On Thursday 11 August 2005, several current and former members of Burgon Council visited the Gallery of English Costume at Platt Hall, Rusholme, Manchester to look at the academical dress in their collections. They hold some early-twentieth-century examples from Liverpool and Manchester. Notable items include gown, hood, facings and caps from James Smith and his wife Dorothy (née Johnson). [Excerpt].
