ROSENBAUMProvost of the University'THE POWER OF OBSERVATION"bySIDNEY R. NAGELStein-Freiler Distinguished Service Professor, Department of Physics,the James Franck Institute, the Enrico Fermi Institute, and the CollegeA renowned scientist in the fields of condensedmatter physics, granular materials, and fluiddynamics, Sidney R. Nagel has advanced the fieldof physics in the more than 35 years since he joinedthe University of Chicago as a research associate(assistant professor) in 1976. His broad researchgoals have been to understand the physics ofdisordered systems that are far from equilibrium.This has led him in a variety of unconventionaldirections, such as the science of drops, granularmaterials, and jamming.His research group pursues studies that delve intothe physics of why drops splash and how materialscan remember the way they have been trained.Some of the photographs that were taken as part ofhis research projects are currently in the collection ofthe Smart Museum of Art. Prior to his current position, Nagel held several rolesat the University, including director of the MaterialsResearch Center, Master of the Physical SciencesCollegiate Division and Associate Dean of theDivision of the Physical Sciences.Nagel has received many honors throughout hiscareer, including the University's Quantrell Awardfor Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching, theOliver E. Buckley Condensed Matter Prize from theAmerican Physical Society, and membership in theNational Academy of Sciences.He holds a Ph.D. degree in physics from PrincetonUniversity.MUSICAL INTERLUDECANTATA ACADEMlCAComposed by Benjamin BrittenThat a free university in a free city may thrive,Ever the gem of illustrious wisdom.The University of Chicago Motet ChoirJames Kallembach, ConductorMillar Brass EnsembleTHE AWARD OF HONORSAwarded General Honors with the Bachelor's Degree:David Paul Hampton Stephen Orville Palm tagPaul Cher Wei Ho Katarzyna RazniakDeniz Inal Hillary Jennett RossJung Eun Jang Emily Jane SapienzaGyong Min Kang Andrew Thomas SchoettleHyejin Kim Andrew Bennett WestAswini Krishnan Dylan J.

M. Skinner (the others being at Yale, Princeton,and Michigan). These organs are considered amongthe finest examples of twentieth-century romanticorgans built in America. On November I, 1928,Rockefeller's organ, Opus 634, was unveiled at arecital by Lynnwood Farnam, reportedly to a crowdof over 2,500 admirers.In the Rockefeller organ, Skinner fully invested hisgenius for realizing a full orchestral sound, with acomplete collection of voices and many soft etherealeffects. Many of the large pipe scales, which arenecessary to achieve a full sound in a building thesize of the Chapel, are no longer built and thuscannot be found in contemporary organs. Theoriginal Chapel organ included four manuals andhad 6,6ro organ pipes in ro8 ranks; since its 2008restoration, it now has 8,565 pipes in 132 ranks.The organ's bay of pipes, located in the Chapelchancel, is a work of art in itself and is an integralelement of the interior architecture of Rockefeller.In addition to the chancel organ located at the frontof the Chapel, Skinner installed a gallery organ inthe upper balcony of the Chapel, to accompanythe gallery choir. The organs can be playedindependently or as one, using either console. THE CARILLONThe Laura Spelman Rockefeller Memorial Carillonwas installed during the summer of 1932, a yearafter its sister instrument at Riverside Church inNew York City, and was dedicated at Thanksgivingthat year. Both carillons are the masterworks ofthe Gillett & Johnston bell foundry of Croydon,England. Carillons of this size had never beforebeen built and have not been constructed since.The Chicago instrument, comprised of 72 bellsand roo tons of bronze, is the single largest musicalinstrument ever assembled. Its bells were cast overa three-year period and include a massive 18.5-tonbourdon sounding a low C#.Since carefully tuned carillon bells of this sizehad never been created, the design consultant,Frederick Mayer (organist and choirmaster at WestPoint), took the ground-breaking step of placingthe fourteen largest bells below the playing cabinso that the sound of these bells would not deafenthe performer to the smaller bells. Similarly, he laidout these 58 smaller bells so that the tiniest of themwould be directly above the cabin, with the largerones higher in the tower. He also placed trapdoorsin the roof of the cabin, thus providing thecarillonneur with a balanced sound. In the 1960s,several changes were made to the installation and amajor restoration of this instrument was undertakenfrom 2006-08. Today, the layout of bells favors theaudience rather that the carillonneur.ACADEMIC DRESSThe robes worn by participants in academicceremonies originated when European universitieswere being formed in the twelfth and thirteenthcenturies. Since many of the instructors came fromreligious orders and taught in unheated and draftybuildings, they adapted their religious robes for useas the university attire.The long robe with an attached cape or hoo-dbecame the standard and variation in the costumeindicated the rank of the person wearing it. Theywere worn every day and served to distinguishscholars and their students from other citizens. Theapparel worn by university faculty that is seen inold engravings is remarkably similar to that which isworn today. The gown is a symbol of the democracyof scholarship since it covers any clothing indicatingother rank or status. While everyday fashions havechanged, universities retained the earlier style forformal attire to be worn by students, graduates,faculty, and university officials on ceremonialoccasions.European universities each developed their ownstyles and colors of academic dress, and some of thedifferences seen in the academic procession todayillustrate that variety. In the United States, however,an intercollegiate congress in 1895 agreed on a singlestandard for academic dress in this country thathas been adopted by most American colleges anduniversities. Individuals with bachelor's degrees wear a black gown, which has long pointed sleeves.The gown of master's degree holders is also black,with sleeves that are squared at the end. Doctor'sgowns are fuller with velvet facings down the frontand three bars on the generous bell-shaped sleeves.While the usual color is black, within the past halfcentury some American universities have adoptedgowns of a color appropriate for each school; at theUniversity of Chicago our doctoral gown is maroon.The cape of the earliest academic costumes hasbecome a hood, worn, by individuals with doctoraldegrees, over the shoulders and hanging behind.The lining of the hood is folded out and its colorsindicate the school from which the wearer obtainedhis or her degree. The velvet border designatesthe degree area of study (white for arts, yellow forscience, blue for philosophy, green for medicine,purple for law, and red for divinity). University ofChicago honorary degree recipients receive a hoodwith a white facing (doctor of humane letters),purple (doctor of laws), or yellow (doctor ofscience).The cap has its own traditions. The first right of afreed Roman slave was the privilege of wearing acap, so the academic cap is the sign of the freedomof scholarship. Although the flat square cap ormortarboard is most usual, Chicago's doctoral cap isan octagonal tam of velvet.THE MARSHAL AND THE STUDENT MARSHALSThe Marshal of the University was established in1895 to assist with the conduct of official ceremonies.Until 1903 the Marshal was an undergraduateupperclassman, assisted by other undergraduateupperclassmen and by members of the faculty. Since1903 the Marshal has been a member of the faculty,assisted by other membersof the faculty and by undergraduate upperclassmen.The Marshal, Vice-Marshal, and Assistant Marshalsof the University of Chicago wear maroon doctor's robes with alternating black velvet and gold metallicbars on the sleeves. Prior to receiving their bachelor'sdegrees, Student Marshals wear maroon bachelor'srobes with maroon mortarboards. When receivingtheir degrees, they wear black mortarboards.Student Marshals are appointed by the Presidentof the University in recognition of their excellentscholarship and leadership. Appointment as a StudentMarshal is the highest honor conferred by theUniversity upon undergraduate students.MARSHALCatherine C.

Rockefeller, biblical scholar William RaineyHarper, and Chicago-area Baptists. The University'sArticles of Incorporation commit the institutionto excellence in both undergraduate and graduateeducation, an explicit policy of co-education, and anatmosphere of non-sectarianism.Harper agreed to become the first president of the _University on the condition that he be allowedto establish a university that would be unlike anyother. He conceived of a university that wouldemphasize the creation of new knowledge and"make the work of investigation primary." To thisend, the University has always been dedicated toexcellence in research and has sought the mostdistinguished scholars for its faculty.Over the years, the University and its faculty havehad a major impact on American higher education.Faculty scholarship has shaped several essentialdisciplines and established important and distinctive"Chicago schools" in such disparate fields aseconomics, evolutionary biology, sociology, literarycriticism, anthropology, and law and economics.More than eighty Nobel laureates have beenmembers of the faculty, researchers, or students at theUniversity.
