Tuition in 1872

While re-housing the William Gaston Simmons Papers, one of our students discovered this small piece of Wake Forest’s past:

This receipt from Simmons, the former Bursar, notes payment for tuition, room rent, and servant hire for Spring Term, 1872. Total cost: $3.00.

    As the mother of a freshman, this really pains me. Especially that I couldn’t even afford a manservant to keep my frosh warm, clean and on time.
