarian is in charge, and the rooms will be 
open during the year of 1942-43 from 8:30 A.M., to 
9:30 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 seventeen 
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 resolution unanimous- 
ly adopted by the Faculty of the university, upon rec- 
ommendation of the President: 

"Resolved, that on and after September 1st, 1922, 
the Coat-of-Arms of Oglethorpe University shall be giv- 
en to those students carrying a minimum of fifteen 
hours weekly, of excellent personal character and con- 
duct, whose general average for all the courses taken 
during five preceding consecutive terms shall have been 
not less than 93, or who, in lieu of said general average, 


Oglethorpe University 

shall have so distinguished themselves in some intel- 
lectual, creative, or constructive accomplishment as to 
entitle them thereto in the judgment of the faculty."

The Oglethorpe Idea 

Quality is the word that expersses 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 Ogle- 

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 va- 
riegated slates. All of them v/ill be as fire proof as 
human skill can make them, and as commodious and 
comfortable as our architects can plan them. They 
will be like the first buildings already erected, which 
are believed to be the safest, most beautiful and most 
efficient college or university buildings in the South- 

The Oglethorpe Site — Atlanta 

The attractions of the city of Atlanta as an educa- 
tional center are fast making it one of the great in- 
tellectual dynamos of the nation. Gifted with a soft 
Southern mountain climate, convenient of access to 
the entire nation over its many lines of railway, known 
everywhere as the center of Southern activities, she 
draws to herself as to a magnet the great minds of 
the nation and the world. Hither come lecturers, mu- 
sicians, statesmen, evangelists, editors, teachers and 
officials of the United States. An intellectual atmos- 
phere created by such conditions and the frequent op- 
portunity of contact with these leaders in all branches 
of human activity, offered frequently to our students, 
give Oglethorpe University an advantage of position 
and of opportunity which she will cultivate to the ut- 
most. Facilities for hearing and meeting the great mu- 
sicians and authors and public speakers and the leaders 
in all spheres of intellectual activity are offered our 
students. The tremendous influence of such contact 

Oglethorpe University 135 

upon the young lives committed to us will be felt in 
their increased ambition and redoubled determination 
to perform, themselves, their duty to their race and 
their God. 

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 furnishing of 
their rooms and the ugly forbidding architecture of the 
buildings, whose walls often deface their campus. The 
architecture of an institution of learning should be a 
constant source of delight and inspiration to its stu- 
dents, teaching quietly but surely the highest ideals of 
life. Indeed all those qualities of soul we know as hon- 
esty, solidity, dignity, durability, reverence and beauty 
may be expressed in the face of a building and are so 
expressed on the Oglethorpe campus. 

Not less important are the personal surroundings of 
the student's room. Cheap, ugly and ill-equipped 
apartments have exactly the same influence on the 
soul of a boy that cheap, ugly and ill-equipped human 
companions have. That is why the rooms at Ogle- 
thorpe are 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 call- 
ed decency is essentially and dangerously defective. 

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

The Crypt of Civilization 

Something new in the history of the world has taken 
place at Oglethorpe University. This is the conception 

136 Oglethorpe University 

and inauguration of the most unique archeological pro- 
ject in the history of mankind. It is also the integra- 
tion and correlation of all known facts regarding our 
civilization today, and the preservation of the result 
of this research for the people who inhabit 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 civili- 
zation has there been a conscious attempt to preserve 
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 impossible to 
have carried it out. Only modern advancement in 
science has made this possible, and only one person in 
the known history of the world ever visioned this stu- 
pendous task. 

It v/as not until in 1935 that Dr. Thornweil Jacobs, 
the president of Oglethorpe University, while teaching 
his Cosmic History class suddenly realized the above 
fact. At first he put it aside as impracticable of ac- 
complishment owing to the tremendous labor involved, 
but the idea grew upon him, and he finally decided to 
carry it out. In 1936 in consultation with Orson Munn, 
of the Scientific American, a beginning was made, and 
the Scientific American announced the project and in- 
vited suggestions from scientists and laymen for carry- 
ing out the work. 

The Bureau of Standards at Washington was con- 
sulted immediately for details of procedure. Dr. Ja- 
cobs decided to place the time for the opening of the 
"Crypt of Civilization", as he named it, as far in the 
future as our written records go into the past, namely, 
6,177 years, which would have made the time for the 
unsealing A. D., 81 13. 

Oglethorpe University 137 

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 Company 
for the "Time Capsule", which was a miniature edi- 
tion 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 scientist 
living in Salem, Ohio, T. K. Peters, who wrote Dr. Ja- 
cobs, 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 Ogle- 
thorpe, which he did, and in conference at the Univer- 
sity 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 has been 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 
Encyclopedia, for it is a compendium of everything that 
civilized man knows today. 

These microfilmed books, records, pictures, etc., are 
preserved in glass containers in which inert gases have 
been substituted for the air. These glass containers 
are, in turn, placed inside transite (asbestos) and stain- 
less steel cases. The crypt was sealed on Saturday, 
May 25th, 1940 to remain inviolate for 6,166 years. 

138 Oglethorpe University 

The Exceptional Opportunities of Our 
Persona! Atftention 

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 Ogle- 

Public Utilities 

Oglethorpe University has the double advantage of 
being located in the suburbs of Atlanta, so far out as 
not to be subject to the distractions of city life, yet 
so near in as to enjoy all the public utilities of a great 
city. Among these are city water, electric lights, city 
trolley line, telephone and telegraph service, and in 
addition thereto the University has its own postoffice, 
express office and railway station, all known as Ogle- 
thorpe University, Georgia. 

Woman's Board 

One of the most remarkable gatherings, even in this 
city of remarkable gatherings, was the assembling of 
approximately two hundred of the representative wo- 
men of the city of Atlanta at the home of President 

Oglethorpe University 139 

Thornwel! Jacobs, Saturday afternoon, November 25, 
1916, to organize a Woman's Board for Oglethorpe 

The purpose of the Board is to aid the University 
in every v/ise and efficient way, with counsel of, and 
guidance by the proper authorities of the institution. 
Already more than four hundred women of the city have 
offered their services and joined the organization. Their 
activities are directed toward the support and develop- 
ment of Oglethorpe in every phase of its growth and 
activities. Each of the ladies is assigned to the com- 
mittee on which she feels she is best able to serve. 
These committees cover the various departments of the 
University. They are: Ways and Means, Finance, Press, 
Grounds, Entertainment, Hospital, Music, Library, Arts, 
Refreshments, Transportation, and such other commit- 
tees 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 do- 
nated or bequeathed to the University through the Wo- 
man's Board.
