Why Study Latin?

1. More than half of the words in the English dictionary are Latin and we speak more or less Latin every day. A knowledge of Latin, therefore, not only leads to a more exact and effective use of our own language, but it is of vital importance and of great PRACTICAL value to any one preparing for a literary or professional career.

2. The study of Latin throws a flood of light upon the structure of language in general and lays an excellent foundation for grammatical study.

3. In the learned professions, as in law, medicine and engineering, a knowledge of Latin is necessary for successful interpretation of technical and scientific terms.

4. Our civilization rests upon that of Greece and Rome and we must look to past if we would understand the present. No view of past civilization is as good as that which is secured through a knowledge of the language and literature of the peoples who built it up.

5. It has been abundantly proved that there is no more effective means of strengthening the mind than the earnest pursuit of the Latin language and literature.

It goes on to list the courses offered in the study of Latin.
I won't go into it, if anyone wants to know what the course listings were, I can look that up.

It is in Work !!!  More to be added as time permits.
Charlotte purchased the 1912 Bulletin Book from the First District Normal School in Kirksville, MO at an antique store.  It is almost like a yearbook of sorts, with Faculty & Students enrolled from June 1911 to June 1912.  It also has many photos of students.  She will be glad to do lookups from this book.
