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 1, 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 6,610 organ pipes in 108 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 100 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 size hadnever been created, the design consultant, FrederickMayer (organist and choirmaster at West Point),took the ground-breaking step of placing thefourteen largest bells below the playing cabin sothat the sound of these bells would not deafen theperformer to the smaller bells. Similarly, he laid outthese 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 hoodbecame 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 members of the faculty and byundergraduate upperclassmen.The Marshal, Vice-Marshal, and Assistant Marshalsof the University of Chicago wear maroon doctor'sAndrew DavisHelmaDikMartin E.

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 theUniversity 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. Programmatic innovations originating atthe University include the invention of the four­quarter system, the establishment of a coherentprogram of general education for undergraduates,the initiation of a full-time medical school teachingfaculty, and the development of extension courses andprograms in the liberal arts for adults. The University includes an undergraduate College,the William B. and Catherine V Graham Schoolof Continuing Liberal and Professional Studies,four graduate divisions (Biological Sciences,Humanities, Physical Sciences, and Social Sciences),six graduate professional schools (Divinity School,Law School, Pritzker School of Medicine, Irving B.Harris Graduate School of Public Policy Studies,School of Social Service Administration, and theUniversity of Chicago Booth School of Business),and a diverse collection of academic support unitsand resources, including libraries, research institutes,clinics, museums, theaters, and a university press.The University has more than 2,200 faculty andother academic personnel, and an enrollment ofover 15,000 students. The 211 acre campus islocated along the Midway Plaisance in Hyde Park, aresidential community on Lake Michigan south ofChicago's Loop.The University's English Collegiate Gothic buildings,built of gray Indiana limestone, were designed toframe shady, green quadrangles. Contemporarycampus buildings have been designed in keepingwith the original Gothic theme while drawingfrom the tradition of great modern architecture forwhich the city of Chicago is famous. Eero Saarinenand Ludwig Mies van der Rohe designed strikingbuildings for the Law School and the School ofSocial Service Administration. The National Trustfor Historic Preservation praised the University forits insistence on architectural continuity over "acentury of social and academic change."On July 1, 2006, Robert J. Zimmer became theUniversity's thirteenth president.MIXPaper fromrasponslble sourcesrsc- C003039
