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 of theGillett & 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 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 trapdoors inthe roof of the cabin, thus providing the carillonneurwith a balanced sound. In the 1960s, several changeswere made to the installation and a major restorationof this instrument was undertaken from 2006-08.Today, the layout of bells favors the audience ratherthan the carillonneur.--THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO I 52IST CONVOCATIONa black gown, which has long pointed sleeves. Thegown of master's degree holders is also black, withsleeves that are squared at the end. Doctor's gownsare fuller with velvet facings down the front andthree bars on the generous bell-shaped sleeves. Whilethe usual color is black, within the past half centurysome American universities have adopted gowns of acolor appropriate for each school; at the University ofChicago our doctoral gown is maroon.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 hood becamethe standard and variation in the costume indicatedthe rank of the person wearing it. They were wornevery day and served to distinguish scholars and theirstudents from other citizens. The apparel worn byuniversity faculty that is seen in old engravings isremarkably similar to that which is worn today. Thegown is a symbol of the democracy of scholarshipsince it covers any clothing indicating other rankor status. While everyday fashions have changed,universities retained the earlier style for formal attireto be worn by students, graduates, faculty, anduniversity officials on ceremonial occasions.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 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, drab for business, greenfor medicine, purple for law, and red for divinity).University of Chicago honorary degree recipientsreceive a hood with a white facing (doctor of humaneletters), purple (doctor of laws), or yellow (doctor ofscience).The first right of a freed Roman slave was theprivilege of wearing a cap, so the academic cap is thesign of the freedom of scholarship. Although the flatsquare cap or mortarboard is most usual, Chicago'sdoctoral cap is an octagonal tam of velvet.--THE MARSHAL AND THE STUDENT MARSHALSThe office of Marshal of the University wasestablished in 1895 to assist with the conduct ofofficial ceremonies. Until 1903 the Marshal was anundergraduate upperclassman, assisted by otherundergraduate upperclassmen and by membersof the faculty.

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 allowed toestablish a university that would be unlike any other.He conceived of a university that would emphasizethe creation of new knowledge and "make the work ofinvestigation primary." To this end, the University hasalways been dedicated to excellence in research and hassought the most distinguished scholars for its faculty.Over the years, the University and its faculty have hada major impact on American higher education. Facultyscholarship has shaped several essential disciplines andestablished important and distinctive "Chicago schools"in such disparate fields as economics, evolutionarybiology, sociology, literary criticism, anthropology, andlaw and economics. More than eighty Nobel laureateshave been members of the faculty, researchers, orstudents at the University. Programmatic innovationsoriginating at the University include the invention ofthe four-quarter system, the establishment of a coherentprogram of general education for undergraduates, theinitiation of a full-time medical school teaching faculty,and the development of extension courses and programsin the liberal arts for adults.The University includes an undergraduate College,the William B. and Catherine V Graham School of Continuing Liberal and Professional Studies, fourgraduate divisions (Biological Sciences, Humanities,Physical Sciences, and Social Sciences), six graduateprofessional schools (Divinity School, Law School,Pritzker School of Medicine, Irving B. HarrisGraduate School of Public Policy Studies, School ofSocial Service Administration, and the Universityof Chicago Booth School of Business), the Institutefor Molecular Engineering, and a diverse collectionof academic support units and resources, includinglibraries, research institutes, clinics, museums, theaters,and a university press. The University has more than2,200 faculty and other academic personnel, and anenrollment of over 15,000 students. The 2I5-acrecampus is located along the Midway Plaisance in HydePark, a residential community on Lake Michigan southof Chicago's Loop.The University's English Collegiate Gothic buildings,built of gray Indiana limestone, were designed to frameshady, green quadrangles. Contemporary campusbuildings have been designed in keeping with theoriginal Gothic theme while drawing from the traditionof great modern architecture for which the city ofChicago is famous. Eero Saarinen and Ludwig Miesvan der Rohe designed striking buildings for the LawSchool and the School of Social Service Administration.The National Trust for Historic Preservation praised theUniversity for its insistence on architectural continuityover "a century of social and academic change."On July 1, 2006, Robert J.
