The aim of the institution is to afford a broad and liberal 
culture for women; to furnish to young women an education 
in the classics, mathematics and sciences equal to that obtained 
in our best colleges for young men, and to add to these that 
special training in social culture, music, art, and conversation, 
which shall better qualify them to enjoy and to do well their 
life-work. Elizabeth College is a womans college, aiming 
not only to give the broadest and highest moral, intellectual 
and physical culture, but also to preserve and perfect every 
characteristic of a complete womanhood. Having this in 
view, Elizabeth is a Christian College, for the reason that the 
Christian faith is an element of the highest culture. 

The range of studies in the institution, both as regards the 
regular collegiate course and special courses, is comprehen¬ 
sive, and up to the highest standards of modern collegiate 
education. The work of the class-room is done in accordance 
with the best methods which philosophy and experience sug¬ 
gest, while the teaching force of the faculty is made up of 
specialists, not one of whom is without both collegiate and post¬ 
graduate training. 


Elizabeth College is located at Charlotte, N. C., a beauti¬ 
ful and progressive city. Charlotte’s splendid railroad facili¬ 
ties afford easy connection with all points. 




A recent eminent writer has said: “The conclusion has 
been reached, after centuries of experiment, that the best loca¬ 
tion for a college is upon the limits of a city. In such an en¬ 
vironment the student is able to secure a communion with na¬ 
ture, and also with the best and largest life of humanity of 
every kind.” It was such a location that the founders of Eliza¬ 
beth College chose. The college site is one-half mile from the 
eastern border of Charlotte, on a beautiful eminence over¬ 
looking the city from its northern to its southern limit. The 
grounds, formerly known as Highland Park, and having the 
quiet of seclusion and the charm of rural beauty, consist of 
twenty acres, and are surrounded by a macadamized avenue. 
They join the City Park on the northeast side. 

(Hratt0pnrtati0tt Jfarilttfea 

The city electric car line runs to the College entrance. 
It is about seven minutes ride from the College to the center of 
the city. 


Charlotte is situated in the finest section of the Piedmont 
belt, midway between New York and New Orleans, and where 
the college is located the elevation is 760 feet above sea level. 
Its climate is a counterpart of that of southern France. King’s 
Mountain, which is but 33 miles distant, has an altitude of 
1,800 feet. The prevailing winds are from the southwest, a 
direction which brings the warm air from the Gulf region 
and tends to keep the temperature mild and equable. The 
Ulnited States Weather Bureau Station, kept for 20 years, will 
show that the mean annual temperature of Charlotte is 60 
degrees, the average temperature of the four seasons being as 
follows: Spring, 59; Summer, 77; Autumn, 60; Winter, 43. 
The peculiarly favorable climatic conditions of Charlotte are 
due, in a great measure, to its location on the eastern slope of 
the Alleghany mountain range. The salubrity of the climate., 
the beauty and fertility of the surrounding country, the com- 



parative freedom from pneumonia and violent fevers of the 
higher altitudes and from the malarial diseases of the tide¬ 
water regions, make this one of the most desirable locations in 
the United States for the nine months of the school year. 
Prof. N. S. Shaler, in his official report of the Government on 
the United States of America, Vol. I, page 71, speaking of the 
Piedmont District of North Carolina, says: “No portion of 
North America to the north of the tropics possesses a climate 
which so well escapes the extreme heat of summer and the 
excessive colds of winter.” 

“This upland country of the Blue Ridge is fairly to be 
reckoned as the most charming part of the United States. It 
has a magnificent climate; the winters are cold enough to have 
a tonic effect upon the population, and the summers long and 
only of moderate heat.” 

ijtfaltlj IRnrnrh 

It would naturally be inferred from the location, the health¬ 
ful climate and the excellent sanitary condition, that the health 
record of the college would be most favorable. The institu¬ 
tion has been very fortunate in this respect, and has established 
a wide reputation for good health. 

(brmimtp dimpurtaurr of (Hljarhittc 

The growth of the city during the last decade has been 
phenomenal. The place has always been regarded a beautiful 
one. About it clusters unusual historic interest. The first 
Declaration of Independence in America was signed in Char¬ 
lotte, May, *775. It is Lord Cornwallis’ “Hornets’ Nest” of 
the Revolutionary War. An iron tablet marks the site of the 
inn where Washington was entertained. But though the place 
has possessed a thrilling interest for a century, it is only in the 
last decade that it has developed into a modern progressive 
city. In 1880 it had 8,500 inhabitants; in 1890, 12,000; in 
1895, the city and suburbs, 19,952; in 1900, city and suburbs, 
27,557; 1902, the city and suburbs, 30,000; 1905, the city and 
suburbs, 35,000. 



Charlotte is an important business center, possesses a num¬ 
ber of prominent educational institutions, and has many hand¬ 
some residences, good hotels, strong banks, fine churches, pub¬ 
lic libraries, Academy of Music, etc. The City Electric Rail¬ 
way System connects the college with all parts of the city. 

Hater £>uppltj 

Charlotte boasts of her pure water supply. Of this there 
are two sources. The main supply is from the city reservoir. 
The city water connects with the drinking fountain in the main 
lobby on the first floor, and all bath and toilet rooms on all 
floors, the sinks in the kitchen, the serving pantry, the large 
cistern, the 14,000-gallon wrought iron tank in the college 
building, boilers, pipe-organ motor, etc. 

The cistern above mentioned is a double structure, the 
capacity of each being 32,000 gallons, containing a carload of 
charcoal as a filter. Water from the cistern is conducted to 
the building by means of a pump when desired, and is used for 
laundry and toilet purposes. 

Against 3\xt 

There is a two-inch pipe leading from tank in roof to 
basement story, with hose racks, with fifty feet of two-inch 
fire-extinguishing hose on every floor, accessible to every room 
in the building. The city water runs into tank in building. 
The brick partitions, seventeen inches thick, iron laths, asbestos 
fire-proof paper, mineral wool and concrete brick floors in 
boiler rooms and around kitchen and laundry ranges, together 
with the water provisions, make the building practically a fire¬ 
proof structure, with the best sanitary conditions. 

It will be seen from the above that the utmost precaution 
has been taken to secure pupils from danger of fire. There 
are twelve direct external exits bsides the broad double stair¬ 
cases, and rear stair-way. 




Report of the State Deputy Fire Insurance Commissioner 
on Elizabeth College. 

office; OF 

Fire Insurance Commissioner, State of North Carolina. 

Charlotte, N. C., March n, 1904. 

Hon. las. R. Young , Insurance Commissioner , Raleigh, N. 
Dear Sir :— 

As requested, I made the inspection at Eliza¬ 
beth College. President C. B. King showed me all 
over the building from cellar to roof. I found a 
skilled electrician was just finishing a thorough over¬ 
hauling of the wires, and everything pertaining to the 
danger of fire by wires, this being the custom of Pres¬ 
ident King twice a year. 

I am glad to say that / found everything in per * 
fedl order, and I venture to say that this is the 
safest College against fire south of Baltimore. 

All the walls and partitions are solid brick 
throughout the entire building. The boiler, kitchen 
and bakery rooms are cement floors, also iron laths 
with best of plastering. 

Nov/, as to safe-guards, I find that each floor has 
five or more exits from the building; in addition to 
this they have an abundance of stair-ways from each 
floor and wing of the building. President King tells 
me he will in the near future construct fire escapes 
having sixteen more exits from the College, which 
will in itself be sufficient to land five hundred stu¬ 
dents in less than five minutes. 

In regard to the water supply, I find a wrought- 
iron tank in the roof that holds 14,000 gallons of 
water; (this tank is examined night and morning to 
see that it is full) ; the water from the city mains is 
connected with this tank, and can put 32 gallons of 
water in the tank per minute; there are also two cis- 








terns in the yard that hold 32,000 gallons of water 
each, and are also arranged so water can be pumped 
into the tank at the rate of twenty gallons per minute; 
but this is a reserve water supply, in case of a break 
in the main from the city supply. 

I find water pipes with 2^4 inch hose attached 
on all floors, within easy reach of every room. They 
also have a good supply of fire extinguishers all 
through the building. There are four hydrants in the 
yard, one on each corner, within forty feet of the 

building. If all Colleges were as well arranged as 
this one, they could put out their own fires. 

W. S. ORR, Deputy Insurance Commissioner. 

llmllitttg an& its AppnitttttmtJa 

The architecture of the building is of the most approved 
modern type and compares favorably with that of college 
buildings in New Kngland. The building was designed and 
superintended by one of the foremost architects in the United 
States Mr. J. A. Dempwolf, of York, Pa. It has a frontage 
of 172 feet, a depth of 143 feet, is four stories high and built 
of pi essed brick, trimmed with granite and Indiana limestone. 
The walls are from seventeen to thirty-one inches thick, slate 
roof and no exposures. 

The woodwork throughout is natural oak and cypress. 
The building is thoroughly modern in all its appointments 
and facilities for college work. 

Seating mb HimtUatum 

The entire building is well and uniformly heated by steam, 
By means of the chimney ventilation any temperature that is 
desired is quickly obtained. There is hot and cold water 
throughout the building. 




The buildings are well lighted by electricity received 
from the Catawba River Electric Light and Power Company. 

Plumbing mb 

The plumbing is scientifically done in accordance with the 
latest and best methods. The elevation of the grounds natur¬ 
ally affords a fine drainage. The sewer pipe connects with 
the city sewer system. 


The college building contains dormitory rooms for 125 
occupants, a culinary department, dining room, chapel, reci¬ 
tation rooms, music rooms, gymnasium, laboratory, laundry, 
parlors, offices, society halls, library, art studio, large corri¬ 
dors, bath rooms, closets, lavatories and coolers. 


The building is so constructed that the sunlight enters 
every one of the dormitories at some time during the day. 
The dormitory rooms range from 14 x 18 feet to 15x21 feet, 
the majority being of the larger size. Each is provided with 
two large closets, a large glass transom on the Yale plan, 
picture railing, a ventilating chimney register so arranged as 
to bring in a fresh current of air on one side and a return 
current on the other, and a steam radiator. The windows are 
8x4 feet in size. The rooms are arranged to accommodate 
either two single or one double bed, as the occupants may 
desire. Rooms are furnished with enameled iron bedsteads 
with brass railing, an oak bureau, washstand, center table, 
rocker, plain chairs, a complete toilet set, book-case and art- 
square. A superior pattern of double bed spring is used. The 
mattresses are made to special order out of palm shavings* 
six years kiln dried, with a surface packing of hair and cotton. 
This is the same style of mattress as that used in the large 
hospitals and sanitariums of this country, such as Johns Hop- 


kins. No pains or expense has been spared to secure attract¬ 
iveness, comfort and health in the construction and furnishing 
of the bedrooms. They are designed mainly for two occupants. 

(Eultttarg Brpartmrttt 

The large kitchen is fitted up with the latest cooking ap¬ 
paratus, consisting of a large French cooking range, with the 
most approved appliances, boilers, etc., all covered overhead 
by a large hood to carry off cooking odors; a 16-foot cook’s 
table with ample Bain’s Marine Pan, all operated by steam, 
also long saucepan rack overhead, and bake shop, with com¬ 
plete arrangements for the preparation of pastry, breads, etc. 
In the serving pantry there are large steam plate and cup 
warmers, and steam tables fully equipped. 

The utmost care has been exercised in this part of the in¬ 
stitution, and no expense has been spared in the selection of 
the most efficient apparatus on the market. The general plan¬ 
ning of the kitchen, bake shop, cold storage room, serving pan¬ 
try and dining room, as well as the various appliances con¬ 
nected therewith, represent the best results of years of study 
and tests, and can be relied upon for convenience and effect¬ 

Hitting Hoorn 

The dining hall is 64 feet long and 40 feet wide, well- 
lighted and heated. It occupies a section on the first floor of 
the central building. Among the ornaments of the dining

two elegant china closets and a number of tasteful pictures. 

Hthrarg atth drafting Hoorn 

This room is large, well arranged and neatly furnished, 
containing a good selection of reference books, leading maga¬

The Laboratory is a large, well-ventilated and well- 
lighted room on the first floor of the Conservatory building, 
It is supplied with modern conveniences, and the physical 
and chemical apparatus necessary to perform the experimental 
work outlined by a full course in these sciences. The equip¬ 
ments are all new, having been selected especially for Eliza¬ 
beth College. Each student is required to do individual ex¬ 
perimental work and write up in her note-book all experiments 

The two large literary society halls are located on the fourth 
floor in front of the building, in the right and left wings, 
respectively. They have been handsomely furnished by the 
young ladies of the respective societies.

appropriate furnishings. 


The infirmary apartments were provided in the construc¬ 
tion of the building. They are separated from the dormitory 
rooms, and have a southeastern exposure. The rooms are 
well lighted, well ventilated and properly furnished with sepa¬ 
rate bath rooms, etc. 


A commodious and well-equipped laundry department is 
so arranged in the construction of the building as to be prac¬ 
tically cut off from the other apartments. 



Itatlf Ennma mb QHaarta 

There are bath rooms and closets on every floor. The 
furnishings consist of marble wash-stands, porcelain bath-tubs,

corridors secure an even temperature throughout the building. 

Each flight of the stairways has two landings, which make 
the ascent easy. 



(gmtrft (Emtarroatorij of Mn&\t 

The erection four years ago of the Gerard Conservatory 
of Music on the college grounds marked the dawn of a new 
musical era in the history of the college. The department of 
music, possessing a conservatory rank from the founding of 
the institution, developed in so marked a degree as to require 
increased space and facilities. This need was met by the gift 
of a new conservatory building by Mr. Geo. W. Watts, the 
generous benefactor of the college. This building is hand¬ 
somely equipped, and is 125 x 50 feet, two stories high, con¬ 
taining apartments for director, offices, ensemble room and 
rooms for teaching and practice. It is connected with the main 
college building by a covered porch and is provided, besides, 
with 150 feet of promenading veranda. 

The second and third years Preparatory are taught by 
the regular Collegiate teachers, viz: Misses Willis, French, 
Latham, Palmer and Williams. 

Misses Greeyer and Richardson teach Piimary and fiist 
year Preparatory. 

J^rfynols nf iluatrurtton 

The institution contains the following departments: 

Preparatory Department, Collegiate Department, Commer¬ 
cial Department, Manual Training Department, Art Depart¬ 
ment, School of Expression and Physical Culture, and Con¬ 
servatory of Music. 

ftoparatorg BtpattmmX 


The preparatory course is arranged to prepare students 
for admission into the Freshman Class of Elizabeth College. 
The institution recognizes the importance of laying the foun¬ 
dation of an education carefully. To all students desiring 
thorough preparation for entrance into the college, or to those 
desiring thorough academic training, this course is offered. 
It embraces three years. This department is in the hands of 
very competent and experienced teachers.

A student may, with the approval of the Faculty, select 
a group of studies from the degree course. For such a course 
the charge is the same as that for the regular degree course, 
provided the number of studies be not greater than that of the 
degree course. This gives those not wishing a regular degree 
course an opportunity of taking whatever study or studies 
they and their parents prefer. A certificate of proficiency is 
given upon the completion of the prescribed work in any de¬ 

The course is so arranged that a student can take work in 
special departments, Music, Art or Expression, and at the same 
time carry a sufficient number of studies to secure the credits 
necessary for graduation in the Classical school. 

ISnimnmmttB for Admtaatntt to tlir (Collrgtate 


A satisfactory knowledge of the following subjects is re¬ 
quired for admission into the Freshman Class, viz: 

Complete English Grammar, Elementary Rhetoric, sim¬ 
pler forms of American and English Literature, American 
History, Ancient History, Leading facts of English History, 
Physical Geography, Practical Arithmetic, Higher Algebra, 
three books of Caesar, Latin, Prose Composition with Gram¬ 
mar, three orations of Cicero, three books of Virgil, Physics, 
Elementary Chemistry, Physiology, Mythology; or an equiv¬ 
alent to the College Preparatory Course, as seen on previous 

Those applying for admission to a higher class are re¬ 
quired to have a satisfactory knowledge of the studies, or their 
equivalent, embraced in the course below the point of entrance. 



Applicants who are not known to the college authorities must 
present certificate of good moral character. 

lEttirattr* h\} (Erriiftratr 

For this purpose a blank form of application is furnished 
by the institution upon request. This application embraces a 
statement by the candidate of the work she has done and a 
testimonial from her formal instructor. This statement and 
testimonial must give full title of each text-book and state 
exact amount of work done in same. 

Students are entered by certificate in the following cases: 

1. When the candidate bears a certificate from a school 
which has made arrangements for the entrance of its pupils 
at the institution by this method. 

2. When she bears a certificate from any one authorized 
by the institution to examine candidates. 

3. When she has won a scholarship offered by the insti¬ 

4. When she brings a certificate from any school of good 
standing, with satisfactory evidence of thorough training. 

An applicant for admission to any class will not be admit¬ 
ted to said class if she is deficient in more than two branches. 
If she gives evidence of thorough preparation for entrance 
into a given class in all branches, except one or two, she will 
be admitted into said class on condition. 

If she be entered on condition she will be required to be¬ 
gin in the branch or branches in which she is deficient at a 
point for which she is thoroughly prepared, and go logically 
up under the direction of a special tutor till she overtakes her 
class, or until it becomes evident she cannot successfully do 
so, when she will be put in a lower class. The charges for this 
special tutoring are at the rate of $20.00 per term for a class 
of two or more. 

It is expected that scholarship students, having won on 
high grades and thorough work, will be regular in all branches; 
but if in exceptional cases they require special tutoring, they 



' ■ 


will be required to pay the regular price for the same. They 
are entitled to free tuition throughout the regular work leading 
to the degree of A.B. 

The college goes beyond the custom of most Southern 
colleges, and is in line with the best universities in this pro¬ 

Students will be classified as Freshman who have not more 
than two entrance conditions, and who carry at least n hours 
of required college work a term.

of regular students. ICach of the courses in History of Art, History of Music, 
Harmony and Theory of Music may be chosen as an elective, and counted as 
one hour’s credit towards the A.B. Degree. 

Students are urgently advised to select definite lines of study on the principle 
of continuity and symmetry. The selection must in each case be submitted to 
the Chairman of the Curriculum Committee for approval.

This department has a separate building designed and 
erected with modern appointments for advanced work in the 
various departments of music. It is provided with offices, 
director’s apartments, ensemble hall, teaching apartments, 
practice rooms, toilets, baths, etc. It is located on the south 
side of the college grounds, and connected with the main col¬ 
lege building by a covered way. Special music students have 
the advantage of a separate and distinct musical life together 
with the associations of college environment and opportunity 
for elective studies in the Collegiate Department. 

*Teacher to be selected. 








The Conservatory has a faculty of five resident members 
who give their time exclusively to its work. Each member 
o the Faculty is a specialist of recognized professional stand¬ 
ing. Each one has been selected with reference to a special 
department, and conducts, chiefly, the study in this depart¬ 
ment. All the departments are under the supervision of the 

@Jjr Abnattlagrs nf (ttonsentatnrg Smitrurtimi 

The advantages of Conservatory over private instruction 
are so manifest that it is hardly necessary to enumerate the 
many points in favor of the Conservatory. At a college there 
are many public Lectures, Recitals, Faculty and Student Com 
certs, etc., and a certain musical atmosphere is created which 
is invaluable to pupils. It is impossible for a private teacher 
to give the proper attention to such branches as Harmony. 
Composition, History of Music, and kindred studies, which 
are absolutely essential to thorough musical training. Of these 
studies, those which are not taught free of charge at the Con¬ 
servatory, can be pursued in class at a very small expense. 


Instruction is given in pianoforte, organ, violin, voice 
culture, sight singing, theory of music, history of music, and 
ensemble playing. A theoretical course is required of all can¬ 
didates for graduation in any of the above courses. 

The degree of Associate in Music (A.Mus.) will be 
granted to students who graduate in the Pianoforte, Violin. 
Organ or Voice Courses. In the Theoretical Course the Uni¬ 
versity Degree of Bachelor of Music (B.Mus.) and Doctor of 
Music (D.Mus.) are offered.

belonging to the Department of Music or not, the only requirement 
being a good voice and ability to sing ordinary music readily. 


A chorus of mixed voices, known as the Elizabeth College Choral 
Society, has been organized the past three sessions, to which, besides 
the students, ladies and gentlemen of approved character from the city 
and vicinity are admitted. Rehearsals are held weekly and two con¬ 
certs are given during the year. 

Two Choral works were performed the past year; Rossini’s Stabat 
Mater and Cowen’s Rose Maiden. The Society also took part at the

Srlinnl nf iExprmtnn 

Miss Williams. 

The Department of Expression has for its object the cul¬ 
ture of the individual;—culture spiritually, mentally and 
physically;—a well-trained, magnetic voice; a graceful, easy 
presence, courteous manners; sincerity and truth. It is self- 
evident that a strong personality, a cultured, noble woman¬ 
hood, is infinitely superior to any tricks of voice or gesture. 
When one loves the truth and lives it, and can present it 
effectively to others, he has learned the best possible prepara¬ 
tion for the work of life, as well as for the work of expression. 
We cultivate those qualities of mind and heart which lie be¬ 
yond all expression, and which spontaneously create its requi¬ 
site forms. 

No iron-bound, prescribed course will be adhered to in 
this work. If any selections named in the curriculum prove 
unavailable for the individual needs of the student, they will 
be abandoned and others substituted. 

Candidates for graduation in Expression are required to 
have completed Courses A, B, D and E in English. Those who 
have finished the above course in English, as well as the Ex¬ 
pression Course leading to a degree, will be given the privileges 
of a regular Senior, and awarded a diploma for the completed 
work of the School of Expression.

Miss Williams. 

“Of all that tends to improve the character and morals of 
men, there is no element of greater value than judicious 
physical culture.” A sound mind is naught without a sound 
body. Our aims are to gain health, good carriage of body, 
symmetrical development and grace. The Emerson System is 
taught. Care is taken not to build up muscle at the expense of 
grace and expression. Exercises are given to develop the 
lungs and chest, overcome round shoulders, prevent and re¬ 
duce corpulency, counteract stooping at the waist, make mus¬ 
cles strong and supple, and establish a natural standing pose. 

The course embraces exercises in breathing, relaxing, ener¬ 
gizing, bending, twisting, stretching, poising, etc. Drills are 
given with dumb-bells, rings, Indian clubs, wands and chest 
weights. A series of exercises is given with Whiteley’s exer¬ 
cisers and Spaldings chest weights. All students are re¬ 
quired to take this course, unless especially excused by the 
teacher in this department and by the college physician. 

Each student, after entrance, shall provide herself with 
gymnasium suit and shoes, as advised by the director. 





0rJj0ol of Art 

Miss Earle:. 

The aim of the Art Department is to give a thorough in¬ 
struction in drawing and the different branches of painting. 

The importance of an education in the fine Arts in con¬ 
nection with other studies has long since been recognized in 
the most prominent schools. While a short course can be 
taken by those who do not choose Art as their profession, the 
full course in Art requires four years of study. 

Instruction in tapestry painting will be given to all stu¬ 
dents of oil and water colors. 

Students who want a diploma in Art will be required to 
take a course in Art History. The course is free. 

Art students are permitted to work in the studio five days 
in the week, two periods daily. Students taking drawing, 
water color and oil painting will receive the teacher’s criti¬ 
cism three days per week, one period each day. Students 
taking china painting will receive the teacher’s criticism two 
days a week, two periods each day.

(JJnmmmtal S^partmntt 

Miss McDougall. 

This department includes the Book-keeping Course and the 
Shorthand and Typewriting Course. 

3ij e Aim 

It is the aim of this department to teach the different 
branches necessary for a practical business education. Not 
only does a thorough knowledge of the studies taught enable 
one to be practically independent by being prepared to hold 
responsible and remunerative positions, but it also gives a 
mental development equal to any other line of study that may 
be pursued for the same length of time. 

Unok-k^ptng (tftwrs ? 

The Book-keeping Course includes Book-keeping, both 
Single and Double Entry, etc.; Arithmetic, English Grammar 
and Correspondence. 

m nf Honk-teping 


The Budget System consists of a method of teaching book¬ 
keeping, accounting and office practice, the drawing of all 
forms of business papers and the performance of all the 
duties of the book-keeper and accountant incidental to office 
practice, by practical methods similar to those that are in 

general use in counting-houses. 

A series of the various kinds of business paper, with ac¬ 
companying instructions, is put into the hands of the stu¬ 
dent and is employed by her for the purpose of carrying on 
all the practical business operations and book-keeping entries 
which are daily performed in regular business offices. 


This series of business papers and instructions is divided 
into a number of different groups or budgets, each budget con¬ 
taining the business papers of a particular class or series of 
transactions pertaining to a distinctive business. Each bud¬ 
get consists of a number of sheets or leaves secured together, 
upon which is printed the necessary instruction, and between 
which are contained the business papers, vouchers and mem¬ 
oranda which furnish to the student the data from which she 
makes the proper entries and performs the necessary office 
work substantially as found in the regular business offices. 


Not only is a thorough knowledge of the principles of 
Arithmetic necessary, but the ability to handle figures quickly 
and accurately is absolutely essential to a well-rounded Book¬ 
keeping Course. With this fact in view, the student is drilled 
on rapid calculation exercises, extensions, short methods in 
handling percentage, interest, discount and other work that is 
required in a business office. 

lEnglml} (grammar 

A good knowledge of the English language is also neces¬ 
sary, and the student is required to show a satisfactory degree 
of proficiency in this important branch. 

m\h Sgjmuritmg dnurs? 

The branches required in this department are Shorthand, 
Typewriting, English Grammar, Business Correspondence 
and Spelling. 


Ihe Pitman System of Shorthand, a modern, practical 
system, is taught. While there are a number of excellent sys¬ 
tems of shorthand, this one w~as chosen because of its ex¬ 
cellence. It is easy to learn, easy to write, and easily read 
when written. 

student’s room 



The student is first drilled on the principles upon which 
the system is based, and it is carried forward gradually to 
dictation work, and is given practice of all forms of office cor¬ 
respondence, legal work, court reporting, etc., and the phrase- 
ology peculiar to each. 


The ability to take notes in shorthand is of little value 
unless it is accompanied with equal skill in transcribing these 
notes quickly and neatly, as well as accurately, on the type¬ 
writer. To do this requires practice, and practice of the right 
sort and in an intelligent manner. 

Much progress in the method of teaching this important 
work has been made, and the most modern method of teach- 
ing typewriting by touch—that is, as piano playing is taught 
—is used. The mechanism of the machine is also fully shown, 
so that the operator is not only able to take proper care of 
the machine, but to make little repairs that are required from 
time to time. 

Only standard machines are used, and these are kept in 
good working order. 

lEttglialf (Srantmar anil Haatttfss (Eorrpsgmtbrttrp 

The work required in this department is the same as is 
required in the Book-keeping Course. 


It is the policy of Elizabeth College not to turn out a large 
number of graduates, but to require a breadth and thorough¬ 
ness in collegiate study that will make its diploma a testimonial 
of scholarship. 

In addition to the work specified in the curriculum, every 
student, toward the close of her Senior year, must write a 
thesis on a subject assigned by the Faculty. This thesis must 
bear evidence of a thoroughly trained and well disciplined 
mind, and it must be left with the institution as a part of the 
collegiate record of the student. 

Simp iSequirpi 

The course leading to a degree extends through four years. 
Students, however, are not limited to four years; if preferred, 
the time for taking the degree may be extended, thus lighten¬ 
ing the work of each year, and making room for advanced 
work in Music and Art as elective studies. Students are re¬ 
ceived into any of the college classes for which they are pre¬ 
pared, but at least two years of resident study are required for 
graduation, unless by special arrangement the time be made

Students who have received the degree of A.B. at Eliza¬

sue and shall approve his choice of subjects. 

Immediately after registration, each student who declares 
herself a candidate for the degree of Master of Arts shall 
designate one principal or major subject and two subordin¬

Candidates are expected to devote at least one half of their

This medal is given to that college student in the regular

The government of the institution is kind and protecting. 
It has in view the development of true womanhood in the 
student, investing her, in a measure, with the responsibility 
of self-government. Principles of correct deportment are 
clearly stated. The student is expected to act in accordance 
with the highest standards of refined Christian womanhood. 
A love for the good, the noble and the true is inculcated. The 
test of experience in high-grade colleges for women has proved 
that these principles are ample for the average young woman. 
Younger students receive the attention and control which their 
experience may require. Every young lady is expected to act 
as a distinct member of the family. Her conduct is the criter¬ 
ion of the control necessary for her highest good. Parents 
desiring a special oversight for their daughters will be se¬ 
cured the same. 

The Lady Principal is an experienced officer, and a Chris¬ 
tian lady of marked refinement and prudence. She employs 
every effort to make the home life of the College sweet and 
refined in tone. 

The lady teachers reside in the institution and come into 
daily association with the pupils. These teachers are the com¬ 
panions of the pupils, and seek to guide them to the highest 
ideals of Christian womanhood. 

Experience has taught the college authorities that it is 
both necessary and prudent to have some well defined rules 
for the government of the college home, which are intended 
to protect and benefit the student, for example: It is required 
that every boarding student be a member of one of the two 
Literary Societies; attend the daily chapel exercises; attend 
church once every Sunday, and the Sunday Vesper Service in 
the chapel, and sign the pledge relating to the Honor System 
of government. 



It is thought best to limit social calls from young men to 
special occasions, under the direction of the Lady Principal. 

parents desiring young gentlemen to call on their daugh¬ 
ters on any other occasion, must send written request, ad¬ 
dressed directly to the President, which request will be sub¬ 
ject to college regulations. 

Students come to college for work and improvement, and 
nothing should be permitted to interfere with their duties. 

Correspondence, unauthorized or deemed excessive or in¬ 
jurious to the student or institution, is subject to inspection 
and discontinuance. 

No boarding student will be permitted to spend the night 
away from the college buildings except with parents. 

Every student is required to take some kind of physical 
exercise during recreation hours, unless excused by the 
Trained Nurse and College Physician. 

A student may be excused from examination by certificate 
from the College Physician. 

Students who absent themselves from the regular work 
of the college lower their daily grades, and consequently their 
chances for honors and distinctions. 

All missed recitations are required to be made up, unless 
excused by the College Physician and the Faculty. 

The Lady Principal has the supervision of the students’ 
rooms. Rooms are subject to daily inspection, according to 
college regulations. 

Parents and friends are earnestly requested not to send 
boxes containing edibles, other than fruits, to the students. 
Rich, heavy food at irregular hours is a most effectual means 
of undermining the health. 

Requests for permissions conflicting with the college regu¬ 
lations cannot be granted.

While Elizabeth College has superior advantages in the 
way of location and buildings, yet we realize that these are not 
the chief factors in a high-grade college. The Faculty makes 
the college. Elizabeth College has engaged only teachers 
who are graduates of institutions of repute, and have done sub¬ 
stantial post-graduate work in the best universities and con¬ 
servatories, and who have had successful experience in col¬ 
lege work. 

Parents and guardians may be assured that while the 
most strenuous efforts will be made to secure the development 
and strengthening of the mental powers and the formation of 
correct habits and a Christian character, due attention will 
also be given to the preservation of the health and the culti¬ 
vation of refined tastes and ladylike manners. 

Erautrh •N'ursr 

We believe in the hygienic doctrine tersely expressed in 
the trite adage, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of 
cure.” In addition to the most advantageous climate and sani¬ 
tary conditions within, and in proximity to, the college, the 
institution puts at the daily disposal of the college commun¬ 
ity the services of a trained nurse, who was graduated from 
the Woman’s Hospital of Philadelphia, and who, before com¬ 
ing to Elizabeth, had three years of practice as a skilled trained 
nurse in Philadelphia. She resides in the institution, and is 
a daily companion and adviser of the students. Timely sug¬ 
gestions and directions prevent, with very rare exceptions, 
serious illness. Should such occur, the student would be for¬ 
tunate in the care and attention bestowed by one exceptionally 
skilled by special training and practical experience. Miss 
Umberger has natural endowments that specially qualify her 
for the position she holds. She is a college graduate, having 
completed her collegiate course before entering the Woman s 
Hospital in Philadelphia. 



Great care has been taken to make the grounds and build¬ 
ings attractive, in order that the transition from home to col¬ 
lege life may be as natural and pleasant as possible. 

There is no good reason why school life may not be emi¬ 
nently pleasant. The institution desires to make it so for every 
student. Earnest work and happiness are, in our opinion, per¬ 
fectly compatible terms.

The college was founded primarily to meet the wants of 
the Southern Lutheran Church. It has the moral support of 
the United Synod, South, but is not under Synodical or de¬ 
nominational control. No student’s religious views are sub¬ 
ject to college interference. Almost all the leading religious 
denominations are represented in the Faculty, and the student 
body, in the city’s many churches. Students attend their own 
churches. It is desired that parents notify the President at 
which church they desire their daughters to worship. 

Hrltgunts (Droamzatimta 

The students have two religious organizations—The 
Woman’s Home and Foreign Missionary Society, and the 
Young Women’s Christian Association. These organizations 
have a wholesome influence and offer a good opportunity for 
the development of personal piety and for enlargement of 
interests in movements of the religious world. Students meet 
voluntarily on Sunday afternoons and midweek for prayer. 
Often members of the Faculty join them in these prayer 
meetings. All students have the privilege of taking Bible in 
the regular college course.

There are two literary societies in the college, the 
Euchrestian and Diatelian. The object of these societies is 
the moral, social and intellectual improvement of their mem¬

Academy of Music. The students, chaperoned by members of 
the Faculty, are permitted to hear all first-class artists. 

The College also provides a course of lectures, from dis¬

the young ladies. 



Each student and teacher, residing in the college build¬

shoes, umbrella and waterproof cloak; also napkins, sheets 
(.2*4 yards by 2*4 yards), pillow cases (21 inches by 31 
inches), towels, blankets and counterpanes, and other articles 
desired for ornament or use in room, such as knife and fork,

for hanging pictures. 

Gymnasium suits and shoes can be procured at very reason¬ 
able rates after students enter, according to the teacher’s sug¬ 

All articles of clothing and linen that are to be washed 
must be plainly marked with the owner’s full name. 

Teachers and students are expected to furnish their own

It is earnestly desired that parents provide for their 
daughters a simple and inexpensive wardrobe. All extrava¬ 
gance in the dress of college students is not only unnecessary 
at Elizabeth, but it is considered contrary to good taste.

The charges are fixed for pupils in health. Therefore, if, 
during the sickness of a pupil, her expense exceed that of a 
regular boarder, a reasonable extra charge will be made. 

No student will be received as a resident in the College 
building for less than one school year, or the entire part of the 
year remaining after entrance. This requirement is made for 
the reason that the absence of a pupil does not diminish at all 
the expenses of a school; her teachers and all employees are 
paid in full to the end of the session, and every provision is 
made for her as though she were present. Morever, by her 
withdrawal a vacancy is made which another applicant might 
have filled, not for a single session only, but perhaps for sev¬ 
eral. Hence such a regulation as this in all schools of the 
better class where the accommodations are truly first-class and 
the teaching talent is that of the best. 

The enrollment of a student's name on the college books 
and admission to class renders the parent or guardian re¬ 
sponsible, and shall be deemed a formal and explicit contract 
for her to remain until the close of the school year. 

No deduction is made for the absence or withdrawal of 
a pupil during the school year, nor for her absence during any 
part of it, except in case of permanent illness, and at the sug¬ 
gestion of the College Physician, in which case a memorandum 
of credit of sixteen dollars per month will be given for the time 

*Sheets, pillow-cases and towels laundered. free of charge. In the above 
charge of thirteen dollars, only twelve plain pieces per week are allowed. Addi¬ 
tional pieces, fancy skirts, shirt waists and lace curtains extra, and at laundry 


lost. This memorandum of credit will be accepted by the col¬ 
lege during the next following school year in payment of any 
bill that the same student may contract. 

When two pupils come from the same family a discount 
of five per cent, is made on the charge for board, and tuition 
in regular course. 

The daughters of ministers in active pastoral service will 
receive special rates, given upon application. 

No discount will be allowed day pupils for absence from 
any cause except sickness, and then only when it causes 
absence for as long as one month. 

Two students occupy a room. A student desiring to room 
alone will be charged $75.00 extra for the school year. 

An extra charge of $5.00 will be made for a diploma; 
and $2.50 for a certificate of having completed certain elective 
course or courses of study. 

The Physicians fee of $5.00 entitles a pupil to medical at¬ 
tention throughout the school year. This fee must be paid 
entire by every boarding student, upon entrance. When in the 
judgment of the College Physician a consulting physician is 
called in, there will be an extra charge for consultation. 

An extra charge of $10.00 to each student will be made 
for front and corner rooms on first and second dormitory 

Rooms will be assigned in the order of applications. A 
deposit of $5.00 must be made to insure the engagement of 
a room, same to be credited to the student’s account on en¬ 

Students will be held accountable for any damage caused 
by them to furniture, musical instruments, fixtures or building. 

It is a pleasure to have parents and friends visit the insti¬ 
tution, and if they will kindly notify the President of any in¬ 
tended visit, he will be glad to engage board for them at a 
hotel or in a private boarding house. If convenient for the 
college to entertain, a charge will be made at the rate of $2.00 
per day. 

The President will not advance money for books. A de- 


posit of $10.00 on each half session should be made for this 
purpose. Money will not be advanced for personal expenses. 

All express packages should be prepaid. 

Board and tuition and all college dues must be paid in 
full before students can receive prizes, medals, distinctions, 
certificates or diplomas. 

All letters on business concerning the admission or with¬ 
drawal of students, concerning any of the departments of 
instruction or the general management and conduct of the 
institution, and all applications for catalogues, should be ad¬ 
dressed to the President. 

All drafts, checks and money orders should be made pay¬ 
able to Chas. B. King, President. 

In selecting a school its advantages are to be taken into 
consideration. By employing fewer and inferior teachers, 
giving cheaper board, poor service, etc., the expenses might 
undoubtedly be reduced, but an all-round high-grade institu¬ 
tion like Elizabeth College could not be sustained. 

Elizabeth has perhaps the healthiest location and finest 
College plant in the South; has a high standard—a curriculum 
on a level with the majority of the Southern Universities for 
men—and a faculty of experienced University trained teachers 
who are able to teach the higher branches of study. 

We take care of our students physically, as well as ment¬ 
ally and morally; furnish first-class table board; and have 
established a reputation for good health and thorough work.

5. The Graduating Grade is the average grade for the four years, 
unless, in any case, the Faculty decides to count a less number of years. 


1. In Deportment, 85 is the minimum, 100 the maximum. Each 
demerit diminishes the maximum grade by one. Five reprimands equal 
one demerit. 

One demerit takes the student off the Honor Roll. 



3. Five unexcused demerits during the College Year prohibit a 
student from making a Distinction, taking an Honor or contesting for 
any Medal or Prize. 

4. Ten demerits put the student on Probation. 

5. Fifteen demerits expel. 

6. The President and all the members of the Faculty are em¬ 
powered to report students to the Administration Committee for dis¬ 
cipline. The Administration Committee may report to the Faculty 
for final approval of their action. All matters pertaining to class¬ 
room work, studies, etc., are referred to the weekly Faculty meetings. 
The Board of Directors only are empowered to expel. 


Regular students whose average Grade for any College Year is 
95, or higher, make First Distinction; those whose average Grade is 
not lower than 90 nor as high as 95, Second Distinction. 


That member of the Graduating Class who makes the highest 
Graduation Grade takes First Honor; the one who makes the second 
highest, Second Honor; provided in each case the grade is not lower 
than 90. 


The Term Reports of all students, graduating grades, degrees, 
honors, medals, prizes and distinctions are recorded in the College 


1. An unexcused absence from recitation or Chapel^(one de¬ 

2. Any violation of the College Regulations or other misdemeanor, 
judged worthy of discipline by the Administration Committee. 


Term reports are sent to parents and guardians at the end of each 
term, showing term grade in each study, average of class in each 
study, term average (all studies combined), deportment, demerits and 
unexcused absences from class and chapel; and at the end of the 
year, the student’s average for the year, her distinction (if any), and 
the average of her College Class.

P. M. Brown, Mayor of Charlotte: 

Elizabeth College has a very fine location just east of the city 
limits on an eminence commanding a splendid view of the city and 
surrounding country. The main eastern thoroughfare of the city, a 
beautifully macadamized street, goes to the entrance of the college 
grounds. These lie in the form of a parallelogram, and are sur¬ 
rounded by macadamized avenues. The college buildings compare fav¬ 
orably with those of the best eastern colleges, and their equipment is 
excellent throughout. The Faculty is an unusually able one. A very 
refined class of young ladies is in attendance at the institution, drawn 
to it by superior comforts and advantages. I have been a patron of 
the institution for three years.

J. S. Spencer, President of Commercial National Bank, Charlotte: 

I have been a patron of Elizabeth College during the year just 
closing, and am well acquainted with the institution, its equipment and 
management. Its curriculum, as seen from the catalogue, is thorough 
and comprehensive. Its Faculty is composed only of university- 
trained teachers. Its management is safe and judicious and in keep¬ 
ing with the highest moral, social and religious standards. I can 
heartily recommend the College to the confidence of the general 
public as a first-class institution.

Prof. F. V. N. Painter, A.M., D.D., author of Introduction to English 
Literature; and Professor of Modern Languages, Roanoke Col¬ 
lege, Salem, Va.: 

On a recent visit to Elizabeth College, I had an opportunity to 
examine its equipment and working. The building is large and at¬ 
tractive, exhibiting great taste in every part. The course of instruc¬ 
tion is equal to that of our best Southern Colleges for young men. 
The members of the Faculty have had special training in their several 
departments; and altogether the students have great advantages and 



Heriot Clarkson, Esq., Law firm of Clarkson & Dulls, Charlotte: 

I have been acquainted with Elizabeth College from its inception 
and have followed the institution in the splendid record of its history 
with great interest. It was founded by experienced college men and 
has ample financial backing. Its plant is one of the finest in the South. 
Its conveniences and equipments are modern, its standard is high, its 
work thorough, its Faculty able, and administration trustworthy.

John S. Orr, Teller of First National Bank, Charlotte: 

My daughter is a student of Elizabeth College during the present 
scholastic year. Her progress has been gratifying. I regard the College 
as one of our best high-grade institutions for young women. It is 
splendidly equipped, has an able Faculty, and its management is 
reliable. I recommend the institution to the public. 

First National Bank. 

Hon. Theo. F. Keutts, Member of Congress, Seventh North Carolina 

My visit to Elizabeth College was simply a revelation. I fear to 
put in ink what I really think of its superior advantages, lest I be 
thought extravagant. Beautiful for situation, thoroughly and most 
modernly equipped, this school may well challenge comparison with 
the best in the land. Site, buildings, sanitary conveniences, and furni¬ 
ture, rooms, library, kitchen, cuisine service, are all simply admirable, 
and certainly unsurpassed within my knowledge. 

PrEst. R. F. WeidnEr, D.D., LL.D., Chicago, President of the Chicago 
Theological Seminary, says: 

In recommending Elizabeth College, I would call attention to three 

(1) The salubrious and healthful climate of Charlotte, N. C,, for 
it lies in the famous Asheville district, which has a world-wide repu¬ 

(2) The College has one of the best equipped modern buildings 
to be found anywhere, elegantly furnished, and ranks in comfort and 
elegance with a first-class modern hotel. 

(3) Its high standard: The curriculum and the large Faculty of 


university-trained teachers give this school a place with the best high 
grade colleges. 

The aim of its founders is an institution that shall take rank with 
such well-known institutions as Smith, Vassar and Wellesley. 

Rev. W. C. Schaeefer, A.M., D.D., Pastor of the Lutheran Church of 
the Ascension, Savannah, Ga., says: 

I entered nine students from Savannah in Elizabeth College. One 
of the students was my daughter. I found the College in every par¬ 
ticular adapted to the health and comfort of the students. 

An atmosphere of womanly refinement pervades the entire insti¬ 
tution. It possesses every equipment for the best physical, mental and 
moral culture of the students. 

The College has no superior in our country, North or South. 

Rev. A. C. Barron, D.D., Pastor of Tryon Street Baptist Church, 
April 14, 1902, says: 

Elizabeth College deservedly stands high in Charlotte. The build¬ 
ings are new and elegant, the standard high, and the Faculty the equal 
of any of our Southern institutions. I have been, and am still, a patron 
of Elizabeth, and commend it to those who have girls to educate.
