Eighty-Seventh Annual Commencement


The Commencement Ceremony These tribal rites have a very long history. They go back to the ceremony of initiation fo r new university teachers in mediaeva l Europe. It was then customary for students, after an appropriate apprenticeship to learn ing and the presentation of a thesis as their

masterpiece, to be ad mitted to the Guild of Masters of Arts and granted the license to teach. In the ancient University of Bologna this right was granted by authority of the Pope and in the name of the Holy Trinity. We do not this day claim such high authority. As in any other guild, whether craft or merchant, the mas ter's status was crucial.

In theory at least, it separated the men from the boys, the competent from the incompetent. On the way to his master's degree, a student might collect a bachelor's degree in recognition of the fact that he was half-trained, or partially equipped. The doctor's degree was somewhat different. Originall y indistinguishable from the masters, the doctors gradually emerged by a process of escalation into a supermagisterial rolc- first of all in the higher faculties of theology, law, and medicine. It wi ll come as no surprise that the lawyers had a particulor and early yen for this special distinction. These gradations and distin cti ons are refl ec ted in the quain t and colorful niceties of

academic dress. Of particular interest is the cap or mortarboard. In the form of the biretta it was the peculia r sign of the mas ter. Its use has now spread for beyond that highly select group to school boys and choir girls and even to the nursery school. Sic transit . ... The gown, of course, is the basic livery of the scholar, with its clear marks of rank and status-the pointed sleeves of the bachelor, the oblong sleeves of the master, the full sleeves and velvet trimmings of the doctor. The doctors, too, may depart from basic black and break out into many colors - Harvard crimson or Yale blue or the scarlet splash of Oxford. Color is the very essence of the hood: color in the main body to identify the universi ty; color perhaps in the binding to proclaim the subject of the degree-ora nge for engineering, gold for science, the baser copper for economics, white for art's and letters, green for medicine, purple for law, scarlet for theology, and so on. Size is a further variable, as the hoods tend to leng then from the three feet of the bachelor to the four of the doc lOr. So the bi rds are known by their plumage. With this color and symbolism, which is mediaeval though mutated, we stage our brief momen t of pageantry, paying homage to that ancient community of scholars in

whose shadow we stand, and acknowledging our debt to the university as one of the grea t institu tional constructs of the middle ages. While looking back, howeve r, we also celebrate the achievements of this present generation of students and look forward to the future of these our younger colleagues, whom we now welcome to our midst.
