SINGING AND HARMONY CLASSES. 

The Elementary Singing Class numbers 54 members. The 
Advanced Singing Class and Beethoven Society number M 
members. The Harmony Class number 16 members. 

BEETHOVEN SOCIETY. 

The Beethoven Society of Knox < 'ollege was organized in 
January, 1879, for the purpose of promoting the thorough cul- 
ture of music in Knox College. Its membership when organized 
was fifty-two, which has since become seventy-four. Creditable 
progress has been made, which is manifest as well in an increased 
interest in music generally, as in greater skill in execution. Last 
year it presented to the public " Spring," a portion of Haydn's 
Oratorio of " The Seasons." This year Haydn's Oratorio of "The 
Creation" has been studied, and will be rendered towards the end 
of April. 

The Society Hall is the large room, formerly used as the 
chapel, on the main floor of the Seminary building. Meetings 
are held weekly on Thursday afternoon. 

The officers are elected at the first meeting of each College 
year, and at present are as follows : 

President, E. O. Holyoke. Treas'r, Miss Kate K. Fargo. 

Vice PresH, Miss Ella McBride. Rec. tietfy, G. F. Pierson.

GENERAL STATEMENT. 

K\ox College, at G-alesburg, Illinois, was founded in 1837, 
and fully organized as a College in 1841. It had its origin in 
a plan of Christian benevolence. Half the township of land, 
now known as Galesburg, was originally purchased as an endow- 
ment for the College, by a company formed by Rev. George W. 
Gale, at Whitesboro', New York. It is under the management 
of a Board of Trustees, representing various evangelical denom- 
inations. 

With a full staff of Professors and Instructors, and courses of 
study adapted to the wants of those who desire a higher educa- 
tion than ordinary schools afford, it is believed that the College 
has before it a career of great prosperity. While it will be the 
aim of the Faculty and Trustees to adapt the Institution to the 
educational conditions of the country, this will yet be done with 
due regard to the maintenance of a high standard of classical 
and scientific attainments. The course of instruction will be 
both thorough and complete. 



REGULATIONS AND COURSES OP INSTRUCTION IN 
KNOX COLLEGE. 



TERMS OF ADMISSION.

llTIUlT 8@©IE«I®®. 

The students of Knox College sustain two Literary Societies, 
devoted to the improvement of their members in debate ; in a 
knowledge of parliamentary law; and in writing, reading, and 
other literary work. The Societies are so managed and eon- 
ducted as to subserve these important ends and uses, in a very 
high degree ; and they are exceptionally free from the objection- 
able features which sometimes attach to such organizations. A 
view of the origin, equipment, and working-plans of each Soci- 
ety, is afforded in the subjoined sketches, furnished by the 
respective officers : 

THE ADELPHI. 

The Adelphi was organized in the Spring of 1846 ; and ob- 
tained a charter in May, 1847. Any student pursuing a regular 
course of study in Knox College is eligible to membership. 

The first public exhibition of the Adelphi was held June 3, 
1846, and various public meetings have been held each year since. 

The Society holds its Anniversary near the close of the Fall 
Term, an Open Meeting in the Summer Term, and on Monday 
evening of Commencement Week, an annual re-union of its 
Alumni. The regular meetings of the Society are held on 
Wednesday evenings of the College year, in the Society Hall. 
The exercises consist of debates, poems, essays, declamations, 
orations, etc. The Society's hall, situated in the west College 
building, is thirty feet wide by forty feet long, and is most pleas- 
antly and tastefully furnished. The Adelphi library, occupying 
a pleasant room on the second floor of the main College build- 
ing, contains 1,500 volumes of choice literature, which are free to 
the members of all departments. 

More than four hundred members have been connected with 
the Adelphi since its organization ; the present membership 
numbers fifty. 

The officers for the year 1879-80, are : 
President, A. W. Hued, '80. Bee. Sec' y, M. W. Pinckney,'81. 
Vice President, E. B. Linn, '80. Cor. Sec'y, J. Y. Ewaut, '81. 
Treasurer, G. W. Shupe, '80.

THE GNOTH \i'l II 



The Gnothautii Society was organized November I. L849, and 
soon after obtained a charter. Any student pursuing a regular 
course of study in Knox College is eligible to membership. 

The Society occupies a pleasant and commodious liall in the 
east College building. This hall is handsomely finished and fur- 
nished, and lighted with gas. 

The Library, containing about 1,200 volumes of standard and 
popular works, occupies room 14 in the main College building. 
The use of the books is free to all students. 

The Society celebrates its anniversary by a public exhibition 
near the close of the Fall Term. Various other public exercises 
occur during the year. A re-union of its Alumni and members 
is held Monday evening of each Commencement Week. 

A new feature of the Society is the "Colton Prize" lor excel- 
lence in debating. This was established September, 1876, by 
Gen. David D. Colton (recently deceased), who was a charter 
member of the Society. A gold medal, a silver cup, or one 
year's tuition in Knox College (value of each thirty dollars^, at 
the option of the winner, is awarded yearly to the successful 
competitor in a public contest. This is open only to members 
of the Society who are of the Sophomore and Freshman classes 
of Knox College. The competitors are appointed in January of 
each year, and the contest takes place during the first part of 
the Spring Term. The prize for 1879 was equally divided be- 
tween Thomas A. Taylor and Lynden Evans. 

The regular meetings of the Society, to which all its friends 
are cordially invited, are held on Wednesday evening through- 
out the school year. Among the exercises are debates, orations, 
essays, declamations, etc. 

The officers for the current year, are : 
H. A. Craig, President. Chas. W. Dunn, Treasure?'.

THE SOCIETY OF RELIGIOUS INQUIRY 

Holds meetings in the Seminary chapel on the first and third 
Friday evenings of each month. These meetings are devoted to 
prayer, the consideration of religious topics, and the reading of 
correspondence from similar societies in other colleges. The 
object of the Society is to promote the cause of Christ. The 
membership at present numbers fifty, and is open and free to the 
Christian students of all departments.

PUBLIC EXHIBITIONS. 

1. Each of the Literary Societies holds an exhibition on suc- 
cessive evenings, near the close of the Fall Term. 

2. The College Prize Orations are given on the last Tuesday 
evening of the Winter Term. 

3. The College Prize Declamations are given on Tuesday 
evening, before Commencement. 

4. Commencement, on the fourth Tuesday in June. 

RELIGIOUS WORSHIP. 

Students of all departments are expected to attend public 
worship twice on the Sabbath, at the church which they or their 
parents may select. 

The students of each of the three departments meet on Mon- 
day morning, at their respective chapels, for worship. On the 
other mornings in the week, the students of all the departments 
meet in the College chapel, where religious exercises are held; 
instruction being given by the President, or some member of the 
Faculty, upon religious subjects.

ABSENCE I'KO.M COLLEGE 



The portion of the year allotted to vacations is bo ample as to 
render it unnecessary for students to visit their friends during 
term time, except for urgent and unforeseen reasons. The absence 
of the student, even for a few days, occasions him much Greater 
injury than is commonly supposed. It is hoped that parents and 
guardians will concur with the Faculty in their opinion of the 
inexpediency of granting leave of absence in ordinary cases. 

RESIDENT GRAJH'ATKS. 

Graduates of the Institution, residing in town, are admitted to 
any course of lectures, or to the recitations in any special study 
in the regular curriculum. They are at liberty to take part in 
the recitations or not, at their option. 

COLLEGE GROUNDS. 

The College Grounds contain about seventeen acres. Between 
the College and Seminary is a public park of nine acres, well 
planted with forest trees. The surroundings of the buildings are 
thus rendered unusually beautiful and attractive. 



KNOX CO l'leg e. 33 



Til STn&WASITLFM, 



A building for gymnastic exercises and physical training has 
been erected on the College Campus. The building is large 
(36 by 72 feet, and 24 feet in height), substantial, well lighted, 
warmed and ventilated, and is in all respects admirably adapted 
to its intended uses. We think it an important addition, not 
only to the permanent property, but also to the educational facil- 
ities of the institution. It enables us to establish a regular 
department of Physical Education, which we deem of great im- 
portance. We earnestly desire that all our students may be 
sound in body as well as cultivated in mind and pure in morals ; 
that they may all go forth, not only trained in intellect, and 
strong in right principles, but also with vigorous physical health, 
for lack of which so many gifted and cultured young men and 
women have failed to accomplish in life that for which they were 
otherwise so well fitted. 

We do not expect any miraculous results from this new de- 
partment of physical education. But we do hope and expect 
that, under careful supervision and judicious management, it will 
prove a most valuable means of preserving and increasing the 
physical health and strength of our students ; and so far as it 
does this, it will also contribute to their cheerfulness and happi- 
ness, and hence to their interest and success in study. This is 
the law of our nature ; mental and physical health go together ; 
each re-acts upon the other. A robust and well-balanced intel- 
lect, in a weak and shattered body, is an impossibility. 

The Gymnasium is open to all students of the College, Acad- 
emy and Seminary, under such regulations as the Faculty may 
prescribe. The results thus far have fully equalled our expecta- 
tions. Nearly all the students exercise daily, with marked ben- 
efit to health.

The established charge for one study, is one-half the regu- 
lar rate of tuition. For more than one study, the full rates are 
charged. 

Payment for all dues is required in advance for each term. 
Every student, at his first recitation in each term, must exhibit 
the certificate of the Treasurer that he has complied with the 
rule in relation to the payment of bills. There can be no de- 
parture from this regulation in any case. But if any worthy 
student is really unable to pay in advance, he will call imme- 
diately on the President, state the case to him, and obtain his 
permission to the Treasurer to grant such indulgence as the case 
may seem to the President to require. On receiving such per- 
mission, the Treasurer will settle with the student in accordance 
therewith, and grant him the certificate necessary to admit him 
to recitation. 



KNOX COLLEGE. 35 



BOARD. 

Board, with room, may be obtained in private families at from 
$3.50 to $5.00 per week; without room, at from $3.00 to ,$4.00. 

Young men of both the College and the Academy are furnished 
with excellent board at the Seminary table for $2.00 per week. 
This arrangement has proved highly satisfactory, and will be con- 
tinued, so as to provide board at about its actual cost. In some 
cases young men board themselves, and reduce the cost to $1.25 
per week, or less. 

Application for board can be made to the Treasurer of the 
College, George Davis, Esq. 

Families wishing to receive students are requested to make 
known their terms at the Treasurer's office. All whose names 
are received on this list agree to inform the Faculty, promptly, of 
every known violation of the College laws by students boarding 
at their houses. 

Students who have the Christian ministry in view may receive 
aid from educational societies, if their circumstances require 
it, to the amount of $100 to $130 a year, on application to the 
President. 

Students desiring to work for their board, will find many 
opportunities for doing so in the private families of the city. 
Every young person of good health and habits, who is really 
determined to gain a liberal education, and who is willing to 
make the necessary effort and to practice the necessary self- 
denial and economy, will find sympathy and encouragement in 
Knox College. The necessary expense, including books and all 
else, except clothing, traveling, etc., of which no estimate can 
be made, ranges from $125 to $250 per annum, varying mainly 
according to the price paid for room and board.

Knox Seminary is designed to furnish a liberal course of in- 
struction for young ladies. The course of study occupies four 
years, and offers facilities for thorough mental discipline and 
liberal culture; it is planned with reference to the ordinary duties 
of intelligent, educated women, and to the special requirements 
of those who desire to teach. The College Courses, Classical and 
Scientific, are also open to young ladies, and superior advantages 
are offered for instruction in Music, Drawing and Painting. 

The young ladies have the benefit of instruction and lectures 
from the President and Professors of the College, the studies of 
the regular Seminary curriculum being under their charge. By 
this arrangement the young ladies enjoy precisely the same ad- 
vantages in instruction, and in the use of the library, apparatus, 
and cabinets of the College, as are provided for the young men. 
It is believed that the advantages offered to young ladies by this 
plan are such as can be secured only in Seminaries connected 
with a College, and under the supervision of its faculty of pro- 
fessional instructors. 

The importance of residence in the Seminary cannot be too 
strongly urged upon the attention of young ladies and their 
parents. The habits of living and study which prevail there are 
more regular than in private families, and are highly conducive 
both to health and literary progress. Attention is also specially 
called to the fact that the courses of study in Knox Seminary are 
continuous, and do not admit of omissions and irregularity of at- 
tendance without loss of class standing. 

TERMS OF ADMISSION. 

Candidates for admission are examined in Civil and Physical 
Geography, English Grammar, Higher Arithmetic, Elementary 
Algebra, History of the United States, Latin Grammar and 
Reader, and one book of Caesar's Commentaries.

building is very commodious. The rooms are neatly carpeted 
and furnished, lighted by gas, and heated by furnaces. 

Parents will direct as to calls, correspondence, and the church

The teachers hold occasional receptions Tor the pupils on Friday 
evenings, to which members and friends of the Institution are 
cordially invited. 

If requested, a report of each pupil's scholarship and deport- 
ment will sent to her parents at the close of each term. 

Each young lady will furnish her own towels, napkins and 
napkin ring, and a silver fork, one pair of sheets and pillow 
cases, and one comfortable. Each of these, and all articles of 
clothing, should be distinctly marked with the owner's lull name. 
It is also required that each pupil shall be provided with an 
umbrella, a water-proof cloak, and rubber shoes.

The young ladies of Knox Seminary sustain a Literary Soci- 
ety of marked excellence, the organization, objects and methods 
of which will be seen from the subjoined sketch, furnished by 
the officers of the Society. 

THE "L. M. I." 

This Society was organized November 20, 1801. Any young- 
lady pursuing a regular Seminary or College Course is eligible 
to membership. 

The Society is known outside of its limits as the "L. M. I.," 
and during the past year has numbered fifty-five members. 

The literary meetings are held every Wednesday afternoon 
during the College year. The exercises consist of debates, essays, 
recitations, poems, music, select readings, etc. 

The Society occupies a hall neatly and pleasantly furnished, 
on the south front of the second floor of the Seminary building. 

The anniversaries of the Society are observed by public exer- 
cises in the Seminary chapel. Open meetings are held at least 
once a year. 

The officers are elected semi-annually, and at present are as 
follows : 

Julia Ferris, President. Emma Goshen, Cor. Sec'y. 

Fannie Hammond, Vice PresH. Carrie Becker, Pec. Sec'y. 
Lottie Mileham, Treasurer. 



gn-ox Academy. 



The paramount educational need of th<- West, is a supply of 
well-organized and thoroughly-equipped Secondary Schools, or 
Academies, where our youth may !>'■ Boundly and completely 
fitted for our colleges, without the heavy < • .\ j n - n > « • and moral risk 
of sending- them abroad for thai purpose. So far as Knox Col- 
lege is concerned, this need is -fully mel by Knox Academy, an 
adjunct of the College, in which students are prepared for col- 
lege as thoroughly as in any similar institution in this country, 
East or West, and at less than one-third the expense of sending 
them abroad. The especial attention of those who have son- and 
daughters for whom they desire a liberal education, is invited to 
this statement. 

The Academy comprises two departments. English and Clas- 
sical. The former gives a full course of English studies, and 
affords special advantages to students who intend to become 
teachers. The latter is a Preparatory Department, devoted to 
the thorough preparation of students for the College and Young 
Ladies' Seminary. The course of study, for students intending 
to enter the Classical Course in the College, extends through 
three years ; that for young ladies intending to take the four 
years' Seminary Course, extends through one year. 

In order to enter the Classical Department of the Academy, 
students must pass an examination in the elementary English 
studies. 

The students, to some extent, enjoy the benefit of instruction 
by the College professors, in branches pertaining to their several 
departments. 

Arrangements have been made for full courses of instruction 
in Book-Keeping, by single and double entry; the practical use 
of the English language, including a thorough drill in Spelling ; 
and systematic training in Elocution. 

It is desired that young ladies from abroad, attending this 
department, should board in the Seminary building, and be under 
the supervision of its Principal.

LITERARY SOCIETIES. 

Two Literary Societies are sustained by the students of tin- 
Academy. Both of them are well managed, vigorous and useful. 
They are doing much to foster an interest in writing, speaking, 
debating and other literary and elocutionary work, the good 
effects of which are afterward seen in college. Sketches of the 
societies are appended : 

THE ZETETICI. 

This Society of Knox Academy was organized in the winter 
of 1864. A constitution was adopted March 1st of the same 
year. Any male student of Knox Academy is eligible to mem- 
bership, and may enjoy all the privileges of the Society. 

The anniversaries of this Society occur near the close of the 
Winter Term. 

Literary meetings are held every Tuesday evening during the 
College year. The exercises consist of debates, orations, essays, 
declamations, personal sketches, etc. 

The Zetetici hall, a pleasant and suitably-furnished room, is 
situated on the first floor of the east College building. 

Officers are elected at the last regular meeting of each term. 
At present they are as follows : 

A. C. Miller, President. R. C. Morse, Cor. Secy. 

J. L. Baker, Vice President. L. L. Smith, Treasurer. 

H. M. Gilbert, Bee. Sec'y. W. H. Whitney, Critic. 



KNOX COLLEGE. 47 



THE E. O. D. 



The E. O. D. Society of Knox Academy was organized in 
December, 1873, and a constitution was soon after adopted. 

The letters E. O. D., by which the Society is known and ad- 
dressed, are the initials of the words of a Greek phrase signifying 
"To Be, Not to Seem," which is the motto of the Society. 

Any male student of Knox Academy is eligible to membership. 

The E. O. D. Hall, a pleasant and commodious room, is situ- 
ated in the west College building. 

The regular meetings of the Society are held every Tues- 
day of the College year. The literary exercises consist of 
delates, orations, declamations, essays, select readings, extem- 
pore speeches, etc. 

The Society has lately organized a quartet club which is an 
honor to the Society, and which furnishes excellent music at all 
meetings. 

The Society celebrates its anniversary by an open meeting, 
held in the College Chapel, near the close of the Winter term. 

The officers are elected at the first regular meeting of each 
term, and at present are as follows : 

H. W. Houlding, President. A. Schwartz, Cor. Sec'y. 

G. E. Wickens, Vice President. F. D. Jones, Treasurer. 

Jacob McCreary, Pec. Sec'y. H. S. Sheldon, Critic. 

society prize for declamation. 

A prize in declamation has been established jointly by the 
Zetetici and the E. O. D. societies. The declaimers, four from 
each society, are chosen by their societies, under certain restric- 
tions. The contest takes place during the Spring term of each 
year. It is believed that this prize will prove beneficial to the 
societies, and will tend toward raising the standard of declama- 
tion in the Academy.

GENERAL STATEMENT. 

Knox College, at Galesburg, Illinois, was founded in 1837, 
and fully organized as a College in 1S41. It had its origin in a 
plan of Christian benevolence. Half the township of land, now 
known as Galesburg, was originally purchased as an endowment 
for the College, by a company formed by Rev. George W. Gale, at 
Whitesboro', New Fork. It is under the managemenl of a Board 
of Trustees, representing various evangelical denominations. 

With a full stall' of Professors and Instructors, and courses of 
study adapted to the wants of those who desire a higher educa- 
tion than ordinary schools afford, it is believed that the College 
has before it a career of great prosperity. While it will be the 
aim of the Faculty and Trustees to adapt the Institution to the 
educational conditions of the country, this will yet be done with 
due regard to the maintenance of a high standard of classical 
and scientific attainments. The course of instruction will be 
both thorough and complete.

All these libraries are accessible to students, both in the Collegi- 
ate and Preparatory Departments.

the leading reviews, magazines and newspapers, is free to all the 
students. 

The College collections in Natural History contain 3,000 Geo-

3,000 species, and 1,300 Botanical specimens; and are constantly 
receiving valuable additions.

liTERARY Societies, 



The students of Knox College sustain two Literary Societies, 
devoted to the improvement of their members in debate; in a 
knowledge of parliamentary law; and in writing, reading, and 
other literary work. The Societies are so managed and con- 
ducted as to subserve these important ends and uses, in a very 
high degree; and they are exceptionally free from the objection- 
able features which sometimes attach to such organizations 
view of the origin, equipment and working-plans of each Society, 
is afforded in the subjoined sketches, furnished by the respective 

officers. 

THE ADELPH1 

The Adelphi was organized in the Spring of 1846; and ob- 
tained a charter in May, 1847. Any student pursuing a regular 
course of study in Knox College is eligible to membership. 

The first public exhibition of the Adelphi was held June 3, 
1846, and various public meetings have been held each year since. 
The society holds its Anniversary near the close of the Fall 
Term, an Open Meeting in the Summer Term, and on Monday 
evening of Commencement Week, an Annual Re-union of its 
Alumni. The regular meetings of the Society are held on 
Wednesday evenings of the College year, in the Society Hall. 
The exercises consist of debates, poems, essays, declamations, 
orations, etc. The Society's Hall, situated in the west College 
building, is thirty feet wide by forty feet long, and is most pleas- 
antly and tastefully furnished. The Adelphi library, occupying 
a pleasant room on the second floor of the main College building, 
contains 1,500 volumes of choice literature, which are free to the 
members of all departments. During the current year about 
$120 has been expended in improving the furnishing of the Hall, 
and a number of valuable volumes have been added to the 
library. 

The method of preparing the programmes for the literary 
meetings, secures equal privileges to all the members. A Pro- 
gramme Committee of three is elected at the beginning of each 



KNOX COLLEGE. 29 

College Term, whose duty it is to prepare and report programmes 
of literary exercises two weeks in advance of the performance. 
Members are assigned positions upon the programmes in alpha- 
betical order, the Committee keeping a record of the work 
assigned to each member so that no one is given the same per- 
formance twice in succession, and all have the same opportunity 
for appearing upon the rostrum. 

More than four hundred members have been connected with 
the Adelphi since its* organization; the membership this year is 
about sixty. 

The officers for the year 1880-81, are: 

President, Jno. Y. Ewart, '81. Bee. Setfy, H T. Rainey, '83. 
Vice President, E. A. Ray, '81. Treasurer. J. B. Parkinson, '81. 
Cor. Sedy, G. E. Bellows, '82. Librarian, E. O. Holyoke, '81. 



THE GNOTHAUTII. 

The Gnothautii Society was organized November 1, 1849, and 
soon after obtained a charter. Any student pursuing a regular 
course of study in Knox College is eligible to membership. 

The Society occupies a pleasant and commodious hall in the 
cast College building. This hall is handsomely finished and fur- 
nished, and lighted with gas. 

The Library, containing about 1,200 volumes of standard and 
popular works, occupies a room in the main College building. 
The use of the books is free to all students. 

The Society celebrates its anniversary by a public exhibition 
near the close of the Fall Term. Various other public exercises 
occur during the year. A re-union of its Alumni and members 
is held Monday evening of each Commencement Week. 

An interesting feature of the Society is the "Colton Prize" for 
excellence in debating. This was established September, 1876, 
by the late Gen. David D. Colton, who was a charter member of 
the Society. A gold medal, a silver cup, or one year's tuition in 
Knox College (value of each thirty dollars), at the option of the

winner, is awarded pearly to the successful competitor in ;t pub- 
lic contest. This is open only to members of the Society who 
are of the Sophomore and Freshman classes of Knox Coll< 

The officers Tor the current year n i < • : 

Thomas Taylor, President. W. A. Edwards, Treasurer. 

J. B. Hill, Vice President. E. S. Care, Librarian. 

\\M. A.. Chambers, Cor. 8ec*y. C. T. Wyckoff, Rec. See'y. 



SfOl N». MKN S CHRISTIAN lSSO< I LTION. 

The Society of Religious [nquiry Ims bec< • the Young Men's 

Christian Association of Knox College. The change was effected 
by vote of the old society, November 1, 1880. Tin- association 
has already eighty members. 

Besides the work of individuals, it lias organized work through 
Membership, Missionary, and Correspondence Committees, with 
the Executive Committee, which is composed of the office]- of 
the Association. 

A devotional rpeeting is held Friday evenings, a Bible class 

Sundays, and a daily prayer meeting at 8 a. m. 

The Annual Address is delivered before the V. M. C. A. by an 
invited Speaker, Sunday evening of Commencement Week. 

Membership in an Evangelical Church constitutes eligibility to 
full membership in the Y. M. C. A. 

The officers are elected each term except the Corresponding 
Secretary, who holds office a year. The officers at the close of 
this year (1881) are: 

President, John Y. Ewart. Cor. See'y, Ed. S. Carr. 

Vice President, Carrie Hyde. Treasurer, R. Nellie Hayes. 
Rec. Secy, Jos. Gaylord. Librarian, Geo. F. Hunter.

"THE KNOX STUDENT." 

A need long felt by Knox College was met two years ago by 
the establishment of The Knox Student. This periodical is con- 
ducted especially for the benefit of the students, but the mana- 
gers also desire to make it a medium of communication for the 
graduates of the institution; and hence the co-operation of all 
the friends of the College is earnestly desired. Terms $1 per 
annum. Address, The Knox Student, Box 167, Galesburg, 111. 

Officers for the current year : 

Robert Mather, Editor-in-Chief. 
Will H. Whitney, Business Manager. 



PUBLIC EXHIBITIONS. 



1. Each of the Literary Societies holds an exhibition on suc- 
cessive evenings, near the close of the Fall Term. 

2. The College Prize Orations are given on, the last Tuesday 
evening of the Winter Term. 

3. The College Prize Declamations are given on Tuesday 
evening, before Commencement. 

4. Commencement, on the fourth Thursday in June. 



RELIGIOUS WORSHIP. 

Students of all departments are expected to attend public wor- 
ship twice on the Sabbath, at the church which they or their 
parents may select. 

The students of each of the three departments meet on Mon- 
day morning, at their respective chapels, for worship. On the 
other mornings in the week, the students of all the departments 
meet in the College chapel, where religious exercises are held; 
instruction beiug given by the President, or some member of the 
Faculty, upon religious subjects.

The portion of tin- year ; 1 1 1 * > 1 1 < - • i t<> vacations is bo ample ;i- to 
render it unnecessary for students bo visit their friends during 
terra time, except for urgent and unforeseen reasons. The absence 
of the student, even for ;i few days, occasions him much greater 
injury than is commonly supposed. It is hoped that parents and 
guardians will concur with the Faculty in their opinion of the in- 
expediency of granting Leave of absence in ordinary cases. 



RESIDENT GRADUATES. 



Graduates of the Institution, residing in town, are admitted to 
any course of lectures, or to the recitations in any special study 
in the regular curriculum. They are at liberty to take part in the 

recitations or not, at their option. 



COLLEGE GROUNDS. 



The College Grounds contain a I tout seventeen acres. Bet ween 

the College and the Seminary is a public park of nine acres, \\<-ll 
planted with forest trees. The surroundings of the buildings are 
thus rendered unusually beautiful and attractive. 



KNOX COLLEGE. 33 



TWM @¥lil|MI^M. 



A building for gymnastic exercises and physical training has 
been erected on the College Campus. The building is large 
(36 by 72 feet, and 24 feet in height), substantial, well lighted, 
warmed and ventilated, and is in all respects admirably adapted to 
its intended uses. We think it an important addition, not only 
to the permanent property, but also to the educational facilities 
of the institution. It enables us to establish a regular depart- 
ment of Physical Education, which we deem of great importance. 
We earnestly desire that all our students may be sound in body 
as well as cultivated in mind and pure in morals ; that they 
may all go forth, not only trained in intellect, and strong in right 
principles, but also with vigorous physical health, for lack of 
which so many gifted and cultured young men and women have 
failed to accomplish in life that for which they were otherwise so 
well fitted. 

We do not expect any miraculous results from this new de- 
partment of physical education. But we do hope and expect 
that, under careful supervision and judicious management, it will 
prove a most valuable means of preserving and increasing the 
physical health and strength of our students; and so far as it 
does this, it will also contribute to their cheerfulness and happi- 
ness, and hence to their interest and success in study. This is 
the law of our nature; mental and physical health go together; 
each re-acts upon the other. A robust and well-balanced intellect 
in a weak and shattered body, is an impossibility. 

The Gymnasium is open to all students of the College, Acad- 
emy and Seminary, under such regulations as the Faculty may 
prescribe. The results thus far have fully equaled our expecta- 
tions. Nearly all the students exercise daily, with marked ben- 
efit to health.

Expenses, in Knox College, 



The charges, payable to the College Treasury, are the follow- 
ing, viz : 

Tuition and Incidental Expenses, for Fall Term, 118.00 

" Winter Term, - 15.00 

" Spring Term, - L2.00 

Room Rent, in Dormitories, Fall Term, - 4.00 

" " " Winter Term, - 3.00 

Spring Term, 3.00 

The established charge for one study, is one-half the regu- 
lar rate of tuition. For more than one study, the full rates are 
charged. 

Payment for all dues is required in advance for each term. 
Every student, during the first week in each term, must exhibit 
the certificate of the Treasurer that he has complied with the 
rule in relation to the payment of bills. There can be no de- 
parture from this regulation in any case. But if any worthy 
student is really unable to pay in advance, he should call imme- 
diately on the President, state the case to him, and obtain his 
permission to the Treasurer to grant such indulgence as the case 
may seem to the President to require. On receiving such per- 
mision, the Treasurer will settle with the student in accordance 
therewith, and grant him the certificate necessary to admit him 
to recitation. 



KNOX COLLEGE. 35 



BOARD. 



Board, with room, may be obtained in private families at from 
$3.50 to $5.00 per week; without room, at from $3.00 to $4.00. 

Young men of both the College and the Academy are furnished 
with excellent board at the Seminary table for $2.00 per week. 
This arrangement has proved highly satisfactory, and will be con- 
tinued, so as to provide board at about its actual cost. In some 
cases young men board themselves, and reduce the cost to $1.25 
per week, or less. 

Application for board can be made to the Treasurer of the 
College, George Davis, Esq. 

Families wishing to receive students are requested to make 
known their terms at the Treasurer's office. All whose names 
are received on this list agree to inform the Faculty, promptly, of 
every known violation of the College laws by students boarding 
at their houses. 

Students who have the Christian ministry in view may receive 
aid from educational societies, if their circumstances require it, 
to the amount of $100 to $130 a year, on application to the 
President. 

Students desiring to work for their board, will find many op- 
portunities for doing so in the private families of the city. Every 
young person of good health and habits, who is really determined 
to gain a liberal education, and who is willing to make the neces- 
sary effort and to practice the necessary self-denial and economy, 
will find sympathy and encouragement in Knox College. The 
necessary expense, including books and all else, except clothing, 
traveling, etc., of which no estimate can be made, ranges from 
$125 to $250 per annum, varying mainly according to the price 
paid for room and board.

years, and offers facilities for thorough mental discipline and 
liberal culture; it is planned with reference to the ordinary duties 
of intelligent, educated women, and to the special requirements 
of those who desire to teach. The College Courses, Classical and 
Scientific, are also open to young ladies, and superior advantages 
are offered for instruction in Music, Drawing and Painting. 

The young ladies have the benefit of instruction and lectures 
from the President and Professors of the College, the studies of 
the regular Seminary curriculum being under their charge. By 
this arrangement the young ladies enjoy precisely the same ad- 
vantages in instruction, and in the use of the library, apparatus, 
and cabinets of the College, as are provided for the young men. 
It is believed that the advantages offered to young ladies by this 
plan are such as can be secured only in Seminaries connected 
with a College, and under the supervision of its faculty of pro- 
fessional instructors. 

The importance of residence in the Seminary cannot be too 
strongly urged upon the attention of young ladies and their 
parents. The habits of living and study which prevail there are 
more regular than in private families, and are highly conducive 
both to health and literary progress. Attention is also especially 
called to the fact that the courses of study in Knox Seminary are 
continuous, and do not admit of omissions and irregularity of at- 
tendance without loss of class standing. 

TERMS OF ADMISSION. 

Candidates for admission are examined in Civil and Physical 
Geography, English Grammar, Higher Arithmetic, Elementary 
Algebra, History of the United States, Latin Grammar and 
Reader, and one book of Caesar's Commentaries.

LITERARY SOCIETY. 



The young ladies of Knox Seminary sustain a Literary Society 
of marked excellence, the organization, objects and methods of 
which will be seen from the subjoined sketch, furnished by the 
officers of the Society. 

THE "L. M. I. 1 ' 

This Society was organized November 20, 1861. Any young 
lady pursuing a regular Seminary or College Course is eligible to 
membership. 

The Society is known outside of its limits as the " L. M. I.," 
and during the past year has numbered fifty-five members. 

The literary meetings are held every Wednesday afternoon 
during the College year. The exercises consist of debates, essays, 
recitations, poems, music, select readings, etc. 

The Society occupies a hall neatly and pleasantly furnished, 
on the south front of the second floor of the Seminary building. 

The anniversaries of the Society are observed by public exer- 
cises. Open meetings are held at least once a year. 

The officers are elected semi-annually, and at present are as 
follows: 

Nellie R. Martin, President. Cora F. Stone, Cor. Sec'y. 

Carrie Hoisington, Vice PresH. Kate Belden, Pec. Sec'y. 

Mary G. McKechnie, Treasurer. 



Knox Academy. 



The paramouni educational Deed of the West, is a supply of 
well-organized and thoroughly-equipped Secondary Schools, or 
Academies, where our youth may be soundly and completely 
fitted for our colleges, without the heavy expense and moral risk 
of sending them abroad for that purpose. So far as Knox Col- 
lege is concerned, this need is fully met by Knox Academy, an 
adjunct of the College, in which students are prepared for col- 
lege as thoroughly as in any similar institution in this country. 
East or West, and at less than one-third the expense of sending 
them abroad. The special attention of those who have sons and 
daughters for whom they desire a liberal education, is invited to 
this statement. 

The Academy comprises two departments, English and Clas- 
sical. The former gives a full course of English studies, and 
affords special advantages to students who intend to become 
teachers. The latter is a Preparatory Department, devoted to 
the thorough preparation of students for the College and Young 
Ladies' Seminary. The course of study, for students intending 
to enter the Classical Course in the College, extends through 
three years ; that for young ladies intending to take the four 
years' Seminary Course, extends through one year. 

In order to enter the Classical Department of the Academy, 
students must pass an examination in the elementary English 
studies. 

The students, to some extent, enjoy the benefit of instruction 
by the College professors, in branches pertaining to their several 
departments. 

Arrangements have been made for full courses of instruction 
in Book-Keeping, by single and double entry; the practical use 
of the English language, including a thorough drill in Spelling ; 
and systematic training in Elocution. Facilities are also afforded 
for courses of instruction in Penmanship and in Short Hand. 

It is desired that young ladies from abroad, attending this 
department, should board in the Seminary building, and be under 
the supervision of its Principal.

LITERARY SOCIETIES. 

Two Literary Societies are sustained by the students of the 
Academy. Both of them are well managed, vigorous and useful. 
They are doing much to foster an interest in writing, speaking, 
debating and other literary and elocutionary work, the good 
effects of which are afterward seen in college. Sketches of the 
societies are appended : 

ZETETICI. 

This Society of Knox Academy was organized in the winter 
of 1864. A constitution was adopted March 1st of the same 
year. Any male student of Knox Academy is eligible to mem- 
bership, and may enjoy all the privileges of the Society. 

The anniversaries of this Society occur near the close of the 
Winter Term. 

Literary meetings are held every Tuesday evening during the 
College year. The exercises consist of debates, orations, essays, 
declamations, personal sketches, etc. 

The Zetetici hall, a pleasant and suitably furnished room, is 
situated on the first floor of the east College building 

Officers are elected at the last regular meeting of each term. 
At present they are as follows: 

H. M. Gilbert, President. Charles Craig, Cor. Sec^y. 

O. A. Lucas, Vice Preset. L. C. Roberts, Treasurer. 

John B. Brown, Pec. Sec'y. George L. Price, Critic. 



KNOX COLLEGE. 47 

THE E. O. D. 

The E. O. D. Society of Knox Academy was organized in 
December, 1873, and a constitution was soon after adopted. 

The letters E. O. D., by which the Society is known and ad- 
dressed, are the initials of the words of a Greek phrase signifying 
"To Be, Not to Seem," which is the motto of the society. 

Any male student of Knox Academy is eligible to membership. 

The E. O. D. Hall, a pleasant and commodious room, is situ- 
ated in the west College building. 

The regular meetings of the Society are held every Tues- 
day of the College year. The literary exercises consist of de- 
bates, orations, declamations, essays, select readings, extempore 
speeches, etc. 

The Society has lately organized a quartette club which is an 
honor to the Society, and which furnishes excellent music at all 
meetings. 

The Society celebrates its anniversary by an open meeting, 
held in the College Chapel, near the close of the Winter term. 

The officers are elected at the first regular meeting of each 
term, and at present are as follows: 

A. L. Sponsler, President. R. E. McElroy, Cor. Sec'y. 

R. H. Pepper, Vice Preset. C. C. George, Treasurer. 

J. F. Burger, Pec. Sec'y. G. E. Wickens, Critic. 

society prize for declamation. 
A prize in declamation has been established jointly by the 
Zetetici and the E. O. D. societies. The declaimers, four from 
each society, are chosen by their societies, under certain restric- 
tions. The contest takes place during the Spring term of each 
year. It is believed that this prize will prove beneficial to the 
societies, and will tend toward raising the standard of declama- 
tion in the Academy.

General Statement. 



Knox College, at Galesburg, Illinois, was founded in 1837, 
and fully organized as a College in 1841. It had its origin in a 
plan of Christian benevolence. Half the township of land, now 
known as Galesburg, was originally purchased as an endowment 
for the College, by a company formed by Rev. Geo. W. Gale, at 
Whitesboro', N. Y. It is under the management of a Board of 
Trustees, representing various evangelical denominations. 

With a full staff of Professors and Instructors, and courses of 
study adapted to the wants of those who desire a higher educa- 
tion than ordinary schools afford, it is believed that the College 
has before it a career of great prosperity. While it will be the 
aim of the Faculty and Trustees to adapt the Institution to the 
educational conditions of the country, this will yet be done with 
due regard to the maintenance of a high standard of classical and 
scientific attainments. The course . of instruction will be both 
thorough and complete.

KNOX COLLEGE. 29 

have completed the prescribed Classical Course of Study, and 
passed satisfactory examinations therein; and the degree of 
Bachelor of Science upon all who have completed the Scientific 
Course, and passed similar examinations. 

Graduates of three years' standing- may receive the degree of 
Master of Arts, or Master of Sciences, on application to the 
President. 

The fee for Diplomas, in all cases is five dollars. 

LIBE ARIES AND CABINETS. 

The College Library contains 4,000 volumes. The two Col- 
lege societies — the Adelphi and the Gnothautii — possess libraries 
numbering over 2,000 volumes, making in all over 6,600 volumes. 
All these libraries are accessible to students, both in the Collegi- 
ate and Preparatory departments. 

A Reading-Room, in connection with the Library, containing 
the leading reviews, magazines and newspapers, is free to all the 
students. 

The College collections in Natural History contain 3,000 Geo- 
logical, 1,000 Mineralogical, 10,000 Zoological, embracing nearly 
3,000 species, and 1,300 Botanical specimens; and are constantly 
receiving valuable additions. 

BOTANICAL COLLECTION. 

Dr. Mead, a graduate of Yale College, settled at Augusta, 
Hancock Co., 111., in the year 1833. He was distinguished for 
his love of all good learning, both scientific and classical, and for 
the accuracy of his scholarship. After coming to Illinois, he at 
once began to study the Flora of the new country and to form a 
Herbarium. His work soon commanded the attention of botanists 
in New England and in Europe; he entered upon a system of 
exchanges, and his collection increased steadily until his decease. 
He left a rich botanical collection, containing ten thousand 
species of plants from various parts of the world. Knox College, 
by the liberality of her friends, has secured that exceedingly 
valuable collection. It is believed that no other Institution 
in the West possesses an equally rich and extensive botanical 
collection. 



Literary Societies. 



The students of Knox College sustain two Literary Societies, 
devoted to the improvement of their members in debate; in a 
knowledge of parliamentary law; and in writing, reading, and 
other literary work. The Societies are so managed and conducted 
as to subserve these important ends and uses, in a very high 
degree; and they are exceptionally free from the objectionable 
features which sometimes attach to such organizations. A \i.-w 
of the origin, equipment and working-plans <>( each Society, is 
afforded in the subjoined sketches, furnished by the respective 
officers. 

AltKI.I'lll 

The Adelphi was organized in the Spring of 184C>; and ob- 
tained a charter in May, 1847. Any student pursuing a regular 
course of study in Knox College is eligible to membership. 

The first public exhibition of the Adelphi was held June 3d, 
1840, and various public meetings have been held each year since. 
The Society holds its Anniversary near the close of the Fall 
Term, an Open Meeting in the Summer Term, and on Monday 
evening of Commencement Week, an Annual Reunion of its 
Alumni. The regular meetings of the Society are held on each 
Wednesday evening of the College year, in the Society Hall. 
The exercises consist of debates, poems, essays, declamations, 
orations, etc. The Society's Hall, situated in the west College 
building, is thirty feet wide by forty feet long, and is most pleas- 
antly and tastefully furnished. The Adelphi library, occupying 
a pleasant room on the second floor of the main College building, 
contains 1,500 volumes of choice literature, which are constantly 
being added to, and which are free to the members of all depart- 
ments. • 

The method of preparing the programmes for the literary 
meetings, secures equal privileges to all the members. Members 
are assigned positions upon the programmes in alphabetical order, 
a record being kept of the work assigned to each member, so 



KNOX COLLEGE. ^>1 

that no one is given the same performance twice in succession, 
and all have the same opportunity for appearing upon the rostrum. 

Some five hundred members have been connected with the 
Adelphi since its organization; the membership thisyearis about 
forty-five. 

The officers for the year 1882-3, are: 

President^ Robt. C. Morse, '84. Eec, See'y, V. E. Bender, '85. 

Vice President, II. AT. Gilbert, '85. Treasurer, ('has. McMillan, '84. 
Cor. See'y, G. B. Dickson, '84. Librarian, F. II. Gaines, '84. 



GNOTHAUTII. 

The Gnothautii Society was organized November 1, 1849, and 
soon after obtained a charter. Any male student pursuing a 
course of study in Knox College is eligible to membership. 

The regular meetings of the Society are held Wednesday eve- 
ning of each week in Gnothautii Hall, the programme consisting 
of debates, orations, declamations, essays, etc. The hall is situ- 
ated in the east College building, and is handsomely finished and 
and furnished, and lighted with gas. Here are held the Annual 
Reunions of the Alumni and members, Monday evening of Com- 
mencement Week. 

The Library, containing about 1,200 volumes of standard and 
popular works, occupies a room in the main College building. 
The use of the books is free to all students. 

An interesting feature of the society is the "Colton Prize" for 
excellence in debating. This was established in September, 1870, 
by the late Gen. David D. Colton, who was a charter member of 
the Society. A gold medal, a silver cup, or one year's tuition in 
Knox College (value of each thirty dollars), at the option of the 
winner, is awarded yearly to the successful competitor in a pub- 
lic contest. This is open only to members of the Society who 
are of the Sophomore and Freshman classes of Knox College. 
In 1882 the prize was awarded to Mr. E. E. Ellinwood, of the 
Freshman class. 

In the fall of 1882 steps were taken by the Society looking 
toward the creation of an endowment fund, the object being the 
erection, in the not distant future, of a more commodious hall, to 
meet the growing needs of the Society. The plan has met with

such time as i! shall be needed. Meanwhile suliscriptions from

Vol Ni; MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION 

The Young Men's Christian Association <>!' Knox Col leg 
one branch of an organization which has Bpread over the civilized 
world, the main objecl <>f which is Christian labor among young 
men. The College Y. M.(\ A. admits both young ladies and 
gentlemen as members. 

Besides individual work, it has organized work through Mem- 
bership, Missionary, and Correspondence Committees, with the 
Executive 1 Committee, which is composed of the officers of the 
Association. 

A devotional meeting is held every Friday evening, embracing, 
once a month, a missionary topic; a Bible Class Sunday morn- 
ings, and two daily prayer meetings, one for ladies and one for 
gentlemen, at 8:10 a. m. 

An Annual Address is delivered before the Association by an 
invited speaker, Sunday evening of Commencement Week. 

Membership in an Evangelical Church constitutes eligibility to 
full membership in the Y. M. C. A. Students of good moral char- 
acter are admitted to associate membership. 

The present membership is composed mostly of active christian 
workers, and numbers about one hundred and fifteen. All new 
students are earnestly requested to unite with the Association. 

The officers are elected at the end of each term with the excep- 
tion of the Corresponding Secretary, who holds office for the 
year. The officers at present are : 

President, W. H. Whitney, Cor. Sec, C. W. Lay, 

Vice Pres., Marion Richey, Treds., R. J. Gasket, 

Ree. Sec., D. M. Buchanan.

2. The College Prize Orations are given on the last Tuesday 
evening of the Winter Term. 

3. The College Prize Declamations are given on Tuesday 
evening, before Commencement. 

4. Commencement, on fourth Thursday in June. 

RELIGIOUS WORSHIP. 

Students of all departments are expected to attend public wor- 
ship twice on the Sabbath, at the church which they or their 
parents may select. 

The students of all the departments meet in the College 
chapel, every morning, where religious exercises are held ; in- 
struction being given by the President, or some member of the 
Faculty, upon religious subjects. 

ABSENCE FROM COLLEGE. 

t 

The portion of the year allotted to vacations is so ample as to 
render it unnecessary for students to visit their friends during 
term time, except for urgent and unforeseen reasons. The absence 
of the student, even for a few days, occasions him much greater 
injury than is commonly supposed. It is hoped that parents and 
guardians will concur with the Faculty in their opinion of the 
inexpediency of granting leave of absence in ordinary cases. 

• RESIDENT GRADUATES. 

Graduates of the institution residing in town, are admitted to 
any course of lectures, or to the recitations in any special study 
in the regular curriculum. They are at liberty to take part in 
the recitations or not, at their option. 

COLLEGE GROUNDS. 

The College Grounds contain about seventeen acres. Between 
the College and Seminary is a public park of nine acres, well 
planted with forest trees. The surroundings of the buildings are 
thus rendered unusually beautiful and attractive. 



34 KNOI COLLEGE 



©fee Gymnasium. 



A building for gymnastic exercises and physical training baa 
been erected on the College Campus. The building is large 
(36 by 71 feet, and "M feet in height), substantial, well lighted, 
warmed and ventilated, and is in all respects admirably adapted 

to its intended uses. We think it is an important addition, 1 not 
only to the permanent property, but also to tin- educational facil- 
ities of the institution. It enables us to establish a regular 
department of Physical Education, which we deem of great im- 
portance. We earnestly desire that all our students may be 
sound in body as well as cultivated in mind and pure in morals; 
that they may all u - <> forth, not only trained in intellect, and Btrong 
in right principles, but also with vigorous physical health, for lack 
of which so many gifted and cultured young men and women 
have failed to accomplish in life that for which they were other- 
wise so well fitted. 

We do not expect any miraculous results from this new de- 
partment of physical education. But we do hope and expect that, 
under careful supervision and judicious management, it will prove 
a most valuable means of preserving and increasing the physical 
health and strength of our students; and so far as it does this, it 
will also contribute to their cheerfulness andhappiness, and hence 
to their interest and success in study. This is the law 7 of our 
nature; mental and physical health go together; each reacts upon 
the other. A robust and well balanced intellect in a weak and 
shattered body, is an impossibility. 

The Gymnasium is open to all students of the College, Acad- 
emy and Seminary, under such regulations as the Faculty ma} T 
prescribe. The results thus far have fully equaled our expecta- 
tions. Nearly all the students exercise daily, with marked ben- 
efit to health.

Expenses iij l^ox College. 



The charges, payable to the College Treasury, are the follow- 
ing, viz: 

Tuition and Incidental Expenses, for Fall Term, - - $18.00 

Winter Term, - 15.00 

Spring Term, 12,00 

Room Rent, in Dormitories, Fall Term, - - - 4.00

charged. 

Payment of all dues is required in advance for each term. 
Every student, during the first week in each term, must exhibit 
the certificate of the Treasurer that he has complied with the 
rule in relation to the payment of bills. There can be no de- 
parture from this regulation in any case. But if any student 
is really unable to pay in advance, he should call immediately 
on the President, state the case to him, and obtain his per- 
mission to the Treasurer to grant such indulgence as the case 
may require. On reciving such permision, the Treasurer will 
settle with the student in accordance therewith, and grant him 
the certificate necessary to admit him to recitation.

Board. 



Board, with room, may be obtained in private families al from 
$3.50 to #5.00 per week; without room, at from $3.00 to 14.00. 

Young men of both the College and the Academy are furnished 
with excellent board at the Seminary table at $2.50 per week. 
In some cases young men board themselves, and reduce the cost 
to $1.25 per week, or less. 

Application for board can be made to the Treasurer of the 
College, George Davis, Esq. 

Families wishing to receive students are requested to make 
known their terms at the Treasurer's office. All whose names 
are received on this list agree to inform the Faculty, promptly, of 
eve^ known violation of the College laws by students boarding 
at their houses. 

Students who have the Christian ministry in view may receive 
aid from educational societies, if their circumstances require it, 
to the amount of $100 to $130 a year, on application to the 
President. 

Students desiring to work for their board, will find many op- 
portunities for doins so in the private families of the city. Every 
young person of good health and habits, who is really determined 
to gain a liberal education, and who is willing to make the neces- 
sary effort and to practice the necessary self-denial and economy, 
will find sympathy and encouragement in Knox College. The 
necessary expense, including books and all else, except clothing, 
traveling, etc., of which no estimate can be made, ranges from 
$125 to $250 per annum, varying mainly according to the price 
paid for room and board.

I^ijox Senjiijary. 



Knox Seminary is designed to furnish ;i Liberal course of in- 
struction to young ladies. The course of study occupies four 
years, and oilers facilities for thorough mental discipline and 
liberal culture; it is planned with reference to the ordinary duties 
of intelligent, educated women, and to the special requirements 
of those who desire to teach. The ( 'ollege I !ourses, ( llassical and 
Scientific, are also open to young ladies, and superior advantages 
are offered for instruction in Music, Drawing and Painting. 

The. young ladies have the benefit of instruction and Lectures 
from the President and Professors of the College, the studies of 
the regular Seminary curriculum being under their charge. By 
this arrangement the young ladies enjoy precisely the same ad- 
vantages in instruction, and in the use of the Library, apparatus, 
and cabinets of the College, as are provided for the young men. 
It is believed that the advantages offered to young ladies by this 
plan are such as can be secured only in Seminaries connected 
with a College, and under the supervision of its Faculty of pro- 
fessional instructors. 

The importance of residence in the Seminary cannot be too 
strongly urged upon- the attention of young ladies and their 
parents. The habits of living and study which prevail there are 
more regular than in private families, and are highly conducive 
both to health and literary progress. Attention is also especially 
called to the fact that the courses of study in Knox Seminary are 
continuous, and do not admit of omissions and irregularity of 
attendance without loss of class standing. 

TERMS OF ADMISSION. 

Candidates for admission are examined in Civil and Physical 
Geography, English Grammar, and Composition (Reed and Kel- 
logg's Higher Lessons in English, or its equivalent), Higher 
Arithmetic, Elementary Algebra, History of the United States, 
Latin Grammar and Reader, and one book of Caesars Commen- 
taries.

FAMILY ARRANGEMENTS.

All young- ladies from abroad are required to board at the 
Seminary, unless, for special reasons, other arrangements are 
made with the Principal. 

The board and the accommodations furnished in Knox Semi- 
nary are equal to those usually found in the best of such institu- 
tions. The building is very commodious. The rooms are neatly 
carpeted and furnished, lighted by gas, and heated by furnaces. 

Parents will direct as to calls, correspondence, and the church 
to be attended, by written communications addressed to the 
Principal. 

Calls upon young ladies, by friends who are not members of 
the Institution, should be made, as far as practicable, during 
recreation hours, on Friday evenings and Saturday afternoons. 
The teachers hold occasional receptions for the pupils, on Friday 
evenings, to which members and friends of the Institution are 
cordially invited. 



KNOX COLLEGE. 43 

If requested, a report of each pupil's scholarship and deport- 
ment will be sent to her parents at the close of each term. 

Each young lady will furnish her own towels, napkins and 
napkin ring, and a silver fork, one pair of sheets and pillow 
cases, and one comfortable. Each of these and all articles of 
clothing, should be distinctly marked with the owner's full name. 
It is also required that each pupil shall be provided with an 
umbrella, a water-proof cloak, and rubber shoes.

erary Society of marked excellence, the organization, objects and 
methods of which will be seen from the subjoined sketch, fur- 
nished by the officers of the Society. 



II KNOX COLLEGE. 



THE I. M l 



This Society was organized November 20, 1861. Any young 
lady pursuing ;i regular Seminary or College Course, or prepar- 
ing for the Classical Course, is eligible to membership. 

The society is known outside of its limits as the "L. M. L" 
and during the past year has numbered fifty members. 

The literary meetings are held every Wednesday afternoon 
during the College year. The exercises consist of debates, essays, 

recitations, poems, music, select readings, etc. 

The Society, at present, occupies the Seraiuary Chapel. 

The anniversaries of the Society are observed by public exer- 
cises. Open meetings are held at least one- a year. 

The officers are elected semi-annually, and at present are as 
follows: 

President, Ajbbie Avki>. '88. Cor. 8ec'y, Minmi. Smith, '85 

Vice Prist, Hattik Wilcox, '84. Bee. 8e&y, Bessie Johnstoh

IJrjox ^Icadeniy. 



The paramount educational need of the West, is a supply of 
well- organized and thoroughly-equipped Secondary Schools, or 
Academies, where our youth may be soundly and completely 
fitted for our colleges, without the heavy expense and moral risk 
of sending them abroad for that purpose. So far as Knox Col- 
lege is concerned, this need is fully met by Knox Academy, an 
adjunct of the College, in which students are prepared for col- 
lege as thoroughly as in any similar institution in this country, 
East or West, and at less than one-third the expense of sending 
them abroad. The special attention of those who have sons or 
daughters for whom they desire a liberal education, is invited to 
this statement. 

The Academy comprises two departments, English and Clas- 
sical. The former gives a full course of English studies, and 
affords special advantages to students who intend to become 
teachers. The- latter is a Preparatory Department, devoted to 
the thorough preparation of students for the College and Young 
Ladies' Seminary. The course of study, for students intending 
to enter the Classical Course in the College, extends through 
three years; that for young ladies intending to take the four 
years' Seminary Course, extends through one year. 

In order to enter the Classical Department of the Academy, 
students must pass an examination in the elementary English 
studies. 

The students, to some extent, enjoy the benefit of instruction 
by the College professors, in branches pertaining to their several 
departments. 

Arrangements have been made for full courses of instruction 
in Book-Keeping, by single and double entry; the practical use 
of the English language, including a thorough drill in Spelling; 
and systematic training in Elocution. Facilities are also afforded 
for courses of instruction in Penmanship and in Short Hand. 



1 1 1 KNOX COLLEGE. 

It is desired that young ladies from abroad, attending this de- 
partment, should board in the Seminary building, and be under 

the supervision of its Principal. 

Special attention is called to the advantages afforded by the 
Commercial Department. Students can receive instruction in 
Book-keeping and Penmanship while pursuing studies in the I '"I 
lege or Academy. A new room on the ground floor of the east 
College building — large, well lighted and, in every respect, coin 
modious — lias been set apart for instruction in these branches. 
No student, need leave Knox College destitute of a general and 
practical knowledge of Book-keeping and Writing.

LITERARY SOCIETIES. 

Two Literary Societies are sustained by the students of the 
Academy. Both of them are well managed, vigorous and useful. 
They are doing much to foster an interest in writing, speaking, 
debating, and other literary and elocutionary work, the good 
effects of which are afterward seen in college. Sketches of the 
societies are appended : 

ZETETICI. 

This Society of Knox Academy was organized in the Winter 
of 1804. A constitution was adopted March 1st of the same 
year. Any male student of Knox Academy is eligible to mem- 
bership, and may enjoy all the privileges of the Society. 

The anniversary of the Society occurs during the Spring Term. 

Literary meetings are held every Tuesday evening during the 
College year. The exercises consist of debates, orations, essays, 
declamations, personal sketches, etc. 



48 KNOX COLLEGE. 

The Zetetici Hall, a pleasanl and suitably-furnished room, is 
situated on the first floor of tin- east College building. 

Officers are elected al the last regular meeting of each teem. 
At present they are ;is follows: 

Geo. B. Sucher, President. Will N. \\'y< muf. Cor 

Wm. E. Hurlbut, Vice Pres't. Glenn II Whiting, TreanLtei 

Geo. II. Craig, Bee. See. Harry a. Stephens, Critic 

nil-; "E. o. J).'" 

The E. O. I). Society of Knox Academy was organized in 
I December, 1 8*3 ->. 

The letters E. O. I)., by which tin- society is known and ad- 
dressed, are the English representatives of the initials of ;i ( rreek 
phrase signifying "To Be, Not t<» Seem," which is the motto of 
the Society. 

Any male student of Knox Academy is eligible to membership. 

The E. 0. I). Hall, a pleasant and properly- furnished room, is 
situated in the west College building. 

The regular meetings of the Society are held every Tuesday 
evening of the College year. The literary exercises consist of 
debates, orations, declamations, essays, select reading, original 
stories, etc. 

The Society celebrates its anniversary by an open meeting, 
near the close of the Winter term. 

The officers are elected at the first regular meeting of each 
term, and at present are as follows: 

Thomas M. Rowlett, President. Robert L. Young. Cor. Sec'y. 

William H. Brown, Vice First. Frank E. Jeffery, Treasurer 

Clarence E. Comstock, Bee. Sec. Robert J. Caskey, Critic 

SOCIETY PRIZE FOR DECLAMATION. 

A prize in declamation has been established jointly by the 
Zetetici and the E. O. D. societies. The declaimers, four from 
each society, are chosen by their societies, under certain restric- 
tions. The contest takes place during the Spring term of each 
year. It is believed that this prize will prove beneficial to the 
societies, and will tend toward raising the standard of declama- 
tion in the Academy.

CIRCULAR. 



To the Trustees, Alumni and Friends of K?iox College: 

We wish, as officers of the Alumni Association of Knox Col- 
lege, to call your attention to a few facts, which are drawn from 
or suggested by the enclosed Annual and Triennial Catalogue. 

It will be borne in mind that Knox College has now enjoyed 
the administration of Dr. Bateman eight years. Under that 
administration the number of graduates has steadily increased. 
No other four years show as many graduates as the years 1879, 
1880, 1881 and 1882. 

The number of students likewise has steadily increased from 
1875 to the present time, and is now greater, both in the aggre- 
gate of all departments and in the regular College classes, than 
ever before since the institution was established. The present 
Freshman class numbers fifty-four, and the indications are that 
the entering class next Fall will be still larger. Over one-third 
(thirty-five) of all the counties in Illinois, and seventeen other 
States and Territories, are now represented by students in Knox 
College. 

To the older Alumni, especially, the growth of the college will 
be apparent from the present catalogue, showing as it does, among 
other tokens of progress, thorough instruction in French, marked 
prominence given to English Literature, rare advantages in 



Elocution and Oratory, incentives to excellence in English Com- 
position, a department of Physical Education, aided by ;i 
Gymnasium, and an actual attendance during the present ye 
one hundred and fifty in College, and Tour hundred and forty-four 
in all depart ments. 

These facts show clearly enough another, thai Dr. Bateman has 
in a remarkable degree secured the confidence, the respect and 

the affection of tin- students. 

Still another fad is, thai for many years, the senior member of 
the Faculty has been doing double work, filling the chair of Latin, 
as well as of Natural Science. This has been rendered necessary 
by the inadequate endowment of the ( College. 

Moreover, the increase in tin; number of students involves more 
work, a larger number of classes in the Academy, and a division 

of classes in the College. Such an increase requires an increase 
in the teaching force. 

Let us once more call your attention to the fact, that it is now 
eight years since Dr. Bateman was called to assume the direction 
of Knox College, and to the further fact that he has so conserved 
its manifold interests, as to secure our present prosperity, without 
encroaching upon the capital of the College, and without causing 
any deficit. 

Ought we not to recognize .and endorse the wise management 
of what we have, and no longer by means so inadequate, handi- 
cap a lofty wish to do far more than is now possible in the cause 
of Christian Education ? 

Ought we not to mafke some provision for a continued increase 
in the number of students? 



Ought we not to show our appreciation of the ungrudging faith- 
fulness of those, who, through long years of work well done and 
of patient waiting have given themselves to our Institution ? As 
things are now, to stand still is to retrograde. 

Other institutions, with certainly no greater claims upon the 
friends of Christian Culture, are receiving large endowments, and 
we applaud beneficence so wise and seemly. Will not the friends 
of Knox do something for her, and do it at once ? 

Let us not wait for one another, dear friends, but, while the 
thought is in our hearts, do what we can, however little it may 
seem, for the great interests here involved. 

We especially request all the Alumni to attend the Annual 
Reunion to be held on June 27th. We feel justified in saying 
that the time is not far distant when the Alumni will have a voice 
in the selection of the Trustees of the College ; and the matter 
will be brought to their attention in a definite form at the annual 
meeting this year. This is an object greatly to be desired, and 
we trust every Alumnus will make special eifort to attend the 
coming Commencement exercises.

Knox College 



GENERAL STATEMENT 

Knox College, al Galesburg, Illinois, was founded in 1837, 
and fully organized as a College in 1841. It had its origin in a 
plan of Christian benevolence. Half the township of land, now 
known ;is Galesburg, was originally purchased a^ an endowment 
for the College, by a company formed by Rev. Geo. W. Gale, *t 
Whitesboro', N. Y. It is under the management of ;i Board of 
Trustees, representing various evangelical denominations. 

With a full staff of Professors and Instructors, and courses of 
study adapted to the wants of thos<- who desire a higher educa- 
tion than ordinary schools afford, it is believed that the College 
has before it a career of great prosperity. While it will be the 
aim of the Faculty and Trustees to adapt the Institution to the 
educational conditions of the country, this will yet be done with 
due regard to the maintenance of a high standard of classical and 
scientific attainments. The course of instruction will be both 
thorough and complete.

All these libraries are accessible to students, both in the Collegi- 
ate and Preparatory departments. 

A Reading-Room, in connection with the Library, containing

28 KNOX COLL KG R 



BOTANICAL COLLECTION 



Dr. Mead, ;i graduate of Yale College, settled at Augusta, 
Hancock Co., 111., in the year ls:>:$. !!<• was distinguished for 
his love of all good Learning, both scientific and classical, and for 
the accuracy of his scholarship. After coming to Illinois, he at 
once began to study the Flora of the new country and to form a 
Herbarium. His work soon commanded the attention of botanists 
in New England and in Europe; he entered upon a system of 
exchanges, and his collection increased steadily until his decease. 
lie left a rich botanical collection, containing ten thousand 
species of plants from various parts of the world. Knox College, 
by the liberality of her friends, has secured that exceedingly 
valuable collection, and it is now being classified and arranged 
for use, by Prof. Hurd. It is believed that no other Institution 
in the West possesses an equally rich and extensive botanical 
collection. 



liTERARY Societies. 



The students of Knox College sustain two Literary Societies, 
devoted to the improvement of their members in debate; in a 
knowledge of parliamentary law; and in writing, reading, and 
other literary work. The Societies are so managed and conducted 
as to subserve these important ends and uses, in a very high 
degree; and they are exceptionally free from the objectionable 
features which sometimes attach to such organizations. A view 
of the origin, equipment and working-plans of each Society, is 
afforded in the subjoined sketches, furnished by the respective 
officers. 

ADELrni. 

The Adelphi was organized in the Spring of 184(3; and ob- 
tained a charter in May, 1847. Any student pursuing a regular 
course of study in Knox College is eligible to membership. 

The first public exhibition of the Adelphi was held June 3d, 
1846, and various public meetings have been held each year since. 



KNOX COLLEGE. 29 

The Society holds its Anniversary near the close of the Fall 
Term, an Open Meeting in the Summer Term, and on Monday 
evening of Commencement Week, an Annual Reunion of its 
Alumni. The regular meetings of the Society are held on 
Wednesday evening of the College year, in the Society Hall. 
The exercises consist of debates, poems, essays, declamations, 
orations, etc. The Society's Hall, situated in the west College 
building, is thirty feet wide by forty feet long, and is most pleas- 
antly and tastefully furnished. The Adelphi library, occupying 
a pleasant room on the second iloor of the main College building, 
contains 1,500 volumes of choice literature, which are constantly 
being added to, and which are free to the members of all depart- 
ments. 

The method of preparing the programmes for the literary 
meetings, secures equal privileges to all the members. Members 
are assigned positions upon the programmes in alphabetical order, 
a record being kept of the work assigned to each member, so 
that no one is given the same performance twice in succession, 
and all have the same opportunity for appearing upon the rostrum. 

Some five hundred members have been connected with the 
Adelphi since its organization; the membership this year is about 
sixty. 

The officers for the year 1881-2, are: 
President, Robert Mather, '82. Rec. ISec'y, John Wylie, '82. 

Vice President, N. F. Anderson, '82. Treasurer, Lawrence Kyan, '84. 
Cor. Sec'y, Charles L. Johnson, '84. Librarian, John L. Baker, '84. 



GNOTHAUTII. 

The Guothautii Society was organized November 1, 1849, and 
soon after obtained a charter. Any student pursuing a regular 
course of study in Knox College is eligible to membership. 

The Society occupies a pleasant and commodious hall in the 
east College building. This hall is handsomely finished and fur- 
nished, and lighted with gas. 

The Library, containing about 1,200 volumes of standard and 
popular works, occupies a room in the main College building. 
The use of the books is free to all students. 

The Society celebrates it Anniversary by a public exhibition 



30 KNox COLLEGE 

near the close of the Fall Term. Various other public exercises 
occur during the year. A re union of its Alumni and members 
is held Monday evening of each ( 'oinmencemenl Week. 

An interesting feature of the society is the "Col ton Prize" lor 
excellence in debating. This wus established September, L876, 
by the late Gen. David 1). Colton, who was a charter member of 

the Society. A gold i lal, a silver cup, or one year's tuition in 

Knox College (value of each thirty dollars), at the option of the 
winner, is awarded yearly to the successful competitoi in a pub- 
lic contest. This is open only <<» members of the Society who 
are of the Sophomore and Freshman classes of Knox College. 
in 1881 the prize was awarded t<, Ah. .J. M. Mason, of tire Sopho- 
more class. 

The officers for the current year are: 
President, Wm. II. Chambers. Rec. >"'//, F II Bukt, 

Via President, Ed. S. Carr. Treasurer, Graut Newell. 

Cor See'y, Walter A. Edwards Librarian, Fred W. Si-><»> 



YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION 

The Young Men's Christian Association of Knox College is 
one branch of an organization which has spread over the civilized 
world, the main object of which is Christian labor among young 
men. The College Y. M. C. A. admits both ladies and gentlemen 

as members. 

Besides the work of individuals, it has organized work through 
Membership, Missionary, and Correspondence Committees, with 
the Executive Committee, which is composed of the oificers of 
the Association. 

A devotional meeting is held Friday evenings, embracing, once 
a month, a missionary topic; a Bible Class Sundays, arrd two 
daily prayer meetings, one for gentlemen and one for ladies, at 

8 A. M. 

An Annual Address is delivered before the Association by an 
invited speaker, Sunday evening of Commencement Week. 

Membership in an Evangelical Church constitutes eligibility to 
full membership in the Y. M. C. A. Any student of good moral 
character is admitted as an associate member. 

The interest manifested and the good work accomplished dm-

Faculty, upon religious subjects. 

ABSENCE PROM COLLEGE 

The portion of the year allotted to vacations is so ample as to 
lender it unnecessary for students to \isii their friends during 
term time, except Tor urgent and unforeseen reasons. The absence 
of the student, even tor m few days, occasions him much greater 
injury than is commonly supposed. It is hoped thai parents and 
guardians will concur with the Faculty in their opinion of the 
inexpediency of granting leave of absence in ordinary cases. 

RESIDENT Gfi kDUATES 

Graduates of the institution residing in town, are admitted to 
any course of lectures, or to the recitations in any special study 

in the regular curriculum. They are at liberty to take part in 
tin 1 recitations or not, at their option. 

COLLEGE GROUNDS. 

The College Grounds contain about seventeen acres. Between 

the College and Seminary is a public park of nine acres, well 
planted with forest trees. The surroundings of the buildings are 
thus rendered unusually beautiful and attractive. 



KNOX COLLEGE. 33 



Tmm Simm^iim. 



A building for gymnastic exercises and physical training has 
been erected on the College Campus. The building is large 
(30 by 72 feet, and 24 feet in height), substantial, well lighted, 
warmed and ventilated, and is in all respects admirably adapted 
to its intended uses. We think it is an important addition, not 
only to the permanent property, but also to the educational facil- 
ities of the institution. It enables us to establish a regular 
department of Physical Education, which we deem of great im- 
portance. We earnestly desire that, all our students may be 
sound in body as well as cultivated in | mind and pure in morals; 
that they may all go forth, not only trained in intellect, and strong 
in right principles, but also with vigorous physical health, for lack 
of which so many gifted and cultured young men and women 
have failed to accomplish in life that for which they were other- 
wise so well fitted. 

We do not expect any miraculous results from this new de- 
partment of physical education. But we do hope and expect that, 
under careful supervision and judicious management, it will prove 
a most valuable means of preserving and increasing the physical 
health and strength of our students; and so far as it does this, it 
will also contribute to their cheerfulness and happiness, and hence 
to their interest and success in study. This is the law of our 
nature; mental and physical health go together; each reacts upon 
the other. A robust and well-balanced intellect in a weak and 
shattered body, is an impossibility. 

The Gymnasium is open to ail students of the College, Acad- 
emy and Seminary, under such regulations as the Faculty may 
prescribe. The results thus far have fully equaled our expecta- 
tions. Nearly all the students exercise daily, with marked ben- 
efit to health.

Expenses in Kin:ox Couege. 



The charges, payable to the College Treasury, are the follow- 
ing, viz: 

Tuition and Incidental Expenses, lor Fall Term, - - 118.00 

Winter Term, - 15.00 

Spring Term, 12.00 

Room Rent, in Dormitories, Fall Term, - - 4.00 

" " " Winter Term, - 3.00

The established charge for one study, is one-half the regular

charged. 

Payment of all dues is required in advance for each term. 
Every student, during the first week in each term, must exhibit 
the certificate of the Treasurer that he has complied with the 
rule in relation to the payment of bills. There can be no de- 
parture from this regulation in any case. But if any student 
is really unable to pay in advance, he should call immediately 
on the President, state the case to him, and obtain his per- 
mission to the Treasurer to grant such' indulgence as the case 
may require. On reciving such permision, the Treasurer will 
settle with the student in accordance therewith, and grant him 
the certificate necessary to admit him to recitation.

BOAKD. 



Board, with room, may be obtained in private families at from 
$3.50 to $5.00 per week; without room, at from $3.00 to $4.00. 

Young men of both the College and the Academy are furnished 
with excellent board at the Seminary table at $2.50 per week. 
In some cases young men board themselves, and reduce the cost 
to $1.25 per week, or less. 

Application for board can be made to the Treasurer of the 
College, George Davis, Esq. 

Families wishing to receive students are requested to make 
known their terms at the Treasurer's office. All whose names 
are received on this list agree to inform the Faculty, promptly of 
every known violation of the College laws by students boarding 
at their houses. 

Students who have the Christian ministry in view may receive 
aid from educational societies, if their circumstances require it, 
to the amount of $100 to $130 a year, on application to the 
President. 

Students desiring to work for their board, will find many op- 
portunities for doing so in the private families of the city. Every 
young person of good health and habits, who is really determined 
to gain a liberal education, and who is willing to make the neces- 
sary effort and to practice the necessary self-denial and economy, 
will find sympathy and encouragement in Knox College. The 
necessary expense, including books and all else, except clothing, 
traveling, etc., of which no estimate can be made, ranges from 
$125 to $250 per annum, varying mainly according to the price 
paid for room and board.

Knox Seminary is designed to furnish a liberal course of in- 
struction to young ladies. The course of study occupies four 
years, and offers facilities for thorough mental discipline and 
liberal culture; it is planned with reference to the ordinary duties 
of intelligent, educated women, and to the special requirements 
of those who desire to teach. The College Courses, Classical and 
Scientific, are also open to you ng ladies, and superior advantages 
are offered for instruction in Mus ic, Drawing and Painting. 

The young ladies have the benefit of instruction and lectures 
from the President and Professors of the College, the studies of 
the regular Seminary curriculum being under their charge. By 
this arrangement the young ladies enjoy precisely the same ad- 
vantages in instruction, and in the use of the library, apparatus, 
and cabinets of the College, as are provided for the young men. 
It is believed that the advantages offered to young ladies by this 
plan are such as can be secured only in Seminaries connected 
with a College, and under the supervision of its Faculty of pro- 
fessional instructors. 

The importance of residence in the Seminary cannot be too 
strongly urged upon the attention of young ladies and their 
parents. The habits of living and study which prevail there are 
more regular than in private families, and are highly conducive 
both to health and literary progress. Attention is also especially 
called to the fact that the courses of study in Knox Seminary are 
continuous, and do not admit of omissions and irregularity of at- 
tendance without loss of class standing. 

TERMS OF ADMISSION. 

Candidates for admission are examined in Civil and Physical 
Geography, English Grammar, Higher Arithmetic, Elementary 
Algebra, History of the United States, Latin Grammar and 
Reader, and one book of Caesar's Commentaries.

FAMILY ARRANGEMENTS. 

Ample and pleasant accommodations for board, furnished as 
nearly as possible at the actual cost, are provided in the Ladies' 
Seminary, for young ladies of both the Seminary and the Acad- 
emy. All are under the supervision of the Principal. 

All young ladies from abroad are required to board at the 
Seminary, unless, for special reasons, other arrangements are 
made with the Principal. 

The board and the accommodations furnished in Knox Semi- 
nary are equal to those usually found in the best of such institu- 
tions. The building is very commodious. The rooms are neatly 
carpeted and furnished, lighted by gas, and heated by furnaces. 

Parents will direct as to calls, correspondence, and the church 
to be attended, by written communications addressed to the 
Principal. 

Calls upon young ladies, by friends who are not members of 
the Institution, should be made, as far as practicable, during 
recreation hours, on Friday evenings and Saturday afternoons. 



12 KNOX COLL BO B. 

The teachers hold occasional receptions for the pupils, on Friday 
ovenin^s, to which members and friends of the Institution are 
cordially invited. 

If requested, a report, of each pupil's scholarship and deport- 
ment will be sent to her parents at the dose- of each term. 

Each young lady will furnish her own towels, napkins and 
napkin ring, and a silver fork, one pair of sheets and pillow 
cases, and one comfortable. Each of these and all articles of 
clothing, should be distinctly marked with the owner's lull name 
It, is also required that each pupil shall he provided with an 
umbrella, a. water-proof cloak, and rubber shoes.

LITERARY SOCIETY. 



The young ladies of Knox Seminary sustain a Literary Society 
of marked excellence, the organization, objects and methods of 
which will be seen from the subjoined sketch, furnished by the 
officers of the Society. 



THE "L. M. I. 



This Society was organized November 20, 1861. Any young 
lady pursuing a regular Seminary or College Course is eligible 
to membership. 

The society is known outside of its limits as the "L. M. I." 
and during the past year has numbered fifty members. 

The literary meetings are held every Wednesday afternoon 
during the College year. The exercises consist of debates, essays, 
recitations, poems, music, select readings, etc. 

The Society occupies a Hall neatly and pleasantly furnished, 
on the south front of the second floor of the Seminary building. 

During the current year the Society has raised over #200, 
which will be expended in refitting the Hall. 

The anniversaries of the Society are observed by public exer- 
cises. Open meetings are held at least once a year. 

The officers are elected semi-annually, and at present are as 
follows: 

Kate Belden, '82, President. Maggie S. McChesney, '84, Cor. Sec'y. 
Abbie Ayers, '83, Vice President. Nettie M. Lay, '84, Rec. Sec'y. 
Mary A. Hyde, '84, Treasurer. 
Ella C. Gill, '82, and Cora F. Stone, '82, Critics. 



S.S'o 



Knox Academy, 



The paramount educational need of the West, is a supply of 
well-organized and thoroughly equipped Secondary Schools, or 

Academics, where our youth may be soundly and completely 
fitted for our colleges, without the heavy expense and moral risk 
of Bending them abroad for thai purpose. So far as Knox Col- 
lege is concerned, this need is fully met by Knox Academy, an 
adjunct of the College, in which students are prepared for col- 
lege as thoroughly as in any similar institution in t his country, 
East or West, and at less than one-third the expense of sending 
them abroad. The special attention of those who have sons or 
daughters for whom they desire ;i liberal education, is invited to 
this statement. 

The Academy comprises two departments, English and Clas- 
sical. The former gives a full course of English studies, and 
affords special advantages to students who intend to become 
teachers. The tatter is a Preparatory Department, devoted to 
the thorough preparation of students for the College and Foung 
Ladies' Seminary. The course of study, for students intending 
to enter the Classical Course in the College, extends through 
three years; that for young ladies intending to take the four 
years' Seminary Course, extends through one year. 

In order to enter the Classical Department of the Academy, 
students must pass an examination in the elementary English 
studies. 

The students, to some extent, enjoy the benefit of instruction 
by the College professors, in branches pertaining to their several 
departments. 

Arrangements have been made for full courses of instruction 
in Book-Keeping, by single and double entry; the practical use 
of the English language, including a thorough drill in Spelling; 
and systematic training in Elocution. Facilities are also afforded 
for courses of instruction in Penmanship and in Short Hand. 

It is desired that young ladies from abroad, attending this de- 
partment, should board Jn the Seminary building, and be under 
the supervision of its Principal.

LITERARY SOCIETIES. 
Two Literary Societies are sustained by the students of the 
Academy. Both of them are well managed, vigorous and useful. 
They are doing much to foster an interest in writing, speaking, 
debating, and other literary and elocutionary work, the good 
effects of which are afterward seen in college. Sketches of the 
societies are appended : 

ZETETICI. 

This Society of Knox Academy was organized in the Winter 
of 1804. A constitution was adopted March 1st of the same 
year. Any male student of Knox Academy is eligible to mem- 
bership, and may enjoy all the privileges of the Society. 

The anniversaries of the Society occur near the close of the 
Winter Term. 

Literary meetings are held every Tuesday evening during the 
College year. The exercises consist of debates, orations, essays, 
declamations, personal sketches, etc. 

The Zetetici Hall, a pleasant and suitably furnished room, is 
situated on the first floor of the east College building. 



KNOX COLLEGE. 47 

Officers are elected at the last regular meeting- of each term. 
At present they are as follows: 

George L. Price, Preside tit. Edward Caldwell, Cor. Setfy. 

Chester M. Clark, Vice President. Andrew Harrington, Treasurer. 
George 13. Suciier, Rec. Sec'y, Edwin N. Williams, Critic. 

THE "E. O. D." 

The E. O. D. Society of Knox Academy was organized in 
December, 1873. 

The letters E. O. I)., by which the society is known and ad- 
dressed, are the English representatives of the initials of a Greek 
phrase signifying u To Be, Not to Seem," which is the motto of 
the Society. 

Any male student of Knox Academy is eligible to membership. 

The E. O. D. Hall, a pleasant and commodious room, is situ- 
ated in the west College building. 

The regular meetings of the Society are held every Tuesday 
evening of the College year. The literary exercises consist of 
debates, orations, declamations, essays, select readings, extempore 
speeches, etc. 

The Society celebrates its anniversary by an open meeting, 
near the close of the Winter term. 

The officers are elected at the first regular meeting of each 
term, and at present are as follows: 

James W. Tupper, President. Charles W. Martin, Cor. Sec'y. 

GEORgE O. Siiumway, Vice President. Wm. R. Houston, Treasurer. 
Clarence E. Comstock, Rec. Sec'y. Jay B. Seakles, Critic. 

SOCIETY PRIZE FOR DECLAMATION. 

A prize in declamation has been established jointly by the 
Zetetici and the E. O. D. societies. The declaimcrs, four from 
each society, are chosen by their societies, under certain restric- 
tions. The contest takes place during the Spring term of each 
year. It is believed that this prize will prove beneficial to the 
societies, and will tend toward raising the standard of declama- 
tion in the Academy.
