McPherson College.—An institution conducted under the auspices of the German Baptist Brethren church was founded at McPherson in Aug., 1887. Its aim is to provide a thorough, Christian education for the young people of that denomination, although it admits any person of good moral character who is in sympathy with the spirit of the institution. It endeavors not only to cultivate the intellect but also to instill principles of morality and the truths of religion. Devotional exercises are held each school day in the chapel and regular evening prayers are held in the dormitory. This college advocates plainness of dress, simplicity in the habits of life, and discourages caste, thus making it a home for rich and poor alike. It occupies three buildings, a main school building, a dormitory and a library erected through the generosity of Andrew Carnegie. It embraces four departments, the department of arts, literature and science, the department of fine arts, the business department, and the Biblical department. There are three literary societies. In 1910 Edward Frantz was president and professor of Biblical languages and literature. There are 24 instructors and about 700 students.
