1864 Catalogue

These pages taken from the St. Johns College Catalogue of 1863-64 list the curriculum and shed some light on what life was like for the students at the time. It states that the "Institution forms a large family", therefore the system of government was "paternal", obtained "by means of a firm, but mild authority". The students were NOT permitted to visit "the city", and upon entering had to be provided by their parents or guardians with "three suits for Summer and three for Winter; at least six shirts, six pairs of woolen and six pairs of cotton socks, six pocket handkerchiefs, six towels, four pairs of shoes or boots, one pair of overshoes, a cloak or overcoat, and one pair of rubber boots or shoes."
