Description

The 52-page catalogue edition for 1917-1918 of the "M.I. College Reporter", published by the Mississippi Industrial College, in Holly Springs, Mississippi. The Mississippi Industrial College was founded in 1905 by the Mississippi Conference of the Colored Methodist Episcopal Church to train students for agriculture and the trades. By 1908 it had 450 students. Four years later, the school was running an extension program for students who could not attend regular classes. It expanded to include teacher education, the ministry and liberal arts. In 1960 the greatest number of students majored in elementary education. Though one of the most important black colleges in the state, student numbers fell after desegregation and the school closed in 1982, a year after federal funding was cut. In 2008 Rust College acquired the campus.
