The Baptist Church, progressive and well established in this section of our country, builded wiser than it knew, when, in the days when the Republic was young, it founded in the Capital city a theological school for the education of Christian Ministers in the faith of that Church. The efforts so well directed in that early day have matured into the present renowned Columbian University. In the year 1817, Rev. Luther Rice, a returned missionary from India, solicited subscriptions for the establishment of the pro- posed school, and in 1819 a tract of land containing 465 acres lying on the heights north of the city and bounded by the present Fourteenth and Fifteenth streets, and extending from near the foot of " The Hill 'l to about Columbia road, was purchased for 37000. Many persons of prominence contributed to the fund, among them John Quincy Adams, William H. Crawford, and john C. Calhoun, at that time members of President Monroe's Cabinet, and thirty-two Members of Congress. A charter was granted by Congress in February, 1821, creating " The Columbian College in the District of Columbia,', for the pur- pose of educating youth in H languages, liberal arts, sciences and literature," with power to confer all degrees " usually granted and conferred in collegesf' The iirst meeting of the Board of Trustees was held March 5, 1821. The only departments instituted at that time were the Theological and Classical-the former to begin in September of that year 5 the latter, in january ofthe year following- II although on june 30, 1821, the Preparatory School Was contem- plated. The first President was Dr. Staughton, a native of England and an eminent pulpit orator. A prospectus of the college was issued june 27, 1821, and referred to the institution as one of " National locality, considera- tion, and benelit, founded on the most liberal principles." It contained, among others, a Warm endorsement by President Monroe. A college building, the construction of which was commenced in 1820, and costing about g35,000, was completed in 1822. Agents of the college were sent to England and other parts of Europe, and after visiting the principal seats of learning, returned with many valuable suggestions as to the best methods of higher education. Among the foreign contributors to the funds of the college were the then Chancellor of the Exchecquer Cthe Right Honorable Nicholas Vansittart, Lord Bexleyj, the Bishop of Durham Qthe venerable and evangelical Dr. Shute Barringtonb, Alexander Baring Qafterward Lord Ashburton, Who with Daniel Webste1', negotiated the Ash- burton Treaty of I842D, Thomas Babbington Cuncle of Lord Macauley, and from whom he was namedj, Dr. Adam Clarke Qthe eminent Methodist divine and commentatorj, Williani Wilberforce, CphilanthropistD, and other persons of distinction in church and state. The Medical School was projected November 15th, 1821, and a few days later it was decided that a Law School should be estab- lished " at no distant day." The first commencement was held December 15, 1824, and was a notable event in the history of the college. The President of the United States, with several members of his cabinet, distinguished members of Congress, including Henry Clay, then Speaker of the House of Representatives, and General Lafayette, then visiting this country, were present. Although auspiciously inaugurated, all was not smooth sailing for the new enterprise, for about this time there arose serious dif- ferences of opinion among the trustees as to the relavite importance I2 of the departments, and as a result the Theological School was dis- continued. Then came financial diihculties, which were more serious, and in 1827, the faculty resigned in a body. In the Spring of 1828, the college reopened its doors, and its progress, sometimes slow, was steady from that time until interrupted by the Civil War of 1861, at which period the institution was free from debt, sub- stantially endowed, and the student body larger than at any previous time. But in common with other institutions the college felt the harmful effects of war. Exercises were suspended in some depart- ments and the college buildings performed good service as a hospital for sick and wounded soldiers of the Union army. College work was resumed in 1865, and from that time the progress of the institution has been rapid. By an act of Congress of March 3, 1873, it was provided that the corporate title ofthe institution should be " THE CGLUMBIAN UNIVERSITY." In 1884 the present university building, corner of Fifteenth and H streets, was occupied, the trustees having decided in 1879 to remove from the suburbs into the heart of Washington. The late W. W. Corcoran was the largest contributor to the building and endowment funds of the university, his contributions of money and realty aggregating nearly f200,000. john Withers, of Virginia, contributed 57o,ooo, and President john Quincy Adams, a part of j,5E18,ooo. Columbian University ranks high in the list of educational institutions of this country. While ably directed, and having a faculty of unusual distinction, proper consideration for its superior location must be had. That Washington is destined as an educa- tional centre is manifest from the progress of a single decade. The city having many kindred societies, has become the meeting place for many of the prominent historical, philosophical and scientific societies of the United States. Theimmense libraries, the labora- tories and the museums belonging to the Government-all open to the students-help to make Columbian great. I3 Rev. Benaiah L. Whitman, D. D., elected June 17, 1895, to succeed the late Dr. James C. Welliiig, was inaugurated as Presi- dent ofthe University, November 15, 1895. Columbian is signally blessed in the selection of one possessing such a high degree of culture and intellectual development. The prosperity and standing of the University are matters very near to his heart, and under his Wise guidance we shall see an unexampled advancement on the part of Columbian. At present, the University comprises the following ten departments: The Columbian College, the Corcoran Scientific School, the Summer School, the University Extension, the Grad- uate School, the Law School, the Medical School, the Dental School, the Columbian Academy and the Veterinary School. It has been decided to close the Academyi at the end of the present term, in view ot the fact that the University has reached a point of development which makes Work of a preparatory grade no longer desirable. A School oi Comparative jurisprudence has been estab- lished in accordance with resolutions adopted in june, 1892, and the introductory Work will commence during the next term. The officers of instruction number 154, all eminent in their specialties. The number of students enrolled during the year is IOI3. The lgw Selyool. The Columbian University Law School was organized February 3, 1826. Hon. XVillia1n Cranch, Chief justice of the Circuit Court of the United States, and Hon. VVi1liam T. Carroll, Clerk of the Supreme Court of the United States, were the Hrst professors. The school was discontinued on account of the embarrassment of 1827, but was re established 1865, it being the oldest law school in Wash- ington, even if the year 1865 be considered the date of founding. 14 From 1865 to 12484 the sessions of tl1e Law School were held in the " Columbian Law Building " on Fifth street, opposite the City Hall. The Law School has four classes: A junior and Senior Under- graduate Department, a Graduate Class in Practice, and a class in Patent Law and Patent Law Practice. The university was the first to create a Post-graduate Course in law and to confer the degree of Master of Laws. In October, 1895, the course in Patent Law was inaugurated. Upon completion of the course, the degree of Bachelor of Patent Law is conferred. No other institution confers this degree. Columbian University Law School is fortunate. Being located at the seat of government of the United States, it is enabled to select its professors from the Bench of the Supreme Court, as Well as from the local United States Courts. The largest law library in the United States is that of the Supreme Court, and this library is open to the free use of the students of the Law School. Besides this, the University has a large law library. By reason of its loca- tion, an exceptional opportunity is afforded students for the examin- ation of methods ofjudicial procedure in the various courts, includ- ing the Court of Claims and the Supreme Court. The administration of the laws may be studied in the various Executive Departments. The alumni of the Law School are to be found in every State of the Union, and many of them have nlled positions of honor and trust in both State and National administrations, besides achieving distinction at the bar. O T5 The Qlass of '97, The members of the class consider it desirable to carry with them from the University some memento-something less fugitive than mere recollection-which in the future will call to mind the pleasant associations and friendships of the last two years. The purpose of this publication therefore, is to preserve such matters relative to the history of theclass and those who constitute it as may be of interest generally. 6l7e junior Year, 1895-6. The class entered Columbian University October 3, 1895, with great enthusiasm, judging from the greeting given the Faculty. The class enrolled one hundred and thirtyeseven members, repre- senting thirty-three States including the District of Columbia. With a new View to organization, a meeting was held November 4, with W. M. Smith, Ohio, as temporary chairman, and G. I. Hesselman, Ill., as temporary secretary. Other meetings were held November 13, and December 14, at Which last meeting a permanent organization was effected, and the following gentlemen were elected officers for the year: President, J. T. Hendrick, Tenn. 3 Vice Presi- dent, H. C. Sanford, Wis. 3 Secretary, G. I. Hesselman, Ill. 3 Treasurer, W. S. Stamper, Va., Executive Committee, Benjamin Martin, jr., S. C., Chairman, C. A. johnson, D. C. g W. E. Sullivan, Idahog C. C. Wells, Ill., W. F. VVoolard, 111.5 A. F. Specht, Pa. 5 Preston Boisseau, Va. The decision ofthe class in january, 1896, to have a banquet provoked much oratory as to whether liquors should be excluded, but after considerable contention about preliminary questions, the motion to exclude carried without opposition. The banquet was 16 held April 17, at the Riggs House, and was well attended. In an important particular it involved a departure from the usual custom which excludes from participation all but members of the class, and an invitation was extended to the Faculty. Honored by the dig- nified and gracious presence of our beloved President, Dr. Whitman, Mr. justice Harlan, Hon. W. A. Maury, Hon. Benjamin Butter- worth, and Secretary Martin, and enthused by their kindly and appropriate words, together with an elaborate mevzzz, and the best of fellowship prevailing, the affair was one to be long remembered. President Hendrick acted as toastmaster, and the ease and ability with which he presided assured success from the very irst word of welcome to the guests. The various toasts were responded to as follows: "Our Profession," I. M. Spellman, Tex., "A Hung jury-Eleven Stubborn Men,', G. R. Linkins, D. C. 3 " The Uni- versity," H. C. Sanford, Wis.g " Alpha and Omega-Junior and Chief Justice," Preston Boisseau, Va. 3 " Class of '97," Benjamin Martin, Ir., S. C., "An Honest Lawyerf, J. E. Jenks, Minn.g " Our Athletes," H. I. Brown, N. H. 3 " The Machine Politician," W. M. Smith, Ohio, " Youthful Ambition," I L. Cousar, Ark., "Lawyer vs. Liar," M. L. Alden, Kan., "The Ladies," Frank Keiper, Ind. Not to be lost sight of is the extemporaneous but entertaining response of Mr. Snodgrass, Pa., of the class, to hearty calls of that gentleman's name. Mr. I. M. Fisher, Va., president of the Senior Class C962 was also a guest. Gbe Senior Yqar, 1896-7. Of the one hundred and thirty-seven members of the class during the junior year, seventy-four returned with the opening of the present term, on September 30, 1896. To this number are to be added' twenty-eight which were received from various sources, making the enrollment of the present Senior Law Class of Columbian University one hundred and two. The large number of missing Juniors is attributed by some to the fact that the Faculty deemed I7 ' it expedient as well as wise to prescribe an examination for all of the classes at the end of each year. As one reason for the adoption of this rule, Prof. Cox stated that " two years was too long a time to wait before finding out how much some young men did not know." And the class of ,97 was the first to be subjected to the operation of the new rule. At a time during the last Summer when humanity in general was striving to keep cool, and several weeks before the commencement of the present term, there were visible some symptoms of a feverish desire for early class organization. The situation got warm im- mediately, and soon after opening day a call was issued for a meet- ing of the class, to be held on October go. At this meeting Messrs. I. M. Spellman, of Texas, and F. C. Croxton, of Illinois, were placed in nomination for President. On the irst ballot the vote stood: Spellman, 405 Croxton, 393 M. L. Alden, of Kansas, 1. Mr. Spellman was elected on the second ballot, receiving 40 votes to 34 received by Mr. Croxton. Another meeting was held November 13, and the list of oliicers was completed by electing S. C. Ford, D. C., vice-president, W. M. Smith, O., secretaryg F. M. Benjamin, O., treasurer, and as members of the Executive Com- mittee the following gentlemen: I. W. Latimer, W. Va., after- ward elected chairman of the committee, I. W. Bevans, D. C., M. L. Alden, Kan. 3 William Mehn, La. 5 O. H. W. Talbot, Md. 3 J. W. Steward, N. I., and Rudolph Forster, Va. At a meeting of the class held December 4, it was voted to have a class history, and the present volume is the outcome of that determination. The class immediately got into a wrangle over some preliminary matters, and an adjournment was had to December I 1. At this meeting it was proposed that the class elect a historian and an assistant, but objection on constitutional grounds was urged against this procedure, which objection was quickly disposed of by a motion empowering the Executive Committee with full control of all matters relating to the class history, including the selection of the historian and his assistant. 18 William F. Woolard, of Illinois, was elected historian, and Howell Bartle, of the District of Columbia, assistant. The latter?- however, declined to serve. Q On April 6 the class had a meeting and decided to have another banquet, to be held soon after the Hnal examinations. R. H. Riddleberger, Va., by a vote of the class, was elected toastmaster, and Henry Leonard, Pa., and I. H. DeVVitt, Tenn., were appointed to co-operate with Mr. Riddleberger in the selection of the speakers for that occasion. Glye Saw Selyool Debating SoQiQty. In the Debating Society the class took a prominent part. The representatives of the class on the board of officers during the junior year were: First Term-Treasurer, I. L. Cousar, Ark. 5 Executive Committee, J. M. Spellman, Tex. 5 R. H. Riddleberger, Va. 5 Second Term-Vice President, R. I-I. Riddleberger, Va. g Sec- retary, XV. M. Smith. Ohio, Executive Committee, E. S. Frith, F. B. Goodheart, Tenn. In the six public debates held during the year, the following gentlemen were selected to represent the class : December 14, 1895, I. M. Spellman, Tex. 3 january 25, 1896, Frank Keiper, Ind.5 February 22, J. L. Cousar, Ark., and I. L. Thomas, Jr., Mo. 5 March 14, W. L. English, Ill., and Benjamin Martin, Ir., S. C. 5 April 4, M. L. Alden, Kan., and VV. S. Stamper, Va. 5 April 25, A. M. Fulk, Ark., and S. C. Ford, D. C. In these debates the honors were declared to belong to Messrs. Keiper, Thomas, Martin, Alden and Ford, and Messrs. Thomas and Martin were chosen by ballot to represent the class in the Annual Prize Debate which took place june 6. Mr. Martin was awarded second prize, the first having been given to a member of the class of '96. During the Senior year the class was represented as follows: First Term-Treasurer, W. S. Stamper, Va. 5 Executive Committee, H. F. Smith, W. Va., chairmang I. W. Bevans, D. C.5 P. A. Bowen, Jr., Md.5 Second Term-President, I. L. Cousar, Ark.5 T9 Treasurer, C. E.

Carlson, Minn. 5 December 19, Samuel Platt, Nev., and A. F. Specht, Pa., january 16. 1897, I. H. DeWitt, Tenn., and W. M. Crook, Tex. 3 February zo, I. T. Hendrick, Tenn., and Preston Boisseau, Va.g March 27, E. S. Frith, Tenn., and L. H. Machen, Va., April 17, W. E. Sullivan, Idaho, and WT. I. Hays, Ohio. The honors in these debates were awarded to Messrs. Carlson, English, Platt, DeWitt, Crook, Hendrick and Sullivan 3 and Messrs. Hendrick and Sullivan were elected to represent the class in the Annual Prize Debate to be held June 5. The class of ,Q7 was fortunate in the line of subject-matter for debate. Many of the issues of the campaign of 1896 were new, but every question considered was .so well piesented in both of its aspects as to leave the auditors still undecided, and even the judges were frequently lacking in unanimity. Z5I7e Qolleqe Journal. The initial number of The Colzmzbzkwz Ca!! appeared Novem- ber I3, 1895. The fact that it is now two years old speaks for its success. It has been vvell conducted, and has been consid- erate in its treatment of the Law School, perhaps to the neglect of some of the other departments. Whole columns have been given up to orators and orations, and thus has it served a useful purpose. Posterity ever will be under obligations to the Call. While the class of ,97 has not had editorial representation, Mr. I. T. Hendrick, Tenn., of the class, successfully managed the business part of the journal during the junior year.
