1856 Catalog

description:

Title page reads in full: "Annual Report Of The Indiana University, Including The Catalogue, For The Academical Year, MDCCCLV-VI. Bloomington. Lux Et Veritas. Indianapolis: William J. Brown, State Printer. 1856."

The early catalogs of the University list admission standards, curriculum, and requirements for graduation, etc. for the upcoming school year (in this case the 1856-1857 school year), but also list the faculty and students for the previous school year (in this case the 1855-1856 school year) hence the perceived discrepancy between the Roman numerals noted in the title, and the date of publication.

For a typical page from this catalog showing the course of instruction see image P0033760.
