Father of Wisdom, Master of the Schools of 
Men, of thine all-knowledge grant me this my 
prayer:that i may be wise in thee. Sink Thou 
my Foundations down deep into Thy bosom until 
they rest upon the vast rock of Thy counsel. 
Lift Thou my walls into the clear empyrean of 
Thy Truth. Cover me with the wings that 
shadow from all harm. Lay my threshold in 

HONOR and my lintels IN LOVE. SET THOU MY 

floors in the cement of unbreaking friendship and 
may my windows be transparent with honesty. 
Lead Thou unto me, Lord God, those whom Thou 


WITH THE Light of the World. Let them see, O 
MY LORD, Him Whom thou hast shown me; let 
THEM hear Him Whose voice Has whispered to me 


Him Who has gently led me unto this good day. 
Rock-ribbed may i stand for Thy Truth. Let the 
storms of evil beat about me in vain. May i 
safely shelter those who come unto me from 
the winds of error. let the lightning that lies 
in the cloud of ignorance break upon my head in

The details of the management of Oglethorpe University 
are handled by an Executive Committee of twenty-one men. 
The General Board of Trustees and Founders meets at least 
once each year, at commencement time, on the university 
campus near Atlanta, to inspect the institution, to review all 
matters of large importance in the University, and to give 
directions to the Executive Committee which is elected by 
them and from their number, and which attends to the 
details of management of the Institution between the meet- 
ings of the Board of Founders. Each member of the Board 
represents a gift of two thousand dollars or more to the 
University, or an annual gift of not less than $100.00. 

Thus there is no one associated with the ownership or 
control of the institution in an important capacity who is 
not making a personal sacrifice in its behalf. 

Nothing more ideal has ever been proposed in the man- 
agement of an institution. It is already in operation and 
its perfect practibility is largely responsible for the marvel- 
ous success of the University. 

Prospective students will not fail to note the quaHty of 
these men, representing the thousands of men and women 
whose sacrifices and prayers have consummated this fine 
purpose. As represen fives and governors of the Institution 
they will take pleasure in giving any inquirers information- 
as to the aims and progress of the University.

18 Oglethorpe University 


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 distances 
which must be traveled by stage or on horseback, suggested ' 
the building of a similar institution under the auspices of 
Presbyterianism in the South. The movement began With 
the Spring meeting of Hopewell Presbytery in the year 1823, 
and eventuated in the founding of a manual school, and this, 
in turn, became Oglethorpe College in 1835 when Midway 
Hill, in the suburbs of Milledgeville, then the capital of the 
State of Georgia, was chosen for the location of the Institu- 
tion. Old Oglethorpe College was thus the first denomina- 
tional college or university between 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 institu- 
tions which were born after her in this vast empire. 

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

In the Faculty of the Institution may be found the names 
of men who are world-famous. Among these were Joseph 
Le Conte, the great geologist; James Woodrow, 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 that after three years of in- 
struction she graduated Sidney Lanier in the famous class 
of 1859 and that he was a tutor to her sons until the Spring 
of '61 when with the Oglethorpe cadets he marched away 

Oglethorpe University 19 

to the wars. Shortly before his death, Lanier, looking back 
over his career, remarked to a friend that the greatest moral 
impulse of his life had come to him during his college days 
at Oglethorpe through the influence of Dr. Woodrow. Her 
other eminent alumni include governors, justices, modera- 
tors of the General Assembly, discoverers, inventors and a 
host of honest, industrious and superb laborers for the high- 
est ideals of humanity. 

Oglethorpe, "died at Gettysburg," for during the war her 
sons were soldiers, her endowment was in Confederate 
bonds, and her buildings, used as barracks and hospital, were 
later burned. An effort was made to revive the institution 
in the 70's and to locate it in Atlanta, but the evils of recon- 
struction days and financial disaster made the adventure im- 
possible and unsuccessful, and after a year and a half of 
struggle the doors were closed for the second time. 

Only ten years have passed since the campaign to refound 
began and they have been years of financial disaster and 
utter turmoil, yet the assets and subscription pledges of 
the institution have passed the sum of a million dollars as 
the result of unusual and self-sacrificing liberality on the 
part of over five thousand 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.) 


Oglethorpe University opened her doors in the Fall of 1916. 
After fifty 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 granite, trimmed with limestone, 
covered with slate and as near fireproof as human skill can 
make it, was ready for occupancy in the fall of 1916, when 

20 Oglethorpe University 

her first class gathered on her beautiful campus on Peach- 
tree Road. A faculty equal to that of any cognate institu- 
tion in the country has been formed. The work of raising 
funds and new construction goes steadily on. And all of this 
has been done in the midst of financial disaster that darken- 
ed the spirit of the whole nation, and against the evil influ- 
ences of a colossal war, which caused the very joints of the 
world to gape. 


The story of the resurrection of Oglethorpe reads like a 
romance. Beginning only ten years ago with a contribu- 
tion of$100.00 a year for ten years, 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-see- 
ing educational leaders, who wished to erect a certain high 
type of institution in this splendid metropolis. The story 
of how dollar was added to dollar during a 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 
has been told in citie>, towns and country all over the South 
from Galveston, Texas, to Charlottesville, Virginia, and from 
Marshall, Missouri, to Bradentown, Florida; the splendid 
triumph of the Atlanta campaign staged in this city just 
eight years ago; all this is well known. Since that time the 
same wonderful record has been maintained. There are 
now something like five thousand men, women and children 
all of whom have contributed or promised from fifty cents 
to $75,000.00. They are the Founders of the University; 
they belong to the gieat Founders' Club which is carrying 
the movement forward so splendidly. 


An idea of the quality of construction and design of the 
institution may be gained from the accompanying illustra- 
tions. (See Frontispiece.) 

Oglethorpe University 21 

It will be seen that the architects and landscape artist 
spared no pains to make it one of the really beautiful uni- 
versities of America. The architecture is Collegiate Gothic; 
the building material is a beautiful blue granite trimmed 
vv^ith limestone. All the buildings will be covered with 
heavy variegated slates. The construction is of steel, con- 
crete, brick and hollow tile. The first building is the one 
on the right of the entrance seen in the foreground of the 
bird's-eye view. The new building, given by Mr. and Mrs. 
Lupton, our beloved benefactors, is the one with the tower 
just opposite on the left of the entrance. The total cost of 
construction of the buildings shown in the above design 
with the landscape work required, will be approximately 
$2,000,000. The building plan will be followed out in its 


But it is not so much the magnificient exterior of the in- 
stitution 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 lorm a 
faculty and adopt a curriculum that will be of the highest 
possible quality, their thought being excellence in every de- 
partment. They will take the superb traditions of the old 
Oglethorpe and add the best of this present age to them. 
Doubtless Oglethorpe will be a big university some day, but 
she is already a great one, and it is greatness rather than 
bigness which her founders crave most for her. 


In' the Founder's Room at Oglethorpe there will be a Book 
containing the name of every man, woman and child who 
aided in the founding of the University* arranged alphabeti- 
cally, by states. That Book will be accessible to every stu- 
dent and visitor who may want to know who it was from 

22 Oglethorpe University 

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 add- 
ing many to this role of honor, whose names will thus be 
preserved in the life and archives of Oglethoope University 


The contributions made by the Founders of the University 
residing out of the city of Atlanta are being segregated and 
separately recorded. The Board of Directors has in mind 
the establishment of one or more memorial professorships 
or buildings by each Southern State. Thus the local pat- 
riotic sentiment and loyalty will be worked into the life of 
Oglethorpe and each of her students will feel that a part of 
his own commonwealth is set down on her campus. 


In the tower of the new building given by Mr. and Mrs. 
J. T. Lupton, is installed a clock and chimes, the gift of 
Mrs. H. Frederick Lesh, of Newton Center, Mass. There 
are two dials to the clock, and they are illuminated at 
night. It is interesting to note that this is the only, tower 
clock in Atlanta and the only chimes on any college campus 
in Georgia. On the largest of the bells, which weighs a 
ton, is the following inscription: 

We were given by 
Grace Josephine Lesh 
That the hours at Oglethorpe 
Might be filled with 
Music and Harmony. 

Oglethorpe University 23 


The Board of Directors of Oglethorpe University, reahzing 
the responsibility upon them of selecting a faculty whose 
spiritual and intellectual equipment should be capable of 
satisfying the tremendous demand of a really great institu- 
tion of learning, has spared no effort or pains in securing a 
body of men who would not only possess that first requisite 
of a teacher, a great soul, but should also have those two 
other requisites of almost equal importance: power of im- 
parting their ideals and knowledge, and intellectual acquire- 
ments adequate for their department. The most important 
element in education is the creating in the student of an in- 
tense 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 
University now has a corps of teachers unsurpassed in any 
institution of its size and age. The names are given in the 
order of their election.

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 specialists in professional 
and business life and teachers in our High Schools and 
Colleges, and to supply the growing demand for specially 
equipped men in every department of human activity. 

Students who are looking forward to university work are 
invited to correspond with the President, in order that they 
may be putting themselves in line for the advanced courses 
which are to be offered. 

Adequate Library and Laboratory facilities are being 
provided as the need for them arises. Free use will be 
made of the city of Atlanta, in itself a remarkable laboratory 
of industrial and scientific life, whose museums, libraries 
and municipal plants are at the disposal of our students for 
observation, inspection and investigation. 

The first unit of the building plan is the equivalent in 
capacity of four buildings, each 50 by 60 feet, three stories 
high. Of these, two are dormitories, one, lecture halls, 
laboratories and offices, and the fourth, dining hall and re- 
fectory. There is also a central heating plant in addition. 
A new building has been recently erected, to be used as a 
dormitory. The library has been transferred to this build- 
ing; and indoor athletics are carried on here. The generosity 
of Mr. and Mrs. J. T. Lupton has made possible, also, the 
immediate erection of another building, which will contain 
the Library, President's Ofifice, Assembly Hall, Lecture 
Rooms, Central Clock and Chimes, and Founders' Room and

In the Schools of Liberal Arts, Science, Business 
Administration, Literature and Journalism 

The requirements for entrance to the Academic Schools 
of Oglethorpe University is fifteen units from a school of 
good standing. Students offering t»felve units may be ad- ' O 
mitted on condition. In either case the candidate must pre- 
sent three units in English and two in Mathematics. In the 
School of Liberal Arts, three units of Latin must, also, be 
offered; in the School of Science two years of language work 
are required, one of which must be Latin (this may be 
made up after entrance); in the School of Literature and 
Journalism one year of Latin is required, which may be 
made up after entrance. For removal of conditions see 
page 35. 

A unit represents a year's study in any subject in a sec- 
ondary school, constituting approximately a quarter of a 
full year's work. 

The authorities of Oglethorpe University are fully ac- 
quainted with the educational situation in the South and in 
making their entrance requirements somewhat above rather 
than below the standard, they have not lost sight of the 
frequent insufficiencies of preparation of prospective students 
brought about by inadequate High School facilities. It 
is the purpose of the University to make its degrees repre- 
sent high attainment, but to furnish such facilities for 
students that this attainment will be fairly simple and easy. 
It is not our purpose by the adoption of specially high en- 
trance requirements to drive away any students from our 
Institution. Adequate arrangements will be made for aiding 
any student who may be behind in his preparation in so far 
as such aid is consistent with the best ideals of college work.

The President of the University will gladly answer any 
inquiries as to further details of entrance requirements, upon 

Oglethorpe University 35 

request. An application blank will be found at the close of 
the catalogue. It is well for the prospective student to apply 
as early as possible. A blank for High School Certificate 
may be obtained by writing to the Registrar. 

Students who wish credit for college work done elsewhere 
must file with the Registrar a certificate from the institution 
in which the work was done. The institution must be one 
that is recognized by the Faculty of Oglethorpe University, 
and the work must be satisfactory to the professor of that 


1. Entrance Conditions — Students admitted to par- 
tial standing in the Freshman Class may remove their en- 
trance conditions by passing entrance examinations in the 
additional subjects necessary, provided such examinations 
are passed within two years after admission to the University. 

2. Entrance conditions must be removed before the open- 
ing of the third college year. No student will be permitted 
to register for any subject of his third year until his en- 
trance conditions are removed. 

3. Students entering from other colleges will not be ad- 
mitted to advanced standing in any class until all entrance 
conditions have been removed. 

4. College Conditions — A student whose term grade 
in any subject lies between 70 and 60 per cent shall have 
two re-examinations and no more. These examinations for 
Fall and Winter Term conditions, will be set at the end of 
the succeeding term, and at the beginning of the next session. 

Examinations for removal of Spring Term conditions will 
be set at the beginning and end of the Fall Term of the next 

36 Oglethorpe University 

5. A student whose term grade in any subject lies be- 
tween 60 and 40 per cent shall have one re-examination and 
no more at the beginning of the next session. 

6. A student failing in both re-examinations in the first 
case or in the one re-examination in the second case will 
take the subject over in class. 

7. A student whose term grade in any subject lies below 
40 per cent will not be entitled to re-examination, but will 
be required to take the subject over in class. 

8. The summer term may be devoted to work prepara- 
tory to condition examinations, as deficient students will not 
be permitted to carry extra work during the nine months' 

9. Conditioned students absent from the regular condition 
examination must present an excuse satisfactory to the pro- 
fessor in charge of the subject or receive a zero for the ex- 
amination. When an excuse has been accepted a special ex- 
amination will be held for which a fee of two dollars shall 
be charged, which shall go to the library of that department. 

10. Any student having eight term conditions at the be- 
ginning of the session will be required to take the class 
over in all subjects. 

11. No student with more than three term conditions 
may be permitted to register as a member of the next high- 
er class, but shall be considered a member of the same class 
as the year before, until the number of his unremoved con- 
ditions shall not exceed three. 

12. Conditions, whether due to failure, to incomplete 
work, or to absence, must be made up within a year or the 
subject repeated in class. 

Oglethorpe University 37 


In the session of 1922-23 Oglethorpe University will offer 
courses in the four undergraduate Classes of four schools 
leading to the customary Academic degrees. The degree 
of Bachelor of Arts (B. A.) in the Classics will be con- 
ferred upon those students satisfactorily completing a four 
years' course as outlined below, based largely on the study of 
the "Humanities". The degree of Bachelor of Arts in Science 
will be conferred upon those students who satisfactorily com- 
plete a four years' course largely in scientific studies. The 
degree of Bachelor of Arts in Literature will be given to 
those students who complete a course including special work 
in languages, literature and journalism. The degree of 
Bachelor of Arts in Commerce will be conferred upon 
those students who satisfactorily complete a full four years' 
course in studies relating particularly to business adminis- 
tration and industrial life. 

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

In general, it may be suggested that those students pre- 
paring to enter such professions as the Ministry or Law, 
will choose the B. A. course in Classics; those looking for- 
ward to Medicine, Dentistry and other Scientific work, the 
B. A. course in Science; those expecting to enter the literary 
and journalistic field, the B. A. course in Literature, and 
those who intend to spend their lives in the business world, 
the B. A. course in Commerce. 

While each of these courses is so shaped as to influence 
the student towards a certain end, colored largely by the 
type of studies it includes, yet each course will be found to 
include such subjects of general culture as are necessary to 
the education of a life as distinguished from a living.

It is the purpose of Oglethorpe University to develop a 
thoroughly excellent Graduate School, offering courses in 
all departments leading to the Doctor's degree in Science 
and Philosophy. In supplying this need, which has for a 
long while been acutely felt in the South, the management 
of the University will be content with only the very highest 
grade ol woik and facilities. 

Courses leading to the Master's and Doctor's degrees in 
certain departments will be found outlined elsewhere in this 
catalogue under the appropriate department heading. 
These degrees are based on that of Bachelor of Arts of 
Oglethorpe University or of some other approved institution. 
In general, it may be said that the degree of Master of Arts 
will be given for one year of additional study in graduate 
subjects more or less related to each other. The degree of 
Doctor of Philosophy requires at least three years of grad- 
uate work. But neither degree is 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 satis- 
fy the Professors concerned and the whole Faculty. It is 
required that the candidate for Ph. D. demonstrate by ex- 
amination not later than the end of his first year, his ability 
to read German and French, and the student must have com- 
pleted the under-graduate work in the subject to which he 
wishes to give his chief attention. A thesis must be sub- 
mitted, showing original work. 

In this connection, the prospective student will be inter- ' 
ested in learning that all Professors chosen as the heads of 
departments in Oglethorpe University must have obtained 
the highest academic degree offered in that department. 
This fact is mentioned in order to indicate the earnest de- 
termination of the Board of Directors of the University that 
her Faculty shall include only men of the highest intellect- 

46 Oglethorpe University 

ual attainment as well as men of great teaching povv^er and 
strong personal character. 

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


The steady drift of the wisest opinion of the educational 
world looks toward the union of academic with professional 
education. The broadening effect of association of profes- 
sional students with other classmen on the university cam- 
pus, as well as the valuable opportunity for contact with 
academic work, renders this connection highly desirable. 
It is the purpose of the University to enter the field of pro- 
fessional education as quickly as funds are secured to en- 
able us to do so adequately. Schools of Engineering, Ar- 
chitecture, Dentistry, Law and Medicine will be established 
as opportunity offers, but no work will be undertaken that 
cannot be executed with the same quality of matter and 
form that is offered in the best institutions of our country. 


Students who are looking forward to Medicine, Law or 
Engineering and who do not desire to study for an academ- 
ic degree are allowed to take such courses as will lead to 
their professional work. Such students must present at 
least twelve units for entrance; of these four and one-half 
are required: English (3) and Mathematics (1%). The fol- 
lowing courses are suggested: 

Pre-Medical: First Year— Physics 1, Chemistry 1 , 

German 1, English 1 (elective), Bible 1 (elective), 

Second Year — Chemistry 2, Biology 1, German 2 , 

French 1 , English 2 elective , Bible 2 (elective). 

Pre-Legal: First Year— English 1, Bible 1, History 1 , 

Oglethorpe University 47 

Latin 1 , Mathematics 1 . 

Second Year — English 2 , History 2 , Modern Lan- 
guage 1 , Bible 2 , and one elective. 

Pre-Engineering: First Year — Mathematics 1 , Physics 
1 , Chemistry 1 , English 1 'elective), Bible 1 (elec- 

Second Year — Pvlathematrcs 2 , Physics 2 , Modern 
Language 1 , Bible 2 (elective). 


The attention of the prospective student should, however, 
be clearly called to the fact that each year finds it more 
necessary for the professional man to have a thorough 
foundation for his professional studies, and the professional 
schools are becoming more strict in their requirements for 
entrance. Particularly is this the case in Medicine, where 
the best medical colleges require a diploma from a standard 
college for entrance. We would strongly advise our students 
to study the suggestions made on page 37 and have their col- 
lege diploma safely in hand before they begin their profes- 
sional studies. 


The policy of the Board of directors of the University 
has been and will be to "hasten slowly" in the work of or- 
ganization of the Institution. They, therefore, began the 
first year's work with one class, the Freshman. They are 
now ready to offer the full work of the under-graduate 

The courses offered for the year 1922-23 are as follows: 

Once a week the President has lectured to a class of ad- 

48 Oglethorpe University 

vanced students on "Cosmic History" and the purpose has 
been an interpretation of the body of modern discovery and 
thought from a theistic view point. The following subjects 
are included in the course: Geology, Chemistry, Biology, 
Embryology, Paleontology, Archaeology, Geography, His- 
tory, Astronomy, The Sciences— Who are They? All the 
students are required to attend and take notes, and are ex- 
amined at the close of the course. 


The course in English Bible extends over two years; it is 
required for the B. A. degree in all four Departments, and 
must be pursued by every under-graduate student. 

The first year is devoted to the Old Testament, the second 
to the New Testament, together with the intervening pe- 
riod. The study will include the mastery of the history 
contained in the Bible, an analysis of each book, and such 
other matters as are required for the proper understanding 
of the work. It will be treated not from a sectarian point 
of view, nor as mere history or literature. The aim will be 
to impart such a knowledge of the subject as every intelli- 
gent man should possess, enabling him to read his Bible 
with pleasure and profit. 

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

Text-Books Bible 1. English Bible, Moorehead's Out- 
line Studies in the Books of the Old Testament. 
Bible 2. Vollmer's L//e o/ C/^m^, Kerr's Introduction to 
New Testament Study. 

This course will be followed in the Junior and Senior year 
by Psychology, Ethics, History of Philosophy, and Eviden- 
ces of Christianity.

Professor Routh. Mr. Cahoon. 

The work in English in the first two years is designed to 
give students a mastery of their own tongue for speaking 
and writing, and to familarize them with the best English 
literature. The elective courses, given mainly for Juniors 
and Seniors, provide intensive study in special fields. The 
summer courses, though not identical with the winter 
courses, are planned along similar lines, and give correspond- 
ing credits. This will enable a student to complete a portion 
of his requirements for a degree in the summer. 

For graduate students work is offered leading to the de- 
gree of M. A. More advanced work in the graduate school 
has been planned, but is not offered at present. 

English 1. Composition. Practice in speaking and 
writing, with collateral study of masterpieces of modem 
prose: The chief object of the course is to teach the stu- 
dent to arrange his thoughts clearly and present them with 
force. He is also encouraged to enlarge his vocabulary and 
his stock of ideas by the reading of good essays. All Fresh- 
men 3 hours. 

50 Oglethorpe University 

Text-Books: MacCracken and Sandison, Manual of 
Good English, Carpenter and Brewster, Modern English 

English 2. English Literature. A study of the best Eng- 
Hsh poetry and prose, with special attention to style and to 
philosophic content and to the historical development of lit- 
erature. The course is designed to complete the student's 
general study of literature and at the same time introduce 
him to the specialized Junior and Senior courses. All Soph- 
omores. 3 hours.

and has written a number of plays for their production. 
This writing of plays is not, however, required. 

Graduate Course in English 

Courses may be offered in Anglo-Saxon, Chaucer, Shake- i 
speare, and Advanced Theory of Composition, this last in- 
cluding the theory and history of criticism. These courses 
will be arranged to suit the needs of the students, but will 
be so given as to enable the student who has a college de- 
gree to obtain the M. A. degree in two years, or by intensive 
study in a shorter time. Supplementary courses in other 
departments will be also required of the candidate for the 
degree. Some eighteen thousand volumes and pamphlets 
of English Scholarship recently added to our library will 
shortly be available for use.

Professor Nicolassen. 

Three years of Greek will be offered in the undergraduate 
classes, together with a preparatory class for those who are 
unprepared for Greek I. 

Preparatory Greek. This class is designed not merely 
for those who have no knowledge of the language, but also 
for those whose preparation is inadequate. The most im- 
portant subjects, both in inflection and syntax, are present- 
ed early in the course, and then, by a system of weekly re- 
views, are kept constantly fresh. 

Text-Books: Benner and Smyth's Beginner's Greek 
Book, Xenophon's Anabasis (Goodwin and White . Three 
times a week throughout the year. 

Greek 1. The preparation for entrance into this class is 
not so much a matter of time as of thoroughness. The 
student is expected to know the ordinary Attic inflections 
and syntax, to have read about one book of the Anabasis, 
and to have had considerable practice in translating English 
into Greek. The use of accents is required. 

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

Written translations of English into Greek are required 
once a week. On the other days a short oral exercise of 
this kind forms a part of the lesson; so that in each recita- 
tion some practice is had in translating English into Greek. 

Text-Books: Xenophon's Anabasis (Godwin and White), 
Memorabilia, Adam's Lysias, Goodwin's Greek Grammar, 
Pearson's Greek Prose Composition, Myers's Eastern Na. 
tions and Greece, Liddell and Scott's Greek Lexicon, (un- 
abridged). Three times a week throughout the year. 

52 Oglethorpe University 

Greek 2. In the first term Demosthenes will be read; in 
the second, Herodotus; in the third, Eomer. The subject 
of Phonetics is presented and illustrated by chart and mod- 
el of the larynx showing the position of the vocal organs. 

Text-Books. Demosthenes On the Crown (Humphreys), 
Herodotus (Smith and Laird), Homer's Iliad (Seymour), 
Demosthenes and Herodotus (Ancient Classics for English 
Readers), Church's Stories from Homer, Fowler's Greek 
Literature. Three times a week throughout the year. 

Greek. 3 The time of this class will be divided between 
prose and poetry. After the study of Thucydides and Plato, 
the reading of Sophocles will be taken up. The life of the 
ancient Greeks will also be considered. 

Text-Books. Thucydides (Morris), Plato (Forman), Soph- 
ocles' Oedipus Tyrannus (Earle), Thucydides and Plato 
(Ancient Classics for English Readers), Church's Stories 
from the Greek Tragedians, Gulick's Life of the Ancient

be able to translate English into Latin with some facilily. 
Livy, Cicero de Senectute and Sallust's Catiline will be studied 
in this year. A brief history of Rome will also be included. 
Prose composition, both oral and written, will be carried on 
throughout the year. 

Text-Books. Livy XXI, XXII (Greenough and Peck), 
Cicero de Senectute, Sallust's Catiline. Allen and Green- 
ough's Latin Grammar, Myers's History of Rome, Harpers'

Oglethorpe University 53 

year. Students who enter with only three years of High 
School Latin and who wish to take the classical A. B., must 
take two years of Latin or Greek. 

Latin 2. The studies of this class will be in Cicero's 
Letters, Horace and Plautus. A course in Latin Literature 
will also be given; Mackail's Latin Literature. Three 
times a week throughout the year. Elective. 

Latin 3. This class will begin with Terence, and then 
take up Tacitus and Juvenal. Ancient Roman life will be 
considered in this part of the course; Johnson's Private 
Life of the Romans. Three times a week throughout the 
year. Elective. 

Teacher's Course. A course of instruction will be given 
for teachers in and near Atlanta. The aim will be to sug- 
gest methods for beginners and for classes in Caesar, Cicero 
and Vergil. Certain department of the grammar will be 
discussed, e. g., the Subjunctive Mood, the Conditions, 
Indirect Discourse; scanning will be illustrated, and atten- 
tion given to topics which have caused difficulty to teach- 
ers. Suggestions will be made as to the best means of help- 
ing pupils to acquire a good vocabulary in Latin. The 
mode of procedure and the subjects treated will depend 
somewhat on the personnel of the class. 

The work will be undertaken if as many as ten persons 
offer themselves. This class will probably meet on Satur- 

Graduate Course for Special Students. Persons who 
are teaching or otherwise occupied during the week and 
who would like to do some graduate work in Latin or Greek 
by coming on Saturdays, should communicate with the 

Graduate Course in Latin and Greek 

Those who are thinking of taking the graduate courses 
are advised to write to the President or to the Professor,

Undergraduate Course Leading to the Degree of Bach- 
elor of Arts (B. A.) in Commerce 

Graduate Courses leading to Advanced Degrees. 

The School of Business Administration, Commerce and 
Finance is an undergraduate-graduate school, one of the 
professional divisions of the University. Instruction is 
therefore directed toward professional education rather than 
narrow technical drill. Entrance requirements for the un- 
dergraduate work are the same as for the School of Liberal 
Arts, except that Ancient Language is not required. Mod- 
em Language, especially Spanish or French, is strongly ad- 
vised. Shorthand and typewriting are neither required nor 
later counted toward a degree, but are strongly recommend- 

The graduate work is based upon the Bachelor's Degree 
from an accredited institution. 

Economics — Its laws and principles with special reference 
to American conditions. The course presents a general 
survey and is designed to serve as an introduction to later 
and more intensive study of the problems of industrial 

Economic and Commercial Geography— A study of re- 
sources and industries as influenced by geographic condi- 
tions. The geography of the more important commercial 
products of the farm, range, forest, mine, factory, and sea; 
continental and oceanic trade routes; great commercial na- 

American Government and Politics — Analysis of the 
structure and workings of the government in the United 
States, local, state, and national; the organization and activi- 
ties of state and federal administration, with the fundamen- 

Oglethorpe University 63 

tal legal and political principles governing it. This course 
alternates with Comparative Government. 

Accounting Principles — An elementary course based on 
the use made of financial statements in business organization 
and control. The student is familiarized, through practice 
and discussion, with the entire accounting process, begin- 
ning with the voucher and ending with the report. The 
last part of the course is devoted to the consideration of the 
typical financial statements and their analysis from the 
standpoint of the various interests involved. The method 
of instruction is a combination of lectures and discussions, 
supplemented by laboratory practice. 

Business Communication — A study of the communicating 
function in business and of the technique which is common 
to all forms of business communication; discussed in its 
psychological, rhetorical, graphic, and typographical aspects. 
The practice work is organized around Material, Attention, 
Interest, Understanding, Belief, Action and Good Will. It 
includes the assembling of the date from letters, editorials, 
and business articles. 

This course has a twofold purpose: (1) to give the infor- 
mation about the communicating activities of business and 
the skill in the presentation of business material which all 
business workers need, and (2) to provide the foundation 
necessary for an advanced study of correspondence and 
advertising problems. 

Business Psychology — Business problems from the psy- 
chological point of view. (1) Psychological facts and prin- 
ciples applicable to the conduct of business operations: (2) 
possibilities and limitations of psychological method and 
approach to business problems. Among the topics discussed 
are the hiring and instructing of employees, vocational 
adjustment, group efficiency, advertising and selling. 

64 Oglethorpe University 

Financial Organization of Society — A study of the 
nature and work of the various types of financial institu- 
tions in the modern business world, the forces that have led 
to their development, and their relation to the organization 
of industrial society. The principal forms of financial 
institutions covered are: coinage and monetary systems; 
credit; commercial banks; savings banks; bondhouses; trust 
companies; stock exchanges; the various forms of co-opera- 
tive associations; also a brief study of the functions of the 
corporation and the insurance company as financial institu- 
tions. Each of these institutions plays its own part in the 
industrial system, and together, in their many interrelations, 
they make up the financial structure of society. 

Labor Conditions and Problems — A general survey — 
analytical, causal and historical, of the main forces and 
factors which give rise to modern labor conditions and pro- 
blems and which, therefore, must be taken into consideration 
in the attempted solution of specific labor problems, together 
with a brief discussion of social programs, organized labor, 
and labor legislation. This course is designed to serve as 
the foundation for the special courses in this field as well 
as to meet the needs of those who wish only a general study 
of labor problems. Its main divisions are the genesis, evo- 
lution, and character of present-day labor problems; the 
material progress and present condition of the wage-earning 
class, wages, hours of work, unemployment, property hold- 
ings, and distribution of income, among other things, being 
considered; points of view and social programs; the philoso- 
phy, policies, and methods of organized labor, arbitration 
and social insurance. 

Risk and Risk Bearing in Modern Industrial Society 
— A detailed study of the speculative character of modern 
industry, with analysis of the various sources and kinds of 
risks and the various ways of meeting risk. Special study 
of insurance: 1, life; the kinds of companies, their organiza- 

Oglethorpe University 65 

tion and operation; the kinds of policies and the calculation 
of premiums; insurance investments and dividends. 2, Prop- 
erty insurance, companies and their methods of operation; 
the determination of rates; policy conditions; the work of in- 
spection bureaus; underwriters' laboratories: 3, The prob- 
lems of buying and selling insurance; regulation of insurance 
by the state; state insurance. 

Marketing 1 — Raw Materials — A survey of the method 
and problems connected with the marketing of raw ma- 
terials. A study is made of farm products, mineral prod- 
ucts, forest products, and sea products, and the physical and 
geographical environment of the productive regions to dis- 
cover their commercial problems. The course falls into 
three general divisions: (1) the commodity, (2) the markets, 
(3) the trade organization. Special study is made of the 
problems of the middlemen, transpoi-tation, warehousing, 
organized exchanges and produce markets, market news, 
financing the market and market price. These problems 
are analyzed in classroom discussion as they appear in the 
marketing of four or five great staple commodities. Theory 
and practice are balanced by visits to warehouses, cold stor- 
ages, produce markets, and other specialized markets. 

Each student is required to select a commodity and trace 
it through its entire marketing process. The information 
for these papers is secured through government bulletins, 
market reports, technical and scientific literature, and by 
interviews and observation. Special emphasis is placed 
upon first-hand information. 

Marketing 2 — Manufactured Goods — In the problems 
and methods of marketing manufactured products, the 
same general divisions are made: 1 the commodity, 2 the 
market 3 the trade organization. The classroom discus- 
sion will consider the general problems confronting a mer- 
chant with goods to sell; organization of a business; duties 
and responsibilities of the sales manager, the advertising 

66 Oglethorpe University 

manager, and the advertising agency; application of scientific 
principles to commercial analysis; location; analysis of a 
commody; purchasing problem, stock plans; analysis of 
market; analysis of trade organization, department store, 
chain-store, mail-order house, co-operative store; price policy, 
price maintenance, credit; opportunities for extending the 
market; selection and organization of the sales force; selec- 
tion of advertising mediums; financing a sales and advertis- 
ing organization; co-ordinating the selling forces. The aim 
is to define and outline the general principles of commercial 
analysis, which includes the work of both salesmen and ad- 
vertising men. The literature that is available on these 
problems is assigned for reading. 

As in Course 1 above, the student is required to make 
first-hand investigation and written reports of the problems, 
in local establishments. 

Marketing III: — Foreign Trade — The marketing pro- 
blems arising are: theories of foreign trade; character and 
volume of trade available for foreign commerce; contact 
with the foreign market, commission house, forwarding 
agent, manufacturers' agent, indent merchant, traveling 
salesmen, export departments; foreign correspondence; ad- 
vertising in the foreign market; combining for foreign trade; 
prices in foreign trade, foreign exchange, credit, price quo- 
tations; transportation; marine insurance; tariffs; merchant 
marine; individual foreign markets. The point of view is 
that of an inland city like Atlanta. The problems are con- 
ditioned by this fact. 

Marketing IV: — Problems of Marketing and Mer- 
chandising. — A wide range of problems of manufacture 
and distribution. 

As in courses I and II, each student w'll select a single 
commodity for detail study. The investigation will be 
developed into a term paper dealing with the selected pro- 
duct in the various foreign markets, with the effects of the 

Oglethorpe University 67 

European war, and with the future possibilities. An at- 
tempt will be made to clear away the obscurities surround- 
ing the subject of foreign trade by following a commodity 
through to its destination, with samples of all the necessary

lying principles and their application in different fields. Its 
topics will include the kinds of useful work; the general 
presumption in favor of private enterpriser; its shortcomings 
as an organizing force, and the weakening of individual's 
positions in a free-exchange economy resulting from (1) 
massing of technical capital, (2) growth of specialized know- 
ledge before which common intelligence is at a disadvantage, 
(3) conflicts of interests which the law of property and con- 
tract cannot fully harmonize, and (4) other causes. Chief 
emphasis will be laid on the problems common to trusts, rail- 
roads, and public utilities, arising from fixed capital, untraced 
expenses, increasing returns, and the resulting tendenciec to

South America. 

Industrial Administration — I Designed primarily for 
those students expecting to enter the manufacturing field. 
It presupposes the courses Industrial Society, Business Ad- 
minstration. Statistic, Accounting, and some ability to un- 
dertake independent investigation. The course deals with 
the nature and characteristics of the complex problems of 
the industrial executive, and systematic methods of such 
problems, aiming thus to provide the student with a sense 
of relative values and some method for later intensive re- 
search on his own initiative. The work is made practical 
by independent investigation in factories of various types. 

Industrial Administration — II A continuation of Indus- 
trial Administration I with similar objectives. The more im- 
portant "philosophies of administration" which help to 
solve the manufacturer's problems; a rapid survey of the 
history of industrial engineering; theories, principles, methods 
of approach, devices, and their application to various types 
of industry. This work is made practical through personal 
interviews with men who have developed the more impor- 
tant philosophies of administration. 

Commercial Law (A three-term course). — Ordinarily in 
non-commercial affairs the risks incident to ignorance of 
the law are not particularly formidable. A working know- 
ledge of the rules of the Commercial Law is of practical 
value to every citizen, but to the successful business man of 
today it is indispensable. 

Successful completion of this course will make available 
to the student all substantive law courses offered in any law 
school. Among the subjects are: Contracts, negotiable in- 
strument, agency, partnership, corporations, sales, bailments, 
carriers, guaranty and suretyship, insurance, wills, etc. 

The case system of instruction is employed. 

Oglethorpe University 71

practical application and methods of the most complete and 
consistent recent tendencies. The principles of scientific 
management and their wide applicability to various manu- 
facturing activites. Each student is expected to make first- 
hand investigation in one or more factories in Atlanta and 
vicinity, exemplifying as far as possible the type of produc- 
tion in which he is most interested, studying the problems 
of store-handling, routing, tool-room maintenance, cost 
keeping, worked material and tool standardization and clas- 
sification, in making route charts, and in devising produc- 
tion systems.

sources of their power and the elements of their weakness, 
the character and extent of any possible social advantages 
to be derived from them as well as the disadvantages and 
evils which have followed their growth, the attempts at state 
and federal regulation in the past, and the question of the 
desirable policy and feasible methods of control for the fu- 
ture. The subject is treated as a single problem of modern 
industrial society, with emphasis on methods of investiga- 
tion, analysis, and reasoning essential for the study of simi- 
lar problems.

Perhaps the most remarkable single development in the 
modern educational world is the possession by our colleges 
and universities of complete control of the greatest of all 
sports. American college football is the most interesting, 
most exciting, most manly, most instructive and most prof- 
itable game ever played by men. It, more than any other, 
furnishes to its devotees something of the moral equivalent 
of war, and such a hold has it taken on the public that they 
pour out their tens of thousands of dollars to witness inter- 
collegiate games in vast stadia and bowls erected largely for 
the purpose at a cost reaching into the millions. It is a 
momentous thing for the academic world to have control of 
the American equivalent of the Olympic games and the con- 
tests of the Arena, and as we watch the never ceasing en- 
largment of interest, finance, equipment and importance of 
this part of college work it must be perfectly apparent that 
:the very life of a college depends and will more and more 
depend upon its method of handling this fact which is at 
once a challenge and an opportunity. 

And, hand in hand with football, go baseball, basket-ball, 
boating, track, and indeed the whole physical well-being of 
the vast American student-body. 

Oglethorpe University 77 

Passing by as somnolent those colleges that sidestep the 
fact by denying their students the priviledge of intercollegiate 
sports and those that permissively decree a Students' Athletic 
Association which asumes control of coach, games, and often 
of "Faculty Directors of Athletics", we come to those insti- 
tutions that face the situation with wide open eyes. 

The attitude of Oglethorpe University to all athletics is 
based upon the recognition of the physical training of the 
human body as a college study. 

It is presumed that a matter of such overwhelming im- 
portance to college life as athletics and of such transcendent 
interest to the public that it commands their time and purses 
at will, is a matter worth studying seriously and deserving 
to be ranked with Greek or Poultry Keeping. 

Therefore Oglethorpe University has founded her School 
of Physical culture. 

Its purpose is two-fold: to train, protect and develop the 
bodies of all the students of the University and to offer a 
special school where those who deserve it may receive spe- 
cial training, equipping them for positions as Physical Direc- 
tors in Y. M. C. A's, in the Army, and in other schools, col- 
leges and universities. 

As a school for the special preparation of students for 
positions as physical directors and coaches in Y. M. C. A's, 
the Army and other schools and universities, a regular cur- 
riculum has been arranged offering instruction in the follow- 
ing subjects, the completion of which will lead to an appro, 
priate certificate or degree: 

1. Physiology: — A first-year course in the study of the 
human body, one hour per week — Fall, Winter, Spring and 
Summer Terms. Required of all Freshmen. Prerequisite 
for all courses enumerated below. Includes studies in San- 
itation, Hygiene and First Aid.

granted to members of this class upon the payment of a 
nominal fee of $23.00 each annually, covering greens fee, 
locker rent and special instruction fee. Fall, Winter, Spring 
and Summer Terms.

An appropriate letter will be given all students making 
the University team in any of the above classes, 3-10 

Any student successfully completing all courses, 1-13 in. 
elusive, will be accorded a certificate or diploma in proportion 
to the quantity and quality of his work. 

Every human being should be taught to play with his 
fellow-beings. Every student should have daily exercise. 
These two simple but fundamental axioms are the basis 
for all work in this department. 

The munificent gift of fifty thousand dollars by Mr. and 
Mrs. Harry P. Hermance to Oglethorpe University for an 
athletic field has made possible the immediate inauguration 
of this plan, which is founded upon the study from a college 
standpoint of psychology, hygiene, sanitation, first aid work, 
etc. It further emphasizes the necessity of careful medical 

80 Oglethorpe University 

supervision of all athletics and the adaption to each indiv- 
idual studen,t of special forms of exercise. 

One of its most important features is the requiring of 
every student to take some form of physical exercise daily 
under proper medical or tutorial guidance. In this way those 
who need it most would be most advantaged, and the chief 
failure of the athletic program of our average American col- 
lege would be obviated, for it is a notorious fact that most 
of our institutions develop a small number of trained ath- 
letes in football, baseball, basket ball, etc., while the great 
mass of students do little more than sit on the bleachers 
and yell. 

And the building of the new athletic field given by Mr. 
and Mrs. Hermance makes possible the inauguration at 
Oglethorpe of a complete system of physical culture for all 
students. It will include not only the great athletic features 
such as football, baseball, basket ball, etc., but also many 
interesting track exercises, discus and javelin throwing, jump- 
ing, vaulting and, in fact, all of the various numbers to be 
found at our intercollegiate track meets. It is the purpose 
of Oglethorpe University as quickly as circumstances may 
permit, to enter a team in every number on the program of 
such meets, and, in addition, to develop a strong boating 
crew on Silver Lake. 

The University has been especially fortunate in enjoying 
the services of Mr. Frank B. Anderson, one of the best 
known coaches in the South, who has had charge of Ath- 
letics at Oglethorpe University and who has been advanced to 
the directorship of the department of physical culture. Mr, 
Anderson has merited and won not only a great reputation 
as a coach, but as a clean, fine friend of young men, and 
there is no man in the whole of America more loved by his 

We are especially fortunate also in being able to announce 
that Mr. Russell Stein famous W. and J. all-American 

Oglethorpe University 81 

foot-ball star, known as the best man on the best team in 
America in 1921, will coach our football team and teach 
Course No. 4. The University, of course, is proud of his rec- 
ord and happy in the knowledge that our boys will have as 
their coach a man who is an expert in that department with 
hardly an equal in this country, and those of us who have 
charge of the moral and mental life of the University, feel 
especially happy in having at the head of this fascinating 
department of our work, a splendid outstanding man whose 
personal influence with the students will mean so much in 
the building of character and the enforcing of every moral 
and religious precept. It is not going too far to say that the 
teams at Oglethorpe will be as well coached next year and 
thereafter as any teams on the American continent, for 
there are no two finer men at the head of athletics whether 
it be as coaches or as men, than the two who head this 
department at Oglethorpe. 

To these should be added Mr. Howard H. Beckett, profes. 
sional golf player and instructor of the Capital City Club, 
who will have charge of course No. 7. Mr. Beckett has a 
national reputation as teacher and golfer and his addition 
to the faculty of the University is a matter of just pride 
and congratulation. 

Other instructors will be added as this work may require.

The university year is divided into four terms of approxi- 
mately tw^elve vi^eeks each. The Fall, Winter and Spring 
terms v^ill continue in operation as heretofore. The Sum- 
mer term will offer intensive courses in standard college 
subjects and is designed: 

1. To enable students to shorten their college courses 
from four to three years; 

2. To enable any deficient students to make up their de- 

3. To furnish teachers, men and women, with a means 
of utilizing their summers in intensive study of selected sub- 
jects, thus obtaining college credits leading to academic de- 

All these classes will have the opportunity of securing 
college credits leading to academic degrees. 

Teachers with the Baccalaureate degree, by attending 
three Summer terms, may obtain the Master's degree. 

The Summer term will begin June 7th, 1922, and close 
the following August 18th. The Fall term will extend from 
September 20th, to December 22nd, the Winter term from 
January 2nd, 1923, to March 18th, and the Spring term 
from March 21st to June 3rd, 1923. 

Those who wish to take any of these courses should be 
on the ground and ready to begin work the very first day. 

The Summer Term at Oglethorpe University offers courses 
of equal value with those given in the nine months' session. 
The work, however, will be intensive in character, so that 
a student can pursue not more than two subjects. By meet- 
ing six days in the week for 1^/2 hours each day it is expect- 
ed that the classes can cover as much ground, in these two 
subjects, as in the longer session.

Professor Nicolassen. 

The following courses will be offered: 

1. Beginner's Class — No knowledge of the language 
will be required for entrance into this class; but it will be 
found useful also for those whose training has been defec- 
tive. Benner & Smyth's Beginner's Greek Book (Ameri- 
can Book Company) will be used as the text-book. The 
effort will be made to begin the reading of the Anabasis 
in a short time. There will be constant drill and review on 
the fundamentals, so as to avoid, as far as possible, the loss 
of important material as the work progresses. 

2. Anabasis Those who are thoroughly familiar with 
the forms may be organized into a class for the rapid read- 
ing of the Anabasis. Text-book, Goodwin & White's Four 
Books of Anabasis (Ginn & Co.). 

3. Homer A class will be formed for the reading of 
Homer, if a sufficient number apply for it. Seymour's 
School Iliad, Books I--VI (Ginn & Co.), will be used. 

4. New Testament. If any persons, beginners or others, 
desire to read the New Testament in Greek, they should con. 
suit the Professor in advance. Westcott & Hort's New 
Testament in Greek (Student's Edition with Lexicon.) 


Professor Nicolassen 

The summer work in Latin and Greek is intended to be 
intensive. The student is supposed to take not more than 
two subjects, to have six recitations a week, and to cover 
1% hours at each recitation. 

High School Pupils who may lack one or two units for 
entrance into college, have the opportunity to make up 

Oglethorpe University 85 

these deficiences by study during the summer. By confer- 
ring with the professor in advance, it may be possible for 
those v^ho are fully prepared, to do some of their college 
w^ork and thus shorten or lighten the work of the regular 

College Students who have conditions to remove or 
wish to shorten their college course, should consult the pro. 
fessor, that arrangements may be made to meet their needs. 

A selection will be made from the following subjects ac- 
cording to demand. 

1. Study of Methods — Suggestions will be made for 
the teaching of beginners' Latin, Caesar, Cicero and Vergil. 
Special attention will be given to the matter of gaining a 
vocabulary. Difficulties of teachers will be considered. A 
question box will be placed in the recitation room, by which 
questions may be presented to the professor; this may also 
be done freely during the meeting of the class. Composi- 
tion work and sight reading will be considered. Persons 
who can do so are advised to read Bennett and Bristol's 
The Teaching of Latin and Greek in the Secondary 
School (Longman, Green & Co., New York), and The Re- 
lation of Latin to Practical Life, by Miss Frances E. Sabin, 
(419 Sterling Place, Madison, Wis.) Much help would be 
derived from the Classical Journal, $2.50 a year. Member- 
ship in the Classical Association of the Middle West and 
South ($2.00 a year), secures the Journal without additional 
charge. Teachers are especially advised to procure and 
bring with them Game's Teaching High School Latin 
(University of Chicago Press), or A Hand-book for Latin 
Teachers, by Miss Frances E. Sabin, (University of Wiscon- 
sin, Wis.). These publications contain many useful sugges- 
tions, and will furnish the basis for some additional hints. 

2. Caesar — Those who wish to read Caesar should 
come provided with Allen & Greenough's A^(gz^ Caesar. The 
effort will be made to enable members of the class to read 

86 Oglethorpe University 

with accuracy and ease. Careful attention will be paid to 
Indirect Discourse, the Subjunctive, the gaining of a Voca- 

3. Cicero — A class for the reading of Cicero will be 
formed if a sufficient number call for it. Allen & Green- 
ough's New Edition will be used. 

4. Vergil — This class is intended both for those who 
have never read Vergil and for those who wish a review. 
Beside the reading of the text, the subject of mythology will 
be consid-ired. The reading of the Hexameter will be care- 
fully taught, with constant drill, until the chief difficulties 
are mast-ered. Allen & Greenough's Vergil. 


The summer work in French will be arranged to suit the 
needs of those who apply for it. There will be a class 
either for beginners or for those who wish more advanced 


Professor Libby Mr. Zapata 

Spanish 1, Elementary. — Practice in conversation and 
oral dictation, principal irregular Verbs in all tenses; radi- 
cal changing Verbs; idiomatic uses of ser, estar, hacer,

Board and Room Rent 

The dormitory facilities of Oglethorpe University are the 
afest and most comfortable of gognate institutions in the 
South. All the buildings of the University will be like the 
irst two that are now finished, which are believed to be ab- 
lOlutely fireproof, being constructed of steel, concrete and 
granite with partitions of brick and hollow tile. 

The Boarding Department of the Institution is conducted 
o please the student. Thoroughly first-class service will 
je given. The skimmed milk diet which produces skimmed 
nilk thinking will be studiously avoided. Price of board is 
ncluded in the room rent. 

The prices named below are based upon three grades of 
ooms. The first of these comprises the temporary dormi- 
ory; the second the entire third floor of the present main 
)uilding, which is fifty (50) feet wide and one hundred and 
iighty (180) feet long; it is divided into individual rooms, 
vith general toilet and bath room on the same floor. Each 
;ontains a lavatory furnishing hot and cold water. The 
bird grade is on the second floor of the main building and 
s composed of suites of rooms, each suite containing a 
)edroom, bath and study. The price charged includes 
irst-class board, steam heat, electric lights, water and jani- 
or's service, and all rooms are furnished adequately and 
ubstantially. Every room in the dormitory contains ample 
loset space. The rooms are large, airy, safe and comforta- 

90 Oglethorpe University 

ble and are roomy enough for the use of from one to four 
young men. 

The furniture is ot oak and is the same for all rooms, in- 
cluding chiffonier, study-table, single bed, spring and mat- 
tress for each student. 

Room linen and bed clothing will be furnished by the 
student. Applications for rooms should be filed at once. 
For reservation of room inclose $5.00 reservation fee, to be 
credited on first payment. 

College Expenses 

Tuition, including matriculation, library, medical, hospital, 
contingent fees and athletic ticket admitting to all 
games, dramatic ticket admitting to annual Oglethorpe 
play, a copy of the Yamacraw (the College Annual), a 
year's subscription to the Petrel (the weekly student 
publication), and all other College fees such as labora- 
tory charges, $60. 00 per term as stated in College 

Board and Room Rent and Tuition and all fees as above 

New Government Building $145.(X) per term 

Administration Building, 3rd floor (two to room) $160.00

Oglethorpe University 91 

It will be observed that the total cost for the entire year, 
including tuition and all college fees, board and room rent, 
heat, light and janitor service ranges from $145.00 per term 
upward according to the rooming accommodations desired. 


Approximately fifteen per cent of the Oglethorpe student 
body are "working their way through college" in whole or 
in part. 

It is the intention of the authorities of the University to 
see that a way is provided as far as possible for the assis- 
tance of any student who may be in pecuniary need and yet 
desirous of prosecuting his studies at Oglethorpe. A special 
Faculty Committee will co-operate with students to that end. 

As a general rule it is best for the student that he should 
be able to devote all of his time to his academic duties, but 
where circumstances require it many students may under- 
take various tasks, payment for which materially aids them 
in meeting their expenses. 

For further information address the President, Oglethorpe 
University, Georgia. 


By the generosity of a good friend who does not wish 
his name mentioned, the University is able to lend a limited 
sum to deserving students who would otherwise be un- 
able to prosecute their studies at Oglethorpe. Further 
details upon application. 


The munificent generosity of Mr. and Mrs. Harry P. Her- 
mance in giving to Oglethorpe the sum of $50,000.00 for an 
Athletic Stadium, the finest in the South, makes feasible the 

92 Oglethorpe University 

development of all forms of field sports, including not only 
the great games of football and baseball, but also vaulting, 
jumping, discus and javelin throwing, track work, etc. 
Physical culture for all students will be required. 

A sanely encouraging attitude is taken by the University 
toward inter-collegiate athletics, and Oglethorpe University 
is acquitting herself well in that sphere of her educational 


In addition to those sports common to all well equipped 
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 
shore 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 suited for boating, rowing, swimming 
and fishing. 

The policy of Oglethorpe University includes the care of 
the physical life of our students as a matter of large impor- 
tance. (Physical and hygienic welfare and instruction 
will be a part of the curriculum of the institution.) 
Regular instruction, looking to symmetrical development 
of the entire man will be given in the Athletic Department 
of the University, under competent medical guidance. Spe- 
cial attention is at present given to outdoor athletics. Ade- 
quate provision is being made for football and baseball 
grounds, tennis courts, etc. Work has been begun on the 
Hermance Stadium. 


One of the interesting features of university life at Ogle- 
thorpe is the University Store, managed for the benefit of 
the students themselves, under the superintendence of the 

Oglethorpe University 93 

In the store are kept all the necessary college accessories. 
Any ordinary purchase may thus be made most convenient- 
ly, as full lines of goods answering the various college re- 
quirements are constantly kept on hand. 


The ability of a college or university to develop worthy 
character in its students depends largely upon that indefin- 
able quality called "college atmosphere." As a mother, she 
breathes her own soul into her boys. They inherit all she 
has been through, all of 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 o'vn 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 prom- 
inent ante-bellum universities she died for her ideals and 
alone of all the universities of America, God has raised her 
from the dead. 

By her every battle, her every faith, her every triumph, 
she has learned what things are really worth while and 
what hand really to lean upon. She will tell her children 
of Him. 


Regular chapel exercises, which the students are required 
to attend, are conducted by each of the members of the 
faculty in turn. The student life at Oglethorpe is also 
blessed by the activities of the Y. M. C. A., and frequent 
sermons and addresses by visiting pastors and evangelists. 

Oglethorpe University 


By the generosity of many friends, so great as to be al- 
most unparalleled, the University received during the first 
year of its life approximately ten thousand volumes for the 
library. These consist of standard works in Literature, His- 
tory and Science, with many valuable reference works in 
special departments. The Private Libraries of Dr. Sellers in 
Science, and of Dr. Nicolassen in the Classics, are both 
available for the use of the students in these departments. 
The policy of the institution is to let no year go without the 
enlargement of the library. A competent librarian is in 
charge and the rooms will be open during the year of 1922- 
23 approximately ten hours per day. The Public Library of 
Atlanta is also available for the use of our students. 


By the splendid generosity of Dr. Cheston King the Uni- 
versity will soon be enjoying a Library of English incompar- 
ably the finest south of Washington. The volumes for this 
library, including some seventeen thousand books and 
pamphlets, have been received, and will soon be available 
for graduate work. 


Among the unique honors offered at the University is the 
presentation of a sweater with the Caat-of-Arms blazoned 
thereon, which will be awarded in the future under the 
terms of the following resolution unanimously adopted by 
the Faculty of the University, upon recommendation of the 

"Resolved, that on and after September 1st, 1922, the 
Coat-of-Arms of Oglethorpe University shall be given to 
those students carrying a minimum of fifteen hours weekly. 

Oglethorpe University 


of excellent personal character and conduct, whose general 
average of all the courses taken during five preceding con- 
secutive terms shall have been not less than 93, or who, in 
lieu of said general average, shall have so distinguished 
themselves in some intellectual, creative, or constructive 
accomplishment as to entitle them thereto in the judgment 
of the Faculty." 

Previous awards of this honor have been made to the 
following: — 

Carlisle, W. R.

Quality is the word that expresses the Oglethorpe idea 
— quality in location, in climate, in campus, in architecture, 
in student character, in college life, in athletics and sports, 
in faculty, in curriculum, and in religion and morals. Every 
one of these we offer at Oglethorpe. 

Located in the commercial and educational capital of the 
South, with an unrivaled climate, on the most elegant street 
of that city, on a most beautiful campus of over one hun- 
dred and thirty acres of woodland and meadow, including 
an eighty-two acre lake which belongs to our students for 
swimming, boating and fishing, the physical advantages of- 
fered by Oglethorpe University are unsurpassed anywhere 
in the section. 

96 Oglethorpe University 

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


The attractions of the city of Atlanta as an educational 
center aie fast making it one of the great intellectual dyna- 
mos 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 comes 
lecturers, musicians, statesmen, evangelists, editors, teach- 
ers and officials of the United States. An intellectual at- 
mosphere created by such conditions and the frequent op- 
portunity of contact with these leaders in ail branches of 
human activity, offered frequently to our students, give 
Oglethorpe University an advantage of position and of op- 
portunity which she will cultivate to the uttermost. Facili- 
ties for hearing and meeting the great musicians and authors 
and public speakers and the leaders in all spheres of intellec- 
tual activity will be offered our students. The tremendous 
influence of such contact upon the young lives committed 
to us will be felt in increased ambition and redoubled de- 
termination to perform, themselves, their duty to their race 
and their God.

It is not going too far to say that the aesthetic tastes and 
home habits of many young men aie ruined at college by 
the cheap and unattractive furnishings of their rooms and 
the ugly forbidding architecturp of the building, whose walls 
often deface their campus. The architecture of an institu- 
tion of learning should be a constant source of delight and 
inspiration to its students, teaching quietly but surely the 
highest ideals of life. Indeed all those qualities of soul we 
know as honesty, solidity, dignity, durability, reverence and 
beauty may be expressed in the face of a building as surely 
as in that of a man, and are so expressed on the Oglethorpe 

Not less important are the personal surroundings of the 
student's room. Cheap, ugly and ill-equipped apartments 
have exactly the same influence on the soul of a boy that 
cheap, ugly and ill-equipped human companions have. That 
is why the rooms at Oglethorpe are handsomely furnished. 
The sons of the poor are entitled to the information and in- 
spiration such surroundings offer, and the sons of the rich 
will deteriorate without them. 

In brief the college education that does not teach a love 
of beauty and tidiness and what is popularly called "de- 
cency," is essentially and dangerously defective. 

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


Young men who desire to enjoy the daily personal contacc 
and instruction of the heads of departments will note with 
interest that our first few years will offer exceptional op 
portunities of that nature. It is well known that in all our 

100 Oglethorpe University 

large institutions only the upper classmen come in any close 
contact with the full Professors, who as heads of depart- 
ments occupy their time in other matters than educating 

We believe in giving our Freshmen the best we have, and 
they will be taught by men who have taught in or had of- 
fered them, chairs in the greatest universities of America. 
This will be a permanent policy at Oglethorpe. 


All students of all classes are required to take two 
hours a week of Physical Training. This is intended to 
keep the body in good condition, and is especially designed 
for the benefit of those students who do not take part in 
football, baseball, etc., but who need some stimulus to pay 
attention to their physical well being. 


The University maintains at all times an excellent in- 
firmary, with a graduate nurse in attendance, for the 
prompt treatment of accidents and of such cases of sickness 
as may occur. By this means prolonged and serious illness 
can often be prevented. During the recent influenza epi- 
demic vigorous measures were taken at once, with the re 
suit that, while there were a relatively small number of 
cases, there were no fatalities. There is a University phy- 
sican who can be secured on short notice when his services 
are needed. 


Examinations will be held once each term, and reports of 
the students' standing will be issued four times per year. 

Oglethorpe University 101 


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 v^ater, 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 Oglethorpe University, Georgia. 


Students coming to Oglethorpe University from a dis- 
tance should remember that Oglethorpe University has its 
own station on the main line of the Southern Railway be- 
tween Atlanta and Washington. Tickets may be purchased 
and baggage checked to Oglethorpe University, Georgia, 
the station being immediately in front of the campus. Stud- 
ents coming to Atlanta over other lines may either re-check 
their baggage to the University station, or may have it de- 
livered at a special rate of $1.00 per trunk by the Atlanta 
Baggage & Cab Company. In using the latter method men- 
tion should always be made of the special students' rate at 
the time the order is given. 


One of the most remarkable gatherings, even in this city 
of remarkable gatherings, was the assembling of approxi- 
mately two hundred of the representative women of the city 
of Atlanta at the home of Mrs. Thornwell Jacobs, Saturday 
afternoon, November 25, 1916, to organize a Women's Board 
for Oglethorpe University. 

The purpose of the Board is to aid the University in every 
wise and efficient way, with counsel of and guidance by the 
proper authorities of the Institu^on. Already more than 

102 Oglethorpe University 

two hundred of the finest workers and most representative 
women of the city have offered their services and joined 
the organization. Their activities are directed toward the 
support and development of Oglethorpe in every phase of 
its growth and activities. Each of the ladies is assigned 
to the committee on which she feels best able to serve. 
These committees cover the various departments of the 
University, and among them are: Ways and Means, Finance, 
Grounds, Press, Entertainment, Hospital, Music, Library, 
Arts, Refreshments, Transportation, and such other com- 
mittees as it may seem wise to the Board from time to time 
to appoint. 

The authorities of the University welcome the formation 
of this organization with the greatest joy. The mere fact 
that they have promised a devoted allegiance to the enter- 
prise has its own genuine value, but those who know the 
women of Atlanta, with their marvelous capacity for earn- 
est 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. 

Officers and Chairmen of the various committees have 
been unanimously chosen as follows: 

Mrs. Katherine H. Connerat, President; Mrs. Albert 
Thornton, St., First Vice-President; Mrs. E. P. McBumey, 
Second Vice-President; Mrs. George Winship, Jr., Third 
Vice-President; Mrs. Newton Craig, Fourth Vice-President; 
Mrs. George Brine, Fifth Vice-President; Mrs. I. R. Carlisle,
