DEGREE OF A. M. FOR PROF. JOHN
It is learned from a reliable source
that Brown University at Providence,
R. I., which is the oldest Baptist
school in the United States, con
ferred the degree of Master of Arts,
upon Prof. John Hope on Wednesday,
June 19. Prof. Hope, who is a grad
uate of Roger Williams University,
was acting president of the Atlanta
Baptist College during last year. He
was elected by the Home Mission So
ciety of New York on the 10th inst
to the presidency of the college. This
promotion came as a hearty endorse
ment of his administration of affairs
during the last school year, and the
conferring o the degree by such a
school as Brown University adds an
other recognition to the Negro on the
higher educational basis, as it is
known that Brown University is very
particular about conferring degrees.
