The introduction at the University of London of the Doctor of Philosophy degree led to the need for appropriate academic costume. The Senate was formally responsible for regulating the academic dress of the University, but Convocation traditionally took the lead in the matter, and prepared reports for consideration by the Senate. Accordingly, the Establishment and General Purposes Committee of the Senate wrote to the Standing Committee of Convocation, requesting that Convocation make recommendations to the Senate for the academic costume of the PhD.
