e Seal of FORDHAM ffl, N 1914, the State of New York invited Fordham Uni- x 'l mer 1 - TFT 'gwfff versity to submit their seal at an exposition in honor of the colleges and universities of the state. At that time, the school's shield was, with a few minor changes, that of Saint Ignatius Loyola. It had been in use since the re-naming of the school from St. john's to Fordham in 1905. Feeling that this makeshift emblem was insufiicient to adequately represent Fordham at the exposition, the officials of the University called in Mr. Caryl Coleman, renowned heraldist and shield designer. On the opposite page, in black and white, is Mr. Coleman's finished product: a distinctive seal inculcating Fordham's history, purposes, scope of education and foundation. The seal is molded about the coat of arms of the Society of Jesus so as to visualize the fact that the school is under the control and guid- ance of the society. Around this appears the name of the University, the date of its foundation, its motto and the various schools comprising the University. The coat of arms of the Jesuit Order has the Greek letters in the lapidary form of the name of Jesus-IHS-with a cross resting on the bar of the H and three nails beneath. In color, this appears in gold on a field of maroon with silver fleur-de-lys around the frame. Above this shield a laurel crown encloses the titles of the courses in silver letters on a blue field: Arts, Science, Philosophy, Medicine and Law. The motto of the University, "Sapientia et Doctrina," is situated on a blue scroll below the central shield and rests, on a gold field em- blematioof learning fDoctrinaj. Scattered over the field are fiery tongues symbolic of the Holy Spirit of Wisdom fSapientiaj. The title of the school, "Universitas Fordhamensis," circumscribes the seal and is set upon a maroon field edged with laurel colored beads. At the lower edge of the circular seal is the date of the founding of the school as St. john's-1841.
