Introduction: The general history of American academic dress has been extensively chronicled in the pages of this journal, but aside from noting that the faculty colours currently in use were added piecemeal during the hundred-odd years the 1895 Intercollegiate Code of Academic Costume and the 1935 Academic Costume Code have been in force, a detailed study of these colours has not been made.
