UNION UNIVERSITY 
Historical Sketch 

UNION University is the descendant and heir to two 
earlier institutions — West Tennessee College at Jack- 
son and Union University at Murfreesboro, 

West Tennessee College was established in Jackson as an 
academy in 1834, when Jackson was only a village twelve 
years old. Most of the early history of the college is lost. 
It is not definitely known what year the school became a 
college, but a catalogue printed in 1844 has been discovered 
bearing the name West Tennessee College. This catalogue 
gives the faculty and students of the previous year, showing 
three classes, Freshman, Sophomore and Junior. The college 
really had its beginning in the provision of the North Caro- 
lina compact in ceding Tennessee to the United States gov- 
ernment to be made into a new state. It was provided that 
there should be two colleges established, one each in East 
and West Tennessee, and certain public lands were set apart 
to that end. In 1846 an act of Congress was passed ex- 
tinguishing the title to unappropriated lands south and west 
of the congressional reservation line, and the $40,000 aris- 
ing from the sale of these lands was set apart as an endow- 
ment fund for West Tennessee College, located in Jackson. 

The college was chartered in 1846 by an act of Congress 
signed by James K. Polk as President of the United States. 
Hon. Milton Brown represented this district at the time, 
and Andrew Johnson and Jefferson Davis were members of 
the Congress that passed the enabling act. The charter was 
also granted upon the authority of an act of the Tennessee 
Legislature at which time Aaron Brown was Governor. Hon. 
Harvey Watterson, father of Col. Henry Watterson, presi- 
dent of the Tennessee State Senate, signed the enabling act. 
It is rare, indeed, if not without parallel, that an institution 
of learning should have had as its godfathers a President 
of the United States, an American Congress, a State Gov- 
ernor and State Legislature, and as afterwards happened, 
a State Baptist Convention. 

Rev. S. M. McKinney, A. M., was first president. Little 
is known of the details of the development of the college 



UNION UNIVERSITY 15 

prior to the Civi] War. At the close of the war Dr. William 
Shelton was elected president, and under his administration 
the mstiUition grew rapidly until it was consolidated with 
Union University in 1875, when the property and endowment 
were estimated at $90,000. 

In the year 1845 the Baptist General Assembly of Tennes- 
see, resolved to establish and endow a college known sub- 
sequently as Union University. The sum of $65,000 was 
raised, and the institution was located at Aiurfreesboro The 
Reverend Dr. Joseph H. Eaton was the first president, and 
held this position until his death in January, 1859. During the 
years from 1861 to 1866, inclusive, the college was suspended 
on account of the Civil War. The building was greatly 
damaged, the library and apparatus were destroyed, and ttie 
endowment was wnolly lost. 

tuT]^^^°^^^^^ ^^ reopened in 1866 and continued until 
1873, when an epidemic of cholera and other causes led to 
a suspension of all work. On the 10th day of April, 1874 a 
convention was called at Murfreesboro to consider the ques- 
tion of re-establishing a college for the entire State, and a 
committee was appointed to locate it. Among the various 
propositions presented, Jackson was selected as the best site. 
On August 12, 1874, the Tennessee Baptist Convention, 
then in session at Trezevant, appointed a Board of Trustees 
consisting of thirty-five members. The institution was rc- 
chartered by the State on June 25, 1875, under the name of 
the bouthwestern Baptist University. 

M^P^ August 5, 1890, the campus, known prior to 1875, as 
West Tennessee College, was deeded. During this year, 
Colonel J. W. Rosamon was chosen as financial agent, and 
m SIX months he had secured about $30,000 in bonds Dur- 
ing the year 1890 Miss Willie Edwards of Shelby ville, 
Tennessee, made a gift to the endowment fund amounting to 
$3 310. In November of that year the American Baptist 
Education Society set aside $12,700, $2,700 of which was to 
?lf5PP i^u ^° ^^^ payment of the agent's salary to June 20. 
l«yf The remaining $10,000 was a gift conditioned on the 
raising of $40,000 additional to the $30,000 in individual 
bonds raised by Col. J. W. Rosamon, as stated above. The 
same percentage of the $10,000 was paid out of the $70,000 
in individual promises collected in 1897. In 1897 a move- 



16 UNION UNIVERSITY 

ment to endow the Chair of Logic and Moral Philosophy, 
in honor of J. R. Graves, resulted in raising $10,000. Dr. 
H. C. Irby was secretary of the movement. 

Through the liberality of Mr. W. T. Adams, of Corinth, 
Mississippi, and named in his honor, a dormitory for young 
men was erected in 1895, and in 1896 this building was en- 
larged by the addition of a three-story front. In 1897 a 
dormitory for young women was erected, which, in conse- 
quence of a gift from Mr. J. R. Lovelace of Martin, Tennes- 
see, was named "Lovelace Hall" in honor of his son Everett 
Lovelace. Both of these buildings are located on the college 
campus. 

A new chapel was completed in 1899, and, in honor of 
Dr. W. D. Powell, was named "Powell Chapel." In 1901-2 
the Perry Estate became the property of the University. 
With this the Perry School of Biblical Instruction was 
established in memory of Benjamin W. Perry, who gave 
his estate, amounting to $12,000, requesting it to be used 
especially in the education of young ministers. In the spring 
of 1905 Dr. H. C. Irby gave the University, under condi- 
tions accepted by the trustees, $18,000 which, with $7,000 
already given, made his gifts amount to $25,000. 

In May, 1905, the General Education Society offered the 
trustees $25,000 on permanent endowment, if the friends of 
the institution would promptly raise $75,000. The effort 
securing this offer in 1906 was successful under the leader- 
ship of President Hale. 

At a meeting of the Board of Trustees, September 17, 
1907, the name of the University was changed from South- 
western Baptist University to Union University, the name 
given in its organization in 1845. 

On January 20, 1912, the chapel and main building of the 
institution were entirely destroyed by fire. Much of the 
apparatus and the entire library were saved. The loss was 
partly covered by insurance. A movement to raise funds 
was begun at once, the present administration building being 
the result. On account of liberal gifts of Colonel O. C 
Barton, Paris, Tennessee, this building was named in his 
honor, "Barton Hall." 

In January, 1920, a campaign was launched by the Baptists 
of Tennessee for $100,000 for Union University. Most of 
it was subscribed and a part of it paid in cash, when the 



UNION UNIVERSITY 17 

larger movement. The Seventy-five Million Campaign of 
Southern Baptists, was launched. Union University's share 
of this fund was $200,000. 

In May, 1922, the citizens of Jackson contributed $25,000 
to an enlargement fund that resulted in the erection of the 
Joseph A. Crook Hall, the Gymnasium, and remodeling of 
the Dining Hall. The total cost of these buildings was about 
$60,000. 

In the fall of 1925 the board of trustees deeded all the 
property of the University to the Tennessee Baptist Con- 
vention, and secured a new charter which vested all rights 
and authority in the convention, which appoints all of the 
trustees. 

In 1927 the Hall-Moody Junior College was consolidated 
with Union University, its property was sold for its debts, 
and its records transferred to Union University. 

In 1928 a campaign was launched for funds to liquidate 
indebtedness and to increase endowment. This resulted in 
raising approximately $270,000 in cash and pledges. 

Union University has had the following presidents (No 
record of the presidents of West Tennessee College) : 

Joseph A. Eaton, who guided the initial stages from the 
early forties until the formal opening of the college, Jan- 
uary, 1848; from then he was president until his death, 
January 12, 1859; J. M. Pendleton, 1859-61 ; G. W. Jarman, 
1865-71; Charles Manley, 1871-72; G. W. Garman, 1872-

G. M. Savage, 1906-07; J. W. Conger, 1907-09; I. B. Tigrett, 
1909-11; R. A. Kimbrough, 1911-13; R. M. Inlow was 
elected June, 1913, but resigned soon after opening of fall 
term; A. T. Barrett, 1913-15; G. M. Savage, 1915-18; H. E. 
Watters, 1918-1931; A. W. Prince (Acting President), 1931- 
32; John Jeter Hurt, 1932-45; Warren F. Jones, 1945—

facilities, Jackson is now the center of nearly as many bus 
routes, and fine highways radiate out in every direction. 

Jackson is a progressive city of thirty thousand inhabi- 
tants, distinguished for hospitality and beautiful residences. 
Though industries abound and prosper, it is peculiarly a city 
of homes and flowers, a place of culture and refinement ; alike 
attractive to the resident, the visitor, and the student. Many 
families have moved here primarily for superior educational 
advantages.

Endowment, Current Assets, and 

Endowment Notes 358,594.22 



Total $917,967.55 

The Tennessee Baptist Convention appropriates money 
each year to the college for current expenses. The amount 
received last year was approximately $45,000 which is 
equivalent to the income from an additional endowment of 
$1,500,000.00. 

Grounds 
The campus proper of the University, containing approxi- 
mately 10 acres, is located in the eastern part of the city 
within four blocks of the business district. 

Buildings 

Adams Hall — On August 13, 1918, the front part of 
Adams Hall was destroyed by fire, but was rebuilt, and made 
better and more modern than before. Since July, 1945, the 
building has been completely repaired and redecorated. 

Everette Lovelace Hall — This dormitory for }oung women 
is a home-like, three-story building, sufficiently large to house 
fifty girls comfortably. 

Joseph A. Crook Hall— The Joseph A. Crook Hall, the 
young women's home on the south campus, was erected in 
memory of the late Dr. J. A. Crook, who was a member of 



UNION UNIVERSITY 19 

the Board of Trustees for forty years. This modern fire- 
proof, two-story building has been completely renovated dur- 
ing the past year. It is sufficiently large to accommodate 50 
girls comfortably. 

Barton Hall — This is the Administration building and con- 
tains the administrative offices, recitation rooms, the chapel, 
the library, the book store and post office, and the fraternity 
rooms. 

Dining Hall — The dining hall is conveniently located for 
all resident students. The kitchen adjoining is well equipped 
and modern in every respect. A new building is under 
construction. 

Home Management House — This building is of Dutch 
Colonial design, adequate in size and arrangement for suc- 
cessful laboratory use in home management. At present it 
is being temporarily used as a fine arts building. 

Library and Reading Facilities — A new Library and Read- 
ing Room will be ready for use in the fall of 1947. There are 
about sixteen thousand volumes, besides pamphlets, including 
the T. T. Eaton bequest. The Reading Room contains the 
leading magazines, religious periodicals, and daily papers. 
The Jackson Free Public Library is within four blocks of 
the University, on College Street, and our students have free 
access to it. 

/. A^. Penick Home — The two-story brick house, the former 
home of Dr. Penick, was given to Union University by his 
grandson, Paul Isbell, for married ministerial students who 
are attending college classes. 

The Athletic Field — During the session of 1937-1938 
Union deeded to the City of Jackson its football field, on 
condition that the city erect thereon a modern stadium and 
allow the University the use of it for all of its football games. 
There has been erected a stadium at a cost of $40,000, which 
is just across the street from Union's campus. There are 
seating accommodations for 5,000 people in concrete stands, 
and a modern cinder track circles the grounds. The field has 
been well graded, and is covered with a beautiful turf.

STUDENT LIFE 
Fundamental Regulations 

First. Students are not permitted to give entertainment 
during the college session, either on the campus or in the 
name of the school or any department or any organization 
of it, in the city, without consent of the President or faculty 
committee. 

Second. Only bona fide students will be permitted to 
represent the college in public performances. Eligibility, in- 
cluding academic standing, for participation in intercollegiate 
sports is determined by the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic 
Association and the Volunteer State Athletic Conference, 
both of which Union University is a member. 

Third. Except by special consent, students must attempt 
to take not more than seventeen hours a quarter. Only in 
very exceptional cases will consent be granted for one addi- 
tional hour. Students working for part of their expenses 
must take proportionately less school work. 

Fourth. No clubs, fraternities, or societies may be formed 
unless the faculty, on application, approves the design of such 
organizations, the rules by which it proposes to be governed, 
and the hours of meeting. The faculty reserves the right to 
limit or to disband any such organizations. 

Fifth. The following regulations govern eligibility to 
membership in any fraternity or sorority : 

(a) All regular college students having the minimum of 
30 college hours and 30 quality credits, excepting those who 
have not passed all their work for the quarter preceding 
initiation. 

(b) Faculty approval for initiation will be conditioned 
upon grades as well as hour credit. 

(c) In order for a student to be eligible for initiation, 
his number of quality credits must equal the number of hours 
attained, for any above minimum sophomore standing. 

Note: (1) Fraternities and sororities must have the 
consent of the faculty to initiate any student. 

Note: (2) All freshmen must have been in residence 
two weeks before being promised or pledged to any fraternity. 



UNION UNIVERSITY 21 

Note: (3) The membership of each of the men's fra- 
ternities is limited to twelve percent of the male students 
enrolled. 

Note: (4) The membership of each of the women's 
fraternities is limited to thirty-five. 

Sixth. No student will be allowed to deliver the same 
oration in more than one contest. This does not apply to 
intercollegiate contests. 

Seventh. Students must be quiet and orderly in the resi- 
dence halls, and thoughtful of the rights of others. 

Eighth. While the faculty cannot assume full responsibil- 
ity for the boarding students not on the campus, it reserves the 
right to make such regulations at any time as may seem 
advisable, and the violation of the regulations on the part 
of a student may deprive him of the privileges of the school. 

Ninth. The faculty will deal with all of the student or- 
ganizations in the matter of discipline as with individuals. 

Discipline 

The President of the University and the discipline com- 
mittee are charged with the administration of discipline. 
They are clothed with power to rule in any irregularity per- 
taining to student routine. 

All students on entering any of the halls, voluntarily and 
tacitly agree to obey all rules of conduct and deportment that 
govern the halls. 

Adams Hall has Student Government under the direction 
of the hostess of the hall. 

Note : It sometimes happens that a student's presence in 
a hall is inimical to the best interests of the hall, and yet 
specific charges are difficult or embarrassing to make. Some- 
times it is an accumulation of minor things which, taken 
separately, appear trivial. Sometimes the charges may be too 
serious to be openly preferred. In all such cases the interests 
of the hall as a home and sometimes of the individual him- 
self, demand that he change his residence. Therefore, the 



22 UNION UNIVERSITY 

school in assigning rooms hereby explicitly reserves the right 
to cancel the reservation either before or v^hile the student 
occupies the room without preferring any specific charge what- 
ever. Only in such cases is room rent ever refunded. Stu- 
dents may petition for one's removal without stating charges, 
or of having their names known to any except the president 
and the hall superintendent interested. 

Religious Life 

Emphasis is placed not only upon the training of the body 
and the mind, but also upon the development of the moral and 
religious nature. In chapel exercises, in class rooms, in every 
relation where the occasion arises it is in accord with the 
policy of the college that emphasis be given to the need for 
and value of Christian living. 

There are several religious organizations among the stu- 
dents : 

First. The J. R. Graves Society exclusively for ministerial 
students, which meets once a week for discussion of religious 
topics. This society has made a valuable contribution to the 
religious development of the South. All are expected to at- 
tend. 

Second. The B. S. U. (Baptist Student Union) Council, 
which has general concern for the religious activities of the 
school. 

Third. The Y. W. A. is an organization of young women, 
which meets weekl}^, and which has made an excellent record 
for the past several years. 

The students conduct prayer meetings regularly in their 
halls. Each day at noon they have a twenty minute prayer 
meeting in the chapel or some other designated room. 

A revival is conducted each 3^ear at some time during the 
session, and other periods of religious emphasis are observed, 
such as Religious Emphasis Week and Religious Focus Week. 
Continuous emphasis upon Christian growth is carried out. 

Awards 

The Zeta Tau Alpha Award of fifteen dollars to the senior 
of the June class graduating summa cum laude. 

The Chi Omega Award of fifteen dollars to the non-Chi 
Omega girl who makes the best record in psychology. 

The Charles H. Strickland medal, established by Mrs. C. H. 
Strickland for the best orator in the senior class. This is an 
endowed medal. . . 



UNION UNIVERSITY 23 

The Elizabeth Tigrett medal, founded by I. B. Tigrett in 
honor of his mother. The award is based on the following 
qualities and characteristics : citizenship, character, leadership, 
scholarship, school service. It is awarded to the senior who has 
in the opinion of the faculty, made the best record during the 
four years in college. The student must be a member of some 
literary society or literary club. This medal carries with it the 
highest honors of the senior class. 

Student Organizations and Activities 

The University is not responsible for any financial obligation 

incurred by a student organization, student, member 

of faculty, or employee unless authorised 

by the President or Business 

Ma'nager in writing. 

Athletic Association 

This association promotes and fosters teams and games in 
football, basketball, track and tennis. It stands for and in- 
sists upon clean and wholesome athletics and has maintained 
very high standards. Through its high standards and in- 
fluence, young men are toned up in their moral character and 
ideals, and even in their religious views. 

Union is a member of the Southern Inter-Collegiate 
Athletic Association (S.I.A.A.) and the Volunteer State 
Athletic Conference. 

Intramural Athletic Activities 

During the fall and spring quarters in particular, a program 
of intra-mural sports is carried on in such activities as volley 
ball, horseshoes, badminton, soft ball, ping pong, etc., for 
both boys and girls. A point system is used and awards are 
given at the close of the year. 

Student Publications 

"Cardinal and Cream" 
This is a bi-monthly college paper edited and published 
by the students and is a bright, readable paper. Sample 
copies will be sent upon request. 



24 UNION UNIVERSITY 

"Lest We Forget" 

This is a beautiful year book, well bound, and issued every 
year by the students. It is a volume always greatly prized 
by the students, and one that grows in value with the passing 
years. 

Clubs 

Student Council 

The membership of the Student Council is composed of a 
representative from each of the four classes, one represen- 
tative elected by the student body at large, and the president 
of the student body. The purpose of the Council is to provide 
a means of mediation for any problem that may arise from 
the student body, and to be a nucleus for planning any sports, 
contest, or event that will help build the morale of the school. 
The Council meets regularly in the office of the president. 

Boosters Club 

The Boosters Club is a new organization composed of rep- 
resentatives elected from the various geographical clubs. Its

a first minor in history if they have a high scholastic standing. 
Its purpose is to encourage scholarship and to aid the students 
in keeping abreast with historical events as they occur.

fifty years ago. It is a literary club composed of fifteen 
young women. The sponsor is elected annually when the 
officers are chosen. 

Home Echo 

The Home Echo Club is composed of freshmen and sopho- 
more girls who have made an average of B in their Home 
Economics courses. The purpose of the club is to provide 
group study in the field of Home Economics.

geographical regions of the United States, mainly by states, 
such as The Mississippi Club or the Kentucky Club. Each 
student is a member of one of them.

Fraternities and Sororities 

Union has five national fraternities — Alpha Tau Omega, 
Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Chi Omega, Zeta Tau Alpha, and Tau 
Kappa Alpha. The last named is an honorary forensic fra- 
ternity. They have their own special activities and functions, 
and add variety and charm to the college life. 

Debating 

The debating of Union is under the direction of a faculty 
debate sponsor. The varsity team, selected in competitive 
tr3^outs, meets teams from other colleges in single contests 
and in various tournaments. Each member of the regular 
team receives three hours' credit for a year's participation 
in this activity. 

University Health Service 

It is the aim of the University to help the student main- 
tain the highest possible standard of health, certainly not 
lower than that enjoyed before he entered school. It is 
even hoped that by sound advice we may be able to improve 
the health condition of many and will do so with the co- 
operation of the students. 

To this end the University has employed a College phy- 
sician and adopted a sound physical training program for 
all, and will insist upon its observance within bounds of safe 
medical advice of the College physician. 

Each student upon enrolling will be thoroughly examined 
by the College physician. He will be re-examined at the 
, beginning of each year and at such times and in such man- 
ners as deemed necessary by the Universit3\ 

The health status of the students will be taken into con- 
sideration for those wishing to carry an unusual load. 

Athletes must be approved by the College physician before 
being permitted to participate in major sports. Examinations 



UNION UNIVERSITY 27 

will be repeated during the period of participation in said 
major sports. 

Persons found to be disease carriers, or to otherwise con- 
stitute a health menace to the school will be asked to with- 
draw from the University. 

No fee will be assessed other than the medical fee as stated 
under expenses. To aid the College physician the University 
employs a trained nurse and maintains a sick and convalescing 
ward.

Students who entered college before the fall quarter of 
1938 may obtain an elementary teacher's certificate by meet- 
ing the following requirements: 

1. 90 quarter hours of college credit, 18 of which must 
be in education. 

2. 12 weeks of work in residence. 

FOUR-YEAR CURRICULUM FOR TEACHERS 
Elementary Teachers: The two-year curriculum as out- 
lined above constitutes the requirements for a permanent 
professional elementary certificate in Tennessee. Students 
who plan to spend four years in college, however, may dis- 
tribute this work over the longer period. Salaries of elemen- 
tary teachers in Tennessee are based on number of years of 
college work. Students qualifying for the elementary cer- 
tificate with three or four years of college work receive a 
higher salary rating than those who qualify with two years 
of college work. 

High School Teachers: Students who wish to secure a 
permanent professional high school teacher's certificate in 
Tennessee may do so on the basis of the following qualifi- 
cations : 

1. Complete all requirements for the A. B. or B. S. de- 
gree. 

2. Complete the following professional courses : 

a. Education 201, 210, 318, 402. 

b. Six quarter hours of special methods in subjects in 
which the student expects to certificate, 

or 
three quarter hours of special methods in a subject 
in which the student expects to certificate and three 
quarter hours of directed teaching. 

c. Nine quarter hours selected from Education 209, 

320, 404, 415, 416, 319. 

3. Complete the required number of quarter hours in each 
of the subjects in which it is desired to certificate. Since the 
number of quarter hours required and their distribution 
varies in the dififerent subject fields, the student will plan this

The above rates apply to rooms in both girls' and men's

which have an additional charge of $5.00 per quarter. 

Room Reservation — We have a limited number of rooms, 
and for the past several years they have been engaged before 
the opening of school. This has necessitated our requiring 
a reservation fee of $10, which is not refunded, but is applied 
on the students' account. 

Note: Any student rooming on the campus who vacates 
his room before the end of the year must serve written notice 
two weeks in advance of vacating in order to claim his room 
deposit. 

Heat and Lights 

vStudents living in the halls, but doing their own cooking, 
will pay additional for water, heat, and light, as follows : Fall 
quarter $8, winter quarter $10, spring quarter $8. Each 
summer term $4. These fees are charged because the cost 
of heat, water, and light is charged in the account for boards

Late Entrance Fees 

A late entrance fee of $5.00 will be charged those not com- 
pleting their enrollment through the Bursar's office by the 
third day of any term. . ^ 

Unpaid Bills and Final Examinations 

Students having unpaid bills at the time of the quarter 
examinations will not be admitted to the examinations 
until satisfactory settlement has been made. This rule 
will be adhered to strictly; both the students and their 
families should understand this before registration. 

Deposit Fees 

Each student living on the campus or enrolling in a Physics 
or Chemistry course makes a contingent deposit of $10 to 
cover breakage or damage for which he may be held respon- 
sible. The whole or any unexpended part of the contingent 
deposit will be refunded when the student graduates or 
definitely withdraws from the University without graduating, 
provided the student has not previously left the University 
without permission. From time to time, as circumstances 
require, demand will be made for restoration of the contin- 
gent deposit to the original amount, in the event damage 
charges have reduced the deposit. This deposit covers lab- 



40 UNION UNIVERSITY 

oratory breakage, key deposit, and any other miscellaneous 
items for which special payment may be due from the in- 
dividual student. 

Refunds 

Room rents, matriculation fees, student fees, maintenance 
fees, and room reservation fees are never refunded. Board 
is refunded for absence of even weeks, no fractions of a 
week considered. No refunds may be claimed for board 
for the last week of any term. 

Tuition is refunded in the Literary Department, provided 
that no refund will be considered for less than one month's 
absence in any term, and full month's tuition will be charged 
for any fraction of a month that the student may be in at- 
tendance. Refund of tuition in cases of withdrawal from 
school for disciplinary reasons is left to the discretion of the 
administration. Students in refusing to conform to the dis- 
ciplinary rules of the school forfeit all claims for refunds. 

No refund will be made for reduction in number of credit 
hours after two weeks of term has elapsed. 

The claim for refund will he considered only from the 
date Bursar is notified in writing of absence. Where possible 
the Bursar should he notified in advance. No claim may he 
made for time preceding such notification. Reasons for these 
rules are obvious. 

Any student rooming on the campus who vacates his room 
before the end of the year must serve written notice two 
weeks in advance of vacating in order to claim his room 
deposit. 

All athletic equipment issued to the students must be re- 
turned by them to the equipment man for credit. Other- 
wise, it will be charged against their accounts and they will 
be required to pay for it. 

It will be observed that all of the above rules and regu- 
lations put the responsibility upon the pupil. He saves money 
by seeing the President and Bursar immediately. 

Loan Funds 

Walter Gray Fund 
In August, 1918, Mrs. Sallie Patrick gave the University 
a sum of money to be used as a fund to be loaned to worthy 



UNION UNIVERSITY 41 

students in memory of her deceased son, Walter Gray. In 
the first year it enabled nine of the best students in college 
to continue through the year. Most of them have since 
graduated and are holding good positions. Mrs. Patrick 
was so well pleased with the results that she later visited 
the college and added another thousand dollars to the fund. 
She left in her will $1,000 for this fund, which has assisted 
about forty young people. This fund now amounts to nearly 
$2,000. 

Betty Sevier White Memorial Fund 
The Betty Sevier White Memorial Fund was established 
in January, 1919, by her husband, Mr. Henry White, and 
son, Henry White, Jr., of Jackson, Tennessee. The estab- 
lishment of this fund is a worthy tribute to one who had been 
active in her church life and in her interest in young people. 

Lanier Fund 
In September, 1920, Mr. W. J. Lanier brought to the 
President's office $1,500 in bonds, requesting that it be used 
in assisting worthy students, establishing a fund in memory 
of his father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. J. P. Lanier, and 
his daughter. Ruble Marie. Mr. Lanier has later made ad- 
ditions to this fund. 

W. H. Nichols Fund 
In April, 1921, Mr. W. H. Nichols established a fund to 
be loaned to young ladies studying for missionary work. 
Mr. Nichols was touched by the fact that while there has 
been much done for the education of young preachers, there 
has been no fund of this kind to assist missionary girls. 

L. J. Brooks Fund 
In May, 1921, Dr. L. J. Brooks, an alumnus of West 
Tennessee College (now Union University), established a 
fund of $500 in grateful recognition of his interest in his 
Alma Mater, and in young people who have to struggle in 
getting through college. 

Waldrop Brothers Fund 
In April, 1922, Messrs. Homer and Floyd Waldrop, 
students in Union University, realizing the need and value 



42 UNION UNIVERSITY 

of such funds, established a loan fund of $500 — a worthy 
monument to two worthy students. 

Ministerial Loan Fund 
A fund provided in recent years by the Baptist State 
Executive Board to be loaned to young ministers. 

Class of 1922-23 

The class of 1922 established a fund of $1,000 as a class 
memorial. It was their hope that other classes would follow 
their example, which in the course of a few years would 
establish sufficient funds to afford every worthy student the 
opportunity of a college education. 

The class of '22 was not disappointed, for the class of '23 
followed their example and established a fund of $570. 

H. C. Saunders Fund 
Because of his deep interest in Christian Education, Dr. 
H. C. Saunders has set up a Loan Fund for worthy young 
men and women, which now amounts to $1,000. 

The Crump Fund 
Mrs. W. O. Crump, being impressed with the possibilities 
of loan funds for rendering a great service to worthy young 
people, has started a fund with $200. 

Mrs. Alice Sturgis Aiiston Loan Fund 

This fund was given to the college by Miss Lara Kendall 
in memory of her mother, Mrs. Alice Sturgis Auston, to be 
used to aid young women in securing a Christian education. 

/. /. Hurt Scholarship Fund 
A scholarship fund established in 1945 by President 
Emeritus John Jeter Hurt and his sons, available to students 
who satisfy scholarship requirements to be set up by the 
donors. 

Norton Ministerial Aid Fund 
Because of their concern for students who have dedicated 
their lives to special religious service, Mr. F. L. Norton and 
daughter, Mrs. R. W. Norton, in 1945 established a fund 
for these worthy students. The gift now amounts to $2,265 
and it is being supplemented each year.

UNION UNIVERSITY 43 

Hall-Moody-I. N. Penick Loan Fund 
The trustees of Hall-Moody Junior College have trans- 
ferred to Union University the loan funds that had been 
donated there, amounting to something more than $5,000, 
this fund to bear the name indicated. This fund is rep- 
resented at present almost entirely by notes of students to 
whom it has been loaned. It will become available for 
students in Union as the notes are paid. 

The Clarence E. Pigford Memorial Scholarship 
Mrs. Clarence E. Pigford has given to the University the 
sum of $2,500.00 to create a perpetual scholarship to be 
known as the Clarence E. Pigford Memorial Scholarship. 
The annual returns from this investment shall be donated to 
some worthy young man or woman. This is a memorial to 
one of the University's most distinguished alumni. 

Other Funds 

Certain Sunday school classes in the First Baptist Church, 
Jackson, the Men's Sunday school class of the First Baptist 
Church, Clarksville, the West Jackson Church, and the 
W. M. U. of the Central Association have given funds which 
have made it possible for several students to remain in school. 
The late Miss Mabel Edenton established a fund of several 
hundred dollars. The S. S. Sargent Loan Fund for Teachers 
and the Laura Pettigrew Appleton Fund were established by 
H. B. Appleton. A special friend of '27 is establishing a 
fund by monthly contributions. 

Still other funds established by individuals and organiza- 
tions are : Cox Ministerial, Crook, Chi Omega, Guy C. Hall, 
Metz, Missionary Girls, Hattie Mackey, R. K. Bennett, 
Crockett, and Loan Fund for Girls. 

Rules and Regulations 
The above funds, except those designated otherwise, are 
loaned under the following regulations : First, funds are 
available to students who have demonstrated their real worth 
in college. Class records and deportment in general are 
considered. They must be recommended by all their teach- 
ers. Second, six per cent interest is charged. Third, at 
present, owing to the limited amount at our disposal we 
must limit the amount loaned to any student to one hundred 
dollars a year. Fourth, students who do not have insurance 
protection or property must offer approved security.

PHYSICAL TRAINING AND 
INTERCOLLEGIATE ATHLETICS 

Physical Training 

Correlated with the health program of the school is an 
extensive physical training setup. This includes ample play- 
ground equipment and provisions for major sports to insure 
suitable exercises for all. Six hours of credit is required of 
all students in physical training as well as another six hours 
in theory and health content subjects. 

The physical training should be taken in the freshman or 
sophomore years, but for transfer students and others who 
have postponed this training it must be made up before grad- 
uating. 

Teachers planning to supervise physical training in State 
Schools will be required to earn ten additional hours in 
physical training and health which with the twelve specified 
above aggregates twenty-two quarter hours. 

The University employs a competent physical training 
instructor, a coach for major sports, and ample playground 
supervisors to make this program a success. 

Intercollegiate Athletics 

Union University believes in training the body as well as 
the mind and soul. Perhaps nothing encourages an interest 
in physical exercise more than college athletics. While it 
usually happens that those who are on the teams are already 
developed, and therefore do not need the inter-collegiate 
contests for their own physical growth, yet it is true that 
most of them were originally aroused to an interest in the 
development of their bodies either by practicing in games, or 
by watching the games of others. 

In order that our college teams may be a credit to the 
institution, and that it will be a compliment to a young person 
to be a member of the team, the faculty has adopted the 
following rules which will be strictly adhered to: 

1. None but bona fide students of this institution shall 
be allowed to participate in inter-collegiate or inter-scholastic 
contests. By "bona fide" student is meant : 

(a) Any student who is carrying a regular course of 
study of not fewer than twelve hours a week in the in- 
stitution, and who was enrolled at or near the first of the 
term in which he plays. 



UNION UNIVERSITY 45 

(b) Any student who has not failed or who has been 
conditioned on not more than one-third of his work. 

(c) Any student whose classification conforms to the 
ruling governing classification of all students as shown on 
page 47. 

2. A member of the faculty shall accompany all teams 
when away from the University. 

3. All funds shall pass through the books of the College 
office and all checks be signed by the Bursar and President, 
and the President shall approve all contracts or orders in- 
volving money. 

4. All rules of the SIAA and the VSAC will be adhered 
to whether or not they are included in those above. 

CLASSWORK AND ROUTINE 

Change of Classes 

No change can be made without the written consent of the 
Professor or Professors concerned, and the Dean, and the 
permit must bear the Bursar's stamp. Any student who 
makes a class change without a change card properly filled 
in, and filed with the Bursar at the beginning of the term, 
shall not receive credit for the work of the course in ques- 
tion, even if claim is made at the close of the term. (These 
fees may be remitted where changes are made upon the 
recommendation of the Dean or President, or if necessitated 
by any changes made in the program by the Dean. Fees 
remitted only upon the approval of the President or Dean.) 

No change may be made in classes after the seventh day 
of the term. 

Size of Classes 

Except under extreme circumstances, classes will be com- 
posed of a minimum of 10 to 12. 

Dropping of Classes 
No course may be dropped after the third week. Dropping 
of classes requires the same permission on change card as 
indicated in the change of classes above. 

Grading System and Quality Credits 

All work is graded by letters which may be interpreted in 
percentage figures as follows : A 95-100, B 85-94, C 75-84, 



46 UNION UNIVERSITY 

D 65-74, F below 65. A, B, C, and D are passing grades, F is 
failure. A failure can only be removed by taking the course 
over again in class. P, indicating incomplete work, or ab- 
sence from examination by excuse, must be made up within 
the next quarter of the student's residence; otherwise the 
incomplete grade becomes a failure. 

For graduation a student must present a minimum of 192 
quality credits, in addition to the regular 192 hour credits. 
When more than 192 hour credits are presented, the number 
of quality credits must equal the number of hour credits. 
It is not enough to have the required number of credits; 
they must be of standard quality. The system of quality 
credits is as follows: 

Three quality credits are given for each credit hour of "A" 
grade, two quality credits for each credit hour of "B" grade, 
one quality credit for each credit hour of "C" grade, and none 
for grades of "D". Two quality credits shall be subtracted 
for each hour of "F" grade. 

NOTE: A student failinir on half of any quarter's work 
will be warned. U he does not improve in the succeeding 
quarter, he will be asked to withdraw from schooL 

Honor Students 
Students making an average of 2.5 quality credits for each 
hour of credit, which is half-way between **A" and **B", 
during their college course, graduate as honor students, 
cum laude; the one ranking highest, with summa cum 
laudC: and the three ranking next below the highest, with 
magna cum laude, provided all are above the required 480 
quality credits. 

Regidations Concerning Quantity of Work 
Freshmen, except pre-professional students, may not reg- 
ister for more than sixteen hours during their first quarter. 
After this time they may register for not more than seven- 
teen hours unless during the preceding quarter they made an 
average of "B" or above. The maximum number of hours 
for any student is eighteen. 

Students who have employment other than school work 
may not at any time take over sixteen hours. 

Class Absences 
At the end of each week each teacher shall make a report 
to the Dean's ofifice of all absences in his classes. 



r 



UNION UNIVERSITY 47 

A student who is absent from class more times than the 
number of periods the class meets per week will be charged 
with one-half quarter hour per course missed, this negative 
hour to be charged against the total number of hours for 
which the student is enrolled. If he is absent more than twice 
the number of times the class meets per week, he will be 
charged with an additional one-half quarter hour per course 
missed. 

A student who is absent more than two and one-half times 
the number of periods the class meets per week will be auto- 
matically dropped from the class. Upon recommendation of 
the discipline committee, he will be dropped without penalty. 
If not approved by the discipline committee, he will be drop- 
ped with failures in the courses missed. 

Chnpel Attendance 

All students are required to attend the regular chapel 
exercises each school day except Saturday. 

If the number of absences from chapel exceeds a total of 
five during any quarter, the student will be charged with one- 
half quarter hour. If the number exceeds ten, he will be 
charged with an additional one-half quarter hour. If the 
number exceeds thirteen, the student will be automatically 
suspended from school for the remainder of the quarter, 
unless re-instated by the discipline committee. 

ABSENCES FROM CLASS AND CHAPEL IMME- 
DIATELY PRECEDING AND IMMEDIATELY FOL- 
LOWING STATED HOLIDAYS WILL BE CHARGED 
AS DOUBLE CUTS. 

Classification of Students 

College students will be classified as follows : 

(a) A student will be classified as a freshman who has no 
conditions required for entrance and is carrying at least 
twelve hours of freshman work in the fall quarter. 

(b) A student will be classified as a sophomore who has 
at least 36 hours of college work to his credit and 36 quality 
credits. 

(c) A student will be classified as a junior who has at 
least 84 hours to his credit and 84 quality credits. 

(d) A student will be classified as a senior who has at 
least 129 hours and one quality credit for each hour. 



4S UNION UNIVERSITY 

Degrees Offered 

The University at the present is offering but two degrees — 
Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science. The require- 
ments for the Bachelor of Arts degree are indicated in the 
table of majors and their prescribed minors as given on 
pages 52 ff. 

For the Bachelor of Science degree the student must 
major in science, or he may substitute science for the two 
years of foreign language. The requirements for the two 
degrees, B. S. and A. B., are otherwise the same.

No student may receive a degree who has not had at least 
three quarters in residence at Union. All of the work of 
the last quarter must be taken in residence, except as specified 
on page 32. 

Students are not allowed to graduate who by taking extra 
hours have shortened their college courses by more than one 
and one-half quarters. 

A student may have two bachelor degrees (e. g.. Bachelor 
of Arts and Bachelor of Science,) conferred when the re- 
quirements of both have been fully met, provided that he has 
not fewer than forty-five hours to offer, over and above that 
required for the first degree. 

Applications for enrollment in the section of the Senior 
Class graduating in May should be filed in writing with the 
Dean not later than the beginning of the winter quarter. 
August seniors must have their applications finally passed 
upon in the first summer term. 

No one will be considered a member of the Senior Class 
until passed upon by the faculty in session. All conditions 
must be removed by the opening of the last quarter. No one 
with conditions may have his name appear on the class an- 
nouncements without special permission by the faculty. 
Those who enter their last term with no conditions may 
be excused from final examinations, provided they have been 
faithful in their work and make "excellent" on their daily 



UNION UNIVERSITY 49 

grades for the term. This rule does not apply to freshman 
subjects taken in the senior year, nor does it exempt in the 
spring quarter those who are to graduate in the summer 
quarter. 

Preparation for Graduate Work 

Students planning to continue their studies in graduate 
schools after leaving Union will do well to have the Dean 
or President advise with them in planning their undergraduate 
work to fit in with the requirements of the graduate school. 
This will require that the student select the graduate school 
he wishes to attend and the fields in which he wishes a 
major and minor, and to do the work required in those fields 
by the school or schools selected. Failure to do this has 
caused many students embarrassment and much loss of time 
with its accompanying expense in making up the under- 
graduate courses prescribed as prerequisites in their major 
and minor graduate courses. A reading knowledge of 
French and German is usually required in the graduate 
school.

GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS 
General Requirements 

THE total number of quarter hours required in each group 
is 192. Credits are determined by quarters; one credit 
hour means one hour of class work a week in a single 
subject throughout a quarter. The school year is divided 
into three quarters, so that the above requirement is equiva- 
lent to 64 year hours or 128 semester hours. 

Notice: Time is required as well as hours credit. A 
minimum of ten and one-half quarters of residence are re- 
quired for graduation. Students can not enter twelve weeks 
classes later than the fifth day. 

In each group a certain number of electives may be taken 
from any of the regular college courses offered, but must be 
other than those required in that particular group. How- 
ever, the wise student will always finish his required work 
first. Failure to do this frequently forces students to do 
more than 192 hours in order to graduate. 

Credit for work done in the Fine Arts Department can 
be counted up to a total of 30 quarter hours as elective in 
a Liberal Arts course. 

All students are discouraged from offering just one year 
in language, but may do so for special reasons satisfactory 
to the Dean. 

The maximum number of hours allowed in any one subject 
shall be fifty-four. 

Any student leaving a freshman subject until the senior 
year shall receive one hour less credit each quarter for the 
delayed work. 

At the beginning of his junior year each student is required 
to choose the department in which he wishes to major, and 
then to consult the head of that department regularly in 
selecting the courses of study to be pursued. The student 
will be permitted to change to another department only by 
the consent of a committee consisting of the dean and the 
two professors involved. 

Seniors in the class of 1948 will be given a standardized 
advanced comprehensive examination, including advanced 
examinations in their major fields, for record only. Seniors 
in the class of 1949 will be given the same type of examina- 



UNION UNIVERSITY 51 

tion as the 1948 class but will be required to pass a stand- 
ardized comprehensive examination in their respective major 
fields as a prerequisite for graduation. Students who fail to 
take the comprehensive examination, above mentioned for the 
years 1948-49, will be required to take a twelve hour seminar 
followed by a comprehensive examination. 

Seniors of 1950 and thereafter will be required to pass 
both the general standardized comprehensive and the advanced 
comprehensive in their major fields as a prerequisite to grad- 
uation. 

A fee of $5.00 will be charged each senior for this service. 

Occasionally students find it necessary to pursue their 
college work over a period of time longer than the average. 
Such students, by securing permission from the Administra- 
tive Committee, may graduate either under the course require- 
ments specified in the catalog of the year of their admission, 
or the course requirements in force at the time of their ap- 
plication for graduation. 

Scholastic Requirements for Graduation 

The requirements for the Bachelor's degree from the 
College of Arts and Sciences are 192 quarter hours credit, 
not fewer than 192 quality credits. 

The completion of the 192 hours usually requires four 
years, at the rate of forty-eight hours per year. Of these 
the first or freshman year is spent in general or introductory 
work, comprising courses in several departments and widely 
separated subjects. During the remaining three years, the 
student may combine his work within certain comparatively 
narrow limits. The work for the entire four year course 
consists of: (1) prescribed courses, (2) major and minor 
subjects, and (3) electives. 

1. Prescribed Courses for Graduation 

1. It is recommended that a student who expects to work 
toward a Bachelor of Arts degree should take, in his fresh- 
man year, the following subjects: Freshman English, 9 
hours; one Foreign language, 9 to 12 hours according to 
amount of credit offered ; 9 hours of freshman mathematics. 

2. Students who are candidates for the Bachelor of 
Science degree may substitute 18 hours work in mathematics 



52 UNION UNIVERSITY 

and science above the specifically required science and mathe- 
matics in lieu of the two years foreign language required 
for the Bachelor of Arts degree. A person desiring a Bache- 
lor of Science degree and who has not satisfied the entrance 
requirement for foreign language must make up the deficiency 
in addition to the above work. 

3. For graduation in all courses, the following subjects 
are required: 9 hours of religion, 3 hours of hygiene or 
human physiology, a year of laboratory science, and 18 hours 
of English, including freshman and advanced composition. 

4. Exemptions : Four or more entrance units of foreign 
language — may be two units in each of two languages — with 
one additional year of one of these in college, will satisfy the 
language requirement. 

5. The following outline of courses for degrees shows 
that, in any department, 36 hours are required for a major, 
24 hours for the first minor to be chosen in a second field, 
and 18 hours for a second minor to be chosen from a third 
field. 

Such a procedure should insure a broad general foundation 
regardless of the subject selected for a major.

Department of Languages 

Prof. Maturo Mrs. Rutledge Mrs. Rice 

Recognizing that language is the medium of expression, 
the courses of this department are planned for two groups 
of students. First, suitable work is organized for those 
who are primarily interested in a cultural education, and 
who realize that only through the language of another 
people can one fully understand and appreciate their thought 
and life. Second, plans are made to meet the practical needs 
of those other students who may desire to enter the pro- 
fessions, to do graduate work, or come into business contact 
with our foreign speaking neighbors.

Department of Social Sciences 

Dr. Wise Mrs. Rutledge 

History, Political Science, and Sociology are inseparably 
connected. History is largely the record of the social and 
political changes and conditions of man. The chief problems 
before man today, as in all the past, are economic and social. 
These make up the leading political questions. Therefore, 
every citizen to vote, talk or to act intelligently must know 
something of the great underlying principles of these subjects. 
This is the purpose of all the courses in this department.
