The timeline given is primarily concerned with tracing the official regulation of Academic Dress of the University of Sheffield since its foundation. However, various secondary sources have been used to interpret the regulations and place them in context. Although the regulations are now without anomaly this was not always so, and tracking down the specifics of when changes were made would not have been possible without access to the complete set of the Calendars of the University of Sheffield. Some enigmas remain. Why green for bachelors and masters? Why red and not scarlet, for doctors’ hoods? [Excerpt].
