Stovall," address not given, but I think on West Nineteenth
Street, off Congress Avenue. The grade record for the semester
reveals satisfactory, but not brilliant, work in English, Analysis
(English grammar), Latin, Chemistry, and History. He evi-
dently took an examination in the fall semester on Mathematics
but did not continue the subject during the second term.
The significant facts of the scholastic record are that during
his five and a half years in the University he was registered
for five courses in English and five in French; three each in
History, Mathematics, Latin, and Philosophy; two in Chemistry;
one each in Physics, Geology, Biology, Political Science, and
German. The credit value of the different courses is not in-
dicated, but the bare list shows his aim at a comprehensive
liberal education. Somewhere along the line, he took an intro-
ductory course in Spanish---the language that he was to use
most in his subsequent investigations - and I am sure that
he did a considerable amount of uncatalogued work with Gar-
rison, who became Assistant Professor of History in 1888,
when his subject was detached from its earlier administrative
union with Literature. He took also a course in surveying with
Associate Professor Alvin Lane, on which he received a grade
of 100. After the first half-year, all of his grades were of
Phi Beta Kappa quality except in Latin. In that subject,
Edwin W. Fay noted on a term report, "unprepared in elements,"
though he later gave him a term grade of 70.
Naturally, in view of his strongly developed social interests,
he took an active part in extra-curricular student life. Before
the development of organized athletics, the Rusk and Athenaeum
literary societies played a social and intellectual role that can
hardly be imagined by an observer familiar with only the
present life of the campus. Bugbee joined the Athenaeum,
and, thanks to his previous practice in debating, quickly became
an important member. Copies of several of his speeches have
been preserved. The two societies, joined later by the Ashbel
(the women's society), shared the production and management
of the University of Texas Magazine, and Bugbee, representing
the Athenaeum, was an associate editor in 1891 and editor-in-
chief during the first half of the 1892-1893 session. The
Magazine aspired to be, and was, a creditable literary monthly,
publishing verse, short stories, essays, reviews, news, and
personal notes. The issue for February, 1891, carried an
