It is requested that each reader of this Catalog-ue will mark any errors or omissions
which may be noticed, and communicate them to the Librarian of Jefferson College,
for correction in a future edition. Much care has been taken to secure accuracy, but
no doubt many errors may still be detected. A few of the more important of such as
have been discovered since the sheets passed through the press, will be found cor-
rected on page 42.

Some persons may be disappointed in not finding certain names of those who have
l)een students at this institution, and are regarded as Alumni. The plan of the Cata-
logue, however, precluded the insertion of any names except of those upon whom
some degree, either regular or honorary, had been conferred. The conditions on
wliich the Honorary degiee of A. M. is conferred, may be found among the notices
near the end of the Catalogue.
