i . ' re hills of a small tdwn a tittle west of the state ' s capital city , Hampstead Academy was founded by Missis- sippi Baptists in 1826, as the state ' s first institution of higher leatning. The college was later named Mississippi Academy and then in 1830 assumed lts present title, Mississippi Col- lege. With this title came the authority ' to confer . . . such degrees in the arts, sciences, and languages as are usually conferred in the most respectable colleges in the United States . . .” The Civil War brought destruction and disorganization to the Mississippi College plant and its students. The quest for knowledge pressed on however, and in 1873 a position of stability was again reached. Dr. J. W. Provine ' s administra- tion, 1911-1933, proved to be an important era, for it was during this time that the college was given accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges. In 1943 Dr. D. M. Nelson brought coeducation with the purchase of Hillman College. The end of World War II brought an influx of students and an expansion of the college plant. Nelson Half hiederman, Gunter, and Mary Nelson dormitories came into being while the existing buildings were renovated, enlarged and improved. Dr. R. A.
