The colors of the University, garnet and black, were
selected, it is said, by Dr. J. William Flinn's family and
came to be generally accepted without any definite act of
adoption. In November, 1895, a banner composed of the
colors garnet and black was presented by a member of Dr.
Flinn's family to the football team ; caps of these colors are
said to have been worn by students two or three years before
this time. The annual, Garnet and Black, first appeared in
1899. Shortly after 1900 there was an unsuccessful attempt
to change the colors.



From Bulletin No. 33, II, April, 1913.

To aid worthy men who are struggling to get an education
the University has organized a Bureau of Employment, under
the direction of a committee appointed by the Board of
Trustees. The purpose of this Bureau is to keep in touch
with business houses in Columbia that may need young men,
to keep lists of students who desire work, and to seek to bring
together such students and the employers having positions to
offer. No charges are made. No positions are guaranteed to
any student; but every effort is put forth to aid the young
man in search of work.

These self-supporting young men are among the best
students in the University, and are held in esteem by their
fellows. The rank a young man holds in the student body
depends entirely upon his personal worth.

There are 510 enrolled as students in the University. Of
these more than 100, or over 20 per cent., are earning part or
all of the money necessary to carry them through the session.
Columbia offers many opportunities, and the business men of
the city have been most co-operative and helpful. A careful
reckoning of the amount earned by students this session gives
a total of more than $10,000, which averages about f 100 a
man. This does not include earnings during vacation.

The following list indicates students' ways of making
money :

Agents for clothing, furniture, insurance, magazines, etc. 14

Bookkeepers, cashiers 4

Clerks in hotels and in stores, chiefly Saturday after-
noons 26

Clerks in law offices 15

Collectors for laundries, newspapers, Fair Week, etc. . . 16

Surveying, drafting, etc 12

Reporters, newsboys 4

Musicians in church choirs, concerts, etc 5

Managers pressing clubs, restaurants, etc 5


Readers to persons with poor eyes 2

Tutors, plant-breeders, janitors, sign designers, etc 14

Messengers, bell-ringer 3


Twenty-five law students earned $3,600 in law offices, etc.
Nearly all of the engineering students have earned something
by surveying, bridge-building, road-making, etc.


The first mention of a catalogue is in the year 1807; but
none seems to have appeared before 1809; one of this date
has been preserved. The early catalogues were in the form
of a single large sheet and were spoken of as "broadsides".
They contained only the names of the faculty and the stu-
dents. There was no catalogue issued in 1828 on account of
the small student body. The first catalogue in pamphlet
form was printed in 1836 and contained the names of the
trustees, faculty and students arranged by classes and the
course of studies. No copy of the catalogue of 1837 is
known; but all succeeding catalogues have been preserved.
The librarian reported in 1853 that the library had copies
of the catalogues of 1809, 1820, 1834, and thereafter except
1837. No catalogues were issued in 1863, 1864, 1865. There
was a triennial catalogue for the years 1866-67, 1867-68 and
1868-69 and biennial numbers for 1870-71 and 1871-72 and
for 1872-73 and 1873-74. When the negroes were in pos-
session catalogues were issued through 1875-76. Through
the efforts of Dr. J. M. McBryde the University has manu-
script catalogues of every year before 1836 and of the vear

The practice of illustrating the catalogue was begun by
Dr. Woodrow and was discontinued with the issue of
1912-13. For some unknown reason the size of the cata-
