AMERICA, THE BEAUTIFUL

0 beautiful for spacious skies, for amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties above the fruited plain.
America! America! God shed his grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood from sea to shining sea.
0 beautiful for patriot dream that sees beyond the years
Thine alabaster cities gleam, undimmed by human tears.
America! America! God shed his grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood from sea to shining sea.
Text: Katherine L. Bates, 1859-1929
Music: Samuel A. Ward, 1848-1903.

THE PAGEANT OF ACADEMIC COMMENCEMENT

The Grand Marshal and University Mace
The honor of Grand Marshal of the Commencement Procession is usual1y conferred
upon a senior and distinguished member of
the faculty. The Grand Marshal carries the
University Mace, which badge of office
signifies the official authority inherent in the
Commencement Exercises, that is, to grant
degrees. The office of mace bearer is purely
ceremonial, and derives from medieval
times in England _w hen an official, say the
Lord of Admiralty or the Chief Justice of the
Assizes, was taking office or opening his
court and needed a bodyguard. Then the
mace, a formidable weapon, was held ready
to protect the peri,on of the, dignitary. From
the Sixteenth Century in England and since
Colonial days in America, it has become
only a symbol of office and authority.

!lcademic C:ostume
Faculty members and graduates wear the
caps, gowns and hoods designating their
degrees and the colleges or universities
which conferred them.
The tassel of the mortarboard or cap is
worn over the left front quarter of the cap,
after a degree has been conferred.
Bachelor's and Master's caps have black
tassels; the tassel for the Doctor is gold.
The go~ signi(ies the degree. The
Doctor's gown of black silk is faced down
the front with velvet; the bell-shaped
sleeves are trimmed with three cross-bars of
black or colored velvet distinctive of the
1iubject to which the degree pertains. The
Doctor's g6wn is worn open. The Master's
gown of black rnaterial is also worn open. 'n
has very long sleeves, oblong in shape and
closed at the qase; the forearms protrude
through notched slits near the elbows. Tue
Bachelor's gown, which is of black material
is worn closed. This gown is distinguished
by its long pointed sleeves.

The hood, worn around the neck over the
shou.ld~rs and down the back indicates the
degree and the college or university which
awarded it. The official colors of the institution
which conferred the degree are used in the
lining of the hood. The velvet edging of the
hood indicates the degree: white for Bachelor
of Arts; pink for Bachelor of Music; golden
yellow for Bachelor of Science· and camel
'
beige for Bachelor of Business Administration.

History
Much of American academic costume is
derived from regalia worn at British universities, particularly Oxford. King Alfred-the Great,
who maintained his residence at Oxford .
established sdme teaching facilities ther~ after
-the Pope had suspended all institutions of
learning in England in the year 886. Several of
the kings of England who followed him kept
their courts at Oxford and some were educated
there. In l214 Edward III granted "a charter to
the University. Its chancellor being the
bishop's representative, there was a close
connection between the University and the
Church so its members wore clerical garb.
The earliest illustrations·show go~ns which
somewhat resemble cassocks, being closed
in front and reaching to the ground all around.
Costume for higher degrees, like some of
the sumptuously trimmed ecclesiastical
vestments, was rnore elaborate. To this day
the more colorful academic costumes are
those worn at Oxford University functions.
Many are made of colored silk and some are
