Description
The sterling and gold Badge of Office is represented by the pendant Lawrence crest. This is suspended by the chain of Hawthorne leaves representing Milwaukee-Downer College. The Ceremonial Chain of Office is worn by the President of the university during official ceremonies. It features the Lawrence Coat of Arms and a silver maple leaf design. The coat of arms is a silver shield with a red cross, a lion in the upper quadrant, and a ram sitting above the shield. E. Dane Purdo was a Professor of Art at Milwaukee-Downer College from 1955-1964 then a Professor of Art at Lawrence University from 1964-1991. During the June 16, 1991 commencement ceremony President Rich Warch gave E. Dane Purdo an honorary degree. In addition to this Chain of Office, E. Dane Purdo created a ceremonial mace and four faculty wands, now part of the ceremonial regalia for all Lawrence University Convocations and Commencement ceremonies.
