All the property of the school, including the campus of 144 acres, all build-
ings, and all equipment, is owned by Tennessee Military Institute, Inc., a public
welfare fnon-profitl corporation and the control is vested in a self-perpetuating
Board of Trustees composed of sixteen alumni and four other members. This
organization plan was adopted as a means of assuring the future and continued
usefulness of the school-a school already going forward with its fourth quarter
of a century of service. l

E ARE assuming that the reader of this catalog is either a boy interested
n selecting the school he will attend or a Parent equally interested
in selecting the school which he believes will develop the best capabilities of his
boy. In either case, you want to learn all you can about the schools under
consideration. The choosing of a school is the most important choice made
by, or for, a boy up to the time that choice is made. The school period from
age thirteen to eighteen is the period in which ambitions are fired and the
foundations laid determining future happiness and successg or it is the period
in which laxities develop, leading to poor achievement and disappointment.
You are interested in selecting the right school. We are interested in
selecting for admission boys for whom our program of work and activities
is well suited. In the next few pages we have discussed what we consider
the most important considerations in selecting a school. In later pages will
be found information concerning courses of study, athletic and other activities,
cost of attendance, et cetera. Read the catalog from the beginning and write
for further information on any point which may not be clear. Do not act
on the assumption that all military schools are alike and that it makes no dif-
ference which one is selected. Schools differ just as much as do the men who
direct their policies.
You will learn that Tennessee Military Institute is a school of well-estab-
lished traditions. The administrative officers have worked together for more
than forty years and are in complete harmony on what constitutes desirable
procedures. This continuity of management and steadiness of policy have given
the school a distinct character of its own.
It is a school of high scholastic standards, designed to serve the interests
of boys from good homes whose ambitions and life plans call for later attend-
ance in the better colleges and professional schools.
T. M. I. is a friendly school. The teachers are friendly and helpful toward
the boys, easily approachable at all times, and ready to help a boy with his
personal problems, whether great or small. Old boys are friendly and helpful
toward new boys and have a large share in assisting the new boy in becoming

adjusted and happy in the school. The whole atmosphere of the school is that
of good fellowship, of working and playing together.
In the evening hours set apart for study and th! morning hours for
recitation, we work at things scholastic as if we had no y ther department. In
the military hour, we master military drill with equal interest and enthusiasm.
When three o'clock comes and we turn to recreation and sports, we play as if
we had neither academic nor military departments. This succession of interests
prevents monotony and contributes to the development of sound scholarship,
good health, character, and well-rounded personality.
We believe it to be the duty of private preparatory schools to cultivate
thoroughness in everything undertaken and to insist on mastery of funda-
mental courses. As a means toward achieving these desirable ends, we believe
it to be the duty of private schools to restrict their enrollments to actual
capacity and to avoid overcrowding facilities in the manner now unavoidable
in the public schools. Regardless of size of dormitory rooms, we question the
wisdom of placing more than two boys to the room. We believe that private
schools, both military and nonmilitary, have a duty to perform in maintaining
sound standards of scholarship and favorable working conditions leading to
We doubt that any teacher or group of teachers can now foresee the prob-
lems that will require solution ten or twenty years from this time. Therefore,
we believe it to be the primary duty of all good schools to develop thorough-
ness and mental discipline in their pupils, so that in the years to come they will
be able to concentrate effective thought toward the solution of problems as they

Different parents will. arrange in different orders of importance the ele-
ments for which they will look in the schools they consider. Most discrimi-
nating parents will seek to find a school CD known for its scholastic excel-
lence, f2j known to be under the direction of men of sound character, whose
influences on maturing boys will be desirable, Q32 a school large enough to
afford a comprehensive program and small enough to afford individual atten-
tion, MJ a school having adequate, comfortable, clean buildings and sani-
tary surroundingsg C51 a school that gives promise of permanence by the
success of its past and the achievements of its present, f6j a school located
in a favorable environment, judged from the point of view of the individual
parent, C75 a school so situated as to promise freedom from distracting in-
fluences such as beset most boys in their home communities, and Q81 a school
equipped with such recreational facilities as make it probable that the boy
will be happy in his surroundings. Since parents differ in their tastes and
judgments and since boys differ in type and temperament, quite obviously schools
of varying types will appeal to different family groups. In the paragraphs
which follow, we undertake to discuss the foregoing elements of importance in
the selection of a school and to explain the position of Tennessee Military In-
stitute on each of them.
1- SCHUI-ASTIC This is a period of great diversity of method in the teaching
EXCELLENCE profession and of equal diversity of objectives sought in dif-
ferent schools. A generation ago, private preparatory schools
and public high schools taught a limited number of subjects in much the same
manner, holding the pupil to a program of consecutive courses until some de-
gree of mastery was attained in the essential branches of English, Mathematics,
Latin for other foreign languagej, History, and Science. Twenty-five or thirty
years ago a trend developed under which the requirements for a high school
diploma could be satisfied by the substitution of many so-called vocational
courses without regard to the contribution these made toward fitting a boy for
genuine college work. Since it has been the record of Tennessee Military In-
stitute over a long period of years that more than ninety per cent of its grad-
uates enter college, this school has continued its insistence on sound preparation
for college through the mastery of essential courses. In our judgment, this is
the best way to cultivate mental discipline and the ability to undertake the solu-
tion of problems that will arise during the later period of college attendance
and still later in the affairs of life.
As a result of conducting the school in accordance with these convictions
for more than fifty years, we have brought about the result in Tennessee
Military Institute that there are very few failures in college work by graduates
of this school. This is particularly true with reference to college courses in
Mathematics and Sciences based on Mathematics which are the departments in
which there are the highest percentages of failure for high school graduates.
2. FACTORS WHICH Before any school can promise to cultivate character,
cuL1'lvA1'E CHARACTER it must remove the factors that undermine character.
Of first importance is the faculty. No teacher of
questionable personal habits or standards can be employed or retained. On the
positive side, the school must be officered and the classes must be taught by
men of such high ideals and such genuine conceptions of sound character that
the pupil will be influenced both consciously and unconsciously to emulate the
qualities he admires in one or more of his teachers. Character cannot be forci-
bly injected into a boy. The most potent factor in cultivating character is com-
ing in intimate contact constantly with men of genuine convictions and un--
swerving loyalty to their ideals. It is important that these ideals be connected
with genuine religious reverence and a steady faith in the eternal things. Ten-
nessee Military Institute has several such personalities, and many hundreds of
boys have been influenced by them.
Further, for a school to succeed in cultivating character, its institutional
policies must be thoroughly honest and free from all elements of trickery.
Sometimes a school preaches a very impressive doctrine of righteousness and
then resorts to such questionable business or interscholastic practices as to de-
stroy any influence for good from its preaching.
Tennessee Military Institute makes no claim of perfection in this important
field. It does claim to be free from pretense, hypocrisy, and sham. It is our
belief that a high per cent of our boys every year admire the qualities of the
Christian gentleman and that many seek to cultivate these qualities in themselves.
3. BIG ENOUGH TO AFFOIIIJ A COMPREHENSIVE PROGRAM- A Small School,
SMALL ENOUGH 'ro PROVIDE INDIVIDUAL ATTENTION 11111655 heavlly
e n d o W e d o r
operated at a very high tuition rate, cannot afford to provide either a cur-
riculum embracing the essential branches or a recreational program that will
provide a desirable variety to cover the interests of all boys enrolled. There-
fore, a school that prefers to make up its enrollment from good middle-class
business and professional income brackets should be a medium-sized school
of about 550 boys. In such a school, class sections can be organized rang-
ing from ten to fifteen boys to the class, enabling each teacher daily to
learn and care for the needs of each boy. It makes it possible for the admin-
istrative officers as well as teachers to know every boy in school. This re-
stores the values that have largely been lost in recent years as schools have
grown to such large numbers. Believing that these are important factors in
determining the quality of service we think a private preparatory school should
undertake to render, Tennessee Military Institute has set 350 boys as the at-
tendance limit it will not exceed. The number of day students from Sweet-
water and adjacent towns is limited to fifty and the number of boarding
students to 300.
4. ADEQUA-I-E' COMFORTABLE' Satisfactory schoolwork is by no means con-
AND SANITARY BUILDINGS tingent on superfine buildings and showy sur-
roundings. In selecting a school we certainly
would not rate the quality of the buildings as a first consideration. On
the other hand, it should be recognized that clean, comfortable living and work-
ing quarters do contribute to the happiness and contentment of students and
thereby increase the probability of satisfactory scholastic progress. That is what
we provide at Tennessee Military Institute - buildings that are clean and com-
fortable. We invite visits of inspection.
5. PERMANENCE It is a sad experience for a person to attend a school which
closes its doors and passes out of existence during the lifetime
of its graduates. Recent years have furnished several such instances. In select-
MAIN BUILDING FROM NORTHEAST
ing a school, some thought should be given to stability and permanence. While
no school would be justified in claiming its own immortality, Tennessee Mili-
tary Institute has much that promises continuance for a long period. Founded
in the hard days shortly after the War between the States, it has successfully
weathered several seasons of financial stress and strain.
Since its founding, it has had three groups of long-term administrators.
The first of these continued for twenty-six years, the next for thirteen years,
and the present group has been in charge since 1919. This makes for steadiness
of policy and general stability.
Despite its ninety years of age, the school has all the characteristics of a
steadily increasing vigor. It was moved to a new campus sixty years ago
and that campus is just now reaching a peak of beauty and attractiveness
which classes it with the most beautiful school premises in America.
6. ENVIRONMENT' LOCATION' Beautiful surroundings help to cultivate a love
ACCESSIBILITY of the beautiful-an important element in the
education of a cultured gentleman. In this re-
spect, Tennessee Military Institute is most fortunate. Not only is our own
campus very beautiful, but the views from the campus are beautiful in all di-
rections. The Great Smoky Mountains are visible most of the time in one
direction, the Chilhowee Mountains in another, and the Cumberlands in an-
other. Several times each winter, with no sign of snow at Sweetwater, the
Smokies are snow-capped.
The population of the town is composed of home-owning, home-loving,
churchgoing people. It has been a school town for ninety years. The best
families, typical of the old Southern culture, frequently ask permission to have
groups of our boys to dinner in their homes. All in all, it is a good home town
for a school.
Sweetwater is unsurpassed in point of accessibility both by automobile
and by train. The most frequented motor highway from New York to New
Orleans constitutes the front border of our campus for four-tenths of a mile.
The most-used motor route from the Great Lakes cities to Florida doubles on
this same highway for forty miles on each side of Sweetwater. Without
question, more automobile travelers see T. M. I. annually than see any other
military school in the United States. Patrons in their travels are constantly
stopping by the school to visit their boys. The school is located approximately
thirty-live miles from Tyson Airport, which serves the Knoxville area. Boys trav-
elling by air use Delta, American, Southern, Piedmont, and United Airlines. Con-
venient schedules are available to all points in the nation by air. The accessibility
of the school by car and airplane has contributed to the national patronage of the
7- FREEDOM FROM Family and community customs have so changed
D'5TRACT'NG 'NF'-UENCES in the last generation that teen-age boys no longer
have any fair chance of doing uninterrupted work
in their own homes. Even in childhood, one interruption follows another, ut-
terly disrupting the cultivation of any sustained study habits. As the boy gets
older and reaches the high school age, it becomes still worse. Such distractions,
social and otherwise, would explain why many parents are considering private
academies this year for their boys. Parents seeking a solution for this problem
would do well to avoid selecting a school so situated that the boy would merely
be exchanging one set of distracting influences at home for another set of dis-
tractions in another locality. Tennessee Military Institute is most fortunately
situated in this respect. Located just inside the corporate limits of a small
town, other than one high-class motion picture theatre, there is little that at-
tracts boys away from the school campus. Consequently, most of the free time of
the boys is spent in congenial groups engaged in some interesting activity on the
campus. Of the influences which distract at home and cause worry and anxiety
to parents, we have practically none.
8' RECREAHONAL FAC"-'HES Parents want their boys to be happy in
MAKWG Fok STUDENT HAPPINESS their school life away from home. We
desire the same. The happy boy loves
his school and does better schoolwork. Therefore, we spend much time, effort,
and money every year providing facilities and activities mainly for the happiness
of the boys. That T. M. I. boys are happy and enjoy thoroughly their life on the
campus, neither a transient or long-time visitor could possibly doubt. Evidences
of hilarious fun and good humor are everywhere present. That much of it in
the free time is too noisy for nervous maiden aunts we cheerfully admit. This
rollicking fun becomes the normal order of life during the school session to
such an extent that it requires several days for us to become adjusted to the
quiet of the campus in vacation times. This is not only true of us of the campus
community but likewise true of residents living near the school who enjoy the
good-humored noise of the campus during the afternoon free time. Perhaps it
should be added that this noisy enjoyment of school sports and fun is charac-
teristic only of the recreation period from 5:00 to 5:50 as excellent orderliness
prevails during the academic portion of the day and throughout the night study
period and again after taps.
The campus affords facilities for all varieties of recreation. Major varsity
sports are football, basketball, wrestling, baseball, and track. Minor sports are
tennis, golf, soccer, cross country, rifle team, and swimming. Three football teams
played interscholastic schedules last fall. Three basketball teams played inter-
scholastic schedules, and four other teams played an intercompany league season
lasting several weeks. Through the coaching experience of these younger and
smaller teams, we develop the athletes who largely compose our varsity teams
in all sports. Thus, most of our athletes are the product of our own training. Yet,
despite the fact that our schedules are played with schools numbering from two to
four times our enrollment, in the last few years T.M.I. teams have won six Mid-
South Championships in football, three in basketball, two in track, two in golf,
and have been runner-up in three other cases. Two new athletic fields have been
added to the school campus to adequately provide play space for our cadet student
Our mild climate permits tennis and golf almost without interruption dur-
ing the year, and groups of boys enjoy these sports constantly.
Will your boy be happy in T. M. I.? A variety of activities are provided in
addition to the athletics indicated above. As of the present, we are providing
for a school newspaper, band, explorer post, and public speaking to fill out
the program of activities necessary to fill the present need of each boy and to
enrich his future life.
In the foregoing eight sections, we have sought to enlist the reader's in-
terest in eight important considerations in the selection of a school, namely,
Scholastic Excellence, Character-Molding Influences, Size of School, Adequacy
and Comfort of Buildings, Permanence, Favorahle Geographic Location and
Environment, Freedom from Distracting Influences, and Happiness of Student
Life. These are the factors which we considered when we, as parents, were
selecting schools for our own children. Other parents interested in selecting
a school and desiring the most satisfactory development of their boys will do
well to bear these considerations in mind.

Those who have read the foregoing pages may be interested in some addi-
tional facts concerning the history of the school. We therefore give the fol-
lowing brief historical sketch:
Tennessee Military Institute has been built on the foundation laid for it
in its predecessor, Sweetwater Military College. Sweetwater Military College
was founded in 1874 by the Rev. john Lynn Bachman, a prominent Presby-
terian minister. Dr. Bachman's purpose in founding the school was to provide
a place where young men could have good educational advantages under safe
and wholesome influences. Dr. Bachman continued as the active head of the
school for twenty-six years, establishing its policies, fixing its standards of
work and government, and influencing the thought, purposes, and ideals of
The administrative officers in charge from 1902 to 1915 changed the name
to Tennessee Military Institute and inaugurated policies which brought the
school into nation-wide recognition. By 1909 the school had completely out-
grown its buildings. Consequently a large tract of land was purchased on the
"Hill," just outside the corporate limits of Sweetwater. All buildings now used
have been erected on this new campus since that date.
The military has been an essential Part of the school since its founding. Dur-
ing the early history of the school, the military program was under the direction
of qualified personnel employed by the school. There followed a period in
which T. M. I. participated in ROTC, At present, we have returned to the
original plan, with the military program directed by regular faculty personnel.
For further information about the military, see Page Fifty-Three.
In 1953 the administrative officers now in charge became connected with
the school. Since that date, a remarkably steady faculty organization has been
maintained, teacher changes during the period being less than ten per cent an-
nually. Thus there has been developed here an order of teamwork such as can
be found in very few preparatory schools and such as cannot be had in any school
that is continually changing officers and teachers. This accounts for the higher
standards of scholastic work and the greater steadiness in governmental policies
that have distinguished this school.
COIUQ 0 ,MLP eine . . .
39'-I-EGF Dating from the adoption of the present name of the school in
PREPARATORY 1904, the primary objective has been the adequate preparation
of boys for successful work in the better colleges and technical
schools. It is constantly borne in mind that adequate preparation for college
comprises thorough teaching on the part of teachers, the acquiring of right
habits of study on the part of students, and, still more important, the cultiva-
tion in the pupil of the fundamentals of sound character. .
The preparatory school course is usually thought of as a four-year course
comprising the ninth to twelfth grades, inclusive. Considering our college-
preparatory work our chief function, and keeping the emphasis in the school
in that direction, it has been natural that most of our pupils represent this
Since Tennessee Military Institute has come to be recognized as one of the
outstandingly good college preparatory schools, boys and parents interested in
that type of education have selected this school in increasing numbers. This, in
turn, has resulted in bringing to the school boys of better than average mental
ability. Consequently, the work of the school is designed for this superior
The college preparatory work requires a student to accomplish sixteen
Carnegie units as a requirement for graduation. These units must come in the
fields of English, Mathematics, Languages, Science, and Social Science. Prep-
aration for college based on this quality of credit structure assures the neces-
sary preparatory work to meet the requirements for entrance at the better col-
leges and universities. T. M. I. has restricted the offerings leading to its college
preparatory diploma to work of this character through a period of more than
EIGHTH Our work below high school is limited to one class preparing boys
GRADE for work in our freshman or ninth grade course. In general this
work conforms to eighth grade courses as taught in the public
school with somewhat greater emphasis on English and Mathematics to prepare
boys for continuation courses in the same subjects. Class sections in this group
are alway small and teachers are able to give close attention to the needs of in-
CHARACTER OF STUDENT BODY
Few, if any, considerations in the selection of a school are more important
than that of the kind of boys attracted to it, and the reputation of these
boys for good conduct during their period of school attendance. It is our
belief that inquiry from those who know T. M. I. both locally and throughout
the large area served by it will bring convincing testimony, first, that it draws
boys of much better than average character and general promise, and, second,
that the atmosphere and influences of the school and community on boys en-
rolled result in a record, year after year, of superior student conduct.
There are good reasons for this. In the first place, T. M. I. is a school of
well-defined policies and traditions developed through the continuous super-
vision of the same administrative officers. It is known to be a school of excel-
lent government and orderliness, Quite naturally, such a school makes its
appeal to parents of similar ideals and to homes where orderliness, regard for
parental wishes, and respect for parental authority prevail. As a rule, such
homes are homes of culture and refinement. Boys with such family back-
ground are better material for a school to work on, and from them there em-
anate better influences on their associates in the intimate life of the boarding
school. An unusually high per cent of our boys come from these better homes
and display evidences of better home training.
The new cadet entering the school comes in contact with old boys already
proud of its fine traditions and loyal to its higher interests. This appeals to
his better impulses and arouses or confirms in him a purpose to make for
himself a good student record in the school and school community. This sort
of process has gone on through the years and still continues in T. M. I. It
has become a mighty power for good influences in the life of the school as a
whole and in the individual lives of boys enrolled.
MORAL AND RELIGIOUS INFLUENCES
While Tennessee Military Institute is not a church school in the sense that
it is supported by funds from any particular denomination, the importance
of religion in the life of the individual and the claims of the churches on the
trained leadership developed in the schools are held before our cadets con-
stantly. Hence, it is our constant effort to create in the school a wholesome
and vital religious atmosphere-an atmosphere that will inspire and elevate the
life and purposes of our cadets and develop in them serious regard for the
religious aspects of their lives.
CHAPEL In Tennessee Military Institute chapel is held two mornings each
EXERUSES week, Mondays and Thursdays. On each Monday Rev. McCul1ey,
our school Chaplain, conducts the exercises. On Thursday several
members of the faculty take turns in conducting the exercises.
Each morning the exercises start with the singing of one or more songs.
Good singing is a tradition in T. M. I. We think that these two chapel assem-
blies, coupled with Sunday School and church attendance on Sunday, is
adequate to meet the needs of the boys.
CHURCH Attendance at Sunday morning church services is required of
ATTENDANCE all cadets. Sweetwater is fortunate in its church situation. It is
a churchgoing town and the congregations are larger than will
be found in most towns of similar size. Sweetwater has been as school town
for almost ninety years and pastors and people show a very desirable interest
in the church life of our cadets. -
We do not have a Catholic Church in Sweetwater. To provide -for Catholic
cadets, we arrange to send them by automobile to Catholic Mass conducted by
the priest living in nearby Knoxville, Tennessee. This plan has been satisfac-
tory to all Catholic boys and their parents in recent years.
A THREEFOLD GROWTH STIMULATED
Nine mature-...men out of every ten realize that they are now what they
had begun in a very definite way to be when they were nineteen years of age.
There is a very small minority into whose lives some great change has come
at a later period by which the present character is distinctly separated from
that of the boy, but this is the exception and not the rule.
Believing that a boy in his teens is getting the physical growth which
determines his later physical fitness for whatever demands may be made on
him, that he is getting the mental training which will later determine his
preparedness or unpreparedness for his lifework, that he is getting the moral
and spiritual development which will determine what his character will be,
we undertake in a positive and definite way to stimulate development along
these three fundamental lines throughout a boy's attendance in T. M. I.
PHYSICAL Each cadet is required to undergo a physical examination to
GROWTH determine his physical qualifications prior to his enrollment.
STIMULATED Where no marked variation is found from the normal for boys
of his age, the regular-drills and calisthenics under our military
instructors, coupled with the various lines of athletics, are considered sufficient.
Regular hours and systematic exercises and the military requirement of erect
carriage will guarantee the proper growth where the boy is already normal.

SUPERIOR Since it is the work of every school to try to cultivate mental
INTEI-I-EC'I'UAI- development, no single school may claim patent rights on all
TRAINING the excellencies of method. This we do not do. It is a fact,
however, that there is a wide difference between the results
sought and the methods used in ,the schools of the country. Tennessee Mili-
tary Institute excels most of the schools of its type in its insistence on high
academic standards and its provisions by which cadets are enabled to measure
up to these higher requirements. The first, and perhaps the most important,
of these provisions for the pupils' benefit is the high degree of efficiency and
capablity of the teaching staff. Every teacher in the Faculty has been thoroughly
trained for the particular line of work which he is teaching in T. M. I. This
means much in arousing the boy to his best efforts. A second provision in the
interest of better academic work is the regular study period. There is a definite
preparation period which the cadet must observe preceding the recitation periods.
Then there are our special privilege lists under which certain coveted privileges
are open only to those attaining the requisite class standing. Almost any boy
will put in his best efforts to place his name on the Privilege List, a copy of
which is mailed to all patrons monthly. In addition to these provisions and in-
centives for higher scholarship standing, there are the firm, but considerate, re-
quirements of each teacher and extra-hour special sessions to help up and spur
on those who are behind the class average or are careless in their preparations.
We believe, therefore, that Tennessee Military Institute can justly claim su-
perior results in stimulating mental growth.
CHARACTER But more important than physical growth and more significant
BUILDING than intellectual training is the character of the boy-that which
will later be the character of the man. Athletic proportions of
body and superior attainments intellectually do not, by themselves, procure
respect and confidence. From this it follows that character building is the
first and highest work of the school. Noble impulses are present in every boy's
soul. Inspiring the higher motives and inculcating correct conceptions on the
fundamentals of truth and honesty go far toward character building. We strive
earnestly and continuously to get our boys to recognize their own better selves
and fix permanently in their lives the foundations of sound and clean manhood.
The key word to our method of dealing with boys is fmnleness. We are
open and straightforward in our treatment of the boy, and in nine cases out
of ten we are able to secure a like attitude on his part. What we have to say
to our boys in a body or as individuals is expressed in simple, direct language.
We use no bluff or bluster. The average boy despises sham and hypocrisy,
and is quick to detect any symptoms of such in officer or teacher. Honesty and
truth are part of the atmosphere and spirit of the institution, and the new boy
soon catches this spirit. We believe, therefore, that T. M. I. is contributing in
a very genuine and positive way to the building of trustworthy and honorable
characters in the pupils enrolled with us.

MAIN BUILDING The main building houses under one roof administrative
offices, classrooms, assembly hall, rooms for 200 boarding
cadets, apartments for six married teachers and dining room and kitchen reached
by a barracks porch. All cadet rooms open on concrete and steel porches, thus
eliminating fire danger and avoiding corridor problems at one time. A new kitchen,
equipped for cafeteria service was added in the summer of 1967.
AUDITORIUM The auditorium-gymnasium, built in the summer of 1954, is a great
GYMNASWM addition to our campus. This building is 107' long and 80, Wide
with bleachers on each side and with a projecting rostrum along
the South wall, so as to make it possible to use the building as an auditorium, seat-
ing a thousand people.
RECREATION This building was erected during the 1964-65 term as a memorial
BU"-DWG to Mr. William W. Walker. It houses a student lounge, sandwich
bar, student post office, and game rooms. It is attractively furn-
INFIRMARY The school infirmary, designed to have residential appearance,
is equipped with eighteen hospital beds and separate wards for
isolating any case of a contagious character that may develop.
LIBRARY The library building, erected in 1947, is most attractive in appear-
ance, both outside and inside. It is furnished with golden oak tables
and chairs with convenient shelving for books and magazines.
MILITARY The military building, erected in the summer of 1948, provides
BU"-DWG offices for the military staff, three classrooms, and storage facil-
ities for military property and weapons. In addition, the military
building has an excellent indoor rifle range, equipped for complete safety in rifle
firing. Pictures of this building will be found on Page Fifty-Nine.
CLASSROOM AND During the summer of 1959 a classroom and laboratory build-
LABORATORY was erected. This building provides most modern facilities
for our Mathematics, Modern Language, and Science in-
struction and laboratories. The building is beautifully equipped.
D. MEAD Built during 1966, D. Mead johnson Hall houses our entire grad-
JOHNSON uating class, together with two faculty families. This dormitory is
HAH' of excellent design and is well furnished.

"A chain is no stronger than its weakest link." Likewise a school is no
better than its government. Scholarship in the faculty and excellence of
buildings and equipment are wasted in schools lacking in governmental con-
trol. In such schools, pupils spend their energies on things other than the
real purposes of the school. Most parents have witnessed the failure of some
school under such conditions.
Successful school government consists of sensible regulations carried out
with firmness and fairness by teachers of personality. Much is heard these
days about resentment of restraints by teen-age boys. This is probably true
in schools of varying policies and in home life where one boy compares his
restrictions with the liberties allowed to his friends by their parents. In Ten-
nessee Military Institute government is characterized by uniformity, firmness,
and fairness. Consequently, boys here recognize the fairness of the officers in
charge of government, and therefore accept in fine spirit the requirements
made of them under the regulations of the school.
Any school can impose prohibitory regulations, but not every school can
succeed in having its prohibitions accepted in such spirit and good humor by
its pupils as to accomplish the real purposes of school government. The suc-
cess of Tennessee Military Institute along this line has served as the founda-
tion on which to build high standards of scholastic attainment and to main-
tain uplifting and inspiring influences on boys enrolled.
IDI-E-MIND Somebody has said, in language more expressive than elegant,
DANGER5 that "the idle mind is the devil's workshop." This is probably
true to a greater or less degree in all stages of life, but is certainly
true of the period of boyhood. The busy boy never causes trouble. On
the other hand, when there are idle hours of the day or night during which
the boy is left to his own inventions and devices, the live youngster will invent
and devise and also execute. Unfortunately, many of his schemes for whiling
away the hours are mischievous and dangerous.
KEEP THE Hence, our first effort toward orderliness and good government
BUY BUSY in Tennessee Military Institute is directed to keeping the boy busy.
We undertake to prevent the "idle-hour" offenses against school
government by removing the idle hours. The ounce of -prevention here is
worth the pound of cure. This must not be understood to mean that life in
T. M. I. is one continual grind of drill or study, but it does mean that there
is such definite provision for the use of every hour in the boy's daily schedule
that he does not have long periods to himself in which to brood, or become
discontented and unhappy, or to plan and carry out trouble-producing schemes.
Page T wenty-four
For the exact hours of the daily schedule, see page 46. When a boy has met
his military and academic requirements for the day and used the night study
period in preparation for the following day, he is ready for bed.
Believing that successful government depends on respect for law rather
than multitude of laws, we make such simple, common-sense regulations as are
sufficient to safeguard the best interests of the individual pupil and the school
as a whole, and such as the pupil's best judgment is bound to approve. By
firmly, constantly, and consistently enforcing these regulations, government be-
comes an easy and not unpleasant part of directing the school.
Having read the foregoing paragraphs, parents and prospective pupils
would probably deduce the attitude of the school toward infractions of school
regulations. However, in order that there be no misunderstanding on the part
of any boy or parent, the followi-ng penalties are enumerated.
Major infractions, such as drinking, possession of intoxicants, hazing, leavl
ing the vicinity of Sweetwater, organizing secret fraternities or societies, and
the like, are punished by immediate dismissal from the school.
Severe penalties in the form of demerits and restriction to the campus
are assessed whenever a student is found guilty of such infractions of the reg-
ulations as night absence from the campus, gambling, unclean language, and
Penalties for tardiness, failure to have quarters in proper arrangement,
talking in ranks, and the like, vary according to announcement during the
year and carry small demerit assessments. We reserve the right to increase
or decrease penalties in whatever manner may be necessary to reduce offenses
to a minimum.
It should be further understood that the school has the right to request
parents to withdraw from the school any pupil whose conduct has been such
as to indicate clearly that he is having an unfavorable influence on other boys,
even though. he has not been guilty of an infraction of regulations warranting
All furloughs in T. M. I., with the exception of emergencies, are charged
against a leave credit for each boy. The amount of leave credit each boy has is
determined by the number of years he has been in school and is dependent on
satisfactory performance in the academic, military, and disciplinary fields.
Leave for emergencies, such as deaths, weddings, and serious illness in the
family, are not charged against boys normal leave credit. In such cases, notifi-
cation should come directly to the school and the boy notified by the school
The Spring Vacation will begin at 10:00 A.M. on Thursday, March 9, and
will end at 5:00 P.M. on Sunday, March 19. During all recent years all stu-
dents have used this leave to visit home or the homes of near relatives. Under
no conditions will permission be granted for a boy to spend this vacation period
in the home of another student.
In the deposits required at the beginning of each quarter is 355.00 per week
for Cash Allowance. This seems to be adequate to meet a boy's needs for pocket
It should be understood that each boy has an account with the school com-
mfissary at which he can secure necessary supplies to meet his school needs. This
account includes books, paper, school supplies, toilet articles, and the like.
oncerning we gateway . . .
Parents and boys considering the selecting of a school are interested in loca-
tion and accessibility, quality of buildings and equipment, educational recog-
nition, and various other important considerations. However, tlae most impor-
tant consideration, the one that means the most in the life of the boy of this year
and of the man he is to be a decade later, is the character and personality of the
men who, as teachers, will influence the forming of his character. The contacts
made in classroom and chapel, dormitory room and playground, between teach-
ers and boys in the intimate life of the boarding school, pass on the "power"
of the school into the life of the boy, arousing ambition, supplying objectives,
inspiring needed decisions.
Therefore, parents and boys should seek just as much information as pos-
sible concerning the officers and teachers of the schools under consideration.
At first thought this may seem a hard problem. It is not. It is easy to make
contact in person, or by letter or telephone, with several other parents who have
already had boys in a school. Specific questions concerning the character of
teachers, their reputation for fair dealing, etc., will reveal the personalities of
the men composing the faculty of a particular school. Tennessee Military In-
stitute invites just this sort of searching inquiry concerning its teachers.
During the next two, three, or four years, some one teacher will become the
outstanding influence in the life of the boy, just as a generation ago another
teacher had the same sort of influence in the life of every successful father who
may read these paragraphs. Talk with our old boys will reveal that one teacher
here has been the great influence in the life of one boy, another in the life of
Believing this, we have maintained through the years a faculty of mature
men who have demonstrated success in teaching boys. Since 1919, our teacher
changes have averaged less than 20W per year. When we find it advisable to
employ a new teacher, we always arrange for a personal interview so that we
may estimate his probable influence on boys as well as his ability to teach a cer-
Our administrative officers all teach classes and thus maintain a close touch
with the boys in school. Our teachers are men who definitely chose teaching as
a profession as contrasted with many people who have merely drifted into teach-
ing as a job. They are teaching in a boys' school because they love boys and are
interested in their progress. T They work together with a fine spirit of teamwork
and their effectiveness is weakened by no petty jealousies. Their influences on
boys attending T. M. I. are desirable influences.

Our educational creed has been indicated 'on earlier pages. Briefly speak-
ing, we believe in the mastery of fundamental courses in English, Mathematics,
Foreign Languages, History, and Science as adequate foundation for successful
work in college. This program has been followed in Tennessee Military In-
stitute for many years with the result that in all recent years more than ninety
per cent of our graduates enter good colleges in various areas of the United
Tennessee Military Institute is committed to an open admissions policy.
Any student who can meet the school's academic, physical, moral, and financial
requirements may be admitted to the school and its entire program. There is
no discrimination against any student with regard to enrollment in this school.
In all recent years a very high percentage of the boys enrolled in Tennessee
Military Institute have college preparation as the primary reason for their en-
rolhnent. Throughout the period of a boy's attendance here, we try to stimulate
each individual boy in his effort to attain the kind of subject mastery and study
habits which will aid him in his collegiate work. We have found through the
years few boys disqualified from this effort due to lack of fundamental ability.
Most boys can learn how to study and how to prepare lessons well.
We require of each incoming new student a general aptitude test. This
test is designed to give parents assurance that their son is fully qualified to un-
dertake our course of study. Whenever possible we recommend each student
take the Secondary School Admissions Test by the Educational Testing Service
and have the results sent to us. Information on the SSAT can be secured from
T. M. I.
Class sections in Tennessee Military Institute average about fifteen boys
to the section Qabout half the number in the average high school classj. This
enables the teacher to know daily how well each pupil is doing his work. We
discourage changing from one class to another when the pupil thinks the
work is getting difficult and thereby avoid fractional credits such as are cer-
tified by public high schools. To enable boys to measure up to our higher
standards, special help periods are provided on half holidays to which many boys
come voluntarily every week. In short, we have succeeded in making it popular
in T. M. I. to seek good marks and good class standing.

The course of study which a boy completes in Tennessee Military Insti-
tute determines the type of college, university, or techincal school for which
he is prepared. Great care is exercised in this school to guide the boy into the
work that will equip him best for the college work and professional training to
which he aspires.
The courses leading to Diploma "A" are required of all students desiring
admission to the best colleges.

There is a growing awareness of the fact that English is ineffectively
taught in many of the schools of America. Too many graduates of high school,
and even of college, are, according to their employers, noticeably deficient in
their ability to use the language correctly and effectively. We realize at T. M.
I. that the ability to speak and write correctly, clearly, and forcefully, and the
knowledge of good literature are assets of tremendous value to any young man,
hence, we place at the top of the list of our academic objectives a strong pro-
gram of instruction in English.
The course of study is planned to emphasize the development of the
fundamental skills of reading, writing, and speaking the language and to meet
the requirements of college entrance. It embraces the study of grammar, usage,
theme writing, letter writing, spelling, vocabulary development, and literature.
Courses in corrective reading are offered for cadets who have reading diffi-
culties. Spelling and public speaking are emphasized. fSee below.j Webster's
"Collegiate Dictionary" and an excellent series of vocabulary workbooks are
used in all classes. Thoroughness and accuracy are stressed throughout the
Each cadet reads and studies in class and in outside reading as many of
the better books and classics as can be included in the course. The splendid
collection of well-chosen books which makes up our library is effectively used
both for required and voluntary reading. Orientation in the use of the library
is given to all new cadets during the first or second week of school each year,
and half of the study hall periods of each cadet are spent in the library. Use
of reference tools and all library aids to study and research is taught. Records
reveal an unusually high circulation of books per student.
SUB-FRESHMAN ENGLISH: Grammar: parts of speechg phrases, especially prepositionalg parts of the sen-
tence: sentence structure, diagramming and analysis of sentences. Definitions of
terms. Literature read for comprehension and interpretation. Vocabulary: assignments of words in literature and
in vocabulary workbook. Composition: letters, informal and formal, sentences and paragraphs: book reports:
ENGLISH I: Continuation of Grammar study: more detailed and advanced work of sub-freshman requirements:
Sentence structure and punctuation. Composition: letters and themes, stressing paragraph develop-
ment. Vocabulary exercises. Literature: anthology, including one novel and a Shakespearean play, usually
"As You Like It."
ENGLISH II: Study of more advanced grammar undertaken after review of first two years. Sentence struc-
ture, the paragraph, the longer theme, further mastery of rules of punctuation, vocabulary build-
ing exercises. Literature: Dickens's "A Tale of Two Cities" and Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar."
ENGLISH III: Grammar: Review and advanced work. Principles of good writing reviewed and applied in
frequently assigned, narrative, expository, and descriptive themes. American literature, with em-
phasis upon outstanding authors of the various periods, studied. Vocabulary exercises.
ENGLISH IV: Principles and rules of usage, sentence structure, punctuation, and effective writing applied in
various types of themes, culminating in a research paper of some length. Vocabulary develop-
ment continued. English literature studied. A Shakespearean play and an English novel read in class,
SPELLING AND PUBLIC SPEAKING
All students in Tennessee Military Institute are required to study Spelling
and to have practice in Public Speaking. Spelling classes are taught on Wednesday
and Saturday of each week. The practice in Public Speaking is secured through
oral reports on research work done in the Library in classes in English and His-
tory. While these courses do not count as a unit toward a diploma, we regard
them as very valuable in preparing our boys for their work following school days.
Mental growth finds its beginning in the power to concentrate and to reason.
A man's ability is determined by the extent to which these powers have been
developed. The relation of the study of Mathematics to this growth and the
mental discipline derived from a mastery of its principles justify the importance
which we give this subject in our course.
Every cadet in Tennessee Military Institute is required to study Mathematics,
four full years' work being required in the course leading to Diploma "A". For
Diploma "B", designed to satisfy the requirements of the less exacting colleges,
this requirement is reduced to three years, two in Algebra and one in Geometry.
For further information concerning Mathematics requirements, see outline of
courses on page 57.
We believe that no man can consider himself broadly educated without
some acquaintance with the record of human achievement in the generations
that have preceded him, no matter how well informed he may be concerning
contemporary developments. An adequate course of study in the Social Sciences
is essential to proper educational development. We are offering currently a com-
prehensive course composed of Civics, World History, Geography, United States
History, Government, and Economics. These offerings give the student a choice
of courses suitable to each of his four years of high school work.
A knowledge of the Bible is one of the greatest educational assets any man
can have in addition to the moral and spiritual values resulting from the study.
In an earlier paragraph, we have expressed our conviction that character develop-
ment is the most important work of a school. No other course offered in this
school affords so great opportunities for laying the foundation of good and

Our course in Bible, designed for juniors and Seniors, is an elective
which may be substituted in lieu of any History, except American History,
or elective Science credit toward a diploma.
We urge all our pupils whose ages and circumstances permit to get a
thorough course in Latin. In recent years most of our boys study Latin in
the freshman and sophomore years and then substitute French or Spanish in
their third and fourth years in preparation for the Modern Language they
plan to continue in college.
Courses are offered in French and Spanish. Our teachers are masters
in their respective fields, and seek to make the work in foreign language both
profitable and interesting to their pupils.
The courses offered in this department are intended to give the pupil
thorough mastery of the fundamentals that are necessary to an intelligent
understanding of the foreign language, and a thorough grasp of the significant
contributions of each nation studied to the development of western civilization.
The specific aims of the courses are: to give the pupil a correct and ready
pronunciation, mastery of the essential principles of syntax, ability to read and
write the language studied, facility in simple conversation on everyday topics,
and aural training that will enable him to understand the foreign language in
the classroom to such degree that he may successfully pursue the courses in for-
eign language offered by our best colleges and universities.
During the summer of 1962 a Modern Language Laboratory was installed
in the new classroom building. This equipment is of the latest design and is
proving most useful in enriching the language courses. The addition of this
equipment makes it possible to place the accent on the actual speaking of the
language at the same time the usual language skills are being learned.
The work in Science includes courses in General Science, Biology, Chem-
istry, and Physics. A standard text is used in each subject along with Lab-
oratory Manuals to guide laboratory work. Frequent lecture-table demonstra-
tions by the teachers are used in connection with instruction. The scope of
the work in each course is that necessary to establish the foundation for con-
tinuing work in Science in the better pre-medical and technical schools.

Instead of the usual Saturday holidays, half-holidays on Tuesdays and Fridays
are substituted. This plan has been followed in Tennessee Military Institute con-

On these days additional time is available for help periods for those boys
needing them. Also additional time is available for Public Speaking, Music, News-
paper, and a variety of other activities.

SUMMER SCHOOL 1971
June 14-August 7
The Summer School at Tennessee Military Institute is planned to meet the
needs of the following groups: flj Those who wish to secure credits to main-
tain their present class level, QZQ Those who wish to strengthen themselves in
some particular subject in order to perform satisfactorily in college, C31 those
fine students who wish to secure advanced standing at the secondary school
level, looking forward to advanced standing upon admission to college, Q41
Those now attending small high schools whose course offerings are limited in
the fields of Languages, Mathematics, or Science.
The quality of work in the summer school is very high and pupil develop-
ment is most satisfactory. It is, therefore, liked by both parents and pupils.
The classes are small, varying in number of pupils in each class section from two
to eight, thus insuring individual teaching for every student. The work is thor-
ough and concentrated. Each class meets three hours daily on alternating hours,
five and one-half days a week, for eight weeks. This, plus the supervised night
study, far exceeds the minimum requirements of the Southern Association of
Colleges and Secondary Schools, which is our accrediting agency. Pupils in re-
view courses are given the same amount of time as those in new ones. The com-
bination of these factors assures maximum performance on the part of the
student. We find that those taking basic courses in Summer School do excep-
tionally well in subsequent work in the regular session.

School starts on each Monday with Chapel services at 9:30 A.M. and ends
for the week on Saturday at noon. Boys living near enough to Sweetwater may
spend the week-end at home, with the exception of the first, middle, and last
ones of the session. One long holiday, starting Saturday noon and ending
Tuesday night, is given on the week-end nearest to July 4. Mid-year exam-
inations are given on Saturday and Monday at the end of the first four weeks.
Final examinations are scheduled for the end of summer school. Night town
leave is granted on Wednesday, and Saturday or Sunday.
All subjects listed in our catalog are offered, provided as many as two stu-
dents need the class. All pupils must be enrolled in two classes. A maximum
of two units credit may be earned during the period of the summer session. It
is most desirable for the school to be advised of the courses desired by each in-
dividual student. This will allow the summer session curriculum to be arranged
according to the needs of the students enrolled. A grade of 70 is required for
passing. Reports will be sent to the parents at the end of each second week.
SUMMER SCHOOL GROUP 1969
At the beginning of Summer School, all pupils are divided into four groups,
known as the Blues, Greens, Orange, and Reds, and colored jerseys are issued to
them. Play is organized between teams representing these groups and appro-
priate recognition is given to the champions at the end of the session. During
the first part of each week, all play volleyball and softball. During the last
part of each week, tournaments in golf, tennis, swimming, horse-shoes, ping-pong,
badminton, croquet, and basketball are conducted.
On week-ends, interesting activities are arranged. These include parties and
dances at school or in Sweetwater. Trips away from school have included swim-
ming and cook-outs in the Cherokee National Forest and on Watts Bar Lake.
Other features have been a trip through the National Atomic Energy Labora-
tories at Oak Ridge, bowling, dinner, and baseball in Knoxville and Chatta-
nooga, and a trip to Gatlinburg and the Great Smoky Mountain National Park.
The cost of the summer school program is found on Page Seventy-Seven.

Certain privileges in T. M. I., much desired by the cadets and not harm-
ful in themselves, are granted on a basis of academic standing and deport-
ment record. These lists are prepared at the end of each month and posted,
and also a copy is mailed to each patron of the school.
FIRST PRIVILEGE LIST: The First Privilege List includes all cadets whose
average for the month is 90 per cent or above and who have not fallen
below 80 per cent in any subject and have not received more than 5 de-
merits for the month.
SECOND PRIVILEGE LIST: The Second Privilege List carries the names of
all cadets whose lowest grade is not below 80 per cent, but average below
90 per cent, and who have not received more than 5 demerits for the month.
The privileges allowed under each of these lists are announced at the
opening of school.
In addition to the Privilege Lists referred to above, the school has inaugu-
rated a Merit System under which by good scholastic work, good conduct, and
leadership boys earn merits which, in turn, grants them furlough privileges.
This is explained by letter to all patrons at the opening of school.
CLASS LEADERSHIP MEDALS: Gold "T's" are awarded as medals to the
cadets maintaining the highest general average for the year in each of the
five classification groups.
MILITARY EFFICIENCY MEDALS: Medals are awarded to the cadet com-
missioned officer, non-commissioned officer, and private who are adjudged
to be the most efficient in their respective grades in the performance of
their military duties throughout the year.
Reports indicating the character of academic work and deportment record
are issued every four weeks. Our grading system is very clear and the Parent
is able to keep in touch with the progress of the boy by noting these reports
carefully. A grade of 70 per cent is required as the passing mark. Our teachers
grade very closely each day's work and there is no padding of grades. An aver-
age grade in T. M. I. is between 80 and 85 per cent.
In addition to grades by subjects, the report shows the general average
in all subjects, the number of boys in each class, and the rank of each boy in
that class. This policy has been followed for many years. The day in each
month when class rankings are read out is looked forward to with eager

Tennessee Military Institute has been military in plan, method, and or-
ganization for ninety years for the reason that its founder, and succeeding
officers have believed firmly in the values accruing to boys as a result of fol-
lowing military procedures in connection with their school work. We have
adhered to this organizational and procedural plan partly because of our belief
that our most capable young men should be trained for leadership in case of
national needs, such as have arisen three times in the last thirty-five years,
and partly for the reasons enumerated in the next paragraph.
We believe that most boys need the lessons in physical fitness resulting
from military training-erect carriage of the body, firm, rhythmic step, sys-
tematic, everyday, outdoor exercise as a means of keeping physically fit, and
that they need the character-forming lessons derived from living, working,
and playing according to an orderly schedule. In a good military school the
boy wakes, dresses, eats, works, plays, studies, sleeps, in accordance with a
regular schedule. He learns how to dress neatly without being a dude, how
to be dignified in bearing without being stiff, how to act his part as a leader
of men without appearing pompous and presumptuous. Orderliness, regulari-
ty, and systematic procedure are part of the atmosphere in which he lives.
To these may be added respect for superiors, respect for government, and the
spirit of co-operation and teamwork so much needed in the complex civic life
of the present generation. Some one has said that a man's character is the
sum total of his habits. Many courses of thought and action become habitual
in a military school, and these are desirable habits to build into character.

The athletic program at T. M. I. has developed through carefully consid-
ered steps to a present state that we consider to be the best suited to the needs of
the modern boys preparatory school. This program, outlined below, is now
All play is divided into three general heads as follows:
First-the varsity teams playing schedules made up of other preparatory
schools and large high schools in football, basketball, wrestling, track,
baseball, tennis, swimming, and golf.
Second-junior varsity and also small boy teams playing games against
similar groups from other schools in all the major sports.
Third-the intramural program consisting of games between the four com-
panies in football, basketball, track, baseball, volleyball, tennis, golf,
swimming, and other sports as the demand arises.
To conduct the above program neither expense nor energy is spared. The
school has superior physical equipment consisting of two gymnasiums which pro-
vide adequate facilities for all indoor sports, a good athletic field encircled by
a standard quarter-mile cinder track, a second athletic field serving for baseball,
softball, and practice field for football, a swimming pool, six paved tennis courts.
Expert coaches are provided for all varsity, junior varsity, and small boy teams.
The intramural program is under the supervision of a full-time director who is
assisted by other faculty members and also by outstanding athletes in the various
To show that the program works, we present the following facts:
Play at T.M.I. is not compulsory, yet each year ninety per cent of all students
play on an organized team of some kind.
More than half the boys win our athletic letter which is given for satisfac-
tory performance on a team playing against teams of other schools.
Over a period of years, strong teams, which have made enviable records,
have been developed, yet "winning" has not been overemphasized, and
Our teams have been composed of boys, seventy per cent of whom have
had all their athletic experience at this school.
T. M. I. has developed many excellent athletes who have been outstand-
ing in the colleges and universities, but takes equally as much pride in the
hundreds of boys who could not be outstanding athletes but have here first
learned to play with other boys and, through this play, have learned the funda-
mentals of good citizenship.

BELOW-INTERIOR VIEW OF MODERNIZED DINING ROOM
Instead of publishing a list of college officials, patrons, and
former cadets familiar with the work of our school, we have
thought it wise to invite inquiries on the part of people interested
so that a reference near them may be furnished. Graduates of the
school have attended practically every prominent college and uni-
versity in the United States and, through these schools, the quality
of our college preparatory work may be investigated. Likewise,
we have boys annually from about thirty states and, within recent
years, have had. boys from practically every state in the Union.
This enables us to furnish references in all areas.
The fixed charges for the school cover costs of tuition, board and furnished
room, heat, lights, water, library, athletics, use of the gymnasium, swimming
pool, and golf course, nurse's services, use of the infirmary, and group accident
