BRINKUNIVERSITY CARILLONNEURTHOMAS WEISFLOGUNIVERSITY ORGANISTMillar Brass EnsembleMATTHEW LEEDIRECTORROCKEFELLER MEMORIAL CHAPELORGAN AND CARILLONTHE ORGANBuilt with the Chapel itself in 1928, RockefellerMemorial Chapel's regal organ is one of four Universityorgans of the American organ-builder E. M. Skinner(the others being at Yale, Princeton, and Michigan).These organs are considered among the finest examplesof twentieth-century romantic organs built in America.On November 1,1928, Rockefeller's organ, Opus634, was unveiled at a recital by Lynnwood Farnam,reportedly to a crowd of 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 the sizeof the Chapel, are no longer built and thus cannot befound in contemporary organs. The original Chapelorgan included four manuals and had 6,6ro organpipes in ro8 ranks; since its 2008 restoration, it nowhas 8,565 pipes in 132 ranks. The organ's bay of pipes,located in the Chapel chancel, is a work of art in itselfand is an integral element of the interior architectureof Rockefeller. In addition to the chancel organlocated at the front of the Chapel, Skinner installeda gallery organ in the upper balcony of the Chapel,to accompany the gallery choir. The organs can beplayed independently or as one, using either console. THE CARILLONThe Laura Spelman Rockefeller Memorial Carillonwas installed during the summer of 1932, a year afterits sister instrument at Riverside Church in New YorkCity, and was dedicated at Thanksgiving that year.Both carillons are the masterworks of the Gillett &Johnston bell foundry of Croydon, England. Carillonsof this size had never before been built and have notbeen constructed since. The Chicago instrument,comprised of 72 bells and roo tons of bronze, is thesingle largest musical instrument ever assembled. Itsbells were cast over a three-year period and includea massive 18.5-ton bourdon 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), tookthe ground-breaking step of placing the fourteenlargest bells below the playing cabin so that the soundof these bells would not deafen the performer to thesmaller bells. Similarly, he laid out these 58 smallerbells so that the tiniest of them would be directlyabove the cabin, with the larger ones higher in thetower. He also placed trapdoors in the roof of thecabin, thus providing the carillonneur with a balancedsound. In the 1960s, several changes were made to theinstallation and a major restoration of this instrumentwas undertaken from 2006-08. Today, the layout ofbells favors the audience rather than the carillonneur.THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO 526TH CONVOCATIONACADEMIC DRESSThe robes worn by participants in academic ceremoniesoriginated when European universities were beingformed in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. Sincemany of the instructors came from religious ordersand taught in unheated and drafty buildings, theyadapted their religious robes for use as 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 formalattire to be worn by students, graduates, faculty,and university officials on ceremonial occasions.European universities each developed their ownstyles and colors of academic dress, and some ofthe differences seen in the academic processiontoday illustrate that variety. In the United States,however, an intercollegiate congress in 1895 agreedon a single standard for academic dress that hasbeen 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. It is placed over the shoulders and hangsdown the back. The lining of the hood is foldedout and its colors indicate the school from whichthe wearer obtained his or her degree. The velvetborder designates the degree area of study (whitefor arts, yellow for science, blue for philosophy,drab for business, green for medicine, purple forlaw, and red for divinity). University of Chicagohonorary degree recipients receive a hood with awhite facing (Doctor of Humane Letters), purple(Doctor of Laws), or yellow (Doctor of Science).The first right of a freed Roman slave was theprivilege of wearing a cap, so the academic cap isthe sign of the freedom of scholarship. Althoughthe flat square cap or mortarboard is most usual,Chicago's doctoral cap is an octagonal tam of velvet. 1eTHE 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 wasan undergraduate upperclassman, assisted by otherundergraduate upperclassmen and by membersof the faculty. Since 1903, the Marshal has been amember of the faculty, assisted by other members ofthe faculty and by undergraduate upperclassmen.The Marshal, Vice-Marshal, and Assistant Marshalsof the University of Chicago wear maroon doctor'srobes with alternating black velvet and gold metallicANDREW DAVISHELMA DIKRACHEL FULTON BROWNG IULIA GALLIRICHARD H.

Rockefeller, biblical scholar WilliamRainey Harper, and Chicago-area Baptists. TheUniversity's Articles of Incorporation commit theinstitution to excellence in both undergraduateand graduate education, an explicit policy of co­education, and an atmosphere 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 dedicatedto excellence in research and has sought themost distinguished 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 atthe University. Programmatic innovations originatingat the 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 coursesand programs in the liberal arts for adults. The University includes an undergraduate College,the William B. and Catherine V. Graham School ofContinuing 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. Harris GraduateSchool of Public Policy Studies, School of SocialService Administration, and the University of ChicagoBooth School of Business), the Institute for MolecularEngineering, and a diverse collection of academicsupport units and resources, including libraries, researchinstitutes, clinics, museums, theaters, and a universitypress. The University has more than 2,200 faculty andother academic personnel, and an enrollment of morethan 15,000 students. The zry-acre campus is locatedalong the Midway Plaisance in Hyde Park, a residentialcommunity on Lake Michigan south of 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 I, 2006, Robert J. Zimmer becamethe University's thirteenth president.jJ PapreaponsFSC FSC"www.fIc.OI'gRRExp IUniversThe ... 0no.52? :Bib: 21 �rH
